From the moment I was born, up until 2009, I lived in the borough of St Helens, Merseyside (north-west England). In 2009, I moved to Huyton village (in the outskirts of Liverpool). I have lived within this 6 mile radius all of my life.
Last night I decided to start making a list of all the important, and wonderful places to visit in the area. Museums, historical buildings, green spaces, and more. I have visited many, thanks to my dad who loved to teach me the history of where I live, but there are still so many places that I have not been.
If you live in, or know the county of Merseyside, I would love to hear about your favourite places. Do you have a favourite park? Is there a particular building, or museum that you enjoyed visiting? Do you know of any “hidden gems” in the area? Please comment with one, two or more of your favourite Merseyside places, so I can add them to my list.
As soon as I have compiled my list, I shall post it here.
So my darling hubby has decided to take one of his passions to the extreme, and in doing so, he’s helping a fantastic charity.
Macmillan know how a cancer diagnosis can affect everything. So they’re there to support you and help you take back some control in your life. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk, they’re there.
No one should face cancer alone. So when you need someone to turn to, Macmillan are there. Right from the moment you’re diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, we’re a constant source of support, giving you the energy and inspiration to help you take back control of your life, and feel more like yourself again.
My hubby has decided to take part in a 24 hour online gaming marathon, and will be “live streaming” the session via the xbox one app, “Beam”. The session will start at midnight on 2nd going in to the 3rd of June, and will end at 23:59 on 3rd June.
So this is a post asking for donations. Not for me – not for my hubby – but straight to this wonderful charity, so they can continue with their excellent work.
Even if you can only donate a pound, as the saying goes – “every penny helps”.
Please click here to make a donation.
So, my husband received the Ice Bucket Challenge from a friend, to raise awareness for MND (Motor Neurone Disease – It’s called ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) in the USA I believe).
It’s an excellent cause, and the MNDa is busy researching, funding and supporting those who suffer with this life-threatening disease.
My great, great uncle (ready for it? My dad’s, mum’s, mum’s, brother) had MND, and I was so lucky to have known him in my life, even though it was for just a few short years. I believe I was about 7 or 8 when he passed away.
My husband accepted this challenge, and he donated some money too. In turn, he nominated three others to do the same. I have to admit that I was very surprised that he didn’t nominate me… It’s only a matter of time before I am nominated, and if I am being perfectly honest, I can’t wait to show my support.
Now, before you view the video of my husband (I will post my video when I get nominated by someone), please take a moment to donate to this amazing cause.
Take the Ice Bucket Challenge and make your donation by texting ICED55 £5 (or other amount) to 70070 (only available in the UK).
Thank you for your support xx
I made a post on 21 June 2013 called To vlog or not to vlog, where I contemplated making a vlog. The only problem I had was the topic in which to vlog about!
Well, 9 months down the line, I’m still clueless about what topic to vlog about, but I am determined to make at least one vlog within the 40 days of Lent.
So… What should I vlog about?!?! Ideas! Please..!!!
Ok. And to now stray away from the topic all together, have you ever stared at a word for long enough that it just doesn’t look right? It’s just happened to me. Just look at the word help.
Help. HELP. help. hElP. HeLp. hELp. hElp. heLp. helP. HelP.
No matter how it’s written, it looks wrong. Can you even misspell the word help? Help!
