    not me but it's a super proud moment so had to share :)

    my nephew is 6 and he's been going through his toys this month ready for Santie bringing new ones and we've been selling the ones he doesn't want. we were out this morning and there's a Christmas tree with kids first names/ages on it and you can pick a name and buy a kid a toy for Christmas (kids in care/family's that are struggling) he wanted to know what it was so I explained the best I could so with the money he's raised from selling his toys he's decided to buy 3 kids a new toy for Christmas, and he said when he see's Santie tomorrow he's going to ask him to be extra kind to the kids on the tree :) my heart melted a bit haha but super proud of him.

    I managed to take my antibiotics without throwing up. 
    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 had a relatively functional day on less than six hours sleep. My mind usually starts rebelling if I get less than eight, so I'm quite impressed with myself.
    this too shall pass

    on holiday until the end of September

    Love a good bargain @Shaunie ! Haha :)

    That's great Mike!  I'm running on less than 8 at the moment but doing really good :)

    @Millie2787 That's positive to hear, I know it can be hard and even scary but it almost always works out fine and those rare ones who want to be mean just aren't worth your time Xo

    I personally am quite proud that I managed to get up this morning for college despite my coach getting home late last night and still feeling the effects of travel sickness. It was my favorite driver for my last coach so he let me off at wadebridge to throw up 😂😂

    I rang into work to ask for the Saturday off as going to funeral on Friday. I did want to ask while I was at work but I didn’t get the time to and I didn’t know how to or where to. But they said Is fine & rang up for my sister too for compassionate leave, and I think I sounded proper anxious cause I was lol, but finally rang up & glad done it
