Apologies and Love

It's been far too long since my last post, I apologise. So let me catch you up on what I have been doing, which is the main reason for my absence. Just under a month ago I started full time work after finishing my university degree at the end of last year. It's very exciting, but exhausting at the same time (shift work is not easy). I find myself either working or sleeping, and any free time I do have is spent with my boyfriend, family or friends. The fact that my work requires me to wear a uniform I have also been uninspired with outfits, preferring to jump into my pyjamas as soon as I get home. Tragic I know. 

Now that I am more settled into my job though, I am going to make an effort to spend more time on my blog and the two will just have to learn to live harmoniously. 

I leave you with some belated Valentine's Day images which makes me feel so lucky to have such a wonderful man in my life...
This is what I saw when I walked into my room after work on Valentine's... Such a lovely surprise. And a creative alternative to the usual bouquet of flowers I thought :)
Although a lot of people may not like to celebrate Valentine's Day and believe it is a money-making scam, I like to think that it doesn't have to be an expensive extravaganza. A hand picked bunch of flowers or a home cooked meal with candles, or perhaps a picnic at a favourite destination is such a lovely way to celebrate in my opinion. And sometimes, in the hustle and bustle of life, I think we forget to appreciate the people we love, so it's nice to have a day to remind us to say "I Love You".
