5 things you may not know about me.Life Update: Spring/Summer 2019.

Hi and welcome back.

I apologise for the delay between blog posts. My life has become a bit mental, as everyone’s is these days. It seems that the past few months have been a whirlwind of traveling between my childhood town and where I currently live. My Sunday blog posts have not made it to publishing lately, and I sincerely thank you for baring with me during this time. Moving forwards, my Sunday blog posts have now been altered to one every other week as opposed to weekly. I hope this is not too much of a change and once I am settled, I hope to move back to twice weekly Thursday and Sunday blog posts. As for today, I thought it would be a good idea to share a bit more about me and my life. So here are 5 things you may not know about me. I hope you enjoy. C. -x-


Number 1: Autumn is my favourite season

Now don’t get me wrong, there is nothing I enjoy more than swimming in the sea and going snorkling or curling up in the winter with a good book, but for me, there is something special about Autumn. I love the changing colours of the leaves in the trees; I love getting comfy wearing jumpers but not needing a coat yet and seeing the first sign of dew and frost on the grass in the mornings.

Number 2: I have a passion for animals

I work full time as a Registered Veterinary Nurse and after 4 years at university, I am now in my 5th year of being a fully qualified nurse. I love helping animals, educating owners and working in a veterinary practice. I have patients that have never left me, I have blisters and sore knees from lifting and crawling on the floor saying hi to puppies, kittens and those elderly patients who struggle to move. It is a true passion of mine and I am honoured every day that I get the opportunity to help animals and owners. I also have many pets at home including my: 3 year old bouncy black Labrador Shadow, 2 crested geckos and 2 axolotls.

Number 3: I am moving towards Minimalism

I cover this in my No-Spend Challenge blogs which you can check out here if you are interested but I used to be a total shopoholic. There wasn’t a weekend when I wouldn’t be out shopping (whether it was at a garden centre or a shopping centre looking for more clothes and books) the shear number of items I owned was just overwhelming. Over the last year, I undertook a spending challenge and pleased to say I achieved this. Since moving into 2019, I have found myself being more aware of my shopping habits and becoming much more aware of my impact on the environment. I no longer find joy in buying items and am finding joy in the items I do have. If you want a blog post on this topic, please let me know.


Number 4: I don’t really enjoy watching TV

I know! A complete shocker. In a world where there is so much entertainment available on the TV, it is easy to curl up on the sofa at the end of the day and binge watch a new tv series. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good evening binge watching Netflix; just not all the time. I always find myself feeling overexhausted if I spend all night watching TV. Instead, I am more likely to be found taking my dog for long walks – listening to a podcast – or reading a book. I am a self-confessed bookaholic. It has gotten to the stage where one of the nurses I work with is baffled when I come in every other day, with a new book. My favourite authors are: James Patterson, Alexa Steele and Diane Chamberlain. I also love to read non-fiction books (my all time favourite has to be An Edited Life by Anna Newton – my copy no longer has a clear front cover as I’ve rubbed it off from reading it too many times! In all seriousness, if you are looking for a good book to help with organizing, I can’t recommend this book enough.

Number 5: I’m hoping to move closer to family this year

You can read more about my story in my blog post from the beginning of this year on New Year Goals but I am working hard to move closer to family this year. And it is tough. Much tougher than I expected it to be. We are finally moving forward with our move plan so I am hopeful for the Autumn time and we are hopefully house hunting. Wish us luck!


There you go! I hope this blog post has given you the chance to get to know me a little better. I hope you enjoyed. Stay tuned for more blog posts in my How to Make series and another What I Eat in a Day. Let me know what other blog posts you would like to see.
