Boxing day adventures!

haha, so on christmas day, we went to the beach...and some joker has put a christmas tree up on the we decided, obviously it needed to be decorated!

so we picked out the most ridiculous decs from my tree(S) and off we went to the beach!

was freezing, and theres me and shiz running across the beach in tights and tshirts (love the way we wore wetsuits in summer!) with pink sparkly things in tow and everyone looking at us like nutters. Unfortuately the tide was in. so we had to wade out to the rocks, and then shiz climbed up to make the tree look pretty, while people on beach all staring in amazement at two nutters climbing up rocks with tide coming in!

tree looked fab, good job done!

who puts a tree on the beach anyway?!was obviously our duty to decorate!


Friday, 25 December 2009


Well. this part of the day is feeling a little strange, but this morning was fun!went to the beach with helen and kim, and we had a right laugh going for a paddle, soaking eachother and playong with pip the dog!

And they are coming over later for christmas fun, involving wine and dvd's :)

Lol my friends know me very well, judging from my awsome presents!

My own personal forest...!!

haha i gave in and decided i did really want a christmas tree yesterday, so i could do 'christmas on my terms', as shiz puts it.

I bet she really regretted that when i made her go everywhere to help me find a pink xmas tree! lesson learnt...there is absolutely NO POINT in looking for christmas decs a week before christmas...

But what i have now is even better:) I have a christmas tree forest! Cos i have my white 'halloween tree', that got put up in october-dont go there-and a teeny tiny blue tree with MASSIVE baubles on it, jokes, its about half a foot high! Then we have the amazing BLACK tree that shiz found in sainsburys, covered in the pic and silver decs we hunted out from charity shops. Lol we were planning on getting a big tree, so we had lots of tree decs, so we decided we should hijack my friends little pink tree had bought for her room at halls, which is a glorious mish mash of colour! And bows.there are lots of bows everywhere:)

I love my forest...
they may be small, but all perfectly formed! (unless clashing colours arnt your thing!)

UCAS - yehaaaa!baby i sent it!

Yeh baby yeh!

So i've ended up applying for-drumroll dedededeeeerrrrr

UWE Bristol
St Georges
Kings college

and not plymouth.not sure entirely how i feel about this at the moment. Cos plymouth is a dump, and would hate it, and hate the course they do their, all PBL, but would be near my homies...:(((((



I cannot possibly express how much i hate this organisation. I long for the days when you used to fill in the form with a flippin pen. I must be old. And what exactly do they do with the £17 they are demanding from me. Bit excessive for photocopying, no?

And yet here I am filling in what must be at least my 5th UCAS form! they are earning a nice little living from me. At least im doing the course that i want this time, but which uni?arg.

at the mo is narrowed down to-
First choice-UWE, because its near and my best friend is living there.

Plymouth-dont like AT ALL, but near, and wouldnt need to move.But admin tutor hates me.

St Georges-because i could move make to where i came from!and i like the idea of a smaller college attatched to a hosp. And would be dead proud if i got in.

Kings college- see above. and how kick ass!and my mum would be pissed!(yes i know thats not a good reason to pick a uni, its more of a bonus point!)

Then the mayb's to fill up the form-
Brunnel- Cos i like uxbridge. And tommi there.and lots of riding.

Brighton-cos they take anyone

UEL-cos it would be jokes to live in east london(and cheap, hello whitechapel!)

Keele-supposedly posh, low entry requirement, no interview policy.natch.who wouldnt apply!

Liverpool-because would get a whole lot of satisfaction from getting a place, and take great pleasure in turning it down!(ok, not going to apply here, but would be funny. And at somepoint i do need to go back there, if only to get my stuff from halls-from like 2004!)

Manchester met-good for shopping is manchester.also fairly likely to get shot/mugged/stabbed.something to think about.

please leave suggestions.please, go on.i have to send this off like now!!


Monday, 14 December 2009


I just cooked the most fab veggie roast, containing, erm, a lot of vegetables! was getting quite angry with the parsnips in the end, but they behaved eventually:)was fun, had a giggle cooking for my friend and I(doesnt often happen!), and was well needed after this afternoon. Ha cannot 'pop' into town for a few bits with shiz without it taking at least 3 hours, i really dont know how we do it!me thinks truro fabrics is quite distracting:)
hmn would quite like to hibernate now!

