After spending two days in Edinburgh, Day One and Day Two, Monday was our last full day in Edinburgh. We had booked The Real Mary Kings Close Tour. This had been recommended to me from my hairdresser who went to Edinburgh I think last winter. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from the tour, I had looked at it online and thought it looked pretty cool to do.
It’s coming up to my parents 25th wedding anniversary and it’s got me thinking about them. They are my favourite people in the entire world and I love spending time with them. So in sort of honour of their wedding anniversary I thought I would write up 6 ways I aspire to be like my parents.
Following on from my Day One in Edinburgh, Sunday was set to be a beautiful day. The night before we decided to watch the sunrise at Calton Hill. For us this was under 15 minutes away from out hotel. Plus Sunday was set to be the better day for seeing the sunrise. So with an alarm set for 4am we got up and got ready to see the sunrise.
On Saturday July 7th I set off to the capital city of Scotland, Edinburgh. I had never been that far up North, nor had I ever been to Scotland. As we live quite a way down south, it would take us around 6 hours to get to Edinburgh. We decided to get the 6.19am train, that way we arrived in Edinburgh around 12.30pm and we had the rest of the afternoon to explore our new home for the next few days.
Do you ever get the feeling where you feel like the person you were even 12 months ago wasn’t you? The person you were 12 months ago seems like a distant far off version of yourself, a skin that has been shed long ago.
This year has gone by so quickly it’s unreal. It really doesn’t feel like May. The past 5 months have been crazy, I seem to have been drifting from one assessment to the next without really stopping to breathe. So I thought I would do a little roundup as to where I have been, what I have been up to and where I’d like t be heading.
As a winter baby usually I get pretty cold weather around my birthday, and on a few occasions even snow! This year I decided to go to venture out of the usual places I have been to in recent years and go to Cardiff. I went there last summer with my Mum after not going there for years. So decided to go back for my birthday, so my Mum, Dad and I hopped onto the train and off into the sunshine (literally).
There are a lot of things that happen every day. Things that can be positive as well as things that can be negative. There are those things that we take for granted, things we don’t realise we’ll miss until they don’t happen for what ever reason. And so today I wanted to make myself a positive list of 10 things that make me happy. Because happiness is key.
12 months can bring a lot of change, both good and bad. A lot of things can happen, some will be forgotten and others will be cherished memories. I for one would never have envisaged myself where I am now. If someone would have told me in January half the things I’d do in the next 12 months I’d have thought they were mad.
Hi everyone! Hope you’re all enjoying the run up to Christmas! It actually snowed where I live, which it hasn’t done in years! Today I wanted to go over a few things that I do to help me when I’m feeling anxious. Every now and then I do a post on how I’m feeling/dealing with my mental health. Which I usually write as I am feeling anxious. So I thought I would write a post on how I actually deal with feeling anxious and not just those thoughts during the time of feeling it.
