This post was inspired by The King Crew with some fantastic blogging prompts.
Time Capsule – Create a time capsule post about yourself. Current favorites, what’s going on in the world and in your life, things that are special to you, favorite item of clothing, etc. Then set a reminder to re-read it in a year!
I’m going to do a slight variation on this prompt. A bit of a past and present About Me style post. Hope you enjoy a few little sneak glimpses in my life and history.
Old Pictures of Me
A few years ago I found a stash of old family photos at my nans. They were all taken with the old film cameras and were in some old family albums. It was such a treasure trove and I wanted to share a few of my finds with you all 🙂 They’ve gone from being hidden in a draw to being hidden on my computer.
In July 2012, my husband and I tied the knot. It was such a fun day, surrounded by family and friends. Then it was followed by 2 amazing weeks in Disney in Florida.
Holiday Snaps – Portugal May 2014
Last year my husband and I went to Portual for a week. We had a fab deal for about £500 all inclusive including flights and 4* hotel. Last minute deals were a definite best friend of mine last year.
I was a great week away, really warm and some amazing memories. It was a great chance to relax by the pool, go exploring and soak up some much needed rays.
Now – September 2015
Music: Here a link to a few videos of my favourite songs on Youtube.
- Black Horse and a Cherry Tree – K T Tunstall
- I initially heard this song in my teens and I’ve loved it since/
- Her Morning Elegance – Owen Lavie
- This was another song I heard in my teens. It still makes me feel happy every time I hear it.
- Puttin on the Ritz – Robbie Williams
- I heard this song for the first time on Strictly the other year. I don’t usually watch it. But I ended up buying his album ‘swing both ways’ and I love it. Just so different to the style of music I usually listen too.
Colour: Red. I’ve got a love for strong colours.
Person: My husband Dan. He’s my best friend as well.
What’s going on in the world and in your life?
So just brought my first home with my husband last month. Which is a really exciting development for us. We’ve spend the last month busily decorating the inside of it and our sofa’s are finally coming tomorrow. I’m so bored of sitting on hard chairs! Most of the decoration is done now and we are so close to being able to move the last of our stuff in.
Things that are special to you?
My knitting needles. Sad I know. But I thought I’d lost them last week and I literally pulled the house apart looking for them.
My gerbils (also known as my babies) are also pretty damn special to me too. They’re super cute and really friendly. But them make such a mess.
So that’s a little more about me. Would love for you to post links to your blog below if you do a similar post. Thanks for The King Krew for the inspiration for the post.
I’m off to carry on knitting my christmas knitting. I have a scarf on the go at the moment. One of a few on the gift list.
