Owning A Volkswagen Golf For 3 Years

Wednesday, 23 August 2017 No comments
Way back in November 2015 my step dad had come into some money after he had been working so hard and very long hours to try and raise enough cash for himself to buy himself the car that he ever wanted. As my mums car was in need of some TLC and needed so much work done to it she decided to get rid of it as it wasn't worth the money and hassle to fix it as it would cost more then what my mum originally paid for the car in 2005, So while my mum was on the look about for a new car my mum was driving my step dad's car while he wasn't at work to get out and about before the car was in a car accident. As my mum couldn't carry on using my step dad's car as he would need it for work so when my step dad was at work me and my mum would be stuck indoors, The insurance company offered a small settlement fee so my mum could go and get herself a little run about until she found something that was more suitable. My mum managed to find a small Mercedes that was from 1999 witch she found on her way to Dursley one afternoon. The car only cost £1000 and it was only a run about until my mum found something more reliable, The car didn't even have a CD player and only a cassette radio and no clock (until we found it in the dashboard) the seats were really uncountable and when you drive over a bump in it you can feel the full impact and it was something unbelievable when i was in the car with my mum going all over these bumps you could feel everything! As my mum had the car for a while i was experiencing some back pain and i wanted to know what was causing the pain as some days it would be really bad and i have never ever suffered in back pain before, Anyways i had to go out and get some food shopping one day and i also had bad back at that time and i really didn't wanna go out as my bad was in chronic pain but as there was no food in the place i had to go and get some, When i stepped into the car it was very hard for me due to my bad back as my mum was driving to the supermarket she went over this speed bump and i felt the full force of it and plus i Hurd a massive crack in my back! I thought that i did some damage as the crack was so awful and i couldn't go and get my food shopping that i went out for in the first place as my back was completely gone! After a few days i went to see my doctor and he said that i had pulled a few muscles in my back and take some painkillers for the pain and rest as long as you can until you get back on your feet, The reason for me pulling my muscles was due to the seats in this Mercedes car and the seats and i just couldn't bare sitting in in those seats ever again. In the end it was time for my mum to go out and fund another car that was more reliable and had better features and seats.


When my mum bought that car she said at the time that she really didn't like it but that was the only car that was available in her price range at the time and she said that she wouldn't buy a Mercedes ever again not that model anyway! At time my step dad had bought himself a limited edition Clio that was a lime green colour and it only cost my step dad £500, and it got him from A To B and he was thinking about getting a new car as the car that he had was kinda small and it only had two doors so getting people in and out of the back was kinda hard and my mum hates 3 door cars. Sometime in November 2015 my step dad wanted to get his savings out that he had been saving for years so he could go and by his dream car a BMW X5! The process to get his savings was a nightmare as my mum had to fill out a lot of forms and do everything for my step dad to get his money paid into his bank as my step dad just didn't know how the process works and what was involved to get your life savings out of the savings pot and i must admit it took months for it to be all completed.
As the process was going on for the funds to be released my step dad spotted a second hand car market called Mill House Motors, My step dad had gone in there perviously to see what cars were available and to see if they had any BMW's X5's of course they didn't have any of those cars in stock and they were quite rare to get hold of one in a manual transmission as some of the models were only automatics, Anyways my step dad done a deal on a BMW 520 series and my step dad had also put down a deposit for the car to make sure that everything was ok with the sale and to see if anything needed to be repaired before picking it up the following week!
When my step dad told me that he had bought a BMW i didn't believe him at first and thought that he was telling me lies as i knew that he didn't have that much money to go and buy a brand new BMW as he didn't have that sort of cash in the bank, When i saw the information about what he had bought and the car then i believed him and asked when do you pick it up and he said on November 15th 2015 and i asked could i come and see the new car and he said yes!

