Hey guys welcome back to my post, this is a up-to date post written at the minute. A bit different but i think its good to show you guys that life is not always a rainbow, we bloggers, influence’s, actors, all have our good days and our bad days like everyone else.
As you know if you follow me on Instagram, i was away for a week in Portugal, went with my parents and was a much deserved relaxing holiday, only not as relaxing as i had though. We had a few things to deal with and sort out, so we done a lot of walking and getting up early.
On Wednesday we walked hell of a lot due to parking spaces and sorting out paperwork, the city we are from has lots of hills and stairs so that also made it super tiring, At night time i was already filling pain but though it be OK next day after a long sleep, but NO! When i woke up my back and ribs hurt, walking hurt, breathing hurt… but i still had a few things to do in the city so made a effort and went out. Night time i was exhausted and in pain.
The pain carried on throughout the rest of the holiday. On Monday night after going to watch Aladdin with friends and meet another friends for lunch, the pain had gone even worse! Carrying my backpack, pulling my luggage and walking a lot again on the Saturday did not help, so on Monday i was in so much pain that i came straight to bed hoping Tuesday (Today), i would be better and able to return to work.
Woke up at 7,30 went the alarm rang, but when i tried to turn to snooze it….i could not move!! The pain was so much that i do not remember feeling this much pain ever. I seriously could not move at all the pain wold shoot down my back and make me so dizzy, i called my sister to tell her so she called my GP who prescribed Naproxen and later in the morning a doctor would call to see how i was feeling.
My sister had to help me sit up to take my tablets and even with help the pain is horrible. I sat in bed for most of the day, as any other position would make the pain worse, when the doctor called he said that there was not much to do with my scoliosis walking, running, carrying heavy things or even sleeping wrong will cause the more pain to me than to someone who has not got spine problems.
So today was a bed day, nothing but sit up and doing nothing, then i though i might as well do this blog, keep you guys up to date and have you see that behind the scenes not all is what it looks!
on road to recovery and hopefully back to normal soon!
Have a great evening all and thank you once again for the support, See you on my next post.
Hey guys welcome back, first of all want to apologies for not posting the last couple of weeks, been super busy behind the scenes. I am back now and this week there will be two posts to compensate you!
Olà Malta bem vindos, primeiro queria pedir desculpa de não ter postado nas ultima semanas, tenho andado ocupada atras disto. Mas voltei e esta semana saira dois posts para Vos compensar!
Who has been to London or lives in London, and gone on the River Themes cruise?I have been twice now, once many years ago with friends and this time with family. Both times went to the same place but i just love it.
Quem ja esteve em Londres ou vive ca, ja foi ao cruseiro do Rio Themes? EU ja fui duas veses, a primera vez a muito anos atras com amigos e agora desta vez com a familia. Ambas as veses fui para o mesmo sitio e adorei.
So we decided that for the long weekend we would do something different, i booked the cruise tickets which really was not expensive for the type of cruise we got, i was expecting those little boats that hardly has any coverage and you feel the water splattering at you. We paid £14 each to go from Westminster Pier to Greenwich, we sat inside where there was long tables, bathrooms, a bar and was so warm thank god. Then if you wanted you could go to the upper deck of the cruise where obviously the view is much better, they had sitting area too and a little cover in case it rained which thank god it did not! The journey to Greenwich took bout 1h, the tour guide tells you what monuments you are passing and their history, (not that we paid any attention to it).
A familia entao decidio que no fim de semana Longo iamos fazer algo diferente, entao marquei os bilhetes que sincerament nao foi caro para o tipo de barco que nos calhou, EU estava a espera de estar nos barcos pequenos que nao tem muita cobertura e sentes a agua e ficas toda molhada. Pagamos £14 por cada pessoa de Westminster Pier ate Greenwich, ficamos na part de baixo do barco onde havia muita mesas, casa de banho e um bar e estava Tao quentinho la dentro gracas a deus. Em cima entao ers tudo aberto e a vista Linda… mas estava frio entao nao fiquei la muito tempo. O cruseiro afe Greenwich demora uma hora, e temos um guia que nos vais dizendo onde passamos, que historias is predios e barcos tem (nao que a gente tivesse tomado attencao).
when we got to Greenwich, we walked around to find a place to have a picnic (even dough the weather was not a picnic one, but mum wanted to have one), we walked around a big park and found a little corner where the wind was calmer, we took out the food and dived in to it!