The godess of binbags and other such things!

I owe a lot to the goddess of binbags! I was carrying my washing back from my friends car( lol my own personal laundry service!), 2 massive binbags full, and they started to split as soon as lifted from car. The goddess of binbags was obviously listening as i uttered a little prayer...

'please oh goddess of binbags, dont let my bags split, please dont let the whole of truro see my knickers fall into the road, and my pretty dresses get squished by a car. Please, and i swear i will never overload you from now on, and i will never ever ever put anything recyclable into you by accident again, but please dont let my bags break'!!!

Just made it to my front door.

However, I appear to have fully offended the goddess of front doors at some home last night, was so hungry i cant even begin to explain, put my key in the lock, turned it...nothing. Stupid lock had jammed. Que very angry landlord having to book locksmith to come out on sunday morning(today). So i had to stay with my friend last night, got back this morning to meet lanlord, and the stupid door opened by fluke! apparantly the lock is a bit weird, so all replaced, for like the second time in a month.GGGRRR and im not even a door slammer!hmn, maybe its the posters i used to have on my doors thats causing offence...

Today i was fully dressed like a student.Let me explain.For years, i went out of my way to not dress like a student, and basically just live ny the principal of 'pretty clothes were made to be worn at all times'. Now, i fully admit that this approach is a little hit and miss at times, as in, yes sonetimes i do look a little...erm interesting, but hey, whatever floats your boat. So today i swapped clothes with my friend, just for a giggle, before we went on a potentialy stressful little outing, reasoning that pretty dress will reduce her stress levels. And i ended up in student staples-hoodie, denim skirt, and my cutie ballet shoes-couldnt leave them out! was very odd experience indeed!

Top ten reasons for how i'm messing my life up so spectaculy ! :(

1.Read my other blog

2.I got with a skank boy again, thought i would have learnt after my ex.Guess not!

3.Am a crap friend, cos dont know wether im coming or going.

4.i think im probably an alkie.

5.I feel a complete mess, read my other blog some more. Ditto door scenario.

6.My family dont want anything to do with me, fairplay, i dont want to know then either, but i am so lonely, like all the time.But on the other hand, it get all stresses out with anyone other than my bestest friends.

7.I'm messing college up, cos i cant go in. This is a combination of being piss poor, and feeling lower than low.and i dont just mean 'bit fed up'.

8.STILL dont know what to do with my life, and if i dont get my UCAS done pronto il be even more screwed. But i really dont know what to do, i just know i need to do something.

9.why cant i find a boy who isnt a complete arse, just for once?

10.Im 25.and im about as rich as a bolivian peasant.this depresses me.a lot. And yes, i except my doc is right i do need a break, but seriously, how is anyone supposed to live on like a fiver a week, plus buy proper food to recover from ED?!

Ok i thought of more than 10...

11. Am going to lose my beautiful flat, because stupid bollocking housing benefit rate has changed.IM NOT SKANKING OFF THE STATE-i have paid my tax long enough to be claimimg some back while im ill, but why have they just slashed all the rates IN HALF!! Getting my house was the most amazing thing, and now im going to fucking lose it.

12. I'm just a bit crap really

13. I spend half my life at the doctors, or on the phone to freaking out of hours service.sweet.

14.Read my other blog again

think that about sums it up.

Boys that dont play nicely 2

Forget John Tucker, JIM ROBSON MUST DIE!!!


If your in any doubt as to how amazingly angry i am, last night i listened to the following song for a few HOURS, adding about a hunderd views to its youtube rating. And my version of angry boy music normally means a big dose 'Charmer' by kings of leon, or praps a bit of incubus. Just for comparison.

I freaking hate you, by godsmack,

and ALL of the lyrics were relevant. And i dont do angry music. Worst i get is the pretendet by the foo's.

Marmite, Rose' and boys that dont play nicely...

So, yesterday I found out that there in fact are guys who think its fun to work their way through an entire friendship group...and think that we all to stupid to talk to eachother! Said individual also isnt very imaginative, and really needs to learn some new this ok anyone?! Also. little tip, if your going to mess about...well at least make sure you dont get peoples names muddled up, its a bit of a giveaway.
Hey ho, what goes around will come around, and at least it was pretty fun working out how to completely screw him over, and the Rose' definatly helped things along nicely, hic, ahem, i mean haha.

