Happy May everyone! I can’t believe we’re nearly halfway through the year already! Crazy! This month, in particular, seems to have flown by, as I’ve have had quite a bit of time off work (which always makes time go faster!). As well as the Easter bank holidays I also had a week’s annual leave from work in honour of my birthday! Unfortunately, I couldn’t get my actual birthday week off, so ended up spending my birthday at work (fun times!), but I did plenty of nice things in lieu of it the following week whilst I was off. I had… Read more »

We’re already partway through April, and as per usual, I’m wondering where the time has gone. I feel like March flew by, and I didn’t really do a whole lot other than work! I did meet up with my friend a couple of weeks back though, and it was so nice to see her, as I hadn’t seen her since before Christmas. We’ve always been really close – we used to live together! – but since we live quite far apart now we don’t see each other all that often, so it was nice to have a catch up (and… Read more »

As if we’re into March already! Seriously, what is going on with time? I actually had a fairly good February, kicking off with a nice week off work. I thankfully got loads of chilling and reading time in, but also had a nice little overnight stay in York with my boyfriend, which was lovely! We just had a wander around the town, doing some sightseeing and shopping. In the old part of the city (called the Shambles), there was actually two Harry Potter themed shops which were a favourite of ours, and we definitely intend to go back there when… Read more »

Happy January everyone! That’s presuming everyone is happy about it being January…I always find it a bit of a weird time of year personally, with Christmas all over and done with, and the cold weather really setting in. As I’ve said in a couple of posts, this past month has been pretty action packed for me. I started my new job midway through December, and moved into my boyfriend’s. Moving in with my boyfriend has of course been amazing – we’ve been waiting to be able to do this for a couple of years now (my previous job was too… Read more »

How is it November already? I mean, next month it’s going to be Christmas, and then it’s going to be 2019…seriously, where does all the time go?! October seemed to fly by, not that I actually did very much. I even had a week off work, but I mostly spent that relaxing with my boyfriend. We did go to the Trafford Centre one day, and I went shopping with my sister which was nice, but otherwise the week was a quiet one. I think I needed that though…I’ve been so tired lately, what with all my early starts for work… Read more »

This month has been a month of catching up with people! Seen as my boyfriend has been working the past few Saturdays, I’ve spent them seeing friends I haven’t seen in a while, and hanging out with my sister. One of my catch-ups was at the start of the month, where I met up with a friend at a really nice little cafe. I got some amazing macaroni cheese there, with some of the best garlic bread I’ve ever had (it was basically just crusty bread buttered with garlic butter!), which is pretty crazy giving how much garlic bread I eat!… Read more »

August is over, and September is here, and on the whole its been a fairly boring month for me. After the excitement of having time off work back in July, August has pretty much just been work, work and more work unfortunately. It’s genuinely been one of those months where I’m having to rack my brains for anything to report, but thankfully I have one interesting anecdote: My mum, my sister and I took my two nieces and my nephew to Blackpool Zoo on Tuesday, and we had a lovely day! Thankfully all the animals seemed to be out, and we… Read more »

Is it just me who’s baffled by the fact it’s now June? Where has the year gone? How we are we almost halfway through already? May in particular has been quite a busy month for me, which you can probably tell from the scarcity of posts on this blog recently. Hopefully I’ll do better in June, but it could potentially be a busy month too! I was really happy to get to catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in a while this month. I met up with one of them for coffee and cake the other day, and… Read more »

So March is over, and April is here, and with it the beginnings of some decent weather! It has been raining off and on here in my corner of England, but there has also been some warmer days mixed in there, which has been nice. Although I live in a very touristy seaside town, and because the kids have been off school for Easter, every time the sun so much as peeped out of the clouds, the town suddenly became heaving, which was annoying. Anyway, March and the early part of April have been pretty uneventful for me. When I’ve… 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 »
