Bokwa- My moment of madness

Tonight in a moment of complete madness i signed up to a Bokwa masterclass. This is so not a good idea for several reasons. One is that thanks to the EDS i need pain killers after just walking around for a short while. I can just imagine what i am going to feel like after an energetic Bokwa session.

However the reason i want to do it is to prove to myself i can, to meet some new people and to get everything in shape. Plus i do miss dancing. Though admittedly the last time i properly danced was 17 years ago. Is there anything that you have done in a moment of madness that you have later regretted? Or perhaps it was the best thing you ever did?

Back to Blogging

Ok i have chosen to go back to blogging.*again i hear you say* I can't promise that i will have anything interesting to say (In fact this part is doubtful) or if it will be a daily thing but I'm back for now at least :)

Well..What's new i hear you ask? Well actually i don't hear you asking, as that quite frankly would be just too darn weird and freaky. Anyhow, Let's not get me rambling on. Firstly i have completed my third Uni course. I am still awaiting the result of the last course. It should be any day now. So that's quite exciting. At least for me. This degree means more to me than a lifetime supply of Krispy Kreme doughnuts (I can dream) and that is saying something. Secondly i now own a bread machine, you cannot even begin to understand how this excites me..but it does. My bread baking skills aren't up to much but with this machine i can make the perfect loaf every time. Thirdly i have found myself watching television programmes i swore i would never watch, things like Come Dine With Me and even *holds breath* I'm a Celeb. I know..I know. I'm now doomed.

Anyway, I'm going to go back to watching it. Matthew and Joey have done amazingly well with the eating foul items challenge!

Catch you later. x

Spotted : Facebook Bullies

I had to post this as i find it shocking that facebook allows these "spotted" type pages.

The other week i noticed a fair few of my Facebook friends liking these particular pages, most appeared to quickly unlike but  i had a look...Well you have to right? (Yeah yeah I'm a nosy moo) Anyway i was shocked to say the least that these pages are allowed on Facebook. It seems like it is just a place where anonymous bullies..or cowards as i like to call them, Rip into people, the language is usually foul and they give so much info out about a person that they are picking on. I am shocked the comments and pages are allowed to stay.  Then you have the desperate Doris type that go something like "who is that girl/boy who works at such and such a place, i'd give him one" ...Well you get the idea.

Sometimes i really hate technology and i especially hate the way bullying seems to be more and more accepted when it's being conducted online and on social media sites.

There you have it - My whinge for the day.

Long time no blogging!

Ok, So it's been a long time since i last blogged so i thought i would catch up with you all.

I'm now doing two counseling courses via the Open University. It ties in with my degree and i am finding it a bit hard going at the moment. One course is really interesting and the other is a tad boring. I have however passed one assignment on the "tad boring" course, not with flying colours but it's a pass and that's what counts right now.It just means i will have to try harder for the next one and put much more effort into it.

I have also been making the most of the nice weather with some glorious days out and i even managed to find Tutti Frutti ice cream after 15 years of searching...and yes i even got it in a waffle cone...

Death of the Paperback?...

I confess that i really love proper books and turning pages of a E-reader doesn't have the same feel to it. I have tried to get on with them, for example i do have a Sony E-reader and it's a wonderful gadget i suppose. However it's just not something i have really fallen in love with. I find it cold and not very relaxing when i am sat there propped up in bed with my E-reader, yet with a paperback i feel more comfortable and i can curl up into the covers and drift off into my imagination.
However i was offered a book recently, in PDF form from an author and i politely turned it down. I know..I know..You're probably thinking "Ungrateful Cow" but is it right to accept something knowing that you probably won't use it?

So my question is..Does anyone read a normal book anymore? or do you favour E-Readers?

Catching up...

This evening i thought i would do a catching up post.

Firstly the boy in the red top from a previous post is apparently not Ben Needham so i will be removing the images. It's ever so sad as it looked like such a great lead and a big possibility it would be him. However more press surrounding the Needham family is a good thing and hopefully they will keep getting the full support of the UK and Greece to aid in the search. For info...You can now purchase wristbands on their website. and they are also holding an auction

On a totally different subject,  i ordered a cheesecake from as a gift and it is due for delivery on Friday! wooo hooo :)
I have been debating ordering one for weeks but the price put me off at first...however i have caved as it looked so yummy! I will upload a photograph of it on the weekend. :)

For now i will leave you with a photo of the sheep grazing in the fields. :)
