Goodbye

For Christmas my Dad bought me and my sister Trinity tickets to see JLS. Obviously we had to have this early as the concert was on the Friday 20th of December in Leeds. I'm so lucky that I got to see one of their last concerts. Yes I'm 23 and no I'm not ashamed to admit that I love them. This was Trin's first proper concert also so she was really excited as she had thought she would never get to see them.

Above is a video of Trin's reaction when my Dad told her she was going to see them. Sorry the sound isn't great but you can make out how shocked she was, and Mum Dad and Trin all cried *awww*. 

So I wanted to write this post so that Aston, Marvin, JB and Ortise could see how much they meant to their fans. I had see them before when I was in the audience of Lee Macks all star cast, and if I remember correctly JB's pants ripped during their performance. Unfortunately when I went to T4OTB in 2011 they didn't end up performing which sucked as I along with my cousins had waited since 5am to see them. I'm so glad I got to see them one last time. I know a lot of people think at 23 I shouldn't be all fan girling over JLS but come on guys Take That had fans like that before they got back together!! I hope that one day JLS will do a reunion tour with meet and greet packages please. 

I just want to say thank you JLS for all your music and beautifulness, also with helping me realise it doesn't matter how old you are you can still enjoy boy bands. You were never my guilty pleasure and I never hid my love for you, my only regret is that I never bought the meet and greets oh and didn't hang about after Lee Mack. I wish you all good luck in your new career paths always have fun and never lose the friendship you guys have. 

Thank you

Juggling life

I have been a bit quiet on the blogging front lately, but I'm back and trying to juggle my life. I know lots of mummies and daddies work and juggle a child but we are just finding the right way to do it.

This week I have started my new job as a rapid response cleaner in the hospital. I had a nightmare trying to find childcare a week before I started work, yeah I had the interview and was told you got the job you start next week. So I joined a few online websites and I found a lady and arranged to go to her's prior to needing her on Monday. I never made it to her house as bus drivers had no idea what bus stop I was on about, the outcome was me crying thinking why am I bothering and generally just annoyed about the situation. I put a rant on facebook and asked if anyone could help me out, I don't have any friends in Wakefield so at this point I was thinking I'm not going to be able to have this job. Luckily a girl I had not long met (through net mums) offered to watch him for me, I was so happy and really appreciate this girl helping me out. So metaphorically speaking that was one juggling ball done.

As you may know by now I am studying with the Open University to gain a degree in psychology and criminology, this year I have added introduction to law. So I have essay's due and reading and online activities to do. I struggle with social science so need to put more into that. This is my second juggling ball up in the air.

The third ball is the house, I still need to wash clothes, cook dinner (although I don't eat until I finish work at 8:30), and all the other house chores. 

My blog is my fourth ball, I enjoy blogging so I don't want to stop if it means that I can only manage one post a week then fine I will do that. In the new year I hope to be bringing you a lot more reviews, I'm actually just finishing off my testing stage on a certain product then a review will be up for you lovely lot. 

Now when I juggle I can only juggle with three balls but I have five to juggle with in my life that isn't added the extra's like Christmas. Jared is my final ball and the most important ball of all, with all the other balls I can put them off but not this one. I will miss bed time and bath time and he will be fast asleep when I get home so the day time is important to me I have from when he wakes up until 2:30 to play, sing and explore with my boy. I'm hoping in a few weeks everything will fall into place.

I would love to read your comments on your life commitments and you manage.

25 things before I'm 25!!

I recently read 22 before 22 by the lovely Alyssia and it got me thinking. In one year and 5 months I will be 25. I haven't even started ticking of things on my list, apart from the start a family checkbox. I know I'm still young and have plenty of time left but I said that at 18 and 21 so now is the time to start doing. So here is my list. 

1. Write a novel  
I love writing and I really want to write a good novel who knows it may get published.......one day. 

2.Sky Dive  
I hate flying and not a fan of heights yet I feel the need to do this hopefully I can and I may even raise some money for charity while plunging towards the ground.

3.Fill a sketch book with my drawings
I used to draw all the time mostly Anime as I think it is a beautiful way to draw.

4.Go to America
If I haven't been by the time I'm 25 then I don't think I will ever get to go :(

5.Lose weight
This needs to be sooner then later I was a lovely size 8 before having my son then in the space of a month and the pill followed by the implant I went up to a 14/16 it is slowly going but I will get back in my size 8 jeans.

6.Move house
Our house is just that a house, I want us to have something that we love and want to put effort in when it comes to decorating. 

7.Buy a car
I sold my car so we could get a house to live in and pay of some debt before Jared-David was born and I would love to have a car again. 

8.Be near the end of my Degree
I work so hard on my assignments I juggle them through housework and my son and now a job, I just hope I get that Degree. 

9.Join a Gym or Sports group
I would settle for something like martial arts I would love to get back into running but I think them days are gone. 

10.Go to concerts
When  I was younger I never got to go and see people as it was too expensive but now I can (if I save) and I want to see at least 5.

11.Bake
OK sounds a little boring but I want to make cakes and biscuits that are so pretty no one wants to eat them. I can do it and I'm very good at it just not enough time. 

12.Get another dog
I love my Rosie roo bear so much and I want her to have a friend. 

13.Eat more foods
Of course I mean foods that I have never really tried not just more in quantity as that would ruin number 5.

14.Make a quilt
This is something I have always wanted to do but I'm useless when it comes to sewing etc but I will just try harder. 

15.Travel
Now America would be nice but I would like to go back to Germany and drive it not just get on a plane.

16.Watch box sets
I'm more of a box set girl then a film girl so I want to watch more box sets 

17.Write and illustrate a childs book 
I would be happy if to do this just for my own son but would be nice to get it published. 

18.Visit family more
Kind of hard atm without a car but I want to see my family down south more.

19.Get my blog self hosted 
I plan for this to happen after my birthday in April.

20.Own more shoes
I really don't think I have enough shoes. 

21.Go out on date's with the boyfriend
Lately we don't go out as much and I miss going for dinner with him. 

22.Go on more day trips
As a family we go out when we can but I want to take Jared to see loads of things like caves and fun museums.

23.Learn how to be more artistic with my nails
I like pretty nails but I'm shockingly bad at painting them. 

24.Learn a language
In school I hated french but I would like to learn a language that would benefit me German, Polish or even Chinese. 

25.Plan my life
What can I say I like to plan things I hope to be in talks about baby number 2 when I'm 25 but time will tell. 

If you have a list I would love to have a read just leave me a comment with a link :) xx
