There are 50 of you!?!


I have 50 followers?!

Yaaaaaaaaaaaay *happy dance*

Thanks you guys :D
Blogging was something I've wanted to do for a looooooooong time, but I was always a bit self-conscious about it for some reason.  But I'm so glad I started! I've been introduced to a whole new community of cyber-geniuses!

Seriously, all the blogs I follow, and even some of the ones I don't, but am meaning to when I have more time to commit to blogging (which is about now I suppose!), leave me in awe and inspire me for my blogging!
So round of applause and pat on t'back for you guys! *Applause*

A few months ago, I was thinking that I need to go around and visit all of my followers blogs and go explore some new blogs to broaden my blogging horizons, but I was struggling to keep up with the blogs I regularly follow due to university work, but now that uni's over I am completely free to browse and explore to my hearts content!

So if you guys think there are some blogs out there that are up my alley, then please do recommend!

My last day of Uni was this thursday just gone, and I'm so relieved!
Finally,  the hard graft is over and done with!

I will definitely miss Leeds, it's such a brilliant city, and an amazing university to study at (driving in the city centre, however, is a completely different story! one way systems everywhere!!)
And I'm really gunna miss my friends.  I've made some friends at uni who I will certainly know for the rest of my life (I hope!).  In fact my best mate from uni, Panjy, is coming over to stay at mine sometime next week :D

But the timing is perfect! I'm sure all my non UK followers will have read on other british blogs that the weather has been amazing! It's like being on bloody holiday!

In Manchester we've had highs of 28 degrees C! (I have no idea what that is in Fahrenheit... 80 something?)
But I tan So quicklyyyyy It's annoying! And I don't tan very elegantly.  I'm brown already, so when I tan, I just go even browner, but like dirty it looks like I've not washed my face or something :/
It isn't exactly a fabulous look......

Ok I don't look that scary.......

But yes, I have lots of plans for what I want to do now that I'm free in summer including:

  1. Strawberry picking (it's cheap and cheerful :D and the fresh berries taste amazinggg)
  2. get a pedicure (cuz fugly feet do not look good in summer sandals)
  3. go skydiving/bungee jumping (this is not realistic as I am beyond skint)
  4. ride in a hot air balloon (this is slightly more realistic, as we booked this last year sometime, but it's been cancelled about 3/4 times as the weathers always been poops)
  5. visit a bird and/or animal sanctuary (I wanna capture these lovely creatures in their natural element)
  6. Visit as many beautiful parks/beaches as I can in the nice weather (beaches are tough due to where I'm located, the nearest beach is Blackpool, and I'm tired of visiting that dirty, tired excuse for a beach! recommendations are welcome :D)
  7. Bake and cook more
Those are just a few things I can think of from the top of my noggin.  You guys got anything good planned for summer? 



  1. We have a smaLL bird sanctuary nearby, but I haven't been there in a couple of years. By couple I mean probably ten, or five couples.

    1. Five couples! I like the way you phrased that Mr Esbboston! We don;t have any near us, most are down south near London, so would be a day trip :D

  2. Great hear from you and, yes, the news about the UK's awesome weather has made it to some of the blogs. Must be wonderful and I hope you have a great summer.

    I've only been following you for a short while so I'm not familiar with what style blogs you enjoy. However, just going by the ones in your list I would suggest these:

    There are many more good ones on my blog list if you need more.

    By the way, my very favourite thing on your list for the summer is picking strawberries! I've never had a chance to go berry picking of any sort lol... sounds wonderful!

    And in closing, I'm one of the contestants that is competing for a Kindle on Pish Posh's blog. The voting ends Monday morning. If you are inclined to vote, here's the link:

    All you have to do is scroll down to the bottom of the page - and then click on the "vote" link which shows underneath each contestant's image.

    I would really appreciate it, thanks!

    1. Ahhhh your amazing! That was very helpful thank you :D I'll check them all out.

      Strawberry picking or any berry picking is something I recommend you do at least ONCE in your life! Fresh strawberries taste the best seriously.

  3. Uggg... I have no exciting plans this summer. I suppose something exciting might happen by pure happenstance, but if it does, it may be something bad. So perhaps I am better off where I am. Congratulations on the 50 followers! They seem to be the actual, real followers, and not the "you follow me, I follow you" type, which makes it more impressive.

    1. Hey, positive thinking! Something amazing might happen to you!
      I know I'm so grateful that people actually visit and read my random chit chat :D

  4. I'm hoping to just survive the harsh summer months. I work in reverse to "normal" people. It's the heat I can't stand, not the cold. I don't really tan either. I grow more pale, but my skin still feels like it's burning. But congratulations on reaching 50 followers, and on getting out of university alive :)

    1. I hate it when it's too hot. Around 23degrees is perfect for me! Anything more and I feel like i'm melting! My best mate is the same as you and LOVES winter! So much that she's determined to have a winter wedding when she finally catches a man to marry :P

  5. Hello Aysh,
    Oh,great! You have so many plans to do! Very adventurous and brave! I am afraid of height, so I cannot imagine what bungee jumping is like. Enjoy your holidays!

    1. Aww really you are afraid of heights!? I'm a thrill seeker so I kinda like stuff that gets my adrenaline going! Thank you and hope you enjoy yours too :D

  6. That has to be the best picture ever posted on a blog. I love it.
    Sounds like you will have a very productive summer. Outside of work, work, and more work, I am doing very little. Maybe taking a trip to Oregon, whale watching, and, at some point, catching my breath.

    1. It is amazing, is it not? I want his confidence, but that's all I want from him.
      Whale watching sounds awesommeeeee! very envious of you lady if you do that :D

  7. Congrats. Keep up the good work and you'll reach 100 in no time.

  8. congrats on finishing uni, now thats a great achievement! u r very adventurous, loving the summer to do list...Enjoy you've definately earnt it!

    1. Thank you :D Can;t wait to start on the list!

  9. Congrats on 50 followers. Maybe you should spend more time blogging now that you're free. :P

    1. Sir, yes sir! That's another thing to add to my list of things to do over summer; BLOG REGULARLY! :D
