A little life update

Now, I’m quite proud of my little blog and space on the internet. I like to think of it as kind of like an online journal. One of the biggest things I have learnt over the last couple of years is to get things off your chest, whether that be talking to someone or writing it down, it helps to get it out. So, with that being said I’m not going to lie to anyone here, my 2019 has been one of the biggest emotional roller coasters I’ve ever experienced and we are only a month and five days in – I’m not even over exaggerating! I have felt every single emotion you can think of.. happiness, anger (on another level), sadness, confusion, nervous, excited.. the list goes on!

New Job
I’m not going to go in to too much detail (even though I want to go off on a massive rant and shame people like I’ve never shamed before) so I’ll start positive by saying I got a new job! Yayyy, after months of searching on the 18th January, which also happened to be my 23rd birthday, I got the call to say I’d got a new job. I’d never felt so relieved. After months feeling so miserable in what I thought was my dream job, I could finally leave with my head held high and go on to bigger and better things and I can honestly say hand on heart that I have never felt happier. My old job was made miserable for me for many reasons, the main reason being my manager. I have never met someone who would work as hard as she did at making me feel so belittled, so useless and just generally horrendous. Especially someone I was expected to rely on for help and guidance and interactive with on a daily basis. I felt sick every morning on my way in and felt on the verge of tears the whole time I was there until it was time to leave. My mental health has never suffered as badly as it has the last 8 months or so because of one persons incapability of being nice. Prior to that job, I worked in retail for five years and came across some difficult people, but nothing like her. I have been in my new job now for about 10 days, and I can’t believe the drastic change in my self esteem, my mental health and just my overall mood and happiness. My new colleagues are friendly, they are helpful and they are so welcoming. Rather than having someone go out of their way to make me feel horrendous, I have people going out of their way to be helpful and to look out for me. I mean yes, it’s early days but I think I’m going to be happy here which is a whole new experience for me. Karma works in mysterious ways! Fingers crossed it’s onwards and upwards from now on!

New House!
Some of you who read my 2019 goals maybe aware that we’ve finally achieved our dream and bought our first house. After years of discussions and searching and saving, all our hard work paid off and on the 4th November 2018 we reserved our first ever home. It’s a new build home, about 20/25 minutes away from the village I have lived my whole life in pretty little Cornwall. It’s a three bedroom mid terrace house and we are due to complete and move in in June 2019. We couldn’t be more excited and the home shopping is already well and truly underway. We are trying not to buy too much at the minute, although I couldn’t resist the kettle and toaster I wanted when it was on offer! We also have some little things such as cutlery and pots and pans that our family has started picking up for us,but other than that we are holding off until nearer the time. We are extremely grateful, and I plan on doing lots of house related posts in the coming months! But I am SO excited, and I can’t wait to buy my own cleaning products and clean, thanks to the famous Mrs Hinch!!

That’s all for my little life update, I know my blog has been slightly neglected recently but I do plan on changing that this year. I’m especially excited to start post house and homeware posts! Hopefully this year carries on being a positive one.

Thanks for reading my blabber, hope you’re all doing great!
