January is here, and the festive season is all over and done with. Maybe it’s just me, but does anyone else find it all quite anticlimactic? I mean there’s such a huge build-up to Christmas and New Year, and then you get to January and just feel like…well, that’s over. And before you know it, everything is back to normal, and it feels like nothing ever happened. Don’t get me wrong, I had a really lovely Christmas. As per tradition, my boyfriend and I got up and opened presents, and then headed down to my parents’ house for a delicious… Read more »

November seems to have just passed in a blur! It’s been such a busy month, yet super unproductive at the same time. Most of the month has been taken up with work, as I’ve been doing a fair bit of overtime in the run up to Christmas (I’m a postwoman, so as you can imagine, Christmas gets hectic, what with all those Christmas cards and parcels to deliver!). It’s all good, because I really do need the extra money so I can finally get my Christmas shopping underway (yes, it’s the 8th December and I have bought one thing so… Read more »

November is here, and I am absolutely baffled by how close it is to Christmas already. I always intend to start my Christmas shopping in October, but so far it hasn’t happened, so I’m hoping I can get it all done this month. I really, really don’t want to end up battling my way through busy shops in December, but that’s what always ends up happening! October was quite a busy month though, even without doing any Christmas shopping. It started out with a week off work, which I feel like I really needed. As I spoke about in this… Read more »

This month had just been a regular, boring old month full of work until a few days ago, when it took a pretty sad turn. My dog of 15 years, Mollie, sadly had to be put down, so its obviously been a sad time for my family. She’d been having problems for the last year or so, mostly with dementia, and it was sad that she didn’t really seem to recognise her own name, and she was constantly falling over and getting herself stuck places. She could no longer walk far, had grown really skinny, and had all sorts of… Read more »

Where the hell has summer gone?! I mean, it’s still fairly warm here and everything, I just don’t know how it’s September already. Where has this year gone, let alone the summer?! Not that I really did much over the last month. Seen as I took time off work at the start of summer (back in July, when we moved house) I’ve mostly just been at work. My boyfriend and I did go on a couple of nice day trips this month though, firstly to Chester. We just had a bit of a wander and a look in the shops,… Read more »

So after the excitement of last month (moving house etc.), this month has actually been fairly uneventful. My boyfriend and I have pretty much just been settling into our new home, and trying to find a place for all our things (I got to spend an afternoon just rearranging my books, so that was fun!). Otherwise it feels like all I’ve done this month really is work, but since I’m a postwoman and it’s been quite nice and sunny here in England it hasn’t been the worst thing ever. This is my first summer with an outdoor job, and I’m… Read more »

July is here, and summer is in full swing! I say that, but there have been a few rain showers in the UK recently, but mostly it’s been sunny and unpleasantly humid. I’ve actually had quite an exciting month for a change! I moved house! It all came about so quickly that I didn’t mention it in my last Life Lately because I didn’t even know it was going to happen! I moved in with my boyfriend about six months ago when I finally managed to get a job near to where he lives (I would have had a huge… Read more »

Happy June everyone! It may be the start of summer, but the weather here in England has been a little up and down (that’s England for you though!). Whilst it’s mostly been blazing hot there have been some random, violent rain showers (like the one happening outside my window just now), which considering I’m a postwoman, I haven’t really enjoyed! Hopefully, the weather settles into proper summer weather soon! Although then, of course, I’ll be complaining that it’s too hot. I’ve had quite a quiet month really, although I did go on a couple of nice days out. My boyfriend… Read more »

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 »
