Yep...we're all about the bass...

Yet another busy period at work!  Not fun! I find office politics so not fun it's unbelievable.  I just cannot bring myself to get tangled up in the web of that kind of rubbish, so I have found myself just sticking my headphones in and listening to music at work and keeping myself to myself when contentious subjects are discussed.  That is except when I'm wandering around singing to myself to the catchiest song there is out there at the minute...which obviously got my bestie at work singing too...


...I cannot help but love this song...I know...I hate me too!! haha

I feel like I got into a little bit of a "work rut" the last few months but I feel that although things are stupidly busy that I am getting to a point where I am accepting of my crazy caseload and the work that I do.  My work recently has been recognised by the powers that be and that makes me happy. I mean don't get me wrong I don't need constant praise (my boss would happily tell people that I am my own person and I dance to the beat of my own drum at work haha) but I am pretty content.  I don't know if a co-worker telling me that they're leaving has made me a little happy (don't judge me, she is one of those that thinks she is better than everyone else haha) or whether I am moving in a direction that I want to work wise...who knows...but I'm embracing it regardless.

There has been one thing that has bothered me the last month and that's the news about my  friends Mum.  Although I have always adored and appreciated my Mama, I have been more bothered (not the best word but not sure what one I want to use) about my relationship with her.  The only thing I can attribute that to is the news of my friend's Mum.  I cannot imagine my life at the age I'm at right now and having to come to terms with the fact that in the next twelve months I would lose my Mum.  I cannot even comprehend it and I find myself having more conversations with my wonderful Mum about things.  My Mum is devastated that my friend and her family are going through what they are going through and in whatever way we can we are being supportive.

Just some of my wonderful and amazing family...








...I'm so lucky to have amazing friends and family.

This week has been an important week for me.  I am starting my journey to find out if I am coeliac. I've had my blood take this week and I'm impressed with the Nurse that did it because there is no bruise and you can barely see where she took the blood from.  I'm hoping that the tests come back negative but it's something I need to find out.  I feel there is something underlying to my constantly feeling tired issue.  I find myself sleeping well at the minute and no matter how little or much sleep I have I am always tired in the morning.  So later this week will be when I find out if all is ok or if I need further investigation.  I'm hoping I'm not because I love pasta, rice and noodles too much to give them up haha.

I am not a robot...

It's been more than a month since I last wrote a blog post and life has had some incredible highs and some seriously shitty lows.

Earlier this month I was devastated to find out from one of my best friends that her Mum had been diagnosed with cancer and that it was terminal due to the cancer returning and spreading throughout her body.  This sent complete shock waves throughout our friendship group and we are all still struggling to come to terms with the news...not only for ourselves but for our friend.  We  have no idea what she is going through we can only just assume what she is thinking, feeling and all we can do is be there for her throughout this awful time. Her family are struggling to come to terms with things at the moment and it's my job along with all our friends to make my friend smile or feel as ok as she can during this horrible time.

In order to do that we are pretty much letting our friend decide what she wants to do.. How we are feeling isn't important right now, the most important thing is that she is ok and she feels supported...and she decided she wanted to go on a night out last night...so her wish was our command.

It was really nice being able to catch up with each other.  We don't always get the opportunity to see each other as much as we like but when we do get together it's like we have never been apart...that to us...is the sign of true friendship.

This is us seven years ago...

So sweet and innocent

This was us last night...

What a difference 7 years makes...but still so sweet and innocent right? haha
It was so nice to be able to spend the night having fun, laughing, dancing, drinking and just being us.




My favourite picture of the night of course has to be this one...

Juuuust a little drunk!!

Work has also taken over as usual.  I have to say at work I have been super sonic busy and there are days when I want to sing this to my Manager...


...My Manager just seems to want more and more at the minute and I think he needs to be reminded that I'm not a robot and that I can only work so many hours in the day.  Instead of complaining though, I just keep doing my job and hope that it quietens down for me.

Today marks the start of another day of fun with my friends and to shake off any hangover I danced and sang to this song in  the shower haha...


...what can I say...I'm loving Ed Sheeran so much right now...is he single? haha
