Life Lately #27

My mental state coming into December 2018 looks kind of like this: AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! You may think this is because of all the usual holiday season things like shopping etc., but oh no! I have a ridiculous amount going on over December including moving house, leaving my job of 8 years and starting a new one… So yeah, it’s going to be a crazy month! I’m pretty excited about my new job, because it means I’m finally going to be in commutable distance of my boyfriend’s place, which means we’re finally moving in together! Hooray! This feels like a really exciting… 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 »

July has been a pretty good month for me, mostly because I was off work for almost half of it! I had a full 2 weeks booked off, and it was so nice just to have some proper time to relax, get out and do some things and spend time with my boyfriend, friends and family. And thankfully the weather cooperated for most of it, and stayed nice and sunny! I spent a lot of the holiday at my boyfriend’s, and we ended up going on several really nice day trips. We went to the Liverpool World Musuem one day,… Read more »

It’s been a scorching hot June here in the UK, and it looks like the warm weather is going to continue through July. In fact, I think it’s supposed to be a month-long heatwave! I always start out by enjoying the warm weather, but after a while I find it starts to get a bit much, especially when I’m at work and having to wear a uniform that includes three layers, and involves standing by industrial ovens. I’ve been trying to make the most of it though in the evenings when it’s been slightly cooler. I’ve been sitting out on… 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 April is over, and May is here, and with it has finally come the nice weather. This past weekend in particular has been beautiful, so it was a shame I was mostly stuck in work! On the whole, April has been a nice, productive month for me…but I’ve discussed the reasons why already in previous posts. To recap: I went on holiday with my boyfriend around the middle of the month to the Lake District, and had a really lovely time (and you can read all about it here). I also took part in Camp NaNoWriMo (and was successful!… 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 »

So considering this is my February ‘Life Lately’ post, I’ve left it pretty late. Mostly because time has really been getting away with me and it only just occurred to me that it’s the middle of March already, and I haven’t done this post! Not that I have a huge amount to report over February, other than the English weather getting pretty crazy. By that I mean a mix of weather ranging from snow, to the usual torrential rain and even the odd sunny day mixed in there. I’m hoping the days will start being consistently brighter soon, seen as… Read more »
