Today I'm packing to go and visit my dad in Cardiff,Wales. I am having Christmas with him this weekend and then Christmas with my mum on the actual day.
After 2 hours of packing, snow started falling which could mean I can't make the journey. Yes 2 hours worth of packing just for a weekend, I get really into packing, everything has to be organised down to a T. Nothing can be missed, I'm such a believer in bring more just in case. You never know what could happen over the period that your away.
Hopefully the next time I post will be in coming from Cardiff.
Today I went to watch my younger brother sing in his school carol service. I came away feeling very festive and just in time too because when I got home I had an invitation to a Christmas meal with some of my friends, we have been promised cracks. For me the best thing about cracks is the brightly coloured over-sized hats that are inside that family members force you to wear for a laugh.
Nothing says Christmas more than a little bit of harmless fun.
Yesterday I travelled up to Birmingham with my textiles class to go to the Clothes Show Live. The day was very long but worth the while. The show itself wasn't what I expected but as a first time goer I suppose I should have been open minded.
It wasn't really a fashion show but more of a dance show which was pumped up by a couple of hot guys with 6 packs dancing around without their tops on. I'm not one to complain, who doesn't want to see a hot guy without his top on ? but I felt some of the women were going abit over the top.
I also got scouted by the modelling agency Select, which was a pleasant surprise as I turned up with bed hair and no make-up on. I have never really wanted to be a model but it is a compliant that a strange thinks I have the potential to be one. I will keep you all posted on whether or not they contact me.
I got some great freebies but the shops that were there weren't my kind of style so I ended up not buying anything. It was a really good day out and hopefully I might be able to go again another year.
