I’m aware I haven’t been overly present on here recently, I took a short break that lasted longer than I first expected. But that’s okay, we all needs breaks every now and then and I’m feeling rather inspired to be back and writing again.
I thought I would update you on some things that have been going on in my life recently:
I FAILED MY DRIVING TEST:
I had my first practical driving test on the 1st may and well, it didn’t go to plan, you have seen my little rant over on Instagram about how the examiner has a sat nav that fell off so I missed a temporary speed sign and went too fast, which was hella annoying but nevertheless a mistake on my behalf.
However here’s what I learned from that:
– Go slow when exiting a roundabout and check for signs in inconvenient places
– Don’t go straight ahead from the right-hand lane, it doesn’t always work
– 40 minutes is a lot shorter than it sounds
– DON’T PANIC, take time to breathe and think what you’re doing over and it’ll all be okay.
I’VE RE-BOOKED MY DRIVING TEST FOR 31ST MAY
I’m keeping my fingers crossed that its second time lucky for me.
Now I know what to expect I should be slightly more relaxed which should help prevent silly mistakes such as trying to pull away before I’ve taken the handbrake off.
MY LITTLE DAISY HAD AN OPERATION
If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me post stories of my little terrier, Daisy, she looks like a cross between a tiny little fox and a fluff ball.
Sadly, since we got her 7 years ago she’s been blind in one of her eyes. This was due to an accident she had when she was still in the dog shelter care; another dog tried to pick her up and her eye popped out and after the vets put it back in she lost her sight out of that one (that’s the story we got told by the dog shelter anyway).
Recently, it started to look like her bad eye was causing her pain and being rather uncomfortable for her so we discussed the best options with the vets and decided it would benefit her to have that eye removed. I can’t even put into words how worried about her I was when she went in for the operation, as you’ve got to be told everything that could possibly go wrong and that she might not make it.
GOOD NEWS – my little one made a full recovery and now seems to be happier than ever.
I’VE BEEN READING A LOT MORE (one of my twenty-eighteen goals I’m keeping up with)
One of the main ways I’ve been relaxing at the moment is by getting stuck into a good old book, the one I’m currently reading is ‘All The Bright Places’ by ‘Jennifer Niven’. I’ve heard that there is supposed to be a movie coming out of this later this year/ early twenty nineteen which I really hope is true!
From reading more books I’ve found myself being inspired to write more, but not because I feel expected too but because I genuinely want too and it’s silly to put off doing something that makes you feel great.
I would love if you could recommend me some more books to read, my current to read list consists of; Turtles all the way down, Holding back the universe and Love, Simon (because I need to read the book before I see the movie)