Moral being, that all boys clearly think with the thing in their pants, as opposed to the thing in their heads (if its there at all). Knobhead.

Oh well, last night was jokes anyway, clearly much wine was drunk, and an awful lot of moopy music was played. Bizarly i was suddenly striken with the small of beef, was so overwhelmong, couldnt work out where the hell it waas coming from, smelt EVERYTHING, and i mean everything, my friend as afraid i was going to make her have a fully clothed shower at one point, until we both noticed the open jar of marmite on the windowsill...had forgotten she has a bit of a thing for dipping carrots in marmite (dont even go there!), and had in fact been smelling essence of marmite for hours...ok you prob had to me there, but was knicker wetting funny, was like a demented sniffer dog trying to figure out where this smell was coming from!

lessons learnt
.Boys suck
.lid should always be put back on marmite
.I def have a limit to how much Rose' should be consumed
.clearly, becoming a nun is becoming a viable option.
.NEVER trust anyone who says 'I hate putting you in this position'. yes your right, it does in fact mean that he is a giant arse, and clearly enjoying the situation very much.

my life be like!!(sorry i stole the phrase, you know who you are!)

but really, my life be like!
You can always trust your family to confuse you that teeny bit more when your already as lost as a goth in jd sports...
I thought I had it all clear in my head until they interfered, guess thats what they are for lol:)
oooh my dizzler player is really giving it some tonight, loving it!! Am particulary liking the foo's song 'the pretender' right now, seems quite apt somehow!
I am supposed to be writing an assignment on the wonders of cellular transportation, but I might do something drastic if i have to write the word 'osmosis' one more time. Instead, i chose to play on the internet, listen to angry rah songs and formulate a plan for world domination...just kidding!I'm acyually doing some sewing therapy, am making something cute to send someone who will never quite know how much they helped me this year...:)

But really my life be like!!
ooh far as what i wish i was wearing right now...there is a GORGEOUS tshirt in topshop that i want sooo covered in bows!I neeeeeeed it!!!:)

Wednesday, 2 December 2009

ooh its december!

actually, i only realised because my rent gets paid on the second of the month! I do think you either have to be a little'un, or have small people yourself to fully appreciate this time of year though, its all so magic and exciting when your little, and it just wears off and turns into STRESS when you get older lol
and dont even get me started on christmas songs!!!

Last nights fun and games!

Little bit of advice...If your going to fall asleep, best not when the police are knocking at your door to check if your ok after you've spoken to docs!Ended up with them kicking my door in, and i totally slept through it!

very big bill from locksmith-very stressed Vicki!

Christmas lights!

lol, ok so im guessing you all read my erm...'opinions on christmas' from last month. Apparantly, my plan to 'politely' ignore christmas, is being umm 'politely' ignored by my friends.
went to see the xmas lights being turned on in town today, why cant i escape these festivities!Actually, was quite fun, my friend gets soo excited about christmas...i wish i still did. Just makes me sad now. But sometimes, i do kinda enjoy the build up, but the last few have been craptastic.
hey ho.
or more like ho ho ho


Tuesday, 17 November 2009

I'm the most boring person i know!

seriously...heres what i did today. Got up, went docs, came home, got pounced on by my neighbour (dear old man, v old, and v lonely) and i love talking to him normally, but he always gets me when i have beaucoup things to do! Wanted me to cook for him, he fancied bacon and eggs...errr i dont even cook for myself!Bless.

Anyways, so i got home, and have been doing uni work since 10am and its now 10pm. ooh i forgot the most exciting part of my day...had to go tescos and buy toilet

I am fed up!need exciting things to happen please (but preferably low energy requiring exciting things!)or maybe someone could just tell me about their exciting things!

The most bizarre pub in cornwall...

Lol the other night I went to the pub across the road(literally) from my house with a friend. Its always had a rep for being...erm an acquired taste, and a bit of a scuzz hole. But there hasve been lots os figns up about it being under new management, so what the heck, decided to give it a go. JOKES.

