{This Week}

I have so much to write about but I’m not sure I can remember all the bits I want to include.

Bullet Points are the way forward for now. Starting with a negative.

Earlier this week I was reading Web Time Wasters on Yes and Yes. I clicked on a link about Child Brides. It broke my heart! It’s so sad that there are girls who are as young as 5 or 6 getting “engaged”. There are girls as young as 13 being married. It kinda boggled my brain – My friend’s daughter is 5 – I can’t even comprehend her getting engaged/married at that age – to her marriage is when a mummy and daddy love each other – or Prince Charming meets the Princess and they live happily ever after. My “little sister” is 12 – (she’s not really my sister but she’s as good as a sister so I look at her that way). She’s sitting her end of year exams this week and again I can’t even imagine that in those cultures she’d be getting married.

I’m not trying to dismiss it because it is serious and it does happen. Let’s move onto the positives.

Next weekend is Birmingham Vintage Fair. I’m going which is really exciting. You can find out more information here, pop by if you’re in the area.

I’ve been knitting loads and at some point this week will be making candles. It’s the first craft fair I’m going to as myself rather than helping out my Mum. I’m not sure which of the things I’ve made will sell the best but I’m hoping to make enough to cover lunch lol.

My Mum got me two DVDs for my birthday and somewhere along the line Mum had put them in a safe place and forgot to get them out again for my birthday. She found them on Thursday, so in the last few days I’ve watched a whole season of Pushing Daisies (Well 9 episodes it’s not loads) and Long Way Down (Ewan MacGregor and Charley Boorman go on a road trip from John O’Groats, Scotland to Cape Town, South Africa) while knitting and things like that.



This evening I went to see my friends Suzie and Alex do a concert. Their album is available on iTunes and through their website (I think if you go through their website then more money goes to the two events they are raising money for rather then iTunes where Apple take a chunk.)

So I’m sure i had more to write but I’m not really sure.

      I don’t mind Handbags and Gladrags but it’s a cover rather than one of their own songs. It was by Chris Farlowe then covered by Rod Stewart.

    I am doing a research paper on human sexual trafficking. I’m going to use the article in my research paper. The stories break my heart. I will leave my opinions of the religion mentioned in this article off your blog, don’t want to raise an argument here. But thank you for posting this: 1) it needs to be shared far and wide 2) I will be using it..

    I hope your sister does well in her end of year of exams.

    I hope you do well at your vintage fair. It sounds like fun.

    And finally, I love Pushing Daisies. It was such a fun show and I wish they’d bring it back!

    Godspeed at the fair.

      Hi Lily,

      Thank you for the comment. You’re right it does need to be spread far and wide so that more people stand up and say no it shouldn’t be happening.

      Pushing Daisies is cool. I love it 🙂 I just finished Season 1 this weekend, going to get Season 2 at the end of the month I think.
