31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 28 - What are you looking forward to?

There are lots of things I am looking forward to, but then again, the things I can't wait for are the things that make me really scared. 
Like moving out and buying our own house. It's not too far away, touch wood, and I just can not wait to have my own house with my own everything. It's just going to be amazing. 
Yet very, very, scary. 

So I guess moving out would be one thing.

Something a little sooner, will be that I'm looking forward to when my friend has her baby! I can't wait to meet him, and be able to help (as best as I can...which is not great lol!) and look after (with the supervision of my wonderful fiance) and just coo over him! It's going to be exciting times!

31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 27 - Post your favourite recipe

Now, I can't do this one. Because I don't have a recipe. Because I don't cook. Because I can't!!

All I can say is.... my favourite thing to .. prepare... is fresh pasta ravioli with garlic and tomato and herb sauce!

31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 26 - An old photo of me

Me and my little brother Andy. He was such a cute baby! I kinda wish he was that young now. I would definitely have appreciated him more than I did when I was 6. He's a total douche now!
Anyway, this looks like we were on our way to or from a family holiday. Oh those were the best days. I do miss them sometimes.

Definitely a Gemini

Yes, there are lots of documents and journals and whatnot that are either proving or disproving theories of star signs and such...but I don't care. I will go with the vague definition of a Gemini and I will agree that that is what I am. Why? Because I have two ways that I want to be. I have two ways of everything.

In one way, I would love to lead the unconventional life, I would love to travel, have a menial job that I really really really enjoy (like a vet nurse or something to do with writing) and go out on wild nights out, raves festivals the lot. Basically, I would like the rockstar life without being a rockstar (although, being a rockstar would be so amaze-bells!)
And then in the other, I love the idea of having a husband, a house, a car, a really good job that's interesting, and going on holiday one to two times a year. A rather comfortable conventional life. The one that I'm 2/4 of the way through - and loving it by the way. It is scary and exciting, and although I'm missing a few nights out, and skimping a bit on the luxury things, it will all pay off in the long run - when we get our house, we can have parties every weekend if we wanted! I had my fun when I was 18-21, and although I do enjoy a night out (when illness doesn't strike!) I do love a good night in with friends or my fiancĂ©, a good film, a pimms or a beer, and then just falling asleep whenever. And we went to blooming Rome this year! I mean, saving and a holiday is so good, we're so lucky. We're even looking to go away next year to somewhere in Italy by the coast, or one of the Greek Islands. 

I always have two ways of looking at things. I'm always making one point, and then making another one that's the opposite of the first! I could go on about how much of a Gemini I am, but I will be here all night! I just wanted to write a note on the two lives that I want: one that I'm living, and the one that will never be. But I'm OK with that, because in a small way, I can incorporate both! 

So, in addition to the plan (holiday, house), the most recent development in my life is a brand new car! Yes, I bought a brand new Toyota Aygo on the weekend just gone! It's so cute, I can't wait to get it! 
Pictures to follow!

31 Day Blog Challenge: Day 24 - My Favourite Childhood Book

My favourite book when I was a child? I really can't pick one! I had lots of books when I was young, and I had lots of favourites. These are my top four:
