I hate dreams

Mine are either nightmares, or leave me wishing the dream was reality.

About ten years or so ago I met a guy called Joe. Honestly, that’s the first and only time in my life that I have fallen in love at first sight. And I’ve loved him ever since and always will. We’ve had moments together, and at one point we were so close to actually being a couple but I fucked it up (basically someone at the pub asked if I was his girlfriend, he smiled and said you’d better ask her…instead of taking that as a hint and saying yes, I didn’t know how to answer). We can go months, sometimes even years without speaking properly purely because life gets in the way, but I know if I really needed him he’d be there. And I’d like to think he knows I’m here for him too.

Last night, I dreamed that we had finally got together, and that we were so happy together. He made me feel safe and loved, just like he did back when I spent most weekends staying at his house. I felt complete in a sense.

Then I woke up. And I cried…I cried because I wish that dream could be a reality, but the chances of it ever happening are very slim…if not impossible tbh.

Why must my dreams do this to me? Even the nice dreams leave me waking up feeling sad 😔

🔹immeamy, you’re you, and that’s the best way to be🔹

It’s been a while…

So I haven’t written a blog post in a while, and I didn’t finish that 30 day challenge thingy I was doing. I’ll be honest, I kinda just couldn’t be bothered. I didn’t know what to write about, so just thought I’d leave it for a bit.

I’ll be honest I still have no idea when I’ll regularly start posting again, I seem to have writers block. But I thought tonight while I’m sat in bed watching lion king 2 with my daughter that I’d do a bit of a life update thingy for anyone interested.

I posted in May that I had finally passed my driving test, and I’m pleased to say I got my car yesterday. It’s a silver 2003 Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec Petrol.

Yesterday I drove my stepdad home, then my mum and daughter back to my house. I was fine, apart from 2 parts. The first was a slight hill start on mums farm track…I just could not find the biting point! I must have stalled about 10 times or more. Then when I got home my parking spaces are right outside my house, and I didn’t come in wide enough so ended up stupidly wonky, so I thought I’d just fix it and readjust. Again I struggled with the biting point and at one point I had my head on my steering wheel fighting back tears. I did eventually manage it.

Today, I had to drive my mum home then drive back on my own just with my daughter. I reversed out of mums drive perfectly, then came the dreaded hill start…I only stalled 3 times today doing that which was an improvement on yesterday. Driving home was perfectly fine, I even stopped at the shop. When it came to parking, I stalled once and my daughter said “nanna said to be patient, stay calm mummy calm”…and it honestly helped me hearing her little voice saying such a grown up bit of advice…and I parked perfectly after that.

Next week I’ll be picking Mum up, then we’ll be going into a town that’s about 40mins away to do my food shopping. I gotta challenge myself and get used to driving because in July I’ve gotta pick my Nan up who’s about a 2 n half hour journey away. It’s all just about getting used to my car as it’s totally different to what I did my lessons in. I’ll get there, I mean today was already a massive improvement on yesterday 🙂

What else has been happening…

I’ve mentioned on here before about a lad called Mackenzie. We’ve been friends a few years, went to school together but lost contact after I left (he’s the year below me) and got back in contact when I moved in with a mutual friend. Anyway it turns out we both liked each other for years but I never believed him when he flirted with me I thought it was a wind up til we spoke about it properly. Long story short- recently he’d been messaging me saying about missing me and wishing he could be with me etc etc, all very lovely cute stuff. He also said he couldn’t wait for me to be able to visit and that he’d visit me early June. I honestly believed that it could have turned into a relationship…then he went all quiet on me. Stopped replying, stopped writing nice comments on my photos…just total radio silence.

Well, I’m not an idiot I can see when he was last online thanks to stuff like WhatsApp and Facebook messenger etc…I can also see when he’s tagged in things with people. This girl had tagged him in a status, so I done the typical girl thing of finding her on Instagram to be nosey…and sure enough there were photos of mackenzie out with her. No biggie, guys and girls can be friends…only they weren’t just friends. I then saw a photo of them together on a day out… and saw her Facebook had changed to in a relationship. That explains the silence from him! I then sent him a message confronting him for leading me on, saying that I still wanna be his friend but that I don’t want him to come crawling back to me when it goes tits up with his new girlfriend…who strangely enough has the same first name as him. I find that rather weird personally I mean I hated it enough that my ex’s name and mine sounded similar together (Jamie and Amy). Each to their own I guess!

