Neglected! I’m sad to say this is definitely the word that comes to mind when it comes to my blog of late, BUT that is all about to change as I have an announcement. I have a new job. A new thirst for life. And the passion I haven’t felt in a while in wanting to blog and be a stable part of this community again.
For the past few months I realised a part of me was just not happy, and sadly in large part it was due to work. I was spending over 3 hours every day travelling there, and due to an upcoming relocation I was constantly on the edge that they would announce the move date and I would be instantly unemployed as it was too far for me to travel. Off the back of this I was constantly tired, I was not very well which could have been down to stress and I majorly neglected my blog off the back of this.
On Tuesday I started my new job with Debenhams, who I previously worked for as a supervisor in one of the stores, but this time round I have moved to Head Office and my new title is Implementation Fixture Coordinator. I’m so happy to be back working in a company I feel at home with and I have a new challenge that I am ready to throw myself into.
Although I have not been able to find the time or the drive to blog I have made sure to keep active on social media, and I went on a bloggers trip to Center Parcs about two weeks ago so I didn’t quite go completely MIA. I love the blogging community, the people I get to meet because of it, the opportunities I’m lucky enough to have on behalf of it and just having my own little part of the internet that has been mine for years now.
Another great thing that comes out of the new job is I can finally make a solid start on saving and moving out in the new year with my friend Abi. We have been friends for about 8 years now and she recently started blogging herself so we have already decided that we will have a blogging/vlogging room in our new place. I even invested in a filming and photography set from Amazon in preparation for this, it’s got lights, backgrounds, green screens, the lot! This year has not been the greatest for me, there’s been more lows than highs, so I’m happy to come out of it on a uplifting note.
