My many identities..........

Now, if you know me in real life you might be surprised at some of the nicknames I have, some have been around for ages, others are used only occasionally and some aren't really used at all anymore. So here is my list:
Porthos-Probably the fattest and most jovial out of the three Musketeers. So we have this young readers version of The Three Musketeers which has a cool cover of the three musketeers and we always said that I was Porthos. This originated from my older siblings telling the story of watching a version of the Three Musketeers at our Grandparents house (I don't remember me watching it) and Porthos was the one who was eating drum sticks or something and he was really funny. That's how it started anyway, but now if we even start talking about The Three Musketeers I'm Porthos. I've seen three different versions of Porthos being: The Three Musketeers (1993) which I got for Christmas because I really like it a lot. The Three Musketeers (2011) and The Musketeers ( T. V. series 2014-) My personal favourite, and who I think really is the best version of Porthos is the 1993 version. I would also add that probably from book to movie it is not the most faithful, but it sure makes for a great story.

I probably don't get called Porthos that much, but I've played Halo online with Rogan and Saxon and Eden (their respective characters being Aramais, Athos and D'artagnan) and my Steam profile is Porthos. :)

Legolas/The Elf- If any nickname is common out of all of mine, this is the one. The name 'The Elf' which eventually included Legolas as well started with my brother Saxon rhyming peoples names with different things. For instance, Eden was Eden of Sweden ect. So my name rhymes with Elven so Saxon began to call me Vellvin Da Elven. In fact my Instagram profile is that! :D Once I became Vellvin Da Elven it quickly became Legolas. I've gotta say I really like this nickname. I find that as a character Legolas is better int the Hobbit as he actually talks a lot. But I like LOTR better than the Hobbit, hence the reason why the picture is LOTR. :)

Flea- Okay, I know what you are thinking...What a weird name, right? Who would want a nickname like Flea? Well, really how it started is a bit of a long story.
A few years back, Mum bought this cartoon DVD series which was Hans Christian Anderson fairy tales. Now, I am honestly not an expert on Fairy Tales but there is one of the stories which we watched called 'The Professor and the Flea'. And it's about this Professor and his performing Flea. They get stranded on this island where there are cannibals and the flea manages to safe them by amusing the spoiled Princess who is in charge. Autumn and I find this very amusing indeed. And we have a habit of being a bit stupid, both of us, as sister are from time to time. :) And Autumn found that whatever I was doing was very funny. The Princess in the story says. "You amuse me, Flea!" And that is exactly what Autumn said. So in other words I'm the Flea and she's the Princess. :) I told you it was a long story. :)

Sergie- This is once again a nickname that Saxon gave me. I don't know how many of you guys ahve seen Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol. I actually haven't even seen all of it. I fell asleep in it. :P But at the start of it the main guy is locked in a prison, and his team breaks him out. But he also helps one of his cell-mates out of the prison as well. This other prisoner calls him 'Sergie' even though his name is not that. So Saxon got into the habit of coming home from work and saying 'Sergie' to me. Of course this one hasn't been used in a very long time. :)
This is Balian and I the other week. 
Belvie- This is my oldest nickname ever. Well, technically what it was suppose to be is 'Velvie' but the littler ones never actually said the 'V' at the start of it, but instead added a B. I think it will be really sad when they are bigger because it means that they will no longer refer to me as Belvie. Which will be really sad. :( When I'm talking to Arwen and Trahaearn I usually call myself Belvie. Trahaearn is the one who says my name like that the most.

So there you have it. Those are some of my nicknames/identities. What do you think?

To let you know....

Hello everyone! How are you all? I am much better than I was on Monday. Guess what! I can walk!! :D :D The CT scan showed that I had no broken bones. *clap clap clap* My bruises and grazes are healing nicely, which is a relief and I've been able to do some of the stuff which I couldn't do while being lounge-bound. :) Thank you so much for all of your prayers. I really, really appreciated every single one of them! :) I'm sorry that I didn't update you all sooner, but I've been really busy and yesterday I spent a majority of time cooking. :) I made pound cake which was great! :) And strawberry cheescake and yeah, it was just really good. Thank you for praying for me! :)

God Bless

The Maze Runner (A Review)

Hello everyone! :)
So anyway, as my foot trouble is going I've heard nothing new, Hopefully I'll hear something later today, anbd I pray, that it is a good result! But today I'm not really talking about that. Today I'm talking about the movie I watched on Saturday.
Now, just so you know, I have no idea how good from book-to-movie this is. I hope to read the books soon. :)

The Maze Runner is a movie which is very interesting. Don't get me wrong. I really enjoyed it. It was a good movie, but if you want a clear-cut plot then you'd better go and find something else to watch. :)
Basically it's about a colony of people who live in a glade in the middle of the maze. They get sent new supplies and one new person each month, and each and everyone one of them only remembers what their name is. They have no idea who they were before the maze. And no idea why they were sent to the maze, either. They've been trying to chart the maze for three years, trying to find a way out of it, but with not very much success at all. They have a few people who go out into the maze each day, charting it, and they are called Maze-Runners, but they always need to get back to the glade before sun set as the maze blocks the entrance to the glade at that time. No one has ever survived a night in the maze. Ever.
 Thomas (the main character) is sent to the maze and is more determined, and curious then most others, thinking and trying new ways to get out of the maze. And he becomes a Maze-Runner. That's all I'm going to tell you about the plot. :) Otherwise it would ruin it all. :)

The characters I want to cover:
Thomas: Thomas was a good main character and seemed different than the other people in the glade. Which obviously meant that the plot went forward nicely. It is hard to formulate how much you like a character if you don't have much back story, but he was still a good lead.

