“Believe in yourself a little more”
1 . A lady left a really nice comment on one of my Safari Night blog posts. “Love Alexandra. She is a very talented and beautiful lady. She has time for everyone that she meets. If you get chance you really do need to hear this lady play.”
What a lovely message, it really touched me. I do have time for everyone that I meet. To me, that part of a show is just as important as my performance.
2. I discovered a cheesecake in the freezer that my Mum made well over a year ago (thought I’d best bin it, in case it’s not ok to eat, but felt guilty about doing so), any way, as I tipped it out, the base was chocolate chip cookies. Sort of wished I had eaten it, food poisoning or not haha. This is my mum. She was the most beautiful person inside and out, that I could ever have had the pleasure of knowing.
3 . Had a trip to Costco and when I got home I poured myself a glass of milk. I thought “Wow, that’s thick for milk”. It turned out I’d bought 2 big bottles of double cream *slaps forehead*
4 . I received such a lovely heart warming message from a guy I know who owns a PR Company…
I have lots of positive influences in my life as I am surrounded by amazing people, my friends, my dad, and my boyfriend who could not be more supportive if he tried. I feel blessed, and lucky to have such great people around me.
6 . I could NOT stop laughing at this video (Please Note: There is swearing in this video)
7 . My Facebook Fan page hit 5000 likes YAY – to like my page it’s www.facebook.com/officialalexandraparker
Come on 🙂 give me some love ❤
9 . Don’t you just love autocorrect?! Lee booked me in as a surprise for a massage at The Willows in epworth. I was texting my friend suzy and said, “Got to go to willies now,” thankfully she knew what I meant haha but still replied with, “Willies LMAO !!! Enjoy your willies ❤ ❤ ❤ haha”
10 . Oh, I’ve been gardening. Mum would laugh so much at me. I always hated gardening and getting my hands dirty, she’d be so surprised. I’ve even been learning plant and flower names, I know, shocking haha. There are two huge stone ‘tubs’ which dads mum bought my parents, and I wanted them more on show, either side of the greenhouse doors, but trying to lift them was equivalent to lifting the Vulcan Aircraft. So I called Lee (my boyfriend). The entire time that he was trying to get them up the garden (which is huge) I laid on the floor crying with laughter. I mean, he is a seriously strong man which is probably why it was even funnier. He was successful though 🙂 i’d take a photo but the greenhouse interior needs more organisation haha…may be another blog hey?!
Before I sign off, I have something that I would like to say to you…
Make sure that you take time to do the things that you love, however big or little they may be, like having a bubbly bath, or turning your mobile phone off for a couple of hours just to be quietly on your own. Of course we all have to go out there and work to earn money, but what is the point in earning money, if you can’t enjoy it, even just a little bit of it? Take a little time for yourself. Buy that pair of shoes you’ve been looking at for the past 4 weeks. Go eat cake with your friend. Buy that little thoughtful gift that you know will make somebody smile.
Lots of love xxxxxxx
