The New Heroes I found in 2013

So seeing as it is only a about one hour and ten mintues until 2014 (gee, we're all getting so old!) I thought I'd do one of those '2013' posts. And so this post is about heroes who I discovered this year.

Sir Luca Forelli-from the River of Time series, by Lisa T. Bergren. Now, if you read the first three books. i.e. Waterfall, Cascade and Torrent chances are that you won't get to hear that much about Luca, he's usually in the background adding a humorous quip in the background. He's got green eyes and he's blonde and as we all know Vellvin has this thing for blonde guys. No idea why. :) Luca is committed, kind and determined. He's captain of the Forelli guard and is very stern when it comes to his duty. He's a bit of a flirt but that's only to the one girl that he really, really likes. And his patient, it's quite obvious that he really likes her, but he waits patiently to see what she thinks about him. He's a fun-loving passionate guy. And he's pretty amazing with a sword. Before reading the two novellas I liked Marcello better than Luca, now I think it's the other way around.

Sherlock Holmes- I discovered Sherlock Holmes only the start of this year when watching the BBC T.V. show Sherlock. After watching that I quickly read 'A Study in Scarlet' 'The Sign of the Four' 'The Adventure of Sherlock Holmes' 'The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes' and I am almost finished 'The Return of Sherlock Holmes'. It's safe to say that I'm a Sherlockian I think. Do not speak to me of the Robert Downey Jr. Sherlock Holmes movies, we turned the first movie off within the first forty-five minutes, and don't speak to me about that rip-off off a T.V. show called Elementary either. Sherlock Holmes has two characters for me. The gentleman of the original stories, and the sometimes uncaring sociopath of the BBC T.V. show who actually is not a 'high functioning sociopath'. as he so heated;y points out to Anderson. This Sherlock Holmes would be horrible to be around in real life, but I like him anyway. Plus, he has a really cool trench coat and scarf and who can argue with his marvelous deductions?

Percy Jackson-I read all of the Percy Jackson/Heroes of Olympus books this year. Except for House of Hades, which I was rather disgusted with after a certain thing happened in the book. Anyway, Percy's a really nice guy. He's smart, independent, and rather good with a sword. We see him mature from a twelve-year-old boy to a seventeen-year-old young man. He's usually the person with the funny lines, which are usually pointed insulting at people he doesn't like. Like Hera for instance. He is extremely loyal to his friends and his resourceful no matter what. He can control water and summon a hurricane, and just so everyone knows, he's better than Jason.

Batman/Bruce Wayne- Okay, so this year I finally saw the Christopher Nolan, Batman movies. True, these movies aren't made by Marvel, but that doesn't mean that they are any less great than some of the Marvel movies. They are also, (in my opinion) more dark and yes, pun intended as they are known as the Dark Knight Trilogy. When we first meet Bruce he's a little eight-year-old boy who's fallen down a hole to a cave where bats live. And he hates them. Next day, boom his parents get shot, fun, fun. We fast forward a little bit and he's a stupid irresponsible young man who no thought really, of what to do with his life. Then he starts to travel the world, to find a way to fight injustice, is trained by Ra's A Guhl but does not think that they're methods are right. Killing for killing and such. And he says that this is what draws the line between good and bad, and I've got to agree with him. He's a smart, smooth guy. With some nice Lamborghinis if I might add, but he sacrifices a lot in him being Batman.

And the fact that he got a happily ever after, starting a new life with Selina, getting married was great. Because he deserved it.

Connor-from Assassin's Creed 3. Okay, this guy is the only guy who I've put on here who is from a video game. I get attached to some strange characters but I actually spent quite a while just watching Saxon playing as Connor. I haven't even played all of his story. Most of what I've done with him is pick peoples pockets and get into fights. I don't usually do any of the missions. Just that sort of stuff. And I mean, Connor he's pretty cool, he gets to wear Assassin clothes, have cool weapons, and he's an Indian, so what's not to like?

And there you have it, everyone! My heroes of 2013. Amazing guys one and all! :D

God Bless

Answering a question......

