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.

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.

Weather is getting warmer

Now that we are in March the weather has started to get warmer which I am enjoying so much want be long and we will be in the summer months. I am hoping for a hot summer this year which will be very nice. I feel like as the weather warms up I will be out a lot more especially now I have a bike I can go on bike rides. I will soon have an action camera for my bike. I do have one but I have misplaced it somewhere so have ordered a cheap one of eBay.

My partner has got himself one of them Kodak 360 action cameras which are a nightmare to get the video on YouTube but once you get the hang of it all is good. I will post a the link below so you can go and have a look. You can drag the screen around to see different angles and if I your phone you just move your phone about to get it to move. wondering if there might be a cheaper version of it out as the videos are great.

I want to start making videos but I don’t actually know where to start or anything like that I may start by doing a video on my crocheting stuff or animals as that’s the to things I love the most. when I get my action cam and I go away and stuff cause it can be attached to me it will be easier for me to record stuff for you all to see. One thing i do have planned is next time I go to a theme park I want to take it with me and use it to film on the rides. Which I have seen people do.


I feel like I haven’t wrote a blog in a long time mostly at the moment it is finding things to write about as the things I have been up to are not things that can be blogged but i will start finding something to blog about. any way its time for me to hit the hay but before I do that I better get some leaves made for this project i got to finish will post pictures once finished and what the project is for in another blog. So, Night everyone

Monday 7th March 2016

Back to blog writing even if I just post once a week. I really want to give this a big try and do this. Well I have spent most of my time busy crocheting I made my mum a fantastic scarf for mother’s day which was yesterday here in the United Kingdom.

Here is a picture of her wearing it I think she liked it she kept telling

What do you lot think. I used my own pattern but I had used a pattern called c2c (corner to corner) to get me started and then I decided to change to yellow when need be. I think I did 7 rows of the red colour and 4 of the yellow until near the end where I just did it the red colour. It also 2 scarfs’s crocheted together as I made one and it wasn’t long enough so made another the same length to make it longer. I am now making my niece a pink scarf in the same pattern just without changing colour which I will write about once it has finished. Tomorrow is my turn to pick Mia up from school and take her home which reminds me a better find my keys so we can get in. I did have them earlier but can’t remember where I put them down. My mind has been like this now for a couple of days where I forget what I was doing but I get this sometimes and then go back to normal I just need time away on the things I have been doing and then it will help. Sometimes all it is I have too much on my mind which I cannot shift for a while but it will soon pass once the stress is passed. I am going to go to bed and chill as up early as got to go to town and then tomorrow afternoon while I am picking up my niece my partner is taking Lola to the vets for a check up. So night night everyone

Pancake Day

Today is Pancake day and yes I had pancakes with lemon and sugar yum. I really should be in bed as got to be up earlish for crocheting club. Which I am looking forward to. I have also set up the extra date today for people who work and can’t meet during the week. I am going to start thinking of subjects to write about to go along side my daily blog but not too sure what yet. It maybe news related or something but we will see. I am also going to move the subjects I don’t write about any more so they are all together. I do love showing you all my crocheting stuff. If anyone can give me tips on how to not feel stupid talking to a camera that would be nice as I really want to start vlogging my day as some what I do can be fun maybe I could make videos a weekly thing. On my YouTube at the moment is manly me playing on the PlayStation want to find some way to stream games to my YouTube but not sure what I will need. I have got a programme I use for my you now which if you follow me on twitter you will now when I go live (twitter links at bottom). I am also realising how much I need to see my friends some I haven’t seen for years but have stayed in contact over txts, Facebook and snapchat. I do miss just hanging out with them. I miss all what we got up to. Sneaking food into are classes as well as drinks. Playing with a bouncy ball down the corridor and are days and nights out (even if one night did end up with me in plaster as I chipped the bone in my wrist). Now one friend lives in reading and the other ones up in north wales and I am in Essex so I don’t get to see them as often as I would like. Any way I better go I am getting very sleepy Night readers

Feeling better

So, I know it is late but I wanted to come and say hi and tell you all I am feeling a lot better but have my issues now and again. Going for bloods on the 1st March so, my liver can be re checked. I also can’t believe it’s my birthday next week it has come fast. I also got my niece Hannah next week which is going to be fun. Last year she woke me up by singing happy birthday to me which is just so cute. I have nearly finished making my mums present then to finish the blanket I am making for my sister’s new baby who is due in a few months. Which shouldn’t take me long to make.

I am still not at the gym I am thinking of not going back until may. To give my stomach lots of time to recover. I have started to have smoothies to get some fruit into my system which is working as I have fruit for breakfast most days when I have fruit but I am waking up every morning now hungry so, it is making sure I eat first thing. Tomorrow I am going to sort my flat out as, I am getting a bit bored of how everything is so, going to sort it. Also back on school pick up tomorrow now the child is back at school after being ill. Poor child had 3 sickness bugs in a row and flu.

From a week on Saturday there will be another crocheting group which gets me out while football is on. I am really enjoying my crocheting group its getting me out a lot more than it used to. I have also met some lovely people. We also helped each other to make some patterns that we have not done before and some of them I wouldn’t think of making before I learnt to make them. Like a recently made a puff flower which in the end I made 4 and then sowed it them together put a band on them to made a headband for my niece for when she goes to dance.

In April I am finally taking my mum to Harry Potter Studios in Watford for her birthday last year. Hoping it’s going to be a nice day. I have heard loads of good reviews on the day. We going for lunch beforehand as are tour is not until the afternoon. I am thinking of starting some vlogs but I don’t know where to start. Maybe I just need to give it ago and see what happens. Well I am going to leave this here as it is ten to one in the morning and I really need to go and get some sleep. So, night everyone talks to you all soon
