So far this year, I've moved house, passed my driving test, bought a car, visited new places, got some more tattoos and have done plenty of other things that could easily take up a blog if I were to list them. While there isn't entirely more of the same planned for the second half of the year, there is definitely a lot to look forward to, be nervous about and generally cram into each month.
Luckily, I've kind of gotten used to the madness so if things fall short of having to pack my life up, find a new house and move all in the space of four weeks, I'll be very happy indeed. As it is, I'm looking forward to the next few months, even if they are sure to make the end of the year come at far too fast for my liking.
We have a very important date
We have to wait until the start of August, but this is still quicker than we were expecting and any date is a good date as far as I'm concerned. While I know there are a lot more tests to do and more appointments to come in the future, we are now at the starting line which is really exciting.
As things currently stand, my blood tests are different from this time last year. While I still have PCOS, it is not as severe as it was then so there is a currently a better chance of non-invasive treatment being successful. I'm mostly just keeping my fingers crossed and trying not to get too stressed out about it, even if get my husband to the GP for his first round of tests is like wrangling a crocodile.
They've put a lot of care and attention into the big day so I'm really excited to see how everything turns out - although I know it will be amazing. It also means I have a hen party to attend this month, which should also be a lot of fun, although I can't say what we're doing just yet as it's all a surprise!
I'm going to use the day as an opportunity to prove to the husband that Chester isn't that far away so we can go more regularly - especially as I want to go to the zoo - so hopefully it won't be so long in between visits with people next time. Of course, he doesn't need to do the driving so has no real right to moan about distance.
A Cornish anniversary
We will also be in Cornwall for our wedding anniversary, which is doubly nice as the day would have been my grandad's birthday and he was Cornish born and bred. Although we will celebrate three years of marriage with family and friends while we're in that neck of the woods, I've also planned a day out with the just the husband to a place that is really close to both our hearts. It may not be a super fancy anniversary celebration, but we're both happy with a pasty and an ice cream by the seaside, so anything more is just icing on the cake.
On top of our anniversary, I'm also planning some trips to various places - with the beach definitely being one of them on numerous occasions - so am on the look out for good ideas. It may drive the husband mad that I like to be so organised, but he married me so he can't really complain after knowing what I'm like.
This is also as far as I'm planning for now, as I have no way of knowing what will pop up between now and then. Plus there's the fact that on top off this, I have parties, blogger events, trips to London for work, meals out and all sorts of other things that will take up time and that I'll then need to blog about. Needless to say, there should be a lot to read in the coming months!
