I've not posted anything in a few weeks and it's been weird. What I mean to say is, there's been notable steps my mind has gone through during this absence. Something that I didn't realise would happen. When I read blogs or watch people on youtube and they've had some well deserved time off or have just been simply too busy to post, they always seem to be apologising for their lack of content. I always find this weird. They don't have to make videos or write blog posts for our entertainment, so why do they feel the need to apologise?! Well now I get it.
I usually try and write one blog post a week. Sometimes I manage it, sometimes I don't. I'm new to this, so I try not to put too much pressure on myself. My blog is barely 6 months old and I'm still getting into the swing of things. So why when I end up missing a week do I feel such an insane amount of guilt?!
So here's my explanation. Life's been busy and I'm still trying to work out how this little blog fits into my life. I'm an inherently lazy person and when a bit of free time arises I will almost always choose to snuggle up on the sofa and read a book. Which means many things don't get done (including the pile of washing I'm currently avoiding while I write this post)!

Also I'm in the middle of trying to buy a house. My first house! It's highly frustrating at the moment as my mortgage lender can't find anyone in the Greater Manchester area that can do a full home buyers valuation apparently, so it 14 days after they've taken my money and we're no further on! Apparently in Sweden the process of buying and moving into a house only takes around 1 week! I don't know how true this is, but it's apparently a rather fun bit of info to give to someone in my current predicament! People can be cruel. Can they not see the stress?!
But it's not been all stress, the most money ever spent and no play! I went to see he Adams Family the Musical at the Lowry this Saturday and it was possibly one of the best shows I've ever seen! It was absolutely magical and there will be a post all about it very soon!
Writing this has been a kind of therapy and I apologise for the rambling! I didn't realise how much I've come to enjoying doing this and I aim to get myself more organised in the future. But I can't promise a missed week here or there won't happen, but I will do my best.
