Stavanger (Norway) Midwifery Study Trip!

A few months ago I headed to Norway on the University of Nottingham's first Midwifery Study Trip. Click here to watch the vlog or see below. It was a strange trip to be honest. You had to apply and write a statement to say why you should go as it was a competitive process with only ten places. I was very excited when I found out I was successful, but as the time drew nearer, we didn't have any details and cost upon cost kept getting added to the total price, despite being told it was "heavily subsidised". In all honesty, I'm still not convinced it was subsidised at all because it turned out to unfortunately, be very expensive and I really did have to stretch my budget massively, which now means I can't go on the elective I had planned in summer 2020 but once there, I had fun. Strangely, Stavanger Norway felt very much like home to me. The weather was chilly and rainy, with cloudy skies almost 24/7, but not freezing. The buildings and shops were also

Ending the Year Strong!

I haven't been the most consistent in the latter half of this year but to be honest, life got crazy busy and I had to put different priorities first. My life has changed so much in the past year and I've had to juggle so much. I was planning on relaunching the blog in the New Year but this blog has always been a passion project for me. I've never seen it as a job, it's always been something I wanted to do...and as I've said many times before, I'll only write when I want to do and when it makes me happy. Well I'm really excited to get back into it and with so many posts to write and share, I thought why wait! Here's to ending the year strong for a change! So I am officially back with a promise to myself to continue to write with love and passion. I have so many posts in my drafts and so many to share so I'm considering doing a post every day in January. What do you think? Let me know in the comments below but I will defintely be back on Monday,

My 2019 Welsh Summer Trip!

I visited my dad in Wales and had a fun packed week with him and his girlfriend. Here's to next year. Click here to watch the vlog or see below.  My week in Wales was absolutely lovely. It was busy but relaxing and it was the perfect refresher. It was also the first time I'd probably seen my dad this year. I briefly saw him for about 20 hours when he happened to be visiting my sister at the same time I was in August, but that was a completely unexpected and unplanned surprise.  I have played darts once before at Sam's when I quickly visited before flying to Croatia so it was nice to experience it again. It's actually super fun and I was pleasantly surprised when I beat dad in an "Around the World" game. In the evening, because it was still quite a nice day, we had a little barbeque outside on the front patio. Meanwhile, throughout the day, dad and I had been attempted to chop down and destroy his bamboo forest. The majority of the height had gone
