Life Lately: 1 Month Married

To be honest it has been quite an easy start to married life for us. We spent the first two weeks in Mexico, then came home and got straight back into working life. Unfortunately, me & ross have been sick for the last week with a horrible cold/flu/chest virus thing that i’m sure we picked up on the plane. It’s always the same when you go away and everyone blames the change in weather, but I honestly think it’s the confined space and lack of fresh air for hours that passes on all the germs of the day. First week back at work and I had to have time off because I was unwell… Awkward or what?!?! Anyone else HATE taking sick days? We even missed our first home date night as Mr & Mrs at our favourite restaurant! On the marriage side of things, no dramatic changes. I feel very settled in my new role as a wife and I feel like it’s definitely in my blood to be a family women. It helps …

Spa at Royalton Riviera Cancun

Spa days have always been one of my favourite things to do, so when we seen the deal for the Royalton Spa Cancun, we thought ‘your only on honeymoon once’. It wasn’t cheap, it worked out about £100 per person but it’s something your never going to experience again. It starts off with you choosing which oil you would like for your massage. We both opted for Orange, but the lavender and eucalyptus both spelt equally beautiful. You were then allocated your own therapist who lead you into separate changing areas. You are given a robe, flip flops and water if needed. I was then given a beautiful body scrub to apply before entering the steam room. I was left there for about 5 minutes before being told to have a cold shower. You are then taken into a sauna for a further five minutes with a cold compress on your head. To finish the introduction you take a 8 minute dip in the jacuzzi before being lead into the main spa to meet your …

Father & Daughter Day Out

My dad has always been my best friend. We have always been stuck together like glue, so when I moved out after the engagement it hit us both hard. It took a long time to get used to it but like anything in life, you adapt. With the wedding a month away those emotions of separation are resurfacing. It’s all in the mind, but when you’re getting married you feel like your life before is coming to an end. Childhood has officially gone. Our schedules between now and the big day are mental, so we decided that we would have one last day out together before I say I do (You would honestly think I was leaving forever after reading that). We had decided to do something before the wedding but just didn’t know when, until I got a lovely unexpected Friday off from work. I’ve been working so much over time recently I had enough for a full day off without using holidays (Thank goodness because Ive used them all for the honeymoon lol!). …

5 Post Surgery Life Lessons

For the past 8+ days I have been recovering from a laparoscopy and I’m still not fit for work yet. Basically, it’s a surgical procedure that allows the surgeon to view your abdomen, womb, cervix, ovaries etc without making large incisions. If you read my previous blog post about Endometriosis you will already have a rough idea about whats been going on. If not, I had the procedure to basically check that my cervix and ovaries where working properly. The symptoms I have point in the direction of Endometriosis, but the surgery found a 4cm cyst on my right ovary. Some people really cringe out when you talk about periods and everything related but I never understand why. If we didn’t have them then we wouldn’t be able to provide you guys with cute babies. So, deal with it. Period (such a comedian!). Unfortunately, my cyst hasn’t been removed yet and I need to go back to my consultant (which means I probably need to do all this again!). Since having 2 holes in my stomach I …
