Crocheted blanket

Recently I have bought some wool from Aldi and was thinking of what to do with it. So, I decided to make myself a blanket out of it. I only got one pack which had four balls of wool in the pack which I thought was going to be enough using a 6mm hook but after finishing the four balls I noticed it wasn’t big enough so, I got four more and carry on. after I finished the four balls I decided to put a border on it to finish what I did and it looks like this

I am really happy how it looks and can not wait to get snuggled under it well if that is if I get to keep it with a number of people who want it. I hope you all like to chat soon.

Cherrybomb girls

As you, all know I am a big fan of Cherrybomb girls. If you have never heard them please go and check them out. They recently went on X Factor where they got through to boot camp. Which I am very proud of them they did soo well. I just wasn’t happy they never got shown singing. I was shouting so, much at the TV when they didn’t show but hopefully, they can make it without that show. I know I will be supporting them through everything and can not wait for their own music to be released.

They have today put up a new cover which they are doing every Tuesday at 7pm UK time so, every Tuesday I will be posting there cover up so, you don’t miss out. So here is their recent one

I hope you like it as much as I do.

Tiring day

Today has been a tiring day. It started off with not getting much sleep. I feel asleep at about 2am then was back up at 8am. I got up and got ready to go to the gym. I decided before I left I would check my laptop and it said nothing had bee  done so left it at that and went to the gym. My gym class today was zumba at the moment until I get back of holiday it’s the only class I am doing well today’s was the last until I get back. I really enjoyed it. After the gym I went and waited outside my friends children’s nursery to wait and pick them up. After I picked them up I took them to the park for a few hours while we waited for them mum. They had so much fun just running around the park enjoying themselves. I popped into the gatehouse coffee shop to speak to the lovely staff as it’s were I am holding my Christmas party for crocheting club it is also where we hold are club 2 days a week as well as the library I love it in there staff our so friendly and the food and drink our amazing. If your ever in Wickford I would try them out there waffles are just to die for and the milkshakes well just to say I really enjoy them all. I manged to get that sorted then I had to deal with secret santa as one lady has dropped out. Lucky it was easy to do. Tomorrow I got crocheting club and then an afternoon of packing ready for Sunday as I am stopping at my mums (hopefully she freezes me some mac and cheese if not she’s in trouble).  Also need to sort my flat out I did some yesterday but with the weather being hot still it’s hard to get motivated but that’s all meant to change tomorrow. We are according to the weather forecast going to get rain and thunder which will end the hot weather. I want mind when it’s collection a little hate being too hot and hate being too cold. Well I am going to say night and I hope you all have a good sleep. Hopefully blog again tomorrow or Saturday 

Too hot

It’s 10pm I  have decided it’s time to go to bed as it’s alt cooler in my bedroom. Well that’s what I thought I am actually boiling hot. The weather here in the UK normally cools down in September but it hasn’t it feels like we our in the middle of summer. It’s meant to cool down by next week which I am hoping as, I am going away with me mum for couple of days for a little break. Hopefully I will have Internet as, now I have my tab back I can blog a little bit more. My computer has had to go back for repair with Toshiba the fault I sent it with was still there when I got it back. The fault with it that it will not charge past 80% I know it’s not a big fault but I not had my computer for a year yet so, I want it fixing. I have also had to put a complaint into them as not happy with how they have dealt with it as, at first they were saying they had lost my computer then suddenly it reapers but it took them a week to find it. They have been good on the phone but have been told one thing and then another next time we ring. Hopefully I will have a fixed laptop soon. I am also having trouble with my wrist which I have broken in the past. A lady fell over in zumba last week but grabbed my wrist as she fell now my wrist been hurting since. My crocheting has been done in small amounts ad can’t do it for long before my wrist it in pain. Talking of crocheting I now have an extra day of crocheting which is a Friday. We our already starring our secret santa as, we have to make the person their gift. Just working out what to do my person. My niece Mia started secondary school last week it feels so, strange not having to go pick her up after school. I am hoping that my phone has finished updating soon as I started that when I started this blog ewhich was half an hour ago. Well I am going to leave this hear hopefully I sleep so can get up early have a shower then go to crocheting club so, goodnight everyone I hope you all have a nice day tomorrow.

