Guest Post – Halloween

(I did a guest post not too long ago and it was so lovely, so here’s another one!)

This post is by the amazing and fantastic Hideaway Girl. She’s a really lovely person, and her blog is great!

Hi, everyone! I’m Hideaway Girl and I’m writing on Elm’s blog post today as we are starring on eachothers blogs today ๐Ÿ™‚ As Halloween is tomorrow, we are talking about Halloween if you want to see Elm’s blog post, click here! But before you do that, read this one ๐Ÿ™‚

My family has always celebrated Halloween in some way since I was five. My dad finds Halloween annoying because he hates answering the door (which he doesn’t do anyway) but this year he is going out with his friends. My mum loves Halloween, she decorates the house and loves to give sweets to the trick or treaters. I’m British so Halloween isn’t really big here but we still get a few people knocking on our doors.

When I was five to 10 years old, I use to go to this inside playground in my town where they would hold Halloween parties. I would always go with my mum, my brother and one of friends who had leukaemia. I would pick a victim (always a boy) and chase them around the ball pit. I was quite a flirt. The place where I would go was called Sharkies and they always hold really fun competitions. One of the competitions that I would always want to win was Colour in the Pumpkin, I never won and I would always cry. When I was 7, my friend (the one who had cancer) won and I was so mad! I use to get really jealous over A as I didn’t really know how ill she was. My mum got really angry one year and took me home.

We went to sharkies every year until A died and we stopped. I always feel a bit weird near Halloween. I’m happy but I’m not. Like I have happy memories of A and Halloween but I sometimes feel a bit… disappointed. I sometimes find myself still thinking that A is alive but then I have to remind myself, she isn’t here.

Anyway, I have a really nice picture of my brother, A and me standing and smiling into the camera. A and I are Witches and my brother is a skeleton. It always makes me smile. I don’t think I have it anymore because we gave it to A’s mum.

So I’ve got a list of what costumes I went as:

1. Witch for like 3 years

2. Devil when I was 10.

3. Prom queen when I was 11

4. Vampire when I was 12 and 13

5. This year, I am going as the queen of hearts.

Ellephant (my best friend) and I are going trick and treating this year. She has sorted out all of my costume of me as I’m rubbish at costume ideas and stuff like that. She has also started a blog and I think we are posting Halloween blog posts. I’m so very happy for being able to post on Elm’s blog and thankyou for reading this post. If you would like to see what I also do, click here and I’ll see you soon!

Guest Post – 44 Childhood Things

Hi, everyone!

So, I said that I’d be having some guest posts soon, and the first is from the lovely Just Average Teen Me – if you haven’t checked out her blog, you really should, because her posts are amazing!

* * *


I’m Just Average Teen Me. First of all, if you don’t know me (you probably don’t) I am a teen (bet you guessed that one) blogger (probably guessed that too) from the UK. I blog about quite a lot of random stuff actually… If you want, you could check out my Who I Am and Why I’m Here
post that will give you some insight as to why I started blogging. Or if you really want you could check out my first ever blog post – Hello World – but that had literally zero information. So if you read them, you should know a bit about me.

Okay, now that that part’s over with, I’d like to say thank you very, very much to Elm (I was going to leave a link there but I’m guessing that’s a bit pointless since this is on her blog) for letting me do this guest post ๐Ÿ™‚ . You’re such an amazing person!

So, for this guest post I wanted to write something that a lot of you might be able to relate to… And I thought, well, we’ve all been through childhood! So why not talk about it?! This post will be quite similar to the time that I did 44 Teenage Girl Things, but quite a few people seemed to like that, so it should entertain you all!! ๐Ÿ˜€

*44 Childhood things*

1. Saying SO many words the American way because of kids TV shows with American accents…. And still saying them like that today… *Mayor* from Lazytown anyone?

2. Feeding food that you didn’t want to other siblings or the pet ๐Ÿ˜€

3. Thinking that your parents were literally giants

4. Always wanting to go to a big school, for big girls and boys ๐Ÿ™‚

5. Pressing the ‘Try Me’ button on every single toy in the toy shop and acting like it wasn’t you ๐Ÿ˜€

6. Singing into the fan ๐Ÿ˜€ (Actually, I still do that now in the summer ๐Ÿ˜€ )

7. Drawing the sun in the corner of a page

8. Trying to balance the light switch between on and off

9. Pulling out the film stuff inside a tape… I did that to my Grandma ALL the time… Sorry Grandma ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

10. BRIGHT blue eyeshadow

11. Wearing crop tops like they were* ‘little girl bras’*… ๐Ÿ˜€

12. Closing the fridge door super slowly so you can see the light turn off

13. Blowing inside the hole for games to make the DS work ๐Ÿ˜€

14. Granddad with his brand new fancy TOUCH SCREEN PHONE

15. Running to the TV to make sure you don’t miss your favourite show

16. Jumping from one couch to the other so you don’t land in the lava

17. Putting even littler siblings inside (yes inside) the washing basket with the lid on for hide and seek

18. Or putting them inside your wardrobe (I was such an evil child) ๐Ÿ˜€

25. Teddy schools anyone?

29. Drinking the water from the shower ๐Ÿ˜€

30. Falling asleep on the couch, and waking up in bed ๐Ÿ™‚

31. Being just too cool for school when you used WordArt for EVERYTHING

35. Pins and needles in assemblies

36. The naughty step ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

37. Bedtime stories โค

38. Pretending to make poo with play dough…. ๐Ÿ˜€

39. Trying so, so hard not to fall asleep at night and waking up in the morning to find out that you fell asleep ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

40. Telling everyone that you actually flew out of the window on your pink unicorn during the night but nobody realised because you were back before morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

41. Thinking that your grandparents knew dinosaurs

42. The biggest, cheesiest smiles when there were family photos that probably got close to damaging your face ๐Ÿ˜€

43. Having a teddy bear with the same name as you

44. Wanting to be have the craziest jobs (I wanted to be an astronaut but then decided not to because I might get lost on the moon ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

That’s everything I could think of! And since I reached 44 (the same as last time) I thought why not end it there? What do you think? Can you relate to some of these??

Thank you SO much for reading (I’m sure you’ll all be back to Elm soon) and thanks again to Elm for welcoming me to your blog ๐Ÿ˜€

BYE! ๐Ÿ˜€
