The February Round-Up

Dear February, where on earth did you go? 

This month was a strange one. I had my wrist operation smack bang in the middle of the month and it wrote off more of my time that I thought it would. For some reason I assumed I'd be at home for a couple of days then back to normal life by the sea. Nuh-uh. I was bandaged up, in a sling, unable to move my wrist or in pain for a good week and half and still (and won't for months) have my full range of motion. I'm not sure what I expected as it was an full on operation under general aesthetic, but I guess I didn't want to be that person who made a mountain out of a molehill so talked it down until it happened. But it's nearly March now and it's getting better day by day! Due to this, and the fact I'm in the third year of my degree and losing the will to live... I've felt pretty stressed with the university work, blog/YouTube balance and the not-so distant call of the future, of course. 

However, February has had some very fun times! 
- Celebrating the lovely bride-to-be, Maz, on her hen do and catching up with lots of friends.
- Seeing Jason Derulo for free and discovering my new bae. 
- Pancake day with all the uni lot and for once, getting the pancakes pretty spot on (if I do say so myself!) 
- Spending a delightful valentines Day date with my love. 
- Receiving so many lovely, caring messages after my operation from friends and family. 
- Signing my first contract to work with a brand. Exciting stuff. Mini milestones reached!
- Spending some time with the family whilst I was recovering. 
-All topped off with a weekend of incredible food cooked by Henry's mum, lots of wine and bubbles, amazing company and talks late into the night. Then, Sunday morning hungover dog walks (which are difficult to bring yourself to do, but secretly fun because you know you're all struggling a little bit inside...) before the reward of hot cups of tea, flakey pastries, smokey bacon and runny eggs. Perfect!

You can see all of these moments in my Weekly Vlogs below. I can't believe I've done another whole month! Also uploaded this month:
