Tuesday 5th January 2016

Still finding it weird typing 2016 instead of 2015. Last year seemed to have gone so quick but I am hoping that this year is a better year with all the friends I have made in crocheting club. I am also going to work hard this year to lose some weight even if it’s a little it will be better than nothing.

My new laptop arrived today so, as well as writing this I am in the middle of moving my pictures and stuff from one laptop the other. It’s so lucky that I have a portable hard drive as, putting everything on Dropbox would take up all my space on there. I will keep that for my mobile uploads when I take a selfie. I love my laptop the Sims 4 graphics are a lot better than my old laptop.

Today was my day to pick my niece Mia up from school. When I got half way to the school I got a feeling that I had forgotten something so, I checked my pockets and noticed that I had forgotten my keys this only meant that I couldn’t get into my brother’s house. I felt such a dope as I had remembered everything else. My brother wasn’t at home either as he had gone to help my mum while she is not well. I texted her mum to tell her to meet us at subway as that is where we go after school.

Mia wasn’t happy that I had forgotten the keys and that we had to wait around for her mum. In subway I had a 6″ tuna and cheese with lettuce, carrot, sweetcorn, southwest and lite mayo sauce. I seemed to have two sauces as the tuna doesn’t have much mayo in it so, I top that up and the southwest sauce is just so nice. When we got back to Mia’s we sat and did her homework so, she didn’t have any to do for the rest of the week and would be able to chill.

When Mia left for dance I left for the gym to go and do my aerobics class. I seem to struggling with aerobics recently but I am hoping its just wear I haven’t got the energy and still being slowed down by all the food i have eaten over Christmas. Tomorrow I have got crocheting club and I am debating what to do either carry on with granny squares for this week or start the Easter projects. I am manly aiming towards doing granny squares this week. I am going to try my hardest to help people tomorrow as well in getting some more of the blanket.

Well better get to bed as I am shattered and need to be up early and then to pick Mia up from school to then come home for her to play sims or go on my PlayStation. Chat to you all tomorrow. Night  everyone

Monday 30 November 2015

Today is the last day of November meaning there is only one Month of 2015 left. I still think this year has gone so fast. Can’t believe that in 25 days I will be at my mums celebrating christmas. I think as I am getting older that life seems to be going quicker. I wish it would just slow down a little. Sorry I seem down at the being of this blog I get like this when the weather is poo or I am just having a down day.


I went and watched my niece in her school assembly about ww2 which was very good and we got tea and cake thought i didn’t have any tea I just had cake. Which probably isn’t doing my diet any good but at the moment I am just keeping up the exciser I will sort my eating out after christmas. I also went to the gym for Zumba which was fun even with pain in the bottom of my foot. I should really go and get it checked but I am too busy in my life at the moment if it gets worse than I will get it checked. This evening I have caught up on cherry bombs girls You now chats. You now is a place where you can  hangout and meet new people. If you would like to check them out on there they are back on tomorrow at 6pm so look here or keep checking the twitter and don’t forget to follow them to. So, you can keep up on their amazing journey.


I also forgot to book my Zumba for next week so, I am on the waiting list hopefully I will get a place if not I will have to go up to the gym 🙁 which is not what I want to do. Right I better get going as it is Now the 1st December and I am getting sleepy. Night everyone



Tuesday 24 November 2015

Just so you all know it’s a month today until christmas eve :).


Today I have been sorting out things on my blog as well as doing the school pick up and dropping her of home. We also found out last night that are tumble dryer is on the recall list which you can check out that blog here. Where its got the link to check out if yours is one that needs fixing. It has really put us of using ours. Even though they have said its fine to use as long as you sit and watch it when it’s on. The fluff in the fluff draw could catch on something and catch alight. Which is not good and in a small kitchen like I have got it could easy cause the whole kitchen to go up so quickly.


My nerves are setting in big time for tomorrow morning for my first crocheting club. Yeah I did that meet up yesterday to get ideas but I have a feeling I am going to duck up some how. I got to find all the things I have made so, I can show people tomorrow on what they can learn to do. We are starting with making granny squares which is one of the main things I learnt to do first. I am also going to find stickers so people can write their names on so, I don’t have to keep asking whats your name all the time. I remember some from yesterday but not all of them but I am no good with names at all.


I am off to the gym soon to take part in my aerobics class. It’s my first one back since my operation and not sure how it’s going to go. I also need to talk to the teacher as I keep getting pain in the bottom of my foot. I am just hoping that does not happen to-night as, it can really hurt. Tomorrow I have my crocheting club in the morning, my niece is here after school and then I got to get ready for Thursday as, I am of to see Cherrybomb at Rhyl’s christmas lights switch on. I can’t wait to see them. I may not get a chance to do a blog on Thursday but I will do it on Friday so, there will be two blogs instead of the one just to make up for you missing Thursdays.


I am defiantly feeling the cold recently or it’s just really cold. I have my heating on and I am still cold. Maybe its just where I am sitting but it’s defiantly cold which I don’t like. Makes me want to just get in pjs and wrap up in my duvet and watch films on tv. Maybe I could do this at the weekend not sure if I got anything to do this weekend. If I get a chance I may go for a walk to get some photos. It’s much easier to do when I haven’t got my nieces with me as they make a racket which scares the wildlife off. Right I better go and get ready for the gym. Bye until tomorrow

Saturday 7th November

Today I have been out and done some shopping. It first started with me buying my own domain name so instead of people coming to the WordPress link you can now all save www.littlellama.co.uk instead. If you have ever wonder why everything is little llama it was and still is to some people my nickname from college it has stuck with me since. I have also been asked on many of times what is my natural hair colour as I haven’t been my natural colour for i don’t know how long so I thought I would share my natural colour with you all

good night everyone 


It’s Monday It’s Monday

Only 3 more sleeps until Christmas.


