October in Numbers

 October is one of my favourite, and also least favourite, months all in one. It's bittersweet. It's my birthday month, so all of the celebrations that go alongside that are very exciting but it's also a reminder of how quickly life is passing by. It's been a good month though and I'm excited to see what the rest of 2017 has in store!

books read - I've read some excellent books this month including the rest of The Story of a Secret State by Jan Karski, and the one I'm reading now (The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas). Both are insightful and very eye-opening.

1 concert - I went to see Zara Larsson with two of my best friends, and we had the best time dancing the night away listening to some fabulous songs.

2 trips to London - At the start of the month I went to see my friend Mary, and we got Vapiano which is an Italian chain we discovered in Stockholm. It was lovely to catch up, and wander the streets of London. The second trip was during birthday week, and I went with the family to celebrate my younger sister's graduation. It was a lovely trip, and so nice to spend a few days in London.

nights out - So unlike me, but I actually had a fabulous time. I went out twice with Dan, and it was so nice to spend some quality time together having a dance.

1 graudation - My younger sister graduated at the end of October at the University of Greenwich. I was so proud to see her up there collecting her first class paramedic science degree.

1 birthday - I am officially 24, which is insane. I'm excited for what my 24th year has in store for me.

October has been such a fun-filled month. I've really enjoyed spending quality time with my family and friends, and filling the month with birthday celebrations. I'm a very lucky girl!

How has October been for you?

    1. Both are different - but I'd recommend both easily! I don't think I can choose a favourite really.

      I did thank you, Happy Birthday for Friday!!! xx

  2. Happy Birthday! I feel the same way about birthdays now, they're great but also bittersweet, I wish time would slow down! The nights out and reading all sound like fun, I'm always for a good book at the end of a long day xx

    Sending light & love your way,

    My Lovelier Days

    1. Thank you! Yes, they are lovely but a reminder of how fast life goes sadly. I agree, nothing better than getting all cosy with a new read! XX

  3. I love these posts! Such a lovely way of summarising your month. I find October a little deflating as it always reminds me of the first full exciting month back at uni where you're just getting into the swing of things, now life seems to be more of a constant churn!

    Enough about my moans though, it sounds like you had a lovely jammed packed birthday month. I hope your 24th year is wonderful and I look forward to reading more about it!

    1. I had a lovely time, thank you! I know, 4 nights out was a LOT for me! Hope you have a lovely birthday this month xxx
