Keep Writing

Hi. I really feel like writing today because old posts make me miss doing so many posts... I'm feeling really sorry for my Nikon at the moment because its currently collecting dust on my shelf :( I don't know why but I've felt so put off using it and I kind of wish I had been using it. It's because a few months ago I started disliking the photos it was coming out with, but thinking about it that could of just been a one off.. I'm going Amsterdam the end of next week so I'm going to take it for that. I'm going to Awakenings Festival. A massive techno festival in Amsterdam gaaaah!! I'm so excited and I promise to take so many photos. I guess it'll be good to take both film and digital because currently I have 3-5 films to get developed so at least I'll be able to post pictures straight away. I'M SO EXCITED. 

I am sorry I have been posting so little. To be honest its been surprising me just how quickly the months are flying by. Like seriously this year is going so quickly for me and Tom. There are several reasons why it feels this way. I think its mainly because of my extreme planning and that once one major event is over, we're focused on getting to the next one. 
I do have loads planned for this summer. This coming Thursday I'll be going Fforest Fawr with the girls for a lovely walk/picnic. Then Friday off to Amsterdam. In July I'm going London with the girls on the second weekend and then the weekend after that there's an event in the Vaults that I'm very excited for aaaaand then the Tuesday after that weekend me and Tom are going on a camping/surfing trip. Hopefully I shall be able to learn how to surf hahah. There's a few other things I'd like to do but July is the only real month I can do them because the festival mayhem in August. But I'm glad I'm doing a good load of things already :) And I'm so happy with whats been planned this summer and how its all falling to place perfectly ^-^ 

Not much else to say really. My day to day life is the same as always. Work, walk home, have lunch, walk to Tom's shop, go to Penarth, go home. I've started a new book about Geisha's which should be interesting. My plants are pretty much still alive. (yesterday my new bonsai started blossoming!!) I'm trying to drink loads of water and walk lots and stay healthy and positive :) 
Lots of Love
and hopefully I'll have a bit more posts to do in July

What I Did In May

May has been another quick month. It hasn't been amazing weather but things seem to be turning around now and I'm really looking forward to a (fingers crossed) scorching hot weekend festival in Amsterdam!! That's at the end of the month. Hmmm I feel like I have nothing to say, and if I tell you about my life atm I'm just repeating what I've said before. Nothings changed. Work work work. Enjoying opportunities to go on adventures/days off. So why don't I tell you about my week. Monday  was a rainy day I remember, cold and rainy and nothing like June 1st should be. I walked to Tom's work around 3.30pm then waited for him to finish. We walked into town to do some shopping, I got some new trainers, a pair of summer trousers (which I had to return cos they had a rip in them and they didn't have any more of my size to exchange so I now have to wait until my refund comes through to buy them online :c ) and I also got a pair of sunglasses. We then had some food at Five Guys which was really good because they gave us a ridiculous amount of fries we just couldn't finish. We then got back to Tom's house welcomed by a roaring fire. So we sat downstairs for a while and then went upstairs to watch Game of Thrones. Tuesday I had a day off and it was spent being as lazy as possible. Tom had work so I slept in and slowly had breakfast and then basically read all day until he finally returned. Wednesday we went to Noah's Ark Farm Park for Jacob's (Tom's nephew) 2nd birthday. That was really fun and the meerkats were so cuuute. We then walked back to mine around 8pm. Thursday I was back to work, (until next Tuesday) after work I headed to Tom's and then around 6/7pm we had a big BBQ which was delicious :) So all in all its been a good week so far. As for the rest of today I think I might walk to Tom's shop in a bit and then hopefully have an early nights sleep because I woke up so tired this morning. Blah blah blah. It's fun to write what you've been up to even though I doubt any body cares :3 Soooooo here are some photos I have taken on my iPhone this month!
 20 woo!

Film: Jan, Feb, March and April 2015

How to start a post when you haven't written in at least 3 weeks. Hmmmmm, sorry? I wish I could still post as much as I used to back in 2013 and even 2014 but I can't. I don't know why, maybe I don't have enough time or enough photos, or maybe because I'm so used to my surroundings everything has already been captured. Trust me this blog is not over. I'll still post in here and I have many plans for posts next year since I shall be travelling! But this year is the get on with work year. Earn that cash, save that cash. One day after the next. Yeaaaah I still do stuff but its just me stuff, walking for the sake of it doesn't have to be captured with picture after picture. Neither does every single night out or lazy day in. I'm just living at the moment and thats fine by me. I'm still trying to take photos every now and then and now it's beginning to look a bit more like Summer (fingers crossed) I will be taking more photos on my film cameras. Also I'm finding it harder to spend money on film so films get developed a lot slower - this one being a perfect example. 
So hows my life?! Good :) I've been walking a lot lately and I love it. I'm trying to make myself walk home from Tom's (Penarth) more now its warmer and to be honest its such an easy walk... Also its fun to push yourself. I've also been working a bit more than usual, the Executive Lounge I work in us now open 7 days a week so lately I've been finding myself doing 7 days of morning shifts then 2 days off and back into another 6/7 days of work again. I guess I don't really mind because it'll mean I'll have a better pay with summer coming up, but I do get really worn down by the end of the week. S'all good.
Today I'm off to meet Tom in the Bay (walking of course) and we're going to grab some late lunch and then see where the rest of the day takes us. For now here are some pictures. Taken on the Minolta which I am definitely going to start using again because it's such an amazing camera. These pics were taken from January 20th to April 9th. Don't ask me the specific dates of days I do not remember....
Much love!!
A grey January day
 Walking Tom's dogs
We walked from my house to Cosmeston Lake and then back :)

What I Did In April

Hello! I know I didn't do one of these posts in March which was a shame. So I'm happy to be doing it this month. This month was full of sunshine and adventures, it made me very happy and feeling much healthier than when the weather is poop (like today). I don't want to blab on too much and I don't really have anything special to say so here is What I Did In April :)
 Cardiff Flower Show
 I've begun drawing all my plants and taken down information on them. It's super fun ^_^
