Last month was chaotic, from wedding dress shopping to photo frame decorating we all jumped on board to help my Dad and, now Wife, prepare to tie the knot!
Having slightly neglected my blog over the last few months I felt I owed it the low down of the day.. or more importantly, the outfit!
Weddings are stressful, particularly for women looking to find that perfect dress, and no, I don’t even mean the bride! I mean the guests! .. I spent what felt like decades looking for the right dress, trying on frocks from the likes of Ted Baker, French Connection and Reiss yet failing epically. I enjoy a statement piece and so a neutral colour was not quite going to cut it. My search spanned over several weeks and covered numerous cities. London, Manchester and Newcastle had failed me.

Someone once told me that you are what you think about most. A crazy statement to make.. I mean currently I’m thinking about chicken nuggets.. I’ve not transformed into one massive battered piece of chicken. But that’s not quite what the statement means.
I have a friend, a very positive loveable optimistic friend, who introduced me to the powers of positive thinking a few years back. She told me that if your defeatist and upset then how can you possibly attract good things to your life. You must always look on the brighter side of life *I sense a song coming on*. So I decided to do just that, and over the last few years decided to put her theory to the test.
It’s easy to fall into a state of ‘can’t do’s’ and so she told me that the powers of positive thinking lies with visualisation, being able to visualise what you want to attract to your life being present in your life already. A difficult feat for a typically sceptical girl. I’m not the most optimistic of people: downside, but when I think about something I want my brain witters and witters until it’s exhausted the subject: upside. I used this quality to put this theory to the test.
eee I’m sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve posted guys! Danbo’s proving to be quite a handful.. so much so that I’ve had my hands full this past month! .. Firstly IVE GRADUATED. Pictures to follow. Me and Danbo have, however, been making a little picture diary of what were been upto to share with you. He’s quite the little poser, you have been warned.
The 15th of November was a good day for me and Danbo, we went to London to buy shoes for my Graduation from York St John University. A long day trailing round the shops tired my little man out! However he did discover enough energy to have a play around in my new shoes! haaa!
Whoop! On Thursday the 17th of November I graduated! .. as much as it should of been a day about me little Danbo got jealous, I supplied him with his own cap and a party popper which soon cheered him up! how lovely he looked beaming with pride hahaa! Such an amazing day!
Me and Danbo fell out of the 18th, I warned him not to over do it with the alcohol but, as always, he didn’t listen! .. he ended up drunk on Vodka and Bucks Fizz.
Awww! Sam bought me some flowers to say well done! beautiful flowers they were too! Bright pinks and purples, Danbo decided to model with them, so i photographed 🙂
Danbo loves the new Marks and Spencer advert with the XFactor contestants in, he skips around singing ‘when you wish upon a star’, he’s also a great fan of making wishes upon 11:11. Sometimes he even drags me outside to see if we can see any shooting stars!
Ot-oooh .. all this partying has worn Danbo out! he’s not been feeling to well recently! So I made him drink some ikky medicine to see if he could fight off his cold! Fingers crossed for Danbo!
The cold has arrived! .. Danbo is bed bound! No more partying for this little boy!.. I’ve took his toys off him and told him he’s not aloud to move! Rest is on the cards!
Danbo’s been feeling a little better! So as a treat for being good me and Sam took him to the Cinema to see In Time. We made a drastic error! .. ‘In Time showing in Screen 5; .. We, however, sat ourselves in screen 4. Epic fail considering we had to sit through 2 and whatever hours of that dreadful film Twilight, Breaking Dawn Part 1. I think I speak for all three of us when I say ‘Never Again’ .. it has to be the worst film ever. Fact.
Danbo has quite a busy month coming up! .. Ice Skating in London with myself and Sam, Advent Calender opening and Christmas! I look forward to snapping all his cheeky moments! 😀
