Five Good Things in May

May favourites

1. I started the month watching my friend get married in the Isle of Man which was such a nice day! It did rain but that didn't stop us having a good time and the wedding was perfect, I loved all the little details including the message in a bottle table markers and the pastel colour scheme. It was really nice to just get away for a few days and leave the country as I haven't been on a plane for years! It's definitely inspired me to plan another little trip away and maybe even brave travelling solo too.

2. This month I started my new job and so far i'm really enjoying it. I did manage to get ill near the start which wasn't great but hopefully now i'm immune to whatever it was! It's so nice to be in a job that is interesting and there's always something going on and I don't dread Monday mornings quite as much! I've still got lots to learn but after three weeks I feel like i'm settling in and making a difference which is why I applied for the job.

3. One of the biggest things i've done this month has been learning to drive on the motorway. I briefly mentioned this in my driving test tips post, but I threw myself in at the deep end by getting a job that involves a 30 mile commute on a motorway into a city at rush hour. I think i've proved to myself that I can be a confident driver because now I know where I'm going and which lanes to be in its just become a part of my routine. I actually find it easier than my old commute on country roads with lots of roundabouts and after all this time I finally feel like I can drive anywhere!

4. This month I finished eight months of laser hair removal at Sk:n. I can honestly say that it's changed my life and made it so much easier and I have no regrets about getting it done! The course of treatment was long and it is quite expensive but with a little bit of patience the results have been really positive, the staff are all lovely and overall I couldn't recommend it enough!

5. ♫ Three songs i've been loving in May: Gorgon City - Doubts, The Aces - Stuck and Kygo - Not Alone



  1. Glad the new job is going well! Having laser hair removal is on my list - I dread to think how much I've spent on waxing in the last 10 years! x

  2. Congratulations on your new job! Driving is all about practice, when you do it frequently without getting scared then things get easier :)
