Spring hasn't fully sprung yet. Not in the north, anyway! If it's not grey and wet, it's sunny with strong winds! On one of the odd day that the sun was shining, we headed up to Newcastle for a little day out. I absolutely love walking around in Newcastle when the weather is good, so we took the opportunity to spend the day. I spent far too much time at Fenwicks beauty department, and discovered lots of new shops, cafes, and a cupcake parlour! I really miss living in the city, but sadly, I'm not in the position to move there right now.
We also had the Easter holidays last month, of course, which I hope you all enjoyed! I love this time of year when there's several bank holidays to enjoy but as I've mentioned before, it is most likely that I'll end up working! (BORRRRING) I've actually still got lots of chocolate left from Easter so I'll be devouring that over the weekend. Did anyone else try the Cadbury's Creme Egg ice creams? They were sooo good! Possibly my new favourite thing about Easter!
I think I'm going to start keeping a journal or something to write down the things that I've been upto (another excuse to buy more stationery!) only because I'm trying to think of all the things that I've been doing, and been through over the past month and my mind has gone blank. I actually used to write a lot. Perhaps I need to put my phone down and pick up the pen and paper more! Even looking at my Instagram account, all that is coming to my mind is that day in Newcastle! I don't know but maybe my brain is trying to block things out for me! It's rare but on some days, I get so anxious that it makes me feel sick. It's usually that strange feeling that I get, for absolutely no apparent reason, when I think something bad is going to happen to myself or someone I know, and I get so upset. Even though nothing ever happens and everyone is safe and sound! I know that deep down, I'm a tough cookie! But I've spent a lot of the days in April just trying to relax and re-set. I read through old and new magazines, signed up to Netflix, bought lots of pamper goodies and ate lots of chocolates. Chocolate is always a good start...
Looking forward, this month I have a fun trip to London for Niki's birthday! In January, I won a trip where we'll be doing lots of cool things like afternoon tea, spa treatment, tickets to see Wicked, dinner at the Shard, manicure at WAH Nails and a helicopter ride. I've never been on a helicopter before, but I'm not the best when it comes to flying on a regular flight. I'm petrified but it's the first thing on the itinerary so at least I won't have to worry about it throughout the whole trip! I'm well scared but I'm going to force myself out of my comfort zone because it's a great opportunity and I'll be angry with myself if I let my anxiety get in the way! I MIGHT vlog my London trip but we'll see! I've never done one before so the end result might not be worth putting on the Internet but I definitely want to document the trip for myself seeing as my memory is so bad these days but it will be a super nice thing to look back on!
