As time goes by
And soon as you reach a better place
Still I’ll give the whole world to see your face
And I’m bragging right next to you
It feels like you gone too soon
The hardest thing to do is say bye bye”

So yeah, 2008 has been a pretty sad year, I hope 2009 will be alot better for you & I both *hugs*

In less than 24 hours, I’ll be back being a couch potato in Paris and staying for a while to celebrate the upcoming year :wave:

Woah it’s Christmas already, 2008 has flown by & it’s time to stuff my face with tons of turkey, potatoes, prawns & fruit cocktail trifle not to mention all the gifts :angel:

On Monday, mom & I went to the Crematorium and take flowers with us for my grandparents, I normally did this with my grandfather a few times a year, but now he’s gone too and this will be my 1st Christmas without him, it feels kinda weird. I hope he’s having Turkey up in the sky with my Grandmother knowing that we are thinking about them *hugs*. After putting the flowers down near the book of remembrance, we laid a single red rose next to the tree we scattered my grandfather’s ashes around *sigh*

Anyhoo, I hope you all have the greatest Christmas full of gifts, belly popping food & tv movies, I know I will! Dad is over from Paris for Christmas and I’m jetting off to Paris for New Year which will be a cool break!

Peace & Love <3

Thanks to Santa Claus my dad I’ve now become addicted to the Nintendo Wii. A few weeks ago he bought the Nintendo Wii & Wii Fit complete with Wii Sports & Wii Play 😀

The day it got delivered, I set it up and started playing bowling & tennis (my favorite games so far) and it was funny jumping around like an idiot! But the worse was yet to come… when I played tennis with mom later that week, instead of hitting the invisible ball with the remote, she ends up wacking me in the arm so hard I dropped to the floor out cold, it hurt like hell :crazy:

But the best bit about it is the Wii Fit, when we started playing it, mom & I couldn’t stop laughing our heads off at doing Yoga poses, ski jumping, step aerobics & jogging. It is truely one of the best inventions ever. I’ll leave you now with some photos of unboxing as well as my mom & brother in action LOL

Sitting with mom the other night, I was craving something sweet to eat but there was nothing around so I ended up baking a cake at 8pm! I cheated though, it wasn’t my own recipe, it was a box mix from Betty Crocker & it turned out really yummy!

Once it was done baking, I decorated it with white buttercream icing, coconut shavings then dyed some of the icing red to pipe Merry Xmas & jazz it up a little bit 😀

The cake is really moist and yummy, however, the icing is a little bit sickly so don’t take a huge slice like I did & end up not being able to finish it :$

*screams at the top of her lungs* :grr:

For nearly 48 hours my blog has decided to battle a bad case of PMS & take forever to load resulting in no one really being able to access my blog! I have no clue why >.< I thought it was because of the changes I've made over the past week or so, but I switched to a blank default theme & that still won’t load therefore it’s not the theme or the plugin’s I use. The weird thing is, I can access the dashboard/admin area and type this post but viewing the theme (any theme) won’t work *cries*

It’s not a server problem (at least I don’t think so) because I host Sou’s blog and it’s working perfectly, same with my forum & a few sub-domain’s I’m working on in the background.

Therefore, I’m clueless….

Update:
Finally it’s up after a few days of downtime & I’ve jazzed it up a little! God I’ve missed this place!

Just when I was going to get into bed, dearest little doggy decides to vomit on the duvet cover!

I run to get a cloth to clean it all up & flush it down the toilet when I start heeving and proceed to vomit as well after seeing/smelling other vomit!

I shouted for my mom to get me water & she burst out laughing :@ I’m now in bed feeling queezy & the dog is snoring his head off like nothing happened!

No more little treats for him!

Really… I do! I hate the fact my lips get all chapped up, your skin gets ultra dry, your hair looks so miserable, you freeze to death like an ice cube & you slide all over the place from ice :grr:

Recently the weather has been terrible, I really don’t remember it being this cold at the same time last year! It’s so bad that I’ve resorted to keeping the heating on in my apartment 24/7 (something I never do) and covering myself with a huge ass blanket for extra warmth while sitting on the sofa, but still I’m freezing >.< Last week, the temperature dropped to -5°c while at my grandfather’s mom’s house, we were both shivering like mad, turned the heating up & drank some hot chocolate <3 but when going to bed it was so bad I had to sleep with socks on, plus little doggy dog was curled up next to me for extra warmth, so he was like a mini hot water bottle 😀 Anyhooo, I don't think I have anything else to bitch about, the temperature is currently 7°c and raining. Well I could start bitching about how my favourite shoes got all wet this afternoon while out shopping with my parents (dad is back in town until Monday <3 ), my poor shoes... I hope they survive! I'll leave you all with pictures taken last week with ice all over the place *shiver*


I’m heading to Paris at the end of December to spend New Year there and when I come back I want to dramatically change my hair.

Since I was 16 my hair has basically had the same sort of style with only the length being different, but now I need change. 2009 is all about moving on and opening a new chapter in my life so what better way to start than hair chopping!

I played around with a virtual hair makeover site using my photo and the image below is what I’ve come up with, only a little bit longer. A darker color, full fringe, shorter and shiny!

What do you think?


My bestestest friend JuJu is 25 today *throws penguins in the air*

She’s been by my side thru thick & thin, especially this year when I’ve needed her the most, so please wish her the happiest birthday in the world & hope her 25th year is the best one yet!

Love ya biatch :*

Every weekend I go to my grandfathers house & spend time with my mom & the dog.

Yesterday when the dog saw me, he went nuts running all over the place waiting for me to tickle & play with him. As I was tickling him, his little sharp claw scratched me on my arm, ouch no.1!

Last night when it was bed time, he ran to my bedroom & jumped on my bed meaning he wanted to snooze next to me instead of the scary kitchen where he normally sleeps, this is his weekend treat LOL

So last night he was all over the bed (bare in mind it’s a single bed) he took up a good proportion of the bed and I was left with my butt up against the -2 celcius wall freezing while he enjoyed the comfort of lying on his back with his little paws in the air! The cheek of him grrrr!

This afternoon as a joke, I climbed into his doggy bed and pretended to sleep with his blanket & toys. He went nuts, kinds like how dare she go in my bed, subsequently headbutts me in my nose and a small trickle of blood appears, Ouch no.2!

I’m being abused! You call the Animal Abuse people when someone is abusing an animal, but who do you call when they abuse you??!?!

He’s currently snoring his little yorkie head off in my bed again, I’m squashed against the wall & he’s got most of the covers!

I’m taking back his Christmas present!

My brother & his girlfriend fiancée bought a 7 week old Border Collie puppy and named him Fudge. He is really cute, has blue eyes & pees all over the place LOL.

Bobby (yeah that’s Chewy’s real name) is scared of Fudge, in the times Fudge has been over visiting, Bobby has been hiding close to mom & me and running away from Fudge. Last night, Fudge was chasing Bobby in the garden and accidently (or so we think) bumped into him and that spooked the poor little termite especially when Fudge cornered him in the hall way and Bobby couldn’t get passed.

I guess it will take a while before they get all friendly but Fudge will grow up to be 3 times the size of Bobby, if not more so it better be sooner or later!
