Life Lately...

26 May 2017

Well hello there everyone! It's been a while! I hope you are enjoying this glorious weather we are having at the moment! As you can probably tell I have been away from the blogosphere for just over a month now! Life has just gotten on top of me and I haven't really been able to blog as much as I would have liked. However no return to the blog is complete without a little life update post so I thought I would update you all with what has been going on lately. As you can see from the photo above I have been busy socializing, reading and just taking a well deserved break from the blog. I have split this post into different categories of my life below so have a read and I hope you enjoy this post.

As some, if not most of you will no I work for British Airways and have done since Summer 2015. Back in October I was finally made permanent and couldn't be happier about it. I absolutely love my job despite the stresses that comes with it. It's something I've always wanted to do. Airports just fascinate me in a way I can't describe and I am super excited for the challenges that await me for the future.  Now that I am permanent I can explore different options in life and do other things on the side that I've always wanted to do such as write, travel whilst still knowing I have some sort of financial security if that makes any sense. I enjoy my job a lot however it is one of the main reasons why things on my blog are very slow at the moment as I am doing a lot of hours however I have a lot of leave for the rest of this month and June so things should hopefully pick up a little bit over those months. I'm back to working a lot of days in July and August so I'm not really sure how much time I'll have off. The good thing about my job is that I know exactly what days I have off and what days I'm working months in advance so it's good to plan things ahead.

What kind of life would I lead if I didn't reap in the benefits that come with working for an airline? Knowing that I can just hop on a plane to anywhere in the world is just one of the things I love. Obviously as an airline employee we get discounted flights. No contrary to popular believe they are not free. I've decided that 2017 will be the year I travel a lot more this year. I have just come back from visiting New York as most of you will know if you follow me on social media. I was there for four days and I can honestly say it's the first time I've been completely happy and fully enjoying life in a long time. I absolutely loved it there. I needed a break from the UK and even though it was only 4 days it gave me some much needed time to think and mull things over whilst being in an absolutely incredible city. I do have a post coming up soon so make sure that you stay tuned to my blog for that. Now that I have visited New York I do have a few more places lined up for the rest of the year. There are a few more places I would like to visit this year such as Barcelona, which I have already visited but years ago at college so I can't really remember it well, Rome, Santorini, and Paris. France is a place that holds so many memories to me. It's a place I've visited a lot as a child and throughout my teenage years as well and I definitely want to go back and visit it and with the time off I have coming up I hope I can go back soon.

Friends and Relationships 
This is a bit of a bitter sweet subject. The sweet part is my friends. I honestly have such amazing friends at work and at home and even though I don't get to see them as much as I would like anymore as we all have our separate lives I know that they are only a phone call or whats-app message away which is awesome. We have all gone out for dinner and drinks recently and it's been so nice to catch up on each others lives and just find out what each other has been up too. I've also met up with some of my friends who live further up the country in Scotland where we've been to see  Relationships on the other hand are my downfall. From being cheated on, to liking and flirting with a guy who has a girlfriend (found this out ages after we started speaking), I've had it all lately and it doesn't half annoy me especially when you see all your friends starting families, getting engaged, getting married etc. I am perfectly happy being single but I am the only one in my friendship circle at the moment who is single so it does get exhausting but nonetheless I am perfectly happy even if it can get boring.

So there's just a little update on my life at the moment. Nothing too exciting as you can see but this is a post I've wanted to do for a while. I thought I'd end with just saying I hope you are all okay. Obviously with recent events this week things have been very quiet and upsetting and I know a lot of people have taken a back seat with normal things this week and rightly so too. I just wanted to say to you all to stay safe, always be viligent, if you see anything suspicious always ALWAYS report it even if you think it may be nothing. It's always better to be safe then sorry. And finally, look after each other. Hold your loved ones even closer, don't hold grudges and just always be kind. I think these are the most important lessons to learn at the moment. I'll be back with a new post later on in the week but take care of yourselves and enjoy this glorious weather we are having at the moment.

What have you all been up too at the moment? 
Hugs and Kisses
