So, last weekend my family and I went up to Birmingham. It was our first time visiting our family friends and it’s safe to say, we loved every minute of it.

We were told to dress up.. Of course, it was a Halloween party! I decided to go as a skeleton. I painted half of my face and left the other half, let’s say “normal”!!! I brought a skeleton dress on Boohoo.com the previous year and wanted to wear it again.

 

This was the look I went for, with the help of my mum’s creative face painting skills!!

Unfortunately, I did purchase some white contact lenses but as usual, I was running “fashionably” late and couldn’t put them in quick enough, (I didn’t want to miss out on the food you see!)

On Sunday, our friends took us to the town in Lichfield. It was lovely, we didn’t manage to get round the whole town, but we did visit a lovely sweet shop!

The only downside of the weekend was the fact it took us 4 and a half hours to get home!! As my dad said, we could have flown to Spain and back in that time!!

Hopefully we can go back to Birmingham again very soon!!!

So much to do, so little time..

I am so sorry I haven’t posted in a while and that I haven’t been posting as much as I should, but having a full time job, constantly feeling tired and trying to post as often as I can, has proven to be difficult!  But, on the plus side.. I love my job!

3 weeks ago, I started my new job in the city. Those of you that know me personally and where I live, know this takes me a good hour and a half, twice a day to commute. I cannot begin to explain how tired I feel every night.  I am even in bed by half 8 sometimes!! But.. I have had so much fun already and I love getting dressed up every day!!

Finding outfits hasn’t been as tricky as I thought it would be. My mum helped me to raid my wardrobe and put all different outfits together.  I honestly couldn’t believe how many smart outfits I actually had.  Unfortunately, this means I don’t need to do much shopping, but of course.. I will find an excuse – I normally do!!!  Anyway, I promise I will share some of my outfits with you all soon!

Happy Halloween!!!

Lots of Love xxx

On 22nd September 2014, we had to say our goodbyes to our handsome boy.  It’s been a very hard and emotional time the past few days but I wanted to write a little tribute to him as he meant so much to all of us.  He had an impact on many peoples lives, some at first were scared but they soon realised what a little softie he really was.  A strong dog, who would never show any fear.  Our guard and our protector.  He used to wait up for me to come home, whether it was 11pm or 2am, as soon as I would come in, he would come to see me.. follow me up the stairs, then sit and wait outside my door until my lights went out.  I would hear him go up the stairs to my mum and dad’s room, thats when my parents knew I was home safe and sound.  He would sit in the kitchen whilst mum made dinner every night and when we were loading the dishwasher he would always be there trying to lick the plates and the cutlery before they were cleaned.  I will always remember when we went to pick a dog, we walked in and one puppy really stood out for me.  He followed me everywhere I went and just wanted to be next to me.  That’s why we chose him.  That’s when we knew he was the perfect dog for us.  He protected me from that day and as my younger sisters grew older, he done the same for them.  He is an unforgettable dog and used to do the funniest of things.

Life isn’t the same same without him, 

He has left a massive hole in our hearts.  

Although we will never forget him, 

everyday is still so hard.  

We know he wouldn’t want us to be upset,

but we had to put him first.  

We never wanted to watch him suffer,

because he was just the best. 

I feel like I have lost a brother, a guard and my best friend.  He was the best dog we could of asked for.  I am still finding things so hard, we all are.  But we never wanted to watch him suffer, he didn’t deserve that.  He was such a good dog, so we could never put him through it.   He was with us for 13 years and had the best life he could have possibly had.  But I still miss him like mad.  I can’t help but think about him every hour, of every day.  I understand why we had to do what we done.  But obviously, I wish we could go back and change things.  But that’s life, one day we will be reunited for sure.  Until then, I know he is still with me and my family,  I know it.

I love you Buster boy, forever and always.
