I hate getting up early on a Saturday. Saturdays should be for lie-ins. Except one particular Saturday when I met up with my lovely friend Rachael at 9am at Pool Valley (in Brighton) to travel up to London to see the Leicester Square Christmas Market!
31st October 2018 was not only Hallowe’en, it also marked the 7th year anniversary of my move to Brighton so, what better way to celebrate than to look back at my 7 years here? 😀
March has been a bit of a “blink and you’ll miss it” month. It’s also been a bit rubbish if I’m being honest. I feel like my blog is lacking direction at the moment and I don’t know where to take it. I’ve barely blogged at all 🙁 I’ve also not really felt myself and at the beginning of the month I lacked any motivation, boooo!
Well, I finally made it to Southampton to see Alice and Joshua 😀 I also got a fab surprise in the form of Emily, Alice’s sister!! I follow her on social media and have chatted to her for ages, so it was lovely to finally meet!!
Back in 2011, I was feeling ridiculously adventurous and wildly free after another bad break-up with another complete asshole, so I spontaneously booked myself some plane tickets round the USA for three weeks (I’ve written a little about this in my reverse bucket list post). Part of my stay included a long weekend in New Orleans and I packed in some amazing things.
Last weekend, Rachael and I travelled up to London to check out Friends Fest! We’d had the tickets booked since March, so you can bet we were super excited. Well, I was, after a coffee and a Bagelman (sausage, mushroom and cheese!)
I get 4 buses a day on average to get to and from work, which works out at over 1,000 buses a year! Over the years, I’ve witnessed some pretty annoying bus behaviours, so I thought I’d share some of the ones that annoy me the most!!
I used to love cycling when I was younger but when I moved to the Isle of Wight at 13, I sold my bike because it was too hilly!! So every year since, I’ve been saying I want to buy a bike, so I can ride along the seafront to take in the summer beautiful views. Then every year I don’t end up buying a bike because I doubt I’d use it often enough to make it worthwhile.
Every month, Rachael and I make time to hang out with each other and try and do something different and fun. Among other things, we’ve been to the Foodie’s Festival, the True Crime Museum, bowling and to a spa (which Rachael wrote about here.)
But this month was one of the most exciting months so far because we only bloody went to the Harry Potter Studio Tour in London!! #HazzaP
