This year is an exciting year for me, I'm getting married in August to my gorgeous boyfriend, and so I expect the blog will be full of wedding-related ideas etc. I'm also a new member of a local WI for young women in the area (we're called 'The Scone Roses') and so I hope to write lots about what we get up to at our meetings and what crafts I'm doing. I have a huge love for food, so I'll no doubt blog endlessly about what I'm eating/cooking or thinking about eating. And expect to see all things vintage/beautiful/cath kidston/laura ashley among my posts as well. Plus lots of dreaming about the future....wedding, honeymoon, and hopefully one day soon...babies!
I always say I was born in the wrong era, and should be a 50's housewife. I'm 25, live in Bedford but come from Surrey originally, I have recently bought my first house with my gorgeous boyfriend, and am so happy and settled here now. I work as a Drama Specialist at a Primary school for children with severe special needs, I love my work, its hard but extremely rewarding. And my days are filled with beautiful smiles of the beautiful children. I'm a lucky lady!
I have a gorgeous British Shorthair kitten called Pickle who is 7 months old, and spoilt rotten. I take an extremely silly amount of photographs of her, she's amazing! :-)
The main and most important 'life journey' I'm on at the moment is weight-loss, its my biggest goal that I'm desperate to achieve this year, mainly for my general health and well-being, so that I can be a fit and healthy mum when we start trying for a baby, but also for my wedding day - I want to feel happy, confident and at my best on the big day! :-) I've lost 2 and a half stone since Sept 2011, and am hoping to lose another 2 stone by the wedding in August. I'm using the iPhone App called MyFitnessPal and Nike+GPS to help support my weightloss journey - I'm using a combination of calorie counting and lots and lots of walking, and so far its working :-)
I hope this blog will be interesting and inspirational for lots of women, and I'm sure it will help me to organise my thoughts, and share all the things I love! :-)
Loads of love
