Not had such a good time recently, My beloved cat Bandit has been missing for three weeks now, finally got a clear result of not pregnant, which I wasn’t what I wanted and was a bit gutted, depression has reared its ugly head again and started planting seeds of doubt ad despair. Just not felt too good as you can imagine. So I decided to write about what I’m loving at the moment.
Thirteen Reasons Why *Contains mild spoilers*
I finished watching the series on Sunday and was left wowed. Towards the end of the series the episodes portray ‘issues’ in a gritty life like way making you feel what the characters were feeling. I wasn’t expecting this at all despite the ‘graphic content warnings’. The series really didn’t disappoint. I loved the way it showed what happens to the characters and how listening to the tapes had effected them and how Hannah’s suicide took a toll on her parents. I loved how such a taboo subject was shown how it really is. I’ve been there myself and remembered all the feeling Hannah was feeling (obviously not for the same reasons) I remember wanting to make a change in my life and get help but being too afraid to. There has been news of a second series, I can see how this would carry as Hannah’s parents took the school to court and we never really hear a result about who won, and it would be good to see what happened to Bryce and Jessica and of course Clay and Skye. I highly recommend the series to anyone but warn those who have self harmed or attempted suicide it may be a bit triggering.
I’m not the biggest gamer on the planet, unlike the boyfriend, he has them all. I’ve been gaming about a year now on consoles now I own a few. Recently I have been playing a lot on my game boy colour (Pokemon Yellow) my PlayStation one (Spyro) PC gaming (The sims 1 and sims city) and now after a bit of thought I bought a Nintendo DS lite. I used to have one when they first came out but it broke. I found this one in a charity shop for £10 and bought Nintendogs £1.50 and have been playing since. I also used to have this game. I used to love it. I have the Labrador and friends edition and had a chocolate Labrador called Jake for about two years. This time I have the Dachshund edition and a Husky called Daisy (came with the game and didn’t have the heart to donate the dog) and my Golden Retriever Jupiter. Its a great little boredom no brainer game. Its actually helped me relax a lot better than trying to shoot things on Deadpool and collect Lego bricks in ALL my Lego games. (oh so many-thanks to my boyfriend!) I cant actually play my Xbox 360 at the moment as I’ve lost my charging cable and its on batteries which rinse within and hour of gaming. Its annoying too as I have a few games I’ve not even tried yet like Epic Mickey two and Lego Batman. Ugh.
Unicorn cup and crusha Shakes
obsession is an understatement. My mum got me this cute cup and all I want to drink out of it is milkshakes as it looks so pretty and colourful. I’m not a pink person but my favourite is strawberry or raspberry crushas. Yummy!
Taste amazing, look amazing. Life feels better with pop tarts in it. (these are the chocolate hot fudge sundae ones. Where have they been all my life.
No matter how old I get I still worship these books. There is nothing like them on the planet. They are defiantly my go to books when I feel rubbish and losing myself in honeydukes or in a defence against the dark arts class. Also was the release of the fantastic beast movie. My boyfriend got me a niffer funko pop and I love him, and we’re going to the Harry Potter studios next week for our 6 month Anniversary!! wanted to go forever and even though we booked this ages ago I never believed we’d go but its like 8 sleeps and I’m so freaking excited! In preparation to visiting the studios I am re reading my favourite books and re-watching my favourite movies. I have my Harry Potter T-shirt at the ready and I’m looking forward to going!!
I have seen these things popping up everywhere and after reading up on them bought one. I love it. Yesterday I took a bus trip (which I avoid like the plague) as its an anxious situation I hate putting myself in. always feel anxious on buses given we live in the middle of no where and if something went wring (hundreds of possibilities) we’d be stranded or whatever. Obviously this didn’t happen as I am home writing this now but the trip was pretty painless given I hate the little cube in my hand. What a difference. Its such a good distraction for the mind and the hands.
It has six different faces for different types of distractions
copied from fidget cube leaflet
Breathe- say goodbye to stress. The design of this face is inspired by traditional worry stones tools used to reduce anxiety when rubbed
Roll- the gears and the ball on its side are all about rolling movements (with the ball supporting a built in click feature)
spin- looking for a circular fidger? Take this dial for a spin
click- No need to click that pen any more. you’ll find 3 clicker buttons and two silenced buttons on the side of this design to satisfy the clicker in all of us.
Glide- you don’t have to be a gamer to enjoy this satisfying gliding action of this joystick.
Flip- Pivot this switch back and forth gently if you’re looking to fidget silently or quickly for a more audible click.
some times I struggle getting through books, especially if my mind is else where so I took out a new subscription to Amazons website audible which allows me to listen to books anywhere. I have a book on my phone I am enjoying at the moment called ‘The school of good and evil’ its like being a child again having someone read to you. Reminds me of sleep overs at my nan’s house. Happy thoughts. I also find it handy to listen to while I’m writing or journaling or doing housework, out and about or just chilling.
So that’s my Loves so far this month. Anyone else tried any of these or share similar loves this month? Do share, I love reading other peoples.
Take care, hope you all have a great day.
Love MJ xx