When we drove up to the place my step dad said theres my car and i saw What!!! Thats my car over there and i said what that black BMW? and he said yes and i went OMG! it was so clean and shiny that i couldn't believe that we would be sitting in this car in a few minutes and it looked so comfy inside and it was so clean and professionallycleaned. As step dad was sorting out the paperwork and doing the deal my mum and I started to look at some cars as my mum needed a new car kinda bad due to the issues that she was having with the Mercedes and it was causing my mum and i chronic back pain and we also wanted a cd player in the car as tapes no longer exist for cars so it was the perfect time to get a new set of wheels. my step dad said if you need a car so badly that i will buy you one for your Christmas present and my mum said no i am fine and i will get one when i have the funds available of course my step dad couldn't refuse the offer and i said to my mum just go and pick something and then we went off and had a look at some cars, As me and mum was looking around this place there wasn't a lot of cars that we liked the look of only this his horrible Peugeot (and i really hate these cars as they have no power to them at all) and they were asking a lot for this car mind and it was so ugly and so small inside, My mum asked the owner for the keys to take a look and have a test drive and i can remember it was very small and cramped and i really didn't like it at all and i felt that the seats were so uncomfortable. When my mum started the car it sounded like the pistons was falling out of the engine and it just reminded me of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car makes when they drive it in the film it was a horrible car.

Suffering From Hemiplegic Migraines For 17 Years - How Do I Manage With Them ?

Friday, 11 August 2017 No comments
It has taken me a while to come on and actually write all about my Migraines and what really
happens during a attack, I have had a lot of people including doctors what type of Migraines that i actually do suffer with as they have never Hurd of them before and they also ask me all about the symptoms from each attack that i have. When i tell people about the symptoms when i am having a attack i explain to them that i am having a Stoke and i cannot do anything bar lying in bed in a dark room and they are very shocked to hear that i am having these symptoms with the attack and i also tell them that i cannot walk & talk and i go paralysed on the right had side of my body (either side) and i also loose my memory for unto 24 / 74 hours and they say you poor thing you must be so brave that you have these very rare Migraines and coping really well with them. Some people don't actually know what a Hemiplegic Migraine is as they are very rare and only a few thousands suffer from them and they also do have the symptoms of a stroke with them and it can be very scary for someone my age when i first experienced the attack almost 17 years ago.
I first experienced a Migraine sometime in 2002 - 2003 (I don't know the date for sure) when i started high school I was also moving house at the time also as we were fed up where we're were living and i was also being bullied so it was a good idea to move somewhere quite and peaceful,  As moving house is very stressful and it was a lot of hard work that we hadn't had no tea as we were busy sorting everything out that my step dad decided to go and get some Fish & chips and then this is when the trouble began for me. When i first told my mum that i had a headache (as i never had one before) and told her that my head was banging and i was also loosing my vision she told me that i was experiencing a Migraine attack and told me to go to bed in a dark room and take some pain killers,  It took me a while for me to get to sleep because the pain was so bad that i was crying in so much pain that i wanted my mum & dad so much, The pain was something that i had never experienced before and i couldn't call my mum as i wasn't able to speak as my mouth was numb and my right side of my body was also numb so i couldn't do anything for myself. My mum came up to check on me and to see how i was doing and i tried to explain to her that the pain was very bad and i couldn't move my arms and legs and it felt like i was paralysed from the waist down. My mum just couldn't understand why my Migraine was so bad and also why i was having these kinda symptoms from a stroke she was puzzled, My mum watched me for over a week and these attacks were coming on every morning around about 3.00 am and this made it impossible for me to attend school so my school life was sadly ruined for me since that very first attack.

