I don’t know how I feel that we’re in March now. Being in March means I’M ENTERING MY LAST YEAR OF BEING A MISS.
No, you’re freaking out a little.
Although, when I take The Geek’s name I’ll no longer have to say my surname and spell it out to people on the phone. 26 years of constantly having to spell it gets really tiring. And my poor Dad and brother have had to do it for all their lives and beyond.
I will tell you something. I have so much stuff planned in March it’s unreal, and it’s all really exciting stuff. We’re off to Crufts at the beginning of the month, we get to taste our wedding food, we’re finally going to see Harry Potter & The Cursed Child(!!!!). We’re celebrating my best friends engagement and, finally, we’re celebrating out seven year anniversary. I think that’s the 5 happy things for March written!
1. THE GEEK’S NEW JOB
Honestly, probably the thing that’s made me the happiest all year. The Geek started a new job in the middle of February and it’s so nice to see him happy again. His old job left him defeated, tired and becoming the worst version of himself. It was both of our aims of the 2017 to get a job that made us both happy and he got his within the first 2 months of 2017. It’s longer hours, it’s further away but, he’s doing something that makes him happy and something that he has a passion in. And me? Well, I’ve got my boyfriend back.
2. VISITS FROM FRIENDS
Our friends from Kent came to visit us in February for a night away. Due to the 200 mile difference, life and working hours we don’t get to see them very often so I always treasure the time we do spend together. We had a board games night, went out for brunch and lunch stops and watched The Lion King. It was a lovely weekend of no pressures to do anything except catch up and enjoy each other’s company.
3. BARDOLINO BIRMINGHAM – MAKE YOUR OWN PIZZA EVENT
At the beginning of the month I was invited to create my own pizza at Bardolino in Birmingham as part of National Pizza Day. I did a pretty good job if I do say so myself. The pizza tasted delicious and it was great to catch up with local bloggers. You can read exactly what happened here
I finally finished it! My lovely blogging friend, Ms Mistry, bought me this when I first broke my arm but I struggled to read it due to the pain I was in. I restarted it at the beginning of the month and I can honestly say it is a lot better than Gone Girl. It’s extremely dark and I didn’t see the ending coming and I’m usually good at guessing ending of things. It tells the story of Libby Day, who’s family were supposedly murdered by her Satan obsessed older brother when she was 7 years old. It looks at the American justice system, poverty and the American class system. If you’re looking for a super dark and gripping read, I would recommend this one!
5. IMPROVING DOG PHOTOGRAPHY
Now my arm is getting stronger, I’ve been able to go out with my camera and take some snaps of Rufus. Lucky for me, Megan from The Cotswold Spaniels posted this post on tips to improve your dog photography.I headed to my parents back garden one day and decided to put her tips to good use and I came out with some great shots. Sometimes, just having a few pointers really helps! They are also our most liked photographs on Rufus’ instagram!
