2018 Round Up


Well its the 31st December, last day of 2018!! Hours away from the start of 2019!Β  How can it be? Its come round so quick, 2018 has flown by and 2018 has been up and down and not the greatest for me personally…

I would say out of the 12 months of 2018, 8 of them have been proper shitty. My mum admitted herself into hospital in March and was there till May, after a number of chest infections, blood tests, weight loss, falls, oxygen levels.Β  She was discharged in May, but as she wasn’t able to go back Home we had to make the decision that mum needed to go to a home, which she didn’t want to but she knew it was the right thing as she was in no way able to go home and look after herself even with carers in 4/5 times a day.Β  From May till 6th December mum again was in and out of hospital with a number of chest infections, decreasing oxygen levels and another fall.Β  Her health was slowly detreating and get worse, especially her oxygen levels, there was one thing about my mum is that she was a fighter and she certainly fought for the 9 months from March.

Mum ended her battle with he illness at 11:30am on 6th December 2018, as much I didn’t have the best relationship with my mum over the years but she was still my mum and I struggled the last 9 months with her illness and how poorly she was.Β  It hit me hard when I got the call to say she has past, but I’m still grieving now in my own way.Β  So its been a pretty shit end to 2018, but mum isn’t in anymore pain and is at peace.

Lots of plans & changes to come in 2019, have the Spice Girls Concert with a night in London to look forward to in June, a few draft plans to confirm and to get some travel booked in along the way…

Really am looking forward to 2019 to see what it has in store for me, last year in my 30s for The Boy and I! So planning what to do for our 40th’s will be on the cards also.. Thinking West Coast of America

Hope you all have a F A B U L O U S Plans!

Happy New Year

Lots of Love





The Last Chapter; Chapter 12

‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’


I’m really hoping to spend Christmas with The Boy this year up in Liverpool, but still nothing set in stone yet which is slightly annoying as I like to know what I’m doing and he is the opposite and goes with the flow and doesn’t make plans πŸ™„.

I really want to go to a Christmas market or an afternoon of Christmas drinks to try and up my spirits, I need to look for a tree as well as I’ve been buying some decorations but no where to put them December

I’m not really feeling Christmassy πŸŽ…πŸ»πŸŽ„ at the min, but I’m trying!

I’ve wrote some Christmas cards, watched some Christmas films on Netflix and will be wrapping some presents at some point as I’ll need to post some..

What festive fun and antics are you all up too?? Let me know in the comments πŸŽ„πŸ₯‚πŸ₯³. Hope you all have a great crimbo and a great festive season βœ¨πŸŽ…πŸ»πŸŽ„πŸ₯‚πŸŽπŸ€ΆπŸΌβœ¨

Lots of Love

5 Years

It’s Cursed With An Expensive Taste’s 5th Birthday πŸŽ‚πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ

Where have those 5 years gone?

I really need to up my blogging game but with a few personal issues cropping up I’ve not had much chance to get back into it as much as I want, but I’m trying to start scheduling more time to drafting posts and getting some good photos.

Chapter 9


B I R T H D A Y πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ M O N T H

Seriously thou how is it September?

How has 8 months gone of 2018?? πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

I’m hoping its going to be a fun and exciting month with lots going on, I have a few birthdays in September, not just mine and I will be a little closer to 40Β #eeeekkkk

I have 5 friends birthdays πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆπŸ₯‚ in September within 3 weeks of each other, also two of my friends are due to give birth πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸΌ in September and I’m secretly hoping one will be born on my birthday, so I am a little excited for them to make a safe arrival into the world.

Hoping to book a little break away πŸ›«πŸ– with the boy πŸ’™ for a few days, thinking Italy but not quite sure where as yet? Will be for our Anniversary and for my Birthday.

Also hoping to book a night away in Liverpool for my friends Birthday, and book up to see the China’s First Emperor Exhibition β›© at the World Museum – For over 2,000 years, an underground army of life-sized terracotta warriors secretly guarded the tomb of the First Emperor Qin Shi Huang.

So a few things arranged and hope to arrange a few more bits, but that will depend on monies 🧐

Thanks for reading the post!Β  Have a great day!

Lots of Love

Chapter 8

People seriously where is this year going?Β  How is it August already?

8 months gone, 4 remaining!Β  What stunning weather we have been having the last month and half we are actually having a British Summer..

So what are my plans this month I hear you ask? Well I haven’t got massive amounts on but a few fun things happening.

4th Aug Girlies & Kids day, hoping the weather stays good, so it will be chilling, drinks and nibbles in the garden.

5th Aug My friends Baby Shower – eeeekkkk which I’m excited for πŸ™‚

8th Aug The boy coming down..Β  Fingers Crossed πŸ™‚

17th Aug a whole weekend with the boy @ his Niece’s wedding πŸ™‚

That’s all my plans at the min, nothing too exciting. But I’m hoping I can arrange some more stuff or meet up with some lovelies for drinks and catch ups.

What have you lot got planned for Aug?Β  Anything interesting or exciting..

Chapter 7



Seriously thou where is this year going.. I mean it’s now July πŸ“† it’s crazy!!

Arranging a birthday gathering for my mum as she has recently moved into a nursing home as she hasn’t been well.

Me & five others are off to Benidorm on 7th for a few days for a 40th Birthday Bash πŸŽ‰πŸŽˆ.

Also I move into my new place this month.. As I’m trying to save some pennies and should save roughly Β£150ish a month. So with this I can pay off my debt a little quicker and also save some.

Its one of my best friends Little Girl’s first birthday on 11th July!Β  It’s crazy how quick that year has gone…

Hoping The Boy is finally going to come down and spend sometime with me at my place ❀️.

I’m hoping to get a few more things slotted in for this month but will have to see what comes up and how the pennies stretch.

Hope you have enjoyed this post.

Lots of Love
