I don’t want to believe my eyes when I see that I haven’t blogged since June 4th. Yet here I am over 2 months later, PJs on, tea in hand, listening to some good music with some candles burning… I think this is my happy place.
Can I just start by saying, is anyone else freaking out that we’re over half way through August?! Madness right? But that does mean there are some pretty exciting (and important) stuff coming up. 1. IT’S MY BIRTHDAY SOON! (August 28th, and we’re all off as it’s a Bank Hols too, yippee!) 2. I have almost been with my other half, Tim for 5 years and we have booked a lovely night away in Somerset for our anniversary at the end of September. 3. My best friend graduates from Uni in November, woohoo go Mary! Proud of you chick. 4. Some big stuff is happening at work, watch this space. 5. (I’m pleased I got to 5, I thought when I started that I would only be able to think of like 2!) Yes so 5. I am on my 4th and final assignment of my course, ‘The Certificate in Wedding & Event Planning’ then I will be able to call myself a Certified Wedding Planner! (Does a little dance of happiness…) 6. There’s a 6. My youngest baby brother Oakley starts school in September and Jacob the other one just turned 6 – No idea how he got so big?? But I am THE proudest big sis to all three because the oldest of the three, Josh starts his apprenticeship with Nature’s Way Foods in September. They’re all doing so well.
Quick recap of my holiday in June. I had a great time, 12 days of great food, wine, cocktails, the best company and great ports of call. And the best part was I felt genuinely great. In my last post I was so nervous about walking around on the deck in just my bikini, but I kept thinking of the stunning figures of Iskra Lawrence & Ashley Graham and that instantly made me feel more comfortable. I wore some stunning dresses, got to dress up EVERY night and has such a great time, all the time not letting a little holiday weight get me down – Because with an all-inclusive 1 night Royal Caribbean cruise you cant NOT put on a little bit!!
The time away gave me space and time to reflect on the months of the year that had already passed and re-focus myself on what is important to me for the rest of year; my achievements, goals and dreams. I am now super-focused and ready to battle the last 3 and a half months of 2017 – wait did I just say that?! OMG this is scaring me… – and end the year as I intended to, to kick ass!!
It’s lovely to be back, hope you’ve all been well. Thanks for reading.
