    I really should stop bargin hunting in b&m but i cant help it lol. B&M have an app where if you scan some of their things they come up cheaper and will do on the til aswell.  
    So i scanned a teddy bear fitted sheet thats for King pink. Cause i love this colour. And it shows £5 so im like ong. I need it 😂i have a single bed 😂 I've still brought it anyway. But it's okay I'll make it work haha I'll cut it lol. If not then two pillow cases for £5 is good. 




    Then this is what the app said when I scanned the barcode says 



    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be. The difference between you and your experiences are who you choose to be, despite everything that could have turned you cold and unkind.You are the good the world needs and the best of us.” ~ Kirsten Corley

    My heart melted into a puddle today (not literally but something adorable happened.) I was on the bus and I saw a little toddler sitting in a buggy near where I was. We played peekaboo. He was covering his face with his magazine and then uncovering it. I did the same but with my hands.  We were in fits of laughter.

    Yesterday someone in the shop asked if me and my sister are twins. And then we saiid yeah And he said " i thought i was seeing double"
     it is proper weird cause some people can tell we are twin striaght away. Yet we don't even have the same hair colour. 
    It is good news because my sister is so pretty so it's always a compliment cause j think i look ugly compared to her

    @Shaunie awww that's cute!

    My twin sister and I are non identical but we used to look a lot like each other when we were small. I do wish that we looked a tiny bit more similar but it's always funny to see people's reaction when I tell them. Most of time I forget that I'm a twin lol

    Are you and your sister identical?

    Lol same!  Do you not look a like at all now? We are non identical too so always makes it even weird when people think we are identical. But then i don’t know if its cause we see each other everyday you see every different detail and when people just like first see you they see just the sinilar parts

    I got dressed and went outside for literally the first time in almost two months. Since early February I've just been sitting inside all day in my nightgown. I struggle with motivating myself to do anything because I don't have any interest or enjoyment, or see any purpose, and this year I've been really anxious about my health and have irrational fears that activity will aggravate the symptoms I'm worried about - so when I got a cold last month I just lost all habit I still had. And today's the first day I've changed into day clothes and sat outside instead of the house for a little while.

    I didn't just randomly summon the will though, I only did it because my gran wanted me to play a game in the garden with her and I didn't want to disappoint her :joy:

    I managed to choreograph a dance solo without any help (except with some inspiration from the senior dance squad at the performing arts thing I went to before it had to temporarily close.) And I did the pirouette part without falling or feeling dizzy whilst showing my dad.

    Here is the song that I am doing a dance to:

    It is all just for fun because of not being able to go out anywhere except to the shops and to school  (on school days.)

    Cacti and succulents are by far the easiest plants to keep in my experience! Althoguh I managed to kill a couple of cacti after I repotted them, apparently quite badly...

    Just got back from a much needed week off and now feeling nice and recharged. :)
