Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, I went away to Wales with my parents and fiance and there was no wifi or 3G signal either (I don't know how I coped!). It rained the WHOLE time we were there but there was a lovely log fire in the cottage so it felt more like a winter holiday than a July holiday! Anyway, we still relaxed and that's what I needed. I should be posting a bit more from now on, I took lots of photos in Wales with the new camera so I'll probably be posting some of those. Here's the ups and downs from the last fortnight :)


+ While we were in Wales we walked up Snowdon which I've been wanting to do for ages. 

+ Alex has his first interview for a graduate job. Eek!

+ Less than 2 weeks to go working at the nursery.

+ My appointment for my consultation for a dental operation finally came through so hopefully the ball will start rolling and I'll be a step closer to getting my braces on (and therefore off!). 

+ The wet weather in Wales did leave me plenty of time to get some reading done. I succumbed to the 50 shades hype and am already half way through the 3rd book! They're so bad but so good!


- After walking up Snowdon I developed a horrible raspy cough (I blame all the cold and rain) and this morning I woke up with a really sore throat so I'm having a sofa day. 

- Feeling so skint at the moment! All I really really want is to be able to go away somewhere hot in September but I don't know if we'll be able to afford it. Why is the UK so wet!?


  1. I can safely say I have never sat in front of a log fire in a cottage. And I'm truely truely jealous of you! Nice to see your ups are outweighing the downs too :)

  2. Great pictures, that ice cream looks amazing! X


  3. Same, my main down at the moment seems to be that I really want to go on holiday!!
    Nice post :)
