Update #58416974

Hey guys! It’s been rather a long time since I last posted. A lot has happened and my life has been turned upside down so blogging has become a distant memory.

Luckily I had an email to renew my subscription which then jolted me to update everything now I know where my life is heading (finally).

As ever there is good news and bad news for myself, rather than give a lengthy discussion on each, bullet points will do instead;

Bad News

  • My depression came back hard
  • Work ethic / attitude dwindled
  • My relationship ended with Tim
  • I’m having to move out of the house
  • I’m having to re-home Albert
  • Body is physically falling apart

Good News

  • Had intense private therapy which greatly helped
  • I felt confident in my decision to end my relationship
  • Feeling much freer
  • Found a house share with people I already know
  • Housemates have a dog
  • Get to decorate my room how I want
  • Therapy sessions are becoming less frequent
  • Progressing in work again
  • Improved relationship with parents


Next I need to revamp some of my bucket list goals (for the billionth time – it’s not cheating right?) say goodbye to

  • Yorkshire 3 Peaks
  • Muddy Dog Challenge
  • Dog Agility Classes
  • Climb Snowdon
  • Visit Machu Picchu
  • Visit the Lake District
  • NYC @ Christmas

Then say hello and welcome to

  • Guitar Lessons
  • Visit Croatia
  • Visit Slovenia
  • See the Harry Potter Play
  • Complete a puzzle with over 1,000 pieces
  • Get a bikini wax
  • Watch 10 classic movies from 1930’s to 1970’s





The Big 30

I’m not actually sure why 30 is a milestone birthday but I’ll take it and have it as an excuse to party. I suppose it is a bit of a limbo age. You’re not old old and ready to sign up for your pension but you’re old enough to refer to everyone as “like 12” because they are younger than you. On the flip side you’re also not a teenager as your hangover takes two days to get rid of and you get excited about buying duvet sets or a new kettle.

I think it was the day after my 25th birthday I genuinely forgot my pin number for my card (my card was not contactless at this stage). So I have low hopes for my memory in my thirties!

Anyway I digress here is the big list of 30:

Well here goes….

Procrastinating at work, like everyone does, I gave myself a mini challenge to tick off 30 things before I’m 30. One of those achievements was to start a blog. So why not blog about me completing my bucket list!

I am known to be honest and straight forward about everything. So be prepared for many of my tactless musings. Please don’t comment how horrible I am – I kinda already know.

I have had many opportunities and experiences to complete a bucket list already as I’ve travelled a fair bit and have eagerly volunteered myself to try new things since I was young. But as a Sagittarius I love adventure, am curious about many a subject and love to learn new things that change my life and my view on the world. So let’s begin this new chapter!