Were grand total of 6 people in there-and one og them was the barman. Was the same dingy place as ever, but we went up to the bar for drinks, and the barman was freindly friendly in fact, that i had been offered a job within seconds of walking in there...err NO!
Ha also boosts interesting new approach to drinks...literally all they had available was strongbow, Vodka, or JD-and i mean thats it!looked a me like i was deranged foreigner when i asked for kahlua...they didnt even had any archers!Ha made the mistake of asking for ice, they had to go down to the cellar, and came back with a bowl of ice-lumps so big, didnt fit in glass!
Dont think we didnt have fun...was hilarious...New manager challenged us to pool, was so drunk he got confused when we tried to pay for drinks. Worryingly, he explained how hw had been placed in the pub by the brewery to improve things and pick up trade...hmn.

Also had a whale of a time, as only other people in there were pair of 18 year old chavs, who were obviously having some sort of 'who can grind against a girl in the most offensive way comp' in vetween drinking half points of strongbow, and getting there arses kicked at pool by my mate!

All in all, a pretty normal friday night then!

Thursday, 12 November 2009

Text speak!

I remeber the days when i used to really hate all the abbrieviations that people used to text...especially lol. in fact it took me ages to figure out what it meant-and also,well duh, if your laughing, of curse its out loud?!!
Anyways it used to be a big erk of mine and seriously annoy me...i used to write everything out in full!
and now i find myself acyually SAYING 'lol' in conversation. how did this happen!?!AAARRRGGGG!

its all about knee socks my friend!

I love knee socks! am weairng denim skirt, black leggings and dark grey knee socks over the top, and they have cute ribbon bows on the sides, nd lacy-ness!they make me feel like a dancer lol :)


Monday, 9 November 2009

clothes swapping:)

i love clothes swapping!its fun to rummage through your girlies clothes and try everything on and swap about-endless wardbrobe potential!
ha i was thinking the other day-about half my clothes actually belong to other people, and how me and my friends have developed a sort of library-loaning system for clothes!:)
important fshion items-these range from my blue leopard print leggings, to my bow skirt, or one of my 'vicki special' dresses!these are all short term lol only, with fines accrued for late return(extra borrowing of friends important fashion items!)
Basically-no prolonged stealing of statement and trademark items!!

Medium best-stuff you wear alot, but can cope without..includes useful things like tops, jeans etc etc most peoplesmedium best is made up of things pikied from friends and long forgotton anyway!so longer loans available:p

'eww, thats scabby, you can have that'items-include things like comfort tshirts and hoodies-once loaned, will never reappear again! Beware forgetting they are not actually yours...offering to lend your friend an old tshirt then realising that the said'skanky' item is actually theres..well not always a plan!!
anyway, other peoples comfort clothes are much more appealing than your own!!

one off, unique items-are sacred and generally only lent to try and cheer a miserable friend up:) the promise of a loan of one of these items is greeted with much excitement-as it tends to be something you have lusted after for ages...
recent example of friend 'permemently borrowed' this awsome grey smock dress from a freind...who had pikied it from her friend!its a really simple dress, but is MAGIC as looks good on everyone!had been coverting it for ages, and actually had the pleasure of a week long which time i wore it everyday! my friend recently got it back, and i bet she is now regretting leaving it anywhere near me again!:p



Saturday, 7 November 2009

some luck eh?!i was right, should in fact have just stayed in bed!!

Someone is having the biggest belly laugh at me right glad im entertaining somebody, but seriously, give me a break!
ok, so last night i NEEDED to straighten my hair...straight hair makes me happy, and yes its vain, but i dont care:)i owe many things to whoever envented this electrical genius-however i now have a teeny tiny grudge agianst the manufacturers of my last pair. I got my hair cut the other week to cheer me up, and i LOVE, but it does need straightening, or i will end up looking like a mophead...or someone whos had a shock, which, funnily enough is quite fitting really.
so there i was happily doing my thing, sectioned my hair, started doing it, and the electric cut out, with this funny sizzling noise.
we figured out the fuse had tripped, started again, 5 mins later there was a louder bang and then no elec again.
anyway, because the god of straight hair, obviously understands my immense need, i figured it couldnt possibly be the straightners, must be the took them into kitchen withmy mirror, plugged then in...BABOOM!!literaly exploded, blue sparks, the works!!
totally traumatised-mahussive electric shock, combined with trauma of no straightners, had an absolute hissy!
lol i phoned my best friend to tell her about my adventure...and insteadof saying 'you bloody fool for repeatedly trying to use them', consoled me by saying-'well, yes, id risk my life for straight hair'!mind you, this is the girl who ALWAYS has her GHDs with her, just in case.ALWAYS.:p

lol only way i would calm down was via the immeadiate purchase of some new ones-thank god for 24hr tesco!!lol walked home lovingly craddeling them.

