It was my birthday yesterday.

I am now 23.

It was a great day.

Spend the morning at a nursing home singing songs and a devotion.

Then worked from 12-5, not so much fun but its only 5 hours and my only shift all week so yeah.

Came home to a clean house, thanks to my sis E.

Had lasagne and garlic bread for dinner while we watched Star Trek 2, that my hubby bought for me.

He also bought me season 6, 7 and 8 of F.R.I.E.N.D.S dvd in the same style cover as the dvds of friends I already had. I am so lucky to have my husband!!!

I almost forgot it was my birthday a few times yesterday, how uneventful birthdays are nowadays. Ahh to be a kid again. Going to school with anticipation of going home and opening presents with the whole family there and going out to dinner.

Looking forward to spoiling my kids the same way too, one day eventually haha.

I got lots of other presents from my in-laws, who are amazing! Very lucky.

An outdoor setting for our newly paved patio, and pot plants with some very nice plants! So stoked to drive in the driveway to see them!!!

I will take some photos next week and post them up. It has been a very hectic week with family visiting, and heading up to Sydney tonight for my dads 60th birthday party tomorrow. Also as I type my assignment is due at midnight tonight... And I've barely done any of it, so I'm off to finish my powerpoint presentation and hopefully submit it before lunchtime! 

Wish me luck.

Hope you have a fantastic weekend? What are you up to on this fine school holiday weekend?

I am flogging my blog over with WithSome Grace for FYBF

I can't do it again...

How did I do it last time?

I lost a lot of weight leading up to the wedding. 

I didn't touch chocolate or fast food in almost 5 months.

And when they wedding was over, I pretty much packed all the weight back on, and then some.

I'm not saying I'm obese or anything, but I know this isn't the size I want to be.

Especially coming into summer, when last summer I bought new clothes, and this summer I can't fit into them!

But I just can't stop eating chocolate. Its frustrating me. I think, I'm doing really well, when for a 5 k run yesterday, haven't eaten too much bad food today.

Then I get into the chocolate and before I know it, the whole block is gone. What is wrong with me.

I know the only person who can stop me is me. But really, it's my own fault for letting myself go after the wedding. 

I really hate myself for doing that!

But alas, there are people worse off then me.

So I will savour this last piece of chocolate for the day. And go for a run tomorrow and try and start again.

How on earth did I do it last year!

When I Grow Up

"When I grow up I want to be happy"

I haven't exactly 'grown up'. You honestly are only as old as you feel.

When I was a teenager I wanted to be a doctor, and now I'm studying to be a nurse!

Same difference haha. I just like learning about the human body! 

The only thing I don't like is the assignments for the other subjects, like this psychosocial nursing assignment I need to do, like now, but am writing this instead, and crocheting.

I also didn't think I'd be married but I am, or that I would want kids, which I really do!

So when I grow up, I'd like to be a registered nurse and working full-time, I'd like to have some children, and I'd like to be more organised then I am now! With a clean house!!!

What do you want to be?

Starting Fresh

I have to admit, I've got writers block.

It's really frustrating me, because I love the creativity of blogs.

The design, the content, the community.

So I've been looking around for ways to try and reinvigorate my blog and in a sense me.

It has been a hard, tough, and pretty long year.

Starting so many new things, losing family members, welcoming new family members.

A new town, new marriage, new work and new study.

I came across Fat Mum Slim's article on 50 things to blog about so I'm going to steal one and write about it.

No. 14 -- The day you started blogging, what were you thinking?

I started a blog back in 2010 with a friend of mine. It was great, we were going to post about fashion, food, knitting, books, movies and music. We would each post in a different colour and end our posts with a -K or an -R.

It lasted about a month or two.

My sister Kylez over at A Study in Contradictions had been blogging for a few years and I really enjoyed reading her posts and looking at her photos. And found that I wanted to join in on the fun.

I'm not really sure what my intentions for starting a blog really were. 

I used to write little poems or short stories when I was younger, writing seems to be a family thing that goes back to my grandmother.

She wrote stories upon stories about the encounters she had with random strangers on the street in bankstown or about one of her 4 children or 15 grandchildren.

I was quite young when she past away so she only wrote one story about me. It was something to do with me wanting to eat lots of chips and chocolate. 

Not much has changed!!!

I find it hilarious that even at a 3 year old I had an infinity for consuming copious amounts of chocolate and hot chips. But hey, if this is my legacy I s'pose I should just accept it, if I tried to change it, I wouldn't really be my most natural self.

I think I tried to get to much into the 'popularity' of blogging, getting excited that I had people following. 

I started trying to get into the 'popular' group but in year 6, and by the time I was in year 7 realised that I did not want to pretend to be a different person every time I went to school. These girls just weren't like me and I shouldn't be trying to change myself. Just causes more embarrassing moments for myself.

Also, I have no children, so really my days are pretty boring without a little cuteness to talk about during my days. 

So from now on, I will endeavour to write for myself, write about things I love the most, watching movies, reading books, knitting and crocheting, and learning to be a nurse. (Hopefully I can start reading and watching more movies and books because I've been sorely lacking in those areas for the last 6 months!)

Hope your tuesday is going well.

Today is hubby's 23rd birthday, our first birthday celebrations together, I keep singing 'nobody likes you when you 23' (blink-182, in case you were unsure). I shall be making a lasagne from scratch (except the lasagne sheets, I buy those), but the white sauce and meat I got! And trying to find the recipe for butterscotch pudding which S loves so much.

Hope all turns out well, not a great cook. How did you spend you 23rd birthday?
