I've started my christmas shopping too
dunno where I'm gonna keep them for the time being 
and i don't know who I'm giving what to yet but I've started and thats the main thing
ooooo also!!
i have a provisional licence now because I'm like a total adult now who can get a scooter like a 17 year old… 
on a positive note i'm about half way through doing my sister and her husbands wedding album
should be done for christmas if i keep it up!

i'm quite liking it so far actually 
thought id get mad and give up by now lol
I'm really quite concerned
i started this job with the intention of making money
and that was it
i decided a couple of shifts in that i wasn't going to partake in the immense about of gossip that spreads around that place like wildfire
i learnt quickly that the place is crazy incestrial with there being lots of staff couples
also lots of staff that have hooked up and stuff
i decided that there was no chance i would get involved with anyone because it would cause nothing but conflict at work
which i obviously don't want
what i didnt take into consideration was the fact that maybe someone who is engaged might decide to fancy me and make it quite clear in messages but never to my face
when we're actually together we just chat and it seems so so normal 
but then as soon as we're separated it turns to fb messages that give me a strong impression he is somewhat interested even though he is engaged 
so why on earth is he doing this 
and what the hell am i meant to do about it

i walked to big asda yesterday with our steph
that from sharlston to walton to asda at durkar
then back to walton

i got a blister and i thought my feet were gonna drop off
then my knee started to ache
and i was just generally tired
but it was well nice
weather was good for it
it started raining when we got home

it waited for us to get home
it was so sweet

Tuesday, 26 May 2015

oooo and i made a shit ton of comic book confetti for our stephs wedding
it looks dead good!
funky fresh!
i think using the cutter gave me carpel tunnel though
my arms not been the same since
and the skin on my fingers is right tough now n all 

things i do for my darling sister
another thing I've done whilst radio silent was crafting
of course
i  made my mum a mothers day card and ash a i miss you card

because i can't be bothered to turn it the right way round because its 11 o'clock
i'll just tell you it says 'I miss you more than a squirrel misses its nuts after it buries then and forgets where' 
but obviously i put two R's in buries cause I'm a dickhead
but she didn't seem to notice i don't think

it was also my nephews birthday and chloes birthday while i've been blog free
and because I'm a master crafter i make my own wrapping paper
the top one with the cats was for chloes present
which was an ice watch
and the second one with all the love hearts on was for my nephew
he got the hobbit cause thats all he wanted (Y)
it was my brothers birthday as well after them twos and i bought him a mug that had Lionel on it and his hair was a rich tea biscuit and it said Lionel Richtea and i laughed a lot in TK Maxx so i had to buy him it


 
 another thing is that a girl i know from high school called leanne asked me to make her some wrapping paper
and she said she'd pay me to do it
so technically I'm a professional wrapping paper maker now but i don't wanna blow my own horn
she asked for a sheet with penguins and stars on
another with unicorns n that on
and then asked for another with birds on and one goat
which baffled me but who am i to question it
moneys money so i goated it up
I'm feeling pretty good about it really 
i mean my backs in bits but i feel happy and a little proud that i somehow turned a hobby into a money making scheme
granted I've only got one customer but better than making it for no reason

i need to design some for abbie and jordans birthday presents now
i also need to buy the presents...

Rob and James really left us to go to South Africa
We had a meal and a night out before they left
Which was nice
Got a bit drunk as to be expected 
They're gone for three months so I'm on my phone a lot less but in the house a lot more
But i think i've gotten used to it now
And James is on Facebook everyday so I still get to chat to em 
I agree, it's cheating but you try n tell them that



I've been to the cinema a bit recently
I've seen Spooks with the fit Jon Snow in
I thought the film was average 
But i'm not fussed for spy stuff
I obviously only went to see it cause of Kit Harrington
Same reason i put myself through Pompeii (the film, not the disaster)
He looked weird in skinny jeans

Errm I've seen Pitch Perfect 2 
Which was a laugh as expected
But i was Ser Grumps-a-lot that day so i bet i find it funnier when it comes out and i rewatch it

But the best film i've seen was Mad Max
It was crazy good
And mental
And insane
The whole thing just blew my mind and i just wanna watch it again and again and again
I went to see it with Jordan and I was a bit like meh when he suggested it but any excuse to hang with Jordan will do nicely
But i'm so freaking glad he did

Oooo also Game of Thrones, getting closer to the end of season five now :( 
Giddy for the finale though
Gonna be killer

Ermmm I watched Saw 5 at my sisters the other day and i realised that Luke from Gilmore Girls was in it!! Never noticed that before 

