life lately // #3

It's been a while since my last 'life lately' post, in fact the whole of LW has been neglected due to a number of things. If you follow me on Instagram you'll have already read some of whats been happening.

Family | Since the summer we've been dealing with eventually losing my Grandma. After a lot of neglect from the GP an ambulance was at long last called and she was rushed into hospital in May, leaving to come home in August. She's been such a fighter, surviving an operation at 78 with just  30% chance of surviving. Advanced ovarian cancer, primary peritoneal cancer, organs stuck together, organs perforated & peritonitis. To see such an independent woman become bed bound & rely on everyone in the space of a few months has been heartbreaking. None of us could have predicated spending this year as we have. At the beginning of the year my Grandma was my little rock, promising to be there for me always. Instead I was always there for her. Friday saw her funeral, we couldn't have asked for a nicer send off. We're all shattered this weekend, the evening ended with 11 of us staying on, taking over a skittle alley for a men vs womens game of skittles. If my Grandma were still here she'd have loved to see the Yorkshire relatives, our little household and my Grandad, Uncle and Uncles girlfriend getting along fabulously.

Driving Lessons | After making that all important switch to a calmer instructor I managed to pass my test first time. I honestly thought I'd fail with everything going on, my lessons started to go "brilliantly" then my Grandma passed away. The lessons started to go horrendously, cue me panicking being so close to my test date. Manoeuvres weren't sticking in my head. The funeral was to be held the day after my test. The viewing of her would be the evening of my test day. Mother Nature also arrived on my test week, leading me to not sleeping, unable to eat, I felt 'seasick' 24/7 and had severe pain constantly. Then come test day I felt completely calm - much calmer than I'd ever felt with the old instructor. I came out with just two minors - one for a mirror & one for correcting my bay park - I'd only learnt in the test centre car park that very morning. We took great pleasure in texting my old instructor of my pass.

LW Wise | I'm behind SO much but now that the driving test & funeral are over I plan on getting my Christmas content going again. I'm excited to write blog posts and have some incredible opportunities coming my way. 

Home Comforts | I've loved pulling out the winter scents, I started off burning my salted caramel Yankee Candle & hauling Lush Christmas products. It's been so hectic that I've only used the shower products - minus Lord of Misrule the night before my driving test.

Harry & Mollie | I still can't quite believe we have two westie's in the house. Getting our latest bundle of joy this summer has been one of the best decisions we've made as a family. Over the last few months they've brought so much happiness to everyone. Tell me something good that's happened to you recently? Lucy  x
