Bon Voyage Me!

7 Oct

Hello lovelies 🙂

I hope you’re all (those of you that stuck around with me this long!) very very well. I may not have been writing, but rest assured I have still been reading up on your lives! Anyway, my big Indonesian adventure starts this week, and I would be honoured if you hopped over to my new blog and kept up to date with adventures.

Have a great Monday – don’t forget to awesome 🙂



Game Changer.

5 Sep

Wow, it’s been a LONG time since I was here! I’ve missed my little corner of the blogosphere, but the last few months have literally flown by in a big rush of courses and lesson planning and job leaving festivities!

Now for the big one…I’m moving to Indonesia! I have a job teaching English in Jakarta and will be leaving at the end of the month. I’ve had a few problems processing my visa (stupid immigration) but it seems it has been granted today so I am thrilled to share the news with you all! 🙂 I’m feeling very apprehensive about being away from home for such a long time, but I have been really miserable for the past week when I wasn’t sure if my visa would be granted and whether I’d be able to go at all, so deep down I’m taking that as a sign that it is meant to be, and the excitement is starting to set in! Have any of you ever visited Java (or nearby)? Any advice greatly appreciated, I am going in a little blind here!

I hope I’ll be able to write a little more now, seeing as I am temporarily unemployed and have A LOT of free time on my hands, but I am also trying to come up with a name (to either change this, or start a new blog) when I start travelling, so please put your minds to work on that one too!

Anyway, I have still been reading blogs recently, but still, it’s been a while so what have I missed?!


Busy Bee

19 May

Hi guys,

Wow, I’m still so busy! Half term next week really cannot come soon enough – I have a few days scheduled in with my bff and a trip to see a psychic!

Until then it’s work work work, and run run run, then finally sleep sleep sleep!

I have enjoyed a few days away this weekend to see my little brother in his final ever Drama School performance! I know I sound old and like your great aunt, but seriously, where has the time gone? My ‘little’ brother is now 21 and about to make his own way in the world, and whatever happens I couldn’t be more proud of him 🙂 Photos to follow later this week.

One more week, let’s do this.

How have you all been?

An ex-student told me today that he preferred Hakuna Matata to YOLO and that was the attitude that he was taking towards life.

Love my job.

I can’t believe this little blog has been going for 2 whole years now!

It (and I) have changed a lot over this time, but the one constant is that it is a place for me to make friends and share my daily life.

Thank you for reading, I hope you continue to enjoy our journey and here’s to another great year!

3 Days In…

…to my new healthy lifestyle (!!) and things are going well. I have been keeping a successful food diary and have just signed up for a July 10k with some friends at work – accountability is key! Time to sort my life out (again!).
