I've had a couple of weeks off from blogging - partly because of our little trip to York but also out of laziness - oops! Got a few posts planned this week though. Here's the highs and lows of my last few weeks. 


+ We had a lovely time in York, it was our first holiday just me and Alex in over 2 years. Obviously we live together so can't complain too much but it was nice to be away without our families/friends etc.

+ I found out whilst in York that I got the part-time job at my university's union that I'd applied for! It looks really fun and will provide me with some pocket money :)

+ Alex started his new graduate job this week and is settling in nicely.

+ I survived my first 10k race last weekend! I was so worried about it as my training plan had gone to pot since the dental operation I had a month ago. My aim was simply to finish it but I did better than that and did it in 70minutes which I'm very proud of. Next time sub 60 would be great!


- Alex's new job - although it's a good thing it means he's out the house like 7.30-7.30 every weekday whereas all summer we've barely spent a day apart. Guess that's adult life though.

- 2 weeks til I go back to university - this is a good thing too but I have a feeling third year is going to be tough. 

I hope you've all had lovely weekends and enjoyed the burst of sun we had.
