Novels & constant fallen head in over heels... again!

Well here I am, don't worry I'm not dead... well I thought I had died after being surround by a load of Roses & Quailty Streets! But I am honestly fine *fangirl heart attack* *gasps* apart from I have fallen head over in heels with another two or possibly three amazing actors. oh lordy!!

Well the three actors I fallen for are the main characters from the Christmas hit show, 'Death Comes to Pemberley' I honestly can't stop searching them into google!

So the actors are Matthew Rhys who played Darcy, Matthew Goode played the charming Mr Wickham and there was another but I am struggling to think what his name is. Now the program was mostly filmed in Yorkshire and stunning Derbyshire! Chatsworth to be precise just a few miles from quiet and sweet Bakewell where I visit at least at once a year.

Merry Christmas

Charlie Peace - Review by Lucy Wakefield

I attended a performance called Charlie Peace: His Amazing Life and Astounding Legend at the Nottingham Playhouse on Monday 7th October 2013.

It tells the story of a Victorian criminal who lived in Nottingham’s Narrow Marsh for a time. He was known so well he was described as a celebrity villain & regularly changed his appearance to escape the police!
Peter Duncan played the notorious Charlie Peace and Norman Pace played the humorous showman. It featured various art forms including drama, music & graphic art by artist, Eddie Campbell.
I attended this event because the connection with local history interested me. Also, I was lucky enough to be offered discounted tickets via my drama group (Junkshop Theatre Company).
I liked the set design, which changed multiple times from a circus-like tent to different houses, to a train, a courtroom and finally to the gallows. Each time the set changed, graphic art was used including the characters’ faces on spinning coin projections.
I also enjo…

Richard III - Review By Lucy Wakefield

On the 28th October, I saw a performance of Richard III at the Nottingham Playhouse.


The play had a contemporary atmosphere which was achieved by the use of costumes (suits for the men, evening dresses for the women and modern army uniforms during the final battle scene) and music (Disco). Despite this, they still used original Shakespearean text.
The play tells the story of Richard III’s rise to power destroying anyone who stood in his way.The actor (Ian Bartholomew) who played the lead role, King Richard III enticed the audience into his twisted mind. In some scenes he flipped between emotions from paranoia to murderous to remorseful/depressed after having another character killed. Bartholomew’s portrayal was charming and occasionally funny and left me unsure whether I should like him or not.
The artforms involved were theatre, dark comedy, drama, visual and sound effects.
I chose to see this performance because I love Shakespeare and I had not seen this play before.
I adored the costum…

Light the skys! - Part Two of Night Photography

The photos you see below are taken by me using a Canon PowerShot x50 IS on AV 15". I have had no experience in this area & have self taught myself to take photos. I would however like to thank Izzie Shier's dad showing me how to use the AV setting during a small matter of time at Arts Award! The following photos are lights on buildings & lampposts on high LCD bulbs. enjoy x



' *+.+* ' *+. Night Photography .+* ' *+.+* '

Night photography is a particular favourite medium I love to use when I am on my way home on either a fast train to walking next to a busy main road. I will say it's addictive! If you do try it wrap warm & have a good camera like mine that can slow but still focus on fast approaching objects. I used my Canon PowerShot x50 IS camera which has a setting that can be edited. These were taken on  'AV' setting on number  15".  I will do a video soon! In the mean time enjoy x

Nero Caffe - A bitter taste of customer service

This is for Nero caffé on Carrington St which occurred at 5:05PM on 15th of December.

I was ordering a lovely warm hot chocolate to soothe my throat which has left me In pain for sometime. I queued & waited. Later a staff member said a till was open to be served. I queued & waited.

I was served by female barista with light blonde hair up in a bun & she look like she was in her late teens early twenties. "Can I hav-..." She stopped me & told me to move out the way & smirked horribly.

I was humiliated, I died inside and I wanted to burst into tears, my throat wasn't helping either. My throat continued to feel like stabbing pains & leaving my voice shaken.

