What I've Done this Month: November


November has been a pretty huge month for me actually. As well as having some fun days out, I've also had a couple of life changing things happen to me. It's a been an exciting one!

First Full Time Job
After working weekends/part-time at the garden center for 9 months, I finally have full time there! I absolutely love working there, I work with amazing people and we laugh everyday. It's lovely. I don't know much about horticulture but I am learning, and I really like it. I've learnt a lot just this month too, from picking over plants to using a staple gun to folding clothes for display. I love it, and I can't wait to settle in and learn even more!

Deciding to Move Out & Finding a Housemate
I've been wanting to move out for a while, I'm not sure what's made me want to be independent, but here I am planning out hopeful future interiors, budgeting my money and looking at flats to rent. I guess in this day and age, 18 is young to move out, but I've always felt like I'm older. I'm excited for full freedom, but also nervous. It's going to be a huge learning curve.
I seriously couldn't afford to move out on my own, and I was beginning to just give in and wait because I wasn't house sharing with strangers - I wouldn't have coped! But luckily a boy who works in the cafe wants to move too so we have decided to flat/houseshare! It couldn't be more perfect timing.

Birmingham Day Out
I went on a really nice day out with my mum which was absolutely lovely, and of course spent way too much money but that was the plan! We spent the entire day wandering around the shops, treating ourselves and of course going to Pizza Hut for their pizza buffet for lunch. It was just such a fab day!

It's been a pretty huge month but a positive one, roll on December - there's plenty more excitement to come! The little (actually rather large) image at the top of this post is my cat Humbug! I thought it was about time he made an appearance on my blog haha.

What have you done this month?