Quando chegamos a Greenwich, caminhos a procura de um sitio para fazermos o picnic (embora on tempo nao fosse bom para isso, mas a Mae Mae queria entao a gente fez ne), entao encontramos um parque e num cantinho onde nao batia o evento, a gente atracou-se a comida!
My brother in law loves history and all the old buildings, so as excepted he had googled important stuff to see, we walked up to the Meridian Line, which at the time i had no clue what he was on about and we all looked so confused, it was a long climb to get to the so called LINE, half way up i was out of breath (how unfit am i ), but the view….was amazing! You could see so much from up there, the green, the buildings, the fresh air! I am a fresh air nature person, so views, parks and water is where i love to be!
O meu Cunhado ama historia entao ele ja sabia os sitios onde queria ir, ja tinha visto no Google e la fomos nos atras dele, a subida para chegar ao Meridian Line era Tao grande que EU chegei a meio Caminho tive de parar que eatava sem folgo e nem sequer sabiamos porque estavamos a subir aquilo todos estavamos confusos atras dele. Bem a vista la de cima era Linda, maravilhosa adoro tudo que tem haver com natureza, Campo, agua. E la que me encontram!
We walked around the Meridian line, there is a section that you can actually stand on the line but we had to pay for that,(we cheap so no-one wanted to go in). The day started to get cooler so we made the way back to the pier to catch the cruise back to Westminster, (the ticket was return too), seemed to take less time going back, i do not really know if it was because they wanted to get back faster as the trip was coming to an end or if it was because the river was rising, we could see the water was higher on the outside of the cruise. Anyhow we got back to Westminster and made our way back home. Was a great day out, i really do recommend it as a family trip but if possible maybe best in the summer so you can see the view from the upper deck and not freeze your butt off!
Caminhamos por la, e ah uma seccao que podes meter os pes na linha Meridian mas era preciso pagar, entao como somos forretas niguem quis la ir. Para o fim o dia comecou a refecer entao comecamos a caminhada de volta ao barco que nos leva-va de volta a Westminster, o bilhetes ja incluia voltar para traz. Parece que demoramos menos tempo de volta a Londres do que quando fomos, nao sei se era porque queriam chegar mais rapido para poderem ainda levar mais gente ou se era por o nivel do Rio estava a subir e a agua ja molhava o barco todo. Chegams Rapids como Disse, e de la a casa e um saltinho. FOI um dia muito bem passada wm familia adorei! Se ainda n fizeran entao e um trip que EU rexomendo, mas se possivel facam na altura do verao vai saber ainda melhor xok o solzingo e poder ir na part dr cima do barco sem ficar com o cu congelado!
That was my day trip,hope you enjoyed this post and i will see you on my next post. Thank you for all the support and being here to read and give me the feedback.
E pronto este e o post de hoje um piuck de mim e do meus dias com a familia, espero que Denham gostsdo. Mais uma vez obrigada por todo o apoio que me Dao. Ate o proximo
See you soon.
Hey guys welcome back to another post! Today’s is a little more “political”. If you live in London you have heard of the famous ULEZ I have had enough of it and it has not even started! What is ULEZ you ask? well if you live in London and you have a car but you have not heard of it…then god be with you. Let me try and explain what it is in case some of you have not read about it.
Ola Maltinha, bem vindos a mais um post! Hoje e um pouco mais “politico”. Se moram em Londres ja ouviram falar do famoso ULEZ eu ja estou farta e ainda nem chegou! O que e o ULEZ perguntam voces? Bem…se moras em Londres, tens um carro mas ainda nao ouvis-te falar disto… entao deus te ajude! Vou tentar explicar incaso que alguns de voces ainda nao tenho percebido.
