• Where Have I Been?

    I don’t know how many people have noticed but I have had a few people question how my blog is going, and if you looked on my homepage you’d see that I haven’t actually posted since August! *gulp*
    Where have I been? This is the longest I’ve ever gone without publishing any kind of post/review/article!

    So what happened?!

    Touch wood, I have no terrible story about me being poorly or something awful happening in my life that prevented me from publishing any new content. I had a good routine going with my other job and my blog which worked well, and once I had broken that routine within the madness of what’s going on at the moment, I really struggled to get back in to that.

    Working in retail during this COVID pandemic has been trying at the best of times, and as I work early mornings I felt that work was really getting to me – by the time I got home I just wanted to sleep and had no motivation to do anything else!

    I often struggle with my confidence, and I really do that cliche thing of “staring at something until I hate it” it’s so easy to start doubting yourself, especially when people that you don’t personally know read what you have to say on your little corner of the internet.

    I have also had a few technical issues with my blog.. I am not the most technically minded, and because I recently changed over my hosting provider there were a lot of steps I had to complete using plugins and software that I was not previously aware of which completely melted my brain! I do get very overwhelmed with all the technical bits – I am really not a natural at troubleshooting or coding so I do tend to keep putting off these jobs I know I will struggle with. 😛

    Now that my absolute favourite time of year is coming round, I am determined to get back to posting at least once a week and share all sorts of lovely wintery bits and bobs with everyone. (see my previous post on some fab winter movies)

    This is obviously not one of my standard posts but I just wanted to write a little explanation about where I have been. Thank you for reading this little update and hope everybody has been staying safe during the pandemic 🙂
