Unnecessary photo of Ziggs and I
It's been a very busy year- especially to say it's only February! Every time I sit down to start writing; I realise that I have about five minutes before I need to be out again, leaving my mind a little jumbled. I wanted to write something beautiful to make up for my slacking, but the best we're getting right now is a word vomit. We do our best :)

Ella's wedding in January
 I'm at that stage of having a cold where everything just seems that bit gloomier. It's not a very nice place. I was making a cup of tea earlier and it felt as though it took so much energy. I'm also getting about twelve hours of sleep haha.

My big sister Ella got married at the start of the year and my brother engaged too. I've had my second set of mocks, which went okay, but I'm really not enjoying school all that much. 

I've been invited to an interview for an apprenticeship at a travel agency, which I'm really looking forward to and I'm also decided on which sixth form I'd go to otherwise. I'm feeling very torn between the two options, but I'll just have to see how the interview goes. 

NYE with Leah- looking far
more tipsy than I was (honest!)
We're working on an extract of Macbeth at drama, with yours truly being everybody's favourite equivocator. I've started going to some other youth groups with Leah (her blog's pretty groovy), which have definitely filled my week :)

I've been alternating between the library and work on saturdays, which has meant I'm always doing something different and meeting new people. A lot of the people I volunteer with are older than me, but I like that. It's a welcome break from school haha :)

I'm not giving you any context on this one haha
I've signed up for NCS over summer, as well as Brighton for a week with my family. I think it's always good to have things to look forward to, especially when exams are the only word you hear at school!

 It's half term next week, marking fifteen weeks left of year eleven. It's not all that much when you look at it like that, but I'm honestly so sick of it. I'm trying to make the best of it, but it's tricky when the sky is so beautiful and the lesson really is not!

I've got lots planned for over half term, including the Save the Children sale (big jumble sale, more later), stacking shelves and not having a moment to myself. That's the way we like it :)

I've been really grateful to have a handful of sparkly people in my life who have made January that bit more bearable. Whether it be Kim Woodburn memes or braindead nonsense, I love you all dearly.

All my love, Marti xxxx
P.S. My photos got featured on Cathy's blog!


  1. I love how huge Ziggy's nose is!
    Stacking shelves? More like refilling a giant highlighter! xx
    I love you loads.
    You're awesome.
    Can't wait for Save the children!
