I’ve been working like crazy the past few days boooo :(, so there’s not been much excitement, except that I have new fish for my tank 😀 eeeeeeeeep. I love fish they are so agile and pretty and there’s something soothing about them that’s really beautiful. Me and my flat mate acquired a fish tank from a guy we know from work when we moved in and were incredibly desperate to get it up and running. Not realising that its a bit of a farce, but it was totally worth it. Our first fish died which was super dooper sad, but out of the sadness appeared a little baby snail who’s egg had come in with the plants we bought. Here’s Gary, our tank mascot 🙂 .
Then shortly after, a friend of ours stayed over for the night and as a thanks for having her over she bought us some new fish, which was a complete shock but one of the best thankyou presents I think I’ve ever had! So then appeared, Bert, Ernie and Mildred, they’re in the top left hand corner (black, silver and orange). We had these guys in the tank for a good 4/5 weeks before we got any more fish so the tank could get used to being occupied (sounds daft, but it has to), and we could master cleaning the tank, which is mega grim and stinky and eeew, so then I surprised my flat mate with these guys! Meet Biggie and Brian (the bigger two angel fish) and dipsy, lala and po, in the bottom by Skully (i don’t like purple so there’s no tinky winky sorry guys).
Also sorry about the picture quality, I only have my phone at the moment and trying to catch a good shot of moving fish is a pain in the bum.
So there’s the tale of the tank 🙂
see ya soon guys xxx
Okie kokie then guys so this is the very start of my blog, its all very exciting :D. This is a place for me where I can share my interests, a bit of me and my life and all of the things I love the most.
So some bits and bobs about me; I live with my friend in our humble lickle flat, which we’re very blessed to have. Living out of your parents house is THE BOMB, do it as soon as you can I highly recommend :D, my other half lives near by with his two cheeky bulldogs who I will most definitely be introducing in the near future. I live work and socialise in a very close knit area, with a group of friends that are very dear to me and some of who coincidentally share my most loved hobby (which I’ll get to shortly :)) On top of that, I’m a qualified beauty therapist and extremely enthusiastic towards make up, hair, nails and all the shenanigans that go with it, so I definitely plan on sharing a whole bunch of that kind of stuff on here. I’m in love with clothes, shoes, jewellery; FASHION, I love a good trek around the shopping centres and the city and feeling like I’ve done a work out by the time I’m home due to the amount of shopping bags. There’s no feeling quite like it 🙂 But on top of allllllll that, my hobby and my job have something major in common. FOOD! I am crazy about food. My job title as a chef lives both at work and with me at home, I spend endless amounts of my time watching cooking programmes (mostly Jamie Oliver, his cooking taught me how), reading cook books, learning new ways to cook, food origins, making my own recipes or simply just improving on my technique there’s a whole bunch of my life that revolves around food and cooking.
Oh, my name is Ellis by the way 🙂
