Hey guys, how are you all!? So I’ve been doing a little tinkering with the site to make it a bit more accessible and aesthetically pleasing. I’ve also introduced a Gallery which I will be updating throughout the year with different trips and adventures, as well as general photography.
I’ll also be uploading a couple of big blogs from my time in Amsterdam and Radio 1’s big weekend last year pretty soon so keep your eyes peeled.
Also if you’ve got any tips or advice on the new layout let me know 🙂
I hope you all enjoy!
Time to get into that January routine!
So who else is ready for the Winter?
It’s that time of year again! It’s dark when you leave for work in the mornings and dark when you come home. You can’t hit the snooze button five times because you have to spend your morning defrosting the car, but you can always find a car parking space because nobody leaves the house 🙂
I find once the Christmas festivities are over and we’re all back to work from the Christmas break that this is when I start my routine again. That familiar routine of going to work, returning home from work, (usually there’d be a ‘go the gym’ part here but due injury I’m becoming a right little fatty lol) meeting up with the guys, spending the rest of the night cosying up in the warm binging on Seasons of Game of Thrones, Homelands or whatever takes my fancy and not leaving the house otherwise (I’ve got so many different programmes to watch this year I actually can’t wait!). I hear on the radio that most people refer to January as one of the worst months of the year, but I do quite like it, after-all it’s one of the only times you can acceptably become a hermit and turn off from the world.
This is also usually one of the best times for me to save money! I go out on a Thursday night for our Pool League and in monetary terms that’s my only luxury of expenses. I feel this year is the year for savings for me, cross your fingers for me guys and this time next year I’ll be writing a ‘Moving in to my new house’ blog (laughing out loud to myself at that sentence, ironic, but being a near-genius with numbers I’m so bad at saving money!)
I do have a thought though, maybe this year I should learn something, that will be constructive for the future, with all of this extra free time I have?? I haven’t a clue what but something that I could learn from the confines of my house, if you’ve got any ideas drop it in a comment. Also if you’ve got any good Series you recommend please do! (Currently watching Scorpion, Homelands, Pretty Little Liars < don’t judge the brothers missus watches it all the time and however repetitive it is I’m hooked haha!)
After what’s been one of the warmest December’s I’ve known the weathers really changed coming into the New Year and Jesus-Christ it is cold! I really do hope we’ll get some snow this year, I got some really cool camera lenses for my phone which I’m itching to try out, but I’m not holding my hopes up!! Which reminds me, I’m going to be getting a lot more involved with these weekly photo challenges this year, so if you like those watch this space 🙂
A little late I must admit – but happy holidays and happy New Year to you all!
I hope you’ve all had a lovely time in whatever you celebrate with your family and friends.
2016’s been a bit of a disaster year for everyone it seems, so here’s to a an amazing 2017!
We’re all geared up for the trip away! Had a good pre-night drink with guys which didn’t end up in much sleep, but we’re all ready. Currently sitting in the airport waiting for our ‘delayed’ flight. It’s only 45 minutes but waiting is one thing I rather dislike. It just feels like a complete waste, you could be doing literally a million other things. It won’t dampen our spirits though, in a couple of hours we’ll be boarding the train into the center of Amsterdam 😀
I hope you all have a great weekend, I know I will!
Just a little thanks to all of those following!
Okay so I received a notification yesterday stating that I’d hit 100 followers. Now I know compared to some of you ‘bigwig’ bloggers that that is minuscule and you probably gain that in a week or a month, but I was a little surprised that I’d hit treble figures :).
A lot of my followers I’ve had some form of contact with since the start of my blogging days, some really great advice has been given to me too which has been awesome, but unfortunately I don’t get around to socialising with all of you. I guess this is more of a post to say ‘Hello’ if I haven’t already and thank you for following, rather than a celebration! I really appreciate you all and I would love to get to know my followers a little better. So please, if you would be so kind, leave a comment with a little about yourself and maybe a fun fact :D.
Again, thank you all for reading. I’m heading out to Amsterdam in a week so I’m sure I’ll have some exciting escapades to blog about in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. I’ve got a couple of more serious pieces I’m working on also, just struggling to find a bit of time to get some decent writing in.
