Brave

I thought I’d let you all know what I thought of the Disney film ‘Brave’, whether you want to know what I thought or not.
It didn’t appeal to me at first, some animated scots prancing around in kilts killing bears, I want pretty princesses and love and all that jazz!
But to be honest, I really enjoyed it today. I haven’t left the sofa and I refuse to change from my pajamas because it’s my day off until exams tomorrow.
First off, merida’s hair is absolutely gorgeous! I LOVE red hair and I’m insanely jealous of my brother and boyfriend who are both gingers. To top it off, she has beautiful frizz and curl to it, which is exactly how I love mine… But I have to use heat to get It that way.

Then, they’re Scottish. I love the accent, I think it’s so amusing, much better than mine which isn’t an accent at all. 😦
Merida has three small brothers, who part way through turn into bears. I want them! They’re adorable and so mischievous!

Last but certainly not least, the story line is so refreshing!
It’s not about some princess who wears big pretty dresses, dreams of love and loves to read, Merida hates her dress because it prevents her from using her bow and arrow to the best of her ability. She can hit the bullseye better than any of the boys and hates the thought of marriage. Her story isn’t that she finally finds someone and falls in love, she accidentally turns her mother, who disapproves of her not wanting to marry or wear dresses into a bear!! they quest to find the witch who did this to her to help them turn her mother back before its too late and the spell becomes permanent. This results in the improvement of their relationship and her father almost killing her mother because he mistook her for an evil bear.
I really loved this film and recommend it, especially to huge Disney and fairy tale friends like myself!!
Love from me x

Grandma Garnett

My little stats graph is getting better every day. This makes me happy:)
Another thing that makes me happy is the fact I got a C yesterday in maths. It was a practice paper, but still.. The revision is paying off and it’s good.
Concentrate on the good things and not the bad is always the best way to stay happy + it’s working for me. 🙂
One person who makes me very happy is my grandma. She’s so amazing.
She’ll literally do anything for anybody – when my grandad was ill with Parkinson’s she looked after him, lifting him in and out of his chair, cooking, pushing him around in his wheelchair, dressing him.. Right until the day he was hospitalised before he died.
When he did die, it was the fact he was so lucky to have my grandma that was mentioned so much.

grandma is the type of woman a man could spend his whole life searching for and his life would still be worthwhile if he failed to find her.

my cousin said this at his funeral, yet I’m not entirely sure that’s exactly what he said, it was much more poetic.
Spending the afternoon with her is always lovely, and after the death of my nanna I’ve really started to appreciate the time I have with my grandma knowing how precious it is.
I hate the thought of loosing her one day and being left without any grandmothers.
She’s been a huge part of my education. Thanks to her I can cook, bake and sew. I don’t need mum to fix the loose button on my shirt because I can do it myself.
She’s such a special lady just like my mum and my nanna. I love her ever so much and I’m so lucky to have women like them in my life.
