♥ My Eight Month Absence/Life Update!

I haven't posted on this blog in nearly eight months. I find that really insane, given I was enjoying it all so much at some point last year... In December, I vowed to take part in 'blogmas' but then life went a little crazy and I just couldn't keep up with it. Here's how my life has changed:

In November of last year I took the plunge and moved out of home. It seemed the most natural thing to do - given I'd only really gone to university because I believed moving out of the toxic environment I had to call my family home seemed like a sane and safe decision. My upbringing and family environment had such a negative impact on my mentality and moving out and living on my own was a decision I made while still at university. I quit drinking and going out in my third year and saved up all my loans so I had a deposit ready and plenty of cash to spend on furniture and setting up my own little life. It all happened very quickly, I rented a cosy little modern maisonette - the first place I'd been to view and even though it's expensive and difficult to maintain when you're a twenty year old gal living on your own, but you can't put a price on happiness, can you?

In early December, a mere four weeks after moving out I popped back 'home' to visit my Mom one afternoon. All I found was a skeletal figure, curled up in bed. She had no idea who she was or what was going on. She was admitted into hospital instantly and stayed there for two months while they begun to determine why she'd lost all sense of reality. It was a hard time, going through the same old routine of my mom being ill, and I lost the ability to come home and blog, I had no money to buy nice new things and I just lost myself a little in the chaos of life with a critically ill parent.

But now I'm finding my feet again and I think I'm ready to come back. Some amazing things have happened over the past few months and it's a shame I never got to document them and share my experiences with you but I'm ready to get back into the swing of things, now. Speak to you soon!
