So it’s been over a year since I moved into my own place after living at home for 26 years! I was never one of these people that was ‘ashamed’ about living at home even though I was in my twenties; it made sense for me. I was lucky to get on really well with my parents, I had my own space and freedom, and the financial outgoings were minimal. Living at home whilst working full time allowed me to save a chunk of my wages every month to put towards a deposit, but I still didn’t think I’d ever…

I didn’t do my monthly ‘Life in Instagram‘ post in November as I didn’t have too much going on. But then in December I had so much going on, as I’m sure everyone did because it was Christmas! I know it was a couple of weeks ago now so everyone is so over it, but I just wanted to share some photos from last month which are all Christmas related. I like looking back on these types of posts and hopefully you guys enjoy being nosey and seeing what I got up to too! Don’t forget to follow me on…

I haven’t really had much of a chance to blog about Christmas yet!

Unfortunately I have to go back to work on the 27th December, but I am also celebrating as in the new year I will be starting my NEW JOB! More about that coming soon… As I’ve now completed my…

November was such a busy month for me with so much going on over the weekends and after work.  But December has been a little bit more chilled luckily which has meant that I’ve been fully embracing the festive period, and I spent 1st December getting our home ready for Christmas! I thought it was nice that 1st December fell on a Saturday this year as it meant we could spend the weekend together getting all Christmassy!

Last month I was invited to The Black Horse in Great Linford, Milton Keynes to take an exclusive first look at their newly refurbished restaurant and stunning new interior. The Black Horse (probably one of the most well known pubs in MK) is a premium pub, bar, and restaurant located in an idyllic waterside setting next to the Grand Union Canal. The location is perfect for a refreshing drink, a quick bite to eat, or a delicious Sunday roast. They offer a great selection of pub food with a twist, plus a fantastic range of wines and drinks. I visited The Black…
