Life Lately #17

So, this is actually the second time I’ve written this post! I had an absolute panic on Sunday night when I had a massive problem with my blog. I updated some plugins, which totally messed up the site, but when I tried to restore a back up it then appeared that I had somehow lost every single blog post I’d written in my three and a half years of blogging…it was pretty scary! Thankfully, after I’d had a small meltdown (or you know, a massive meltdown that involved waking my mum up for no reason other than to have someone to… Read more »

Is it me, or does Christmas already feel like ages ago? I always find January to be such a weird month, with the excitement (and stress!) of Christmas quickly fading, as everything seems to go from being busy, busy, busy to just…blah. I did have a really nice Christmas though, and I actually got three days off work over the festive period, which was nice. I worked Christmas Eve which was manic, but was then off on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and the following day. I stayed at my boyfriend’s over Christmas, but we did go to my parent’s house… Read more »

I don’t want to start out this post by yelling, BUT HOW THE HELL IS IT LESS THAN THREE WEEKS UNTIL CHRISTMAS ALREADY!? WHERE HAS ALL THE TIME GONE!? Christmas just always feels like one of those things that sneaks up on me: one minute it seems to be ages away, and then suddenly it’s a matter of weeks and you find yourself wondering, ‘what the hell happened to November!’ To be fair, my November has definitely been a busy one thanks to NaNoWriMo and loads of birthdays in my family, including my little niece’s first birthday! My sister threw… Read more »

Time literally seems to be flying by these days. I mean, how is it November already? October seems to have passed in a bit of a blur, but thankfully I’ve actually got some things to report this month! I started the month with a week off work, which was great, and I managed to do a few things: I met up with my friend who’s just moved back from Canada (and I’ve since been on another day trip out with her!) and went to Chester with my sister and my little niece. Unfortunately, we only realized when we got there… Read more »

These days I genuinely seem to be struggling to think of things to write about in these updates, which is probably a sign I need to get out more… I say it every month, that hopefully next month I’ll get out and do more things, and then life happens and I find myself day after day getting home from work exhausted and wanting nothing more than to slump on the sofa. My weird hours at work are definitely starting to catch up to me (I have to get up at 5 am for work a few times a week, and… Read more »

August seemed like one of those months where literally all I did was go to work and come home, which kind of sucks. Especially as the weather has been so beautiful, and it really doesn’t feel like I’ve made the most of it. I haven’t done a single summery thing: not one trip to the beach or barbecue! I haven’t even read outside! And now summer is quickly coming to a close, and soon it’ll be all gloomy and rainy again… Although at least then I might feel better about being stuck at work! As I say every month, time… Read more »

Is it me, or does July seem to have flown by? Maybe it’s because I’ve had a fairly eventful month, or perhaps it’s just the shock of realising we’re now over halfway through 2017! I started July with a few days off work to celebrate mine and my boyfriend’s second anniversary, which was definitely a nice start to the month! We chilled out for some of it, but we also went to the cinema to see Spiderman: Homecoming, went to my nephew’s 5th birthday party and had a really nice trip up to the Lake District. My boyfriend had never… Read more »

So the month of June has been fairly uneventful for me. For the most part the weather here has been nice, although this last week its been very changeable. As in, you can go outside in the sunshine in the morning, and be returning drenched and shivering from the rain in your shorts and vest top in the afternoon. Not cool English weather, not cool! One outing I’ve been on this month was to Bury Market with my parents, which I really enjoyed. I always really like looking around markets, and Bury Market is a pretty famous one in the… Read more »

  I hope everyone has had a good May! I really don’t know why I’m so late with my end of month update, seen as it isn’t like I don’t have anything to write about… But oh well! I think my biggest announcement this month is that I’ve finally finished the novel I’ve been writing! It’s only taken a year, one NaNoWriMo and one Camp NaNoWriMo but I’ve finally done it, and I couldn’t be more thrilled! This is the first full length manuscript I’ve ever finished in the years I’ve been writing, so I think this will really boost my confidence, seen… Read more »

  I hope everyone has had a lovely April! Personally, I’ve had a pretty good month! I said in my March update that I’d had a bit of a slow month, and it felt like I hadn’t really done much, so I thankfully managed to turn that round in April. Pretty early on in the month my sister and I, and my little baby niece took a trip to Manchester to do a spot of shopping. We went on the train to avoid the stess of driving (I had a massive meltdown last time I tried to drive in Manchester… Read more »
