Sooooo where do I begin with this year? It’s been one hell of a roller-coaster. Here are some of the things that 2019 threw at me:-
This was a major part of my year. I decided thatn if I am going to commit to buying a house in the near future (well hopefully near) I was going to have a blow out year and I booked whatever gig I fancied and I booked a few:-
The Radio 1 Big Weekend
I have loved every single one of them! Spending time with family and friends that I would never have done before this year.
In July me and the ex went away for a week in Lanzerote. It was my first time there and I doubt it will be my last however I would like to go to other places and visit new parts of the world.
It is such a lovely peaceful place and it turned out to be a great drunken holiday. As well as relaxing and exploring literally all of the island we found 2 amazing pubs, one was cheap but blew your head off with the measurements and the other had music bingo with cocktails, free shots and connect 4! I’m not even sorry at being 25 years old and sat in the pub getting very competitive at a kids game.
As well as all the amazing gigs I’ve been to this year and all the fun drunken nights, I have also had some special days out:-
A driving Experience
In August I started getting stomach/back pains, me being me I thought I had just done Ab day a little too hard but after a week I went to the doctors because it was starting to annoy me. I was in the doctors for just short of 2 hours. The doctor didn’t know what was wrong with me because I wasn’t having any symptoms for just one thing so she made me leave work straight away and had me booked onto a ward at the hospital.
I was papping myself, up until this point I had never been to hospital (well apart from visiting people), I was adamant that it was an over reaction and it was just a water infection. I was hoping that after a couple of tests I would be home feeling like an absolute idiot for all the fuss, but nooooooo it got to the night time and my bloods where still abnormal and because of the pain they would not let me go home and kept me in for a CT scan.
The first scan was inconclusive so they gave me another scan, this time with X-Ray fluid and told me to have a full bladder. A couple of hours later I was woken up to be told that my appendix was pressing on organs and was basically on the verge of popping. Not even 2 hours later I was prepped for surgery and told that out of the 3 options they were going to have to go for the last option which was a massive cut all the way down my stomach and a possible bowl reconstruction because of the sheer size of my appendix and all the toxins surrounding it. But waking up 4 hours later I was told that luckily 3 surgeons managed to keep the operation at keyhole and my bowl was fully intact!!
I tried to go to work literally the following week but that was a BIG mistake. I ended up being off for 2-3 weeks, only returning for half days and I ended up having to go back to the hospital because the pain was not easing. Luckily all the other tests and scan came back clear and even though the pain has never actually gone fully it is now barely noticeable and the 4 scars are not actually that bad.
New Years Eve last year I went on a date with someone and I thought that it was the first time in 2 years that I thought I had feelings for someone… And it lasted just over 8 months. A week before my birthday and 2 days after getting out of hospital (I’ll talk about that soon) which lets face it, that was such a d**k move.
But in all honesty, not long after that I started talking to someone else and we are 2 months going strong! He is the complete opposite to my 2 ex’s and I am absolutely smitten, I don’t think I have ever fallen for anyone this fast. He is a total gent and actually cares about me, like fully cares for me. I made sure I saw the New Year in with him because I am so excited to see what it has in stall for the both of us. I don’t care how many times I say this but I have never been in a relationship like this before…ever!
All in all I actually enjoyed 2019 but I have such a good feeling about 2020! Bring on the new experiences, day trip and drunken nights with some of the best people a girl could ask for.
