Weekly photo challenge : Twist

Going to a folk charity concert and being called out to stamp the boot lol an unexpected twist to our night out.

Thanks for stopping by to check out my weekly photo challenge pics 🙂





How are you all?

I’m doing ok, not been so great the last few days though due to allergies.

I guess i am allergic to the sun a little, everytime we go from winter to summer i get crazy eczema on my neck arms and face! i also get another rash under my skin, it sucks!

It completely makes me want to stay in and not go out, i am so aware of how bad my face looks that i prefer to stay indoors and hide away lol.

Luckily it’s clearing up now , however another burst of sun may bring it back so i have to be careful and not spend too much time in it, which again is not good!

My blogging has been on the back burner again as i am sure you have realised, i just don’t know what to share with you or what you want to read.

I should really just write down what i feel and do but when i read it back it never seems to make much sense and i delete it.

This post is going the same way but i won’t delete it as i wanted to say hi.

To sum it up:

In the last couple of weeks i’ve turned 26!, spent fun times with family and friends, had a bbq, celebrated, felt sorry for myself, visited a potential wedding reception venue, got mad, got upset, smiled plenty, worked hard and relaxed.

Here’s a few pictures….













Timing is everything….

When the stars line up
And you catch a break
People think you’re lucky
But you know its grace

It can happen so fast
Or a little bit late
Timing is everything

You know I’ve had close calls
When it could’ve been me
I was young when I learned just how fragile life can be
I lost friends of mine
I guess it wasn’t my time
Timing is everything

And I could’ve been the child that God took home,
And I would’ve been one more unfinished song
And when it seems a rhyme is hard to find
That’s when one comes along
Just in time

I remember that day
When our eyes first met
You ran into the building to get out of the rain
Cause you were soaking wet
And as I held the door
You wanted to know my name
Timing is everything

And I could’ve been another minute late
And you’d never would’ve crossed my path that day
And when it seems true love is hard to find
That’s when love comes along
Just in time

You can call it fate
Or destiny
Sometimes it really seems like its a mystery

Cause you can be hurt by love
Or healed by the same
Timing is everything

It can happen so fast
Or a little too late
Timing is everything



I keep forgetting to update my blog lately, i am so sorry, it’s hard to find the time at the moment.

I shall share with you however the latest on the wedding front.

We have been looking at a few venues and are going to visit one next weekend so that should be fun!

It’s less than 18 months now, yes i know it’s far away still but i want to be organised and start paying for it as soon as possible.

I’m not really having a theme other than a colour, which i am hoping works out as there are so many shades of my colour i keep forgetting which one i actually wanted to begin with lol.

Actually  confirming the date with the church and choosing a venue are my main targets in the next couple of weeks, then i can really start booking stuff and know i have my date all set! 😀

It’s also my birthday coming up so i am looking forward to that, i just hope the weather picks up a little for it.

I hope you’ve all had a great weekend.

I’ve had to put up with a grumpy fiance, due to Liverpool losing so i’m hoping my sunday roast and a good film will cheer him up and end our weekend nicely.

Zero to hero – Day one

Zero to hero – Day One

Who am i?

I’m Vanessa, i’m in my mid twenties, i have recently brought my own place with my Fiance Nathan.
I have a full time job, a cat called Lucky and a cat called Tibby who lives with my mum.I’m a positive kind of person, always smiling and making jokes, i don’t take myself or life too seriously, there’s not enough time to stay mad so i get over things and forgive quite easily.
I’m a simple kind of girl, easy going and polite, i don’t like arguing however i am not a pushover either, so watch out ;).
Sensitive, kind and fun.

Why i’m here?

I started blogging as a way to share ideas with others, i made it public so i could get to know other bloggers and make new friends.

I’d love to be able to spend more time blogging but life can be quite hectic and sometimes i don’t have anything to write.

My blogs quite random, it’s mainly about me and my wedding 🙂

Bad week…


I cannot wait until this week is done with,i’ve got a poorly cat, poorly neck as i have lay on it strange, got caught in the rain Monday and yes i like rain but i literally couldn’t see and had to lift my coat over my head every now and then to wipe my eyes! And work is so busy, it’s draining me, not to mention people’s attitudes and nastiness i sometimes have to deal with.

I have a feeling next week isn’t going to be much better though at work as more staff are annual leave meaning more work.

It just gets a bit stressful sometimes, i am still grateful to have a job though.

Anyhow enough of me ranting, how are you?
i sure hope your week is going better than mine.

I haven’t been updating you on my wedding stuff lately but that’s as i haven’t sorted alot out.

I have got the perfect gifts for my bridesmaids though, i know it’s early but i figured these little costs will all add up so i might aswell get them now. This was before all the vet fees of course, i am now wishing i had waited a little bit, but these things happen and my pets are worth it.

I’ve been looking online at dresses too and venues, as my birthday is approaching i have a few days booked of, as does my partner so were going to hopefully go visit the church and a few venues then :).

Fingers crossed the date we want will be available.

Daily prompt – Wednesday :)


Which subject in school did you find impossible to master? Did math give you hives? Did English make you scream? Do tell!

In school i used to not look forward to just going in general aha, but that’s not what this question asks, so i would have to say i least liked P.E.

I am not the most sporty person and whilst i enjoyed badmington and tennis i weren’t a big fan of netball or basketball, i just weren’t good at them and felt under pressure when we were on teams to do good.

I also used to not look forward to english in case i was asked to read to the class or do a presentation, i cannot stand presentations or talking in front of people, i never have and never will.

Being the centre of attention is something i do not crave.

Hope you’ve all had a lovely day.

Take care
