I have not been writing as much lately, but not for lack of trying. My life has just been quite chaotic as of late. I feel as though I’m still in April, so the fact that it’s just about June really has me thrown. Even writing right now, my mind is going ninety trying to remember everything I need to do.
So, to update you all with why I have been so hit or miss these past few weeks in meeting my Sunday posts. As I mentioned above, April was pretty crazy. The company I was working for this past year closed down, and to say I was heartbroken is an understatement. It was hand on heart the best job I could have wished for, and I was privileged to work with the most incredible people. Losing that job hit me like a tonne of bricks, and, to be honest, I am still pretty devasted.
Trying to move on from there, I got the opportunity to join another company, which is also such a lovely place, but it is more hours, and with starting in a new workplace comes the exhaustion from all the training, learning and meeting of new people. I am quite an introverted personality, and this is a big team, so I’ve been falling asleep early every night these past couple of weeks.
Then with all of this going on, it was my grandad’s birthday, his first birthday since he passed away last summer. He would have been 90 this year. That was another tough day at the end of April. Last year, during the first lockdown, was the first year I hadn’t been there to celebrate by his side. And we were all looking forward to this year, hoping to make up for it. So, that made this year hurt doubly as much.
Basically, I have had a lot on my plate this past month or so. It had taken me a while to get into that balance where I posted weekly prior, and now with everything shaken up a little, I think I am going to need to take some time to find that balance once again. As a result of that, and after a lot of deliberating, I have decided to go post every second week now instead. Hopefully, as the weeks and months go by, I’ll be back to weekly, though!
Short post this week, I know, but I’ll be back to it properly by the 13th of June! See you all then.💓