Chuck: Okay, he was just really cute. I feel really sad that he has no idea who his parents were. 'sniff' He is so much younger than everyone else, which makes him stand out more. And I don't want to say very much about him because I'm trying to avoid spoilers.

Newt: Newt was probably one of my favourite characters. He certainly knows how to look out for people and is wise enough to see that Thomas is the one they need to follow.

Gally: Honestly he was soooooo irritating!!! And stupid!!! He was also hard to think of as a different character than Eustace. I mean he just looks like Eustace!

Minho: Okay. I think Minho was my other favourite character. He was a strong, good guy. The leader of the runners he knows more about the maze than anyone else and he follows Thomas's lead. I just really liked him. :)

Umm, who else? Oh! Alby he wasn't that interesting, and Teresa was really not that interesting either. I'm sorry if this review is quite short, but I'm just being quick today. :) And most reviews take me quite a while, but this is easier. :)
In short the Maze-Runner is a interesting, different movie. And the ending? I have no idea what to think now! I hope I can read the books soon. Rogan and I are already talking about going to see the second when it comes out this year! :D

Anna-Lisa and Balian came over on Saturday and she watched Maze-Runner with us. Trahaearn was the only little one home and he wanted to hold his nephew. It was so cute! :D

In which I tell the story of my accident.........

Hello everyone. How are you all? I'm pretty well besides living on the lounge most of the time. :)
You may ask why I am spending most of my time on the lounge. Truthfully, I wish I wasn't. But I suppose I'd better start from the beginning:

I've been lounge-bound since Sunday of last week. This was because I had a panic attack on the way to mass and jumped out of the car. Thankfully the car had only just started up again, and even though my foot went under one of the wheels, I am pretty okay. Even so, that Sunday was really, really, difficult. I felt emotionally shattered. I had grazes on my upper legs, knees, feet, one on my side and two on my lower back. Goody. NOT!!!!
 The pain for the first few days was quite a lot. Today I"m feeling much better. I'm just annoyed that I can't go around doing stuff, like I normally do.
On Monday I went to see the Doctor and he said that everything should be fine, beyond some bruising and a bit of pain. The nurses bandaged me up and we went home.

 On Tuesday I went to see our family Doctor and she said that I would need to get X-rays just to be sure. So that meant having to go to another place, wait around for half and hour or so, and then get x-rays which were extremely uncomfortable because I needed to move this way, or that, and my knees were quite sore still, even though they were bandaged. Anyway, after that Mum and I went home.
By Thursday which was when I was going to see our family doctor again, I was actually walking around the house doing stuff, although I still was getting tired more easily. But guess what!!! The Doctor told Mum that the x-rays hadn't been clear on my left foot, and they weren't sure if I had a broken bone in my foot! I know it wasn't the Doctor's fault but it was still irritating. :( Which meant that I needed to have crutches until I could go for a CT scan. Which is today. I"m hoping that there is no broken bone.

 I've been on the lounge most of the time since Sunday of last week and I've gotta say, that it is losing it's charm. I've done quite a bit of reading, but just sitting and reading all day has gotten rather dull. I know, that sounds so weird! Me, being bored of reading?! Never! It's more the inability to do anything else. So yeah. There was one book that I started on Friday and finished on Saturday, which I was very proud of.

 It was called the Crystal Snowstorm and it is one of a series! :D I really enjoyed it! And then Anna-Lisa  and Balian came over on Saturday night and I got to hold Balian for a bit, even though he was crying, and that was nice. She also brought chocolate, which is always a plus. :) And we watched the Maze Runner which was really good, if somewhat confusing. Hopefully I'll be able to write about it in a few days. :)

So to end this post: Being lounge-bound is irritating but it does have it's perks. My CT scan is this afternoon and I"m really worried that I'll have a broken bone. I'd really appreciate any prayers that it is not so. Because I just don't want to spend anymore time on a lounge then I need to. And I'm also seeing a nurse this afternoon to look at my grazes. I'm not really worried about that as Mum knows what she's doing when it comes to that. She really is a great Doctor.
Jesus I trust in you. 
So yeah, if you guys could pray for me, and for a good outcome, that would be awesome. :) I'm also sorry if this post rambles a bit but I'm sort of just getting the facts out. :)
God Bless
