Im writing in pain ( exstream back ache )and disgust on why it took me so long to blog mainly as time went to quick both christmas and new year is a blur it feels like i got a weekend off work and thats it…

All though i did get most of my christmas presents apart from the Jeffery Campbell boots or the dior compact ….. sold out  story of my life  so far this year…

My christmas day was presents with the kids, lots of food and monopoly , and boxing day i spent the evening visiting the rest of my family in birmingham and going to the lovely italian  restaurant Piccolinos with the other half  and the place is now my favourite restaurant !!! and then spent the eveining opening my loveley presents !!

3.Sort out my work …and set up my website !

4.Plan at least 2 holidays

5.Save …Save….Save

Is it too late to say merry christmas??

Im really sorry for being such a shit blogger part of it is my fault for being so busy and the rest is some very sad circumstances…….

Were do i start …erm well 1st of all my lovely house became less lovely … to the point where i was hardly even in it i could go into details but its a long story and if you know me well enough you would have heard me complain countless times….. other than that i have some really bad news that has effected the blog quite significantly my beautiful amazing iMac apple computer was stolen for legal reasons i wont go into it but wow it has left a big empty space on my desktop and in my heart !!! lol it sounds sad but my whole life was on that computer countless pictures of my family, videos of my siblings, personal information, bookmarks of amazing artists..blogs and shops and most importantly priceless amount of beautiful future portfolio work of my photography !!!!

It’s just what i needed after an amazingly shit 2009 ….. being broke, failing my course, the worst summer ever, then uni losing my re submission work then nearly not even being able to go back to uni ……

Apart from being hit by a car it was the “best” worst ending to the ultimate shitest year in my life it was 2006 all over again …. even though now i look back at 2006 as a year i learnt so many lessons ( mostly about men … or should i say boys ?) i suppose next year i will look back at 2009 and realise that i learnt alot about the choices i make and the company i keep !!!

Well apart from all this horrible bad news i had i still have my ideas and my dreams so i can continue to make even more brilliant work….. i have my health and i have my family and friends and all i can say is when bad things like this happen it shows you who are your real friends !!!!

I hope everyone else had an amazing christmas mine was okay time of work was the best thing ever and seeing the little ones open their presents….. i got some Vivienne Westwood boots and jewelry off kevin and a necklace off anna all of it i love very much and then make up and bath stuff which is always lovely …..

No matter what happens keep smiling : )

After hours that day i found this … and i loved it,  you know i love stripes…..

Also To help me on my path towards photography he got me this amazing book

Photo 145 Photo 146

The Photography book

has some amazing photography with brief descriptions that go into lots of  detail but keeping the focus on the beautiful pictures, I hate books with too many words, When trying to read somthing for my course i find it too overwelming. As they say a picture speaks a 1000 words….

The next present deserves a post all to it self !!!

Love little tortoise xx

Bday cards and pressies ….

I got some lovely cards from the family and some nice friends …the rest showered me with wine and Malibu (literally some split in on my dress ha ) which in my eyes was just as thoughtful …


My favourite card
