It has been far too long since I last posted on here, but I am back and ready to get sharing again!
Since I last posted back in October, we have entered two lockdowns, celebrated Halloween, bonfire night, Christmas, rung in the New Year and celebrated my birthday. But today’s post I am going to write a life update about what has happened in the last four months.
Halloween for me is one of my favourite times of the year, the air gets cooler, nights get darker and it just has a really nice feel about this time of year. This year, as there was still restrictions in place, it was kept low key where me and my friends went to a local pumpkin patch called Cattows Farm in Leicestershire. If you haven’t been already you should as it has the biggest selection of pumpkins in the country! So after looking through 100’s of pumpkins I picked my five ready to carve. This years editions weren’t my best but I am still rather chuffed with what I created, have a look for yourselves below:
Next up we have my absolute favourite time of the year Christmas! This has always been the best time of the year for me, it’s just full of happiness and it’s spent with your favourite people, and this year although was different to previous years was still just as nice. Our Christmas decorations saw an upgrade, we watched more christmas films than usual as we were home more, ate lots of wonderful food, played so many games and just spent time as a family. Here are some of highlights from the crimbo period:
New Year much like Christmas was low key and we just celebrated as a family. We played board games and a gross game of bean boozled, twisted with beer pong which was awful but so fun! We rung in the New Year together and hoped for a much more positive 2021. Although as predicted on the 8th January we was plunged into a third lockdown, which we are still riding out with the hope in March we will have a little more freedom back.
This meant I spent my birthday in lockdown, which only seemed fair as everyone else I know celebrated theirs in lockdown already. Also you know what, although I missed all of my friends, it was a great birthday. We played games on the Nintendo Switch, had a takeaway and just chilled which was really nice.
Since then, not a lot has happened, I have been working from home so apart from my walks and the odd shop for essential items I have stayed home. Last weekend got exciting as we got so much snow…more than I had ever seen. So of course the 27-year old I am, I made a giant snowman as tall as me (not hard as I am only just over 5ft). My greatest achievement of 2021 so far. Enjoy the snowy, magical pictures below:
I really hope you enjoyed reading my small life update as much as I did writing it. Although times are tough we will all make it through this together!
