Oh dear, it's been quite a while since I blogged on here hasn't it?!
Oops. I started a Tumblr blog, so basically sit for hours blogging and reblogging beautiful photos of places, animals, tattooed people, bands, pretty hair, nails and other pointlessly attractive things.
But I miss real blogging, so I'm back. Shall we start with a recap?
Well, since May, I went to Austria with my boyfriend for Springfestival, which was amazing, I started doing some extra work at my mum's nursery and love it, the kids are so cute and so far love me!
What else... boyfriend and I are still going strong, he's adorable! He bought me a R4 card last week for my Nintendo, out of nowhere just gave me it in a little pink box, loaded up with games and songs, such a sweetie.
I'm probably missing loads, but that's it for now!

It's official, Britain is bracing itself for a two-week heatwave! The past few weeks' weather has been hit and miss, but a warm blast sweeping over from Europe could see the hottest May on record if temperatures soar as expected.
It's going to stay cool this week, but by Saturday forecasters believe that temperatures will rise and the next two weeks will see a 29C average.
When the weather got so unseasonably lovely in April I went out and bought a few new women's summer dresses but it's been a bit too chilly recently to wear them, so now I'll get the chance to show them off.
The news doesn't say much about what's going to happen after this two week heatwave, hopefully it won't cool down too much, it's supposed to be summer soon anyway - just keep the heat up!

Everyone laughed at that episode of Friends when Ross - ever the sensible goat - said that if they won the lottery he'd invest his share.
Well I've come into a bit of money, not a lot, but a bit, and am thinking about my best options of what to do with it. I don't want to blow it all on something outlandish, that's not me at all, and I wouldn't mind taking a nice trip somewhere, but apart from I don't really want for anything, so I'm thinking about investing it.
There are a lot of options for investing out there, from the more hands-on investment like property, to companies that hold your money for you and do all the investing themselves.
The latter appeals to me much more, and I've set up meetings with a few personal wealth management and stock broking companies Rowan Dartington and Barclays to see more about my options.
I feel so sensible! But a big blow-out would feel like such a waste of a great opportunity.

Music speaks a universal language. It is an art form that is common to all cultures and helps bringing people together from all over the world by eradicating their differences. Consider the example of the Indian sitar maestro Pundit Ravi Shankar collaborating with the British rock sensation The Beatles.
Also, music is an ever popular art form; people still continue listening to Mozart and Beethoven even in the twenty first century. Also, musical tastes do not confirm to any one particular culture. An Englishman can enjoy jazz music of Duke Ellington as much as any Indian would like to listen and enjoy the flamenco music of Paco de Lucia. A lot of American bands in the sixties like The Beatles and
The Doors were influenced by eastern sounds. Music has also become an important tool of protest. A lot of American folk singers used music as a form of protest against the American war in Vietnam. These protest singers like Pete Seeger, Arlo Guthrie and Joan Baez became worldwide icons of peace. There protest songs were not only relevant to the then American scenario but are sung even now.
Music plays an important role in other visual arts like cinema and the opera. Such was the impact of music on the masses that a whole new genre of films, called musicals, was born catering to the popular demand. Music played a major role as against plot, Sound of Music became a raging international success, while people like Fred Astaire became stars overnight.
