Tough Times Never Last, But Tough People Do

I feel that some of these photos are a good representation of my life right now.  Yesterday my car Gandalf failed his M.O.T. test and it turns out loads of his body is corroded.  There's nothing we can do to save him and I'm pretty heartbroken.  I only got to drive him for a year :(  I'm now having to look for a new car which is proving to be very difficult.  My plans to save up for a Mini have been scrapped too because all my savings will be going on my new car.

I don't want this blog post to be all doom and gloom though!  My nose cast is finally off and I'm so happy with the results.  My nose bump is gone and I haven't had any headaches since the operation :D  It'll be a little while before my nose feels better but I don't regret having the op one bit.  I have a hospital appointment tomorrow and then I'm going into the city with my mum.  Hopefully the end of this week will be better than the beginning!

Meet Hamlet

Say hi to my leopard gecko! :D I took some photos of him in his new vivarium and thought it would be fun to share them with you guys.  Leopard geckos aren't very big lizards and are pretty easy to look after, plus they come in a variety of gorgeous colours and patterns.  Hamlet is yellow, white and purple with lots of black spots.  It took me ages to convince my parents to let me have a lizard but they love him now!  One thing I love about leopard geckos is that they appear to be smiling all the time which is adorable.

I'm not going to be around much for the next couple of weeks as I had an operation last Wednesday and need to recover.  I also have a uni deadline coming up and have so much work to do D:  It's going to be hectic and I'll be glad when it's over :)

Anyway I'd love to hear about any pets you have!  If you've written a blog post about them feel free to link me to it ♥

30 Random Facts About Me

I've loved reading everyone's 'facts about me' posts so decided to do my own.  It has reminded me that we're all different people, and it's lovely getting to know more about someone other than what clothes and makeup they like!  I've decided to split my post up with some of my photographs/artwork too :)
