Life update!

Life update!

WOW I have so much to tell you all……….don’t worry I’ve not been swallowed whole by the pit of despair that I spent most of July in. In fact the reason I’ve been away is totally the opposite and I’m absolutely in love with my new life.

I turned 33 on July 30th a day I had planned on spending in bed being miserable, however I woke up with a new outlook and a new burning desire to change a few aspects of my life. So I got up, took a much needed shower, did my hair and make up and decided that 33 was absolutely going to be my year. And I can safely say, hand on heart 22 days into being 33, that this is already going to be my most amazing year yet. I feel more confident, sexy, brave and ready to take on the world, it’s as if a switch has been flipped in my brain and I now know I can do absolutely anything I want, all my fears have melted away.

New Job!

Within the first four days of turning 33 I applied, was interviewed, offered, accepted and started a new job, and not just any job but my dream job in my favourite city. I honestly can’t tell you how much of a cloud I have been floating around on the last three weeks. However I am now working my notice on one job and working at my new job, hence the serious lack of blogging. Which will be back to normal now as I only have two more days left at my old job before I can really start my totally different and amazing new life.

New Job = New City!

At the moment I am commuting to my new job, something I don’t want to be doing for very long. So my next goal is to move to Manchester before Christmas. I have been viewing flats and house shares across the city centre, I can’t tell you how excited I am for a fresh start, going for cocktails after work and lazy Sunday morning brunches. Most importantly I am excited for living in Manchester in time for the Christmas markets. The strangest part is that I’m not even in the slightest bit nervous, I’m just full of excitement for a new start in a new city.


And finally I have started dating again in a big way!!!

If there was ever a time in my life when I know exactly what I want it is now! I’ve already mastered the art of the first date, as well as the mid date walk out when I’m less then impressed. But believe me my dating stories are several blog posts all on there own.

There you have it, that’s where I’ve been and what I’ve been up to. I’m still alive, although severely exhausted but I’m happier than ever and about to start a whole new exciting chapter. I can honestly say that the ending of something has started the beginning of something absolutely amazing. It’s hard to believe that four weeks ago I was still crying over a boy with a job I hate. Now I can’t even ever imagine my life not going in the direction it has taken, I still whole heartily believe in fate, even the bad bits.