 I am posting this so she knows that disgusting customer service like that shouldn't be tolerated! I am sending another complaint email AND I wouldn't recommend anybody else using the caffe either!

Christmas spirt is leaping in!

So with Christmas pretty much running towards & panic comes rushing in saying "Presents! You need to buy presents!". I have bought presents but just need to buy cards, I don't want anything tacky just something that would give the essence of Christmas & family. If you get my drift.

I am quite looking forward to the year & I am planning to make it a fresh new year. Which has already begun as I have had 4inchs of my beautiful long near bottom hair chopped off. Its now just end of shoulder blades long. I will admit I cried, because it took 5 years of regrowing it. But I only began to reliase, I need it shorter because it would make things just a little easier & also, my hair is far waver than I actually thought. all this time complaining about long straight hair & it turns out to be unbelievably wavy!

Excuse any spelling mistakes, its nearly 1 am & I am multi-tasking watching 'Julie&Julia' & blogging for you guys.

I am making a vow t…

Swing sweet childhood

This is my one of my pride & joys also my escape to a new world. My swing, I built aged 10 using a tyre rope & a washing pole. The wood? From a dismantled bird feeder stand. I love this swing to pieces & sad to say, I am far to big for it now. Seven long years enjoying & laughing.

Smile!

We're always told to smile & who can blame them, who wants a glume photo of a sulky kid. Through out my childhood I hated having my photo taken, but I reliased, will I regret it? One day we'll cringe but there memories which are there for a reason. What I am trying to say is just capture one thing, develop the beautiful postives & delete the negatives. Life may not be in colour but its still amazing, no matter how dark. Smile!


Facts - Sk8re Girl

Believe it or not, I use to skateboard. I was 12 and stopped when I was 14years old. I attempted not long ago & lets say I failed. Fell over on my backside xD

Let's Light the Skys!

It's here, the sky will be lit with Christmas lights. Gonna stay far away from the 'Santa' just find him an absolute creep. I only 'believe' to enhance the magic xD let's face it, we reach the stage where its your parent probably dressed as santa and leaves a thank you note. Sorry if I ruined magic for some! But I do believe in fairies, we all have something we believe in.

When I was 8 I used to believe toys came to life when I was away or out of my bedroom and would peep to see, and I believed that for years.

Actually why am I telling you these things? O.o

Things I thought I would never do!

Though I am 17, I thought I would tell you the things I have done through the life of being a teenager.

Editor of children's magazine - The Monthly Mail - 2008 to 2012 - I would edit articles, often write up reviews & I illustrated the header each month.

Radio Presenter - Blue Mondays & Butterflys are 3 - 2012 - I presented Blue Mondays with my sister for a few days & presented on Butterflys are 3 for a week I think with my sister & a friend which went on YMCA radio.

Illustrator - 'The Boy Nextdoor' by Lucy Fenwick - 2013

I will probably update this post soon when I have remembered the other things xD

Adventful year ahead!

No 'Adventful' isn't a typo :P but quite literally next year is going to be insane! I thought new year, perfect to start a new life normally that means redecorate your room. Nope I am quite literally going to zooming around the place. so been a while telling you what my week is really, so here goes!:

Monday - Art Class in the Morning followed by structured work with mum & script learning in the evening.

Tuesday - Structured work in the morning, script learning in the afternoon & Arts Award in the evening.

Wesenday - Shopping, script learning in the afternoon & self teaching/learning hobbie. Evening Christmas light switch on.

Thursday - Matlock for the whole day & script learning on way there and back and in the evenings too.

Friday - Jumble sale at the church (ooh love a good bargain!), Possible structured work, script reading & rest.

Saturday - Script learning.

Sunday - Cousins comeover & drama through out the whole day from noon.

Soo bit of a bus…

Sucess!

After waking up & having only 40mintues to catch the bus to go to art class, I got home at 2pm. I went upstairs to greet my mum & there it was, the parcel I have been awaiting for sooo long! It's a Basic Level 2 English distant learning course equal to GCSE. Really happy as I can take time, though 25 lessons but hey! It's 7hrs a week but that's not bad.

