Monthly Review | February 2016
1st Mar 2016
February was a crazy month; one I will no doubt remember for a long time to come. I’ve been really busy and productive meaning that the already short month has flown by for me and I’m finding it hard to believe March is here already.
In my January monthly review I talked about how Tyrone and I had decided to move out of our flat, out of the city centre, and into a house. A month ago it was just an idea. Now, it’s a reality.
At the beginning of the month we found a house, made an application on it and got accepted. Last weekend we moved in. It’s been a complete whirlwind but I am so glad we are here and I’m already feeling so much happier.
Take it from me, if you are unhappy with something in your life and you have the opportunity to change it, then do it, even if it seems terrifying. Life is too short and it’s not worth being unhappy when there is something you can do about it.
On the blog
I have definitely been less active on the blog and on social media recently, and it’s all to do with the move. In February I spent my evenings packing and organising the move rather than blogging. However, this means I have loads of ideas for blog posts which I hope to write and share with you throughout the month of March.
365 Instagram Challenge
I wasn’t enjoying the 365 Instagram challenge back in January. I was finding it a chore and I felt like my life wasn’t interesting enough to be sharing on Instagram.
I feel like things started to pick up in February, and when I look back at the photos I took I realise that February was quite a productive month for me.
I’ve had to pay out a lot of money this month thanks to the move, but I was determined to keep up with my savings in order to reach my £5,000 goal. So again, I saved £396 bringing the total to £792.
I’m excited for March. We can start to build a home out of this house and make it a really special place to live. I’m looking forward to getting out in the garden, and maybe we will have some sunshine to enjoy. I’m planning on booking some driving lessons this month too because having a drive way is a massive incentive for me to pass my test.
It’s Liverpool Comic Con this month too. I’ve decided not to cosplay because 1) I haven’t had time to sort out an outfit with moving and 2) I just want to go and enjoy my first comic con without stressing about what I look like. I’m too much of a perfectionist!
How was February for you? What are your plans for March?
