Aaaaand we’re back! Welcome back to all my old friends, and hello to anyone new that has joined us recently. It’s the first of June, It’s a Friday morning, and while I am currently sitting waiting to get onboard the StenaLine boat to Cairnryan, I thought what better way to kick back into my blogging than to have a little catch up post with a giveaway at the end? Keep reading to take part!So as I say, I’m currently sitting waiting to get on the boat to Scotland once again. I’ll go into the whys and everything later, but wow I haven’t written a new month post in ages! June has sort of come at us out of nowhere, and I promised myself I would get back to blogging this month so fingers crossed it works.
April 2018 – A Look Back
April was busy enough to be honest. Rachel was home at the very start of April for Easter, and so we certainly made the most of the Easter weekend. Good Friday saw us head up to the north coast for a lovely day out. We did some shopping in Coleraine, had a picnic in Port Ballantrae, went for a bit of a walk in Portrush, and finished our day at Neptune and Prawn – our new favourite place to eat up north! Saturday then we went on a pub crawl around Belfast, finishing with dinner in a tapas restaurant, and it really would be safe to say that a good day was had all round. Easter Sunday saw me doing some computer work and Rachel revising, but when the afternoon came around we decided to say stuff it and have a cocktail making afternoon. Needless to say, we all tried many different drinks, and we need another cocktail afternoon soon! The rest of the holiday passed, and soon Rachel headed back to Edinburgh. A couple of weeks later, I went to my first ever Ulster rugby match and we basked in the sun – making the win even more enjoyable! Another week of work passed, and then Mum and I went to see Abigail’s Party in the Belfast Mac. It was a brilliant show, and I would seriously recommend you watch it if you ever get the chance!
May 2018 – Looking Back
May then started with Mum visiting Rachel in Edinburgh, and Dad and I had a weekend of getting little bits and pieces done. We went to see Infinity War (oh my god I am still recovering from that film…), I got my hair done and started getting it back to what I actually want from it, Dad and I went looking at cars, and we had dinner at my aunt’s house. Sunday and Monday were then spent lounging in the sun. Ten days later, after working and having a great time, I went to see Lovers: Winners and Losers in The Lyric, Belfast, with my granny. It was an interesting play, and for anyone in the area there’s still a chance to see it! It’s showing until 10th June, so check out the ticket times and prices through the following link –> https://lyrictheatre.co.uk/event/lovers-winners-losers/ – ps if you choose to go, opt for seats further back, you’ll appreciate it when you get there! But to finish off May… Well, the weekend of the royal wedding, Rachel was home again for a visit. We had a 1st birthday party to go to, and then the next day I was at the latest Northern Ireland Blogger Brunch! It was so much fun, and there were so many amazing bloggers there that I came home and immediately booked my place for the Christmas Blogger Brunch! So let me know below if you’re going to be at it, it would be great to see you there! The last full week was started with a lovely bank holiday weekend with barbecues, sun, sleep, and a good clear out of the garage and the attic.
June 2018 – Looking Forward!
Well I suppose that brings us up to June, and the here and now. So as I said earlier, I’m on my way across the Irish Sea today. I have Rachel’s friend Sarah here beside me, and tonight the 3 of us will be seeing Ed Sheeran in concert! This has been almost a year in the making, so I cannot wait to get over. Saturday I’m hoping to catch up with some friends, and then we’re spending the night in Edinburgh at a night out that Rachel has planned. If you’re in Edinburgh, send me a message on Twitter and we might even get to catch up! I’ll be heading back to Lisburn on Sunday night, and straight into work on Monday morning. Then next weekend we have a charity barbecue on the Friday night, and apart from that I don’t really have any plans for the month. We’ll see what comes through I suppose.
Normally around this time I would be talking about my goals for last month, and the goals I’m setting myself for the upcoming month. I’ll be honest and say that my April goals were complete fails. But shall we look at them anyway?
- Lose another 4lbs in weight.
I didn’t really do as well as I would’ve liked to, but I am still on track.
- Read 1 book from my to be read pile.
I didn’t read anything from my to be read pile, but I did manage to read Shine, Before You Let The Sun In, and The Well Deceived! So I’m slowly getting back on track for my reading.
- Watch 1 new film.
I don’t remember if I managed to watch a new film in April or not, but I did see Infinity War last month so I suppose that counts, right?
- Try and post twice a week on my blog.
Lol I think we all know this was a complete disaster… Onwards and upwards!
Wow okay so it actually wasn’t a complete failure! I honestly didn’t expect it to go as well. I will set some small goals for the month though:
- Read 1 book.
- Watch 1 new film.
- Follow my blogging schedule I have made for the month.
- Gut my bedroom of all the rubbish and clutter in it.
