#blogging4charity – Final Month

I have been trying to raise money this year for British Dyslexia Association on JustGiving. I started on 28th of February 2015 so I have just over a month to go until I switch to a new charity for 2016.

I set a very high target which I have no way in hell of reaching now. My month of #blogging4charity really didn’t go as well as I had hoped. However, I have raised £186.00 to date and would really love to smash past £200.00.

Over the next month, I am going to try my best to write some blogs to inspire you all to part with £1 or more to help me to reach my new target of £200.00!

You can donate by going to my JustGiving Page here:

Thanks folks for your generosity!

#blogging4charity – N is for Nails

I have always been a tomboy. I hated dolls and loved my farm with its little tractor. Although I loved my Care Bears and My Little Ponies, I loved watching Thundercats, He-Man and I wanted Michelangelo the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtle action figure for years. I tend to wear minimal make-up if any at all. But there’s one thing I am very girly about. That’s my fingernails.

When I was young, I used to bite my nails when I was nervous. It was a really bad habit and my dad used to constantly tell me that if I didn’t stop biting my nails I’d end up with ‘piggy fingers’. Now, I don’t know what ‘piggy fingers’ are, but it didn’t sound very nice at all.  Read the rest of this entry

JustGiving – One Year to raise £1,000 for British Dyslexia Association!

My target is to reach £1,000 over the year!
