#1: New month = New positivity. February is one of my favourite months of year and there are plenty of good times ahead!
#2: HAPPY GROUNDHOG DAY! Today I started a new job and after reaching the final sentence in my first assignment, I lost all of my work. After resigning myself to the fact that I wouldn’t be able to retrieve it, I re-wrote the article again. Whilst it certainly wasn’t funny at the time, I found humour in the situation later. I persevered and my first piece was published (read it by clicking the image below).
#3: I have been hit with a bad virus – and with it comes a multitude of symptoms – but I have been taken care of (day and night) by family, which has made me feel well loved.
#4: Today I completely lost my voice but my parents kept me entertained on the car journey to the doctors, which lifted my spirits. I was laughing, albeit silently.
#5: Dancing to music while packing my suitcase for the weekend #FridayFeeling
#6: Stephen and I were both wiped out from our weeks (and our viruses) so we had a chilled out weekend. A highlight being playing Lego Jurassic World together!
#7: After a relaxing weekend, I had a burst of energy at the end of the night, which helped me to relieve some of the pressures ahead of the coming week.
#8: Even though it was a gloomy Monday weather-wise, I ticked off everything on my ‘to-do’ list and that felt GREAT!
#9: HAPPY PANCAKE DAY! Fun fact: I was born on pancake day back in 1990, so we always like to celebrate with syrup-filled pancakes and ice cream.
#10: Taking a break to have a chat with my mum over lunch.
#11: After a very busy day, I enjoying sinking into my bed early to unwind, browse the internet and then catch up on the all-important Zzz’s.
#12: I had some more free time today, which allowed me to give my rooms a thorough clean while listening to music – truly therapeutic!
#13: A film night that consisted of eating Ben ‘n’ Jerry’s Cookie Dough ice cream and wearing onesies!
#14: HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Feeling loved and feeling happy, after a perfect day that concluded with a viewing of The Little Mermaid (1989), I couldn’t stop smiling.
#15: Enjoying an extended weekend and going on a shopping trip with my mum and Stephen, it was a lovely (and well-earned) break from our ordinary routines.
#16: On our final day off before returning to work, Stephen and I themed our outfits to some of our favourite movies. I wore a Back to the Future sweater and he wore a Star Wars t-shirt.
#17: After my dad spent three days away on a business trip, it was nice to see him arrive home safely and walk through the door. We spent the rest of the evening (literally hours) chatting and catching up.
#18: Starting a new television series (American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson) after work, we were all hooked.
#19: Having a successful day at work with my articles making the front page and finishing for another weekend!
#20: Stephen and I made our own pancakes for lunch and then went on a nice long walk together.
#21: Laughter is the best medicine and we could not stop laughing at the silliest of things this morning.
#22: My mum started creating my birthday cake and shared the theme with me, which is Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. I can’t wait to see how it all comes together!
#23: I received a compliment about my work background and portfolio from an industry professional, which helped me to feel more confident and assured in my abilities.
#24: Catching up with an old friend, which had been long overdue.
#25: I had a lovely day out with my mum and we both got our hair done at the hairdressers, I felt 10x lighter after it!
#26: The official start to my extended birthday weekend. We kicked off the celebrations with lots of wonderful gifts and enjoying my favourite cuisine – a chinese!
#27: MY BIRTHDAY! I spent the day with my family and I saw my adorable niece Evelyn (18 months old), who never fails to make me feel happy. I also enjoyed going on a walk with Stephen and my brother with his dog Einstein. Later we had a delicious buffet and we cut into the birthday cake. Mmm!
#28: Watching the Narnia films with mum, dad and Stephen – a proper family night!
#29: Since it was a leap day we all booked the time off work and made the most of the day together. We even managed to squeeze in the final Narnia film, which acted as the perfect piece of escapism before returning to work.
