My mum is a genius. A couple of weeks ago my mum started drinking smart Water and apparently it tastes better. Thanks to the amazingly difficult subject chemistry, I now know why it tastes different…no don’t worry I’m not going to bore you with a chem lesson. So anyway recently my mother has started putting fruits and some veg (E.g celery and cucumber) in her smart Water bottles. The first time I saw this I thought she was insane. Why would you want big chunks of fruit and things in your water, especially considering she hates and I mean HATES bits in her water. I’ll tell you why she did it why she created this:
Because it tastes AMAZING. Not only is it healthy for you but it encourages you to drink more water. The taste itself (depending what you put in it) is citrusy goodness. I honestly think this is one of the best things you can do with the smart Water and If you don’t do it for the taste, do it because it looks so pretty in the bottle with the fruit swirling around.
In short, this is one of my new favourite drinks and what’s convenient is that it can count as like all of your five a day…not that I actually pay attention to all of that but you know, when in Rome…
Go and try this marvellous creation it tastes soo good and looks beautiful.

So about two years ago I really wanted a guitar and after not getting one for my birthday I was really disapointed. But about three months after that I got my first ever guitar and his name is miles. So anyway when I first got miles I wanted to cry (not literally) but it was so annoying having this thing I’ve always wanted and not being able to use it. I didn’t want guitar lessons as at the time I was fairly busy but I noticed one of my teachers could play a guitar so I asked if after school one day (after my science revision) if he would teach me. That I think was a very weird conversation but he said yes. So for about a month he would stay behind every Wednesday and teach me the basics. But after about two weeks I slowly stopped going. Not sure why but I did so all little me knew at that time was the basic major chords : E, C and G. I remember thinking this is a good start because now I can play a song but few songs go E,C,G and that was all I could do and what’s worse is I could only do them in that order.
Looking back now I feel so sorry for little me. So after trying to get my teacher to teach me I decided I’d teach myself. For a further month or two I would come home from school after revision and watch millions of guitar tutorials per day. Which did and didn’t help. The people often went too fast and as I was below even a beginner I often didn’t know where they were telling me to put my fingers. But through determination I found a way to teach myself how to play my guitar.
So by now it’s around July 2013 and after teaching myself a) the “language” meaning just where things are and how to number your strings, B) more chords and c) more interesting strumming patterns than the down,down,down pattern I used before. I was ready to call myself a beginer.
Now its 2015 and I can play a range of chords and strumming patterns and it’s all thanks to my determination. I am the queen of putting things off but I felt really proud knowing I taught myself how to do something moderately hard. So Ive crossed out “learn how to play an instrument” as I can now play two (and a half= violin but I didn’t really like it so I stopped trying) instruments. Miles and my ukulele are like babies to me and I think if you don’t play an instrument you should definitely try and teach yourself. It’s frustrating but it gets better and in the end it’s very rewarding, it can work as a form of stress relief…
Let me know if you want me to make a post about helping you learn how to play an instrument or some tutorials…
See You Soon,
