It’s been awhile since I wrote a blog post. I gave myself a little break because there been so much going on in my personal life, so I thought it would be a good idea to get back into the swing of blogging with a personal update –
Planning a Wedding – probably one of the main reasons for not blogging so much lately. Any spare time I get in the evenings, I’m trying to put my concentration to wedding planning. I have been really laid back about the whole wedding planning thing – much to my family and friend’s frustration! If I have a pound for every time someone said “haven’t you sorted that yet?” or “you should really get on a sort that out”, I would be able to pay for the entire wedding, no problem! We get married in April, and admittedly we are a bit behind and getting everything sorted, but it’s because we have had so much going on with our changing jobs. I’m going go into more detail about my wedding planning thoughts and updates on a future blog post, but what I can say is that I honestly didn’t realise how much detail goes into planning a wedding!
New Job – As some readers may know I have been working in London for the past year, and although I loved my job the commute was a little too stressful for my liking. I then found a great opportunity a little closer to home, right in the middle of Brighton and I changed my job about 6 weeks ago. I now currently work in a fantastic digital agency called Net Natives, working as their new Direct Media Buyer and Planner. As all new jobs go, it does take awhile to get settled into a new routine which is also been why I’ve been a little preoccupied. Everything is going well though and working closer to home means I get more spare time in the evening to enjoy life again – no more 4hrs a day spent on a train for me!
Got some new wheels – My amazing fiancé, surprised me by getting me my own little Smart car. Ash, my fiancé works for Mercedes and he began his role selling Smart cars which meant he got to drive around a variety of Smart cars for his company car. I fell in love with them and kept saying, as soon as I start working closer to home I would treat myself by getting a little Smart car so it would be easier to get around. Knowing full well I wouldn’t bite the bullet and get one (I struggle to treat myself to anything that costs a lot of money because I always think it can go to something more practical) he ordered me one and I’m so glad he did. I love my little car now and it means I can go out and do so much more for myself. I love her so much, I’ve called her Suzie 🙂
Slimming World – as you know if you’ve read any of my Slimming World Sunday posts, I’ve been doing Slimming World now for just over 4 months. I’ve currently lost 1 stone but it’s been a very, very slow process with a lot of ups and downs. With the new job and a better routine with more time in the evenings, I’m finding slimming world a little more easier to stick to. Fingers crossed, I can get a bit closer to my target over the next couple of months. I’ll keep you updated!
Concentrating on me! – Overall there has been a lot going on in my life at the moment, and rather than feeling overwhelmed to try and doing everything half heartedly, I’ve decided I need to put myself first. Take some time to truly think about what I want to do and achieve. For example with blogging, I didn’t want to write anything for the sake of it just to get a post live – at the end of the day ,why would anyone want to read something I didn’t feel passionate about! Which is why I took the conscious decision to take things one step at a time and make sure I’m doing things that make me feel happy!
Hopefully that gives you a little update about me, but what have you guys been up too? Hope you have all been well and I’ll see you very soon with another blog post soon!
