Ahhh!!! I'm so so bad at this! Considering how much i love writing and blogging, i'm just so terrible at remembering to keep this updated, and was completely horrified to find that my last post was over a year ago! Granted i have another blog i have to keep updated for my photography business, but this was my first blog and i love this baby!

To be honest i do have 9... yes NINE draft posts that i haven't published on here yet! so i will be going through them over the next few days to get those out and then starting on my new stuff, but seriously, i need to keep this going! i love it! so if you see i'm slacking.... tweet/facebook/blog me!
Quick updates though:
  • Just got back from holiday in Cyprus for 2 weeks, and it was possibly 2 of the best weeks of my life!! :-) cannot wait to go back there in November! :-)
  • Men - However much they annoy me, you gotta love them too! (Except one screwy one that has completely made me life a misery for a few months)... but... there's this one guy that makes up for all the other pricks in the world :-) :-D Fingers crossed eh...
  • Work - Still at Busy Bee's, 2 years this weeks!! Cannot believe it!
  • Friends - Really have no idea what i would do without them! Especially the bestie Simone (Link to her blog here)
  • Everything else? It's all going great thanks!
So as i was saying, i will do my upmost to keep this going, who knows, i may even get a few new followers!?
But as of now, that is all :-)

Where does the time go?!
I've seriously slacked on this blog, even though I specifically said I wouldn't, but nevermind, everyone gets busy every now and then ;)
So... February, I'm not going to do a feb favorites seeing as its the 1st of March and I'll be doing the March one soon.
A few obsessions right now....


I'm in love with this show, i know its pretty old me saying now... i was going to blog about it the first week it started here in the UK but...hahaha, didn't happen lol

Katy Perry & Timbaland - If We Ever Meet Again
If you haven't heard it, go to youtube right now (GO..!!) and listen to it, it is AMAZING!

And last but not least;

The Vampire Diaries!

Oooh la la, how i ADORE this show... so much that I couldn't wait like a normal person to watch it weekly... no i have to go and watch the whole season on an american channel (because season one has finished there and they are currently waiting for season two) so yeah, I'm ahead of everyone else ;) mwuhahahaa!

But yeah, those are my current fixes at the minute ;)

Hopefully I haven't bored you all silly, I do love blogging, and I really have to step it up a gear, so here's to my blog a week method again :)

Friday, 1 January 2010


It's here!
At last.
2010 has simply got to be the most anticipated year so far for many people, and for many different reasons.
For me, it's because 2008 AND 2009 weren't exactly good years for me, pretty rubbish actually, I could give you a list as long as my arm why, but I dont want to bore you all to tears.
I've decided, as its a nice round number, that 2010 is THE year for me.
Like other years I've made new years resolutions, but this year, im determined.
Now your probably sitting there reading this thinking "sure, shes determined, untill tomorrow...."
But no. I've gone all out this year, at the end of most years im dissapointed, [the last two more than others] So this year, on New Years Eve 2010 I want to sit there and say to myself,
"I've done it, I've accomplished what I wanted to do this year and I'm proud of myself"


Be Happy and Have fun! :)
I'm going to be positive, and I'm not going to let people tell me how to act and what to do.

Finish learning to play the guitar!
I started having lessons, and then stopped... and then started again, and then got a job and stopped, but this year I would like to find another tutor and finish learning so I can start playing my songs :)

Start Saving!
I have a savings account aswell as my normal account, but it currently has only £3.49 in it... great savings huh?!
But this year I'm planning on putting 10% of my wages each month into my savings account so that I can buy my car....
which leads onto my next point :-)

Pass my driving test!
Since I turned 17 I always wanted to drive, but didnt because I didnt have a job, and then when I got a job, I was too caught up in the whole "I'm earning good wages now so I'll learn to drive later and spend now" which was immature and stupid I know, but then I got made redundant and that put end to that.
Anyway, now I'm in an even better job so I can start driving :) I'll be 20 in 5 days (scary!) so I think the times right for me to do that, and then buy my baby car!!!
Smart Car!! eee!! :-)

Love and Be loved :)
Pretty simple one huh
gosh I'm a hopeless romantic :-)

And last but not least, and probably the most important one on my list...

Loose weight.
Enough is enough I'm telling you!
Fair enough they'll be times I slip, but who says I can't have a treat every now and then? ;)
But seriously, I've gone and got myself a swimming pass and everything, and seeing as there's a swimming pool right near my work, its something that I can easily access after work each day :)
And I figured it would give me something to blog about too, like each month I could do an update blog and post a photo of progress like a time lapse which I think would be pretty cool, because I'm a geek like that! haha

But wish me luck! and like I said, I'll keep you all posted - and good luck to all of you and your resolutions! :-)

Happy New Year!

December Favorites

Its that time again!
December has whizzed by this year! lack of blogs and before you know it I'm having to write 5 in 2 days to keep everyone up to date with all things 'Me' :-)
So, in this month:

My Iphone;

Yes... i know, this has been in my last 2 favorites even though ive only had it 7 weeks!
But I'm still in love with it, i don't think i'll ever get bored or fed up with it, because there's always new things you can do it, like new applications, new games, and all the accessories you can get for it too! So thats the first on my list again this month!