Anyway much to my surprise he did reply, but it came across as a very half arsed apology with no explanation…but it was the best I was gonna get outta him so I just left it at that. I highly doubt I’ll hear from him to be honest but at least I’ve said my piece and made him aware at how shit he made me feel…not that I think he actually cared about that but oh well!

I’m just done with the thought of relationships now, and no that doesn’t mean I’ll go for flings instead I have more self respect than that. I just seem to always get lied to etc and I just can’t be bothered with it anymore I’d rather be single.

I’ve started a new distance learning course about common health conditions though I’m starting to regret it as I just can’t motivate myself to sit n do it. But I’ve got to otherwise they’ll charge me £125 for it! So my plan tomorrow is to quickly tidy the living room as my daughter has released her hurricane of chaos, then ima put her cartoons on the tv so I’m not distracted and just get on with some more questions even if it’s just the draft then write them up another day. I’m doing it all by hand too might I add! It’s annoying I was looking forward to doing it but it took a while to come through so by the time I got it I’d lost my get up and go for it. Like I said though I’ve gotta complete it now I’ve got it…and hopefully I wont have to redo any questions so I can just get it over with.

Anyway, that’s all I can think of to write about. I don’t know when I’ll next post, having writers block, mixed with having to do a course, and just generally feeling a bit crap doesn’t make it easy to write a blog post unfortunately!

I hope everyone is ok and doing well.

Relationship Requirements. (Jokey post of boredom)

So I’m well and truly fed up of the male population. I keep getting lead on and treated like a mug so I jokingly said to Soph I should make an application form thing for any future guy who shows interest…well I’m bored so here it is 😂

please note that this isn’t me being serious I am only messing about I’m hardly gonna make guys fill out a form I’m a person not a job haha!

Let’s start with some more ‘light hearted’ requirements lol

1. How tall are you? (I’m 5ft 9, if you are under 5ft 8 im sorry but you’re friend-zoned, I’m like a theme park you gotta be a certain height to get in! 😂)

2. Do you have nice hands? (If you’re hands are gross I’m not letting you touch me)

3. Are you a noisy/messy eater? (If you are, please leave)

4. Do you have a varied music taste?

5. Do you play any musical instruments? (Bonus points if you do)

6. Do you like Disney films?

7. Do you do drugs or drink excessively? (If so, cya)

8. Do you have a job? (I have myself and my daughter to support, I’m not financially supporting you too)

9. Can you cook? (I can, but I hate it)

10. How hairy are you? (I’m not very keen on gorilla men sorry!)

11. Nights in or nights out?

12. Your opinion on tattoos?

13. Will you save me from spiders, bugs, and anything with wings?

14. Do you use the words bae, hun, babes or any other variation of spelling for those words? (If so please don’t ever use them on me I will hurt you)

15. When sharing a bed, how do you like to sleep? (I’m more of the give me a hug and a kiss then roll over and don’t touch me kinda person- I can’t sleep with someone breathing on me or crushing me with deadweight arms and legs lol)

16. Are you an animal lover? (If you hate animals we won’t work- I don’t trust anyone who’s nasty to animals)

17. Can you dance? (I’m always prancing round the kitchen like fat Monica in friends, so a dance partner would be good)

18. Will you bring me chocolate/junk food when I’m feeling shit? (Definitely extra points for that, but not if you turn up unannounced I hate that!)

19. Do you have a cute soppy side?

20. Are you cuddly? (I’m a cuddly person who needs to be cuddled!)

Ok so now onto more of the ‘serious side’ kinda like the terms and conditions I guess 😂

1. You must accept that I’m a mum and that my daughter will ALWAYS be my top priority over anyone including you. So don’t be a dick that gets jealous of the attention she gets. Also you have to treat her as if she was your own, but not in the sense of having any authority over her- she’s MY daughter, she follows MY rules not yours- you just gotta treat her nicely and if you can’t then I don’t wish to even know you.

