So, A little while ago I got into watching Bones a great American TV series, bear with me. For those that have yet to see this programme, it centres around the Jeffersonian Institute. A team of six mainly, tries and succeeds in finding out the cause of death from bones hense the name. Temperance Brennan  (an anthropologist) and Seeley Booth (an FBI special agent) turn up to the scene of, I can’t really say a crime, a place where there are bones. It might have been a body was moved there, trapped/burned or murdered there. Their job is to find out who they were, etc, etc, etc… Very gripping stuff and seeing that I have seen many episodes from Series 7 & 8,  I know what is going to happen in their personal lives, I just wanted to see how they got there.

So Scandal….OMG, LOVE IT with a passion.

I was gripped from the first minute of the 1st episode. Not like Breaking Bad which I don’t like at all. People have said stick at it, it’ll get good in series 2 but I can’t be bothered with all that nonsense. Why waste my time on getting through a series that I am bored with. Anyway, back to Scandal. Based around Olivia Pope. A fixer. You kill someone, she can fix it. You’re a high powered man or woman and you need to give a good image to the press, she can fix it. Someone you love has gone missing she can fix it BUT her main person she (used to) fixes is the President of the United States, Fitzgerald “Fitz” Grant. Hot totty that Olivia tries and fails to stay away from. The have MAD burning, can’t stay away from each other chemistry.

Fans now await series 5, can’t spoil the end of series 4 if you have yet to see it but it is BRILLIANT.

Last year I happened upon a series, entitled “My Mad Fat Diary”. Based on the book written by Rae Earl.                                                                                                                                                             A real life diary written by an overweight, music mad, boyfriend crazy 16 year old girl in the 90’s, a great musical decade. One of my fav’s actually. The decade I discovered Indie/rock and alternative.  Anyway this diary is of her accounts going through life with a mental illness, her mother being married to a Moroccan and her fit totty boyfriend Finn.

Colour Run

Colour Run – July 29th 2015

So why had I decided to do this colour run? Well, for one, I thought it was on a Saturday and 2, I thought it would be a lot of fun, with a bunch of mates and would be mates. Angelique made a whatapp group and the messages started. Message back and forth about when we should be meeting up, what we were wearing, and just random girls stuff.

I suggested 2 weeks before the run to meet up for drinks to discuss running strategies, outfits etc. It just ending up beind a boozy early evening in the beer garden & Night inside. I didn’t mind as one outfit mentioned took my fancy-TUTUS

.Tutu and goggles

Although excited for the following week, I was none the wiser as to where it was, what some of the other girls looked like, what time we were running and some of the finer details.

I eventually got this info from my Angel and my mind was at rest.

On Saturday I pimped 4 pairs of goggles and decided which 2 of the seven tutus that I had received we’d need! Ordering panic! I babysat my Nephews that evening.

Sunday rolls around and after some more messaging in the morning- I got up, had a shower ate some breakfast, done some general running around the house and was picked up at 10.30.

We met up with another Sam, got our T-shirts and waited for the other to arrive.

We were due to have our warm up at 12.30, which was basically a short Zumba class. but before that could happen we had to get down, low and when the beat dropped…it went a bit crazy. Alot of people had paint sachetsthat they just threw in the air ad you get covered. It was all the pre run party to get you in the mood.

Jumping with paint

Jumping with paint

We all (14 of us) made our way to the start, where you could see the obstacles from and waited then another 20 minutes before we actually was went. The first obstacle just a wooded upright panel with foot holds on it. Then we got sprayed with paint. Now this was good paint as it was just coloured cornflour which doesn’t stain clothes or hair.

So, not to go into boring detail, various inflatable obstacles were tackled that we had to either crawl through, under, over or push through and eventually we all finished. We slid down a giant slide and walked through some foam. Collected a  pack of colour paint, joined the end party and threw it and danced again.

SO, that was my colour run experience. xx

 

 

Quilt Quest

In the New Year of 2014 a new magazine came out. Now being VERY new to sewing (through the soft furnishing course) I thought this would be a good thing to do.

 

Now, July 2015, I am about 1 year behind. I have embroided 27 squares- I should have done about 85 by now – Any way
