Its amazing how when you stop and look back on your life, there are SO many memories that have been forgotten. The people in your lives who used to make you laugh and cry are now a distant memory. Its funny, even with todays technology and ways of keeping in touch, we just don't. We forget. We choose to forget I think. Possibly because that was a better time in life, or a time we'd like to go back to. Who knows. Facebook is a great example of seeing people you forget about. People who you might have known since you were 5, or people you met in High School or University. School is a big part of life and so many things happen during that time. 20 years of schooling, thats a lot of memories! Privacy has become a modern invention. When towns were so small everyone knew everyones business. Now as much as we would like to be 'private' on facebook, how can you really ask for that when you put your life out on the world wide web. As it might be a modern thing, its quickly becoming a thing of the past. We throw our thoughts, memories, photos out there for our 'friends' to see. But how many of those 'friends' are people you would actually call up and say, Hey, lets hang out today. 10%. Funny eh?

I wish I could have taken a picture of every person I've ever met in life, I think it would be pretty neat.  Maybe thats what I'll start doing :) In 50 years I wonder who I would still remember and who I will never forget. 

I saw this really neat video somewhere on the world wide web, when I find it I will post it. I can't remember exactly what the phrase was, but it was something along the lines of: BEFORE I DIE I WILL....
and someone painted a chalk wall and wrote this at the top. He made spaces for everyone to fill in what they want to do at the end of their life. It was very interesting and I wish I could share it. 
I want to see the world before my time is up. There is something about travelling that just does me in. There are soo many wonderful and magnificent things to see in this world and I can't wait to see them all.

I don't even know how to begin this. First off, oh man I know its been ages since my last post! Forgive me, lifes been getting busy as you may have hinted at from the title. It's been almost a month! eek!

Well, Mike's company is just about to fly! I am off on half term, a lovely 2 week holiday (one of my 13 weeks of total vacation a year)!! BUT being the great and supportive girlfriend that I am (insert smirk) I am working for them over my holiday. TODAY we got our landing page up! CHECK IT OUT HOMIES! 


Don't forget to LIKE! us on facebook!   

Now, enough of work talk because that is ALL anyone does around here. 

We've been lucky to have been having some nice summer-ish weather here in bham. Days where I don't have to wear a winter coat. My toes actually saw some sunlight and felt some breeze! It was amazing! We spent a weekend in the park just lazying about (well I did... Mike and Bobby kicked around a football...aka soccer ball). All the summer outfits I've been buying are now getting some use! 

A few weeks back we visited London for a bit of business and a bit of pleasure.... SHOPPING! It was great! There was a fashion show going on while we were there. Absolutely MASSIVE place! There is a special section that I hope to sooner than later be able to shop in.... Prada, Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, Burberry, Tiffanys, De Beers... and the list goes on. So Fab. I did pick up a few things from stores we do not have in bham such as Berksha (also fab) and something else lol. We got a free ride in and took the train home. It was a lovely day. OHH and they also had a place that makes the BEST freaking Gelato in the ENTIRE WORLD! ca'puccino has the BEST GELATO EVER! Chocolate in particular! SO AMAZING! I was a food whore that day lol. 

We celebrated Canadian Night last week with some Canadian (and Australian) friends! It was a great time! My first time eating smores with peanut butter inside! DEEEELISH! Why this heavenly taste hasn't been in my life is beyond me. 

OHHHHH and we had a visitor (that wasn't a mouse)!!! One of my best mates Ainsley came down a few weeks ago from York for a visit! It was smashing! Hit up the pubs like it was 1999, painted our very own ceramic plates, chilled out in the sunlight, got an up and close tour at the BBC from SonnyJi and went shopping of course! All these great events were captured in photos of course and can be found on our gallery! 

It's been such a good fresh of air to not be in a school for a while! But one awesome thing about supplying just before holidays is that I usually do rubbish things! Like for this half term on the friday we made easter cards, watched the easter parade in the school, coloured some easter pictures lol. fab. 

Well, all for now... as mike and Sonny Ji would say... "Everything's Lobbly Jobbly" LOL
