Things haven't been 'good' for a while which is why I haven't really blogged, let a lone a good things blog post. Things finally seem to be looking up though and I have actually started having a social life again. In between the business of events, seeing friends and starting a new Freelance role, I have done some pretty GOOD things
1. Brunch with friends out of London
Gary and I have been spending a bit more time out of London, either with family or friends. It gives us time to escape the business that is the Big Smoke and actually relax. When we spend time with our friends, it mostly revolves around food, which makes me so happy. This time we went to Brunch in a tiny little place called Odiham. A blog post will follow but in the mean time, here's a snapshot of the delicious food we stuffed our faces with.
2. Blogging Mojo is back
Blogging has always been a way for me to chill out really, as well as meet people and develop my career skills (social media, yo). It's been put on the back burner, again, and how I have missed it.
3. Goosebumps Alive
I was scared absolutely out of my skin last week when Milly invited me to join her at Goosebumps Alive plus backstage experience with Yelp London. Obviously, a comedy filled blog post will follow but just imagine... me, a person scared of the dark, scared of everything and just generally a wuss... holding Milly's hand so I didn't get attacked by monsters.
4. I started a new job
Well, it's another freelance role but is just as good. I'm being presented with a bunch of new challenges and an immense work load... it's certainly keeping my brain ticking! The people are lovely and, so far, I genuinely enjoy going in in the mornings. #weird.
5. Bagarang meet-up
Something happened that has never happened before. A year a go Bangarang started and has grown so it's now 11 people strong. As hard as we try, we have never managed to get all of us in one room. These girls are the best bunch of friends I have and the fact that we managed to get all of together (with Charlie on FaceTime.. totally counts) was an absolute dream/miracle.
Emma made us all the food, we drank all the wine, we laughed, we cried, we sang Mariah Carey and more... Typically, it was just THE. BEST. NIGHT. I love you girls.

Seriously, these girls are the best.
All in all, it was a pretty good week and I'm so glad I'm feeling more like myself again.