so anyway, there i am today doing the washing up, thinking 'i really really cant put my uni work off any longer', when i broke a glass in the sink, and sliced into my finger!:( big ouch, blood everywhere, had a proper panic, called my friend who took me up hosp, where we spent a happy 3 hours or so laughing at the lenghts i will go to in an attempt to avoid my biochem assignment!

and just to cheer me up a little more, had a nice shower, put a facemask onto chill have very red, very itchy face-v allergic to facepack.



Friday, 6 November 2009

things i would like to do...

go out dancing
drink kahlua
find a pretty boy and get up to some maughty-ness

things i am actually doing
uni work
washing up
cleaning bathroom

oh well:)

Thursday, 5 November 2009

knit one, purl one...

repeat many, many times:p
happy days!


Wednesday, 4 November 2009


ok, so the plan is- a navy and white striped scarf, then i am going to sew some red bows on to it-applique style, so will make patch-like bows from red fabric to sew on!and im thinking might experiment and try amd make mittens this year:)
also i REALLY want to make a sailor girl type dress, have pretty much got the pattern figured out, so will have to wait til i can save up for the fabric now.
then i need to start making everyones christmas presents!!:)
Hmn ive been thinking, what with it getting a fair bit chilly now, i haveny been wearing my usual vic outfits...appear to have adopted a winter uniform of my amazing grey tweed shorts and blue and white striped cardi, with burgandy tights. very cute, lol but feels shockingly grown upby my standards!what i needis to make some warmer winter style tunic type dresses.
trouble is, a while a go now, i had a mad wardbrobe clear out of all the stuff i horded i never wore, felt bad in, or just didnt, and will never fit! a bit of advice...if your going to do this, DON'T do it in summer, and leave yourself with an (albeit amazing and fantastic!) capsule warbrobe of pretty dresses (mostly nautical/bow/bird themed) because however cute it is, your totslly stuffed in winter!
:p having said that, you all know i adore my clothes, and its a bad day indeed if i wear anything other than a 'vicki special'-motto-there is few things i wouldnt wear!


Tuesday, 3 November 2009

ha!i really do write a load of old rubbish:)

i think the title says it all!
today, i have to say, was mostly spent in bed:p i think my glands are about 4 times the size they should be, so i dont hold out much hope for emerging from my duvet anytime soon!yes, i know im being pathetic, but also feel like having a bit of a break from the world right now-a mental health day or two!
i started making some pretty bracelets today, and the silly elastic snapped, so now keep finding little seed beads in my bed, the little blighters.
also managed to draw out a pattern for a dress i want to make, now just have to try and find the right fabric, im quite excited about this one, havnt made a dress for a while now.
also am thinking its time to start knitting me a scarf, might try and be a bit more ambitious this year,but will prob stick to the nautical theme ive had going on for a while now. i made a shocking discovery today...was looking through my clothes, and realised there was hardly anything pink anymore!however did this happen?!?!its not right, must be rectified atearliest possible opportunity, or will be forced to wear fairy costume to compensate!!

back into my nest i go!


i dont feeeel welllll:(

im sulking, cos my throat is so sore cannot bear to swallow/talk/breathe etc etc

im not good at being ill, and especially not when have so much uni work to get done!!

on the plus side, i now have a legitimate reason to skip group tonight!!

tinchy <3

is time i told you all about my love for tinchy(as in strider). He is about 4 inches tall, and is the result of a very drunken night with my prtner in crime dl. Lol it all started off when she declared her love for dappy from ndubzs, and i laughed.a lot. i made a sock monkey for her as a moving away present, and we named him dappy-of course was a striking resemblence, goes without saying:p

so one night, there we were, 2 bottles of wine later(both under £3, so you can imagine what they tasted like) and we had the sudden bright idea to make a sock owl, as you do, when your horrifically pissed. Now i use the term owl as a very loose description, as in actual fact looks a lot more like a penguin:p

incidently-pete, im sure you will never read this, but yes, we did turn your missing black socks in to Tinchy!!

