Thank you to all those who have sent me Birthday wishes today. Each and every one of them is appreciated.



Today has been lovely. Mum woke me up a bit before 10am with cards, presents and singing Happy Birthday. I opened up my cards first. A couple had money in, which is awesome. And they were all so pretty. I got cards off Mum & Dad; Nan; Jean & Ray; Roger & Barbara; Duncan, Tish, Josephine & Anna; Patrick; Sandra; Julie D; and Ailsa.

The presents I received:
✿ Sack Boy plushy, craft stuff for card making, beauty bits and bobs and some glittery bubble baths from Mum and Dad.
✿ £10 from Nan.
✿ £10 from Jean and Ray.
✿ Shower gel from Julie D.

I got up and got dressed and when the post came I got a card from James & Dawn and one from Dylan & Amy (and some Power Rangers). Dylan decided I would prefer a card with motorbike on to the pretty 'aunty' card Dawn had picked out. I also got two pairs of earrings from them. One pair of pink owls and one pair of pink and blue birds.

My CDs from Amazon also came. Half Birthday present, half gift to self. I had £11.01 of vouchers - £10 from surveys and £1.01 left over from last time I had some. So I used them and Mum paid the remaining £4.05. So now I'm the proud owner of Fozzy's Sin and Bones and Remains Alive/Chasing the Grail. Sin and Bones is amazing. Chasing the Grail was okay, but I much prefer Sin and Bones.

I walked over to Nan's with Lady which was lovely, and then once we got home I cleaned out the litter trays. Such an exciting life I lead!

Mum cooked a Chinese take-away (without the take-away). She bought a pack of starters from Iceland and cooked the main courses from scratch. And she baked me a lovely carrot and courgette cake. Feeling very full and very happy now.

Birthday fairies didn't manage to bring me Misha Collins or David Tennant but never mind - there's always next year!

So... what else has been going on in my life lately? Supernatural!! Yep. I finally caught the SPN like 7 years too late and went from a SPN virgin to finishing the whole thing in just over a month. I have a new obsession and it's beautiful. I can't wait for the next series!

In other news? )

I'm not sure how many people still read this, but I hope everyone is safe and well, and I'll make more of an effort to keep in touch. I love you all!

Eventful couple of days! I know, shock horror. Well, I say eventful, but what I really mean is stuff happened. First of all, my signed postcard from David Tennant arrived after three and a half months of daily posybox watching.



It's so shiny, I love it. Well worth the wait.

Yesterday I went into work to start getting my cleaning done for next week. Seriously, we're supposed to do two hours apart from in the summer holidays where we do a special clean, putting in an extra 20 hours. I was there for 4 hours and had barely made any progress. And I broke the George wet vacuum... oops. The wet head cracked in half...

Then last night, my money from Opinion Bar finally cleared, so I combined it with my My Survey voucher for Amazon and bought myself Mad Dogs Series 1 & 2 boxset, and used the rest of the money left over to get a year's worth of extra userpics for my Campbell journal.

The day went majorly downhill after that, I was sat in bed on the laptop as usual when my nose started to bleed. Now, I'm so stranger to nosebleeds, I have one every few months. But usually they're from one nostril and stop within 5-10 minutes. Last night, I was bleeding for a good 30 minutes, maybe more, and it was from both nostrils. I had to shout for my mum because it was so bad. Normally I deal with them myself because she isn't so good at handling the clotted blood. Our sink looked like someone had dumped a packet of raw liver in it. She called 111 just because it was so thick and had been bleeding so long. The lady advised going to A&E and said if I didn't go and it started again to call 999 straight away. I didn't fancy spending a night waiting around at the hospital so I just washed up and went to bed with a cup of tea.

Mum made me go to the doctor's this morning though. He checked my blood pressure which was raised slightly. He said he didn't want to treat based on one reading though, so I have to go back in a month to have it checked again. He also said my nasal septum was rather red and inflammed so gave me some cream I've had before to calm the inflammation. Must be worse than before though since last time I had to use it once before bed and this time I have to use it four times a day.

Once I got home, I had a bite to eat then headed back to work. Another 3 and a half hours and it's about done. What's not done now will be left until Monday night when we go back properly.

So yes, that was my eventfulness. Right, back to my replay of FFX now. Much fangirling of Auron is needed! Oh how I miss my icons!

First and foremost, the good news. We picked up Lady on Saturday. She pooped in the car like two minutes after we started the journey home, so we had to stop and clean that up, then again when we were almost home, so as soon as she had examined the front lawn, and her bed area, the next step was to plonk her in the sink and wash her feet and tummy.

She's absolutely beautiful. I'll upload the pictures once I have a chance to get them off of the camera. She's settling in really well. She was very clingy when we first got her home, the only place she would settle was on your chest and neck, but she's quite happy to lay near you and sleep now. The only time she gets upset is bedtime because until she's housetrained she has to sleep in the kitchen and the breeder had had her sleeping in her bedroom by the fire.

The cats are probably moving into their cattery today. They went in it yesterday for an hour or so and meowed a lot, but I'm sure once they get in with their own beds and their own litter trays and get used to it, they'll be fine.

Watched the first episode of Single Father last night. It was really good. David Tennant is just an amazing actor. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series. I finished watching the Doctor Who Series 4 boxset on Friday, and once again Journey's End had me sobbing. Donna's fate is just so heartbreakingly sad. Every time I watch it I cry.

The bad news. My desktop computer has died. I think it's the hard drive, but until Dad looks at it for me, I'm not really sure. I have the laptop out to tide me over, but it's just so slow. So, still about just slower than usual!
