How to… Avoid the Gym

If you’ve read some of my previous posts, you may be aware I was lucky enough to win a free month at a rather nice gym in Doncaster a couple of weeks ago as well as a full body massage. It really is a rather lovely gym, it’s also being updated at the moment so it’s…

Varakei

So for those of you have been waiting with baited breath…. It’s time for my next little attempt at getting a life! There hasn’t been much going on lately so nothing to get too excited about! I did however book myself another solo adventure over New Year which I am crazily excited about! It seems…

Facebook winners do exist

I thought I’d write this post just to weigh in on a doubt that may be starting to niggle in people’s minds. I know we’ve all done it. All of us with social media accounts at least! How tempting are those “like and share” competitions and as time goes on, we enter more and more…

Get a Life- Part Two

So as you re-join me in my attempt at a blog, I’m quaking in my (shiny new) boots as I attempt to get my contraband skittles into the Sheffield Lyceum ready to watch Blood Brothers. Funnily enough it seems I was worrying needlessly; my ticket was checked and I strolled into the theatre in search…

Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons

So this week’s blogisode (not sure if that’s a thing but I’m going to make it one!) is about a trip to see my ultimate legend. The One. The Only. Frankie Valli (and the Four Seasons)!!! Although the Four Seasons weren’t the original quartet, they were still pretty spectacular and the main man was still…

Canadian adventure

This may be the first time some of you have heard of this (as if) but I've just been on another of my little adventures! This time I was headed to Canada for a little weekend break before setting sail on a Celebrity Cruise bound for Alaska. The main reason I was headed out there?…

Hen do happenings!

This week it is time for the much anticipated hen do of my lovely friend Jade. We were all set for a girly weekend to Leeds for food and bubbles. Before I start, I do think it's worth pointing out how amazing Jade's bridesmaids were, I'm sure it can't be easy organising a hen do…

I’ve finally done it!

So that's it! I made my big announcement what feels like forever ago! But this week the time finally came to leave my job. Still not entirely sure how I feel about the whole thing though, it feels a little too soon and raw to think clearly, so I'll keep you posted on that one!…

Eye spy with my little eye…

This week's blogisode sees me on a train on route to Sheffield with some of my colleagues for a little theatre trip. It's kind of our last big outing as a group before I leave my job (three more days left! Can't believe it has come so soon) so we were quite keen to enjoy…

My Birthday- Part Two

So following my last blog post, Katie and I are up in our hotel rooms, sipping on champagne cocktails as we get ready for the evening ahead. It was quite the comedy act as we popped our robes back on at the spa and attempted to make it through the hotel and all the way…

Do you believe?

It’s been a relatively quiet week here at “Get a Life Headquarters” this week, so it got me to thinking about some of my “getting a life” opportunities that I haven’t had chance to blog yet! One experience I’d quite like to repeat is when my Grandma invited me to the local for an evening…

Quiet times

So one of the main reasons that I started this blog is because I felt I needed a life. I work really hard and I also have a chronic illness. I’m sure many of you guys work really hard and we can all agree it is exhausting! Having a chronic illness and working so hard…

Challenge Accepted…

So its bank holiday Monday and I’m at Doncaster train station waiting for a train to Newcastle with the bestie. It may not surprise you to find out (especially knowing I was responsible for booking) that we nearly didn’t make it to Newcastle… Don’t get me wrong, I booked the hotel (quite a nice one…
