So, I finally got my hair cut after about a year. My mom was slightly worried that my hair was falling out or breaking off. As you can imagine, my job as a teacher can become quite stressful, especially this time of year with SATs, writing assessments and a recent Ofsted visit, so my hair… Continue reading Dead Ends
Exhaustion may be an exaggeration but I'm seriously close to burning out. So, a few weeks ago, I went on a residential with the Year 6 children to Condover (Shrewsbury). It was an eventful weekend with myself driving a child back to Birmingham at 4:30am on Saturday morning after a (long) trip to A&E, then… Continue reading Exhaustion
Wow!! I'm obsessed with the Iced Cappuccino Frappe at the moment from Burger King. Not only are they delicious, they make me feel like I'm having a dessert without being too naughty!
I always find it so hard to catch up with friends on a weeknight. I'm such a lightweight and, of course, I don't want to miss Love Island at the moment! Luckily, I had a training day today so was able to leave work earlier than usual (on a normal school day, I start at… Continue reading On a school night…
Now, before I start, you must understand that I am a big movie lover. I think my most ideal job in the world would be to review Movies (and Games), so as you can imagine I was horrified to learn that Lee has lived under a rock for most of his life. Being a self-professed… Continue reading Living Under a Rock!
Well, I'm not quite Cilla but I certainly had a good go at providing my parents with a surprise. This year, in July, it's their 40th Wedding Anniversary (Ruby) so my brothers and I planned them a surprise party which took place last night. We kept it quiet for months - which proved very difficult… Continue reading Surprise Surprise!
So, today is my birthday and I've been spoilt rotten by my boyfriend, family and friends. I've reached the mere old age of 32 and can honestly say I'm not even bothered about my age. People stress about their 30s and say that they wish they were in their twenties but during my early twenties… Continue reading Birthday Love
What a world, what a world! Is anyone else finding it impossible to wear make-up in this heat? I feel like whatever I apply, particularly my foundation and eyeliner, are just melting off my face throughout the day. Around 1pm I catch a glimpse of my reflection and notice I've been rocking the Alice Cooper… Continue reading I’m melting, I’m melting!
Wow! I have the utmost respect for this group of men from The Real Full Monty. I just watched it with my mom and, although I pretty much cried through laughing all the way through, I couldn't help getting a little choked up at times. This programme was so bittersweet in the sense that… Continue reading Check it out!
Having fine hair is one of the things I've always tried to change and I've looked on as the green-eyed monster at girls with beautiful, luscious locks. I've tried clip-in hair extensions but found they dried out very quickly and I couldn't afford the upkeep. I didn't know how to care for them properly so… Continue reading Grow, Hair, Grow!