Hey everyone. Sorry I haven't posted, first off I hope everyone had a happy and holy Christmas! 
I stole this picture from Una Mariah's blog. Petticoats and Muckboots. Only a few more days till season 3!
The reason for not posting? Well, first being really busy, then catching a stomach bug on the day before Christmas Eve (no pressure of course. :P ) and then recovering, going to midnight Latin Mass which, though I am sure was very beautiful I was pretty tired off after a while not to mention though there were fans on I was hot and very tired as I hadn't got hardly any sleep before we had to get ready. Then after we got home, we had our Christmas photo, I was a bit grouchy and still feeling really tired and still recovering from the bug. We had our Midnight feast, put our bags out and then I tried to get to sleep. At 3 o'clock in the morning, and I didn't sleep well. After being sick I confess the only reason I haven't blogged is because I've been enjoying being lazy, and slowing down. But I DID see the Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug yesterday and I WILL be working on a post about what I thought of it. Suffice to say for the moment I am proud of my title of 'Vellvin da Elven' after seeing it. I feel so cool. :D

NOTE: I would not recommend people under the age of fifteen reading this unless it had been pre-read by someone who you trust (like a parent) for instance. I just like to add this to any post which deals with any of these issues as it's better safe than sorry. And I do not mean to offend anyone, if you don't want to read it, then don't. But it is my site, and it is my right, too. 

On to the meat of the matter. I had this huge (and I mean huge) blog post and it was suppose to be a broken up into sections. Abortion, Homosexuality, Euthanasia, Contraception, Un-married couples living with each other and possibly divorce. But I have decided instead that I wanted to post one of the sections that I have completed. That being the Homosexuality section. 

Now, do you all remember my blog post on going to the walk for True Marriage? Well, I got this really weird comment from an anonymous person called 'D' great name by the way. :P And this is what it said:

Hey there. I'm a 14-year-old girl who just came across your blog. I'm also openly gay, and reading this post made me interested in hearing just why you hold these views about me and my people. Keep in mind that I'm not trying to be confrontational at all, I just really want to have a conversation with someone who thinks like you do. Have you ever thought about *why* gay people are supposedly wrong? Like, what is it about loving the same gender that is so horrible and disgusting? You say that you're against same-gender marriage. Do you think a gay person like me should just never find commitment, or do you just think we should never find love at all? I'm also interested in hearing what you would do if a close friend or relative of yours came out as gay, bi or transgender. Would you reject them, or...? It just honestly confuses me how someone my own age, or really, anyone, could hold these views. I don't think anyone is naturally inclined to despise gay people, I believe homophobia is a 

That's what it said and I was very ready to write an answer back but instead I've added it into this blog post seeing as this is what I am writing about. Also, this was from an anonymous commenter whom I'd never heard of before, who knew nothing about me, and wasn't even necessarily a fourteen-year-old girl, and if so, it looks like she's been brainwashed. And maybe, if 'D' is reading this, she may get an insight of why it is wrong, and what it is that such ludicrous ideas do to people. 

Homosexuality. Okay, so a few years back, I found out that people of the same gender thought they could marry each other! I didn't think that much of the matter until probably this year, where this thing, that people like to call 'gay marriage' even though it is clearly not marriage and its proper disgusting-throwing-up-worthy-term is actually Homosexuality. Yep, that's its actual term, and don't sugar-coat its name, because its not marriage. Marriage is between a Man and a Woman. You can be best friends with another girl or guy, you can still be friends with people of the same gender. You can still love them with a brotherly or sisterly love. But you cannot MARRY THEM!!! Or think you can! You cannot have the same love as a husband and wife share.
St. Joseph. 
 See this guy here. His name is St. Joseph. He was the foster father of Jesus, and head of the Holy Family. He is also patron of families. And you know what. Homosexuality is like, the destroyer of families. It's wrong, its immoral, and its just plain stupid. What morons people are if they think that they can do something like that! And no, its not a trend, so don't go saying 'it's the latest trend' either. And don't refer to honest-to-goodness-marriage as 'traditional marriage' either, as that makes you sound like you think that Homosexuality IS marriage, whereas it is not. Marriage is between a Man and a Woman. And that ain't ever gonna change. I was thinking the other day about The Princess Bride and about the old King who says 'won't that be nice' when Buttercup kisses him and then tells him how she is going to kill herself. WE CAN'T ACT LIKE THAT! We can't be all 'Oh it'll be alright, it's their life after all.' Because these are like the sheep without a shepherd. We can't be indifferent, we can't just stand by and let things like that happen! Because then we are no better than they are. We are accepting that it is okay, then. Because we have not stood up and told the world what we think. Okay, world, so wanna tell you something
True story. You will never ever change this! 

