I’ve had quite a break from this little blog of mine, haven’t I? In reality, it’s not even been that long but everything feels longer when it comes to the online world. I’ve also had quite a break from social media. There are many reasons for this, some of which you’ll know if you follow me on Instagram as I’ve given small updates every so often.
We lost one of our dogs in July from a short but aggressive illness. We had to make the best decision for her but it was a truly devastating and extremely difficult time for the family. If you’ve ever lost a pet you’ll know how hard it is to go through. We lost a big part of our family and I was sad for a long time after. I didn’t have the capacity to post the various happy bits going on in my life when every day I was just sad over losing her. It’s gotten better since that time even though I think about her every day.

A big life update for me is that I’m actually going to be an auntie as my sister is expecting her first child. I’m endlessly excited and happy for her and my soon to be brother-in-law and you just know that that child is going to be spoiled rotten from all of us.
It’s the first time I’ve ever been an auntie via my own family so it’s a very exciting time and I’m trying to be as present as possible during this time as her pregnancy seems to be going SO fast. I’m sure she wouldn’t say that though! It must be so hard to be pregnant through such a strange time so we’re all trying to support her as best as we can. I’m also helping them get their house in order since they moved early on this year. Doing things like painting, sorting out and tidying etc. It’s been so nice to spend so much time with her again.

I don’t really have many updates for what I’ve been doing during this time off from my blog. Just resting and keeping to myself mainly. I’ve got a lot of big old ideas for this blog though. I really have missed posting daily on Instagram and sharing all the little everyday things that happen. I have been sharing quite a lot over on Tik Tok though which is a platform I never realised I could love so much. One of my goals ages ago was to get more into film and video-based media which I originally thought would be Instagram stories and IGTV but I’m loving filming Tik Toks. It’s a very pressure-free platform for me which I love. If you haven’t downloaded it already then I would recommend it, there’s something for everyone on there!
I’ve been trying to keep up to date with Instagram but it is hard when you’ve been trying to take a break from the app! You might see my face popping up more now over on there. I love creating imagery and posting content.
Its been so quiet not posting on Instagram or my blog and I’m excited to get back to it. I’ve got lots of content coming throughout September so keep an eye out!
