  • Baron, my dog, because he’s always there for me even after I yell at him for always being under my feet
  • Jason for always being there during my ramblings and breakdowns
  • Nuala for teaching me that it’s okay to be me and to ignore anyone who tries to tell me differently
  • Mary for always making me laugh and being there when I need someone to just sit with
  • Lauren, Jade, Lauren, Lily, Emily, Em, Ashley, Em, Chanté, Melissa, Francesca, Eloise, Becca, Becca, Jodie, Meg, Toni, Ellie, Nusha, Jordanne, Cathy, Summer, Hannah, Sarah, Sonam and Ana (otherwise known as the Girl Power Girls) for all their support and chat and help.
  • Mary for always being there to give support and encouragement just when I need it the most
  • My books, for transporting me out of my world and into another
  • John, for always managing to make me smile

Thank you

Today I wanted to write a different kind of post. One that thanks someone who has really supported me recently, especially with these resits and everything else that’s been going through my mind. 1 Week Mary, I can’t actually thank you enough.
Thank you. Between your comments, advice and tweets, you’ve kept me going through the last lot of days. You somehow seem to know exactly what to say and when, and always manage to get me to smile – regardless of how my day’s going. You’re incredible at writing posts, too. They’re written so well and it’s clear that you’re interested in each one you write. With the perfect balance of humour, your posts provide a great place to come and read for a while, to forget any negativity, and restart my efforts with a new-found energy. I don’t know how you do it! 

Your positivity shines through all your words, whether on Twitter or on your blog, and helps lift those of us who have the pleasure of talking with you. Even just these little conversations during BeeChat inspired me to keep going! 

So, to finish off, thank you for all your support and for inspiring me to keep going. Keep up your amazing work!

99?!


When did this happen?? I have no idea how to thank you all for following me and actually sometimes reading my rambles! 
I am so so grateful for all the follows. Not sure how to go about celebrating but I’m definitely going to do something when I reach 100 followers – so comment with suggestions! 

Thank you once again!

Wow Thanks!

Good morning friends!

 

I woke up this morning to discover that Life With Ktkinnes has reached 69 followers! How did we manage that??

 

I’d like to thank each of you for taking the time to read, comment on and like the posts, a lot of the time they’re just me rambling away about different things. However, the fact that you still follow me and occasionally give me a like really lifts my mood and inspires me to write more.

 

The goal for 2016 was to get 70 followers – we’re almost there and it’s not even half way through March yet!

 

If you have any suggestions on what I should write about next, or anything in particular that has made you stop and think recently then please feel free to message me or comment.

 

I’m now live on twitter at kvburton657, but have once again removed myself from Facebook as Kt Kinnes. However I can be found on snapchat as katiekinnes. Add me or follow me and keep in the know about everything!

 

Since it is almost 11am, I should probably get on with some work or cleaning. It’s my kitchen week and I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to clean somewhere! Hope your day is as exciting as mine!

THANK YOU!

Thank you so so much! I’ve just been informed by my WordPress App that, not only has lifewithktkinnes reached 41 followers, but we just reached 100 likes!

  
This is fantastic and I am fully aware that this would not be possible without each of you that read my posts. So thank you!
Wish me luck for the exam in the morning! Still waiting for the miracle to happen…

Jetting off

Tonight my case is zipped up and beside the door. My passport is beside my bed and the alarm is about to be set. It’s been a busy day!

This morning on Facebook I saw an interesting article on saving money, the link can be found here. Basically it suggests, for anyone who has difficulty saving money, that for every non essential thing you buy, you put the equivalent amount of money into a savings account. This in principle should work and I will definitely give it a go when I’m back in student ville but for now I shall happily keep spending money on “luxuries” as food is being covered by the parents. Hopefully next summer I’ll have a better job and will be able to help out with the cost of living at home! Now if only the government would stop giving us a student loan based on our parents’ income… 

Another thing I would like to briefly mention is another website that I would ask a few of you to maybe look at? I have a friend who writes fanfic on this website and, having only found out about it last night, I decided that tonight I shall have a proper nosy through it before attempting to sleep. Yesterday’s post was based on Les Mis and can be found here http://archiveofourown.org/works/4472012

I hope she doesn’t mind but I’ve copied and pasted it to here so all credit goes to her, I just wanted to share it.

The worst part is, Eponine can’t even hate Cosette. Cosette is lovely and kind and genuinely nice and oh it stings because Cosette and Marius are perfect for each other. Similar but complementary and almost sickening sweet together. She is the best person for him. And Marius deserves the best. 
Marius deserves someone like Cosette. Someone who can make him happy- and Cosette does make him happy. Eponine can see it, in the way he’s smiling more and laughing more, in the way he’s more confident.
But everyone just acts so sorry for her and she hates it. Enjolras asks her opinions on things. Combeferre lends her books. Chetta invites her round for movie nights. Nothing that they haven’t done before, and she’s grateful for it, she is. But it feels like they’re hovering anxiously, waiting for her to break down. 
She isn’t going to, though. She’s been pining after Marius for years. If anything she should be thanking Cosette. Maybe now she can finally get over him. 
But she sees them together and she just wants to shout at Cosette. “How does it feel?! How does it feel to be adored by him?” Because Marius does adore Cosette. There’s no other word for it. She can see it in his eyes when he talks about Cosette, when he looks at her. 
Cosette is so pretty, with her butterscotch hair and her lovely blue eyes. But more than that, Cosette is good. Eponine is jaded and bitter, but Cosette just feels so much. She’s had a hard life and she’s came through smiling anyway. She sees the joy and the hope and the beauty in everything. 
And Eponine could never, ever match up to that. 
So she goes dancing with Jehan and drinking with Grantaire, because they understand unrequited love as much as she does. 
And she acts like she’s fine and Cosette bakes cupcakes and cookies and brings them to the meetings and Eponine smiles and laughs and inside she’s hurting, breaking. 
Because Eponine can’t be anything more than she is. And Marius has never loved her for that. And he never will. 

Finally, as a brief ending to what has been a longer post than I expected, I just wanted to say another huge thank you to everyone who reads my posts. Every view, like and comment means a lot to me so thank you very much! Good luck for the upcoming week!