As my Migraines wasn't getting any better my mum made me a appointment to go and see my doctor and to see what the next stages were as i was so fed up that i couldn't go to school and i was so unwell and i just wanted to get better more then anything, The doctor gave me some tablets to take (and i cannot remember what they were called) and they told me to take 2 tablets every night before bed and see how i get on with them and if they stop the attacks for me. Well after 2 weeks the medication didn't do anything for me and i had to go back to the doctors where they decided to send me to the hospital for further treatment and medication, When i attended the Children's hospital for my Migraines and they also asked me what was going on with the attacks once they come on and also the symptoms that i was suffering with them, I explained all this to the doctor and they gave me some more medication and asked me to come back in a few weeks if nothing had improved for me. Well the medication never worked for me and these attacks were very slowly getting me down and i just wanted to go to school and have a active life, The next time i went to see my doctor at the hospital they were going to do a MRI scan just to double check if my brain was ok and if there were any problems causing my attacks to be so bad, The MRI Scan that i had was a very fighting experience for me as i had never ever been in a scanner before (well my mum told me that i had one years ago but i don't remember it) and my mum was with me on the appointment as i was so scared about going in that tunnel on my own, The staff who was looking after me told me that my mum can come in and talk to me while i am having the scan done witch made me feel a bit better and getting on the bed was very hard for me and they put a cadge over my head and then i went into the scanner. When i was in the scanner all i was looking at was a square piece of metal that was placed on top of the scanner and i could still here my mum and the nurse who was taking my pictures and then the noise of that machine was very loud and at the time i wasn't given any headphones to listen to any music and the total time of the scan took over 2 hours and when i came out of the scanner i was so stiff that i had to be put in a wheelchair because i couldn't walk and if i have to have to go though a scan like this again i don't think i would because it is to fighting for me to go though all over again.

I think I will probably pick up a few pieces soon and with Superdrug having it on 3 for 2, it's hard to resist! A few of the items would also make perfect 'blog photo props' so of course, I am going to have to get some! Not to mention, I am literally redecorating my bedroom as we pink to Grey and Pink so this collection was made for me!

The 90s Tag

Thursday, 25 May 2017 No comments
Let’s do the 90’s Questions Tag, shall we? It’s a short questionnaire about my favorites from the 90’s. Are you ready? Let’s go!
01 What Kinda TV Services Did You Used To Have ?
We used to have the old Telewest Box (Now Virgin Media) and we had what was the first called cabled Television the box was huge and ugly looking, My mum took the first contract out for the services sometime around 1997 - 1998 and then we have carried on with them when they became Virgin media, The account is now in my brothers name and we have TV Phone & Broadband with them and the services are excellent since the early days of cable and satellite.

02 What Was Your Favourite Programme?
As there was so much to choose from back then and of course TV was so much better then today and there was so much to choose from, As i used to spend a lot of time with my dad we used to watch BBC two's comedy night witch was on Friday nights and this had a lot of comedy programmes including the Fast show , Shooting Stars & Red Dwarf. I used to watch a lot of comedy stuff when i was younger and Shooting Stars was my all time favourite show as i used to watch it every Friday night since i was 7, My dad also enjoyed the show as well and i just remember watching it with my dad and just laughing my head off as it was so funny all time time. At the time i didn't really understand the format of the show and i am now 28 i fully understand the full format of the show and how it all works and it is a piece of comedy history. As the BBC axed this show in 2013 i felt really sad as i grew up watching this programme and of course Vic & Bob and no one can ever replace this show and it was very well made and formatted as a game show. I still watch it to this day even if it is over 20 years old because it is brilliant.

03 What Was Your Favourite Toy ?
I had a original Fubry when they came out in 1998 and i can remember standing outside Torys R Us with my nan and my mum waiting to get one and it was a huge line, At time time i was 9 and this new toy was fantastic and something that i had never seen before and it was super cute as well. When i first saw it on the TV i thought it was amazing how you could actually speak to it and connect other Furbys to it it was amazing toy for a 9 year old. I also had a Furby baby that was also super cute and adorable as i loved my Furby so much!

04 What Was Your Favourite TV Commercial ?
It was the Spice Girls Impulse ad as it came onto TV i always asked my mum to go out and get me some as it was the best Impulse spray ever made, I just loved how the girls caused a massive car crash and all the cars fell on top of each other and people in the cars looking at the girls with no clothes on (Actually they did have a top on while they were filming it) and it was a excellent advert for a amazing product.

