Snake-NOT a worm!

Hello…remember me? I don’t want to count how many days it’s been since my last post but I have my reasons! Like me and my family have moved into our new house five nights ago. We didn’t have T.V or hot water for a day or two, and still don’t have WiFi. I’m at a friend’s house now, leaching off their internet.

Anyway-the new house. We still haven’t settled properly because we have no proper furniture yet (except for beds). We don’t even have chairs!! We’ve had to use fold-up camping chairs and a camping table for replacements. We’re camping in our own home. Hmp. 😦

My room still isn’t very decorated yet but I have big plans for it! It’s in a weird L shape (suitable for my name….), so I’m going to have a high bed against one wall, a desk with a computer and a spinny chair, behind that an electric drum kit, then opposite my bed I’ll have a big green, cosy sofa, and by the door I’ll have my chest of draws and a massive bookcase. 🙂

We’ll also put shelves up on the walls as well so my Voo-Doos can go on display, I’ll have all my posters and drawings on the walls (even on the ceiling if I run out of room!) and the walls will be a light-ish blue with one dark blue wall with silver stars on it. I’m also hoping to buy a big teacher’s whiteboard to fix onto one wall so I can do plenty of drawings. 😀

And unlike my old room my windows have window-sills, and I’ve put my handmade rockets, dragons and Venus-flytraps on there. I also have a really nice view of the garden as well. It has three sheds, two at the front of the garden (one very dark and cobwebby, the other bright and a total WRECK!) and a big white one that looks like a tiny version of a house. The only problem is that its locked….

However, our garden is teeming with wildlife! There are no frogs like in my last house (I even did a post about them), but there are dragon-flies flying around and earlier I even saw a SNAKE!!

He (or she…whatever) was quite small and a sludgy greyish colour (so maybe he wasn’t a grass snake), and was found hiding under the compost bin. And NO-he wasn’t a worm, he was over twice as long as a worm and we saw his tong flick out lots. He also slithered, he didn’t wiggle away under a fence into next door’s garden. Lets hope he wasn’t poisonous! 😀

I have returned….

I’m back! How are you? I was camping in Wales with my family and some of their friends in a really cool campsite with a massive lake in the middle, with a forest surrounding it. It was great fun exploring and Nathan really enjoyed herself to. 🙂

Oh and I am sorry for not doing many posts this summer. I’m going away so much camping or whatever, there’s either no WiFi or no time to blog. I’ll keep trying, but when I move it’ll take a while to set the internet up as well so there might not be many posts then as well. 😦

Anyway, I haven’t mentioned this before, but I have an obsession with notebooks. I love them, and all throughout when I was little I would buy loads of them and I would fill them with weird drawings, odd stories and disturbing diaries. I had hundreds (yeah-seriously, well maybe just a hundred) notebooks filled with them. And I would always be buying more. But with The Move coming up, I needed to throw away tons of my belongings/junk. Including my mountain of notebooks.

I could still save lots of them, but also lots had to go. But surprisingly is wasn’t much of a problem, as lots of the notebooks had when I was young was filled with rubbish anyway. But-of course-my mum had to save a few of them. The ones with the embarrassing stories I never finished writing, or the ones with crazy looking drawings in them!

There’s still a lot more preparing to do before the move, and even though I’ve done quite a bit in my room, there’s still more horrors waiting for me to be found….

Thank you for reading! 🙂

Happy Easter!

Okay… its been a while.

OKAY… its been a week.

But I hate leaving my blog for too long, so it’s not like I’ve been abandoning it. And I have my reasons!

For the past few days I’ve been at a Camper van festival, and as it is hosted in a few giant fields, of course, no signal. So, no blog. Anyway, I go there every year, and I always come back with arm full of nick-nacks I’ve brought from the many, many stalls. This year I came back with:

4 Voo-Doo dolls,

A Voo-Doo badge (see the theme??),

A super-cool skull hat, and…

A toy dog. (Hey-I’m never too old for toy dogs!)

So anyway, I hope your all enjoying your massive, unhealthy, disgustingly-gooey, revolting chocolate eggs. As you’ve probably guessed, I’m not a fan of chocolate. But I can still stuff my face full of biscuits. Furthermore… happy Easter! 😀
