So I must start this post by apologising for the length of time since my last post... 7 months!!
There have been several reasons why I have been quiet for so long:
In July I started my new job, which is at an accountants in Kendal. I was working at my previous firm in Ulverston for 5 years and decided that it was time for a change. It was very nerve wracking, deciding to start a new job that was an hours commute from my house and not knowing anyone there, but it was the best decision I have made in years! I am extremely happy working for my new firm and the commute is definitely worth it.
I got married!
In November I tied the knot to my wonderful husband Jamie after 2 years of being engaged and 7 years in total of being together. The few months before the wedding were incredibly busy, with making my own evening invitations with, organising my hen do and the big day itself. But I had great support from my closest friends Katie and Ellie, who were also my bridesmaids.
I moved house
After a year of working on our house (scraping walls, ripping out fire places, re plastering the entire house to name a few jobs) we finally moved in the day after our wedding. This was not for religious reasons, it was purely timing of getting finished, but I would definitely recommend moving in the day after your wedding! It was like a completely new chapter in our lives and it was so exciting to start married life in a new house. We had been together for 7 years by the time we got married, so there wasn't any nasty surprises, in fact I was actually pleasantly surprised! We are closer and happier than ever.
So that is why I have been so quiet and in the next few days I will get back up to scratch with posting my developments with living with Arthritis.... there's a lot to tell!
