A New Chapter

I can only apologise for my absence on the whole blogging front.  I far underestimated how little time I would have to do all of the things that I wanted. A little while ago I got offered a full-time waitressing job which to go alongside my cleaning work takes up a lot of my time. No it’s not the dream, but for someone who has had such trouble finding a job in the past it’s a big step.
I’m still working on carving out that dream career I’ve always dreamed of, and believe me that fire in my belly is stronger than ever. But right now having guaranteed work is a huge stepping stone for both mine and Simon’s future.  
The wedding is drawing ever nearer, with less than nine months to go the planning and preparation has fully notched up a gear. Again I failed at underestimating the time and energy that goes into it. Emotionally I feel a little bit overwhelmed, even the smallest of things (listening to our first dance song) and wondering how I will cope when it’s time for my Dad to give me away.

  Is my life line, I live and breathe it. Which I never thought in a million years I would. I can’t imagine a time in my life where running was not a part of it. I feel a zest for life when I run, I feel alive and at my fittest.  Exercise and healthy eating is a big part of my life, and takes up a lot of my spare time. I’ve worked hard for my body and having lost 4st in weight, I’m determined to stay both fit and healthy.

So where does this leave the blog?

Well I’ve realised a lot of things have changed, but deep down I’m still the girl who loves to write. I still love to engage and oh heck I love vintage, charity shops and second-hand so we’ll just see where this journey takes us.