Did you know children are told not to take GCSE's (Exams) under the age of 17? And the most you are aloud to take is 4 GCSE's at a time. Apparently its a health issue which is always casted away by schools & college's. How sickening is that?

On the issue of schooling vs home schooling, I would like to know out of 100% how many children & teens are bullied? And if its high time the education system, health & mental act took it seriously!

So this was part of a campaign I think where there starting to encourage young & old to buy independent artist, such as myself who hasn't got much experience but has lots to give.

Would you guys buy any of my paintings or Jewerly? x

Addictions to the Social Medias

So I super for not blogging, I have quite literally changed... After watching a YouTuber, Amazing Phil (my friend had recommended) I decided to check him out at midnight. Yeah, probably not the best time to watch videos since I had to be up following morning bright & early! Well the video was called 'Animal Crossing Has Ruined My Life' - you'll get my point soon!
I joined Facebook to increase views on my artwork and I literally become addicted to the blooming site. Not like spending one hour on it, oh no, more like download the app & checking it each morning & night. And using it on the computer too :/ urgh. I like the app because I can see old friends & keep touch. But its taking over my life as blogger which is terrible because so far this blog has gone round several countries around the world!

So I am considering to deleting the Facebook on my phone & checking it for half an hour at the most on my computer.

So my new things of being a fangirl of i…

Meadowhall with a slight chance of long queues....

Today I went to Meadowhall & finally spent some of my birthday money! I bought some earrings to completey destruct ( for my business) & some clothes. The clothes I bought were in reductions, a black with white ghost jumper, a mini short sleeved top with my little ponies (completely kawaii) & I also bought a really quite Green Peace top with different words to positive about the world. x

Long weeks & pure madness!

So, after getting emails for leaving you guys on the edge of when I am going blog post again, fear not, I am still here but really busy! I am constantly now finding it hard to organise when to blog. I am planning when I will post & hopefully with permission (yeah, don't laugh!) become a youtuber like Emma Blackery & Cherry Wallis (Massive girl crush on them!).

So just wanted to say I am still online & trying to blog! Prepare my prettys for rants, thoughts & my life!

Organising & Respones

So everyone, I am so sorry for not posting over the few weeks. I have been having a well needed holiday! I have been so stressed from this year & its been crap (not relieving). So I am going to try & post everyday but only if I can.

To the person who contacted me, I appreciate your feedback & I am taking it into action. x

Sisterly Love

My sister bought a bargain bag from Avon & she got a pair of really stunning (pierced) earrings, She loved them but she was upset they couldn't be worn. So I said I would see what I could do :) I took the pair by curling the piercing & getting rid of unnecessary sharp edges. Within 1hr I had made a necklace & a matching phone charm :)


Just Believe in Faith

So Faith is by my side. I gave up on Hope years ago but Faith however is there.

So on Monday I went out into the city on my own. Yeah your probably thinking "She's 17 & never been out on her own?!", I am one of those less independent teenagers that aren't super dare-devil! I am the sort where I am like to be sensible & stay organised. So back to the city thing, I went into Nottingham to attend Art Classes :) I have taken up 'Drawing Still Life' & 'Culture from Around The World'. At around 12:30 I walked to find my bus. The first bus was late so I decided to take one of the Three's. Though I had to walk home which wasn't okay because the 'dickhead' cyclist decided to follow me. I started running down a few houses & soon I lost him. If 'dickhead' did try anything I would soon push him into the road! I got home & planned my outfit for the evening. I wore a beautiful light brown dress with black dots, a cute pet…

WARNING TO YOUNG READERS & PARENTS - THERE WILL BE SWEAR WORDS.


I want to cry. Yesterday I won a family ticket to Robin Hood Pagant & I couldn't use it.

