Life Lately

It’s occurred to me that I don’t often write about me and whats happening when actually, that’s the kind of thing I like to read. Diary style blog posts are my favourite and it’s very cathartic to write this way, almost like I’m writing a letter to an old friend to catch them up on my latest and greatest. It’s been an absolutely mad couple of months, I haven’t been able to spend nearly as much time on here as I would like but things are going well in other places, and life sometimes gets in the way.  

Dom and I celebrated our six year anniversary at the end of last month. I can't believe how quickly time goes but in the same thought, everything changes in a year. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me and anniversaries are my favourite days. We so rarely get to be just us so I treasure any time I get with him. We stayed in an amazing Wagon in the woods that I wrote about here. Then, as a surprise, I took Dom to walk over the O2 with Up at the O2. He wasn't too impressed as I've been joking for years that he might be secretly afraid of heights! It rained all day which is why I look all gross and messy. Also the jumpsuits are massive and do NOT make me look cute. It stopped raining just long enough for us to make our way up and over and head off to the Blues Kitchen for some well-deserved cocktails with a side of meat coma. Frozen raspberry margaritas are amazing for an end of summer drink fyi.

I've stepped up my training with Aerial Hoop and I now have more bruises than ever. I had a few weeks in a row where I really struggled and I felt like I was getting behind the othe
rs. After feeling a bit mopey I decided that the only way to get better at something was to do it and then practise loads. I doubled my classes and now have a few new tricks under my belt. I tend to post little snippets of routines on Instagram if you are curious. It's a great way for me to track my progress and see how far I have come. I still have so far to go but it makes me so happy to be up there. 

We are still waiting to see if we have been accepted for our house. It's literally one of the most stressful and heart breaking things I have ever done. I am clearly not ready for adult life and all of this serious business about interest rates and 'making a plan'. Instead I've been shopping for homeware and wishing on anything that moves. Since seeing the house nearly finished, I’m completely attached and have already planned the next few years of my life living there, naturally. We have got to the point now where we kind of stalk the house, we just go there to have a peek and see where it’s at. Terribly pathetic I know.

So that’s me. Drinking margarita’s, hanging upside down, still madly in love and stalking a building. Just your average twenty-something right? Right!?
