When I first started this blog I was so determined that I’d update it regularly. I actually have quite a few drafts that never saw the light of day; a result of poor motivation. I have a lot of spare time now due to my hours at work changing, so I am going to aim to update it every 2 or 3 weeks, or even more frequently if I feel inspired to do so.
I read that the last post I wrote was a little under a year ago, just after my 23rd Birthday. As we all know, a lot can happen in a year. I don’t want to write in too much detail what I’ve been doing over the past year, as the sole purpose of this blog was to use it in the form of journal, a diary if you like, to reflect on my life and to look back on memories.
So life’s pretty good at the moment. I’m 24 on Saturday, which is crazy. I guess I’m a full on adult now. I think 24 is a good age, it’s where you are still young, but old enough to have gained some maturity and experience in life.
I have a very exciting Birthday weekend coming up. I’m going for a couple of drinks tomorrow night with friends, then I’m going for a meal with my family on my actual Birthday. Then my partner is taking me to a lovely spa hotel on Sunday, and then has booked 4 days in Barcelona after. I can’t believe someone would actually put that much effort into a birthday for me 🙂 I can’t wait to go to Barcelona. I went for a day with my parents when I was about 9 years old, we were staying in a town called Calella not too far away when we visited. I only remember visiting Camp Nou and watching the amazing fountains. They are the two memories that stick out to me from that holiday, so it will be interesting if any more pop to my head!
Since I last posted we went to the beautiful Malta, and a trip round California/Nevada which was just amazing. Las Vegas is officially the best place on earth! Honestly, travelling is the way to live your life. I’m so glad I have found a man who wants to see the world as much as I do.
In October my Mum gave birth to my little brother, the apple of my eye ❤ Alfie is such a cute little guy, and I can’t wait to watch him grow up! 23 and a half years between us though. How crazy is that? Kinda funny as my relationship has a rather large age gap as well. Lol!
Work-wise things are doing good. I finished my NVQ, finally! I am starting my level 3 soon, and then who knows? I am quite happy as I am at the moment though. My jobs quite straight forward most of the time, and it is great fun. I will probably carry on working with children as I do find it rewarding. I just need to get as much experience and qualifications I can so I can make something of myself in a few years. Right now I’m just focusing on finishing my level 3 before making any decisions.
Ummm, not much else to say really… I started playing guitar at Christmas and I’m progressing well. I can play a few songs here and there. The reason I wanted to play guitar is because I love Arcade Fire’s songs so much that I wanted to play them myself. I have just learnt ‘Windowsill’ by them, which is one of my all time favourite songs. I must admit, I am feeling rather chuffed with myself for learning it!
I’m going to leave it at that now anyway. Until next time.. 😀
