Recap of the past few weeks

Sorry for not posting in a while but I have been caught up in life, the school holidays were great, it was nice to just relax and forget about thing for a while (like blog posting! Sorry again!) and then I caught up in going back to school and now my mums away till monday which means I have to do all the cooking and dishes and whatever else she does (like waking us up in the morning, lets just say the alarm didn't go off and all of us work half an hour later than we were supposed to have woken up!).  Anyway to update you are on my life here are ten things that have happened in the past 3 weeks :)
  1. I (or more like my family) have a new addition to the family, she is small, cute,fluffly and meows . . . we have a kitten (so in total thats 4 cats now if you are keeping count), she is the cutest most cheekiest thing in the world. We all love her, I will post a pic when I can get my mum's camera. Her name is Chickpea if your wondering =^.^=
  2. I have gotten hooked on the Glee Project those guys are just so talented! I can't wait to see who wins I love Cameron, so I really want him to win :)
  3. I have gone back to school, this will be my last full term of school, so I am kinda sad about that.
  4. I have realised how much time flys! I mean it seems like only yesterday (when it really was 2 months ago) I was organising friends coming over to dinner and now in a few days they will be coming! Here I am thinking I have heaps of time to work out a menu and everything and now I dont!
  5. Its been raining heaps! Which is nice, we need the rain so bad at the moment we have had such a dry past few years so its nice to have some rain.
  6. I have started doing exercises to flatten my tummy and they are working! I aim to do them every night but it seems to be every 2nd night since school has gone back. My jeans which fitted me fine at the beginning of winter, I now have to wear a belt with, but I'm not complaining :)
  7. I have gotten back into reading, I have been re reading a few books, but also a few new ones. Though I always read, sometimes I do it cause it habit, but I have found a few books that I am enjoying to read which is nice.
  8. I have been making lots of desserts, and experimenting with a few of them. My favourite one is a caramel tart recipe with I will try and post soon, it is sooo good :)
  9. I have been keeping on top of all my school work and passing every class, I thought I would fail an english essay as I couldn't think straight (no one could in my class that day) and I got 53% which is bad but its a pass.
  10. I went down south for a few days which was nice, I mean we got rained on, but apart from that, it wasn't too bad

Book Review: The Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale

Ok so currently I am meant to be taking it easy which means no running around or walking much cause of the toe situation so I have decided to do a book review which I haven't done for alooooong time :)

The Book of a Thousand Days by Shannon Hale (Bloomsbury Publishing PLC)
Genre: Fantasy but with a bit of romance and adventure thrown in.
Age targeted at: My sister who is (almost) 13 loves it and so did my mum and me (aged almost 17), but I think as young as a 10 year old would so it. So ages 10 years plus.
This is a great read, its written in a fairytale manner but different. A princess is locked in a tower with her mucker (forrest person) maid for 7 years as she refuses to marry whom her father chose for her (kinda extreme when you think about it). The tower has no light so they have no way of telling whether it is day or not, then one day a prince comes and promises that he will break them out of the tower which of course doesn't happen, mean while the princess orders her maid to pretend to be her, which means the prince thinks the maid is the princess and of course they fall in love, even though they can't be together. The book has quite a few twists and turns and doesn't end quite like you would think it should. Once you start this book you cannot put it down! I rate this 5 stars ***** out of 5 *****

A random night post

So its 9.16 at night and I am sitting at the computer typing a blog post just for the sake of it. I honestly don't know why maybe cos theres too many thoughts swirling through my head?! This saturday I am getting my big left toe operated on, because its ingrown, I blame genectics my grandfather had them and he pasted them onto to my mother who in turn pasted them onto me and my sisters. So basically because of this, I have to put my foot up for 24 hours once the surgery has been done and then can't wear (enclosed) shoes for 2 weeks and to top it all off its the middle of winter has been a grand total of 15 degrees max the whole week, honestly I will be happy once its over. But hey I am on holidays as of this afternoon which means no school for 2 weeks (and 2 days not that I care), I am just looking forward to relaxing and enjoying myself, tomorrow I get to see my best friend Gem which will be great, then on tuesday its shopping (hopefully my toe isn't too sore!) and next friday we get to go away for a weekend yay! The holidays are looking great and I am more than ready for a relaxing 2 weeks. I am hoping this will give me more time to post so check back here often :)
