I have So much to be happy for at the moment. My life has been a whirlwind, and here’s how…
As I mentioned in my previous post, things have been a bit hectic over the last few months. I have had a lot of amazing things happen, which makes me a very lucky lady.
Number One: I went to Iceland and got engaged!
In January my FIANCE and I went to Iceland for a trip of a lifetime. We’d both never been before and it was the most amazing holiday. If you haven’t ever been to Iceland, I couldn’t recommend it more. It’s so beautiful and the people there are so lovely. We went to the Blue Lagoon which was such a refreshing experience. For those who have never heard of it, it’s a silica based hot spring which does wonders for the skin as well as the soul.
While we were there we saw a brief display from the Northern Lights and went on a golden circle tour which took us to Geyser, Gullfoss and Thingvellir National Park (where he popped the question). It was all so beautiful, it was really snowing so everything was covered, magic!
Number Two: I moved.
We used to live in a city center flat, which was wonderful, but I am so pleased to now be living in a house only a short walk from vast fields. I’ve traded in my rather ridiculously large kitchen for a more normal size one, which is a shame. But what I lack in kitchen space I gain by getting a garden and my own sewing/craft room. I can’t wait for the summer so I can start plodding around my garden, growing vegetables and trying to attract some wildlife. I will also be taking my yoga outside for a happier and healthier experience.
Number Three: I started Volunteering.
In May of last year I began volunteering for St. John Ambulance. It’s been such an incredible journey so far. Everyone I work with is so friendly and it really feels like a family. I have a jam packed year with lots of great events ahead of me, so I can’t wait to continue learning and helping people.
Number Four: I Got the Music in Me.
My final piece of news is that I’ve begun leaning two instruments. I have always loved music and as a child I was given the chance to learn the flute and the drums, but unfortunately it didn’t go very far. I’m now taking lessons on the drums and keyboard which I’m loving. It’s going to take me a long time to get to playing anything even remotely good, but I really am loving pushing myself to do something I’ve always wanted to do.
So… there we have it, lots of new things happening in my life. It’s going to be a hectic year! I can’t wait to see what happens, it’s going to be super busy but hopefully really fun and rewarding at the same time.
