6 Reasons to smile this week

Wednesday, 26 September 2018

Happy hump day as many would say, thank god it's Wednesday... half way there guys, half way there. 

This week has been long and hard so far, but I want to concentrate on the positives over the negatives, other wise I'll just be grumpy! That's inspired this post, I thought I would share few positive things that have happened, or that's due to happy this week. 

1. I've officially been at my new job for 4 weeks
I've been in my new just for nearly a month now. it's okay as jobs go I definitely am finding it hard because I didn't actually want to leave my old job, but due to moving I had to. I didn't really get that excitement about it, just more the dread of leaving all my old work colleagues and friends. 

It's great pay for the work I do, so really I don't have any complaints. 

2. I re-started my blog?! 
I finally did it! I've been wanting to do this for the past year or so but something always came up. Now, I have no excuses. Every evening is my own, I essentially have no responsibilities so I have so much spare time to take photos, and type my heart away. 

I completely forgot how much time it takes to blog, the writing is the easy part. It's the promoting, editing, the being active on all social media's - it's certainly easy to see how someone would do it as a full time job. 

I have really missed sitting in bed, covered in blankets, a hot water bottle, hot chocolate and just being able to write. I love it, I genuinely do.  

3. Picking up Harry Potter again
I'm a bit naughty when it comes to reading a long book, I sometimes switch between two. Currently I was / am reading A Clash of Kings, but switched to The Order of the Phoenix, it's really brightened my week, it is so easy to read, and so more-ish.  

4. Autumn is here!
I love autumn. It makes me smile so much when I hear the first pumpkin spiced latte, see the autumn leaves, the colour... Oh I love the colours of the clothes! Burnt orange, the deep dark - yet warm colours. It makes my day. I ain't a summer girl, I hate the heat so much so it's a breath of fresh air. 

Yesterday morning I woke up to an icy car, obviously it took a few moments to de-frost but that's the best part. Wrapping up in layers, being cosy, snuggling under the blankets with a hot chocolate. My favourite time of year. 

5. I have my first day of work booked off 
As I said previously I started a new job at the start of the month, and Friday is my first day off and my god I need it. I didn't realise how tiring it would be to be learning something new everyday. So here's to a three day week! 

6. Ibrahim is coming home this weekend! 
I am most excited for this in all honestly. Me and Ibrahim lived together for pretty much 3 and 1/2 years but last month he moved to London for an amazing job opportunity, and I moved to Bristol to save a little bit of money. So we really miss each other.

I don't have too much planned, I know we are planning to go in to Bristol at some point, but I really can't wait to just spend time with him. It's hard when your best friend isn't there everyday!

I'm sure there will be a lot of pictures on my Instagram.
