I had nearly forgotten how much I love ….

Horror Films 

You can keep Saw and Human Centipede type films they do nothing for me but a good horror involving ghosts, spirits and the ones that keep you feeling ‘watched’  after the film is finished or a ‘based on true events’ that’s my bag.   Whilst at work we were discussing ‘things that go bump in the night’ and other spooky going on and I realised that actually I hadn’t watch a horror for ages. The last thing I had watched was ‘The Enfield Haunting’ which was good. I came home and scoured Netflix for something I hadn’t seen and came across Mama. I thought this was worth a watch but they all have slightly disappointing endings or maybe my mind is far to macabre for my own good! 

Garden peas

Not frozen but fresh from the garden straight out of their pods. How I am wishing I had planted more this year!

Drinking with the girls

It’s been a while but after a weekend away I feel like I am mourning the loss of their company this week 

Driving my car 

These days I commute to work via the train and a bus so my poor little Mito is usually sat home alone. 

Though this week I have driven into work twice. I think it’s the sitting in traffic that annoys me.  However, when you get that stretch of open road that allows you to knock it down a gear and press on the accelerator, hear that roar of the engine that is just the best.  What can I say, maybe I should have been a rally driver but I do miss that just pootling around the town at weekends just doesn’t do it for me! 

Girls holidays the myths and the reality – all giggled out gaggle!

I wonder what goes on on a boys holiday! On our sleazyjet flight to Palma were a bunch of lads aged from 21 to 50 all giving it the usual banter about getting drunk and seeing how many people they can sleep with. Does this really happen or is it all just bravado?

Apparently this is also what blokes/men/boys think happens on a girls weekend. Obviously I go on the wrong type of girls weekends!

Our girls weekends are about the girls, we take the piss and generally just want to spend time together catching up, talking crap, laughing so much we nearly wee, eating as much as we possibly can (as we have probably been on a diet for at least three or four months before)  drinking and occasionally #stagehogging!. Aloma that ones for you #ProudMary.

   Yes, we do go out and yes we do drink until the sun comes up. We will chat to lads but to be fair it’s only always banter and a flirt. We all like a bit of attention and a bit of a giggle but  hand on heart it’s always just about being with the girls. Maybe we are the only ones but I think we take our lead from Patsy and Eddie.

At the end of the day we are Just a gaggle of girls having a giggle!

Crochet is flooding the shops so why not learn to crochet!

I have been looking for a little hobby for a while something that’s not messy or takes up too much room photography was one thought but equipment could be costly and crocheting was the other. Though I thought at least crocheting was something I can do anywhere and anytime!

I looked at going to classes but with working full time and two Tweens plus a husband on stupid shift rotas it makes it difficult to find a course. I therefore turned to YouTube. 

I am sure you can teach yourself anything from YouTube! 

Anyway, popped to my favourite  hobbycraft shop and purchased a hook or two and then found some cheap wool/yarn from b&m and set sail on my adventure. 

So with the help of YouTube sites I watched and copied and before long I could magic up items.  Fairly quickly. 

I then took the leap and purchased an actual pattern to make this little number

created with mostly  treble criochet  clusters     

I am sure crocheting is quicker than knitting, though I am going to find out my needles and see.  
Here are a few other items I have created in the past few weeks.
