Surprises and…Surprises?

Good morning fellow bloggers!

I’m going to set the mood with a few things that have been going on in my life recently.

To begin, last week I was given some of the worst news I think I’ve ever heard in my life so far…One of my family members has been diagnosed with cancer. I have never really been faced with hearing this word before, but I can tell you it is one of the most cutting. For a few days I obviously had to let my emotions out and come to terms with what is actually happening and going to happen.

I felt like all hope was lost and I didn’t know how I was going to cope with this. However, I’ve gathered my thoughts and tried to keep calm so I can maintain a positive attitude. One of the easiest things to do in this situation is to shut yourself away, but it’s also one of the worst. Having people around to support you, people who are sometimes going through or have experienced the same thing are more than willing to help you through such a tough time.

Today my said family member is going in for an operation to hopefully improve their quality of life, extend their life and get them back on track again. Every inch of me is crossed for them and I remain positive, yet realistic.

Anyway, I had to let that out so now onto some good news…

Next week I have 7 days off work for my boyfriends 21st birthday which I am buzzing for. The best thing is that I’ve booked a surprise for him which he has no clue as to what it may be. He’s one of these people who is so easily pleased you could give him a lemon and he’d be thankful for it. To be honest, he may even pass out when he finds out what we’re doing.


If you want to know what it is too then you’ll just have to wait until April for me to talk about it…sorry not sorry.

Not only do I get a break, but it’s also pay day for me next week which takes us to the end of March already…where has 2018 gone already?! This week needs to fly by so I can take my mind off work and focus on eating and drinking nice things (within my diet).ย

Moral: When things in life don’t go to plan, the best thing to do is to take a step back and make a new plan!

    This is inspiring – I hope youโ€™re able to help this person and look after yourself at the same time. Always good to remember no matter what others are going through, your welfare is still important.
