My August Favourite Music

Hi ya

and thanks for coming back !!

have you ever had a day where all you want to do is have your ear phones in and listen to music ? and when you do you find more tunes to submerge your reality into ….

Ok so today has been a day where I have sat down and listened to music my current favourites

First off we have Avicii
I am totally in love with this song, I feel the video is a good way to show if you dont fit in where you are there is always somewhere better, where you can be yourself and accepted, that’s really all we want is to be accepted as the people were growing or have grown into.
take a listen …

Taylor Swift – I Knew You Were Trouble

although this is a long intro- probably a world record lol, but it is a good song I love the spin off Goat one aswell hehe !

Then we have the lovely John Newman – Love Me Again

I have to say this reminds me of back to the future with the dancing love the retro spin but not the ending of the video.. very sad !!

Selena Gomez – Come & Get It

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-D1EB74Ckg?rel=0%5D

The Happy Badger Donation

 

Hi, Ya and thank you loads for coming back!

The Happy Badger from ao.com  is on a mission to spread happiness across the blogosphere by getting bloggers to talk about their favourite charities so of course I had to take the chance to tell you just a little more about the Emily Ash Trust for £50 donation

to say that this Charity and a few others to mention are close to my heart, But my chosen one for this is Emily Ash Trust

why is it so special ?
because it helps families like mine in their time of need when children and young people are hit with tragic news of Cancer and other horrid illnesses that are probably the main thing family’s need, these people have been there suffered how we are suffering and are still there at the end to help the adults hold it together till the very end.

there are many things Emily Ash Trust does

from Website

Whilst excellent medical assistance is provided through the care network, it is clear that this terrible disease has far wider effects on the sufferer and the family supporting those who are sick. Inspired by Emily who had been suffering from leukaemia for some years, it was decided to help raise funds to improve the quality of life for these children and their families.

We are a small charity with a big heart with our primary aim being to improve the lives of children and young people suffering from cancer. We are able to do this thanks to the fundraising and donations made by our fantastic supporters who, like us, want to help families facing cancer. All staff work on a voluntary basis with all money raised going to support these families.

We provide help, events for the whole family and resources with the aim of improving the quality of life of children and young adults suffering from cancer and their families. The Trust focuses its help in various ways, including:

  • Build-A-Bear and Zizzi
  • Two free holiday homes in Battle, near Hastings
  • Teenage Pamper Days at Topshop – London
  • Pamper Days for parents at The Royal Marsden
  • Sibling and Family Days
  • Christmas party – Winter Wonderland
  • Resources for the Marsden School Room and Play Rooms to make stays in the hospital more bearable.
  • Build A Bear On the Ward – we bring bears, outfits and accessories to patients on the ward at the Royal Marsden Hospital
  • Help and special treats for families of children or teens being treated for cancer

My family have had their fair share of  misery when it comes to Cancer, yes my mum and my sister both suffered and still suffering from this relentless disease,
metro

my mum has had cancer several times and fort, overcome and another type 4 times in different areas, to say from the age of 18 (myself) having to go through a parent being gravely ill and trying to keep positive, to then see your baby sister who was 13 when struck with a brain tumour, operations have been done on them both and at the same time my heart torn apart, then aged 21, and a new mum to Ladybug.

having both of my family members unwell and seeing what the Emily Ash Trust has done for my family is amazing,

 

Sister has had a makeover at TopShop, the family have been to Hastings holiday home and much more.

the good news is My mum and sister are now well my sister now 19 and mum 21 (lol) are still in touch with this charity

I see the event 10,000 ft free fall parachute jump is something that makes my knees tremble but it is for a good cause .. if anyone is willing to help me raise funds please leave a comment below

this is an amazing chance to do something once in a lifetime to help others!

The Wolverine 3D

TheWolverineBanner

Plot

In 1945, Logan is a prisoner in a Japanese POW camp near Nagasaki. When the Americans drop the atomic bomb, he rescues the life of an officer named Yashida.

In the present day, Logan lives as a hermit in the Canadian wilderness, tormented by hallucinations of Jean Grey, whom he was forced to kill in the previous film. One day, during a bar-fight with some hunters, he is located by Yukio, a woman with mutant powers enabling her to forsee people’s deaths, representing Yashida, now the CEO of a technology corporation, who is dying of cancer. Yashida wants Logan to accompany Yukio to Japan to repay his life debt.

In Tokyo, Logan meets Yashida’s sonShingen and Shingen’s daughter, Mariko. Yashida offers to conduct a transplant, removing Logan’s immortality and transferring it to himself. Logan refuses and prepares to leave the following day. That night, while Logan dreams of Jean, Yashida’s doctor, the mutant Viper, injects a robotic parasite in Logan’s system, which affects his healing factor. The next morning, Logan is informed that Yashida has died, and attends the funeral, where he saves Mariko from Yakuzaassassins with help from Yashida’s associate Kenuichio Harada, a skilled archer and Mariko’s former lover, who still loves her. In the process, Logan is shot and finds out he is not healing as before.

