Its been a while...

Hey everyone,

Sorry it has been so long since I lasted posted! I have had a lot going on and haven't really had the time to properly sit down and blog.
Christmas is obviously on its way so I have been very busy Christmas shopping and getting in to the festive spirit. It's a strange time of year, this time a year ago I was in hospital and spent Christmas time feeling very poorly, this year it's really nice to be feeling healthy and enjoying everything.

The blog is now just over 6 months old and it still amazes me how many people read my ramblings and how many people I have been in touch with since it started. I have been in quite the reflective mood and have realised how important this blog has been to me and how crucial it has been throughout this awful time. I have had a pretty horrific 18 months and it has often felt like luck is never on my side - it has truly felt that it has been one thing after another. I am very much looking forward to the new year and 2014 - I think it's my turn for some nice things to happen.

I am also happy to announce that I am going to be the proud owner of my very own long haired mini sausage dog and I could not be happier. As many of you will know I have been wanting one of these gorgeous dogs for a very very long time and finally after months, if not years, of begging my parents have finally agreed that it is okay. Of course I found a breeder and some gorgeous pups within 24 hours! This means that all being well I will be picking up my new dog on Saturday! I have been planning for this for so long that although it has happened super quick we all ready for the new arrival. Its going to be a boy and I am still unsure on names so if you guys can vote for one of my shortlist options on my homepage that would be amazing! Might help me make a decision...


During the past few weeks I have applied for my teach training - a process which should be simple but took hours! Due to the nature of my degree I doubt I am going to get in this time round, so my plan is to work as a teaching assistant from September to gain as much experience as possible in a classroom setting. This should hopefully also give me a bit of a break from studying!
I have finished Uni for the term and have had a few weeks to spare so have been spending them helping in a years reception, 1 and 2 at a local primary school. This has honestly been the best thing I have done in a long time. The children are gorgeous and make me laugh constantly, helping with the nativity has also been lovely and heart warming.

As I said the past few weeks have been very busy, I have been meeting up with friends a lot and spend most evenings going to various pubs and restaurants. I have also been indulging in lots of lovely pamper spar treatments, I have gotten my hair cut and nails done, which is lovely and well needed.

Hope you are all healthy and happy.
Lots of love,