And today I had verbal abuse from a 'dickhead' on a bike! He came full speed down the hill and tried really hard to knock me & my sister over, I thought oh no you don't. What did I do? I shouted at him because it was same bloke from last night who tried the same thing. I pulled my sister in  quickly & shouted "GET ON THE ROAD!" he responded too " Stupid f*cking girl, I have right to cycle" Yeah not on a path & giving verbal abuse to young people. But he did have the right to rinse his dirty mouth with bleach!

My mum said "She's not stupid" "It's alright mum, I will stand in front next time & go with a nice paramedic & Later sue the backside off the cyclist."

But that's not my plan, I am going to shout dickhead everytime he try's it …

Goodbye dear friend!

so I was swinging on the tree swing that I built when I was 10 with my nan. I have had many memories and now its time to watch it swing solo in the wind & rain. I am saying goodbye one last time after one last swing. I am sadly too big for it & plus the rope is unstable to hold me :( And coming of the swing, I caught my skin of my index finger in the rope & ripped a chunk of skin off. So nature is telling me say goodbye & become a 'Lady...Woah Woah Woah, She's a Lady, Talk'in about that she's a lady!' seriously couldn't help myself.

I am having to go to bed at 22:45pm because I have a performance. really excited  & I hope to blog about it.

When Phones were 'Bricks'

So I was rummaging though old boxes and found my second old phone. I went through my messages & apparently it's not my phone, neither am I called Lucy. Apparently it belongs to 'Jackie' a sixty year old women who is from Yorkshire.

I sat on my bed laughing listening to the messages. I mean would a sixty year old women own a bright and I mean bright phone?! I recharged it & deleted everything because it is going to my phone for business.

Script Reading

Well that sort of worked followed by a fab sister row. I am getting better I think at understanding characters.

I am so tired because I couldn't sleep till 3am! It had nothing to do with watching Casualty at 2am! hahaha oh dear it might been.

So I am getting a little nervous about Thursday & I don't know why because its my 20 something play I have ever done. Maybe it's because it's in a university...

I am having fun at my new group just one thing though. I am missing a old friends from my old drama group (RYSC). This time last year we were getting ready for the Christmas show & all the teens would just laugh & mess about in break. I think that's what I miss quite a bit having girly giggles & stuff.

I remember putting on the most high pitched American accent and my friend who was American would cringe from my cheesy accent! Haha good times.

.Quick question to anyone on facebook. Anybody having trouble posting? :L meh probably a glitch...

No Half Term for you, my young girl...

Hope your enjoying your Half Term. Well for me I have a lot of work & practising todo so no half term for me... well not this week anyway ;)

its.....RANT TIME!

For christs sake, sorry everyone but this is going to be a rant.

I went in search for Hama Beads as I am running out quite quickly after a lot of interest in the jewerlly. (Note - I will try to post some samples tonight).

Well I went to Tesco to search for anything cheaper as Hama Beads can be quite expensive. So I had a look "hmm" I thought "4000 beads, that will last for at least two months" *looks at the price* "£5.50! You have got to be absolutey kidding me! Only two weeks ago it was £3.60.".

So I walked to Home Bargains because I need a contact book for orders & feedback. I looked on the around on the Crafty part, nothing.

"Okay" I thought "Not a problem, I'll try ARGOS." So off I toddled with hope. Walked in, looked on the touch screen and was there Hama Beads? Yeah around 10,000 beads in a massive bucket for £10. "Perfect" I said with glee, then I looked at the small print thang. " 'Home Delievery&#…

Over The Moon!

I am honestly jumping for joy this morning.
I applied to illustrate a talented young Lucy Fenwick's new book. After a couple emails & showing samples of my work on here (See previous post). I am pleased to say I am illustrating her new book. I am over the moon! Its not the first time I have had this chance, its actually my second.

Now for my 'Past Week Thang' :

 On Monday - I did work with mum & created some hama bead or 'pixel art' for my business 'The Stitched Bluebird'. People having been taking an interest in my Jewerly more then my felt~y stuff but that's ok because I am learning about feedback & what people want :)

On Tuesday - I went Arts Award & completed a letter about my photography and too hopefully work with a more experienced artist.

