Things that have changed...

I haven't posted anything on my blog in over a year and I have no idea why! Well, I do. I have been SUPER busy and had lots of new things going on that I haven't really even had time to think about posting on my blog. Where do I start?

In January 2015 when I last posted on my blog, I did The Magical Orlando Tag, as I was on my countdown to visiting Walt Disney World in Florida with my best friend Chelsea in June. Since then, so much has changed! Holidays, boyfriends, moving, new jobs and more!

The main reason I got distracted from blogging in the beginning was because I was spending a LOT of my time with my boyfriend who I had been with in school, but we both moved to different places and drifted apart. We started talking again in the February 2015, we got together officially in the April and we are happier than ever right now!

The countdown did continue for Florida, and seemed to take forever, but then the day before arrived and we were like 'that went so fast!' I will be doing a completely separate post on my trip to Disney VERY SOON, but I had an absolutely amazing time, I didn't want to come home whatsoever!

After I got back from America, I then graduated from Liverpool Hope University with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours Degree in Education and Early Childhood - a day I never thought I would see! My three years at uni seemed to fly by and was one of the best things I have done with my life so far and was absolutely worth it. Graduation day was a very long (and quite boring, sorry!) day, but wearing the cap and gown and having all of my family there and enjoying a celebratory meal together was the best part of it all.

After graduating, I managed to get myself a job in a primary school - the school I had always set my sights on and the reason why I went to university in the first place which was amazing! I started in September and love my job a lot!

I then celebrated my 22nd birthday in September with an amazing present from my boyfriend - a Christmassy weekend away to London! He knew that I wanted to go back to London for a few days at some point and he knows that I LOVE Christmas so this present was really thoughtful. We went to London on the 19th of December for 4 days and had a fabulous time. It was my boyfriend's first time in London so we did the whole 'tourist' part of London - Big Ben, Oxford Street, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, Harrods and Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park.

The day after we arrived back, we went to view a couple of apartments! This was really exciting for us just before Christmas as we fell in love with the second one that we viewed. It wasn't too far away from my parents' house either which was really important to me. I mentioned briefly earlier, but my boyfriend and I went to school together, a year apart, and since then he had moved about an hour and a half away from where my home with my parents was and a bit later on I moved to Liverpool for uni. It was really hard sometimes with the distance as none of us drive! But we ended up being successful with the apartment we fell in love with and moved in in February 2016. After getting the apartment, he left his job where he was living and moved back home to live with me and got a new job around here.

I hope to get my long and overdue post about mine and Chelsea's trip to Walt Disney World very soon and will share lots of pictures too!