And it's the truth.
The people I know, I see the great examples and the example that my Mother and Father have given me all the days of my life, a true marriage is one where you help each other, give counsel to each other, and love each other. It's not perfect, (most certainly not) but it IS marriage. And funny story, that's because their is a father and a mother. :)
Portrait: 12.12.2013 AUSTRALIA HIGH COURT, NO to same sex 'marriage'

Our constitution today protected motherhood, childhood and family.
Our marriage laws are equal and not discriminatory; 
because it applies equally to gay and heterosexual people, 
as every Australian is free to marry a member of the opposite sex.

Australia Supporting Traditional Marriage
Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, Oy! Oy! Oy! 
My Mum and Dad have been married for more than twenty-five years (awesome right? :) ) and Mum wrote a blog post on it as well if you are interested. http://cherishedheartsathome.blogspot.com.au/2012/05/what-is-marriage.html And that's what marriage is. And also, if you have parent number one and parent number two not a Mum and a Dad, how can you create new life? The answer is, you can't. And then having children which is one of the things that a husband and wife have to be opened to before they are married when they are preparing marriage is that this is one of the most important rules of marriage. Openness to children. It is actually a requirement and if you say no (at least in the Catholic Church) you can't get married and it's not marriage then. So, therefore, don't go calling it 'gay marriage' because it lacks the depth, the truth, and the meaning of what real marriage is.  Also you can't create a human life. And if you adopt a child, what if it is a boy and he has two Mums how he is suppose to learn how to be a man? He can't that's the answer, and vice versa, this affect CHILDREN more than anything else, this selfish, stupid, immoral idea. So stop being selfish, think about what if it was you, and please, realise that it is wrong.

Ever time I listen to this song, I cry. This is what TRUE COMMITMENT IS!
So who's in for telling the world what we think? Because every little bit helps, prayer the most out of anything, though we might not see that as doing very much.

St. Joseph patron of families, protector of the Church, Pray for us! Lord Jesus, watch over us, help us to be peacemakers, and to love our neighbours always. No matter what they believe!

Advent, watching movies, Christmas present-making and surprises.

Well it seems that a lot of these post lately have been random updates on things. Frankly, I haven't had very much time to post at all. It's just been so busy!
Catholic Problems

Sunday was our anniversary of becoming Catholic seven years ago, and though I had started a blog post as you have probably observed, it didn't get published.

Advent has been great so far, and I am really enjoying our Advent study. One problem though, we really need to catch up on Jothams Journey and find out what happens, though I am of the firm belief that Nathan is the best in Bartholomew's Passage (beside that being my favourite).

It was really funny starting to read it because I was mouthing stuff to Saxon and Mum like 'Decha's he's uncle,' and "It's Decha!" And "Nathan is in the next chapter!" If you have never read any of the Arnold Yeetride books, three being Jothams Journey, Bartholomew Passage, and Tabithas Travels which are all advent books leading up to all of them meeting back in the manger where the newborn Jesus is sleeping.
I've been working on Christmas presents though I am not feeling overly rushed, I've only got a few things left but I wanted to share what I am making for my sister, Eden. Eden, if you are reading this do NOT scroll down.

Hopefully she's gone. Anyway here is what it is!

I am very, very proud of this. If you are wondering what it's connected to, it's a prequel/novella of Alan 'a' Dale before he met Robin Hood and after. It's really fun to write and is sort of a break from Outlaw. I even wrote a summary of it and I must say, though it's my first, I'm rather proud of it.

Summary: The son of a count. A nobleman. The right-hand man to one of history's most famous outlaws. Find out what happened to Alan 'a' Dale before he joined Robin Hood's gang, how he ran away from his father's castle in southern France, how he came to England as a minstrel, how he was one night rudely thrown out of a inn, and that very same night, while wandering through Sherwood, and feeling rather faint from lack of food, was saved by Robin Hood, himself. And now, journey with him as he tells the stories of the many adventures he, his chief, and friends and outlaws, embarked upon in their fight against injustice and tyranny.

