Ive spent my day designing, emailing and blogging as well as trying to sort the problem of none existent money to expand my business :/, I've been looking into funding which is very stressy anyone got any advice or experience setting up a creative business?
anyway my day has considerably cheered up by the boy picking me up and taking me to his, he has three brothers and the loveliest muma and papa in the world. as you can guess from there being four boys the house is never quite and i love it!! you just cant be miserable in this house as someone will make you laugh whether you like it or not. we've had a BBQ and chilled in the garden while the papa and one of the brothers made a fence. the boy cleaned some fancy car parts and i took pictures of the pretty flowers that have come out over the past two weeks. Its starting to go dark now so I'm sat on the sofa in my Jim jams waiting for big brother to come on :) (my very guilty pleasure, i love it!!)
I'm off camping with all of the boys family at the weekend, im very excited!! there will be 22 of us, ill blog more on that one at some point.
Does anyone know how i can blog from a blackberry??
photos are of the boys mamas pretty garden
my dairy for the next 6 weeks is getting packed!!
it goes something like this:
babysit 3 dogs
away with the boy
visit may lovely gran
friends from Somerset stay at ours
big family holiday with aunties grandparents etc
AND THEN BAM!!! its the 14th of September and I'm off to university and this scares the heebee jeebees out of me! i am going to miss the boy way too much!! but I'm also so excited, about all the opportunity's it will open up for me and for the business More than a Memory!
What are the major things i should defiantly have on my list to pack for university?
Any other tips for the change to university living away from home and all of that jazz?
On Thursday me and the mother found an amazing last minute deal to go to a spa for the weekend, for some muma and baba time before uni.
we set off from buxton at nine, and when we were ten minutes away from the spa which is 2 hours away from our house, we had to stop on the motorway because i get really bad car sickness, when i was feeling slightly better and looking a little less green, i got back in the car and we attempted to start the engine and.... nothing.
we continued to try until we realised nothing was going to happen, so we rang the lovely RAC people, and they said it would be up to 3 hours until anyone would be able to get to us. At this point the heavens open and the rain began. To anyone else this would be hell, but me and mum had wanted to go away without any boys for none stop chat, and chat we did the three hours flew by but the problem was id forgotten breakfast and it was getting on to two o'clock so i was beginning to get pretty peckish :(.
Then i really cheery RAC man named Kevin arrived and did all the car business and then made that scary hissing sucking in of breath noise that makes you feel like you've been kicked in the stomach. and said it was the time belt and the car would have to be towed home and would cost over 700 to repair (trust me are car isn't even worth 700). And that wed have to wait for a RAC man with a tow truck, which would take another hour and a half. at this point me and the mother began to panic slightly, because the thought of traveling the 2 hours home after waiting only ten minutes away from our luxurious weekend to swap cars and drive back was just to much! that would have meant that the whole journey would have taken over ten hours. but luckily when the tow man arrived he told us he'd take us to the spa on the tow truck :) so me and mum became all excited and giggly again.
When we arrived me and mum where overwhelmed, because if you knew me or mum you'd realise spas arn't really where you'd usually find us especially not a four star resort (thank god for last minute.com and its amazing deals) my mum spends her days walking through the countryside in wellies and a massive waterproof for work. so we felt so posh!!! it was great!! the room was amazing it had a TV twice the size of our one at home.
Then began one of the best weekends of my life! It was amazing to properly relax which i can admit I'm really bad at and just spend time with my mum!! the best mum in the world may i add.
The picture was what we decided was the cure for a day car madness ;)

Wednesday, 21 July 2010
so here goes for the next two months i have too:
- blog daily about any excitements
- contact the blogger's that inspire me ( at least one a week )
- take new photographs everyday, blog at least one photo a day
- blog at least one drawing a day ( drawing is not a strong point of mine so this is to improve my skills)
I want my blog for the next few months to turn into a online creative dairy and share things that i usually wouldn't. This is a big challenge for me as i can be a quite private person especially when i comes to my work.
So here goes nothing :) wish me luck!!!!
the picture is from mine and the boys amazing camping adventure :)!!!!!
This past week the sunshine has gone, and been replaced with rain but so much fun can be had in the rain :). Heres the update on my rainy week.
My mum is the wonder of my live, in my opinion the most amazing woman to walk the planet, any way shes been working away allot lately spreading her laughter over the the land of Ireland, so when she came back we decided to go for a girly meal at a tapas bar, then the rains came down, the ceiling leaked and the bar flooded, me and mum as usual sat there with uncontrollable giggles.
Then me and the boy took the mighty max the moose (my beautiful woofter) on plenty of rainy walks where i ran around singing in the rain and the note book style kisses.
Buxton carnival is the event of the year in buxton the whole town adventures out of there houses into the rainy town and consumes alcohol dances smiles and talks to people they haven't spoken to in years and watches the colourful parade filled with pirates, princesses, music, dancers horses and so much more. and this year the arrival of torrential rain. so spent the day running to shelter and spinning round laughing on fair rides and eating bright pink candy floss.
