WIP Sunday LOL – oops

Image result for positive quotes

Super late  WIP post but who makes the rules anyway? I’ve been majorly off schedule this week, as i mentioned previously i have a massive baby order. So i wanted to plan and count my yarn stash and work out what i need and make lists because why not? – I also went out Friday and had some drinks, surprisingly i wasn’t drunk even though i had about 7 bottles of cider. I don’t smoke anymore so going outside didn’t really happen, and my throat didn’t feel like crap the next day. I’m super glad i am not a smoker – I thought i would be really drunk because i don’t drink often. But i wasn’t in the mood and at about 11PM and my head was banging. I met up with my nan, who is my dads mum. I always get nervous meeting her as i never like to bring up the subject of my dad but she talks about him and i can’t stop that. We actually had a nice time, and my head the next day was fine. I felt tired as you do, but i did go bed late and had no sleep thanks to the cat!

I keep meaning to film my Kindle sleeve video, but round about Thursday i started to feel depressed and so i am concentrating on other things that will pull me of out of the deep end. IDK it might take me a week or so to get out of it, but i had a dream about a tornado and i knew that my mood was about to take a turn. Writing lots as well but today i am going to chill with my PS4 and become an Assassin for the day!

I did however finish Downton Abbey which i am sad about, but i have started a Ripple Blanket for the baby order. I got all my yarn this time from LoveCrochet.com and i got Paintbox Aran – Abit miffed that i am missing two balls from my order, so i can’t continue it now as i am almost out of the white so i will have to wait until it’s resolved.

I also went on a bit of a book haul, Thursday was it or Wednesday? Can’t remember. Soup book is for my diet and the fairy book is specifically for my novel research, yup i won’t curse myself my telling you what i am writing incase my mind says nah its crap. The two Phillipa Gregory books are from the RSPCA charity shop, they have opened a RSPCA book store which is AMAZING – They had too many books and thought it would make sense to open a book shop. I mean two quid for these books that are brand new? Instead of 8? Plus i love the author, not as much as C.J Sansom though when it comes to historical fiction.

I also started a baby cardigan, mum gave me some pink yarn and i ask for some more mushroom (stylecraft dk) as it’s really subtle. The order i am doing can you tell its for a girl? She wants pink girly shades. Which i don’t mind – It doesn’t look much like a cardigan yet but i have the other panel to do, two sleeves and then the collar then button holes. It’s actually a paid pattern by King cole – which i bought from a shop as it’s one of those booklet types and the pattern number is 3476 🙂

That’s all for today! I will be mooching around later catching up, i can’t even cope with looking at my emails – i tend to delete unwanted stuff everyday but i haven’t bothered in WEEKS so i need to spend some time organising my emails. I have three email accounts, i only had two but the first one which i’ve had for ages just gets clogged with crap and so i use it for anything i have accounts with – Second one is gmail which is now my main one but i also made a third for my blog. IDK why LOL

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! xo

Sunday Chit chat | I did it, i wrote my first chapter.

You know how i mentioned about writing a book a million times? Then i mentioned that ‘this idea was the one’ Then i said it again and again, then i had the ‘Give me back my flowers’ Was going to be the ONE! – K that is still will be something, eventually – One that i am in no rush to finish. So i technically aren’t lying, because i  did say it might not turn out to be anything – It’s more likely going to be an entry into a short story competition.

OKAY OKAY GET TO THE POINT.  – Firstly you need to enter my give-away all you have to do is tell me why you started blogging. It’s open until the 26th of Jan but i am more than likely going to let it run until the 31st. ‘Cause i am hopeless at scheduling.

RIGHT – so i took some advice, and i started to brainstorm ideas for stories and then i thought of one. Then the next advice was to outline – WHAT IS THIS?! I’ve never in my life outlined anything, if i feel an itch to write i do. Hence the random short stories on here, i don’t pre-write them and then blog it. I literally open up a new post and tap away. BOOM. The anxious feeling of writing started to hit me, what if my idea was stupid, what if nobody likes it. So i kinda did one of those brain storms of what i wanted my ‘story’ idea to be. Then i did a second one with more detail, then i wrote with a pencil til my hands ached, paragraphs of a mini structure. The beginning, middle and end, then i re-wrote that so it had more detail, then i well i realised my book idea wasn’t going to be just one book. It’s going to be a series…

And that my friends, i finally FINALLY FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART. Found my story.

So i just finished chapter one, of well what will be eventually draft one. And when you put it like that, it feels like my book will never be done. If only i hadn’t put off writing for such a long time? Hmmm, no time to blame myself – Things happen for a reason, this idea has taken this long for a reason. The time is now.

With that, i wish you all a happy Sunday, as i am off to bed! Good night xo

I hate you Sunday! | Diary 24.01.18

 

WELL – My weekend has been gross. It’s put me behind lots, and then now i start worrying about Monday because i so much to do.

Okay, so today my new fridge freezer came today because my other one had it’s day. It was second hand anyways, so i knew i wouldn’t a full life span out of it. So obviously i had to spend money i don’t really have!
Then i went to bake last night, i did it. Until i dropped all my cake on the floor and then the frosting went wrong. By this point, i had spent nearly 4 hours trying to do a Devils food cake and i just wanted to cry in a hot bath.
So that means i am behind on my baking post. Which will have to be Monday, as i need to get more ingredients! This time though, i am going for something much more simpler and my skill level – Which means i will be using the ingredient Ginger 😀

Lastly, i wanted to film and write up instructions on my Kindle sleeve, but looks like i will have to get my studio lighting out and film tonight but edit and upload Tuesday.
I also finished a book last night, which left me feeling pissed off because it sucked. So my review will be up at the end of January as i am currently reading two more books and so i can do a multiple review.

I’ve done ZERO writing, well i have done some all in my head though – Planning and changing things. Whatever i ate last night left me feeling horribly sick, i have not had much sleep as my fridge came SO early with the courier. I slept most of the afternoon, i am hungry and had to throw lots of food out – Got a lobby in the slow cooker though so i am looking forward to that.
Tomorrow i need to go the council and sort out bills, but i might push it for Tuesday. Haven’t seen my mum in weeks, hoping to see her Wednesday. I feel like i have just had the weirdest week ever?

I am going to chill out, play some Sims and crochet. Watch The Office because it’s one of my fav’s.
I hope everyone has had a great weekend and catch up with you all soon!