I must echo my previous statement, I'm very happy with it. :)

I've been listening to quite a few things lately. Soundtracks, Christmas music, and one particular song 'What Makes You Different (Makes you Beautiful)' By Backstreet Boys. Which by the way I haven;t heard properly in years. :)

I've watched a few new movies, and watched a few Christmas ones as well.
Now You See Me vs Prestige

We got the Prestige out the other week and I saw it for the first time, luckily I wasn't the only one who hadn't seen it, my sister Autumn also hadn't seen it either. We also got 'Now You See Me' out just the other night. As you can see we are a bit into magicians at the moment. :D The twist with 'Now You See Me' was like, you felt so stupid! The Prestige's twist on the other hand was like 'What? And then, once again, I FEEL SO STUPID!!!' All us younger kids have also been walking around quoting 'The Lorax' which I finally saw all the way through and I thought it was really good. :)

Autumn surprised me the other day by coming home with a 'Man of Steel' poster for me. Needless to say it is hanging up already and I am very happy with it. :)

The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug will be released here on Boxing Day and I am very excited! It is my number one Christmas present. Some people are saying it is good, and some saying that it is bad. Me? Well, I'll go with the positive rather then the negative. I also need to read or skim (probably skim) over the middle part of the book. (I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE SPIDERS!!!)But not be too pure-isty about it either.
And no matter what people say about Tauriel, anyone who can give Legolas a talking to is awesome! Plus, she's a girl elf, she got red hair, and looks awesome. :D

I've also been hearing really good reviews about 'Frozen' and I really want to see it in theaters, of course if it was a choice of it or DOS I'd choose DOS.

Hmm, what other things have I been doing? Well, we hosted a Homeschoolers Christmas Party at our house and it was great! Learning to get to know the older girls a bit better then before. And organising an all-nighter at our house on the 20th of January. I also lended some of my books to one of my friends as I'd told her about them, she was very interested in borrowing my Sherlock Files as I introduced her to the show, and she likes it. :)

Now, the biggest surprise of my life of the past week or so? Yep, wait for it, I'll tell you. It was just an ordinary day, and I walked outside to do my guinea pigs, I walked to the top of the stairs that descend a few short steps to the outside laundry, and totally freaked myself out. Can you guess why? A snake was swiftly crawling away into the garage, a BROWN SNAKE!

Very aggressive and very, very dangerous, so that ended any play outside as you can imagine, Dad got home later, checked the garage and found that the snake had gone. Thank goodness for that. Since then, the line everyone has been using when someone goes outside is 'Watch out for snakes!'
Portrait: Gingerbread cookies

We've been Christmas cooking me and Myffwyn have been making Gingerbread.

And as a last note: Does anyone have any idea when Sherlock season 3 is released in Australia? I would assume that it would be the same as UK but not sure.
Anyway I'd better go.

God Bless

I went to a walk for True Marriage!

So last week I went to a Walk for True Marriage. And it was amazing! I felt so glad inside, so pleased that I was actually doing something other than talking about how marriage is between a man and a woman. Anyway, I should probably start from the beginning.
I had been rather worried that we wouldn't get to the walk because Mum and Dad have been away since Thursday afternoon through to late tonight. They went down to Kynan's Graduation (congrats bro!) and are now driving up to Sydney to pick up Autumn. Braedon and Anna-Lisa have been staying and looking after us, and so I wasn't sure that we would be going. I am so glad I was wrong. We got there in plenty of time and it was amazing like I said. There were so many people there! Some who I knew, some who I didn't. But that didn't matter, because we all had the same intent, to walk down main street, carrying signs and showing the world that, no matter what, marriage is between one man and one woman, and always will be. Boys had been asked to wear blue, and girls pink, so obviously I was wearing pink. :)

