Day 11- Another picture of you and your friends

Well seeing as I didn't read ahead and I posted all the photos of me and my friends the other day, have a picture of me, my sister, my dad and my cousins, Faye and Fiona in the good seats on the coach on Saturday....

Day 10 - Songs you listen to when you are Happy, Sad, Bored, Hyped, Mad

This could take a while, music is really important to me, I listen all day long!

Happy: I can't honestly say, and all I have achieved after 20 minutes of sitting here is that I've just ended up in a huge Spotify loop!

Sad: Bloc Party reminds me of being sad, their first album in particular.  Or, I'm trying to think what I used to listen to when I was about 14 and really severely depressed.  I used to listen to Muse a lot when I was down. 

Bored: Anything, literally.  I find myself listening to really random crap when I'm bored, normally at work, I'll suddenly do a load of crappy searches on Spotify.  The last time I went searching, I found the Sims 2 soundtrack by Mark Mothersbaugh...!

Hyped: Yeah, same as Happy really, it depends.  And actually all this question is done is reminded me that I was going to look up Gwen Stefani, "This shit is bananas, b-a-n-a-n-a-s!"

Mad: Caught Out There by Kelis - it doesn't matter who it is who has pissed me off, but I always SCREAM the chorus from this in my head....

Day 9 - Something you're proud of in the last few days

That Scarlett hasn't had a toilet related accident at all this week.  She's done so well.  We just need to crack night times and we're there!  No idea how it's going to work being on the hop this weekend though, am going to have to start teaching her how to go if I hold her over a big toilet!!  She can go on the big toilet with her training seat, but if we're out, I need her to be able to use a public loo, so definitely need to teach her to be held 3 foot above the toilet to wee!

Day 8 - Short term goals for this month and why

Are you joking me?  I thought I was going to do a quick catch up here not a long one!

So, erm, I guess my main short term goal is to lose some weight.  Also, save some money and/or start my Christmas shopping.

Boring I know.

Day 7 - A picture of someone who has made the biggest impact on you

Okay, so smushy one coming up but really, I couldn't do this post and post a picture of anyone other than:

No alright, I'm joking, of course it isn't Dolly bloody Parton.  I don't even really know who she is, I asked Andy to name a really tacky American celebrity, he said Dolly, there you go.

Of course, the person who has made the biggest impact on me is this little monster:

Scarlett at 2 days old
Surely I don't have to explain why....

Day 6 - Favorite super hero and why

I'm going to admit to something here.  I hate super hero movies; X Men, Iron Man, Superman, Spiderman, Batman.  With the exception of Batman from the 1990s which I've still probably only seen like once, the bit where whatsherface gets turned into Cat Woman (hot) I've never seen any!

So the only super heroes I have to go on are like, Bananaman, Danger Mouse and SuperTed.  They are all awesome because they are 80s kids cartoons!  I used to love all of them and spend ages watching them.  Of course, I couldn't really tell you much of what happened in any of them, or really, actually, I'm going to refute what I was going to say because I probably could name the main characters so yknow.

Day 5 - A picture of somewhere you've been to

Well, would you like to be any more ambiguous?!

I don't have time, you can check out my Flickr if you're more interested so here's one:

Yeah, alright so like the least imaginative shot of the Eiffel Tower ever but yknow, I like it!

I would go into the story behind this but I won't bore you all... unless you want me to....

Day 4 - Woo, I finally caught up!

A habit I wish I didn't have.

I pick my bogies..... am so ashamed.

Playing catch up - Day 3 - Picture of me and my friends

Well, I have a couple of friendship groups, I have my friends from Uni and I have two old friends from school/church.

My Uni friends:
G, Ruth, Me - My 25th Birthday piss up
Tom, Jo and Andy - My 25th Birthday Piss up

My oldest friends:
Ali, Beth and Me - Christmas Ball, 2002

Okay, so the last one is like uber old, but I didn't have one of all three of us together, I had ones of us last year.  Actually, I lie, I have one of us at Hampton Court....

Ali, Beth and Me - Hampton Court 2010
Love it.