I watched a film called Afflicted on Netflix cause Dani told me it was garbage and she proper wasn't lying
About a poorly lad going on a world trip with his pal before he gets too ill to do it and turns into a vampire
Thats literally the whole story so don't bother watching it
Save yourself two hours of your life
i also assisted sam when he got a photography gig with kirklees college
he had to do four photos
this was in march 
and we've STILL not been paid
right friggin joke

but while i was at the huddersfield campus i came across these beauties! 
i wanted to steal them all but they told me i weren't allowed to
tsk



i loved it but it made me sad for not being clever enough to have taken science so i could have played with this stuff everyday :(

heres sam touching a skeletons bum


what have i done while I've been away…
other than watch gilmore girls of course

i went to a wedding!
chloes sisters wedding
which was lovely as expected

i got chocolate all over my dress and laddered my tights 
so you know it was a good night


ignoring my miserable face
i think i looked pretty smoking
its the hat mostly though
that hat is well nice

Friday, 22 May 2015

okay now i've finished Gilmore Girls i can find time for my blog again
its just that GG was such a huge dedication
seven series and all
so i had no time for anything else
and now I'm done
i will start to blog again
because my life is hollow and sad
and i need something to replace it 
and this is that something

i read a book called bird box and it was freaky as balls
seriously
horrible
but it didn't give me night mares so i thought
'ah well it can't have been that good a book actually' 
but the nightmares were just a bit delayed! 
had a birdbox nightmare last night and it was horrible
which is extension means bird box is a killer good book
feeling pretty sailory today

i think my blog has fallen out with me, it won't let me customise the background, i just wanna change the flies
its not a lot to ask for but nooooo

(i do care, please work)

Friday, 20 March 2015

I have read five books so far this year
granted fantastic mr fox is the thinnest book in the world
but who cares
cause I'm crazy educated now




when i was reading georges marvellous medicine 






there was a section in the book that had me
creased over 
"George couldn't help disliking Grandma.
She was a selfish grumpy woman. She had
pale brown teeth and a small puckered-up
mouth like a dogs bottom."

honestly it nearly did me in



























and when I was reading The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains by Neil Gaiman (who wrote Coraline) which I still am unsure on, i don't know whether i liked it or not. but it was illustrated by eddie campbell and there was one picture that i was 100% sure was gonna give me nightmares. its a girl who was tied to a thorn bush by her hair and no one found her til a year after and its haunting
 creepsville or what!

deep breaths

just relistened to my cd from when i went to see a psychic and I'm pretty gutted because nothing that she said has actually happened for me lol

I've become an over achiever
I never thought the day would come either!
I've read two books in february!
Two
And its only the 16th
So theres room for a third…

(i'm sure I can smell bacon cooking :S)

February 2.0 was Coraline by Neil Gaiman
My mum bought me this for my birthday and I was a bit reluctant cause I'm totally obsessed with the film and it changes it when you read the book after but I manned up and read it anyway
And believe me when I say I've never read a creepier book
It shocks me because its for kids
It freaked me out pretty bad
And I've been having some pretty fucked up dreams since I started reading it
What you need to know is that it isn't scary
It's just creepy
But is why I think they can get away with it for kids
But even the illustration are messed up
Dave McKean has done a good job and got it spot on for each chapter 
But they are freaky as balls

(And although this picture terrifies me, I really really want it on a tshirt. how cool would that be!)


Its very different to the film
But theres more little changes than huge massive ones
But obviously there are a few huge massive ones 
But now I've watched the film and read the book I'm at that tricky stage when you don't know which one you like most…
The film is the reason for my yellow rain coat and my blue and white stary bedding, laptop case and pencil case
But the book has scenes that weren't put into the film that maybe they should have been because that cellar scene is literally fucking horrifically terrifying
Chapter 9
Super Creepsville

I find it hard to explain because it isn't a scary book
When I was little
Probably too little
I read a book called The Demon Within by Dana Reed
And that book was a scary book
It stopped me from sleeping type of scary
And a couple of years ago I found it in the attic so I read it again
It still stopped me from sleeping
But Coraline isn't like that
It gets your mind thinking more than just out right scaring you

Anyway
Big fan
Gonna read the other stories in this book then read his 'The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains'(thank you abbie)

why do people get fickle? 
i get fickle about my nail polish and my favourite song 
not about people

Thursday, 5 February 2015

i've just read an article about the narnia chronicles and the guy who wrote the article said that the silver chair was truly the worst of the collection


why bother making a film out of it??
why not leave it at the four kids from the three movies and leave eustace and jill out of it


because of the last battle
meant to be a life changing book and all this stuff so he says
and they'll probably make a film out of that too cause i bet eustace and jill are in that n all
let me check
'Jill and Eustace are called to Narnia once more,…' - The Last Battle

