operation garden begins...

So I decided yesterday that over the break I would fix up our planters out back on our little patio and make a nice garden.

This turned in to operation make a garden today instead. So I cleaned up some leaves and then went to poundland (which is the dollar store equivelent over here) and purchased some seeds and bulbs.

Lets get one thing straight I have never gardened in my life nor do I claim to have one of these...

But I did try... So I will give some updates if my plants actually start to grow...
... my garden better be elegant...
And here are some pics of the planters I cleaned out and put some seeds in...

so happy gardening to me :) hopefully I'll get some flowers popping up in the next few weeks :)

To anyone that still reads my blog...

I have been neglecting my blog for osmetime now... I just couldn't find any motivation to post at all. Plus to be honest my life is not the adventure I had hoped it would be living here in London. Well actually it has been a learning adventure for me mostly. Learning how to deal on my own and learning some financial lessons the hard way...

But I have decided that things are going to be good from here on out...

I have started working out again since the weather has been nicer and the daylight is actually around for longer. I feel more motivated to do things. I have started doing some walking in the graveyard again... haha (sounds weird) and hopefully I can get back in to running as well. I also started this video workout...
The 30 Day Shred!
And let me tell you it is tough. I have done it twice now and my body is crying the next day. So hopefully I can do the video, some walking, and maybe some skipping too.

School is going well it's just so busy lately. I'm in the last 2 weeks of term 4 then I have a solid 2 week break in April which I can't wait for. And then I'm in the home stretch! WOOO it will be the last 2 terms of the year till summer! Then I can get my butt out of here before all the Olympic craziness starts! AND in April I have a couple visitors :)
Christina and Jenny!
I am so excited to see both these girls!
I have to say that I have the best friends in the world. I have come to realise by being away from my friends how amazing they all are. I mean 4 of them have flew 8 hours across the ocean to see me. That to me is so awesome. I am so thankful to have them in my life and very lucky. Plus to get messages all the time from them and on my birthday to receive soo many cards from all those girls. I really do have the best friends ever.


I cant wait to go out and drink a pint of green pear cider!