As i recall, we went out shortly after(slightly pontless was about 10 minutes before evrywhere kicked out for the night)and when i got back, literally crawled into bed, and woke up to find tinchy next to my head.
i am now very attatched, in manor of 5 year old with security blanket!

so no laughing at tinchy!!he rocks!

and yes, i do appreciate its slightly random to get drunk and then start sewing, but you had to be there!


Sunday, 1 November 2009

good and proper done in!

im sooo tired. I wouldnt mind if there was an actual reason for this knackered-ness, but alas, i think im just lazy:p
A whole week of no uni, and i have done nothing any work, however have been up to a fair amount of mischief, and been mega stressed with docs appointments/hospital etc

And now i would like a week in bed to make up for this, thanks very much!

too tired to write anything tha will make any actual sense :p

nose update!!

ok, so i know how much you all like reading about my nose piercing escapade...well its looking a bit better today-still as red as hell, but at least the stud didnt either fall out overnight, or the hole didnt close up so much-with the stud in there-that it got stuck!
progress!ha i might do my tragus next:p

got the shock of my life when i woke up this morning...frgot my lovely flat now resembles a grotto, and awoke to fing myself staring at CHRISTMAS!!

happy halloween!


Friday, 30 October 2009

I dont even like christmas...

ok, bah humbug, but seriously, how can you not find the season of goodwill seriously depressing?i mean christmas is fab when ur little, and its exciting-i remember my fav bit was seeing if rudolph 'ate' the carrot i left out...

But now, as soon as it gets to august, christmas starts appearing in the first its this little whisper, as it gets to september, you have more chance of buying a stocking than a pair of school shoes, and eventually you think its totally normal to go to tesco and come back with a tin of quality street, a bag of tangerines and a packet of mince pies...before the end of october!!
I mean, people, how can you forget halloween-incidently, is this(well, apart from valentines day), the most ridiculous mad eup holiday ever!!but i digress, and anyway, i love halloween.

Back to christmas..ok so the bulid up can be kinda fun, but if your family is anything like mine, its just the most depressing thing ever to be surrounded by people all desperately trying not to kill the other with a turkey baster.
And whats more boring than the queens speech?and who actually likes quality street?
And as soon as its over, everyone gets all depressed and miserable in the anti climax, and then you realise the presents you bankrupted yourself buying are now available for half the original price...if you are bold enough to brave the january sales.Think primark on a saturday afternoon, then multiply volume of people by about 500 and your almost there. One more xmas conundrum...why do people camp outside for the next sale?!?!

All the above are perfectly legitimate reasons as to why my house currently resembles a grotto, with enough fairy lights to induce a seizure, and a tree so tacky it hurts to look at!:p

merry christmas.
and yes, im perfectly aware its still october.


Ha! now thats a bit more like it!

think im a bit more with it today:) which always helps!i might even make it out of bed today!hmn what to wear today...ive been coverting this cute little grey dress for months, which a have on a 'one day loan'from my friend, so im thinking that shall make me happy:) and i may have to add a lot of bows. Today im going to funk my denim skirt up a bit, cnat decide wether to make it look all nautical, or wether to bow it up, also have the cutest patch of a deer, which i mite sew on...hmn decisions!
and thats how exciting my life is!
oh, and i might actually do some uni work today:)


Thursday, 29 October 2009

somehow i thought a nervous breakdown would be more glamorous than this!