I just don't know how Eustace and Jill are gonna even compare to Peter Susan Edmund and Lucy
actually peter and susan did my fucking head in
so really just Edmund and Lucy
I dunno if they'll do it for me


i need to read them all right now!!
and i need the collectors editions but they're relatively expensive god damn it
I've just had a thought!
what if the professor in the lion the witch and the wardrobe is digory or someone like that from the magicians nephew
and thats why he doesnt get all freaked out when the children tell him about narnia and encourages them in the beginning
and is it fate that the children get taken there to that house or did the professor know something no one else did???
hmmmmmmmm perhaps…… 


i need to read some theories
please excuse me
number four on my list of sorting my life out was to 'read a book a month'

februarys book was one that i got for christmas from chloe
i thank thee again miss
The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis

FUN FACT: did you know the C stands for Clive and the S stands for Staples? What an old school name



It took me three days to read it
I already knew the story cause of the film obviously and haven't actually read the first book, The Magician's Nephew, because i don't have it so I don't know whether in the first book there is a bit of info that would have been good to know before reading the second book but fuck it
who cares really
although in the back of this one there is a little synopsis of each of the other 6 books
it says this for the magicians nephew:

'Make your choice, adventurous stranger;
Strike the bell and bide the danger,
Or wonder, till it drives you mad,
What would have followed if you had.


Magic and a mad uncle put two young children, Digory and Polly, in a situation where they are forced to make a choice. The result is an adventure beyond their wildest dreams as the doorway to the magical land of Narnia opens for the first time…'

so i guess I'd have just got a bit of a Narnian back story

it was alright
im not sure I'm the biggest fan of his writing style
but i suppose it is aimed at kids
and I'm not a kid anymore
unfortunately
though i would have never read it if i was still a kid
so, every cloud i guess

I'm still interested in reading them and will just power through his writing style
mostly because they're making a fourth narnia film, The Silver Chair, which is the 6th book and its not out til like 2016 so i have to know the low down
The book says this about it:

''It must be a dream, it must, it must,' said Jill to herself. 'I'll wake up in a moment.' 
But it wasn't and she didn't'


Eustace and his friend, Jill, are pulled back into Narnia because Prince Rilian, the son of King Caspian, has disappeared. With the aid of a rather gloomy marsh-wiggle the children set out to find him. But will they be able to resist the enchantment of the Lady of the Green Kirtle…'

okay, the things i need to know are how long since The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is The Silver Chair set??
one year?
ten years??
How long after?
Cause if Eustace and Jill are having to look for the Prince does that mean Caspian is dead? 
Also who the hell did Caspian bed to make a prince??! 
cause in the dawn treader it'd been three years since he'd seen susan and he still wasn't over her, if your not over someone in three years you aint getting over em caspian!

I wonder why it's always children that have these adventures
perhaps because the target audience is children and therefore its more relatable?
or children have better imaginations and could handle all the crazy shit that happens to them
but just to throw kids into a battle isn't cool
although maybe peter is 16 and we just haven't been told?
but thats still no excuse for edmund cause in the dawn treader film it states he's too young to join the army
hmmm 
maybe its their open-mindedness
who knows

i used a fantastic mr fox bookmark with this book and it didn't feel right

could be a really long earring if it wasn't a book mark

my chocolate ban lasted until a minute ago when i ate a yorkies man sized chocolate button

officially lasted until sunday the 18th of january 14:49

Thursday, 15 January 2015

My name is Rebecca Wells and I am a chocolate addict.
I've just eaten a 126g bag (sharing bag) of galaxy counters in ten minutes.

My latest mission is to see how long I can go without chocolate.
See if I have any willpower at all




So starting now, Thursday 15th of January 2015, 20:39 I will not eat another piece of chocolate until I truly can't go on any further. Or forget. I'll probably forget by tomorrow.


MISSION IS A GO
when jordan asked me what i wanted for christmas i said i wanted something that reminds me of when i was little
which is tricky cause i was just being awkward really 
and he did a bit of Facebook stalking
and he found this picture:
this is me being all adorable when i was small and my grandma knitted me that cardigan cause she's like a pro knitter or something (was clearly too small for me cause the sleeves are half way up my arms!) 
and because jordan is insanely acema, my christmas present is this: (i only got it on tuesday cause he was in a car accident and I've not seen him since the hospital (also it took him forever to make))
its so brilliant i love it more than sky rim
speaking of sky rim heres a picture of my playing sky rim in the jumper:
he always gets me way better presents than i get him
his present game is so chuffin high
