Olympics, Bengal and other rants


The Olympics is over and I can honestly say that I had no faith that London could pull it off. I'm being serious, I thought it would be an epic fail and the weather would be wet and the transport would be a mess. All the posters about 'Can you work from home?' really annoyed me. Come on, if I could work from home wouldn't I be working from home? BUT Team GB did us proud. Still can't believe this was hosted in Stratford!! At least it doesn't look as mash up. I really liked that Jessica Ennis's face was on the grass so it was the first thing people saw when they landed 'Welcome to our turf #HomeAdvantage.' I liked the subliminal threat.
The opening ceremony was the best History lesson EVER. Saw a few of my friends dancing which was great to see and it made everyone appreciate how multi-cultural London is. Screw you BNP! Then when the flags came out, I had to stop and pause. Excuse me Puerto Rico had some hotties! I was definitely flying that flag. Finally got to see the legend that is Bolt and Nigeria skanking out with their shades on. But honestly this is the first Olympic Games, I really got into. The gymnastics was draw dropping - Gabby Douglas just killed everyone and the Jamaican relay...I have no words. I have learnt alot about myself since these Olympics.
I am officially a part of Team Bolt. That is an athlete with charisma. There was more times than once I thought about going to Stratford and trying to hunt out where he would be. But I do have my dignity so that's info I'll only share with you guys but there's something very attractive about the fastest man in the world who doesn't take himself too seriously. Kind of makes you look at other less talented people and think really? Was extremely funny when Bolt and Blake did their poses and the other Jamaicans just stood there - and they're the ones that looked silly.
I have a crush on Tom Daley. Have you seen him in those pants? Woiiiii, swimming never seemed so interesting and that stomach has set the bar for any potential boyfriend. Sorry guys.  Even Mo's pretty hot, although a guy with skinnier legs than mine ain't a good look.
This whole experience made me feel even more privileged to have done the BBC 1XTRA radio interview as part of the talent in the Olympic borough. I wish my Mum had pushed me to take athletics more seriously. I was a very fast sprinter but oh no she starts talking again about tennis - it's funny how she still thinks getting me one racket and not getting me a coach is still OK.
The closing ceremony was a bit crap - I just kept thinking is this the best British music. Really??? Couldn't help thinking if this was in New York it would be a Hip-Hop extravaganza. I'm sure some of the athletes who were stuck close to the stage agreed with me.
When I saw the black cabs I knew it was the Spice Girls but I couldn't help feeling a bit uncomfortable for them. Forty odd singing 'Spice up your life.' I could see why Posh looked so Posh about it all but the effect they had on people is unquestionable. I even saw Boris doing a shimmy, which hurt my eyes. But overall well done London Town, we did a fab job and now to prepare for Paralympics (got a ticket to power lifting, oh yeah!) Oh and start saving for Rio! THAT'S going to be craaaaazzzzzyyyy!!

This summer has been so chilled. Celebrated my 24th with a dinner and bar, extremely low key for me but I mashed up my knee so couldn't go Thorpe Park - which was poo but I watched Ted. If you haven't seen it, see it, it's as stupid as it looks but I didn't stop laughing.

My book give away is going very well. It's been RT to about 70,000 people! If all them people brought my book, life would be amazing. But hey if you know the answer to this question What is Emily Knight? a) A Vampire b) A Witch c) A Warrior email info@a-bello.com before September 4th to win a free signed copy. I'm just that nice. But big thanks to all the sexy beasts that re tweeted. When you see this image - buy the book!!!





Boys hit a new low for me this week. I was walking to my house wearing a summer dress that was not that short and this guy jingled his keys in my face!!!!!! The Hulk in me wanted to stomp on him but he looked like the type that would like it.

What is it with girls and wearing hot pants with half your arse out? It baffles me that they find that attractive and then they have they cheek to get an attitude when a guy moves to them. Dressed like that I'm shocked they're not throwing money at them.

Fergie had another epic fight. He was bleeding on one side of his body and every time I kept trying to clean him up he growled and hissed at me. I think he forgot that he was the one that was fighting. In the morning, he was lying under a chair and a few hours later he was gone but no one had let him outside. My mum kept asking, "Is he dead?" Do you see what helpful behaviour I am surrounded by? Anyway, she must of moved a bag and he was just staring at her which made her jump and me laugh. Cost £70 for the vet. Great

'You want a bubble butt and you don't want to work hard?'

I know my weekly posts aren't exactly going to plan but I think you guys should allow me. I am doing better than once a month right?

The Author School Day was incredible! It's such a weird process because Helen and I are always stressed out and then the day runs smoothly. The speakers were fantastic! The authors were chatty and asked loads of questions. I finally got to meet Katherine Webber author of Wing Jones. She gave me such a great quote for my Emily book and is so sweet in person. We saw each other and was like 'Selfie!'  Honestly, I just love The Author School and now we are planning our London Book Fair one and tickets are already on sale. Now we are doing a different ticketing scheme from tickets selling from £50 all the way to £70, so if you book quick you can get some really cheap tickets but if you leave it to the last minute, you will grab an expensive one. So chuffed that Lit agent Clare Wallace will be back to do a full class and do one-to-ones!! Book

We really wanted to laugh but didn't want to bring too much Hackney and Peckham vibes

Merry Christmas!!!!!!!

I seriously can't believe we are here already. I remember last Christmas like it happened a few months ago. I have already changed my food mentality. Had pizza for breakfast and cake for lunch and I worked out all week for the privilege.

So this is my second to last post of the year. I know guys, sad times but I think my 2018 posts are going to be even better than this year. God willing great and hilarious things continue to happen that I can share with you all.

I had my mini's do a dance performance to O Holy Night for Christmas and I had one of the best ideas I've had all year! I wanted Shiloh, who is about 10 months, to be dressed as an angel and to be sitting in the middle, while the little ones dance around her. See her mum got my vision but some people (Anneliese) didn't and guess what? It worked perfectly! My mini's were super cute and then you had Shi sitting on this little white seat swinging her fat little legs with wings on. Result…

2017 - WE MADE IT!!

Well we made it to another year! Thank God! The amount of natural disasters, terror attacks, we really need to be thankful that we made it.
This has been an awesome year. I truly feel like 2017 set the foundations for my life. Existing things were brought up to another level and for 2018, it's just going to flourish. I have the best feeling about next year. I can't explain it but I know it's going to be one to remember (in a good way)
It's so funny because at the beginning of the year I said I wanted to be single and I have dated more guys this year than I ever have! A lot of frogs (no surprise) but I did meet a special American who has set the bar moving forward. I couldn't even go back to these waste boys even if I tried. So for 2018, ladies don't drop your crown especially for no frog.




Here's my highlights of this year