05 What Was Your Favourite Collectables ?
Everyone knows that the Spice Girls Merchandise was huge and everyone wanted a piece of it and i can remember collecting there amazing stationary range from Pens , Pencils , Pencil cases and tins as they produced a lot of stationary for school etc! I loved my long spice Girls pencil case and the pencils that came in a pack of 10 and 5 and there big rulers. I am also on the look about now for some more Spice Girls stationary as i used to love it as a kid and it was so well made as well.

06 What Was Your Favourite Game Console & Game ?
My Favourite game console of all time was my Playstation as it was something exciting for a 6 year old! My dad bought me and my brother to play with when it first came out and it was kinda expensive and at the time i already owned a Sega Megadrive and master system as i loved Sonic so we had 3 game consoles when the playstation arrived. I loved my games for the Playstation as they were so good  Crash Bandicoot was my all time favourite and i couldn't stop playing with it and then there are a few others that i loved too, SpiceWorld was a favourite of mine but i couldn't understand on how to play it and there was Porsche Challenge witch was a fun game but it did get really hard.

07 What Was Your Favourite Clothes Shop ?
That was Tammy Girl that used to be inside Etam downstairs and when i was a kid there clothes and shoes was amazing, My mum would always buy me some amazing clothes and shoes every month and it would last me ages, I had a amazing pair of platform sandals from there one year and they came in a plastic carry bag and they were lovely, I only wore them a few times and they came apart and i was gutted so much. My mum took them back and they gave me a new pair and they were the best pair of sandals that i ever had. Tammy Girl today is not the same and it is has been totally destroyed.

My Visits To BBC Television Centre 12.06.2009 + 12.06.2010

Monday, 8 May 2017 No comments
Back sometime in 2002 - 2003 when i was in my final years at school we had a 2 slot lesson called Asdan at this allowed us to anything that we wanted even making something from start to finish, I think these were called challenges and we had to color in the time clocks on a sheet to show how much we was progressing on each of our projects every week. I cannot remember what my first project was called and i have no knowledge of me even doing anything as sometimes i was taken out of my lesson to catch up on some work that i had missed before hand. I don't know what made me wanna do this as a project but i was so interested in the BBC and i wanted to do something about them on my Asdan project i knew that i would able to get a lot of information i started doing a lot of research on the company and i couldn't believe how much information that i did find every week it was tonnes, Once i had all the information and history on the company i started to look at there buildings and the one that i was very interested in was Television Centre in west London and i couldn't believe how big this place looked when i saw it for the first time online and i said to myself that i really wanna work there when i leave collage and hopefully work for the BBC. I had so much work to do on my Asdan project every week that sometimes i ended up taking the folder home and doing it because there was so much to do and i was also thinking was i gonna get this all done in time before my dead line, I ended up finishing my project a week for before it was due to be collected and i was so proud of my work and what i had achieved over 4 weeks of research and information that i found on this amazing company! I was awarded a top mark for my project and i was given something for my hard work (Cannot remember what it was now) all i wanted to do now that my project was finished i wanted to there main building in west London.
When i started collage in September 2005 i was given the chance to go and visit the BBC in West London by one of my teachers who was taking the group to the center and i asked if was allowed to go and they were so kind about it and said that there wouldn't be enough room in the mini bus and i was quite gutted but i knew before i finished collage i would take myself there, I asked my friends what the tour was like and how big it was in real life and they said it is the most amazing place in the world and they saw into the studios as well and i was gutted that i couldn't go with them. I saw the photos from the tour and they had a photo taken outside the huge steps outside where the main news area was.In 2009 my birthday was just around the corner and i wanted to go to London and spend it at Television center and i knew that i was letting myself into so much as i had never been to London on my own and also using the London underground all on my own, no one wouldn't come with me so i made myself go to the tour on my own and also i still can't understand how i managed to get to the center and use theunderground all by myself and got back home safely,

