Happy New Year!!

HELLO YOU LOVELY PEOPLE!

Just a quick blog post to wish you all a very happy and drunken New Year’s Eve!

This year I have decided to stay in and roll the New Year in with my mum whilst watching TV and drinking wine. Over the past few NYE’s most of them have been bigged up and ended up as a rubbish night out; plus clubs are too expensive, I hate large crowds, the drinks are expensive and probably watered down and the taxi’s cost double. So…I am in favour of a cheap night in for once!!

Anyway, if you are going out, have a great time and have a drink for me! Leave 2012 in the past and look forward to what you can achieve in 2013. Make it the best year you can.

I’m not making any resolutions for next year as I never keep them, but as long as I just keep up my weight loss and applying for jobs I know I can do and will make me happy, then it’s all I can ask for. Also, I have been kept on in NEXT so that’s a great present to me, yet books is my passion, so one day I WILL make this a career. Next year? Maybe, who knows what will happen.

2012 for me has had its ups and down, and right now, I am as happy as I can be. I hope 2013 can carry on being as great as the last couple of months for me and I hope I can write how amazing 2013 has been this time next year.

See you on the other side 🙂

 

Update on everything.

I’m been a bit rubbish with this blog recently as I haven t had much news to share, but I’m going to give you a little update on what Ive been up to this past month.

Weight Loss

I have now lost 20 pounds! YAY! As i mentioned in my last weight loss post, I feel really great about myself. I do have another 2/3 more stone to lose, although I don’t really need to loose that much, it would be nice to see if i can get to a weight that i haven’t been since i was a child hahah. But I’ve dropped a dress size which is great and I’m feeling really good about myself at the moment. It’s amazing what staying focused and losing weight gradually can do to ones self-esteem and confidence. Many friends have told me I’ve gained confidence, and I have. Not much, granted, but I’m getting there. Over Xmas I am still sticking to WW and trying not to deter too far from it as I don’t want to go back to weigh after Xmas and be shown that i have put on. So here’s to being good this year for once.

Book update

I’ve written about 80 pages so far but recently I haven’t written anything. I still plan to write, and as I’ve said, i have the story, but I’m just not feeling like writing at the moment. I’m sure after the New Year my muse will come back, but right now, I don’t have the motivation to sit down and write when I have books to read and review and I have an Xmas job to go to. I WILL write this book, as its something i have been wanting to do for years, but right now…its not happening.

Book Reviews

On a happier note, as you can see from the sidebar, I have set up my own Book Review Blog – if you would so kindly take a look. As someone who LOVES books, it was inevitable that this would be a career path to go down. Right now, I have many an author who are emailing me and asking me to review their books in return for an honest review – hence being too busy to write. Albeit, some books I do not review as they are not my kind of books, but I have become friends with one author who sends me books in return for reviews and I know i can count on her to boost my viewings as she can count on me to write honest reviews and get more people to read her books. I am also a reviewer for Female First, although my reviews aren’t up yet, I do hope they will be up soon. So in the future i would love to have a career in Publishing. It would be a dream come true to work with something that i love!

Xmas Job

I have an Xmas job! I am a Sales Adviser in Next and so far, i am loving it there. I hope I’m kept on but if I’m not, I now have retail experience. I really thought my interview went bad but an hour later they rang me up telling me I got the job. I am now till, shoe and changing room trained, have more confidence in talking and helping costumers and I’m over my fear of the massive stockroom! Albeit it is an Xmas job and i have a few weeks left before knowing if I’m kept on or not, but it’s gotten me out of the house and given me something to do for a few hours a week, which is great as being cooped up in the house was starting to drive me crazy.

That is everything so far in my life. Hopefully I will update this blog more, but right now, I’m focusing on my book reviewing site, so click on the link next to this blog, and come and join me in my other world. You may even find a book you like the look of!

Have a great Xmas and New Years everyone!

Until next time.
