Changes and Happiness!

Helloooo! It's been a long time since I wrote a post. Life has been moving along very quickly and very smoothly and I couldn't be happier with the way things are headed.

So, what's been happening? Steve and I are completely and utterly engrossed in each other. I had a combined Birthday (I turned 39), housewarming (more about that in a bit) and meet Steve party in the middle of last month. It was lovely to have most of the people I love in one room at the same time. My friends have never met each other and have always been kept separate so it was nice to have them together for the first time ever. I 3 wore a dress and had my hair and makeup done. I felt like a Princess!



Steve and I have been splitting our time between my new home in Lancashire and his in Birmingham. The week following my party, we came to Brum and I met up with a friend, Manda, who I haven't seen in 3 years. It was a brilliant day and it was so nice to have her meet Steve and share my happiness with her. Earlier that day, Steve and I had been shopping for my engagement ring and he proposed in the middle of the BullRing shopping centre. Of course I said yes! This man is the most amazing, kind, caring, considerate man I have ever met and I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives together.


 
 
So, more about my new home. For the first time in my life, I am renting a home of my own. I love the house and am having so much fun adding bits and pieces making it my own, out own. I love having Steve around and being a part of it all. I am finding it fun learning how to be a proper grown-up! I have bills and responsibilities and I get to grumble about paying Council Tax! Woohoo!
  
I have begun taking my little stamp business seriously and am loving supporting my customers and suppliers. It's not easy, the work is really tedious and monotonous, but I hope I can make it work and build a proper life for us by doing this.
 
A few other changes I have made are external. I have had my hair chemically straightened, got a new tattoo and had my first ever gel nail manicure. The hair makes me feel like a million dollars, a totally new woman and I love it! The tattoo is to symbolize my new beginning. It's a 3D butterfly in pink and turquoise on my chest and I adore it! I got Steve's initials incorporated in it too. The nails make me feel feminine and pretty, something I struggle with regularly.
 


 
 
So, there you go. You're all caught up! It's been a busy time and I'm a happy bunny! My counselling is all finished, I'm still on my anti depressants and anti anxiety medication but the dark days are few and far between now. That's what being loved and feeling safe can do for you...
 
Thanks for checking in and sticking with me! Love ya! Txx

My Books of The Year 2018!!

Hello you beautiful people! It's that time of the year again, time to round up the books I have read in 2018 and tell you which ones made my list. I love and hate this in equal measure. I love looking back on my reads from the year but I hate feeling like I left off a book that I loved or missed a hidden gem. I worked long and hard on this list and I feel really good about it this year. I have read 53 out of the 45 books I had hoped to read this year, so I'm pretty pleased with that.

So, here we go!

Best Debut: The Lido by Libby Page

Best Memoir: I have a tie here between Eat. Drink, Run by Bryony Gordon    AND

Most Surprising Book: I Flipping Love You by Helena Hunting. I don't normally read New Age or Romantic books, but I went to school with the author and was excited to try one of her books. I absolutely loved it…

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for No One Cancels Christmas by Zara Stoneley!

What They Say:
It’s the most magical time of the year, and for travel agent Sarah it’s also the busiest! But this year one man threatens to ruin Christmas for Sarah’s customers – Mr Grinch, Will Armstrong. The Shooting Star Mountain resort is a magical place, and Sarah has fond memories of Christmas here as a little girl – visits to Father Christmas, husky rides in the snow and hot chocolate by a roaring fire.

But getting Will into the Christmas spirit is hopeless – he is Bah Humbug personified! But as Sarah gets to know him better, she realises that underneath all the gloom is a man struggling with a pain of his own.
