Let’s Catch Up

Oh hey guys – I’ve got an apology to make because I totally went MIA again didn’t I? I teased you all with a couple of new posts and then bam, I submitted my entry for the worst blogger of 2018 by leaving you all hanging again. Sorry.

Only, that apology is a little insincere because in all honesty I’m not sorry in the slightest.

Why should I be?

Why should I be sorry because I decided to put my little online persona on hold whilst I worked my arse off for a qualification? Why should I be sorry that I decided that after working said arse off I decided I needed a little time to myself and why should I be sorry that I decided to disappear to the middle of nowhere with Mr D, to the land of no G and have a grand ol’ night away.

The answer of course is I shouldn’t be, but this morning (by this morning I mean Monday, say hey to me from the past) I woke up with the intense desire to GET MY SHIT TOGETHER and make an effort again.

In love, in life and just in general.

You see this last year I have not been myself, in fact I would say I have been a shadow of myself and whilst I feel it is important to touch on the reasons behind my disappearance this year, I also want to take the time to explain everything properly.

And so in true blogger style, here’s a little teaser of things to come, I have some (hopefully) A* content coming your way over the next month or so which will do just that.

But I don’t want you guys to think that I’ve just been lazy, because I haven’t, I’ve not been me.

I haven’t been pushing myself, I’ve been letting people take advantage and not standing up for myself and I’ve been letting things get on top of me instead of doing something about it.

It’s all just got too much and it’s left space for nothing but an overwhelming feeling of dread and fear 24/7.

I guess I just wanted to say that I’m still here, that 2018 has been a hard year and although I’m trying to get back to my best it might take a little while longer.

But I know you will all understand – because at the end of the day you are often the ones that have got my back, that lift me up and keep me going … you wonderful little sasspots, you’re the best x
