I was really surprised when I looked at my calendar this week and realised that it was the end of February. This month has has flown by, and I really don’t feel like I’ve achieved much. Still, there’s always next month.

For me, February was all about the Winter Olympics for me. I’ve always enjoyed watching winter sports, particularly curling and skeleton. So I definitely made the most of the flexibility that comes with working from home and spent a lot of time on the sofa with my laptop, watching the Olympics. Well, it’s only on every 4 years!

Overall, January has been a pretty good month for me. I mean, the last couple of days have been stressful (house problems!) but up until then it was great.

My word for this year is “happiness” and I can honestly say with confidence that I have felt the happiest I have felt in a very long time.

I’ve spent a lot of time looking after myself and focusing on how I can incorporate more positivity into my life. I’ve been working on projects that make me excited and that genuinely inspire me, and I’ve been bringing ideas to life that have been floating around in my head for years.

Happy 2018 everyone!

As I’ve mentioned before, 2017 was a strange year for me, and it ended in a rather unexpected way.

I handed my notice in and quit my job.

It all happened rather quick to be honest. I made my decision on the Monday and I handed my notice in on the Tuesday. And just over a week later I finished my final day.

Although my final decision to quit was made rather swiftly, I’d actually been considering it for quite some time. I’m talking the last 6 months to a year.