Hiya everyone how are you all? Today I am feeling good. David comes home today after seeing his Mum. Can not wait to see him missed him like crazy. So, Today before David got back I have watched The Santa Clause the movie I have also been to town to get more nuts for the squirrel and some treats for my birds. I also got a free subway as the online system had gone down so, I couldn’t redeem my points 🙂 I got a phone call from David asking me to go to London Euston to meet him so, He could have help carrying all the presents back. Which I got to see I am feeling very spoilt with the amount he has got me. I feel silly with just the 10 I got him as I had less money as bills needed to be paid. I will make it up to him his birthday is in January so if I can afford it I will spoil him then. I actually got to london Euston an hour earlier then I should have done. So, I rang David and he said I could get a Burger King while I wait (Yes diet is being ruined). The arrivals board annoyed me as it one minute said his train was on time, the next minute he was late. Lucky though he was on time. When we got home he got all my presents out and showed me home many gifts I had. Since then he has been playing games on his computer while I have been editing some photos of my birds that I took yesterday I will add some to this blog for you all to see. I am going to leave this here  Night, Night everyone


Sickness, Shopping and tiredness

So, people last time I did a blog was Throw back Thursday and its now Saturday I am going to apologize for this as I haven’t been well. On Thursday I went Christmas shopping with my mum and her friend Emma. It was a good day but we had a German sausage for lunch and i started feeling sick after eating it. After shopping I went back to mum’s for dinner . When I got home I wrapped his presents up and let the birds out. At about 8pm I started feeling really ill and had a headache so decided to call it a night so, I put the birds to bed and got into bed myself. isn’t great though when your on your own you hear every bang? so, it wakes you up.


Friday I woke up at 9am so I must have needed the sleep I got I spent my morning doing housework even though I wasn’t feeling too great. I manged to have about an hour sit down before going to pick Mia up from school and taking her home. After taking her home I went to Aldi to get a few bits and to get my dinner from the takeaway as I was in no mood to cook. When I got home I let the birds have a fly before we went to bed as I wasn’t feeling my self in fact i felt worse. During the night I was woken up by pain in my back and when this happens the only thing to help is a Wheaties bags one I lay on and one on my stomach. I am not to sure what the stomach one does but if I don’t do it the pain don’t go. While I was waiting for my Wheaties bags to do in the microwave I was sick and the pain went a little. I manged to get back to sleep.


Today I have been out getting the rest of Davids Christmas presents which I am hoping he will like. I have also watched a couple of Christmas films started of with the Santa clause 2 then Santa clause 3. I have also done some crocheting and come up with this so far

Lola and my crocheting project

Hope you can see it in that picture would taken a new one but crocheting is in the living room and I am in bed while I am writing this blog. I have also done a little bit more to that granny square I am turning it into a massive blanket :). Well as you have seen not been to the gym and I will not be going until Monday but not for the xmas group cycling I have cancelled that but will still be doing my group cycling on Tuesday 🙂 Blogs will be up as normal from tomorrow unless I am ill that’s the only time one will be missed so until then Night everyone

Its Monday

Sorry this is up late but I have been busy trying to take pictures of stars. Will add pictures to a blog soon. Today I have been into town and got my Nan’s Christmas present and my aunties present. I also picked up the rest of Tash’s birthday present which I am hoping she likes. As I was picking up Hannah today from school I decided to take Amber’s present to her as its her birthday on thursday I can not believe she is going to be 2 its gone so fast. We got her a Peppa Pig onsie as she is into peppa pig at the moment and she seemed very happy with it pointing out peppa pig on it. After I got home after seeing Hannah and Amber I went down to see Sue and I showed her again how to upload pictures to her Facebook but this time she wrote it down so she wouldn’t forget how to upload them. Tomorrow I am picking up Mia from school and then off to group cycling. I have just booked last weeks even though I am booked in on the Monday for the two 45 minutes class I thought it would still be best to do the Tuesday to keep up the Tuesday routine. Well that’s all for tonight I will blog again tomorrow.Night everyone

It’s Sunday

Today is Sunday so tomorrow is Monday. Well today I have been on a little journey to Rainham. We only went here to go and get something that we also got the other days these ribbons

Unwrap Joy

Unwrap Joy


This is the one we got for me and the owl for my Christmas present who is sat by my Christmas tree as he is not being wrapped. On way back to the train station we could hear noises and we found a pub that had aviaries  in the pub garden. In the aviaries in the first one was budgies, cockatiels and Guinea-pigs I wouldn’t have thought they would have Guinea-pigs in with birds but in the next aviary had finches and a rabbit in it and last aviary had Rosella’s, ring neck parakeets, a duck and fishes. I always thought a guinea-pig or rabbit would injury or kill a bird?

After we got home we did our housework then i did some crocheting I am in the middle of making my auntie Pam’s Christmas present I will not be posting a picture of it until Christmas day. Which I am kind of looking forward to but Christmas to me does not feel the same.


I am looking also for more blogs to follow if you know of any good ones please leave a comment below with the link or tweet me them by clicking here. You can also find me on Facebook here. Until tomorrow which I am going to try to put this up before 9pm talk to you all soon