Spice Girls Impulse Spray

Do you remember?  it was 1997 and the Spice Girls exploded on the scene with there amazing products and there official Merchandise, I was only 8 years old when Spice main actually took off and i can remember listing to there hit single Wannabe when i was 6, I knew when the Spice Girls started to bring out some of there products between 1996 & 1997 i knew from that day in 1996 when Wannabe went to number 1 that these Girls had more to offer then just music. When i was 8 i was attending my special needs in 1997 when the Spice girls brought out there amazing products and i cannot really recall seeing any of there products in my local stores only the impulse Spice and there amazing lollipops by Chupa Chups witch i saw in my local co - op store, I didn't expect to have any of the Spice girls official merchandise and products as my mum thought that it would be kinda too young for me but my mum one day brought home some of this spray that was made my Impulse and she said that you will love it as it has Spice Girls written all over it, As i was unable to speak very well at the time my mum sprayed some on me and i said i love that scent and since that day in 1997 i have been a huge fan of the Impulse Spice spray for over 20 years. Impulse had made this stunning can of spray and it was very colourful and attracted for girls my age to have something that was made from the Spice Girls in a Spray witch absolutely smelt like heaven, I had a few cans of it in my childhood days and when my mum would go shopping she would always get about two or 3 cans as it was very cheap and it would go on and last me a few weeks at a time, There campaign for the product was very huge and very popular as there was also a few more products that was also added to the campaign including there famous 1310 - 2 Buffalo platforms witch was signed by all of the 5 girls for a Competition with impulse to give away to a lucky Spice Girls fan, I believe that Liz west who has the biggest Spice Girls collection has these and she was the lucky winner of this amazing price, I don't recall seeing a lot of the other products that they produced as i was reading that they also brought out a limited edition perfume edition in a glass bottle and also a roll on deodorant witch i would absolutely love in my collection that was only available in Mexico in 1997 so i really don't know if you can personally still get this on eBay as i would love one.
There is no other Impulse fragrance that beats this amazing product from the Spice Girls anywhere and also the scent reminds me of my childhood and when i smell it it just takes me back to the time when the Spice Girls was around and i can also remember seeing the advert for this and i absolutely loved it and how it was made,

I have been looking around for a new type of entertainment for my room and my TV for a while now as i used to have SKY as i found that this was a lot of money when i hardly ever used it, I only wanted SKY for basically for SKY 1 to watch the Simpsons UK Gold & Dave to watch my comedy programmes etc! At the time my brother decided that he would cut me off from his internet so i couldn't use it anymore and told me to get my own provider! As we already with Virgin Media it was very hard to get a new line installed when my brother is the account holder for the TV, Phone and internet so it wasn't easy. So in the end i decided that i would go with SKY for the TV and the internet and when i agreed that i would sign up to them i didn't realise that i would also need a land line installed for the internet to work, I wasn't very happy with this because there was a £15 per month line rental charge including everything else what was included. I originally started my contract with SKY on 14th November 2014 and i had the family bundle witch was about £35.00 per month with the internet and the phone line and all i paid was £10 for the set up as at the time i was still insolvent and getting things like this would be very hard but it was very easy and straight forward, My bills from that period went up and down all the time as you could add different packages and box sets all the time and my highest bill that i ever had was over £189.00 as i added F1 sky sports channel and that made the bill up to the amount witch was a lot of money! I fell behind with the account just before Christmas 2016 where there was a outstanding bill for £219.14 and in that time i fell ill with my depression and then i decided that i would rip it all out witch i did and a few weeks later my brother decided that he would allow me to share the internet once again.

