I love Christmas! 🎄🎁

1. Real Christmas tree or synthetic?
 Synthetic although we have got a real tree planted in the front garden that we had in 2 years ago but mum said it was far too messy so that was the end of that!
2.  You’re in a coffee shop, it’s December, what do you pick?
 This is so easy, even though I’m still yet to taste it 😦 I’d definitely order a white chocolate hot chocolate, can imagine it to be heaven in a cup!
3.  Whats your favourite colour scheme for decorating the tree?
 Even though I absolutely love the over the too multi coloured look!, our tree this year is fabulous red and white colour scheme 🎄
4.  Giving or receiving?
  I’d be lying if I said I don’t love receiving gifts! Who doesn’t? But there’s nothing better than seeing someones face light up when they love a gift!
5.  To mince pie or not to?
 😕 eugh I hate them! Strangely I’ve always wanted to love them because they’re so christmassy but I don’t!
6.  What’s your traditional sunday lunch?
 Ahh I’m beyond excited for Christmas dinner! We always have turkey, stuffing, pigs in blankets, Yorkshire puds, mountain of veg and gravy!
7.  Christmas day fashionfashion
Me and mum had always just stayed in our PJs on Christmas day while dad went for a pint but when I met my  ex boyfriend I started dressing up so now I do that every year!
8.  What’s your favourite Christmas songz?
 The Pouges – Fairytale of New York adore this song so much ❤
9.  What’s your favourite Christmas film?
Aww I’ve got a huge list of favourites but if I had to pick one it’d be Miricale on 34th street! Really gets me in the Christmas spirit 🙂
10.  Open presents before or after lunch?
Before..before..before! I’m far too impatient to wait until after dinner!

A mixture of nerves, excitement & anticipation!

nerves quote

If you’ve been reading my blog recently you’ll know that since I started this blog, I’ve decided I want to start my own business that will go into schools, colleges, universities and local organisations to talk about CP and how I haven’t let it stop me from living a full and happy life, So two weeks ago I took the first step by contacting a local organisation. Daisy uk have been amazing so far and have really helped me get my ideas together and focus! I went for another meeting on Monday which was pretty nerve wracking because it was the first time ive ever written my ideas down and had someone else look at them, it went so well that they’ve asked me to attend a local activities club next Monday to give a talk.

Although this is something ive always wanted to do, to say i’m nervous is the biggest understatement! My mind is spinning with questions ‘what do I say?’ ‘What if no one listens?’ ‘What if they think im boring?. When i’m thinking rationally I know how much of a good opportunity this is for me and how much it will help in my future career, which is why i’m so excited! Im just really starting to worry that I’ve bit off more than I can chew if that makes sense?

The future is something that at one point in my life, I wasn’t looking forward to and just the thought of work or mixing with people in everyday situations just filled me with dread! In the last month though my whole outlook on my future has took a complete 360 and I’m so happy too see whats ahead, my brain is just going into over drive and hooefully my first ever talk will go well.

So guys how do you keep your nerves in check? Any tips/advice will be greatly appreciated! 🙂
