Dear Diary...

Let's catch up. 

I've been feeling slightly out of the blogging loop lately. Being uninspired to write and being really unsure what i can write about. I'm sure there's a million different things and subjects i could write all day about but right now, i have no idea. Here's hoping i get a little more creativeness flowing over the next few weeks. I keep seeing all of these amazing posts from amazing bloggers i know and right now i'm just sat in my pj's doing nothing and i'm finding it really difficult to be motivated to write. 

I've really fallen out of my flow of being organised. After writing in my planner almost religiously for the last few months, i've kind of forgotten about it recently. I'm really pushing myself to keep going through and have just updated my shifts for the next couple of weeks so here's hoping i remember to use it going forward!

I also found out this week that my brother and his girlfriend are expecting a baby! So i'm going to be an auntie! Something which i never thought i'd be saying, at least not yet in life! I'm super excited though - this means more trips back to Scunthorpe planned for the future and a hell of a lot of my money spent on cute baby outfits!

I did pass my 3rd university essay for this module despite it confusing the hell out of me. My tutor really understood that i was unhappy with myself for getting a lower score than before but it means a lot that he's confident i'll out do myself on the next one and be back to the scores i'm used too. It makes me so happy to be learning and working towards a degree. 

I also took my first steps towards driving lessons after putting it off for 8 years! Watch this space!

I accidentally haven't been to the gym in SO LONG. I'm super disappointed in myself. I stopped because of a swollen and bruised hip and because of work and university commitments, i didn't have time to go. Now i feel like because i haven't been i'll be rubbish when i go back and won't be able to get through a full class. I do have 6 days off work now so i think i'm going to slowly get myself back into it. 

On another note, i haven't been sleeping well lately. The walls of our flat are so thin and my neighbours living rooms surround the bedroom and so i can hear them talking and walking around. It's torture. I am not one of those people who can sleep through anything, it has to be deadly silent and pitch black for me to be able to sleep. If i can hear them, it makes me so angry and frustrated and i'm awake half the night. This is not doing me any favours. Here's hoping it will kickstart me into saving loads more for a house!

How are you feeling lately?

Let's Try To... Be Happy!

Hello June! Another month, another monthly challenge. Despite the weather being miserable outside recently i've decided there's only one thing i want to do this month....be happy. 

This will be my sixth challenge since i started my monthly challenges of this year - where has this year gone?! I'm still enjoying setting myself monthly challenges but i've got a bit out of step with blogging and life kind of got on top of me. 

So, let's try to be happy. 

Here are a few things that make me happy;

- Watching my favourite cheesy show (cue Hollyoaks & Made in Chelsea here...).
- Taking a really good Selfie.
- Dancing around the room when no ones home to my favourite music.
- Spending time with old friends and new.
- Having loads to blog about!
- Curling up on the sofa with a cup of tea.
-My PJ's. 

No matter what makes you happy, whether it's big or small, weird or completely normal. Just go for it, have fun and be happy. That's what my June is going to be all about!

How are you spending your June?

Valley Centertainment Blogger Night Out!

I was a chosen one. By this i mean, i was lucky enough to receive an invite to the Blogger Night Out event at Valley Centertainment in Sheffield. Now, i work just across the road from this wondrous place and i often frequent the restaurants and the cinema. I'm also particularly reasonable at bowling come to think of it. It's safe to say i was excited about this event!

After meeting for a quick coffee in Starbucks with some lovely fellow Sheffield bloggers, we headed over to Hollywood Bowl where we were treated to half an hour of bowling. We were given stickers for our efforts and i even managed to get a strike (not that i'm competitive, promise). 

After bowling we headed across to Laser Quest. I've never been to Laser Quest before but boy i'm definitely going to be returning. We were able to choose a name for ourselves and then we were taken into a room to be fitted with the harness and gun. After that we were given 20 minutes to run wild and shoot at each other. Being in the dark and having people chase me, i thought i'd definitely be crying in the corner but i really enjoyed it. One word of warning, wear trainers and thin clothing. It's super warm and i left a lot more sweaty than i was when i went in! I came 4th so it was all worth it!

After running up an appetite, we headed over to Chiquitos for a cocktail and some food. I ordered a frozen Strawberry Daiquiri because i'm classy like that and needed cooling down from laser quest. For food i ordered three dishes from the street food menu and had a little bowl of chorizo, a bowl of meatballs and a mini classic burrito! They were yummy but a little too spicy for my liking! 

Once we had eaten we headed for a short round of crazy golf. We split up into teams and had 20 minutes to complete as much of the course as we could. No hole in ones for me but i enjoyed competing against the other lovely bloggers! You can see a whole post dedicated to the crazy golf course at centertainment here!

After tiring ourselves out at crazy golf we headed to Frankie & Benny's to sample a handful of their desserts. I've never been happier. Another cocktail ordered - this time i went to a creamy number called P.S I love you and we all got stuck in. I personally loved the lemon cheesecake and the profiteroles! 

The end of the night was seeing a film at Cineworld Sheffield however, i wasn't able to stay for the showing some of the bloggers headed to watch Captain America to finish the night. I was definitely too tired and too full to continue the night so i went home, got into bed and slept until well into the next day. 

I really enjoyed the bloggers night out at centertainment. There's so much to do and a little bit of everything so everyone can be happy no matter what food you like or if you prefer bowling to laser quest! Here's hoping there are more nights like this!
