Day Thirty - Earliest memory #BEDAoutmumbered



I'm sure I have many other early memories but the most vivid one that comes to mind is the one when I out my feet through a double glazed window!!
I'd been doing gymnastics at school nothing pro like just the climbing, slanted benches, ropes etc, so with that still in my mind I spent my evening pretending to do gymnastics at home we still had the old fashioned style double glazing were you could pull the second one across and you was able to take them out if you wanted to.
My mum had dad had a panel of it out, so being the genius that I am I thought why don't I lay it slanted down the side of mum and dads bed like the benches at school?
Ta'da perfect, with little jumps down until I made it to the bottom brilliant it works :)
Now lets try that a little harder 'bounce bounce bounce SMASH' oopps :/
I went straight through instead of screaming and crying I patiently waited for my mum and dad to come and find me blood all over their cream carpet and my legs dangling through the glass.
I remember everything as if it was yesterday heading to the hospital wrapped in a blanket and my feet elevated driving past my brother and he didn't even notice the little feet in the window, how the panel of glass sat in the garden waiting to be discarded.
I now have a scar on each foot where the glass had sliced and they'd had to cut further to retrieve the glass that was stuck in my foot, it's like a little smiley face right across the back of my heel and creeps the hell out of me if anyone touches it, even down to laying in bed with my feet pointing up and the other like a little maggot on the inside of my right heel.

Where were my parents your wondering? 
I was meant to be in bed and I managed to do it all so quietly they didn't know/think any different.

BLOGGER MEET PREP - Get to know me



My names Linda also known as Lulu being called Linda creeps me out a little as it's very rare I'm called it, Your welcome to call me either
I'm 22 will be 23 on the 27th September
I'm a mother of two little girls Issy (Isabella-Rose) who's 6 and Daisie who's 3
If I don't get my hair dye in time, I'll be supporting stupidly long roots and a few shades of pink,
I suffer with anxiety and agoraphobia so this meet is a REALLY big thing for me to do, So do forgive me if I have to dart to the toilets often and quickly and get myself over a panic attack or run for the hills and leave early because I really can't handle it,
Please also forgive me if I come across rude and don't eat I have IBS and sometimes I prefer not to eat while out in case of any flares up.
Really looking forward to meet you all :) 
Your all very welcome to follow me on insatgram or add me on facebook my links are over to the right >>>

The beauty blogger - TAG

 I don't consider myself a beauty blogger or any particular kind of blogger if I'm totally honest, I blog about what I fancy not a set subject etc
 
 
 Is your hair naturally curly or straight?
  Straight

What is your natural hair colour?
  A mousey brown

Do you dye it yourself or go to a salon?
Myself well Andy

How often do you wash your hair?
As and when it needs washing which varies sometimes once a week up to 2-3

Do you wear the same style every day or change it?
Most of the time it's chucked in a messy bun, I attempt down but end up hot and bothered although I'm having it in a pony tail more often now

Do you do your own mani/pedi or go to the salon? 
Salon for my mani my a acrylic addict, home for my toes

How often do you change your nail polish?
Every 2 weeks along with an infill and my toes when it chips I either then re-do it or change the colour.

Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
All year round

How long does it take you to do your make up?
Depending on the occasion 30 minutes including chasing the girls for the contents of my make-up bag bag

What do you do first - face or eyes?
Face I can't imagine doing my eyes first? I'd end up looking like I just got out of the shower after getting in with my make-up on

Do you 'collect' make up or just buy what you need when you need it?
I buy it when I need it but have still ended up with a collection from changing brands

How often do you wear false eyelashes?
Never I used to for photoshoots and that's it, they are so uncomfortable how my friend wears them everyday I do not know

Do you do a full face of make up every day?
No I would love to tho but if I'm not going out it just seems like such a waste and most days I just want to get out and back home again

Do you wear make up when you are home alone/with family?
Occasionally mainly on occasions so I don't look like the grim reaper in photos of us all

Will you leave the house without make up?
Yes ask me that 5 years ago it would have been a hell no

How many high end products do you have?
Erm.. 3? I think if you count a sample HA! Since being a mum I begrudge spending silly amounts on things for myself

How often do you wash your make up brushes?
I've barely used them but I do need to get down with this brush cleaning technique, Eveyrtime I do my make-up my foundation brush gets a clean with a make-up wipe before I use it.
'don't shoot me'

Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you're getting up?
When I get up, I tend to chuck on whats comfortable atm

I always have tabs open on my phone of bloggers and blogposts I've spotted on twitter so I can go back to them

How did you come up with your blog name?
It was meant to be temporary until I thought of another but then it seemed perfectly fitting and didn't tie me to any type of blogging, I hoped people saw it as I'm a mum and this is what I do when I get some time to myself so would see it as they'd find anything from fashion,beauty,lifestyle and family posts

LUMIX FZ48

Day Twenty Eight - Who is your biggest inspiration? #BEDAoutmumbered




My wonderful mum
Never have I met someone who has been given so many reasons to give up but still battles on.
Despite the awful things my mum has had to deal with I have never once heard her grumble or moan about any of it, The things she has been through are unspeakable/unimaginable just the fact she gets up of a morning and just gets on with things is inspiring to me.
Everyday she puts everyone elses needs before her own she has many health problems but if you was to need her she would be there, even if she was having the worst of days she wouldn't let you down.
She would give you the clothes of her back,the very last penny she had and the last bit of food if you needed it without any hesitation.
