Another attempt at silencing NHC

So I saw this on Timeouts blog. How are residents still complaining when in most cases Carnival was there before them? Not that I really get to take in the Sound systems because I'm too busy jumping in a band, but I'm glad people petitioned. Some people won't stop until Nottinghill Carnival is shut down renamed and moved to the confines of  a park where they control who enjoys it by charging an entrance fee and getting 'Urban' (which can mean anything nowadays) artists to perform. Also the weird thing is when I'm jumping I see most residents enjoying carnival either on their roof or hanging out their windows dancing or even making money by selling drinks or use of their toilet so it really makes me wonder who these people are who are complaining. It's not like it goes on for weeks it's literally a 2 day moving event. Surely if you hate it that much you could take yourself off on a nice relaxing break and come back a few days later when it's done and all the mess is cleared up, Simple. This is one of the biggest and best free events in the world, a lot of locals and visitors look forward to it each year. People even fly in from around the world to experience it! I think a lot of people need to read up on the history of carnival then they will see why it's so important obviously to black history but it helps non West Indians learn or see our culture for what it is and not the negative stereotype the media portray it to be. Also this event brings everyone together so why you would try end an events that brings unity makes no sense to me.

Also if you've never experienced Nottinghill Carnival it's celebrating it's 50th year at the end of the month so if that is not reason enough to go check it out heres more reasons why you should go:

Does anyone else wanna get sick?

So after my stupid IBS started acting up I then woke up one a couple weeks ago with swollen glands, OMG it was sooo painful and my whole body was aching to the point where I couldn't move from my bed. My kids actually had to massage my back for me so I could get up, then when I did get up I couldn't even walk properly because both my back and my stomach were hurting so much. Lucky for me I had told my mum the night before that I didn't feel right and she's obviously psychic because she turned up at mine at like 7.30am that same morning to help out.
I then started to spit blood then felt dizzy and unbalanced and my ears were blocked and I was just really achey it was not fun.

Assuming I probably just had the flu and was a bit run down I took some Paracetamol extra, drank lots of water and tried to get rest while my mum looked after the kids for me.

Then I realized Cali holding her throat (she's not done that since she had her operation) and saying her throat was really hurting. She then developed a cough and just didn't look her normal self. So I thought Oh great I've given her the flu. So I kept her hydrated gave her Calpol and made her lie down on the sofa and rest.

Then my mum calls me and sounds terrible and says how her glands are swollen and she pretty much has the same symptoms as me and Cali, so that's now 2 people I'd given the flu to.

So then as my mum was too ill to help out and I was still too weak to have them by myself, I had to rely on their dad (which is something I hate doing as he's only reliable when he fancies it) to help out....

So by the time I was a bit better I noticed Cali was covered head to toe in a rash (which I immediately knew was a viral thing as she had it before when she was a lot younger and I had thought it was chicken pox) and she was also hot and saying down below was itching her. I then remembered she had wet her bed quite a few times the previous week, which is not like her at all. Then immediately knew it wasn't the flu she had a urine infection.

So then we both go to the doctors and come to find out we both have a chest infection and both need antibiotics and just as I guessed Cali also had a urine infection. Now this is the weird thing, this same time last year both me and Cali got a chest infection at exactly the same time and were both on antibiotics for the 1st few days of our holiday. I know because both Cali and I have Asthma we are more prone to chest infections, but, it's just bizarre that it happened around the same time last year. I can't wait for the antibiotics to kick in because chest infections really are not fun I have felt sooooo ill.

But at least RD hasn't caught anything, because you know how boys are when they're sick... He's actually been lovely, when I was at my worst he kept checking on me and rubbing my head and making sure I was OK, bless him.

Make up


Every year around summer time I always get myself a new eye-shadow palette. I normally get a limited edition from Sleek because the colours are normally crazy and vibrant, but this year I really wanted one that contained a bright blue and unfortunately Sleek didn't have the colours I needed. But I did find another one by MUA in Superdrug for £4 and it had the most vibrant colours. I did test it to check for a reaction as my skins quite sensitive to make up (don't even get me started on lip gloss, I can only wear Mac) and it's fine. So I'm now looking forward to trying out all these crazy colours over the summer.
