Holding on

Not everything goes the way we want it to, no matter how hard we try. The deposit on the house that you just can't afford, the new car, the holiday, the gap year, the relatives you just can't stand, the best friends, kids, exams, fees, work, and so the list goes on. No matter how much revision we do, or money we save, or people we meet, it still may not work out the way we like.

All the long nights we stay up, tossing and turning, wondering if it will be ok, hoping for the best. And still, the end result may not be as we wished it. People will always talk and there will always be someone trying to bring you down, But the thing we have to keep in mind and to work really hard at, is never giving up. Accept it and move on, but don't ever, ever, give up. Once you reach that goal, you know you deserved it. When you finally save the money for that thing you want, and get the grades you want, or whatever it is you long for, it's so much more worth it, knowing you deserved it! 

Its often hard to remember, but know this - never giving up makes it all the more worth while.

The Crop Watcher

There was a conversation someone had this week that has really stood out for me, and it went a bit like this:

It started off as a normal conversation, until I asked her how she was, when she responded with “ughh, not too good, I’m fed up!” So I asked her what was wrong and when she told me I couldn’t help but laugh!
“Well,” she said, “I planted some things in the garden, and the minute I turn around, its all messed up!”
“Oh," I didn’t really know what to say – I had no idea what she meant!

“Well,” she continued, “I did some investigating and found out that I have a problem. A pest. A cat.” That took me by surprise! I expected her to say something like there were tiny green bugs crawling all over her greens, not a cat!
“So what did you do?” I asked, and said that in the end she gave up, just took what she could and didn’t bother anymore. Seemed fair enough to me!

When I asked her how she knew it was a cat, she told me that she’d keep watch. Yep, that’s right; she kept watch. “But somehow,” she said, “That cat still got hold of them! I’d sit outside and or watch from my window, and every time I saw it I managed to chase it off. It kept coming back, so then I got fed up and gave up!” 

So I've included a photo that I took - Look at him, watching so intently!

The trip

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for my lack of posts this week, I should have done this about three days ago, but I was ill and also recovering after spending the day wondering the streets of London. Yes, that's right people, I went to London! I know some people are thinking, 'what's so special about that?' but this trip was special! 

See the thing is, we always plan things, but when it comes to it something happens, and the trip is cancelled. Most of the time our plans just simply remain...plans, but this time, we went! 

There were three stages to our journey, car, coach and then train. It wasn't that long, and it went quite fast. We got out of the car and said 'stage one complete', and on the coach we exclaimed 'we are going! Actually going!' Oh the excitement! Lucky for us, the coach dropped us off pretty much next to the station we needed, so we just hopped onto the train and ping! We were there! 

The highlights:

- We got there!

- The last stop of the train we went on was called 'Barking' - I just kept reading 'Barking' and thinking its barking mad! Ahahaha 

- We had lovely food

- We saw some amazing clothes

- I saw a Dalmatian! An actual live Dalmatian! (the others weren't as excited about this, but I thought it was AMAZING! I've never seen one before!) 

- We actually found some nice and reasonably priced clothes :-) 

- Exam results came out on the same day! 

And the best part was...the company! Thank you for making my day exciting! 

Note to self: keep planning because when the plans are put into action, it's most definitely worth it :) 

Here's a photo I of the stations we went to!

Got a proper look!

One evening this week we were sitting watching the news before bed, and the presenter was talking, I think about the riots in Turkey. Then he went on to talk about another story, one of the last ones of the night.

"And the Queen is this week, celebrating 60 years since her coronation" - something a long those lines. So there we were, in silence, watching the screen when my gran asked, "is that the Queen?" We told her it was, and she said, "oh hold on," picking up her glasses off the table and putting them on. "I can see her now."......

She watched the whole news programme but only actually put her glasses on to see the screen properly when she wanted to!! And that was at the end! It did leave us laughing out loud tho!

Later I asked her if she actually watched the other stuff, and she said "of course I did, I just wanted to get a proper look at the Queen." Who knows!
