Bank Holiday walk

This bank holiday weekend seemed to creep up on me out of the blue but ah it was so nice to have 3 days off! I think every working week should be 4 days - 5 is such a chore and when the weekend rolls around it just goes by so quickly. Unfortunately I couldn’t spend it lazying and doing nice housey things with David as he had to go away to work at the Motocross GP, sob. I was a bit miffed at first because I thought this is our first long weekend in our new home and he’s swanning off but I know it’s something he really wanted to go to and to be honest it went really quickly and was a nice change to have some time alone – I had the dog to keep me company too! 
So, on Monday I made sure we got outside and did something, especially as it was going to be a sunny day.
We haven’t really explored much of our new surroundings so I google’d dog walks and found one at Woodchester which had a haunted mansion – ha! It was only a 20 minute drive and it was huge grounds with loads of people who clearly had the same idea (either that or needed to walk off all that extra food and drink from the weekend). There were 3 trails you could take, 1 hour, 2 hour and 4 hour (I think!) so I opted for the 2 hour trail as it went past the boathouse and river which I thought would be really nice, rather than just walking through lots of woods all morning.
There’s a few pictures below of the walk and I’d definitely go back and try another trail or perhaps go back with a picnic or something. Always seem to say that though, I’ll go somewhere and then think we should have bought this, or we should have done that! Ah well. It was quite hilly, especially when you walk back to the beginning the hill is really steep. Fair to say me, David and Bella (the woofer) were all pretty tired by the time we got back home.

Beautiful, ay? What did you get up to on the Bank Holiday weekend? Hope you had a nice break. Not long until we have another weekend to enjoy! Woop.

I'm back!

Hey guys! I've not blogged in suchhh a long time and recently I've really wanted to get back into the world of blogging as I feel like I have so much I want to start sharing as life has completely changed for me. I originally started blogging as I wanted to get back into writing and show off what I could do, I loved it but as my last few months in University were getting harder I took a bit of a step back and before I knew it I had started a new as Marketing Coordinator for a large property company. I found I only had time to blog on weekends and, to be honest, when the weekends came around all I wanted to do was go out and have fun with friends, family and my boyfriend. So I decided that I didn't want to do something half-hearted and stopped blogging.
Since then I've moved cities, bought a house with my boyfriend, got a new job and I'm started to feel very grown up! There will no doubt be lots of exciting things happening in the near future and I really want to document it and the best way to do that is here, with you guys! I also tried out a sneaky little youtube video a few weeks ago which was so fun and weirdly liberating to see yourself on such a huge site.

So to get back into the swing of things I've had a little blog refresh - changed the name and look a little bit as the original name just didn't suit what I wanted to blog about anymore - and here I am! I hope you'll come back and see what's happening and I look forward to telling you all about it :)
