NY, movies and snow

Heya Blogland, 

Well I am much better, whoop whoop. My week has been spent recuperating and basically sleeping and watching DVDs. You know me, I won’t let a bout of illness stop me from watching a DVD or 10 lol.

Amazing news my sister came back this week after a short getaway to New York. She is now engaged!!! Soooo chuffed for her it’s been what feels like forever. Her and her Boyfriend/Fiancée have been together for 5 years yes that’s right 5 years. But what I think is great is that they have taken their time and not rushed into it. Can you imagine getting married really quickly and then discovering that, that person irritates you intensely? So yeah it may have taken them 5 years to get engaged but they know they actually like each other and can live with each other and any annoying little habits they have. I cannot wait! I’m the Maid of Honour which I’m really looking forward to, Candice will obviously have to help me because if I’m honest I don’t really have a clue what I have to do lol besides the excitement of getting to choose dresses :). 

Megan and James brought me back, Minnie mouse dressed as the Statue of Liberty how cute! They also brought me back a empire state building as well which I love because I have a few monument ornaments from places family and friends have  been because they know I can't go abroad so they bring me back so it's like I've been there :)
Me and my sister went and saw ‘Les Miserables’ this week and it feels like I’m the only person to be disappointed with it. Everyone everywhere is raving about how amazing it is and Megan and I were pretty bored for at least the first hour of the movie. I think the things that contributed had to be that firstly I do not like a movie where it’s solely singing, I think I was a little naive going in thinking there was going to be at least 5-15mins in-between songs where people wouldn’t be singing but boy was I wrong! Then there’s the fact that Anne Hathaway isn’t my favourite actress and to be honest whenever I watch a movie with her in I feel uncomfortable, it’s just something about her acting I don’t know why. But if you like a movie with solely singing then it’s probably something you’ll enjoy.

Then yesterday happened. The UK has been hit with some snow, I really hate snow! Snow is not something I have ever particularly enjoyed. Every time I go out in it I always end up on my arse. Luckily I haven’t had to step one toe outside since it settled and for that I am thankful. Don’t get me wrong it looks very pretty (when no-one has played/walked/mushed it up) but it’s dangerous and it’s starts to melt then it refreezes and turns into a death trap on the roads. The UK just can’t deal with snow, every year they tell us they are prepared for any and all eventualities but then it comes and the planes stop, the trains stop, cars have no clue how to navigate it and the entire country seems to come to an utter standstill. I couldn’t even get to work today because my sister couldn’t get the car out of where she is, her street is snowed in and I can’t walk in the snow to get to the bus stop. Snow also poses a problem for me in the sense that walking is hard for me anyway but add snow on top and you may as well have an ambulance following me. It makes it ten times harder to walk for me which is less than ideal.   
Apparently it was lol
Figuring out whether it's worth it

My next blog will likely be Thursday/Friday as my exercise test has been rebooked for Thursday that is so long as the snow doesn’t pose any travel issues. 

I would just like to say a big massive hello to all my new followers *waves* I hope you enjoy my blog.

I hope you’ve all had a fab week wherever you are and I will see you next time.

    1. Hey Lori,

      It won't be for a few years atleast because they are planning on buying a house this year so they'll need a few years to save for the wedding as well. LA looks so nice I would love to go over there when I get my transplant I will probably do quite a few countries it would be AWESOME!

      Stacie xoxo