ULEZ stands for Ultra -low Emission Zone, so at the moment in central London, you drive in to that zone you have to pay a fee, it is running 24/7 Monday to Sunday 24h. Why? According to our Government it will help cut down pollution and help protect our environment. They had this a few years ago where any petrol run cars would pay a fee also to enter central London, that DID NOT cut down pollution or congestion! Why they think this will…is out of my knowledge.
ULEZ em ingles chama-se Ultra -low Emission Zone (Zona de emissao ultra baixa), neste momento todo o centro de Londres ja tem este esquema, se conduzires no centro de Segunda a Sexta 24h por dia, ja pagas. Porque? De acordo com o governo vai ajudar a reduzir a poluicao e protejer o nosso meio ambiente. Eles ja tiverem uma idea similante a alguns anos atras onde todos os carros a Gasolina pagariam uma taxa para circular no centro, isso NAO fez com que a poluicao ou o trafego fosse menos! Porque e que eles pensam que este vai foncionar nao faco a minima idea!
Starting from April 2021 this area will be extended from NORTH CIRCULAR in towards London, so not only will you pay entering central London but, if the car is anywhere between the North circular towards London, can be just parked up, not used daily, but you in that area, you PAY £12 daily! (NOW THE PRICE IS WHAT I HAVE HEARD NOT 100% SURE THIS IS THE FEE) but the point is.. YOU PAY!!
Em April 2021 esta area vai ser estendida apartir da NORTE CIRCULAR para dentro de Londres, entao nao so vais pagar se entrars nesta zona mas… basta teres o teu carro estancionado na zona (se moras na zona e so usas o carro no fim de semana) pagas automaticament £12 por dia! (Bem o preco e que ouvi por ai nao sei bem se e mesmo as doze). MAS O QUE AQUI INTRESSA E QUE PAGAMOS!!
HOW CAN YOU AVOID THIS FEE YOU ASK? WELL… by spending more money on changing your car! FABULOUS RIGHT? Unless your car passes the tests, if it is a petrol car (so going back to what was banned years ago), EURO 6 engine cars if your a Diesel or no older than 2015. Does this make sense to you? NOOOOO
COMO PODEM EVITAR ESTAS TAXAS PERGUNTAM VOCES? ENTAO….gastando dinheiro para comprar um carito novo! FABULOSO CERTO?? A nao ser que o teu carro passe nas qualificacoes deles e e, seja a Gasolina maximo de 2006 para cima (os tais carros que a anos empidiram de andar no centro), motor EURO 6 se for carro a diesel e que nao seje menos do que ano 2015. Isto faz sentido? NAOOOO
Now i am trying to find a dealer that will take my currant car as part-exchange, looking for a Ford, Hyundai or a Nissan. I would love to go for an Audi but lets say its a little out of my pocket.
Agora ando a procura de um sitio que aceite o meu carro em troca de peca, queria um Ford, Hyundai ou um Nissan. O que eu adorava mesmo era um Audi mas digamos que o meu bulso esta um pouco vazio para isso!
I done this post because to be honest i do not understand the point of this new scheme, maybe if you understand better then please do explain to me, right know i just see it as a way of the government making money out of us and a reason for us to be spending unnecessary money (my KIA is still a great car, has hardly any millage, never given me any problems besides the turbo at the beginning, and i love my little car!).
Eu decidi fazer este artigo porque sincerament eu nao percebo para que meter este esquema, talvez se algum de voces que moram ca em Londres perceberem melhor por favor diga-me, porque neste momento e vejo isto como uma forma de nos sacarem mais dinheiro (o meu Kia ainda esta um carro optimo , nao tem muitas milhas, nunca me deu problemas a nao ser o turbo no principio mas eu AMO o meu carrito!)
Hope this helps you guys understand. I will try keep you updated with my car search and when i can buy my new car. Until then hope you enjoy my posts, and that you can continue to support me like you have until now. See you on my next post!
Espero que tenha ajudado a perceber melhor isto. Vou tentar vos manter actualizados com o processo do meu carro. Ate la espero que tenham gostado deste artigo, e que posso continuar a contar com o vosso apoio. Ate o meu proximo post malta!!!
