Amazing song and video to match!!! The Choreography is nothing short of beautiful and very typically Pink!!

Knockagh Monument


A few Sunday's back the weather was beautiful so mum, dad and I decided that it was perfect to take a trip up to Knockagh Monument to see what sort of pictures I could get over the Lough and of the Monument itself.

I remember the last time that I was up there with mum and dad and I thought that I was going to drop off the hill and keep rolling and not stop, luckily that was not the case.

On the way home I got Dad to stop at some of the fields so that I could meet a few new friends who even posed for me!

Love & Hurt

“If someone hurts you, betrays you,or breaks your heart, forgive them, for they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. 

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionallynot only because they love you, but because in a way, they are teaching you to love and how to open your heart and eyes to things.”

Giant's Causeway

I was off work for a few days over my birthday and went on a road trip with my mum and dad to the Giant's Causeway!! Wasn't very impressed with the new 'Visitor's Centre' , they wanted £8.50 per person to walk through it and if you didn't you couldn't even park on site and I wasn't even allowed to use the bathrooms, I had to go outside and use other ones!!!

Mum, Dad and I walked 'over' the Visitor's Centre for 'free' and still got to see the amazing landmark that it Giant's Causeway!!!!!!

Do You Believe . . .

"I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. but i was beginning to believe that very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together."

Pin Point The Day

Can you pinpoint the exact day you started falling for someone??

You know when you are dating a guy or girl (whoever is reading ) and you are thinking that you don't know yet and then before you know it you can't stop thinking about that person, you want to spend every minute of every day with them, when you are with them you cannot keep your hands off them, to you they are  amazing in every way and you are thinking to yourself 'I'm so lucky'

Well my date was today last year, October 15th 2012.

Less than a month after dating Andrew I felt this way and felt like I was the luckiest girl on earth!

Miss you always hon

“To be in love is like jumping off a cliff with no intent of looking down at the bottom. You don’t care if it’s going to hurt like hell when you crash. All you care about is that just for that short period of time… you felt like you could fly.”

I'm Getting One!!!!

For the past few weeks I have been working on my mum and dad about getting a dog and I finally had a breakthrough 2 weeks ago.  They said I can and I have decided on one of these little cuties!!! I even have a name picked out if I get a boy!! 

Last night my sister called me and told me to get onto Gumtree as there is a little Beagle puppy 'Free to a good home' which could not have been better! Unfortunately he was gone and I was gutted!! I am now on a mission and my thinking is wait until around Christmas and check the Animal Sanctuaries for rescue puppies and if nothing after Christmas then I will pay for one!!!

Wish me luck!
