My life is changing and I’m going to keep you updated: Chapter 10 recap and Chapter 11 aims :)

On the 9th of July 2020 I uploaded my Month 1 aims for my Changing my life series and now I’ve just finished Chapter 10 of my Changing My Life series and am very excited to get started on my Chapter 11 aims πŸ™‚ Chapter 10 has been really focused on seeing friends in a Covid friendly way and GYSTING and organising my space and also quite a bit of photography πŸ™‚

Favourite quote of the month: Live a life that would make you jealous πŸ™‚

This month restrictions in the UK have started to lift even more with restaurants re-opening inside which has been amazing because the weather hasn’t been the best throughout the month of May unfortunately 😦 Restaurants being open inside has meant that I have been able to meet up with a few friends that I haven’t seen in over a year in a Covid safe way which has been lovely and have also been able to carry on with some of the creative ways I have been interacting with friends and family who I can’t see in person for example- book clubs with one of my friends, and doing Yoga classes and then chatting about them with my brother πŸ™‚ Next month I will be going back to work after a year and a half off which is amazing and I’m very excited about that πŸ™‚

  • Cook 1 new thing per week and also bake something new this month :)- I have actually managed to do this and more this month which has been so so much fun πŸ™‚ I baked some chocolate cookies early in the month using a cookie packet that I got from Barghavi for Christmas so I wanted to use it before it was out of date πŸ™‚ I used the penguin cookie cutter that came with the packet and they came out so so cute! The first thing I made from Hello Fresh was Thai Style Beef which was delish πŸ™‚ I also made a Chicken and spinach curry and chicken noodles that week πŸ™‚ The next week I made a Bacon and Butternut Squash risotto which was amazing and also a chicken curry which was so nice! The next week I made a pork ragu followed by a Chickpea curry which was my least favourite of the curries I made this month πŸ™‚ The Thursday of that week was my Dads birthday so I made Hoisin style Beef which was AMAZING!! SO GOOD! In the last week of May I made a Chicken and Plum stir fry and a Mexican style beef Pasta bake πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
  • Continue working out regularly and do Yoga 5 times a week :)- I have been slacking slightly on my workouts this month and on my Yoga- I have done four runs this month and been on the I-FIT 5 times throughout the month but I would have liked to run a bit more so I’m going to try and get back into running next month πŸ™‚ I started off the month strong doing yoga 5 times a week but slowly but surely it dwindled off because my brother has been busy and I am not attempting to do a challenge at the moment but I’m going to try and get back into it next month πŸ™‚
  • Continue sorting out my bedroom and GYSTING :)- The first thing I did GYSTing wise was take two of my outfits to the dry cleaners to be altered- the jumpsuit needed a zip put in at the back and the buttons at the front sewn up and the dungarees needed taking up because I am small πŸ˜› The next thing I did was sort out my bedroom wall as I wanted to put up three Displates that I ordered which I am so so happy with and also add my small displate to the HP section of that wall πŸ™‚ They look AMAZING and I love them πŸ™‚ I then updated my CD collection because I had a few new ones which needed homes so I had a bit of a sort out πŸ™‚ The final part of my sort out was to sort out my bathroom drawer as it was an absolute mess!
  • See my friends and also celebrate my Dad’s birthday :)- I have been to see lots of friends this month! The first lot of friends I saw were Chiara and Poon who were my flatmates in my third year of university πŸ™‚ I hadn’t seen them since early 2020 so it was so so nice to see them and catch up πŸ™‚ I went for an afternoon tea in a garden centre for lunch with my Mum which was so nice πŸ™‚ On the 16th of May I went out with my friends Ria and Ellie which was so much fun and we went for a Roast dinner πŸ™‚ On the 20th of May its my Dads birthday so we celebrated with some presents, got Maya dressed up and chilled and had dinner with my brothers the next day which was lovely to get the whole family back together πŸ™‚ On the 21st I went out with my friend Hannah to London and we went to the Sky Gardens and then for lunch at Elan Cafe which is gorg and then on the 29th Hannah and I went to the Selfie factory, Hampstead heath and then to a Rose Festival in Covent Garden πŸ™‚ The next day I met up with my friend Dorothy for lunch in Wembley which was so nice and then on the last day of May I went to Selsey which is a beach where my Nan has a caravan for the day πŸ™‚ Throughout May I also met up with my two friend Birunda and Barghavi and did various things with them as well πŸ™‚
  • Write up a chapter of my Nans travel diary πŸ™‚ – I managed to write about my Great Grandmas adventures in Cyprus in January 1972 which sounded absolutely incredible πŸ™‚ The few places I managed to write about included Kyrenia, Salamis, Trikoma, Lefkosa and Famagusta πŸ™‚
  • Complete 4 work webinars, continue watching work and training videos and take Maya to puppy class and teach her a new trick :)- I have been working with Maya on her training which has been so much fun- she has gone back to puppy class this month which she has really enjoyed and then we also have been working on her weave which is so cool πŸ™‚ She has had lots of other dogs round this month as well for playdates which has been so much fun πŸ™‚ I have also watched lots of webinars, work videos and training videos πŸ™‚
  • Reach 1650 followers, do a photoshoot and also watch some camera videos :)- I did actually reach 1650 followers a few weeks ago which is absolutely AMAZING and I’m so grateful to everyone who reads my posts and follows me ❀ I didn’t get around to watching any photography videos however I did manage to do two photoshoots with my friend Hannah πŸ™‚ We did one day of photoshoots in the Sky Gardens and around that area and then the week after we went to the Selfie Factory and then Hampstead heath πŸ™‚

I have had such a lot of fun these last few months working through my goals and sorting my life out and am so ready to continue on this trajectory and get more goals done next month πŸ™‚
