Monthly Wrap Up: October 2017


Me in October

October was another incredibly busy month. I can’t believe that last year I was struggling to come up with things to post about in this Life section, and now I barely get any down time.

I started off the month with the house move. It went really smoothly, and we’re now all settled in. To be honest, I wasn’t sure if living with my boyfriend would be this stress-free, but I’m actually loving it. I’ve joined the local gym, and while I haven’t been going a lot, I’m slowly starting to figure out some sort of schedule for it.

This past weekend I went to a Halloween party, which was tonnes of fun. I dressed up as a really half-arsed sparkly witch, and promptly ditched my hat as soon as I got there. The next day, I surprised Quill with a trip to the Royal Albert Hall to see Symphonic Star Wars, performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. It was pretty epic.

Looking Forward

November is another crazy month! Quill and I have our anniversary at the beginning of the month, and both of our birthdays later on. We’re going to a Bonfire Night with our friends to see a fireworks display. A bunch of friends and I are having a Harry Potter night, which is going to be epic. And towards the end of the month Tatum is coming to visit! I’m SO excited.

    Wow, glad the house move has gone so well. I think everyone is always nervous about moving in with someone but it’s usually nerves over nothing. Your dressing up for Halloween sounds much like mine, I make a vague attempt to be something and then ditch the part of the outfit which distinguishes me. I don’t tend to bother anymore.

    I hope you have a good month, enjoy the anniversary and Harry Potter night.

    Glad the move went well- moving is so stressful!! I’ve moved every few years or so for a while and it’s exhausting, I feel like I never really get to unpack. I’m glad you enjoyed Hate, Love, and Other Filters- it’s caught my attention recently and I’ve been hearing good things!