Iphone/Ipod Headphone's;

Just because...
- They look cool
- Everyone knows you own an Iphone or Ipod
- And they're just amazing

Iphone Apps;

I think every day I'm searching for the newest and 'hottest' apps for my Iphone, and I always end up downloading some, even if its to see what its like, if i don't like it, I delete it, simple.
So, the ones I'm addicted to right now:

- Doodle Jump - Way too addictive, spend most of my free time playing it, seriously, get it! - My score so far is 51905
- Pocket God - Love it!
- 12days - Itunes is giving away free stuff every day for 12 days from 26th - 6th,
- Shaker - Shake the monkey and see how many times you can do it in a set time.
- Bounce Down - Another addictive game that has conquered too many hours of my life.
- Tap Tap Revenge and GaGa revenge - Everyone knows these, just get them haha
Color Splash - Love it!
Vampire Transformer - Loving Twilight, its a must have!
These are the ones at the top of my head, so i've no doubt forgot to mention the main ones lol.


Okay... it cant really be a favorite because its not here yet,
I'm really looking forward to 2010 for a number of reasons.
2009 hasn't been the best year for me, and for a few others i know, so bring on 2010.
Which leads me on to my next 'favorite'

New Years Resolutions;

Every year i try and have some sort of goal for the year, and a few mini ones to help me along the way, but come January 2nd they're out the window.
This year however im determined and im sticking to them because at the end of the year i want to be able to say "i've done all of these things, and man i can see a huge improvement!"


Ive said this before aswell, but im addicted, i post way too many tweets in a day and im pretty sure im starting to annoy my friends when they ask what im doing on my iphone and instead of coming back with a cool name for a game i simply say "tweet tweet"
So for those of you who dont have a twitter account - GET ONE and follow me - LennyMou


I know this is a weird one to put in here, but ive been at my new job for just over 6 months now and I'm so happy there and I'm practically in love with it and I'm sure as hell going to be there forever just because I love it so much.
And for those of you that don't know, I work at Busy Bee's :-)

So thats all for now, again, like I've said in all my other 'favorite' posts, I'll end up editing this a million times because i would have forgot some important favorites :)
But for now that's it

Simone 'Simmy' Molyneux

Well where do i start?!
I LOVE this girl!

There's the soppy "lets write friendship letters and cry about how much we love each other" side to us and the part where we bicker and argue and end up getting jealous about silly little things.
So heres the soppy side of this blog so i can get it over and done with ;-)

To my best friend,

I just wanted to let you know that you are amazing. I wanted to thank you for everything you have ever done for me. You have always been there, and you are always by my side when times get rough. I want to thank you for trusting me, and listening to me when I need you to. I wanted to let you know that everything you do means a lot to me even though it seems as if most of it is trivial and stupid. I wanted to thank you for letting me help you, even though I know that you already know how to do whatever it is that I help you with.

It's only been five, almost six years since I met you, but it seems like its been a lifetime. I never really thought that I would get to know you so well. The beginning wasn't such a great time for us haha. Then I got to know you. I began to see who the real you was. I learned to see the good in people because of you.
And Quite frankly Miss Molyneux i love you! :P

Right.. now thats over
(I never do well with words, and end up sounding like a love sick loser ;) )

Fondest Memories:

- Crying over Bride Wars
- Something happening every time I'm round her house
- Walking through B'HamWood in the early hours of the morning
- Nearly being thrown out of Tesco on numerous occasions
- Dragon Garden!
- Russell Brand & Mighty Boosh
- The light going off when she showed me her dead cat remains! HAHAHAHA!
- Lazy Town
- The field!
- Her throwing the remote and smashing a bowl
- The Chugga Chugga
- Laughing untill we're crying and our sides hurt

There are a million more things, i honestly could go on and on....

i love you SimmyKins ^^

Can you believe it, It’s over again for another year.

Christmas seems to sneak up on us each year and then within a flash its over.

I've personally had a rather strange Christmas this year, Working with children means that as soon as December 1st hits, the Christmas decorations come out at work, as well as the Christmas stories, songs, activities, CD's and fake snow, So by the time the 25th hits, it’s all one big anti-climax.


This year I think it was really quite good, me and the girls at work had a great Christmas party, and then the children had a visit from Santa and their own Christmas party which was almost as fun as the adult one!

Working on Christmas eve isn't ideal for most people, and I must admit I never like the idea of working on Christmas Eve (even though I didn't last year because I got sent home from my previous job because I had pneumonia) but still...

But this year it was nice, there was hardly any children in, it was nice and relaxed and was full of Christmas spirit whilst we let the children play and watch Christmas movies - Not to mention we have had snow for a week leading up to Christmas which meant we were definitely in for a white Christmas this year which helped the atmosphere :-)

Now I’m sat at home thinking back on the past couple of days and thinking about this year and how much different it felt, not because I’m getting 'old' but because there's some things I’m pretty grateful for this year, which to be honest, as bad as it sounds, I’ve never sat and thought about before.

I've actually watched the people’s reactions to the presents I’ve brought them, and it really is about giving :)

Now don't get me wrong I don't plan on sitting here telling you about the importance of generosity for the next few minutes, I’m simply saying:

Merry Christmas.


I love snow.
So of course when it started snowing on the 18th December i was rather excited at the prospect of having a white christmas this year.
Of course our nursery is open no matter what, which is fine....
Untill i got hit by a car at 8:30 am that very morning.
It was so scary, and very painful - something I don't whish upon anyone, but I thought i should blog about it anyway!
So, the story.....
Whilst making my way into work, i started crossing the road and stopped cause I saw a car coming and I knew I wouldn't get across in time without slipping over, so I stopped and he flashed for me to go so I did but he obviously couldn't stop cause of all the ice so he went straight into me :(
The end!
