Are you ready for Christmas? ★

I know a lot of people who are not ready for Christmas yet~ 

And usually I am one of those people who is not ready for Christmas until Christmas eve, but this year I am all ready for Christmas! I was actually ready for Christmas at the end of November (*´▽`*)

I had already bought and wrapped all of my Christmas presents and I had already written all of my Christmas cards (。’▽’。)

Last year, I was super unorganised and left everything til last minute and it was really horrible and quite stressful. I like having a plan and making sure everything is ready in time, otherwise I start freaking out and getting panicky. This year, I made lists of what I wanted to get people and where I could look. 

I also have a silver theme for my presents this year! ♡

I like to have a theme for the wrapping paper on the presents~

I love making the presents look really pretty with cute little bows (´∀`)♡

My wrapping isn't too bad this year either! 

I've also been getting into the Christmas spirit with some festive ice cream~

This mince pie ice cream was amazing! It tastes just like a mince pie~ ♡

And I really enjoyed this Ben and Jerrys ice cream too! 

I have a real obsession with ice cream!! (>y<)

Are you guys ready for Christmas yet?

First Christmas in my apartment ♡

It's my honey and I's first Christmas living together! ♡^▽^♡

However, we won't be spending Christmas day together because we're going to be spending them with our families ♥

But I decided I wanted to make our apartment look a little Christmasy! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

The problem is that we have a space for a tree, but after we're finished with it we have no place to store it (;*△*;)

So we have small decorations for our first Christmas living together~ (*^▽^*)

So our Christmas tree is a small light up Christmas tree that flashes different colours (★^O^★)

I also found a cute silver tinsel wreath to put on the door, and also some cute little snowflake shaped lights to hang across my bookcase~

Even though it's minimal it works for my honey and I ♪

When I have children I will put more efforts into Christmas decorations but I really like my minimal decorations this year ヽ(^o^)丿

I also went to visit my mum this week and she has her decorations up too~ 

Her tree looks so pretty and very traditional~ (♥ω♥*)

Back from resting~ (^~^) ♪

Hi everyone! Long time no see~ (*^▽^)/

I've been away for a while resting~ I've had a lot of trouble with one of my shoulders so I needed a bit of time to rest it. I have an MRI scan coming up soon so hopefully I will get some answers then! But until that point I'm relying on painkillers to manage the pain. The problem with my shoulder has really messed up my sleep, and I find it difficult to reach up; even getting dressed sometimes is very very difficult and I need help. This has been going on since at least from February this year and I've seen my doctor so many times about it /(x~x)\
During my time for resting my honey and I also managed to catch the Norovirus (-﹏-。) It was just our luck!

It was so unfair that my honey's lasted a couple of days and mine lasted six (☍﹏⁰)。

I spent most of the time in bed or sleeping on the sofa with my hot water bottle~

This is why I hate the colder months! I'm like a target for Norovirus and chest infections! ((´д`))

My honey also tried to lift my mood a little because I spent a lot of time in the apartment and so my mood became quite low and I became very lonely and so my honey treated me a little when he was not at work. 

On one of his days off we went for a meal at Chiquitos together~ 

We also had a look around a few shops and did some Christmas shopping!

My honey also bought The Walking Dead Monopoly as something for us to do~ (。’▽’。)♡

We have actually played quite a lot! (and he has won a lot more times than I have too.....) 
But whilst I was resting I was able to catch up with lots of concerts that I wanted to watch. 

I watched BIG BANG's ALIVE tour and it was amazing~ (´ε` )♡
I also had a bit of help to change my hair colour again because it's so hard to reach my head ( /)u( )

So now I have got rid of the blue in my hair and have become a dark brunette~ You can see how badly dry my hair has become so I definetly need to treat my hair to some TLC and a hair cut (′︿‵。)

A couple of days ago I also went to see Jimmy Carr at the Civic Hall here at Wolverhampton! It was a Christmas present for us from his Mum~ It was very very funny! I really enjoyed it and had a great time (*≧▽≦)ノ I enjoy watching Jimmy Carr on the TV so it was so nice to see him in person.

Blackpool stay ★

My honey and I have recently come back from a short stay in Blackpool~ (^▽^)

I had a few days off work so we decided to go away for a little bit as a change of scenery (/^▽^)/

We did quite a few things which were quite fun! ヽ( ★ω★)ノ

The weather was actually a lot worse than it looks. It rained quite often and was super super windy. I snapped this picture of Blackpool tower when the sun had appeared for the bit. 

We also had a walk along the beach side for a little while~ ( ^∇^)

But the tide was starting to get quite high so we had to move away. The waves were very pretty to watch though~

We went to a lot of arcades and played a lot of games. We tried to win stuff from the grab machines but we were not able to (; ̄д ̄)

We also went to a casino too! I've never been to a casino before and it was a lot of fun. We did not win anything but it was an experience!

Here are some pictures from the other things we did~

We went to Madame Tussaud's which is a famous line of wax work museums~

Some of the wax works were really good and realistic!

My honey with wax Louis Walsh and Simon Cowell~

Gok Wan~

Myself with the wax version of Keith Lemon on Celebrity Juice~

This wax version of Freddie Mercury was so realistic (。´∀`)ノ

I really liked this wax version of Lady Gaga but her arms look so scary and shiny ヽ(゚Д゚)ノ

We also visited the Sea Life Centre! I've never been to a Sea Life Centre before so I was really excited~ \(^▽^)/

Lobsterrr~ ( ‘з’)/

This is the biggest Japanese spider crab according to the Guinness World Records~ They call him Big Daddy. The picture doesn't show how big he is though because he's scarily big! (/。\)

This part was really really beautiful and full of so many kinds of different fish ヽ(^Д^)ノ

And you were also able to walk through a tunnel underneath it and see the fish close up. I really liked his fish who was casually sitting on the floor. He was really big too though!

Ahhhh pretty jellyfish! ( ★ω★)

And I found some fish like Dory out of Finding Nemo \(T∇T)/

We also went to an exhibit called Ripley's Believe it or not. Apparantely this used to be a TV show about amazing things from around the world. My honey knows the program but I have never watched it before, but the exhibit had some really interesting things.

This was an area about witchcraft (* >ω<)

And there was also a 'genuine' vampire killing kit which was quite cool to look at~

This statue of a horse is made completely out of deadwood, and it looks really amazing ( ^∇^)

And there was also this dress that was made entirely out of bicycle tires. There we quite a few interesting exhibitions inside.

I also wanted to have fish and chips whilst I was in Blackpool~

I wanted to eat them by the sea but because the weather was so bad I was not able to (;*△*;)

It was really really nice though!

I also wanted ice cream whilst I was in Blackpool~ This was a toffee sundae I had which was really really nice! (ノ^∇^)

This was the second time I have been to Blackpool and it was really really fun~
