Married life, new hair and other musings...


Hello! Long time, no blog post...

As I type this, I'm snuggled up on the sofa, doing my nails, and watching Ru Paul on Netflix. It's raining outside, but inside my flat is an oasis of calm...for once. I've finally finished the honeymoon clothes washing, sorted out all the tidying and have lined up the thank you cards ready for the arrival of the photos in the post, so I can send them out. In short, the wedding thing is all over, and I can get back to normal life.

Except I can't, really. We're trying to buy a house, so we're trying to work out what we can actually afford and mentally decorate it before it's even ours... That coupled with the fact my new fitbit keeps buzzing at me, and I am keenly aware I haven't updated my items on Etsy, and actually I have quite a lot going on in my brain. Oh, and I cut off all my hair, so I'm trying to work out how to wear it for work tomorrow.


If anyone is wondering, married life feels exactly the same as not married life, just you don't have to plan a wedding anymore! I might do some posts over the next few weeks about wedding planning etc, and share some photos etc - what would you like to see?

Point of this post is just to say hello I guess, and set out a plan for my little space on the interest going forward! Gone are the book reviews! No-one read them anyway, let’s be honest…I’m going to continue with the 25 before 25 list, just because I’m so nearly almost there, but I’m also probably going to revert back to generally lifey posts – like this awful new hair regime I have to go through, the lovely new skincare products I’ve settled on, my newfound yoga journey, my struggle with my fitbit, my desire for a house out of an interiors magazine, the trials and tribulations of planning a wedding…just all that kind of fluffy stuff…

Anyway - just thought I'd pop up and say hello - there'll be some more structured posts going forwards, and more about my overall life plan, but for now you can pop on over to the @tumbleandrose instagram to see what I've been up to!

25 before 25 Update #5



So as I type this, I actually have 1 year and 4 months left to do all the things in this list – I’m actually halfway to most of them – some are covered off by honeymoon next month, and others are in the works, like a wedding in Scotland, and travel to New Zealand, but I do need to get my butt into gear for some of the others! (James also wants to do a 30 before 30 as he turned 26 earlier this week, so I might have some more fun making another list!. The ones I’ve done recently have been the more nerdy ones…


11) Pass all my ACA exams – done! November 2016.

It’s been ages since I updated this, but work has been SO busy. Anyway, I took my final exam in November, and found out I passed in December, woo! I’m now ACA qualified, which means I am an chartered accountant, and get a few more letters to add to my ever-growing name (thinking of double barrelling after the wedding…). I’m still in my training contract at my job though so technically I don’t get signed off till September 8th, but still…

22) Read 50 new books – 50/50 – March 2017

Done! So, I read all the books under the bookstag on this blog…and then realised no-one actually reads my book reviews so stopped adding them – in addition to the 47 reviewed on here, I read A Monster Calls, Miss Peregrines Home for Peculiar Children, and Harry Potter and The Cursed Child. Tada! 50, done! I’m also now reading The Circle, but probably won’t update the blog anymore. We’re looking at houses and one of the main things I want is a bay window, so I can create a sit in reading space surrounded by books, but I’m being ruthless as I’m also trying to cut down my stuff, so only books I’ll want to read again and again are being kept!

If you've got a list, have you made any progress?