On Wesenday - What can I say 'Utterly Soggy' should narrow down everything xD

On Thursday - I did some work with mum & worked on 'pixel art'

On Friday - Woke up to the mo…

Watercolour & Sketches

Support together!

So yesterday I supported 'RETT Syndrome Awareness Day'. 1in 10,000 girls are affected. They can speak, Walk or move thier arms. You can support by wearing something purple :) I wore my David & Golitha purple shirt & took a selfie. x

a true emo in disguise

Believe it or not mother fluffers but I am actually an emo. I wear floral and girly clothes to hide the fact I am emo and okay I am going to say ready, I am bi.

Right now I am listening to one of my favourite songs 'Welcome to the Black Parade' - MCR (my chemical romance)

So currently I am quite litarally drooling over a bloke for aspiring career.

Now, I am thinking of going to college maybe next year or look into something todo with Performing Arts because I will do anything to get be a better actress plus perform alongside my favourite actors.

I am still bribing someone to let me sing online. I don't think my voice is that bad, I only want to do it to get feedback :)

Hurry up weekend

It's Thursday, oh happy days we're literally two days till the weekend! So recap. On Monday I did some work with mum, Tuesday I didn't do any work (lack of sleep & really paranoid) don't ask about the 'paranoid' bit because literally I was board-a-line mental... although I went to Arts Award. On Wesenday I did a bit of homework to gain a little extra work.

And Today... We are at home, oh holy motherfluff balls! We're at home because mum is sadly caught my nasty cold. I don't even think it's a cold... oh great paranoia is setting again, Ignore whilst I sulk.

So I am going to try & finish my homework. Procrastion likes to strike when I work... I call it squirrel syndrome because whenever mum asks a question I will say something which is not relevant and she'll shout "Squirrel!". Honestly me & my family are weird at times. I sometimes wonder a lot of things...

I bid you goodbye just for now but please expect posts this eveni…

Madness, Homework & Lazyness

With a reather hearty week about to go in pure madness has reached a weekly thing.

On Monday's I am doing work with mum, yesterday I had English, Maths & Science. Luck was on my side because I got 80% in  Science. I normally despise the subject and will hide or reject to do it. But I kind of acted more grown up about. I gave it a try and I seem to getting the hang of science but next year I plan dumping the subject altogether! English also went well *aside* as always. I have to admit I really love Maths & English because they're two subjects I use practically everyday. Maths I use for my business & English, well, I used to do a lot of proof reading for a magazine I worked on. Auto correction has been stuck in my head ever since, which will be a bonus for the English course I plan to be taking in a few months time! Exciting!
On Tuesday's I do work with mum & in the evenings I go to College Street for my arts award. In gold you have to choose two artforms. I…

Birthday Pictures

The long awaited birthday pictures :) enjoy x

Question for fellow bakers!

So after getting back into my love for baking. I have baking since I was 7. I remember baking my first Victoria Sponge and loving every second! Recently I have gone a little bit different! On Wenesday, part of my free time 'Self-teach' or 'Life Skills' to those who are slightly indepentant! I baked some Lemon & Poppyseed Muffins. Now my question is would you like me to start posting recipes? Now I can do it as normal posts or a seperate blog. Let me know down in the comments!

Matlock & a soggy bottom

Today I went to Matlock with my beautiful new camera. My new camera is a bridge camera pretty similar to a Nikon. Its actually a Canon Bridge Camera 30x HD :) I am literally in love.

I dropped my sister off at her drama group. Me, my mum and my nanny decided to take a trip the nature reserve. After looking for it we started to wonder & came across a little park with two bridges and long stream. We walked around and everything became wider. We realised that we were in the woods and mum decided to test me on my science. You know the Igneous, Sedimentary & Metamorphic... No? To put it more better way 'The Rock Cycle'. So she tested me & I seem to getting the hang of it. We walked further up the path and suddenly cliffs with many different coloured started appearing. Underneath the cliffs was a lead mine.

