Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.


This week I'm celebrating:

- An excellent second week at my new job - the last couple of weeks have been training, but myself and all of the people who started with me go live next week! I work for a company that owns over 150 newspapers here in the UK, and I'll be working in their contact centre. Pretty scared to be going live, but they've trained us really well. Wish me luck! 

- I'm seeing my friends tomorrow, so that should be fun. It's excellent that I'm now free every weekend - we can see each other much more often!

This week I'm celebrating:

- I've had a fantastic first week at my new job; I already love it. We've learnt so much in a week it's unbelievable! I definitely did the right thing going for it. 

- This week's episode of Sherlock was amazing! One of my favourites so far from the whole series, I think! 

- I've been without all of my music for almost a year now, because itunes wasn't working on my old computer, but now that I've got a newer computer I've been able to finally update my phone and get all of my old music back! It was great today listening to some of my favourites again.

This week I'm celebrating:

- I had my first day at my new job yesterday, and it was fantastic! There's a three week induction before I start properly, which is good because there's a lot to learn. I can't wait to get stuck in! 

- I went to Lincoln to celebrate New Years with my friends, and we had a great night. We played games until about 4 in the morning. We were all tired on New Years Day! 

- There was a new episode of Sherlock on Sunday! I've been waiting for it since I became hooked on the series last year, and it didn't disappoint! I can't wait to see the rest of the season, even if it is only two episodes! 

What are you celebrating?

IWSG - January 2017


January is known as the month of new beginnings; new year, new resolutions, a fresh start. This is definitely true for me this year, as I start my new job tomorrow. I'm very excited about it for a multitude of reasons: regular hours, weekends off, no ridiculously early mornings, the actual work should be interesting, and it should give me more time.

What I lacked in my previous job was time to do the things I loved; I didn't get time to cook, I didn't get time to bake, and I certainly didn't get time to blog or write. This new job should change that.

So, this month I'm feeling optimistic. I haven't been around much lately, but that's all going to change! I'll be able to blog a lot more, and get back to the writing that I've been putting off for so long. In short, I'll be able to return to all of the things that I used to love doing, before work took over my life.

Celebrate the Small Things

Celebrate the Small Things is a weekly bloghop now hosted by Lexa Cain. The idea is to post anything you want to celebrate from the last week, no matter how small.


This week I'm celebrating: 

- I had a fantastic Christmas! The week leading up to it was pretty hectic; I had three Christmas cakes to decorate and all my presents to wrap all while I was working every night. I was glad when Christmas Day arrived just for the rest! Here are the cakes I made:

My cake

My Mum's cake

My Dad's cake

I'm pretty proud of them, considering I didn't have as much time as I'd have liked to decorate them! 

- I had my last night at work last night! I start my new job next Thursday, and I can't wait! 

- I'm visiting friends for New Year, which I'm really looking forward to.

Celebrate the Small Things

This week I'm celebrating:

- It's my sister's birthday today, and I stayed over at hers on Wednesday night to celebrate, since she has to work today. We made a chocolate cake, which she insisted on decorating with a smiley face, then I took her shopping and bought her two pairs of boots. Here's the cake:


- I started watching something called Izombie on netflix last week, and I've finished it already; it's so good! I really wasn't expecting very much from it, I don't know if it was the name or the fact that it's yet another programme about zombies, but I was pleasantly surprised. I'd recommend it to anyone, it's a fantastic show and I can't wait for the next season in April! 

- I've got most of my Christmas shopping done now; just a couple more bits to get, then I can get started on the wrapping.

This week I'm celebrating:

- I put two of my Christmas trees up this week (still got one more to do) so the house is looking super christmassy, which I love! This is my absolute favourite time of year. Here's my main Christmas tree in the living room, with a few presents already waiting underneath it!



 - It's the Christmas market in Beverley on Sunday, so I'm looking forward to going and getting even more in the Christmas spirit!
