Hey there! So I’ve not been so on it on the blogging thing. Mainly because my pad died a death. I’m back now though which is cool. Today had been busy and I smell more than normal. In the return blog (meaning after that short break I’m able to blog more regularly.) I will mention whats been happening the lasr few weeks starting on my birthday!
Thursday the 21st of august… I turned 30. Not particularly happy about that but it means that now I know who my real friends are. A few of them were offered to do me a video but only two did it, and even the ones that Aphre asked and had a reply saying they were too busy still found time to say happy birthday means something. I’ve even had friends that have stepped up a bit too and shown me that they were more of a friend than before. Since uni finished for instance theres one who has really stepped up and been really ace, another i thought maybe they wernt sure on me but they are still there for me, and regrettably also another who I thought was a good friend but has totally blanked me which is disappointing. Anyway only Jamie and Jelmer sent videos and they made me happy, Aphre did so well organising it all. We didn’t invite all my friends and I wish I could have because most of them were away but the most recent regular suspects were invited along with my family.
Aohre sorted it all out and I appreciate it sooooo much. She messaged Mel which was cool because we’ve not had chance to see much of each other lately. Fred (of news… and ex tone radio) came and even made me a sponge cake which was ace. Stephen (who was venom black in code red) came and so did Rich (bloggy mate and ex radio partner). They all seemed to get on.
Aphre made a coconut cake for me from scratch. My mum and sister got me some comics and I got a few cards. One of my favourite ones are from someone calked Tash who is my sister’s friend. The card she got had dinosaurs on it and she drew a number 0 on it so it said 30 instead of 3.
The day was really ace, and I enjoyed it all, especially because Ruby was down here, Ki brought Mia and Matt is getting better.
Why I’m not doing the ice bucket challenge
This craze seems to have lost its true reasons. I kniw there are people I know that have done it just because everyone else is doing it, not understanding the cause. Another reason is that I feel like it’s forcing someone to do something so they don’t look uncool. I have been nominated twice and I know that one person nominated me legitimately on the basis she actually said why a donation should be made. I don’t mind donating, I just don’t think that me doing it is actually going to make a difference and don’t want to be seen as doing it because EVERYONE ELSE HAS DONE IT EXACTLY THE SAME WAY. I refuse to participate in it… sorry guys but it’s not something I’m rolling with.
I did see one really good one by ex collage friend Jack who did a breaking bad type short film version.
I can see clearly now the telly’s on
We got a new tv today, and a new sofa. Im pkeased because it means thatbi dont have to strain to watch tv. I realosed also that the sofa was the reason my arm was in pain. Becaude I had to get up after being sunken into the sofa, I had been using my arms in a certain way to get up. It was the reason for my arm issue in my recent blog. When the first arm went bad I used the other, and now that’s bad too. Luckily this new sofa is much nicer, and doesn’t have springs poking out the back, a bonus to when you have a baby that said springs would be eye level to him once he started crawling.
Also I saw Jelmer and Robin today. They were cool but I was late seeing hem as I was putting the sofa together with Aphre’s friend Vicky and then plugging in the tv. We watched Guardians of the galaxy which was a good film, Jelmer laughed all the way through in the cinema, Robin had his head in his hands most of the time that happened. I invited them back fir dinner but Robin couldn’t stay, Jelmer did though which was cool.
I’m sure here are other rants I could do but it’s bed time, nighty!
