    The year 11's at school because they are so caring and understanding. ☺
    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.

    I've been following Mrs Hinch on Instagram for a while now and I really enjoy her stories! She's really funny and posts videos of cleaning! It makes me want to clean too haa! Does anyone else follow her? Here's a link to her Instagram if anyone wants to check her out :) 
    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 ❤

    Finding such a cute video of 8 year old me. I found it on my mums phone and she sent it to me on WhatsApp. Why was I so cute?  :p

    Being on this training course. It's more intense than I imagine but very insightful and like to work my brain
    I've learnt two people can look at the exact same thing and see something completly different.

    Today I am grateful that I get a bank holiday off work, to spend time with family, :heart: I usually end up working bank holidays, but today I am off, so I'm super happy. :heart:


    " And everywhere I am, there you'll be, your love made me make it through, oh I owe so much to you "
    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    It probably sounds stupid - but I'm grateful that Ruby didn't show any signs of something being wrong while I was spending time with her tonight (because last night I was concerned. Still am paranoid).

    I'm also grateful that my hair's growing out. Having longer hair feels great to me lol, and I'm hoping I'll be a tiny bit more confident with my appearance once it's finally even and my stupid fringe is non-existent :)

    I'm grateful that tea exists,  (especially Yorkshire tea) and Capri sun,  always put a smile on my face when I'm sipping away on one of them! :)

    My cat trying to tell me to do some more physio. She loves me so much and doesn't want anything bad to happen to her human. At least something in this world cares about me and wants me alive and happy.

    I get a break from my mum again but not overnight. Just a few hours. I am going go karting with 2 of my friends, their parents, my friends aunts and my mum but my mum is going to be in a different car so I don't get stressed (no offence to my mum but it is just the fact that she moans at every song I put on if it isn't ABBA or Baby Shark.) I actually like music other than that like Pink, Melanie Martinez, Taylor Swift, Chubby Checker, Bill Haley, Little Mix, Sam Smith, the songs @Aife suggested, Rachel Platten, Sara Bareilles and even more. 

    At least my mum is only a phone call away if either of us feel lonely or just bored of the other persons music.

    I'm grateful today for seeing a teen  I use to work with.. eating disorder, drugs etc. She's completely turned her life around. I'm grateful for the services that support young people enough to encourage life changing.

    the shits and bad stomach pain.

    Vitalite! I would never be able to have sandwiches without it- spread free sandwiches are disgusting (in my opinion) but I cannot have normal butter as it gives me
