I really wanted to put together a little post to talk about the highs and lows of 2016!
Getting Married; Let’s be honest. This had to be at the top of the pile. What a year 2016 has been. Myself and Chris celebrated our sixth year together by getting married surrounded by our wonderful family and friends. It really was a perfect day and I could not fault anything about it. The weather even brightened up slightly for us to have our photos! In the new year there will be a series about the wedding which I would love for you to check out!
Celebrating one year in our house; I cannot believe we have been in our house for a year now. I ended up taking three weeks gardening leave earlier in the year and got the back bedroom, bathroom, living room and kitchen painted which has made it feel so homely. Whilst I’m still a rubbish housewife and hate tidying, washing and ironing, I just love looking around and seeing our home. There is nothing more satisfying that seeing Malc the Dog lying on the sofa relaxing with Chris. It just makes my heart happy!
New Job and Promotion; This year I took the plunge and left my job. I had made incredible friends at my company and done a really good job but I was comfortable and to be honest, bored. My boss was very difficult and stuck in his ways; I applied for a couple of jobs internally but got nowhere so I knew that it was time to stretch my wings and go elsewhere. I made a massive decision to make a move and it has paid off. I’ve been wonderfully lucky and met some incredible friends (who I went to Dublin with in this video ) and absolutely love my job. I had been at the newest job around 3 months when I got a massive promotion and it has just shown me that hard work really does pay off. Yay!
2016 has been an incredible year.. Here’s to a new year full of new memories, laughter and love!
