OH HAI AUTUMN.
I feel like September has basically run up behind me, tapped me on the shoulder and ran away giggling. Y’know what I mean? Sneaky, sneaky September. I can’t believe tomorrow is October. TOMORROW. OCTOBER.
Before we know it it’ll be November and I’ll be turning 27. Twenty-seven. Sheesh.
Anyway, shall we move on? Here’s this month’s fabby things!
starting: my new job! Yep, this month marked the beginning of a whole new adventure working for a wonderful, wonderful assistance dogs charity that partners specially trained dogs with people that have physical disabilities. For the majority of the month, it’s been all about inductions – meeting lovely new people and learning about all the different departments. It has honestly been so interesting and so, so rewarding already.
meeting: Dexter. If you don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you won’t have seen the photos I’ve been posting of my parents new dog, Dexter. He’s a gorgeous Goldendoodle with bundles of character. He’s super sensitive to things at the moment, in particular loud noises (apparently the Golden Retriever trait according to people at work!), but he’s so sweet.
doing: more youtube videos. OK, shameless plug time. Have you subscribed to my channel yet? I’ve been creating Blog Talk videos (tips about blogging) as well as vlogs. Go check it out and let me know what you think or what else you’d like to see.
obsessing over: Tesco Finest salted caramel profiteroles. OMG GUYS THEY ARE SO GOOD. They are like gold dust at the moment as I can only get them from the Tesco’s near Liam’s mums house which is over an hour’s drive away so I better get used to being without them :(.
getting: excited for Autumn! Even though the beginning of Autumn hit me with a cold (damn you immune system!), I do love this time of year. Come at me hot chocolates and chunky knits and scarves.
wearing: boots, boots and more boots. Even though the autumnal weather has taken it’s time to come to fruition, I’ve been all about the boots recently. I love wearing boots, as they add a teensy bit of height without making me cry with pain.
reading: the walking dead. omgomgomg the newest volume of TWD came out this month and it was incredible. It makes me want to read the single issues but also I’m not sure I could handle reading the story in such short bursts, even if they are more regular than the trade paperback. The character of Negan features heavily, and anyone who doesn’t read the comics but watches the show will know Negan as the badass we were introduced to at the end of the last season. ALSO THE NEW SEASON STARTS NEXT MONTH YAY.
learning: to enjoy driving. Since starting my new job, my commute is a fair bit longer (around 40-45 mins compared to my previous 10 mins!). I thought this would be a struggle to get used to, but it’s actually made me appreciate driving more. Mostly because the drive avoids pretty much all traffic and I get stunning views of the South Downs e’ryday.
What’s made your September super duper?
