Firsts and Lasts – A fun, lighthearted post

October 14, 2017

So, as many of you know life has been a little tense for us the last few months, so I wanted to do a light hearted post. Firsts and lasts. Silliness, but lifted my mood writing it. Let me know any of your first and lasts x


My first pet when I was about 3, was a cat called Lucky. I loved her but my mum let her go to another home as I tried to stick the cat to sticky paper to draw round her. I obviously didnt mean to hurt her, (Iv always loved animals) but my Mum thought maybe I was too young to understand how an animal needs to be cared for……….

My last pet – I currently have a little cat called Purdy and and a Minature Schnauzer called Lulu. I love them.

My first job when I was 14 was on a Market stall in Basildon, Essex. I loved it. I worked with two other girls (that Im still friends with) and we had such a good time, despite it being hard work and blooming cold in the winter!

My last job was/is as a Skin Therapist and Facialist.

My first home was the house I was born in, and I lived there until I was 5.

My last house is currently the house we bought to do up and sell on, (our second one we have bought as a project) we said we would live in for 5 years. We have been here 14……..

My first “designer” item I bought myself was a little black Mulberry Clutch bag. I think it was called a Daria pouch.

My last designer item I purchased was my Kate Spade bag, (which I love)


My first thing I started collecting as a child was Pippa dolls and My Little Pony horses. I was obsessed with them.

My last thing I collected was bags and shoes I suppose. Oh and make up of course!

My first car was an original 1973 white convertible beetle, it was my pride and joy.

My last/current car is a black BMW convertible.

My first place I visited abroad was Majorca when I was 11

My last trip abroad was to Turkey.

Side harbour in Turkey

My first bone I broke was my arm, falling down the stairs when I was 4

My last bone I broke was my back, (not as dramatic as it sounds) falling from my horse when I was 18.

My first boyfriend was a boy called Ritchie when I was 8. He made me a daisy chain.

My last boyfriend was of course my husband.

My first alcoholic drink I got drunk on was Tia Maria when I was 13.

My last alcoholic drink I got drunk on was Cocktails in London earlier this year. (I dont get drunk often anymore)

My first music album I ever bought was The Nolan Sisters when I was 7. The track “Im in the mood for dancing” was the soundtrack to mine and my friends life for about a week. Thats forever when your 7!

My last music album I bought was James Arthur, Back From The Edge.

My first bedroom colour that I chose was when I was 6, was pink and grey with a Polly Pocket duvet cover

My last and current bedroom colour is all white, with a little grey.

The first book that made me fall in love with reading was The Famous Five

The last book I really loved was Leaving Time by Jodi Picoult

The first restaurant I ever ate in without my parents was a Beefeater called The Watermill. I felt so grown up!

The last restaurant I ate in was Prezzo last weekend when our eldest son took us out for dinner, (bless him)

My first beauty treatment I ever had was a half leg wax when I was 15. It was agony and hurt so much, I had to stop the lady literally after the first few strips. It was torture!

My last beauty treatment I had was a manicure by the lovely girls at the Next bloggers event a couple of weeks ago.


Thats it. My little fun, lighthearted post. I would love to hear some of your first and lasts????