Adventure Island Southend

On Sunday 7TH of August I took my niece Hannah to Southend Adventure Island. I didn’t tell her that is where we were going I told her that we were going to have a picnic with nanny, Marc and Hay. While walking to the train station I decided to go live on Facebook so, people could see her reaction she was more upset that she wasn’t seeing her Nanny then anything, but once we got on the train she started to get excited about going on all the rides. When we got there we went and met Marc and Hay at their train station as they came in on a different line to us. Once we met up with Marc and Hay Marc needed to get some food so, we headed for McDonalds so he could get his breakfast. Hannah also got some pancakes which I helped her eat. We then headed towards Adventure Island which wasn’t open yet, but we had a little walk to the far end gates where we watched the entertainers rehearsing for the day’s entertainment. At 11am they opened the gates and we went straight in to get our wristbands. My niece decided that because green scream wasn’t open yet that we attempted Rage as our very first ride I have never ever been on Rage so, I didn’t know what to expect, but we did it. I hated the drop on the ride and the loop, but after that it was good and I would go on it again, but maybe when Hannah is a little bigger as, she moved forward with the drops and got thrown back in her seat straight away so got knocked a little, but has said she would go back on, but when she is bigger.

We went on the water slides we did a couple more rides before we went for lunch at KFC which was very nice. After lunch, Marc and Hay went off and did their own thing while me and Hannah did even more rides. We also got loads of slush puppies for our drinks as it was a very hot day. We left at about 8pm as, we were both getting very tired. We walked down to the train station with a quick food stop at McDonald’s before heading to the train station to catch the train home. We got home for 10pm. Where we both got cuddled up and in bed and went to sleep as, we were both so tired. Lucky we didn’t have to be up early in the morning. This isn’t the only day I went to Southend I also went on Tuesday  16TH with my oldest niece Mia. Which was nearly the same day, but I was not feeling well as I had a shock in my dinner the night before which I will be writing about soon. I didn’t let that get in my way I stilled tried to enjoy the day. I even went live on one of the rides, but the phone signal is not good so kept cutting out so, i have decided that next time I will take my action camera, but this will probably be next year now. I am also waiting for a reply back from Adventure Island as I wasn’t happy with them binning donuts just because they were not donuts shape, but they have plenty of homeless walking around the park who could off had the donuts or of sold them as missed shaped donuts. I know I didn’t care they were the wrong shape and Mia didn’t either. I will let you all know how I get on with that one. Any way I am going to leave this here and say night and sorry it has taken me a while to write this blog and goodnight everyone  

  

Pokemon Go

some information for those who don’t know what Pokemon go is. with Pokemon go, you can travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokémon. which can found for iPhone and Android devices searching the app markets. Pokémon GO allows you to find and catch more than a hundred species of Pokémon as you explore your surroundings.

It uses the real-world locations so, where ever you live will be the setting for Pokemon go. Whenever you are near a Pokemon your phone will vibrate to tell you that you are near one.

I have been playing Pokemon go now since it went live in the UK. it has got me walking a lot more but it does kill your phone battery quickly even in power saving mode. I have only got to level 5 but I am sure I will get up more levels soon. I have found that most people in my area hang around a clock tower as it is a Pokemon gym where you can train and fight with other Pokemon players. there is also Pokemon pit stops where you spin the sign and it gives out few items for you to be able to carry on finding more Pokemon. so far I have got a Bulbasaur, Pidgey, Pidgeotto, Rattata, Raticate, Spearow, Zubat, Paras, Psyduck, Poliwag, Shellder, Staryu and Drowzee. I really want to find Pikachu.

 

I have seen soo many articles of people being in accidents and trespassing into people gardens and into buildings there not allowed into but you can stand outside as long as the Pokemon is in the ring going around you, you can click the Pokemon on your screen so you can catch it. I have not yet myself had to climb a fence or anything like that and if I had to I wouldn’t be stupid and do that I would just move on and find another one.

 

I have seen so many people complaining about this game but I like it the only problem I can see is everyone is always looking at their phones and not where they are going  so, you get people walking into you or just walk across the road without looking but you really don’t have to keep looking at your phone as if you got app open it vibrates to let you know there is a Pokemon nearby so no need to try and get yourself killed while trying to find a Pokemon.

 

all I have to say now is when playing the game just remember where you are and keep yourself safe. thanks for reading and I will be playing this game until I get bored of it.

Hardest Thing

The hardest thing I find hard after writing blogs which I am all sure that you all are aware of as it takes me weeks to write one. the next thing I find difficult is my weight. I have been going to the gym now for nearly two years and I have only lost 6lbs. every time I get my weight lowers it goes straight back on again which is so annoying. maybe it’s because I no longer doing the spin class or could it be that I don’t do any weights. all I do is cardio which is 3 classes of two Zumba classes and an aerobics class in the middle. I think  I need to start thinking about going up to the gym and doing a proper workout. the only issue I have about going up to the gym is I always get a feeling that people are watching me. I am sure they don’t and I am just imaging it. it doesn’t stop that thought going through my head and then i go all panicky and stop my workout but I got to start pushing myself or I am never going to get this weight off. I really do like going to my classes which I am fine doing but do sometimes get a feeling people are watching me.

Hopefully, my plan on what I want to do happens I can’t keep letting my problems get to me. I need to do this for me and only me.

Thanks for reading