Before we left to Fr. Brad said a few things and reminded us that we are on a peaceful walk and that if anyone shouted at us or had a sign the opposite of ours, to return their abuse with a smile. :) We also had sung the words 'We are walking for True Marriage' to the tune of 'We have decided to follow Jesus.' A lot of us got given signs, I wanted one. :) And I got one. Mine said 'Children's Rights Come First'. And I carried it proudly.
Now, we started off at Bolton Park, walked up the street to past a man who was holding up a sign the opposite of ours. I can't really remember what it said but yeah, we kept on walking and kept on singing. We turned right and then started down main street, crossing the road and singing all the time. I'll tell you, by the time we got to the Victory Gardens, which were down the other end of Main Street, and our destination, my throat was extremely parched from continuous singing. We continued down main street, we passed both of the big malls. People looked at us. Some took photos and some were filming us. There was one woman who shouted something at us, but we ignored her. A lot of people noticed us especially at the malls, which were both on the same side, and only about a block from each other. The feeling of people watching us made me feel great. People were noticing! Perhaps they were reconsidering what they thought was marriage, perhaps they were getting a wake-up call. After all, that was partly why we were marching. There was another group of people who were dressed all in black and had another sign, they actually followed us all the way to the park and sat through one of the speeches.

We got to the park, had a barbecue lunch and sat to listen to some people who were going to do some talking on marriage. Did I mention that we were sitting out in the hot sun? Fun, fun.
Anyway, the speeches were very good, one of them was done by the Bishop. And I suppose I shall end this post, as I am getting rather tired of it, and say.

Marriage is between One Man and One Woman. Always and forever.

God Bless

Za past week or so..

Soooo, my week thus far or my week from Thursday, hmm, okay so let's recap from Thursday.
Mum and Dad left at about four o'clock to travel down to Melbourne (five hrs away) to go to Kynan's Graduation (CONGRATULATIONS KYNAN!) which left Eden, Rogan and I to look after the little kids until Braedon and Anna-Lisa arrived(they were staying while Dad and Mum were away) and brought Saxon home as well. That night was an early one. I took Trahaearn to bed, went down stairs and then went up and read my gorgeous Return of Sherlock Holmes. Friday was busy, looking after little kids, and then sitting down in the afternoon and watching an episode of William with Anna-Lisa and then watched Matilda which Anna-Lisa hardly remembered seeing. Her facial reactions were rather funny, especially with parts like the Trunchball throwing kids out of windows and Matilda's Mother and Father. :) Good times. We finished off The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, 'we' being Anna-Lisa, Eden, Rogan and I. I just love that movie! :D Not long till the next part! Though we won't get it as soon as a lot of other people around the globe. :(
Saturday was an awesome day! And I mean awesome! We went to a march/rally for True Marriage, I am still working on a post, but I carried a sign and we all marched down Main Street, there were tons of people filming us and taking photos and it just filled me with such a great feeling that we were doing something more than saying how Homosexuality is wrong. There were about 200 people or more, so quite a nice group. :D
Once we got home me and Rogan untangled Christmas lights in preparation of the following day and we went to mass. After that I fell asleep in Trahearn's bed, but woke up at 3:00 am in the morning, when a very tired, Dad, Mum and Autumn rocked up. Yeah, forgot to mention that Mum and Dad after going down to Melbourne had to drive all the way up to Sydney to get Autumn. So a LOT of driving!
Yesterday was starting to stir up the puddings, putting up the Christmas tree, and getting excited. :) It was a very busy day nevertheless, Oh! and we made Wassal and had biscuits and Wassal while lighting the first Advent candle. Happy Advent Everyone!
And today, had been a very busy day as well. Full of tidying up for decorating the house (Done thank Goodness!) and doing our Advent studies.
On my to-do list is: Finish Christmas presents, Make Christmas Cards, Have very constructive and productive days revolving around Advent stuff and reading plenty of Advent books. While I'm here I might show you a few of my personal favourites.  :)

This is actually a picture only book. What happens when an old Gypsey Woman saves the money for the poor from a robber and re-sets up the creche is truly wonderful. I love this book so very, very much!

King of the stable is another of my favourites. It is beautifully illustrated and the story is also beautifully told. :)

Love, love, love this one! A classic! :D I am also going to enjoy reading

Jotham's Journey-and actually finishing it! (though I prefer Bartholomew Passage) and Destination Bethlehem.

I saw this on Facebook. I've seen it many times but I just wanted to post it anyway.
And by the way, can I just say how jealous I am of all you Northern Hemisphere people? Having Christmas in Winter? Wouldn't that be lovely!
So, that's what I've been doing, what about you?