Since then i have been using a Freeview indoor Ariel to watch TV as i have got a Freeview TV witch i didn't know nothing about, I have bought a few of these Ariels and none of them gives out a good signal sometimes i could get a really strong signal if i lean it out of the window and stay there all day and then if i move the Ariel it would loose the signal and i wouldn't be able to find a new place to put the Ariel. As my TV is on the wall just beside my window it is very hard to put a Freeview indoor Ariel by the window as my power leads are not long enough and sometimes i wish that i just stayed with SKY And just have the SKY Q installed as i was really upset about it. Within a couple of months of me watching no TV i sometimes used the internet to watch the things that i wanted to watch and then there would be my TV on the wall just doing completely nothing, As the TV is kinda special to me as it was a gift from my auntie who bought it for me back in 2014 for my SKY to be installed so its very special to me and it means a lot to me. As i was getting so annoyed  as i wanted to watch TV again i was gonna ask someone to come out and sort me out a Freeview Ariel to put outside on the roof and feed it back into my TV but no one in my family offered to help me with it witch i was so angry about as i could easily get a good picture on my TV with it. As time was going on i thought about getting one of these NOW TV boxes Apple TV's and i really didn't want one in the first place as they wouldn't be no good for me and i went into CEX  a few months ago and bought a Apple TV but it was the wrong one and i wanted the brand new one where you can download apps from the store! As i owed this money to SKY i was thinking about getting Virgin TV in my name and in my own bedroom where me and my brother had a massive augment over it and saying its still a waste of money and you will never watch it like the SKY (He has a point there) So i went into the store in town and got everything sorted out, They found me a really good deal and told me all about the terms and conditions and went ahead with the order, As there was already a Virgin media line in our house there would have to be a credit check done and a line check as my brother is the account holder and i said thats all fine. As i paid a deposit of £20 i just walked out of the shop and waited for the information to come back from Virgin Media.

Britney Spears Curious - The Collection

Thursday, 2 March 2017 No comments
I have been a massive fan of Britney Spears from a early age and i was so excited when she released her very first Fragrance in 2004 Curious, I was 15 when this amazing perfume came out and this was my very first item of perfume that i ever had from my amazing collection witch i have today, Britney had put in a lot of work into her perfume and i was very excited to try it for the first time, I can remember having a sample of this amazing scent and i was totally speechless and i wanted one straight away as it smelt so good, I had the original bottle that was 100ml witch came with the Atomiser. I think i had the gift set that came with the amazing Lather me up Shower gel , You're so smooth Body Polish and the amazing Deliciously whipped body soufflé. When i had the 100ml bottle with the Atomiser i always found it quite easy to use and sometimes it would stick and i would need to take the lid of so i could get some perfume out but saying that they have changed the bottles now and we don't have a issue with the Atomiser ones, I would love to have the Atomiser one again but i feel like that the Atomiser would get stuck again and i would waste a lot of perfume and they are not very easy to get these days, Curious has that scent of white floral scent and has notes are Louisiana magnolia, golden Anjou pearlotus flower, tuberosestar jasmine, pink cyclamenvanilla-infused musksandalwood and blonde woods, And Elizabeth Arden put a special vanilla infused musk in it and added Louisiana magnolia. Spears said that the magnolia reminds her of home. As this was Britney's very first fragrance Curious was released in September 2004, and was very successful internationally. It was the number one fragrance of 2004 in department stores, and in 2005, "Curious" was honored by the Fragrance Foundation as Best Women's Fragrance.

