I used to do a little thing called a Weekly Round-up on my blog every Sunday, where I’d tell you what I’d been up to that week and basically let you snoop on my life. My life has become busier since then, which has meant that I don’t always have time to find photos and write up my highlights to share. Now I feel a bit out of touch with you all, so I’m going to bring it back. Hopefully it won’t be for one week only!

I have learned a lot about friendships over the years. When I moved away from home to study at uni, I began to realise the importance of friends that will always be there to help you through the harder times, as well as being there to enjoy the best bits. Friendships naturally come to an end, often allowing others to begin. One thing that I have noticed on social media over the last year is an increase in the number of people that say you should ‘cut people out’ if they ‘don’t deserve you’, and similar inspirational quotes. I completely agree with this. In fact, at times I may have gone too far.

Here is my advice to you.

I always knew that the first week back in the UK after being in Florida for two weeks would be tough. After actively looking forward to this holiday every day for at least the last year, it feels so weird that it’s over. Rather than a gentle slope back into the world of work, I came back to reality with a bang. Work was stressful and tough all week, the weather was freezing cold, and jet lag was making me constantly tired.

Life isn’t a fairytale any more!

To try and postpone the inevitable, I was a bit frivolous with my remaining days off and used one on Friday. I booked a train ticket to escape the city and spent a long weekend back home with my family instead. Weekends back home in the Midlands tend to involve lots of movies, lots of food and lots of cuddles with Poppy the Westie!

Here’s how it all unfolded.

Wow – it has been far too long since I last posted a weekly update. But rather than not having enough to say, I’ve actually had so much going on that I’ve barely had a free minute to blog. As much as I love being busy, I also really enjoy sharing these posts, so hopefully my life will calm down the tiniest bit. Though that isn’t looking likely!

I’ve just started looking for a new flat to move into from September. I cannot wait to get out of my rubbish house share and into a place that I genuinely like. If you’ve ever tried to move in London, you will know how stressful the housing market is here. It feels like there are hundreds of people looking to move everyday, so flats can go on and off the market in a matter of hours. Thankfully we have lots of time to get it sorted yet.

So what has been keeping me so busy?

As you know, I headed to Rome for a long weekend, and it completely knocked me out for the next week. Then I was off to an all-weekend work conference. Between that, vlog editing for the first time ever, and trying to train for my half marathon – which means a lot of sleepy early starts – it’s been a bit crazy.

Here are some of the highlights.
