Edenbridge & Oxted Agricultural Show

Last weekend went to Edenbridge and Oxted show with Tom. The show takes place about two minutes from my house, and happens every year. The price has slowly crept up over the years which has meant that less local people visit, but it it still an incredibly popular show. Luckily for Tom and I, there's a reduced student price.

We both has so much fun walking around the stalls, seeing the animals, watching the shows and sampling delicious local food. Sadly I was/am still feeling a little under the weather so I didn't get too many snaps, but here are a few..

Seriously, has anyone else ever seen these before??

Hopefully I'll be back to my usual self soon, I feel like I've been ill forever.

How many people can say they've got a funny story about a postcard?

Soooo this post (along with one other) are going up a little later than I expected because I've been ill the last week and lying in bed watching Youtube videos was about the only thing I had energy for. Still better late then never right?

A couple of weeks ago I went on holiday to the Greek Island of Andros for two weeks with my family. It was lovely. What with having such a tough year sunning myself in Malta, I thought I deserved a two week holiday ;) I thought I would share with you a funny story that happened whilst I was abroad.

Being the lovely, amazing and brilliant girlfriend that I am (did I mention modest too) I thought I would send my boyfriend a postcard. So I poured my heart out onto the back of this card, put a stamp on it and passed it onto my parents to post for me when they drove into the local town. Only they didn't. What happened was, they drove to town with the car windows down on an incredibly windy day, and the postcard flew out of the window and over the mountains. 


So thinking at least I can tell a funny story when I go home, I wrote out postcard number two and personally posted it (parents just can't be trusted now-a-days). Then about three days later, on our departure day we thought we'd quickly pop down to the beach for an hour before leaving for the ferry. We got down to the beach my daredevil little sister started jumping off a 25 foot rock into the sea with her friend, my mum did some last minute sunbathing and my dad and I tried skimming rocks. When all of a sudden I hear my other sister shout.

I turn around and from under a rock my sister pulls out my original postcard. Seriously, what are the chances?! This poor postcard has been for quite a ride. The edges are ripped, there a holes and creases all over it, and we're pretty sure it tried swimming in the sea too. I packed the sorry looking postcard in my bag and brought it back to the UK. 

And now the postcard resides in my boyfriends bedroom on the shelf, where it has retired from travelling. But no one can deny it is a well travelled postcard.

My sister is AMAZING

A major congratulations to my sister who got into her first choice university last Thursday! So this September she will be heading off to Portsmouth University to study American Studies. Well done Abi :) I couldn't be prouder

To celebrate we went out for a family meal to our local Indian restaurant. And of course we had to take some photos before we left.

Yes thats right, my younger sister is taller than me (and I'm wearing ridiculously high heels, and she's only got mini ones on)

And then the photos got a bit weird…

My youngest sister had to get involved for some family weirdness

And then I attempted to photo an Outfit of the Evening, and lets just say it didn't go well. I felt so awkward in front of the camera, so if Emma or anyone else fancies giving me a few tips (aside from get a better camera, I'm working on it!) I'd love to hear. Here are my failed attempts:

What is my hand even doing in this photo?

Can you sense the awkwardness?!

Seeing as I've started..

Dress: Topshop
Shoes: New Look
Necklace: New Look
Bag: Urban Outfitters
Belt: Vintage from my Grandma
Coat: Not entirely sure as it was a present I received a few years ago,
but I think it was from a little independent
shop that has closed down now

P.s. Also a massive thank you to my sister Izzie, who has looked after me brilliantly today whilst I've been in bed feeling ill. She's a superstar!

My funny old job

My job is not what you would expect a 'normal' part time job to be. I don't waitress at a restaurant or bar, I don't work in a local shop, and I don't have a paper round. But here's what you can expect of me in my current job;

I can catch a duck with minimal fuss and show you how to easily tell the difference between the males and the females (and no, it's not dirty, minds out of the gutters!) 

I can do a three point turn with a tractor

I can perform a 5* demonstration on the correct way to wash your hands

I can tell you the difference between and comb and a wattle on a chicken

I can reverse a van with no back window

I can prep all the tills for the start of the day and cash up all of them at the end

 I can give you an educational 10 minute talk about pigs

On a similar note, I can give a piglet a world class belly rub (forget puppies, it's all about the piglets)

I can keep calm and aid anyone with a broken bone or serious head injury (and by this I don't mean I'm simply first aid trained, I actually have experience with both of these incidents) 

And lastly, I can make my way around a giant indoor play area completely blindfolded. 

I couldn't find a relevant photo, so here's one of me. And if you'd like to see more pictures of me pulling weird faces, follow me on Instagram

So, who can guess what my job is?

Delete Blood Cancer

I was flicking through an old Glamour magazine a few weeks ago and one of there adverts caught my eye. Normally I just skip past the boring adverts but something about this advert made me stop.

It was an advert asking people to register as stem cell donors. Every 18 minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with blood cancer. 70% of patients who require a stem cell donation fail to find matches within their family, so rely on generous strangers.
For many blood cancer patients a stem cell donation is their only chance of survival. Currently, only half of the people diagnosed find a matching donor.

So how can you help? By registering yourself as a donor you allow DKMS to keep a record of your details in their database and if you are matched up to a patient, you will be contacted and asked if you would like to donate.

2 Key Questions

1. How do I register
2. How do I donate

Registering is easy. You will out a simple online application form, and then they will send you a pack to your home address. Inside this pack are two cheek swabs. Just wipe both of these on the inside of your mouth and send them back in the free post envelope provided. Easy!

There are two ways to donate. The first is through your blood, and the second (less common) method is collecting bone marrow through your hip

For more information please check out Delete Blood Cancer. I've registered myself and the process is so easy. Your body will replenish and stem cells collected within 2-3days. I think it's amazing that we have a natural cure to this horrible cancer inside all of us.

Do something amazing today. Register now
