Wedding planning has taken a backseat…
Well it has been a really busy month. With the date, venue and church sorted I feel a bit relieved.Â Weâ€™ve just got our â€˜save the dateâ€™ cards printed too.
However, planning the wedding has taken a backseat recently. Work has been full on as Iâ€™ve just returned from the Philippines where I reported on the terrible storm that caused widespread damage and huge loss of life.Â I travelled to the island of Cebu for CBBC Newsround to see how children are coping during this desperate time.
Some of the childrenâ€™s stories were heartbreaking but surprisingly many of the young people I spoke to remain hopeful and positive about the future. Itâ€™s so humbling to see how theyâ€™ve coped with the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan.
Now Iâ€™m back home, looking forward to a break over Christmas â€“ some quality time with the family and my future husband! My last Christmas as Miss Gooding! â€œ
