Awful lot of running

So last weekend I had a super time. Went to Milton Keynes with friends for Collectormania. Far too much fun was had. I honestly haven't laughed so much in ages. Saw many old friends, and made lots of new ones too! Being recognised off twitter was quite fun too.
I met Jenna Louise Coleman, who was super lovely! And super-mega-tiny! I really didn't know she was that small. So cute.
Also went to see Star Trek again on the Saturday night. Obsessed with when Spock is running around. Sigh. Love Quinto so much.
Then on Sunday I met Billie Piper again, and she was lovely. She really hugged me in my photo shoot which was awesome. A guy a few people in front of me even got her to kiss him on the cheek. She was just so cute. Also met Bernard Cribbins. His photo shoot was so funny. He was saying 'hellooooooooooooo' in my ear, I couldn't stop can totally tell in the photo.
Just having a weekend away from everything was just brilliant. Had a few ups and downs over the weekend, but overall it was super! Just looking forward to my next holiday, which is Glastonbury. This time in 4 weeks I will be in the middle of a giant field. Crazy.

Currently enjoying my week off work by staying up super late, looking at old photos, watching the office (English one), sorting out my room, visiting London, buying lots of cards/postcards, and just chilling out.
It's been really nice. Forgetting about work for a little bit and just enjoying life. So looking forward to the end of the week, as I am going away. It's convention time! Can't wait to see my friends, and just hang out and stuff. Just really looking forward to escaping for a few days. Just worried about seeing someone I probably really don't want to see, but deep down I do...ugh, I don't know. Just need to see how it all goes.
Anyway, it's 1:30ish...probably should get some sleep. Got lots of packing/washing to do as I leave on Friday. So far I have socks, my Polaroid camera, and a mini Thor figure friend informed me that's all I need...however part of me thinks he was lying.

5 years

So, I have just realised I have been blogging for over 5 years. 5 years!?! That's kinda crazy. I remember starting out, and really having no clue what I was doing. It's all down to my friend Charlotte. I owe her so much for convincing me to start a blog. So many wonderful things have happened to me because of this blog.
I remember always wanting pen pals, and through blogger I got pen pals. These pen pals and readers became my friends. Friends who I love and hold dear to me.
Last year was perfect. I met Lina for the first time when she came to stay with me, which was so perfect. Then in the summer I went to America to stay with her, and then to Seattle to meet 6 other bloggers. I had the most amazing and life changing time. Just being in another county with 7 technically 'strangers' and enjoying every moment. Feeling at home, feeling myself, and feeling happy. Sometimes when I think about it all, it makes me feel so grateful and happy. And to all the other people I have met through blogger, all my other friends, who I really hope to meet one day. I cannot wait to get on that plane in July and get back to America, and to see everybody's beautiful faces again.
Even though I do feel I have lost my way with blogging, I am so in love with everything to do with it. Blogging has changed my life.

Sunday, 5 May 2013


It's Sunday, and thanks to two of my best friends I am totally on a craft roll today. Perfect Sunday. Movie watching and creating bits and pieces. The sun is shining too, and that always makes me happy. So glad the weather is getting better.
Other plans today include going to my grandparents house for dinner. Whine will be nice.
Currently in love with watching the Star Trek cast in interviews, making washi tape string banners, Doctor Who being on Saturday nights, fresh flowers being in my room, and the thought of going to CMMK in a few weeks. I need a convention! I miss my buddies too much.

That time

So I had the best birthday. I spent all of it with my awesome friends and wonderful family. Took a couple of trips to London, went to the cutest little town, saw the David Bowie exhibition at the V&A, and just had fun. It was such a sunny birthday. I spent the day in London with my friends. Took us a while to all find each other...Kings Cross/St Pancras is the worst station to find each other. Anyway, after a while we all found each other and went to Drink Shop Do. Lemonade and cake on your birthday is always fun.
I don't normally like my birthday, I always love other people's. However I did have a great year this year. I am now's so weird. Can't really believe it. CRAZYYYYY.
Also went to Pick me up London. Which was a super art festival. So many talented artists were on show. Also got recognised from Instagram...which was weird and awesome all at the same time.
Other than that, I have just been working lots and saving all the money I can for Austin. Which is getting nearer and nearer.
Also the other thing that is taking up space in my head is the fact Star Trek Into Darkness comes out on Thursday. On Benedict, you are perfect. And Quinto. Sigh. Can't wait.
