pink milk, wiggley straws and teeny weeny loved ones!!

Goodness goodness goodness so much excitement you will not believe!!! yesterday was full of the wonderfullest news in the whole entire world, all day long!!! lovely lovely lovely lovely...

in the morning i went into uni to have a tutorial, so that my tutor could give me my results of my work last semester. i was feeling a teeny bit nervous but expected to just about pass. oh my goodness!!! i got one of the highest results on my course!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was amazing, i never expected to get such a high mark!! and all of my feedback was ever so lovely, i could not stop smiling. i called my very very excited parents to tell them. and they told me some very very exciting news....


I have a new teeny weeny baby cousin!!! my cousin gave birth yesterday at 2 minutes past midnight to a beautiful baby girl called chanel :) oh how i wish i was at home!! i so desperately want to meet her!!!! i go home in two weeks time, but that is going to seem like ever such a long time away.

i felt that after all of the excitement yesterday morning i
should celebrate. so i went to the shops and brought some pink milk and wiggley straws, and when i got home covered my eyes and my cheeks with glitter, and i drew all evening. only a teeny little way to celebrate, but it was lovely :)

...I have also been tagged by the wonderful here comes the sun to do the honest scrap tag!!!

i have to write ten honest truths about myself, so here they are:

♥ i miss home and speak to my family every single day

♥ i wish for my really long hair back, that went all the way down my back, like rapunzel...

♥ i dont have very much confidence at all in my work, but i am getting better

♥ i wish i could go back to granny and grandads house and stay there one last time. whilst grandad was still here, so i could smell his dusty workshop and hear his lovely chuckle. and whilst granny still had her memory and her mind, so i could taste
her wonderful food and she could brush my hair. and before the horrible nasty young ones wrecked the beautiful old house

♥ my favourite thing to draw on is envolopes, especially used ones, with black pens.

♥ even though i miss family and old memories with grandparents i am happier at the moment than i have been in a long time

♥ i appreciate my love every single day, and all he does for me, because i never ever thought i would find anyone like him, ever

♥ i have quite strong opinions, and even though i can be quite shy, i am not afraid to stand up for what i believe is right

♥ i have never been able to keep a diary, even though i would really love to. i always start them and end up filling the pages with drawings and scribbles and teeny stories instead

♥ i was born with arthrirus in both my legs, my ankles and my thumb. sometimes i have flare ups in
my joints, which mean they swell and i cant walk very well and it can be very painful, but i am fine and dont think of myself as having anything wrong with me because most of the time it is hardly noticeable. it meant for a long time i couldnt wear normal childrens shoes because i had plastic things in my shoes all the time to keep my feet straight, and all that would fit were doc martens, so i wore big red doc marten boots all the time, even to school, which i loved :)

the lovelies i tag are:

blue ring

i am afraid i must stop writing and writing to all of you wonderful ones and go and see my love. he is quite poorly today so i have been looking after him with medicines and soups, to try and make his ill bug dissapear. this post is quite a bit shorter than usual, but i just wanted to tell you all my news and show you all that i am here and ppreciate every single one of you sweet commenst and beautiful posts :) hopefully next time i will have more to show you!!

starry wishes
