My Grandma

My Grandma was a amazing woman. She would lift the mood with her entrance, everything about her was beautiful; from her smile to her heart. I am a passionate believer that I can learn good character traits of everyone, everyone has a heart right? Well my grandma was one of the few people in my life who i could learn everything from. She had been through tough times, stayed strong throughout. she brought up two amazing daughters (one my mum!). Both who possess some of her traits- warm hearted and peaceful yet fabulously full of life. My grandma is my inspiration and just because she died a year ago doesn't mean I dont think of her, doesn't mean I dont miss her anymore, and it definitely doesn't mean she stopped being my role model. She was strong and happy till her death, happiness is contagious.

I have a beautiful friend, Isabella, who I have started running with on Sundays. When we started last Sundays run I was feeling a bit sad and all over the place. And as soon as I felt the fresh cold Cornish air whipping against my legs I felt I could breath. I could take a bit of time to think about everything. So I put my headphones on, turned Florence an the Machine up to full and just ran. I thought about things I had lost, things I had gained. Thought about my family, about my friends. I thought about memory's in the past and memories I hope to gain. And sure enough I found a smile spread upon my face. While smiling at my smile I accidentally changed my song onto a very loud Beyoncé song and burst into song and a dance. The view must of been great; the beautiful sea and then a running girl panting and a girl running and dancing. I think I sometimes forget where I am when a good song comes on. We ran across the connected beaches and then stopped for a bit on the other side and i flopped upon the slightly damp ground and took my shoes off. My toes curled into the sand and a shiver of cold shocked my body. I lay there while issy did star jumps and watched the clouds curl around one another like a romantic tango. I sat up and looked at the sea and thought to myself, I am so lucky, this is so beautiful. Then the song changed from a calmed Ben Howard to 'Yeah yeah by Willy Moon' and I jumped up and clicked my fingers and danced till a man and his dog came and then we ran home. The shower afterwards was a slice of heaven.

I have never overly celebrated Halloween but this year me and Matthew did some pumpkin carving. I loved it! I wanted to do something more original than the traditional scary face. So three hours down, with a painful wrist and smelling like pumpkin I had created my carved pumpkin, me and Matthew were very proud of ours.

Busy season

I have been really busy recently, my mind all over the place. I took Fine Art and the amount of work is, we'll its a lot. I have to balance this work with that work and think about when and where I can do it. This is definitely the reason I haven't posted in a while. After a lot of stress Matthew said to me, right that's enough and he stopped me for a day. Took me to a cafe for a hot Chocolate and then a beautiful wintery walk around the Boating Lake. I love the way the cold air freezes my breath, leaves my heart frozen and my fingertips untouchable. I love how it does those things but we all get exited by it. 2 months till Christmas Is a exiting thought too.

Note to self, start buying presents!

This September has been slightly overwhelming, started college in which I started with a struggle. People kept telling me, it will get better Minnie; it did. I have made a lovely group of friends and my lessons are all perfect for me. However with me off to college I left my best friend Darby behind. So we had a sunny September meet up in which we sat on a field and ate burger sweets and stared at the clouds. I also went up country to Woking in which I saw my other best friend Lilly, the weekend was perfect, filled with singing, tap dancing in topshop, brilliant breakfasts and filling a room with balloons and dancing to Taylor Swift. Septembers sadly going swiftly.

Oh and Matthew passed his driving test, and I have started 'minniesmark' in which I leave a paper bird everywhere I have Been (busses, classrooms etc)

London love at the Paralympics

I love London, its a beautiful city through my eyes which makes you feel so alive. Me and my boyfriend and our friend Robert got tickets for Paralympics (wheelchair basketball), we took a far too long coach there over night to London, and a horrible even longer coach home. The coach was tiring and uncomfortable and very cold, suppose thats what you get for £10 though. The journey home was far worse then the one to London though. We were all tired from barely any sleep the night before and walking around London all day. Robert had horrible back pains, Matthew had a horrible headache the whole way home and as for me I felt sick and had blisters all over my toes (note to self, floral plasters are pretty but not helpful in time of need). However when we got to London my heart burst into song and euphoria pumped through my veins. London is beautiful and I almost feel like its my home yet I have never lived there! Paralympics was amazing, quite thrilling, especially when you have a 10p bet with Matthew. Overall a brilliant day, now cant wait till my next London trip in december with Matthew however this time we will go in his car Nora instead of a coach (road trips rule, coaches dont).

Me and Robert

Chop Chop Chop

When I was 4 I had a short bob and ever since then I have been growing my hair. It has grown past my belly button and has kind of become another limb to me and i would look ridiculous without it. Yesterday I took the chop. Not length but fringe, scary, as soon as my sister holly chopped the first bit my heart sank. What had i done? I have ruined my hair? 12 years of growing gone on one crazzyy thought. But after all that worrying I do like it a little, still not 100% sure if I like it yet. Matthew loves it and apparently I am not allowed to grow it out so I suppose that is that.
