It’s been a while since I’ve bothered to write a post, don’t get me wrong I’ve thought about it (a lot) and had ideas for posts but I’ve been ‘busy’ watching telly and being generally a lazy bitch.
As I type this I’m in the bath with a face mask on looking all kinds of alien like, listening to The XX and to get me back into the swing of things I thought I would do a wee ‘Round Up’ post.
So what’s been happening I hear you ask… I went on holiday with my friends to Croatia, changed jobs and companies at the end of August, got engaged in September and I also turned 30. THAT IS IT. To be honest 2016 was a good year for me, the new job and getting engaged were the two biggest things that happened. Leaving a call centre and taking on a more administrative roll has been an absolute fucking delight! Anyone who has worked in a call centre will know how utterly sole destroying it is, the people are great and I miss all my old work pals, but I cannot be happier to have left!
Onto the ENGAGEMENT, I will be, at some point in the near future ‘Mrs Wilson’ (or ‘Marshall-Wilson’ as I would like to be known). Me and J are in our now 10th year (!), that’s a bloody long time to be with someone so it was inevitable that it was going to happen (and I had an idea that it would be before my 30th). The proposal was nothing fancy or cheesy it was done after dinner in our house (*to be honest he could have asked me in the car driving to the shops and I would have said yes). Thankfully I am OBSESSED with my ring and it fitted so there was no need to resize it, although for the first couple of weeks my ring finger would swell up (I think it was trying to reject it!).
We’ve had the obligatory engagement party which coincided with a Halloween party held by and for my family and now we in the very early stages of planning so hopefully in the next couple of years we will have tied the knot.
I’m hoping that 2017 will be another good year for us and we make changes to the house and organise our wedding, but no doubt there will be some bumps in the road (which will be tackled head on), but I hope whoever and where ever you are that you enjoy what the new year brings you. For now I’m going to top up my bath with hot water as it has gotten cold and contemplate getting out in the next half hour before I turn into a prune.
Hopefully (and I say this every time!) I will be and bit more consistent with this blogging malarkey! But for now, bye Felicia! 👋