Ok-im not taking the mick-read my other blog, but seriously, surely this conjours up images of sofa's, duvets, an endless supply of kinder beuonos and kettle chips, and the odd bottle of wine or six, whilst watching lots of daytime tv, and only leaving the comfort of your duvet for the odd toilet break. All in all, a break from life, and a rather relaxing one at that...this is the stuff daydreams are made of.FACT.
Having a nervous breakdown...not so much. Ok, so im kinda joking, but i do feel seriously at breaking point at the mo...and yesterday i got to the omg i am never leaving my house/bed again/cant cope sort of scenario.and it was very messy, involving a lot of snot and tears.And a couple of very worried friends.and a few phonecalls to various out of hours services. and i still feel a mess, and you know what-well if you want my advice, daytime tv is rubbish anyway, its a surefire way to get a one way ticket to springfields, and it just aint glamorous.
im not taking the just trying to see if theres a funny side to this.and i think im failing miserably.

At least im having a good clothes day:)

lol, ok so its all a bit MEH, but today, am wearing my friends donated denim skirt(which i have major customisation plans for, involving buttons, patches and bows!),burgandy tights, a blue top and a stripy blue and white cardie:)this is prob the most sensible thing i have ever worn!must go find some mad jewellery, not quite right!


Meh all out of sorts today, need to sort my life out (or preferably, someone else tell me how to do this?!please!). Ive got so many big decisions to make and i dunno what to do.
ANd while we are at it , why are bloody boys sooo i said, meh.
Ok, so heres my ideal world scenario...juts humour me , ok? Im still 25, but im already a qualified physio, and I work in a hosp, but not in outpatients, in neuro or something. Ive got a lovely boyfriend(who, if he isnt Caleb from kings of leon, is at least either russian, or ginger.dont ask) and we live in a lovely house. Ive got a boxer dog called bailey, or maybe ruby, who i have just let out in to the orchard, where i keep my ponies, at the back of house. Im not rich, but im not poor, and im having a good time:)
Is it really that much to ask!!ok, daydream over, i could go on for hours. and to be fair, i HAVE got an amazing flat, which i love.
I just cant really understand how i managed to end up in cornwall, cos seriouslyits like a different country to where im from...south london lol.
its like i woke up one day and realised id missed about about 4 years of my life.
And i miss my best friend, who moved away, and all the mad adventures we got up to. Everyones changing and moving on, and its just reminding me ive wasted a big chunk of my life.
God, im in a good mood today, right?!:p

anyway, whats the famous last words donnie?...its alright tho...cos im having a good time!:P

suggestions on a postcard please

Haha went on mental roadtrip today...was supposed to be going to dartmoor, so my friend could study the ponies for her psyc project...however we both failed to realise we were unlikely to get there before it was pitch black and therefore pointless!

A few words of advice about roadtripping...its really not a good game to see how far you can get on an empty tank!!good old pete(car) is a total lege tho, he always see's us through!
Lol unavoidable toilet stops...always advisable not to stop somewhere public...yes you may well have found a hedge, until you look around and realise you are in front of a train station!:) also, t pays to remember two rules of driving...1.theres a reason you are not allowed to do u turns on dual carriage ways!and 2. if something goes wrong DONT just stop!!bloody hilarious, good times:)

and ALWAYS have some tubthumping like to dance:)


my poor nose!

well i must say, it looks fabulous today!just in case anyone thinks its a good idea-dont pierce your own nose!:p

a word about fireworks...a totally legit(albeit funny) reason i hate them!

so there I was mooching about my flat, quite happily making a cuppa (vanilla rooibos if your interested) and i heard the dreaded noise...sodding fireworks!! A couple of things i feel i quite strongly about- 1.its still daylight.whats the point?
2.its not even halloween yet!
I HATE fireworks. If i had one of those funky 'under the stairs' cupboards id go and take up residence every year about this time, for a couple of weeks. I'm not a spoilsport, but why watch your money (literally) go up in smoke?
Anyway, when i was about 5 or 6, my dad came over to visit and bought a box of fireworks with him, to try and bribe us to like him again (my parents divorced, dads visits were fairly eratic).
My dad, being a total genius pinned a catheine wheel on to our WOODEN garden fence.BANG! 'oooh vic, look at the pretty colours'.'oooh dad is the whole garden supposed to be on fire?!' GENIUS
Anyway, i now have an acute fear of fire.its a good job I dont smoke cos lightning up would have been an issue. I dont do candles, and I cant strike a match. I nearly failed my A level practical chemistry exam because i couldnt manage to light my bunsen burner(teacher took pity in the end).

Thanks guyforkes, for creating this marvelous holiday!