2. Accept the fact I have tattoos- don’t try to make me cover up or use me as some freak show to parade around.

3. I don’t know how to accept compliments, so by all means use GENUINE compliments but don’t get arsey if I don’t believe you or don’t react much.

4. If you’re interested in me, then prove it. Don’t make me chase you, don’t make me think you like me one week to then forget I exist the next. And don’t just stop talking to me and move on to some other girl with no explanation- I’m not an idiot, social media is great in aiding people to find stuff out!

5. I’ve got no interest in traveling- I like England, and I hate boiling hot weather so don’t be expecting me to wanna go to Spain or whatever because it won’t happen.

6. Don’t hide things from me, and don’t lie to me.

7. I don’t need to see you every day, but a simple good morning and good night text would at least let me know you’ve thought about me.

8. Don’t make me feel like you’re ashamed to be with me. I like holding hands in public or messing around in shops together. I don’t wanna be walking around looking like I’m just in the friend zone.

9. Don’t act differently in front of your friends- it’s not attractive or cool to treat your other half like shit just to show off in front of your mates.

10. Understand that I have been hurt a lot in the past and find it hard to trust people- so don’t give me a reason to not trust you. I have nothing to hide what so ever so I’d appreciate it if you were the same.

11. I’m up for a laugh and banter etc, but not if it involves how I look. I have 0 self confidence and hate my body so even if in a jokey way you called me chubs or wobbled my legs for example, I won’t find it funny it’ll just make me more self conscious.

12. I will have days where I’m not all sunshine and lollipops, not very often but it’s part of who I am. So on those days just be there for me in whatever way I need you to be- whether it’s physically just to hug me, or if I want to be left alone and not touched just text me so I know that you care.

13. Have a sense of humour, but also know when to be serious too.

14. Dont expect me to jump into bed with you straight away- it’s been a long time since I’ve trusted anyone to be intimate with me and the last person broke that level of trust pretty badly so don’t be mad etc if I come across as ‘shy’ and ‘hesitant’ when it comes to that side of relationships. (It won’t last forever, I just have to build up that trust and feel safe)

My opinion on season 2 of 13 Reasons Why

There are some spoilers.

When the first season came out, a lot of people were claiming that it was glamourising/romanticising suicide- I disagree with that. Yes it was tough to watch, and I can see why it would be triggering to some people, but I think it was done really well and had me gripped from episode 1.

I waited ages for season 2 to see what happened next. And I’ll be honest, I was kinda disappointed.

Season 2 did not grip me as much as the first season- and it actually took til episode 11 to get me crying. It was no where near as dark and tough to watch as the first season, and I think that they were great in the fact that at the start and finish of each episode there was a warning and a helpline number/website.

I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about the use of Hannah’s ghost talking to Clay. I personally really liked that aspect, because there’s a lot of people who find comfort in having someone ghost with them after they’ve died. So I don’t see the issue in involving that as part of the story.

I got a bit bored of the court case if I’m honest, it seemed to go too slow then from episode 11 was a bit rushed.

The one scene I do not agree with, is when a character was shown being beaten up in the school toilets, then being penetrated with a broom handle- you don’t actually see it entering him, but it does show his facial expression as it happens and shows the end of the broom handle covered in blood. I thought it went a bit too far showing an assault like that personally, and was unneeded. It was the only scene I found uncomfortable to watch. However, there are warnings at the start of the episode so it’s not totally unexpected in a sense.

There must be a season 3 happening because of how this one ended, it’ll be interesting to see what they do with it and where the story goes. I do however think that there should only be 3 seasons, it’ll be far too much to go on longer than that.

I don’t see why people are complaining about it, as like I mentioned there are warnings at the start of every episode, and at the start of the first episode the cast are actually on screen giving the warnings. So if you know that yourself or your teenager aren’t in the right frame of mind or level of maturity to watch it after seeing the warnings, simply don’t watch it.

