It's only 6 months until Chistmas! Yayyy I can't wait! Seriously we are already half way through the year complete bloody craziness if you ask me!
The beginning of June was the launch of volunteers week and I was asked by the NCVO to do a short talk about why I volunteer. The launch breakfast was in the BT Tower in London and I had to talk in front of my biggest audience yet of around 80 people. The view from the tower was amazing and it was a great opportunity to meet other volunteers and network with different charities.
On June 3rd we celebrated little Esme's 4th Birthday. I can't believe how grown up she is and am so proud of the little girl she is growing up to be. Her birthday party was an Ariel themed party and my mum helped with the decorating, she's such a creative woman when it comes to decorating.
You know what i'm like..constantly taking photos of the little ones so I had to include this little montage of photos. I'm so lucky to have these 3 beautiful little people in my life.
A family walk in the beautiful park on a Sunny afternoon. I think that being couped up in a hospital room for so long has made me want to spend as much of my time as possible outside exploring and finding some hidden, beautiful spots in Plymouth to enjoy a walk, especially when the sun in shining.
Nights out are really rare for me nowadays but this month I went out and celebrated with my extended family, my bestie Kate and her Sisters and bumped into one of my nurses who looked after me (far left) We indulged in lots of prosecco and I suffered the consequences the following morning with a very bad headache.
Me and Mum had one of the nicest afternoons last week when we went on a Mother, Daughter date day. First, we went to the cinema to watch Me Before You..and both cried A LOT! It is a brilliant film, Emilia Clarke (Daenerys Targaryen from Game Of Thrones) plays such an amazing role. I read the book before watching the film, and like all films, a lot of the detail from the book is missed out but it's definitely worth the watch. We ended our date by going to Nando's and stuffing our faces, I do love a Nando's. My nan on the other hand detests it and says 'it's just expensive chicken and chips' haha.
It was my Bestie, Kate's 23rd Birthday on 30th June and I created this little collage of photos taken over these past 11 years. As a best friend we have been through lots together and I wouldn't be where I am today without her! A great friendship is very rare to find and I have realised by being poorly who my truest of friend are, Kate is by far the best. I love her lots!
Happy 4th of July everyone! I hope you've had a great month!
