Where I've Been

So yes, I said this year would be the year of the blog, and yes, I've been completely MIA for the past couple of months. It wasn't intentional to begin with, time just kept getting away from me and I kept putting the blog off. As more time went on I decided to take a break from the blog, as it was simply stressing me out thinking about it and knowing I hadn't posted in a while. Sometimes you just need a break right? Well, I did, because there was so much else going on - something had to give.

So what's been going on?

So on it's own, planning a hen party can be a touch stressful, but not a good enough reason to push my little old blog to the side. And you're right, it wasn't. However, my besties hen party ended up coinciding with one of the most stressful fortnight of my life it felt like. And I'll explain more on that in just a moment... I know some people think Hen Parties can be really, really stressful. I think I was very lucky as everyone I was trying to organise was very easy to do so, and no one really tried to be difficult. So that was good. But the closer I got to it, the more I felt like I had to do and prepare and time just disappeared. It was an amazing weekend, and the bride had a great time which is the main thing, and for me it was the perfect excuse to stop thinking about everything else.

So, the week before I went on the hen do, I found out I was being offered a new job. Very exciting, and I was so so happy, but to be honest - any new job is stressful. The lead up involves research into to the company, making sure you finish everything up in your current job so you leave on a good note, and that general fear that you may not be able to do that job. It was totally unplanned but it was an opportunity that I couldn't turn down. I have now started the new job, and I really like it, and I like what I'm doing, but there's so much information going on it my head right now. There's a bit of information overload going on. When you first start a job there's a feeling that you need to prove yourself, and your worth. Like yes, you did hire me for a reason and yes, I'm the right person for the job. It's a lot of pressure, and teaming this with the hen party and the next thing... Oh god. So much stress.

Oh yeah. Once upon a time I bought my first house, and at the same time I had recently started a job. I swore I would never move and start a new job at the same time again. OH LOOK WHAT I'VE DONE! It was totally not planned. Moving house, yes that was completely planned and we knew we wanted to do that this year and started back at the end of January. Moving house at any time is stressful, there's so much to think about, manage, balance and do that it just screams restless nights and wine binges. Add a new job into the mix... In the space of two weeks we accepted an offer on our house, got a new job, had our offer on our dream house accepted, and had a hen do that I organised. Oh yeah, now you start to understand why my blog went a bit quiet.

I love my blog, I really do, and I love planning and producing new content. I have really missed it, and now things are starting to calm down a little bit, I definitely want to get back into it. We should be moving into our new house very soon (touch wood, fingers crossed) and everything else has come together, so I'm feeling a bit more me.

So thank you to everyone who has still stuck around, and still wants to see content on here. You guys are awesome...

Much love, Lisa May
