A change is as good as a……..

So I think we are all in agreement now that Autumn is here. The shops are full of new hats and scarfs, and my favourite the fingerless, mitteny gloves. 

So how else to celebrate then by wrapping up and heading out 

The daily dog walk has quickly becoming my favourite thing, especially now my puppy is getting better at being of the lead. This means we can head of into the woods.  

    
    
 
Sometimes it just all comes together, cool weather, sun shining and playful puppy. 
Then on Saturday my most favourite of things…….. Firework display. The musical firework championships were on in Southport so we bundled into the car and down to the beach we go. 

The display was brilliant and even a firework in the shape of a heart, but I didn’t manage to catch it (sad face)

Oh but I did manage to wear my new hat, gloves and scarf
   
   
Happy Autumn 

When will I be a grown up?

I sometimes wonder if I’ll ever grow up. I mean I have a mortgage, a grown up job and a steady relationship etc but I don’t feel like a grown up.
I am always comparing myself to others and what they have done or doing or have. I know I shouldn’t but sometimes I can’t help it. I see people who have started families,  are fit and healthy, love their job and seem to have it all.

But I just don’t feel that way. I mean I change my hair all the time, I still havent found the ‘one’,  that elusive look that makes you think yes, this is me, this is what I look like.
I wonder sometimes if it’s more to do with the fact that I’m still trying to get to who I think ‘I am’

I still have my idea of a dream job, and this may shock you…. It isn’t working in an office for someone else.
I’d love to work in radio, own a bookshop, be a writer.
Maybe one maybe all 3, but no I work in a office in a bid to be a grown up.

I’m also at that awkward age, that mid 30’s bit where no clothing shop is aiming it’s clothes/ looks at you. To young for some stores, to old for others. Yes I know there is online shopping but I like to try thing on before paying for everything then sending it all back.

Does anyone else feel ignored by the high street?! No ok then

So here I sit at 34, 6:50 on a Thursday morning in my pyjamas,  a snoring pug on my knee working out if I can get away with just straightening my hair or if it needs washing. The whole time I’m sure the rest if the world is up, showered, cleansed,  toned, moisturised, make up on, dressed in their amazingly stylish work clothes, reading some amazingly sophisticated work of literature heading to their dream job.

Are you?

Does anyone really know you?

So I’ve decided to put a bit more effort into some thing in my life, and this little blog is one of them.

I started blogging in Oct 2014 but then didn’t write another post till January this year.
Mainly I realised I probably didn’t have much to say…..
I still don’t but I say it anyway because,  well why the heck not

So im revisiting my WHY and WHO questions.

My why, why, why? To be honest I don’t know. I have a friend so I consider quite ‘down with it’ ( god that make me sound ancient) who blogs. So I started reading some and following a few others on social media platforms and thought where are all the people like me?! Then I realised that there is only one me and maybe the world would like to know a little more……
That’s not entirely true I thought it would be a place to write about the things I like and things I’m thinking about that I don’t always want to have to justify to others ( come on Facebook own up you judge Judy you)

So the who, that’s slightly easier…..
I’m a northern (UK), 30…… something lady type person who is only just finding out who i am and what i like.

Things i like

1- working out/ trying to be healthy/ losing weight, now before you move on i don’t mean in a whooping, Lycra clad way, calorie obsessed way. I mean in a challenging myself changing my life kind of way, future posts will explain more stay with me on this one.

2 – i like clothes/ accessories, again stay with me on this one, I’ve spent 15 years dressing in black, baggy unflattering clothes and now i have colour and shape (not just round), as some of my OOTD pics on Instagram. And I love accessories,  mainly as I didn’t have any nice clothes for so long I learnt to love all the extras that go with

image

3 – I love beauty and make up products but never get round to starting any kind of regime, maybe I should start soon! 

4 – i will take photos of absolutely anything, recently completed a photography course to learn how to take better ones, again expect plenty of pics popping up every now and then, apologies!

5 – reading and watching films are ny favourite ways to relax.

6 – i love to travel, don’t do enough, need to do more. Past 12 months have seen trips to Brugge, Mexico, Italy,  Dublin and an upcoming trip to the Dominican Republic.

7 – I have a pug, a relatively new addition to my life and he is the best ( not at all biased I assure you)

image

8 – I love stationery, more a slight obsession

9 – I have a lot of different hobbies and a master of none.  But I will give anything a go

Hopefully I haven’t lost you and maybe some of you will hang around for more

Busy bank holiday days

So another long weekend has been and gone, my last one till Christmas (I am on holiday for our August one) and for a change I actually did something with it.
Usually I spend it trying to sort the house,  see past 5 years worth of bank holiday, but this was different. This one had good weather and actual real life plans.

For starters on Friday I decided to treat myself, something I have started to try and do a little more these days. I am usually running round trying to help other people I rarely help myself so once in a while I like to give myself a break
So pedicure and hair do were my first port of call

image      image

Then Saturday I took the puppy out for his first proper walk. I think it was an experience for us all! But I did manage to get him looking like a seasoned pro

imageimage

Sunday was a sophisticated affair, afternoon tea to celebrate (early) a friends birthday. It was utterly delightful

image

And Monday I took puppy out again to a horse show with a friend and her son. He was in his element being petted and fussed, puppy not son.
The hoses were on top form to, shires to yearlings and even the odd donkey or 2.
A great day out

Back to the grind today, oh well real life beckons

You know you’re a grown up when you admit you’re wrong

So last week I had to make a grown up decision. Nothing super major like a mortgage or getting married,  I’ve already done 1 1/2 of these things.
No it was another kind if grown up decision, to admit I was wrong.
So I’d finally managed to persuade my other half to get a puppy, don’t ask me how I’m still not sure!
And on a Friday vending a few weeks ago I went to see a gorgeous litter of Pug puppies, and fell in love with a little wrinkled bundle, paid my deposit and was looking forward to bringing him home.

Then the next day the breeder told me that all the pups were gone apart from 1, well for some reason my brain skipped ahead and said we’ll take him!

Jump ahead a few weeks and it was pup day, we collected them both and brought them home. First few days were manic as I’m sure you can imagine.
As the next 2 weeks passed it didn’t get easier and I had a flashof a future with 2 larger dogs constantly fighting and training issues etc.  At that point I knew what I had to do.
I had to admit I was wrong, that I couldn’t handle a situation, that I had made a mistake.
So I did, I told my OH that I was having second thoughts and I didn’t think keeping 2 was the best. 
Luckily we had a chance to return one, they were going back to breeders for their second injections.  I  told her that when I collected on Friday I was only going to ge returning with 1. Luckily she was very understanding.
So friday I collected my one puppy and brought him home.
It’s still hard work but at least we can concentrate on loving and training one with everything we have.
