A Life Update!

Hello there, it is only me, the missing owner of this very blog! I have no excuses for my absence and I'm sure you all wouldn't be interested in hearing any anyway, so I'll just get on with it! Since I last saw you, I have only gone and moved house and gotten a new job!

If I'm being completely honest with you, I can't say I was thrilled with moving a mere block away from our last place. I really liked that flat and really saw ourselves living there for a good few years to come still. But then the owner decided to sell the place and since we're not in a flat-buying position at the moment, we had to leave. We still wanted to be in the town centre for convenience reasons and we found a great two-bedroom place just a block away. Plus, upgrading from a one to a two bedroom meant my husband can now have his electric drum kit in the flat, which pleases him greatly and means he can start teaching drums again which pleases me greatly (cha-ching!). I've also been really enjoying decorating the place and piecing together some more accessories for the living room, which means your can expect more decor posts! And on the job front...

Some samples of my initial (terrible) work and then an actual good one which I made just yesterday!

I've started working as a barista! I started last April and am now a part of the Boston Tea Party team. It's a chain of 15 cafes spread mainly around the West of England. However, it is a family owned business, which I guess helps keep the independent vibe to each cafe, which I love! Working as a barista has always been in the back of my mind if I'm honest and it is everything I expected! It can be a lot of hard work, but meeting new people every day and making good coffee really is a pleasure! I've met some great people who have been really encouraging and really lovely about my wonky ferns and bubbly milk... Luckily it all does come with practice and my drinks are looking and tasting better every day! 

How has life been treating you lately?
