OMG [Apr. 14th, 2010|02:22 pm]
I forgot I had this so thought I'd update since so much has changed since I last did.. I have finally got round to doing what I've always wanted to and am studying to become a nurse. Felt like it was now or never as Leah is getting older and I feel like I'm more ready and able to now. Really enjoying it and made loads of new friends.
Leah was seven last week and I can't believe it, remember updating this when she was a baby! She is so grown up for her age and makes me laugh a lot with some of the things she come out with now. She's doing really well at school and enjoying the before and after school club and she goes to rainbows once a week too!
Still living in Penicuik (don't think we'll ever leave haha) but really settled and happy where we are :)
That'll probably be me for another year.. maybe I can update when I complete each year of my course and hopefully say how fast it's going!

My cousin Tom is doing a trek across Iceland to raise money for Macmillan cancer support. If anyone can donate even just a little bit of money that would be great thankyou. The link to his website is below.

I just got a Christmas card from my brother's girlfriends parents. I have never met them before but they thanked me for my kindness this year of letting Caz stay at mine for a couple of months till her and Chris found a place of their own. It's the little things like that, that make you realise there are still some lovely people out there.

I keep forgetting to update this these days.
Most things are good still. I've had a few problems with my kidneys recently and they can't work out what's wrong with them! I've been back and forward to the doctors quite a lot which I don't like. I'm going for a scan in a couple of weeks though so hopefully that will help work out what it is. I am trying to stay positive about it all as I don't feel too bad most of the time and I am quite happy just now apart from that :).
I am loving the snow although it's not good for people trying to get in and out of Penicuik. Apparently it's taken people up to a couple of hours to get out the last couple of days and some have just given up!
I need to get Leah a sledge so I can pull her up to school on it. The snow has also made me feel really Christmassy (sorry to those who aren't quite there yet). We have the tree up already but need to get some more decorations out of the attic.
Hope everyone is well. It'll probably be at least another month before I'm back on this again hehe.

I've not updated this for a couple of months so I thought it was about time..
Life is good just now and I am fairly content with most things :).
I am now officially a childminder so if anyone knows anyone in or around Penicuik looking for child care let me know :P. It's quite scary that I have my own business so I'm hoping it all works out ok! I am going on a first aid course before I start taking children. I was quite surprised that is wasn't compulsory to go on one before starting. Leah fell at the bottom of the stairs a few weeks ago and ended up in the Sick Kids with a big bump on her head. She was absolutely fine but it scared me a bit so I'd rather be more prepared if things like that happen in the future, especially if it's other people's children I'm looking after!
Leah still seems to be settling in at school ok and enjoying it. It's half term just now so she has been staying with Jordi for a few days. It's scarily quiet in the house. My brother moved in with his girlfriend last week after being here for a few months so it is quite odd being on my own but nice and peaceful at the same time.
I havn't been socialising as much recently due to trying to save money, except the odd visit to the good old Crown. I am thankful for Miriam still living in Penicuik! Going to the studios with everyone at halloween though for the first time in ages. I think that's about it!

The first week of Leah being at school has gone over so quickly. She is doing really well and settling in fine even if she is a bit more grumpy! We're getting lots of exercise every day aswell with the school being at the top of yet another hill.
I am almost there with getting my childminding business set up too. I honestly didn't believe the process would take as long as they said but it has! Still it feels good to be actually doing something with myself. I feel like I've kind of turned into a proper grown up these past couple of months!
This weekend I might be acting less grown up though as it's Miriam and Leighanne's birthday night's on friday and saturday. Why did they have to be born so close together?!

I already asked this on bebo but is anyone going/or know anyone who's going to see the Kings of Leon at the SECC in december? A couple of my friends were meant to be going but bought tickets on ebay and ended up not getting them :(. I still want to go as I really like them and don't want to have to sell my ticket.

Today was Leah's first day at school. She seemed a bit scared before going but once she got there was absolutely fine. A few of her friends from nursery are in her class which is nice. It was funny when she came outside when it was time to go home, she just looked so grown up. I managed not to cry surprisingly! Leah seems to like her teacher, I've had a lot of "but Mrs Leslie says..." already and I feel there's a lot more to come! I am so glad it went well though and am so proud of her.
I took a few photos before going so here are a couple of them. They all seem a bit blurry now that I've put them on the computer though sadly.

Don't leave your door open even though it's a nice day - I just found a random cat in my living room! Luckily Holly was outside, I don't think she would've been too happy to see it..

I can't believe that's me been on holiday for two weeks. Tunisia was good and very hot. Did a lot of sunbathing and swimming. Started to teach Leah how to swim, she is much more confident in the water now. She made a few wee friends aswell which was nice. I did water aerobics a few times which was funny. Dancing at the side of the pool after it was not! Went to a zoo which made me feel like I really was in Africa. We saw elephants, giraffes, lions, tigers, cheetahs and leopards which was cool. I don't think I could go back to Edinburgh zoo after that hehe. Jordi went on an epic trip one day that we didn't think he was coming back from! Only bad thing was I fainted twice on the hottest day but it wouldn't have been the same if I hadn't. Almost fell into a German couple's lunch the first time. Woke up with people pouring water over me and wondering where my hat was! I felt stupid but everyone was lovely. I'm sure there's lots more but that's all I can think of just now. I'll post some photos at some point instead.

I really enjoyed being away but in a weird way it's kind of nice to be back at home now.

It was Leah's last day at nursery today so there were lots of goodbyes, bucks fizz and cakes. I managed to hold the tears in till I got home!
I've had a busyish last few weeks. Happy to be going on holiday on sunday, it will be good to get away for a wee while :D.
