Life Lately // February
Trying to spend more quality time with Jake. What with it having been his birthday, he'd booked a couple weeks off work before he lost his holidays come April. We've caught up with The Walking Dead and Person of Interest, watched some movies together and been on plenty walks with our little man.
Today (as you are reading this, not as I'm writing it up) we are actually at Edinburgh Zoo!! So exciting as I haven't been since I was a child and Jake has never been. I'm hoping to of taken lots of amazing photos and perhaps some video, to share with you all as well as put together a little edit just like the ones we did at Kielder and Scarborough Sealife Centre.
Why a certain disgusting book was ever made into a 'movie' and in turn why women are going so mental over it.
I made my feelings completely clear in this post that I wrote about it back in 2012, but it's just so mind blowing that 'ladies' have no shame in openly fawning over something that is really something that should be kept on tops shelves, shown on pay per view adult channels and not sold in supermarkets or shown in cinemas! Oh and that's just the 'adult content' aspect, we won't even get started on the obvious domestic abuse aspect...which doesn't seem to bother anyone that hasn't actually been subjected to such a terrible existence in a relationship, like myself.
I know my opinion is very rare and super unpopular - but I'm entitled to it nonetheless so leave me alone :)
Life in general I suppose haha! It took me a while to decide on what to say for this. I've been loving the past two months, but I've found my passion for positivity re-ignited and overall have just been enjoying the good moments lately.
I may still be a 'homemaker' as my career, whereas I'd prefer to of gotten one of the little cleaning jobs that have been applied for, meaning we had a better income...but we're managing fine.
My photo project is going really well this time around, despite having a broken auto focus and struggling light sensitivity issue with my camera...but I'm getting amazing feedback regardless.
All in all I am loving looking for the silver lining and enjoying what I can when I can.
Costochondritis! After having chest pains for a few days earlier in the month I got up the guts to get it checked out at the doctors with having heart problems in the family, and thankfully it was diagnosed as Costochondritis. It's nothing serious, just inflammation of the cartilage between my rib and sternum caused by infection from the bug I had at the beginning of the month, but heck is it super sore!!!! I can't take tablets, so have been relying on kiddies medicine but all I can take to help it is anti inflammatories anyway. The doctor said it'll take around 6-8 weeks to go away, the internet says you can have it for months - lets hope its soon because it hurts.
- My Mam got her 1st ever tattoo on the 31st of January!
- We've been on lots of beach visits while we can before the wave of holiday makes arrive.
- I held my first ever giveaway and Sara won!
- I got to catch up with my friend Rowan before she headed off on her adventure in Ecuador.
- Project 365 has been going well and I've been trying harder with my photos.
- Jake turned 27... :O
- I hit 400 Bloglovin' followers eventually (with the help of many of you including a lovely shout out on twitter from Dorkface) after bouncing between 395-400 for about a month! Thank you all for being a part of our family.
- Jake and I helped to rescue a baby pigeon that had been spray painted.