After fighting more assassins on a bullet train, Logan and Mariko hide in a local hotel. While Mariko sleeps, Logan stands guard outside and experiences another hallucination of Jean before passing out from his injuries. When he awakens, he discovers that Mariko had the hotel owner’s grandson, a veterinarian, stitch him up. Meanwhile, Harada meets with Viper who, after demonstrating her mutant powers on him, demands he find Logan and Mariko.

Logan and Mariko go to Yashida’s house in Nagasaki. As they slowly fall for each other, Logan starts revealing his past to Mariko. Meanwhile, Yukio has a vision of Logan dying, and goes to warn him. However, she is too late and Mariko is captured. After interrogating one of her kidnappers, Logan goes to confront Mariko’s fiance, corrupt Chief of Justice Noburo Mori, who reveals that Shingen has ordered the kidnapping.

At Yashida Corporation’s headquarters, Shingen reveals Yashida has left Mariko his empire, and prepares to kill her when Harada arrives with his Black Ninja clan and Viper; Harada rescues Mariko, while Viper poisons Shingen. They then take Mariko to a research center based in Yashida’s home town.

Arriving at Yashida Corporation with Yukio, Logan uses Yashida’s medical technology to locate the parasite and extract it, but appears to die during the operation. Yukio is attacked by Shingen, who prepares to kill her when Logan awakens and intervenes, killing Shingen. Logan and Yukio then follow Harada and Viper to the research center, where Logan is attacked and captured by Harada and his men.

Logan is placed in a machine by Viper, who reveals her plans to extract his immortality and introduces Logan to her associate, theSilver Samurai, who has an adamantium sword and the ability to charge it with energy to increase its cutting power. After talking with Harada, who believes he is protecting her still, Mariko escapes and manages to direct the machine Logan is in into the Silver Samurai’s sword strike, breaking it and freeing him. Harada sees the error of his ways and is killed by the Silver Samurai while helping Logan escape. Meanwhile, Yukio arrives and defeats Viper by hanging her, while Logan fights the Silver Samurai, who cuts off his adamantium claws and begins to extract Logan’s healing abilities, revealing himself to be Yashida, who had faked his death and starts to regain his youth. Mariko intervenes and stabs Yashida with the discarded claws, giving Logan the opportunity to disable the armor with his bone claws and throw Yashida off a cliff before passing out. While unconscious, Logan hallucinates about Jean in a white room, but decides to finally move on. Before he wakes, Jean remarks that she is all alone there.

Mariko becomes CEO of Yashida Corporation and bids farewell to Logan as he prepares to leave Japan. Yukio vows to stay by Logan’s side as his bodyguard, and they depart to places unknown.

In a post-credits scene, Logan returns to the United States two years after the events in Japan, and watches an ad for Trask Industries and their advances in the field of robotics before being confronted by Magneto(with his powers restored). Magneto announces that Logan’s help is required to stop a new enemy that threatens to exterminate the mutant race. When Logan inquires why he should trust Magneto,Professor Charles Xavier arrives to reassure him. Logan is surprised to see Xavier alive as Xavier reminds Logan that he is not the only one with gifts.

My view of the film

Ok I am not a Huge fan Of Marvel or DC but I do have to say after watching the first film I definitely wanted to watch this one..

[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rh1LdTFkm7I%5D

you can see now why I was “omg we have to go see this !!”
and let me tell you I was on the edge of my seat ! graphics were Epic and characters I have to say Hugh as always great actor and even better as Logan.
Yukio I was very much taken by this actress there was so much within this, what looked like timid lady that after meeting her on screen showed she was not timid she was a kick ass girl and not to be reckoned with.
the other main characters were also very good, the scene setting and background information given from Tokyo prison of war, the showing of Logan doing good for human Kind was as I can put it heart warming,
this film without giving to much away is a must see !

I have found inspiration from Yukio

August is here

To say I’m anxious is somewhat of an understatement,
this full week is going to be a hard one for me to take in, I bid on a new property to move to
fingers are tightly crossed please ??

and today I have my Driving Theory test, all the times I have practised; some passes and mostly fails but this is due to over thinking the questions.. mostly fails by a mear one or 2 points but looking back on the questions I kick myself as I know the answers which would be a pass.

lets just say this week till September really is a is lady luck on my side ?
massive life changing stuff going on and it lies within the balance of Luck, concentration and determination

as told in previous posts when I hit my 30’s I went into a massive down spiral with the fact where have I come to within my life ?
do you ever get the feeling of so many wasted years yearning for other things ?

bearing in mind I am now not as nervous as I had been earlier; faced my daemons fear of Tests and exams ect and did it. I didn’t think I was going to pass first time just getting there and doing it the first time was enough.

anyway I passed my hazard hurraahhh but.. failed the theory by 12.. oh well not to worry I have a starting point and the areas I need to work on so here is hoping the next try I pass…

August Is a month for my mums birthday near the end of it so thinking caps on for presents ,

what do you have planned for the month of August ? and any ideas on mothers birthday presents lol ??