God Bless

What I hope to see in Season 3 of Sherlock.

Now, what you all may or may not know is that BBC's Sherlock is my absolute favourite T.V. series of all time! After that comes Hogan's Heroes and Little House on the Prairie.
Sherlock introduced me to the character and stories. True, I had watched The Great Mouse Detective years ago and I still do now and then but I never really registered that Basil was SUPPOSE to be Sherlock Holmes! I sort of got the reference but I knew next to nothing about Sherlock Holmes.
Early this year we got the first season of Sherlock out from the library and suffice to say that we were hooked!
I started reading the Sherlock Holmes books starting with 'A Study in Scarlet' then 'The Sign of the Four', 'The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes' 'The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes' and I have almost finished 'The Return of Sherlock Holmes'.
So if it wasn't obvious, I'd say that I am very dedicated to Sherlock Holmes and may take the title of Sherlockian. A rather nice one, too.
The other day I asked Jamie who blogs over at Throughtwoblueyes if she was going to be doing any new Sherlock Holmes posts and I suggested that she might do what she wants to see in Sherlock Season 3. Arda had asked me this a few weeks ago and that thought sprung to mind at that time. I also said that I'd probably do was as well, and so here I am.
Summary for Season 3:
Our multi-award-winning drama Sherlock‬ starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman, returns for an eagerly awaited third series of three, 90-minute films this Christmas.
In episode one of this new series, two years after the devastating effects of The Reichenbach Fall, Dr John Watson has got on with his life. New horizons, romance and a comforting domestic future beckon. But, with London under threat of a huge terrorist attack, Sherlock Holmes is about to rise from the grave with all the theatricality that comes so naturally to him. It’s what his best friend wanted more than anything, but for John Watson it might well be a case of ‘be careful what you wish for’!

So the first question that all Sherlock fans want to know is 'How on earth did Sherlock survive?!' I mean how do you survive a drop from a hospital building and later on you are just watching your best friend pouring out his heart at your grave and then it ends! And apparently Season 3 is going to have an even worse cliff-hanger. Note to self: Read His Last Bow before Season 3.
So, besides the obvious that we all want to see how he did it. What other things do I want to see?
Do you think John is ignoring Sherlock here?
1. What is  John's reaction to Sherlock 'coming back'? Apparently John of the T.V. show is not as forgiving as Watson of the stories. Could prove to be very interesting to see.
2. Okay. Now, something I really want to see is Donavan's and Anderson's reactions to Sherlock coming back. And Lestrade will probably be rubbing it in and saying like' Oh, yeah, I told you so!' It would be awesome if Sherlock just sort of walked into Scotland Yard and Lestrade knew already that he was not a kidnapper or anything like that and Donavan and Anderson are trying to arrest him and Lestrade walks in and says something along the lines of 'he didn't do any of that.'
Is it just me or does Mary look a little loopy?
3. John Watson getting married to Mary Morstan. Now, this should prove to be very interesting! John getting married, and with a moustache, too! I am going to assume that they get married in episode two, The Sign of Three. I don't know how they are going to meet maybe because Mary came to get Sherlock's help like she does in the book, or maybe Mary and John meet each other before Sherlock comes back and suddenly she needs both of their help? I have no idea but I hope that Sherlock is the best man.
4. Seeing some more of Molly. Molly is by far one of my favourite characters. And it looks quite obvious that she helped Sherlock fake his death. Sherlock and Molly are supposed to be doing some more stuff together (non-romantic however much all of us who ship Sherlock and Molly want otherwise) and also it has been said that she will tell Sherlock off. Goody! That will not be something to miss at all.
5. Picking up on all the references from the novels. After having read the first two novels/stories and the Adventures and Memoirs I picked up on a few of them, and also my Sherlock Files actually tells you where all the references are from.
6. Basically enjoying another season of Sherlock and being part of the waiting, from the start for the fourth season instead of discovering it about ten months before it is released, which is what happened to me last time.

Oh, and just wondering, but has anyone seen Sherlock's new scarf?
l-to-r. S 1. S2. S3. Arda suggested that it might be a very bright blue because he is getting a bit happier. That sound like a nice idea! :)

And the new trailer which I have not seen yet. Hopefully will today though. :)
So, there you have it! That is what I want to see in Sherlock Season 3 and I can't wait.
Now, all to do is find somewhere on the internet to watch it from, as we don't have T.V. connection and find out the release for Season 3 in Australia.

