I’m ready for a drama free week…please 🤞🏼

Lara Croft (not) to the rescue This weeks blog was meant to be the all-singing, all-dancing, super happy post celebrating the end of Brian. Which is true; it was going to be that until Thursday happened. Thursday went from being the best day ever to “really, not again”… I feel like I’ve become so much… Continue reading I’m ready for a drama free week…please 🤞🏼

Finally we get a formal! And an entire week crutch-free…

Rowing dinner Tomorrow marks mine and Brian’s 10th anniversary, and to mark the occasion I have had a whole week of walking without him or my crutches. After last week’s devastating news that the fracture was still there, I’ve been working hard on all things rehab and I’d like to think they are starting to… Continue reading Finally we get a formal!

It’s not all plain sailing with Brian…

Learning about Private Equity is much easier outside I think we need to take a moment to appreciate the great British summer we are currently basking in. I am writing this sat on my balcony, in shorts and T-shirt; welcome to Costa Del Oxford. The only negative about this weather, is the level of complaints… Continue reading It’s not all plain sailing with Brian…

Brian is nowhere to be seen; starting new courses; and some big life decisions…

Big news people: for the first time in 7 weeks, I have managed a FULL WEEK without Brian! He is positively gathering dust now in the corner of my room; looking on longingly as I waltz around the place without him. It just wasn’t working between us; I’m too independent and he was way too… Continue reading Brian is nowhere to be seen; starting new courses; and some big life decisions…

8,000 words later we make it through Trinity…part 1

Thank you sunshine 🤩 It was so lovely that the sun graced us with its presence, just as I was crawling out of my assessment hole on Friday afternoon. 12:45pm on Friday, fifteen minutes before the deadline, I submitted my group’s 5,000 word paper, and swiftly went out for a celebratory lunch. These past two… Continue reading 8,000 words later we make it through Trinity…part 1

So much to do, so little time…seeing 2am a little too often and a trip to Lords Cricket Ground

What a week it’s been. Or as one of my MBA friends would say; “it’s been a time”. Too right. Last Sunday seems an age ago, yet it has also flown by so fast. Last Monday Covid restrictions were eased a little, and we were finally allowed to have 6 people indoors, and 30 people… Continue reading So much to do, so little time…seeing 2am a little too often and a trip to Lords Cricket Ground

Brian’s Big Day Out…

What a crew 😍 Tomorrow marks the one month anniversary of our dear friend, Brian. It’s so weird to think that I haven’t used my foot (or leg, for that matter) in four weeks now; and it’s really starting to show. My right leg is looking so skinny minnie compared to my left! It’s partly… Continue reading Brian’s Big Day Out…

It’s tiring being 30 and growing a bone…

Hi Darren 👋🏻 This week I had to accept that the birthday celebrations were definitely over (boo). The decorations and balloons came down (although Darren is still living his best life) and I really had to get focused on school work, as we have somehow come to the end of week 2 already and assessments… Continue reading It’s tiring being 30 and growing a bone…

Welcome to the prestigious 30s club… turning 30 with Brian and a week of new classes

Me. As a cake 🤣 Wow. What a week. It feels like it’s been a complete whirlwind: a mix of emotions; one that has simultaneously flown by but also seems like this time last week was in the last century... So much has happened and as I sit on the sofa with Brian, reflecting on… Continue reading Welcome to the prestigious 30s club… turning 30 with Brian and a week of new classes

I can’t quite believe this week has happened…from feeling on top of the world to a complete wreck

Welcome, Brian This week couldn’t have panned out much worse if it had tried. I literally can’t believe I’m writing this blog post. It weirdly feels like an out of body experience, as if I’m writing about someone else’s life for a week, thinking to myself “gosh, I’m glad that’s not me”. Yet it is… Continue reading I can’t quite believe this week has happened…from feeling on top of the world to a complete wreck
