Pets 'n' Stuff | Slime Trails & Adorable Snails

"Snails see the benefits. The beauty in every inch"
The Format

Welcome to another late post! I was supposed to post an Arts 'n' Crafts post yesterday but I had an exam in the morning and then I was just too shattered. I had a nap but then last night I had to go shopping with Eva to get a dress for a Gala Ball she's going to. Earlier in the week I was too busy putting off revising and then on Wednesday I actually got some revising done. So needless to say I didn't get any crafting done. I'm hoping I'll get everything back on schedule once I finish my exam on Tuesday as I've been so shattered with anxiety lately I've not felt able to keep up with blogging. So hopefully I'll have more energy and motivation after next week.

My Recurring Dreams

"A dream isn't always a wish your heart makes."

Howdy and welcome to today's blog post! Today's post is about my recurring dreams. I have five dreams that recur pretty often. Well I mean, they're not the exact same dream every time but the theme is the same. Most of the time there is an element of worry or stress in them too. Figures I couldn't have recurring happy dreams! Anyway, I thought I would share a little about these dreams with you. Maybe someone can have a go at telling me what they might mean.

My Week In Words | #21 2015

"I'm not materialistic. I believe in presents from the heart, like a drawing that a child does."
Victoria Beckham

Welcome to this week's instalment of My Week In Words! It wasn't a very eventful week but it was good nonetheless. I got some beautiful presents and also treated myself. Also a whole lot of Sims was played! This post covers from Sunday 17th to Saturday 23rd of May. I hope you enjoy!

Introduction To Evara Ploo

Today I decided not to post a review and instead I thought I would introduce you to a new person in my life, Evara Ploo. No, I didn't get a new pet. If you read My Week In Words recently you'll know I installed Sims 3 a week or two ago. I first made Beau Regard, then I made Vincent Keller and now they're married and have a little girl called Rue.

Anyway! I was having fun with my little family but then family life started to get a little hum drum. Taking care of the kid, going to work, paying bills etc. Then I watched Dan and Phil play Sims 4 and it gave me an idea. Like they made Dil Howlter and play with him together for their videos, it might be fun if Eva and I made a Sim to play with together. And thus Evara Ploo was born. If you don't get the name, it's a combination of Eva Paige and Sara Bloo. GET IT?!

Relationships: Things I've Learned

"I want passion. Even if it's harder and hurts more."

Today I thought I would share some things I've learned from my past relationships. As I said in my My Bae Requirements post, our past relationships mould how we view relationships and potential mates. It's only by trial and error we learn to navigate these (relation)ships. It's important we learn from our mistakes and the mistakes of others and put every lesson into practice next time around. Nobody's learning curve is ever going to be the same and no relationship is ever going to be perfect but we can always strive to be as close to it as possible. So this is a little bit of a more serious follow up to My Bae Requirements. Things I have learned and that I hope will help me find the right person and right relationship next time I happen to fall for someone.

Arts 'n' Crafts | Spiral Earrings

"Jewelry takes people's minds off your wrinkles."
Sonja Henie

Welcome to this week's edition of my Arts 'n' Crafts series. Another from Simple Crafts: A Guide From Beginners courtesy of Sykes Cottages. Today I'm trying their spiral earrings tutorial. Now, I did a jewellery making class a few years ago so I thought this would be a piece of cake for me, but to be honest it didn't go so well. Once again Syke's Cottages sent me the things I needed.

My Obsessions #3

"You cannot intellectualize yourself out of obsession. You cannot cure yourself of it."
Nicolas Roeg

Welcome my this week's Miscellaneous Tuesday post... which just so happens to be being posted on a Wednesday. I've been having pretty bad headaches a lot lately and I've just been completely shattered. Still, I didn't want to completely sack off Tuesday's post so here it is, a day late. Today's blog is another My Obsessions post and this week I'm introducing you to my Wyrm and Wyrven collection!

Short Stories | Love On The Rocks

"Life is messy. Love is imperfect. People are flawed."

This week I received this lovely comment, 'I love this post. You're style of writing just makes me want to read more, have you ever considered writing a short story?' from the lovely Amy Hall of Smooth Amy on my review of Love, Rosie. It was such a lovely comment and it got me to thinking I haven't really talked much about fiction writing. I love writing fiction and have a few stories in the works, but truth be told it's something I find myself procrastinating more with because I'm more of a tougher critic of myself when it comes to my fiction than my blog writing. Rightly or wrongly so. That being said, this comment encouraged me to perhaps incorporate my fiction into my blog. Use it as a way to practice and also get feedback. This first piece I've decided to share is actually a short story I wrote for my GCSE English creative writing controlled assessment. There were a couple of different prompts we could use, but the one I went with was 'write a love story or a love/hate story.' I'll let you read it and then explain a little bit about where I got my inspiration.

The Giant Cruise

"Old and young, we are all on our last cruise."
Robert Louis Stevenson

Okay, so this was ages ago now but better late than never, right? That is well and truly becoming something I say far too often. I'll probably end up having it on my headstone. Anyway! Way back in April, on the 18th, the Belfast Giants had a mini cruise. By mini cruise I mean leaving from Belfast to Cairnryan, sitting in port for about an hour and a half before sailing back to Belfast. Staying on the boat the whole time. It's a cruise I had done a few times in the past as part of the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign's Christmas party. But this time I was older. And by older I mean legally allowed to consume alcohol. All round it seemed like a fun event so naturally I signed Eva and I up! It was £19 each to go. I was slightly nervous because in my teenage years I developed sea sickness. I had managed a few sailings without any sickness in my twenties, so I hoped I was over it.

My aunt Karen had agreed to leave Eva and I to the port as my dad was working. I felt bad she wasn't coming with us because she's a hockey fan too, but I thought she might be uncomfortable with the alcohol etc. As it was, she had an appointment for her dog to get groomed anyway. Luckily she was able to get us to port before and be back in time for the appointment. We arrived on time to go straight to boarding, despite getting lost and almost being run off the road twice.

My Week In Words | #18 2015

"Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever."
Mahatma Gandhi

Howdy and welcome to this week's instalment of My Week In Words! This week we said goodbye to April and hello to May. I can't be the only one thinking these months seem to be going by faster and faster. I had another good week, even if I spent a little more money than I should have. I hope May will be the month I start looking after my bank account a little more. But then I say that every month! Anyway, this week's post covers from the Sunday 26th of April to Saturday 2nd of May. Enjoy!
