Simple Things

This year, instead of buying each other presents, me and two friends decided to do a homemade Christmas. I didn't have any ideas at first but in the end I decided to made gingerbread men and a card with loads of photos on :)

Here are a few photos to show you what they turned out like...

I will admit the gingerbread looked a bit rubbish on its own, even though I spent hours making and decorating all the shapes! I decided to wrap them up and try and make them look pretty. Here's how I did it if you want to try: I used boxes for the bottom, I wrapped one of these in tissue and the other in wrapping paper. The inside is just a patterned paper napkin from Ikea. I put the gingerbread inside and put cling-film over the top then tied string round the whole box. Voila :)
Luckily my friends really liked them, I'm yet to receive their presents but I'll update you on what their ideas were :) Let me know what you think, a nice idea or stick to buying presents?

Hope you all had a magical Christmas,

Hey House Brick

Oooh it's nearly Christmas, how exciting!? The house is decorated, I've bought all of my presents and the snow just keeps falling :)

My friends want to do our own 'Come Dine With Me' after January exams. I think it's a great idea but it'll probably never get followed through, still exciting though!

Hope you're all well,

Georgina xx

P.S. If you don't know what 'Come Dine With Me' is, you're missing out. Look it up it's brill :)

My Little Haunting

Drugs. Not illegal ones, prescribed ones. But still shit.

I am having every single side effect on the leaflet. I've woken up to blinding headaches, been sick, had a sore throat, dizziness and indigestion. I feel constantly tired but still can't sleep. They won't leave me alone. And of course my parents don't know so I also have to act like it's 'just a bug.'

I can cope for a few days but when you read that they may last 'for 2-3 weeks' it's pretty crap. I am not having this ruin my exams or my christmas for that matter. Right now I need my concentration. Eurgh.

I don't feel like me at all.

Bring It All Back

I need to admit this to someone. It's totally cringy and I will never say this sentence out loud, but...

I had an epiphany...listening to S-Club 7.

There, I wrote it. Now I can try and explain my epiphany in a few short sentences becasue I quite fancy getting some sleep :)

Basically I was listening to 'Bring it All Back' (on shuffle may I add!) and thought the lyrics were very fitting in my current situation of feeling shit and unmotivated and absolutely hopeless. Well they brightened up an otherwise shit day :)

The lyrics are below but the one that really stood out was "You only have to answer to yourself." That is so fucking true. Whatever you do, at the end of the day it's you who pays the price. Thank you S-Club, you not only provided my childhood with your cheesy music and upbeat dancing but you've also supplied me with some good life advice :)

Don't stop, never give up
Hold your head high and reach the top
Let the world see what you have got
Bring it all back to you

Hold on to what you try to be
Your individuality
When the world is on your shoulders
Just smile and let it go
If people try to put you down
Just walk on by don't turn around
You only have to answer to yourself

Don't you know it's true what they say
That life, it ain't easy
But your time's coming around
So don't you stop tryin'

Don't stop, never give up
Hold your head high and reach the top
Let the world see what you have got
Bring it all back to you
Dream of falling in love
Anything you've been thinking of
When the world seems to get too tough
Bring it all back to you

Try not to worry 'bout a thing
Enjoy the good times life can bring
Keep it all inside you
Gotta let the feeling show
Imagination is the key
'Cos you are you're own destiny
You never should be lonely
When time is on your side

Haha, I hope you enjoyed this :D

Stop complaining about the cold and the snow.

It's beautiful.

Just a Lonely Radio

Last night I went to see Johnny Flynn in Birmingham. I've listened to his music before and like it but never really properly got into it. But seeing him live made me appreciate his music so much more. It's so real and he's an amazing musician, not some fake commercialised crap (Think Mumford & Sons/Laura Marling). Don't get me wrong, I like chart music but it's good to hear some good simple songs, made for a love of music not just to make money. So this post may be a long one but it is to show you the wonder that is Johnny Flynn in the hope you'll like his music too :)

Here's one of his many great songs, this is the one I though best summed up his style of music but yeah, look at some others too :)

We didn't know who the support acts were going t be because it just said 'and other performances' but they were surprisingly good. The first, 'Melodica, Melody and Me' were similar to Johnny Flynn, folky indie music with a load of random instruments. I was surprised at how good they were! The second act was Basia Bulat who was annoying at first but she really connected with the audience and looked like she was having a great time, she did go a bit crazy though :P Here's the video for 'Ode to a Mountain' :)

That's the end of my long-winded, Johnny Flynn and others post :) I hope you enjoyed it, I'm not posting as much as I should just because of school and blah blah blah but I will try to keep you updated :)

Thanks for reading,

Georgina xx