I myself have had depression from a young teen age, including self harm and suicide attempt. However, I know that I am not triggered by scenes in films etc. Yes they can make me cry etc, but they don’t make me want to self harm or copy what I’ve seen. However there are others who are very easily impressionable, and maybe more delicate/sensitive to graphic scenes and therefore should not watch it.

Warnings are there for a reason, and you know yourself better than anyone else so if you know you’ll find it hard to watch with graphic scenes, don’t put yourself through it.

GeekGear World Of Wizardry Wearable May2018

This is the first wearable edition I’ve received and to be honest I wish I had got them from the start! The other boxes are alright, but I don’t use most the stuff (still trying to sell some of it on depop!) whereas I will use everything in the wearable box.

I have however unsubscribed for now because I need to figure out what money I need for when I have a car- I’m hoping I can go back to getting them again as I really enjoy receiving ‘surprise post’ that isn’t junk mail or a bill! It gave me something to look forward to every month, but I’ve gotta be sensible I guess!

Anyway, here’s what I got in my box- I’ve only taken photos from the leaflet as it’s just easier to show the designs etc.

My favourite is the Bellatrix tshirt but I love it all 🙂

🔹immeamy, you’re you, and that’s the best way to be🔹

Dear Soph…

I wanted to write a kinda open letter thing to my best girl mate Sophie, because sometimes I think we all need a little boost and to know we are appreciated.

I’ll be honest, I have no idea how the hell we actually ended up being friends haha!

We’ve been friends so long that it feels like you’ve just always been there, though it’s been like ten years or so (god we’re old!)

I just wanna say thank you to you for those school years particularly, because you saw me when no one else did, and you treated me like an actual friend rather than just using me when everyone else was busy. You also saved me in PE (when we did actually participate!) by always being my partner, and you saved me from the dreaded walk to and from school on my own many times. Having you around made school a tad bit easier so I thank you for that.

You were also my saviour out of school too.

For all the times I fell out with family you were there to meet me and take me in when I needed to escape.

You came with me to Bournemouth so that I wasn’t going alone.

You sat with me for literally hours in town because I just didn’t wanna be at home.

And you have been part of some fucking awesome memories…yes that includes when you dragged me down that fucking hill and made me land in stinging nettles (in style though!) but at least you helped me in Burger King toilets try to get my stinging Popeye arms into the sink haha!

And of course, the western. You were there for me when I fell head over heels in love with Joe…and you were there when he broke my heart too.

You were there through some of my toughest times when I was fighting nasty battles in my own head- risking your own safety to save me sometimes.

You were always first to notice when I’d disappear, or sometimes you’d realise I was about to before it even happened and got people like Joe to help you bring me back. And for that alone I’m forever grateful.

I hate that for a few years we drifted apart because life is just a dick like that- but whatever bought us back together, I’m glad it did because I’d be lost without you now.

Even though I haven’t seen you in a few years, you’re the only person I can rely on to actually text me (when your phone doesn’t hate me lol) and have a conversation with me about anything and everything.

I can talk to you about anything- from gross stuff like mega periods and my daughters constipation, to random theories, annoyances, man trouble, you name it we talk about it!

You’re also the only friend of mine who’s openly and publicly proud of me for stuff like when I passed my driving test, and that is really appreciated.

I also appreciate the fact that even though you haven’t met my daughter, you still ask about her more than what most family members do, and you’ve been kind enough to send her cards and presents which again is more than what most family members do.

For me, you’re way more than a best friend, you’re family, and you always will be.

You deserve a lot better than what you’ve been given over the years, and hopefully now with recent events you will see that for yourself and believe it.

You’re fucking awesome, and I wish you could see that for yourself.

Time to be who you want to be, and to put yourself first.

No more scrubs! Lol

I love ya cockwomble, and I’ll always be here no matter what. Now that I can drive, we will definitely need to sort out some good old catch up times to make new memories, get some god damn tattoos, and take some better photos because the ones I’ve included are pure cringe haha!!

🔹immeamy, you’re you, and that’s the best way to be🔹
