Welcome to the family, Bailey

What a week it has been! My house has been completely turned upside down, everything has been chewed on, peed on & pooped on! Oh, the joys of little Bailey. I wouldn’t have it any other way and she’s 100% part of the family now.  Bailey is a 9 week old F2 apricot Cavapoo with a full personality and a mischievous streak. We looked into several types of dogs but we had agreed on a Cavapoo because we loved Cockapoos but wanted something a little smaller for our house. They are also hypoallergenic which is great as Ross has asthma and no one likes dog hairs all over the house!  We travelled to Newcastle to get her last Saturday after only meeting her once before. She hasn’t disappointed us at all. I was really worried about how she would react in the car but she slept the full way in her little bed. When we got her into the house she settled straight away, showing off and playing with her new toys. It wasn’t until …

Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

There’s never been a truer saying. I decided that it was time for me to live by that and I wanted you to know. My blogs all about being real, and this is me showing you who I am. I am now following my dreams and venturing out on my own. What am I? A lone solider, an entrapenuer or just a bloody idiot. Either way, it’s a done deal. I never thought I would be saying that, never mind a few months after getting married. I feel so free. I create my own well being and the sky is the limit on what I do. It was a big step for me to take. I had a lot of things to take into consideration like, my home & being able to pay the bills. As well as making sure I’m not missing out on life by not earning some sort of income. Thankfully, I had a lot of support for doing this. It’s so much easier to see a plan coming together when you have someone to …

Life Lately: November 2018

Evening All! I just thought I would pop on another post about what I have been getting unto this month. November is always a big month for me because it’s my birthday month! Another year older and I am sure this is going to be the busiest year to date. You can read about my birthday weekend over on my other post and read about our time at Boclair House. The rest of my birthday was just about chilling out and spending time with the family. November was also the month we got to meet our newest addition to the Nelson Family. Christmas came early for me when Ross surprised me with a puppy and I have been full of excitement since. She is currently based in Sunderland so we took the time out to travel down and meet her. Nowadays, you have to be super careful when buying a puppy so there was no way we were waiting until the day we took her home. Bailey was everything we could have hoped for and …

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 …