God Bless

My Birthday...

So my birthday was an amazing, wonderful day, which was everything that I had hoped it to be.
It started out a wee bit earlier than I had intended it to be. I went to be at 9 and put my light out at ten. Then I slept until 3:30 am when a gorgeous little brother of mine asked me if he could hop in my bed. I told him no and instead he hopped into Eden's. But he had woken me up and after going to the toilet and getting a drink, I still couldn't get back to sleep. Hence I spent the next hour trying to get to sleep, then decided I couldn't be bothered as I had planned to Skype one of my friends from the U.S. at 5:00 am. So I got up. I Skyped my friend which was really fun! She had seen Thor 2 on her birthday which is just a few days before mine. We talked about a lot of stuff. After that I watched Sir Gadabout with the little kids, went outside and then watched a bit more of Sir Gadabout. After that it was present opening time! I got all the books I wanted plus, the Sherlock DVD's. :) Saxon gave me a card with an announcement that he would be taking me to see Thor: The Dark World. Eden gave me a blow up mattress for going on the pool and twenty dollars (she loved giving presents and is very generous) and Autumn gave me earrings, which I was very happy about. :)
I had my breakfast and then we left for the cinemas. I wore my birthday crown all the time we were in town. :) After the movie finished we came home and I spent a while up in my room having a look at my books. Reading mostly 'The Sherlock Files' which is basically a visual guide to the series. :)
Braedon and Anna-Lisa came and brought Eden home from work as well. They also brought me two presents. Or two different lots of presents. One being a headband as Braedon had been fiddling with one of mine and had accidentally broken it, so they gave me another headband and two cute little guinea pigs. :) A boy and a girl. Anyone like some guinea pigs? Because I am going to have a LOT to give away! They're Abyssinian Guinea Pigs I think and their names are Olga da Polga and Percy. :)
Dinner was very nice. Beef Stroganoff with potatoes and my favourite vegetables. It was interesting not having to do any of the jobs and just being able to sit there and watch everyone while I read.
Then we had dinner and cleared away for my cake. Can you guess what it was? A violin for Sherlock Holmes. Can I just say that my Mum is so talented when it comes to making cakes? After that we had it, I took some of the little kids to bed, and then came down stairs to watch 'The Reichbach Falls' with Mum, Eden and Saxon. Then I went to bed. By the time I put out my light I had been awake for twenty hours, and I was pretty tired. And I was fifteen.
Some pictures:

My painted saint for this year: Saint Anthony.

Olga da Polga and Percy. This was their home until Dad and Rogan made them a hutch. 
Dad and Rogan late on Sunday night/Monday morning. Great bonding time for both of them. :)

My completed Guine Pig hutch the next morning. Thank you Daddy and Rogan for making it! You did a stellar job!

My awesome cake. :)

Yummy dinner! Lots of beef! I do love my beef. :)


Another picture of my cake

More 'sticking heads' in. :)

'Happy Birthday to me!'

 A close up of my books and air matress for the pool down the bottom. 

Earrings up the top. Then Sherlock season 1&2,  Sherlock Holmes complete box set which are really nice books, harcover and the edges are gold. I don't know the term for that. They are pretty small books but I lvoe them all the same.
Under that Princess of the Silver Woods, the third and final instalment in the Twelve Dancing Princesses series by Jessica Day George . Under that, the Sherlock Files by Guy Adams, very good stuff. It also had, besides stick notes of Sherlock and John's opinions, says wher such lines as 'You see but do not observe' are from, as in which stories.
Under that Waking Rose, an awesome book
Tuesdays at the Castle another Jessica Day George
The Thief Lord which I have wanted for quite some time. It or Inkdeath are the best Corneila Funkle novels in my opinion. 
Thank you Mummy and Daddy for getting my presents, and Eden, Saxon, Autumn, Braedon and Anna-Lisa thank you all so much for my gifts as well.
So I had a very good day, and am now read for all the toils and triuphs that fifteen will hold. Bring it on!

God Bless
