Hello (:
So iv not posted a blog post in a while! But a lot of things have happened since!
First of all: ITS MY BIRTHDAY TODAY!!!
Yes, I am 18... Well after 2.30pm I will be 18, but lets not get all technical about it!
So today I woke up at 7.30am because my boyfriend text me to say happy birthday, which is sweet! But why that early? It was my fault though because I knew I would be getting texts and phone calls off my family. My Grandad even text me to say happy birthday!! Which is weird because he has never done that before! At around 8am builders came to fit solar panels onto our roof, if could have been done by now but my Dad forgot our (mine and my twins) birthday today. I had to empty my room yesterday because my room is the only room they need to come in, and they havent even got around to doing the work in here! So ill be having a messy/empty room for a few more days :/
So my Mum and Dad gave us our presents (we didnt give each other presents this morning because we got really excited and gave them at 12am), Nana came around with presents and said happy birthday, then she went to pick up our birthday cake, because thats just her role when its somebodies birthday. My big sister then made bacon butties (which were lovely! And I dont really like bacon, but I wouldnt say no to another one!!). She then gave us some money which couldnt go in the card because they were moon pig ones!!! So yea.
And now im just sat down, waiting for my twin to come back from her boyfriends college, then my big sister is driving us to my college which I left in July because we need one of our tutors to sign our student finance forms so we can get money when we go to university!
Speaking of university, I finally got a letter telling me what building I am going to be in when I first go there (19th september), so me and my  big sister went to see where it was because she had to go in to hand work in so I went a long with her!
Its now less than 2 weeks until me and my amazing boyfriend go on holiday (forgot where im going, but it some where that starts with a T?). I now have £220 so far, with my birthday money added into the funds, I havent seen the rest of my family and im guessing they will give me holiday money. And I get paid tomorrow which means ill have money to go celebrate turning 18 tomorrow and ill have holiday money!
Another thing that has happened is I have finished work :( I hated the job, but I am going to miss the amazing people who work there! My last day was rather remotional, but I managed to keep my tears in... They gave me a box of chcolates and a card, then everybody gave me a hug, which meant my eyes started to fill up but I kept them in! I have managed to add 1 person on facebook, but I cannot find the rest of the people! So im going to go into work on saturday to get my pay slip, then ask people to write their names down because I dont know any of their second names!
Last saturday was my boyfriends 20th birthday, feels weird saying im going out with a 20 year old!!! I spent all my money on him, so iv been living off other peoples money, so iv managed to create a rather big debt!
Oh so the rest of today is going to go as follows:
- Go to the doctors at 5 to get the pill and eye drops, as my eyes are buggered! I am litterally wearing no eye make up today, apart from mascara... So I feel naked!
-Wait for the boyfriend to get here and get more presents!
- Get ready (around 2 hours before we need to leave).
-Meet up with family, and more presents!
-Eat really nice Indian food.
-Get a little bit tipsy.
-Come home, and go bed!

Well, I think I have rambled on for a rather long time!
So see you :D

A Book Review?

Hello (:
So as you can tell from the title of this blog post, this is going to be a book review! Now I know this is a totally different post to my other posts, so if you dont want to read a book review, I dont mind if you dont bother reading! But I just want to talk about this book as I think it is a beautiful book.
So the book I am going to be reviewing is 'A Child Called It' by Dave Pelzer (I could not take a picture of the book as I cannot find my camera, and the pictures on google are too small, so if you want to see what the book looks like, feel free to google it). So I decided to read this book because my boyfriend has been saying for a few weeks it was so desturbing he couldnt read it, so I wanted to read it. I went on to Amazon and orded it of there, which was £1.17. I didnt want to spend too much on it as I thought if I couldnt read it all then I wouldnt mind it only costing £1.17!!
The book came in the post today, and I started reading it about 12pm, and have only just finished it now (I did stop to get ready half way through reading).

So the blurb on the back of the book says "This million-selling, New York Times number one best-seller, is the author's heart rending story of his struggle to live through a childhood beaten and neglected by his alcoholic mother, eventually finding a family who love him", sounds sad right! So after reading this I can tell you this book is about a little boy called David, who lived with his mum, dad and two brothers. He had a lovely life and his mum was like the dream mother! His dad was a firefighter and often had to work long hours, which means he wasnt at home a lot. For some reason his mothers attitude changed, and she started to shout at him and hit him. The abuse got worse and she did awful things like dislocation his arm, burning him, wiping a dirty babies nappy in his face, starving him, making him do house work and stabbing him etc etc. (I dont want to spoil it for you). After many years of the abuse, which his father never stopped, his father finally left the home which means David had nobody who made him feel safe anymore. Then one day when David is at school he goes to see the school nurse, who finally thinks it is time to phone the police and report the abuse, the police then come and free David from his mother. The layout of this book starts with the story of how David became free from abuse, then says about the good times with his mum (before the abuse), then goes on to say about how the abuse started, got worse and how he could have died many different times.

There are some things Dave says in this book and it just makes you feel sick! Like I said above I had to stop reading and get ready, just because one of the things he said became too much and I just couldnt read anymore. I know childabuse isnt good, but this book is really good! Like the way it is lay out and all the detail, its definately one of them books that once you start reading, you just cannot put down! I would say if youre one of them people who gets easily upset by things like this then this book may not be for you.

At the end of the book there is a bit of writing where Dave is talking about the affect childabuse has on the children in their adult lives, it then talks about his son and him standing next to the river her used to love coming to with his parents when he was a child, then he says how he hugs his son, who tells him he loves him.... Which seriously made my eyes fill with tears! There is then a part where is teacher at school talks about the way he saw David when he was a child.

Im not sure what else to say other than I reccomend you buy this book.

Bye bye (: x

I Freaking HATE Drugs!!!

Heres a little rant!
I bloody hate drugs!!! I understand once people get addicted to drugs its really difficult to come off them again, but dont they deserve to suffer for ever taking them! I know thats a bad thing to say seeing as Amy Winehouse has recently lost her life to drugs, but after seeing what could happen why would you still do drugs!!!
I would never try drugs, and it makes me feel sick to think my boyfriend does them when hes with friends!!!
I love my boyfriend to bits, and would hate to see anything happen to him as a result of drugs, he isnt addicted to them and doesnt buy them, but if his friends offered him so he would take them!! I know he wont get addicted to them, but things can go wrong when people play with drugs.
I seriously dont understand why people why people would do them. My boyfriend told me when you smoke weed its just like being drunk and you feel all relaxed, but he would rather just drink alcohol, so I dont understand why he just doesnt drink his pint!
I personally think that anybody found with drugs should be sent to prison for a long time, anybody taking them should be punished and anybody growing them should get sent down for life! I hate drugs so much!!!!!!!!
