In just a few weeks time I will be heading off on my holidays and I’ll be honest with you, I CANNOT WAIT. Although I’m not allowed to sit in the sun anymore (thanks Cancer!) I can’t wait to be in the warmth, listening to the weird cricket-insect things buzzing away in the trees, and feeling myself completely, well and truly, relax. View Post
What’s this? A new regular (hopefully) style post? Why yes, yes it is. Y’girl decided that as this here blog is meant to be a record of my life, capturing my memories, it made sense to write more regularly about what I’m doing, how I’m feeling and what’s been whizzing around inside my head. Writing monthly updates as I have been is all well and good but I wanted to get back to my roots a little, back to the days when I used to write daily (LOLS, that’s never gonna happen now) and made this website much more personal.
It’s not something I’ve spoken about much on here before but I’m a bit of a petrol head. Always have been, always will be. It’s something that has been with me for as long as I can remember and so many of my childhood memories involve cars in some form or another.
On my birthday last year I set myself a task to visit 12 new places by the same time this year and, with the striking of midnight and saying goodbye to the absolute mess that was 2017, I promised myself that 2018 would be full of happiness and adventure. So far, so good – 2018 has seen a lot of smiles, a lot of laughs and my calendar is full of exciting times ahead, the most recent of which was a weekend in Devon.
It’s a cliche, I know, but how on earth is it May tomorrow?! And, more importantly, why does it still feel like bloomin’ winter? As I sit here now, it’s grey and cold and wet and definitely doesn’t feel like the midst of Spring. I’m ready for balmy summer days seeking respite in front of the fridge and frantically waving anything in front of my face that might create a cooling draft!
