I haven’t written a personal post for a while now so I thought I’d sit down and tell you all what’s been happening with me lately. I’m currently lying on the sofa under a massive throw which is the SOFTEST throw ever and it’s from Primark, go and get yourself one, you won’t regret it (you’re welcome).
I’m pretty sure I’ve got the flu, if it’s not the flu I don’t know what it is because I have ALL the symptoms.. I’ve felt ill since Friday morning and had a high temperature, ugh. All I’ve done is lie in bed or the sofa because every time I get up I feel like I’m going to faint so that’s great. I wish I had a normal immune system because this is the 2nd time in 3 weeks I’ve had to take time off work because of illness and I hate having to call in and let them down, I feel so bad about it but I know I can’t go in ill. It just sucks but I’m dosing myself up with all the medicine and hopefully I’ll be better soon anyway I don’t want to bore you with how ill I am right now because you get a lot of moaning from me on my twitter account..
If you didn’t know I finally got a job after my cancer treatment and I’ve been working in retail for about 5 months now but it honestly seems like I’ve been there so much longer. I’m enjoying it although it’s not what I want to do for the rest of my life. I mean I love the people I work with, they are all really lovely and I think that’s one of the most important things is to get on well with your co-workers.
My ultimate dream job would be in a cancer charity and I know I’m an ambassador for Blood Cancer UK which I absolutely LOVE doing. It’s so great to be involved with the blood cancer community and It’s amazing to know I’m helping on projects to help support patients but one day I’d love to be working full time at a cancer organisation. Someday I hope I can make that jump. I was also invited by Blood Cancer UK to help at a couple of events not too long ago but again I was too ill to go, I was so sad I couldn’t go and help, I know there will be lots more events to help out at but I was just so annoyed at myself even though I couldn’t help being sick.
Last week I had booked a week off from work as well as my mom and sister because my birthday was on the 17th October so we all just decided to book the week off and try to be productive haha. Most of the week we spent shopping to be honest so wasn’t exactly productive but I had such a lovely day for my Birthday as we decided to go to Manchester for the day and I was super excited although my mom wasn’t too happy with the £18 parking charge.. YES £18.
We spent most of the day shopping and I actually only brought 2 bath bombs from Lush and some tee tree stuff from The Body Shop, I literally didn’t see much else around the shops which I was surprised with to be honest. We did go and have a little explore and saw the cutest little details ready for Halloween also seeing all the I ♥️ MCR signs throughout the city was so emotional. I’ve only been to Manchester twice but it’s becoming one of my favourite cities and I can’t wait to go back.
On the Wednesday I had a check up at the hospital and I woke up feeling physically sick. The anxiety before any kind of check up is horrible and a part of me will forever fear it. After having 5 files of blood taken I went to see my consultant she normally just asks how I’m feeling and wether I’ve had any symptoms etc and tells me my blood results which were all good (YAY) then I have a physical check up where she feels for lumps in my neck and under my armpits, then she feels my tummy and listens to my breathing all that seemed fine.
It was honestly the BEST birthday present I could have asked for. 2 years & 4 months in REMISSION. I’m getting closer to that magical 5 year mark and I couldn’t be happier with how far I’ve come since finishing treatment.
Oh, update on the gym.. I haven’t been for months. Ooopppssss. I kinda just wanted to get into my job but then I always kept putting off going because I was super tired after my shift but now I’ve got used to everything I am determinded to get back soon as I need to start training for a 10K which I’m planning to do next year. I’ll tell you more about this when I actually sign up.
On the blog front I’m pretty happy with everything at the moment although I feel a little out of the blogging community but that’s probably just my fault as I really need to make more of an effort with commenting and interacting which I’m so bad at right now so please leave me your latest posts below as I would love to have a read.
I’m also REALLY trying to up my content and photography game. I kinda like to keep my photo’s simple and white but then I see other bloggers with amazing photo’s and I’m like HOW. I know I shouldn’t be comparing myself to others but it’s hard not to. I also signed up to Influenster a couple of months ago and although I haven’t received a VoxBox yet I’m actually really enjoying going onto the app and interacting and writing reviews on there. I was shortlisted for a box about a month back but never got it. I was a little disappointed, not going to lie. I also did have a little think about doing Blogmas but I didn’t want to put that sort of stress on myself so I will be posting in December but not every day.
I don’t have much else going on in my life right now, it’s pretty boring haha. I hope you guys are well and enjoyed reading this little life update.
