Hello! Remember me?! It’s been a little while since I’ve posted on my blog and I’ve been very quiet on social media too – most unlike me! I’ve had a little bit of an unplanned break from everything while I’ve been dealing with some tricksy little plot twists that life has thrown my way the last month or so, but I am finally feeling ready to get back on it! So here I am!
Last time I posted I was 29 and living in Central London with my long term boyfriend. I am now 30, living back in South London with my parents and am a single pringle. Yep, February was a big one! I also currently have a sprained foot too – 2016 has been a bit of a bugger to say the least!
Whilst the plot twists were unforeseen I wouldn’t say they were entirely unexpected. They still hit me like a ton of bricks either way. But I feel a LOT better than I did about things a few weeks ago (thank goodness – Camden was in danger of flooding from all the tears I cried!) and I am starting to feel much more like my old self. I sometimes even feel like a sassy independent woman – natch! (As independent as you can be living in your mum and dad’s spare room, but that’s a story for another day…..)
So whilst 2016 (and I guess my future as a whole) isn’t shaping up quite the way I thought it would, it’s ok. It’s just different. I’m going to be fine and I’m going to seize the opportunity to focus purely on myself for the rest of the year. I’ve already had two brilliant weekends away with my girlfriends (seriously, gal pals and beach walks really can cure all! Especially when teamed with copious amounts of prosecco and bacon based food) and am planning more for the rest of the year. I’m going to get fit and healthy (I’ll be fighting my dad for use of his at home exercise bike), I’m going to keep saving as much money as possible so I can buy a place on my own (there’s that Independent Woman I spoke of), and I’ve even been investigating local driving lessons (better late than never eh!)
2016 can still be my year, and I’m going to make it so!
One thing I can’t wait to get back to is this old blogalog. I’ve missed my little corner of the Internet! It’s always been a space for me to come and play and lose myself away from life’s trials and tribulations, so I’m so pleased that I finally feel ready to get stuck in again! I’ve still got A LOT of unpacking to do at my parents (seriously the amount of crap I’ve amassed over the last 6 years in my flat is ridiculous) so it may take a little longer for me unpack my computer / photography bits and pieces but I want to get back to a regular schedule ASAP.
