Hello 2016

(image credit)

Oops, long time no blog! What happened to #blogmas? My full time job, thats what happened. It's a constant frustration of mine as obviously I have to work to buy the pugs everything they need (& more!)& y'know pay the bills etc, but I'm forever wishing for extra hours in the day to do what makes me happy. Anyway now the new year is here I feel like a review of 2015 needs to be done before I can begin with any other blog posts, it's always nice to have something to look back over.

Without a doubt 2015 was the best year of my life, so far! We finally bought our very own house in May, a goal that had been ours for about 2 years, but these things take time & a whooooole lotta patience, however it paid off in the end & was so worth all the stressing & saving. It's the best feeling knowing this entire house is all ours, I'm having so much fun learning to DIY things, decide on decor & generally just enjoying our place to live. It's such a huge achievement, that I'll be content if we don't achieve anything for the next few years haha, but we will still push on & try reach those goals! I'd always had it in my head that I'd like to get on the property ladder before I was 25 & we smashed that target at managing to climb the ladder at just 23. I can't help but be super proud of us!

Another huge highlight was rescuing beautiful little Lulu Pug in August. Pretty much from day one of bringing Tilly Pug home we always knew we would love to have another in our lives one day. I always imagined us getting another puppy though but when we found Lulu we knew we had to save her. Little Lu as she is commonly referred to is such a precious pug & brings us so much happiness. It's the greatest feeling knowing we are giving her the life she has always deserved & there is nothing sweeter than seeing my two babies snuggling up to each other on the sofa.

I had big hopes to travel more in 2015 but we ended up spending more on a house so there wasn't many pennies left in the pot to book a proper holiday. I did however manage to travel a little bit within the UK, we finally visited Brighton with our friends & the pugs for a weekend which was the best and I also went to London a couple of times to see my Sister. I'm so so close to booking a weekend break to Berlin, I'm just trying to hunt down some cheap flights & I hope to visit another European city too if I get the chance!

I have a really good feeling about 2016, I had the same feeling about 2015 which worked out to be pretty awesome so hopefully 2016 ends up being just as great.
