Who won the week March 8th edition

Its time for who won the week, which is fandangos challenge. The challenge for us is to say who won the week for us, it can be a family member, a friend, a celeb, a politician, anyone!

This week, I hand the trophy to my wonderful sister Laura!
She helped me to apply for my visa so that I can go to the USA in May! Without her help, I dont think I’d have managed to complete my application!
I am so grateful to her for her help!
Also, she drives me places, and I’d be lost without her, its a great thing that she has a car!
So she won the week for me this week, thank you Laura!

New years eve plans, and a thank you!

Hi everyone

So its new years eve! And I hope your all having a good one! Whether your just starting yours, or finishing it and ringing in 2020, I hope that 2020 is your best year yet!

I am spending new years eve at my parents house! Mom and my sister, me and the kids, are all going to see peter pan, which is our local pantomime! We do this every year at christmas, but this year we decided to do it on new years eve! I think it will be a very special outing!

After the pantomime we’re going for a meal. We’re all going to an asian street food restaurant. My plan is to have beef and black bean! Its healthy and for a whole meal it only works out at 10 syns on my plan, so I am delighted! I can enjoy the meal without feeling guilty!

Then we’ll come home and I’ll ring in 2020 with a few drinks and watching the new year specials on TV! Happy new year, everyone! Enjoy whats left of 2019, and may 2020 be a superb year for you!

Thank you for continuing to support us and our blog in 2019. Your all amazing! I appreciate every like, and every comment! I am so grateful that you enjoy reading our blog! It means a lot to us!

Christmas gift from a friend!

Our friend Ray sent us a christmas gift! We got it just now. The post woman brought it after 7 PM! She said due to it being black friday there was lots of parcels being delivered and that is why she was delivering it so late in the evening!

We had fun opening it! It was makeup! Lipsticks, and lip liners! Thank you Ray! I love makeup. We dont have a lot of lipsticks and lip liners so it will be nice to have some new ones.

We are going to wear some of the lipstick next week going to the friendly call christmas party! I cant wait to try it out!

Its fun to get presents in the mail! Thanks again RAy! You made our day!

#Writing prompt 46, I want to thank you Attracta!

Sara is the host of writing prompt! This one is awesome!

I never had the chance to Thank

I never got to thank my first therapist Attracta. She was my therapist when I was 21 for 9 months. In that time she showed me what it meant to trust, and she showed me how having one person, just one person who cares in your life, can truly be beneficial.
She was the first person I had an attachment to and the first person who took me under her wing, who encouraged me to talk, to open up and tell my story.
She was the first person to see that we had did. And she was instramental in getting us assessed and seen by a psychiatrist who actually diagnosed us with did unofficially.
Thank you so so much, Attracta. I know our ending was hard, you said you lost your objectivity around my case, and that is why you could no longer be my therapist. I thank you for the time we did have together, I thank you for giving yourself to me so completely.
You set me on the path to healing, so, thank you for that!
