I really wanted to create a lovely new blog series where I can chat to you guys about great moments that have happened in my life lately. Instead of making it weekly and putting pressure on myself, I decided to do ‘5 Moments Of The Month’! Let me know if you like this, I can’t wait to look back on it in the future and remember the wonderful moments.
- A DAY IN KNARESBOROUGH
I haven’t been to Knaresborough since I was a teenager on a school trip, and Dan had never been. Seeing as it was only 30 minutes away from us, we decided to take a trip one hazy Saturday morning, and we loved it. We had an explore all along the waterside and the little town, and went up to see the castle too. Standing at the castle edge and looking out over the town and river was so incredible, and it was a moment for me when I remember thinking how incredible this world is.
2. SUPRISE AROMATHERAPY MASSAGE
We have a local lady who does great affordable full body massages, and my lovely mum booked me one for a Friday evening as a treat. It was so relaxing I even fell asleep twice, and just what I needed for a bit of ‘me’ time. Linda’s room is always very calming with gorgeous crystals on the windowsill, so it’s always a pleasure to go.
3. SISTER DAY OUT
This past weekend, my sister came over from London and we spent the day going to a local wedding fair, shopping around and having lunch out. It was so nice to spend time together, as always. There were a lot of laughs, as is usual with us two. Definitely a day to remember!
4. A BIG WORK STEP FOR ME
October brought a big step in my Accounting business, in meeting a brand new client before in a place I’ve never been (anxious people here might understand me more) and I got the job! I won’t lie and say it wasn’t nerve-wracking, but I felt so proud of myself after. It was such a big step for me and my confidence, that I know I won’t feel as nervous when I get another new client.
5. SLOW WEEKENDS
I’ve got a post coming up about this topic in a few weeks so I won’t harp on about it too much, but I feel like October has been the month where I’ve really appreciated having no set plans on a weekend, and not rushing around trying to fill the days up with different activities. It’s been so nice and refreshing to wake up and have the whole day ahead of us with no routine or have to’s and I’m really enjoying going at a slower pace and appreciating the slower moments on our weekends.
How’s October been for you? A good month?
