    Took a long time to do but my fav neckless I tangled 2 hours after I got it nearly 6 years ago, I can finally wear it. 

    I might be a carer but doing this has helped me get some time to untangle my life in terms of my neckless. 
    Some people think i am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking

    Such a lovely necklace @Abigail! It takes me so long to untangle them when this happens! Well done for fixing it :) 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    I am 1 month hospital free!  =)  also after a difficult month with flying to London, my friends death and my stalker being a pain, for the first time since last June I've managed a full month at work! No days off for mental health :) looking forward to a proper wage this month  B)  <3 
    Well done Bubbles! Really great to hear you had a good time at the awards in London <3

    Managed to get my sister a birthday present for a reeeeeeeeally good price today, wanted to get a bottle of perfume for her so I went to superdrug and they were selling the one I was looking at for £20 for 100ml! Huge saving so guess what? I got one for her and one for myself! We've all gotta treat ourselves occasionally don't we?

    Had an absolutely awesome day today. This is Harvey, one of the cats from a cat cafe I went to. 
    So salaam worthy friend. Come back soon! That's the end.  Till another Arabian night! A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view. No one to tell us no, or where to go, or say we're only dreaming. A whole new world, with new horizons to pursue. I'll chase them anywhere, there's time to spare. Let me share this whole new world with you. A whole new world, that's where I'll be.

    Nothing exciting here - only that my mom's neighbour has met Chester Charles Bennington!!!!!! :D Seriously not joking!! My mom seems to be about to befriend or even date a guy who's met my role model. I'm going to have a heart attack lol. AAAAHHHHH.

    Lol my friend is so caring and funny. Let me just share part of our recent conversation. Try not to laugh. No referring us for mental health checks. 😂😉

    Friend: Are you ok?

    Me: Not really. Elbow still hurts. I know what you'll say. So let me say it for you. GET THE HELL TO HOSPITAL MOO MOO. There you go

    Friend: COULDN'T HAVE SAID IT BETTER MYSELF

    Me: Lol

    Friend: Now get yo butt to da hospital 

    Me: How do I ask my mum to take me without scaring her though? I can't trust my dad to drive without killing me. His driving is awful. I could ring my sister.

    Friend: Just tell her your elbow got worse. Ok~?

    Me: She doesn't know I hurt it at all though.

    Friend: Just tell her or you could end up hurting yourself more.

    Me: Ok. If I forget I'll definitely tell her tomorrow. I promise.

    Friend: Ok.

    Me: I once left a broken toe for the whole weekend. So I'm sure an injured elbow can last a few more hours.

    Friend: 😳 HOW

    Me: We were waiting to see how bad the swelling was before making the decision of whether to go to urgent care.

    Friend: AND NO GO TO YOUT MUM AND TELL HER YOUNG MISSY OR I WIL CHASE YOU WITH MY CHANCLA. A.k.a shoe.

    Me: Ahhh heck. Lol. Ok ok. 

    Friend: 😊thank you

    Don't worry about the threat. My friend was only joking. And it is true that I left a broken toe all weekend. But don't worry because it is fully healed now.

    It feels so nice to just put your head out of a window at this time(late ish). It feels so still and freash and get all the nice freash air without putting whole body out there to feel the cold. And is dark and no one out. And i think the air is actually different when not durning the day - because less car and polution (tho im not too sure could of just made that up) the air does feel different. And in the early morning and quite nice. Makes me more mindful.

    My sisters tone of voice changed. 

    She said she is really happy for me and am doing really good. and that if I want to take weekends off I should because it's best opportunity to do my best for my assessments. V cute she even said she can help with my assissgnents if need. Lol
