It’s time to grow up … ADULT REAL WORLD STYLE
So, I’ve been quiet the past few weeks… reason being I’M STILL GUTTED ABOUT CANANDA - kills me!! But also, I’ve been on holiday, in Italy - visiting the village where my mother comes from and staying at the house that I technically own - which was amazing btw - see below!!
HOWEVER It’s dawned on me, I’m no longer a student at university - a year has passed since then and now I’m beginning to get tired / OLD, I’m working FT not in the field I want to be in career wise, but it’s a nice steady earner to help me find my feet and I’m actually earning good money, feels like I’m just blowing it for the sake of it, when it should be going towards something ‘important’ …. It’s time to step up and start living in the real world and start planning my future. (“EEK”)
I’m approaching 3 years with my partner.. (how time flys) and he’s talking about mortgages and BUILDING OUR OWN HOUSE! (EEKx2!) I’ll have a ring on my finger and be popping out children before I know it !!!
SO IT’S TIME TO GROW UP!!!! and do you know what, I’m excited - not scared, definately think I’m ready… JUST where to go from now, what to do next.
Hmmm, inspiration times, serious saving and selling (aka clear out times needed for funds)
WATCH THIS SPACE.
It’s been on of those weeks at work where I come home feeling ready for bed straight away… Think I’m coming down with something which isn’t helping, urgent need of my holiday to Italia, 34days…. Only 34days…..
Summer Dreaming, not long till I visit Italy again…. YAY!!!
Low back maxi dress… Love
Home… and I can smelly a Traditional English Sunday Roast ‘a’cooking!!!.. :)
So I’m back from an amazing week with my man in Italy, showing him the village my family are from and adventuring around the south of country in our Fiat 500.
(Siteseeing in Rome)
Road Trip included… Roma and Napoli, Pompeii and Scavi Ruins/Vesuvius Vulcano, Cassino, Venafro, Sorrento/Almalfi and the Island of Capri, San Salvo, Termoli, Vasto and Aqualand, then Scauri and Gaeta..
Not to mention doing the tour of the village, Fontegreca, up the mountain to the lagoon and to the church grotto. I can’t believe how much we managed to do, 300 snaps sums it up nicely.. smile on my face looking back at them already!
(The Village, Fontegreca)
Not one day was it below 30 degree’s and everyone is so relaxed, no package deal holiday crap.. complete freedom and doing as the italians do! Hello afternoon naps and sunshine, right up my street, one day, one day! :) But now I’m back in England greeted by rain and actual english life - aka WORK…. Boo!!!
Although I have to say I appreciate english roads now, after the craziness of Italian drivers and roads - NO speed limits or RULES = Complete and utter madness, jake did so well to get us through the week alive. And the mosquito’s actually had a feast on me!! :( jake returned with only 2 bites, MY BODY HOWEVER COVERED! :( tights it is for graduation, hmph!!!
But, all in all jake did enjoy the holiday as much as I did and he loved the village, and the house - BONUS. So I guess that mean’s another trip on the cards soon enough… and if we can adventure round a country that doesn’t ‘speaka zee englishh’ then canada… we got this in the bag!!!
I do love him.
P.s. tinted and ready for Graduation later in the week. My life is only just beginning! :D
summer loving… summer chilling…
and it’s a dull rainy day in england.. this time tomorrow, be in the sky flying across europe on route to italia! :D yay.
I shall queue posts whilst I’m away, but if I don’t reply, you know why! Might have internet there, but I should hope I’ll be too busy to be sitting on the laptop!
Excited much.. yes I am! just watch this 4 and a half hour shift, drag completely!!! x
I’m actually growing up….
I know this sounds silly but, it’s going to feel odd this time going on holiday with the boy, just because it’s going alone with him in the family village in Italy..
It’s not just the ‘going away’ part with just the boyfriend I’m on about, been doing that since I was like 15! It’s more the point that it’s my childhood holiday home and I dunno, it’s kinda like visiting family too.. Fair enough I stayed for a whole summer one year, but I had my mother or “Nonna” (Grandma) there to bail me out and speak italian for me, when scared lol. Whereas this time, It’s just me and him.. and he only knows “ciao, parla inglese?” aka, “hello, do you speak english?” and if they say “no”.. it’s my turn to try and get us somewhere!! :(
Just know it’s going to feel ever so strange, but in a good way :D Remember the last time I laid in that bed in the house, I was in such a bad place, sad and confused.. used to stay up all night thinking about what I’d lost and how I’d changed (AKA University first year) Whereas this time, It’s the complete opposite, I will be there, safe, happy content with Jake. not only my boyfriend but my best friend :) So I am excited, don’t get me wrong.. very infact. Just I hope he likes it there and it doesn’t become to stressful as we’re actually having to do everything on our own 2feet, no package holiday malarky!
Finally grown up and taking responsibility out there.
After having dinner round my papa smurfs tonight, getting all the info and stuff about the house and where to go, it’s all coming back to me slowly, so I guess all those years of going as a child, relying on parents to do certain things, I did take notice of more things than I thought! :)
Shall just be an exciting 3weeks ahead; Italy, Graduation, Canada Payments and Starting my NEW JOBBY, not to mention training for the police and stuff! :D
Safe to say.. officially starting to feel like an ADULT! Eeep.
after having such a stressful morning..
I just keep thinking, 3 more sleeps and then I’ll be on holiday…
work hard play hard…
