Firstly I want to say sorry for not updating my blog sooner but Im sooooooooo close to finally finishing my wedding portrait art commission, so I've been busy painting (you can see a updated pic in my photos)
How was Valentines day for you guys?? I celebrated it as i do every year..... single lol. But I did get a prezzie this time, it counts if its from your sister right?? a nice box of choccies that I ate while watching a girly film :) Dont worry I never went all Bridget Jones, singing "all by myself" It was a bit of a backhanded thoughtful present, as she did give them to mum, saying, "i didnt get Lee anything coz james will buy her and Donna wont get anything" lol. She meant well but basically was saying theres no-one out there that loves you haha! Sisterly love ah! you can always rely on your family to build you up and knock you down at the same time! shes lucky I know she didn't mean it like that.
My oldest niece turned 6 on the 22th of Feb, i got creative making her a Harry potter inspired birthday cake (which you can see in my photos) we had a lovely argument free party- which if you know me, you will know that's rare when we mix with the (almost) in-laws. Ruby turning 6 does make you think where the hell did the time go! I still remember the first time we met her aged 8 months (Ruby and Rosie are step nieces but I love them just the same) now shes a big girl, who can read and write and goes to my school!!! its scarey. Time is just flying at such a rapid pace lately. Does that hint that i'm doing to much or not enough. I'm thinking more along the not enough route. Kinda feels like ive been in the slow lane while everyones busy getting on with there much more exciting lives in the fast lane.
As I've been cycling to work Nickelback has popped up on my MP3 alot, espically "If today was your last day" and Im really thinking its a sign lol. A sign thats saying "Donna go jump into that fast moving traffic, stop playing around now, less talk more action!" So I've thought "ok Chad this year I will try, just for you. I will remember that I'm the only one that can make my dreams a reality and go follow them" Thats exactly what I plan to do now :) I know, I know, I've said it all before but I'm serious and you guys are my witness's, if it looks like im slacking feel free to give me a kick up the arse haha. make it gentle though- I bruise like a peach :P
I also turned 29 this month, so this time next year, when I write this blog I might just be beginning my breakdown haha. Nah I'm just kidding I'm trying to be a much more positive cheerful person, I tried starting on the lead up to my birthday, by shopping with my mum. Saying right I really want to look abit more my age and try something new. So mum brought me loads of lovely new clothes, that actually has colour and pattern hehe (not just my usual grey rock t-shirts and black skinny jeans) and my little sister did the same for me. I actually think they work, I do look less like a teenager!
It was all going good, staying positive, start of a new me and all that. When the 27th of Feb comes along and spoils it haha. I wake up monday morning alil late, get dressed, grabbed my bag and cup from last night. Then go rushing down the stairs. Well I got to the first step and slipped down the whole first flight of stairs!!!!!! I landed on my back with a bag under me and last nights drink all over my nice clean jeans and all up the wall. Mum came to see what the bang was a found me laying there and found it highly amusing to call me Donna "the eagle" Edwards and say was I trying to enter the stair skiing Olympics lol. Only I could give myself the birthday bumps! then I went up the hall to get my shoes out ready to put on and pulled the handle of the drawer. Nearly fell over my bike before I had even gotten out of the gate, and managed to cut myself on the clingfilm box at work. so all in all it was a really great birthday :P I did cheer up when I saw all the lovely birthday messages though :)
I did get thinking is that an omen for how the rest of my years gonna turn out?? what do you guys think? am I doomed to have a accident prone year? should I hibernate now? I guess only time will tell, watch this space lol.
I hope it just means if you celebrate your birthday battered and bruised, then you have a great rest of the year! See that's me being positive even though I haven't seen any evidence of it yet :P
My youngest sister also moved out on the 29th, some would say that was a late birthday prezzie (Love ya really Lee Lee if your reading this :P ) but I think we wont really notice much difference. Shes 23 nearly and I think shes spent most of this year with James at his room that he was renting anyway. It will be abit strange coz she did have the odd night in with us and it'll be much less fun being a freak by myself lol. I just she'll be ok in her new place with James and that he takes good care of her. If not he'll have the Quicks to deal with! Also I hope he realizes what he's let himself in for hehe :P he does seem nice enough and not quite as under the thumb as Lee's previous boyfriends. I wonder how long it'll be before I get a baby Afro niece or nephew?? ????
My other sister Emma (the mum of my 4 beautiful nieces) moved out about 5 and a half years ago so I 'm now the last one left :( the oldest and the only one still left on the shelf, living with my mum and dad :( but on the plus side..........the rents a damn site cheaper hehe :) .............see positive!!!!!
Anyway I've had a stressful week and my beds calling me so I'll head off to sleep dreaming of a new start and how happy I am that its finally march.
Why am I glad its march? F1 BABY whoop whoop. 2 more weeks to go :) the countdown starts here!
Hope you guys are all doing good, please feel free to message me and tell me about your Feb and what you've been upto and what your looking forward to :)
Hope I hear from you,