Britney made a Advert for the perfume he TV advertisement for Curious, "Hotel Rooms," was conceived at agency Goodby, Silverstein & Partners and directed by Dave Meyers through production company radical.media. The set was built on a stage instead of in an actual hotel. Actor Eric Winter plays Spears' love interest in the TV commercial.It starts off with Winter and Spears noticing each other before they go in their neighboring hotel rooms. Then, they are shown thinking about each other with Spears walking towards the door to Winter's hotel room. Then, fantasies of Spears and the latter having sex are shown mixed with things like a cartoon, a flower and a rodeo. It ends with Spears gazing at the camera. Britney also released some products that was sold individually for her Curious campaign and i can remember having the body Soufflé and i couldn't possibly live without it as it was one of the best body lotions that was out and it lasted all day long and it was quite simple and very easy to apply and i loved it so much that i wanted some more, My auntie had her first taste of it and she loved it as well and she has had a tube of the Deliciously whipped body soufflé now for a very long time and it is still going strong to this day and when i asked her for some i knew straight away that i needed some, It is very hard to find these products brand new in there boxes as it is about a few years old now but it is still going very strong and people are still love Britney's Fragrances  including me since the launch of Curious in 2004 she has released a load more that has been a huge success and even launched Curious in Control and & Curious heart (witch is very hard to find in 100ml) they are both the same Design of the original Curious bottle but has the colour changed from blue to black and pink (Curious in control) and pink and blue (Curious Heart)

Dr.Dre Beats Pill | Full Review

Wednesday, 18 January 2017 No comments
I have seen a lot of Dr. Dre products around for a while now and i wasn't in any mind of me ever gonna buy anything from the range as i would thought that i wouldn't ever use any of the wireless speakers and headphones that i have been reading are one of the best on the market, I have used so many headphones in my lifetime and every pair that i have ever had has even been poor sound quality and been very cheaply made, I used to love the JMC brand for headphones until i wanted something with more base and sound in so i then turned to Sony where they wasn't as good as i thought and then i decided that i would get my mum to buy me some Dr.Dre Urbeats for my birthday in 2014 and i can remember having a purple pair and they were very expensive back then until Argos had them in the sale and then my mum agreed that she would buy them for me, When i went into Argos to get them i was very surprised to see how well they were packaged for a pair of headphones worth over £100 and i was so shocked when i placed them into my computer that the sound quality was incredible and i was the best pair of headphones that i had ever owned in my whole life, I had the headphones for over a year util i decided to blow out the earphone where i needed to get some more and i was gutted when these headphones stopped working.


I couldn't really decide on what headphones that i wanted to get next as by now there was brand new Dr.Dre headphones out and i had seen some on the Apple site that they had some rose gold ones and they were even more expensive then the ones that i had originally! As i was waiting for the next Argos sale again i asked my mum if i could have some more for my Birthday the following year and she got me the same headphones but this time in Pink and they are still going strong to this day with no problems and i cannot live without my Dr.Dre headphones now as they are one of the best headphones in the world.

Looking Back At My Childhood Home

Friday, 6 January 2017 No comments
It has never been easy for me looking back at my previous homes and where i used to live as it does upset me so much as it also brings back a tonne of memories of me my brother & my mum and how things used to be like growing up (especially me) my dad always told me while i was growing up that this house would be mine and my brothers one day whatever happened, Well in 2000 my dad wasn't very well he had so much to cope with on a regular basis that he was feeling depressed and he wanted a life somewhere else, My uncle said to my dad come on and move to Wales to make a fresh start as my uncle encouraged him to make the move on 27th October 2000! When my dad told me that he was moving over 300 miles away it was very hard to cope with for a 10 year old and not being able to see your dad on a regular basics and it was very hard for me for a couple of years until i was old enough to understand why my dad needed to move away! This house does hold so many special memories as this is the house that i grew up in between 1989 until 2000 and so much happened in this house over the years and i really don't know where to begin, My mum had her own card business that she ran for a few years and we had a extension built to store the cards and paperwork that was needed to run the company and to my surprise that extension is still there to this day and the previous owners has made it in to a living room complete with a open fire, I used to visit my dad every day after school and spend the night with him when my mum would come and pick me up in the morning for school and this was something that i will remember for a very long time as we used to do everything together and it was wonderful, Me and my dad would watch everything together even comedy programmes and it was truly special. I can also remember that my dad had a heart attack in this house and i was so brave that i called the ambulance to him and the paramedics had to put him on a stretcher and took him to hospital and it was a frightening experience for me at a young age but i am so glad that i did what i did and saved my dads life.
