October Thoughts

Autumn and October are my favourite times of the year. I love cosying up in my fave wooly jumpers, drinking pumpkin spiced latte’s (basic bitch I know), watching GBBO on Tuesday eve’s and taking long hot bubble baths.

This October, we’ve had my cousin Becca’s beautiful wedding, it’s my mum’s 60th on the 12th (tomorrow), Joe and I signed up to a donor egg agency for our second round of IVF and we’re waiting for a match, it’s my birthday on Halloween and this Saturday just gone, we snuggled up on the sofa and watched Bohemian Rhapsody (amazing film) and the first few episodes of The Umbrella Academy season three. I’ve also got my birthday brunch the weekend before my birthday with my close girl friends which should be lovely and going to Sketch on my actual birthday.

I also would really like to plan a last min holiday to Iceland for early January – but depends on the IVF situation. I just feel like I need to escape for a bit, before we go on this huge, not to mention, super expensive journey. It’ll be the start of a brand spanking new year and I’m another year older and I want to enter the year with a positive mind-set knowing I’ve ticked off one of my dream holidays.
I also would really like to go to Harry Potter Warner Bro’s studios again as I haven’t been in years and years and I used to live oh so very close to it. They now do afternoon tea there, so would like to do that.

I’ve already started getting plans for next year. Eurovision party/get-away in progress, my cousin Laura’s wedding, preparing for donor IVF process, Slamdunk (maybe), hopefully some mini breaks in the UK with or without Archie too. And well of course… planning for Iceland.

Being organised and planning for the future makes me feel a bit calm. Although it’s a bit like walking into the unknown sometimes… and sometimes I need to chill and take life as it’s comes.

I’m going to be 33 soon and I feel like I’ve achieved so much in the past 15 years or so, with my career, meeting Joe, getting married, getting Archie and buying our beautiful ‘forever’ home. I pretty much have everything I’ve ever wanted and I feel grateful for that, but the next stage in our life is to have a little family and it’s going to be a difficult and emotional journey to get there. We’ve waited 5-6 years for this to happen, so fingers crossed it happens for us.