New nose piercing and surfing = sillyness

Well the other day I had the genius idea of re-piercing my nose, after it closed up. I spent ages sterilising needle etc, and though i did a grand job, until i woke up the next day looking not disimilar to rudolph...OUCH!
Anyways, today I went to the beach with my friend, and we went surfing.

Hmn actually I think this calls for a little see when I say surfing, what I actually mean is the newly invented sport called 'half boarding'.
How this works, is when your feeling especially skint, but really want to be having a giggle with your friend in the summer, you find a broken bodyboard which has been dumped on the beach. And, cos your mum always taught you to share, you break it in half...and viola!you have 2 perfect halfboards! we have since collected a random assortment of abandoned gear and boards, which i will no doubt tell you all about at some point!

Anyways we went today, and brightspark here had to cover her nose piercing up with micropore tape, to stop it just falling out in the sea...and yes, i did attract some strange looks(but that could also have been because i was wearing fluffy socks inside my surf shoes), but it did the job. Until i took it off and it ripped the sodding stud out!
which then meant i had to spend 10 mins in car trying to achieve a state of inner calm after i practically had to repierce the flipping hole again!!
A word of advice...dont do it!


leopard print im not joking!

i look ridiculous!:) i am wearing blue leopard print leggings, black shorts and a big grey top(yes, tho one friends have to practically wrestle me out of!) magnifique!!there is something about knowing i look oh so silly which i love!:) i feel this outfit must see daylight! i did something uber silly the other day...i decided to repierce my own nose...yes NOT the brightest idea, totally dont recomend it...looked fine after i did it, and now looks spectacular...lovely and red, so just been dousing it in surgical spirit!in hindsight, definately not ne of my brightest ideas!:P

haha how exciting is poundland!how many peices of tack are available for £1-many! need a flourescent yellow bucket-check. cow print pliers?yup. 'quality' beauty items-with all instructions/labels in foreign language-endless possibilites! I love poundland!! best game ever is to drag a friend in with you and see who can find the most tacky/disgusting/useless/amazing item!!
Today i bought-some false nail gems-oh the fun to be had!
a notebook in the shape of a cupcake
and was very tempted by a kiddies chalkboard

endless possibilities! oh, yo might have noticed, am very easily pleased!:p

Previous winners of the useless item competition have included a microwave jacket potato cooker(ie lurid and bizarly shaped piece of plastic), a 'magic tin opener'(indeed was magic, and cleverly disguised as a bottle opener-wrong box me thinks!), some dusters which alarmingly caused everything they touched to become yellow, and some 'water based' paints(99.9% water)
loves it!! xxx

its alright though...cos im having a good time!

Ok, so this is all going to be about things that make me happy...some things to know about a big loser:) but im proud! i love wearing mad clothes, tacky shoes and im quite happy to look like a bit of a fool if it makes me happy! I love clothes and jewellery-but not in a superficial clothes junkie kinda way, i just like how you can play around. Im not the most confident person that you will ever meet. My friends tell me ive got a 'funky' sense of humour, and i love making poeople laugh. I adore kings of leon, i love anything pink, bows, and sparkly stuff.ooh and im a bit obsessed with my hair straightners!
Today im wearing tights with a bow print on them, a blue cord skirt, and a burgandy jumper, pretty boring actually, so think will put my ballet shoes on(actual ballet shoes, i kid you not)
God i sound superficial...but hey, im not trying to write to make myself sound fantastic. Ive been going through a bit of a funny patch in life, and its made m realise that you have to start trying to be happy with yourself before anyone else can...ha i appear to have a tendency to say the cheesiest things! but also, well its made me realise who my real freinds are, and how important they are to me:) so im gonna make today a good day!:)

Being Me

Ok, so over the years there have been a lot of me's. You know when you just try to be what everyone else expects you to be? Well, recently i spoke to someone utterly amazing. She really helped me, and she will never know quite how much. Now im not going to go all oprah on you, she just told me something I really needed to hear...'that it is perfectly acceptable and utterly brilliant to be individual!'.
So before you start thinking thats totally obvious...well its not really, not always. And its not like i now totally love myself or just going to try out being me for a while, and not who everyone else thinks i should be. xxx
