Well hello there. How have things been?
It’s been a few weeks, hasn’t it? I promise I’ve got a good reason for disappearing for a few weeks and it’s not just because I haven’t read a book in a bit.
I have a couple of half finished posts sitting in my drafts but I didn’t want to post them before I’d done a little update since it’s a pretty hefty one! It’s also news that I imagine will crop up in my future posts and I don’t want you scratching your head in confusion.
Lockdown aside, there are two big updates that I need to let you know about and have a natter about!
1. I passed my final essay! Writing a 5,000 essay in lockdown was an experience and caused a pretty large chunk of stress. Recently, I found out I’ve passed which means I’m technically finished my course. I was contemplating a ‘top up’ for another year but COVID made the logistics a little too difficult so I think I’m going to have to hit pause on that…
2. I bought a house. Yep, somehow I managed to buy a house at 25. I don’t really understand how either! I wouldn’t recommend buying a house in a pandemic but it feels so good to relax in my home on an evening. Unfortunately, it’s been a little trickier than I anticipated to untangle myself from my old house thanks to the lockdown etc but it’ll all be worth it. I’m certainly no expert but if you want to see house buying / decorating/ (very very simple) DIYing, let me know. I’m so excited to have some time to potter and sort it when my big work deadlines are done! It’s a summer of sorting this year!
As you can imagine, these two things have been taking up quite a lot of my brain space so I’m afraid the blog hasn’t been my priority. Now that they’re (kind of) sorted, I feel like I’ve got the space for my hobbies again. I’m long overdue some reading/ writing/ crafting and I’m sure I’ll be updating you on them soon.