Playing catch up - Day 2 - The meaning behind my blog name

So, pretend I posted this on Friday right!

My blog name.  Well, ever since I was a teenager I had the nickname Amylena.  No idea why, my friend Beth thought it up, she used to sing it like Thumbelina!  Once, someone said it should be Amy-wider, not Amylena.  Nice huh?  I hate that man, he has an ugly wife now, karma.

So anyways, I decided that I wanted to move away from Amylena, and started using Amy Georgina instead, which is my first and middle name.  Don't you go committing identity fraud on me now will you?!

So the URL is but the actual title of it is Reflection of Me.  To be fair, I have no idea where that came from, it's actually just a blatantly boring blog title because what are blogs other than reflections of the authors life and feelings etc etc.  So it's a lazy blog title.  The URL will never change, the title may change but hey.  What do you guys think?!

Playing catch up - Day 1 - 15 Facts

So I'm behind on this already, now there's a surprise!

1: I have grade 1 in Violin.  My violin teacher told me to give up and "Go play the Flute"
2: I used to play the Flute.  But I was never any good and used to just use Piano sheet music to play the Beatles and gossip with my flute teacher.
3: I have also played the drums in my lifetime.  I did this when I was taking Music GCSE and it really pissed my old bitch of a Music teacher off. 
4: I can sort of play the Bass.
5: I'm a cheat.  Facts 1-4 substantiate this fact.
6: My first car was a Mini 30 called Bertie.  My second car was a Peugeot 306, it was a Turbo Diesel and I raced the arse off it.  He was called Jean-Pierre.  My third car was a Ford Fiesta, she was called Florence.  I sold Florence nearly 2 years ago to a lady who lives in the social housing at the end of my road.  I think Florence must have died and I no longer see her driving past.  Bertie now lives on the Purley Way in Croydon.  He's being neglected, I endlessly hatch plans to rescue him.  Jean-Pierre was sold to some inbred bloke from Derby...
7: I once sold my pet hamster for £5 and a bag of sweets.
8: I have a terrible relationship with food.
9: I'm scared of thunderstorms, and yet, I would love to go storm chasing in America.  They scare yet excite me greatly.
10: I've suffered from depression since I was 13.
11: I'm incredibly selfish.
12: I live for music and my daughter.  I could talk about both of them all day long, endlessly.
13: Fuck you little cursor, stop flashing at me, I've run out of facts okay?
14: I love Strictly Come Dancing and cannot wait for the new series to start properly.
15: I recently learnt some basic swing dancing with Andy, but we haven't practiced which saddens me.

Yes, alright, boring, hopefully there's at least one interesting one in here!!

Tu Vo Fa L'Americano

I have this silly song in my head, not the original or anything, that annoyingly catching remix that they keep playing on Radio 1. I heard it whilst in the van on my epic bike ride (did I blog about that yet?!) and it's on my Spotify playlist so it pops up every now and then. Anyway...

I have lots of lovely new followers, I'm now up to 14 followers, how exciting, Ni Hao! Thanks for any comments that you've left recently, blog love is always the best love....

I had a proper post ready to, erm, post, but then I got sidetracked looking at photos and then told off for being on the internet too much, oooops!

Not a lot to report really. Have come with a rotten cold, am annoyed at my new haircut, it looked super cute the first day (Doesn't it always, damn hairdressers and their super blow drying powers) and now it just looks crap and I look like a frumpy mum. Again. The one thing I keep trying to avoid. Yes, I know I have a kid, but I'm also still only 25, not 55!

I think we're heading out for dinner again tonight, though I don't know where. We were going to go to Bodean's, I think I might just relent and still go, it just means Andy will drink too much and I'll have to drive home from Clapham, which I don' fancy much! Oh well, will see what happens.

In the meantime, some photos perhaps?

Red Lips Wednesday

Hair immediately after cut and blow dry

Hair the morning after, when I've had to wash and restyle myself. Fail

Our roof started leaking in the kitchen during the heavy rain. Fail.

We're potty training Scarlett. Moderate fail.

That's all for now. Going to get ready and decide where to go for dinner. Two nights out in one week with Andy, that's more than when we first met!