Considering it was starting to rain we walked in search of the war memorial. We went up a decent hill till after ten minute's became a ridiculous climb! But whe…

Day Out to good ol' Skeggy!

For my 17th birthday I went to Skegness. The Journey was long but nice. I am typing whilst with a lovely cold!

I woke up at 7:30am and checked Instagram and Twitter. At 8am I opened one present, my new camera. She is stunning! I had to put my present upstairs and get ready to go out. We walked to catch the Nottingham train. We arrived in Nottingham around 10am ish and had to find the Skegness service on platform 2. We left the Nottingham station at 10:20am and arrived in Skegness 12:22pm.

We walked down near the sea front (North Parade) and found the café from our last visit in 2007! Me, My Sister, Mum & Nanny each had fish and chips. The fish was long as the beginning of you wrist to near the beginning of your elbow.

After some lunch we walked down to the beach. Not many people were there so it was nice to walk beside the tides. I took my phone to take photos and a notification came up. It was birthday message from my favourite casualty paramedic Norman Burnton played by the f…

The Human Ants in Suits

On Thursday I took two trains back from Matlock. The train ride Matlock to Nottingham is a very nice ride because we spend 30mintues looking around the countryside. It's rather amazing but when you arrive into the first city, Derby. All you see are people rushing around! I like to think them as Human ants in suits.

The train buzzed a looking far accoss staring at me was a BBC Radio presenter for Derby :) Sadly didn't get to chat but had stare contest! We arrived into Nottingham at five. I went to find the platform and sat down on a blue lonely bench. A man walked past stopped and looked around, I reliased he was blind and stood up quickly and offered my seat to him. Soon quickly after it was taken by a fat lazy and completey rude woman. I was talking to a friend for 20mintues and the train quickly came in. I had to run all the way down two platforms in order to get my family a seat. I was sat opposite some acholics being rather rude and possibly very, very drunk indeed!

 I sat…

Fangirling

Oh god... I am literally fangirling over Casualty. Not in a way where you look at your favourite male character and start to drool followed by a loud noise of "Phwoarrrr". No in my case I look at a character and non stop looking online for updates.

My favourite characters on Casualty at the moment are: Jeff & Dixie (the two paramedics) and Sam & Tom (two doctors who are literally an adorable couple :3 )

Seriously sorry it's a short post but internet is being a pain in the backside and I am really tired because the pain in my side is starting to get to me and really starting to tire me out. I thought I was going to collapse today. I would rather pass out and go to A&E then go to the GP!

Going to have an early night because I am not feeling so great. x

Acting in Pictures

Ladies and Gentleman! I am releasing my acting pictures. Credit to those who took them! I am releasing not only the pictures but giving you the link to a review I was featured in last year!

The following photos were taken at Newark Castle on the 21st July 2012 from the play 'Taming of the Shrew'. I played Babtista Minola for two nights. I really enjoyed performing with cast in the summer. I miss my amazing hand sewn coat & hat.

More photo's will be released soon!  Meanwhile here is the link to the review for Taming of the Shrew  & the article about Julius Ceasar.

4 Train Thursday

So it's Thursday again so I had to catch two trains to Derbyshire & two trains back. But I guess I should tell you from the beginning what I did for a few hours.

We walked out of the train station and made my way to the crossing for the long bridge. After deciding where to eat, we sat and ate. We took my sister to her class and made my way to a vintage art & craft shop. As we started walking up the road, it started to get hiller & far more hiller. My chest felt tight and side hurt. We stopped and turned round to look at the amazing scenery. We turned again and saw how far to walk and took another hike up the freaking great big hill. We arrived at the shop and took a look around. We went to sit down for some drink. I had a coffee in a delightful fine bone china mug with a pheasant in a gold colour on the side. At the bottom of the cup looked like a carefully handpainted rose. My mum & grandparent had a cup of tea. What made this afternoon even more nice was sketchin…

The Girl Who Travel's

The amount of traveling I do is pretty mad. We don't have a car so I constantly rely on public transport. But to be honest I adore traveling. The train has to my favourite because of the views. It's not that bad. Considering in other countries the transport is pretty mad!

I think the United Kingdom's transport is just lazy... The longest time I have had wait was around 2-3hours.

Might consider walking if it doesn't come after 1 hour!

The longest the amount I of travel I have done on a mode of transport must have been 10hrs on a bus to Newark and on a sunday...it was a nightmare. I hardly travel there because of transport timing!

Still I must bid you guys adiu due to having to catch transport in a hour. x

"I Can't See it?!" - Visualising Problems

You may remember I broke the news about being a Visual Learner a few months back, well I thought I would answer some questions which have been asked over the weeks. So here goes:

Q: Can you see stuff when your reading?

A: Pretty much, may favourite book I loved visualising was 'The Sweepers Boy'. But if I can't see anything in my head the words will jump off the page and have a light moving them around. Sometimes the words will look like their tumbling out of the page.

Q: Does Visualising hurt?

A: Not really but it can be distressful. Say if I need to visualise something important and its not there I can get really upset.

Q: What's the good thing about being visual?

A: I guess really it has to be when  I am painting or crafting. Plus I can see stuff how it would look before it's made! I find it useful in calm situations.

Q: Can you visual things when you acting?

A: Sometimes. I can visualise characters from scripts very quickly. When I write sometimes I can ofte…

Welcome back Nerdy!

So nerdy is back and more badass with work than ever! I love Maths & English. But I loathe science, don't get me wrong, I enjoy the periodic table but heaven forbid my mind hates the subject.

Tomorrow I plan to do the same amount of work but means I have wake up tomorrow bright and early! Because I am off to Beeston in Nottingham for a workshop. We are making planters! probley save it for my Grandad as a Christmas present.

So latest in the Social Network world:

INSTAGRAM - I recently added a picture of a sketch I did of Hatsune Miku. I was liked by the official creators!

TWITTER - I posted how come next year is going to be speacil because on my 18th I plan to give blood. I think it will be speacil not for just me but for other people too who need it. GiveBloodNHS had noticed the tweet and agree it's a lovely thing to do. I have been flutterly around the house today!

GOOGLE+ - People have been recently loving a post I did on 'That's a Teens Life' about a skirt…

Education - The Motorway Vs The Long Route

Well you may remember a post about my non institutional life and comparing home education to schools. A dear friend forwarded a message about 'School is a Prison - and damaging our kids!'. I thought the article was really interesting and I have decided to share it with you.

Also not long a go I posted about my decision  not to go to college due to also a 'prison feel' & spoon fed education. I was told it wasn't school-y well here we are beginning of the term. Many of my old friends have gone to college and they seemed in a panic state when I told them I haven't taken a exam based GCSE. To be honest, would you like to sit over a table for one hour and half and 'throw up' everything you have learnt for the sake of piece of paper? I would rather do a useful skill based qualification but something that was recognised.

So far from hearing from my friends who have gone to college have said they wish they never went. They came upto and messaged me and sai…

A Wonderful Saturday!

This afternoon in Beeston I ran a stall part of my small business The Stitched Bluebird. I sold a few items but plenty of brooches still left over! I decorated and upcycled vintage fine bone China mugs, made cute bows in various colours, decorated frames & fixed old frames. I also made; earings pierced and clips. I had a tool kit to convert a pair of earings to suit the customer whether for themselves or as presents. When the customer bought a product they were wrapped and then placed in a bag with a business card attached.During the day I had my hand painted with Henna (a natural temporary tattoo lasting for upto a month). A gentleman won a load of prizes from the tomboler and didn't want them and gave them to me! I also spent my day chatting to friends and local people. Facts about Henna:1. It's a colour between red-brown and orange-brown.2. The dye is made from the leaves of an asian shrub or small tree, Lawsonia inermis, of the loosestrife family, having elliptic leave…
