Crazy long time no talk, I know! How are you all doing? I haven't blogged in almost three weeks and that is absolutely crazy to me. I am so sorry. I have always been someone who tries to upload daily so, for me, three weeks is like an absolute eternity. In case you've been wondering what I've been up to, let's recap the last few weeks.
Firstly, if you read this update post you'll know that I was recently made redundant. My last day wasn't going to be until Christmas Eve but, nevertheless, it was a really stressful time for me. I've been applying for jobs like crazy, as I'm sure you can imagine, which just didn't leave much time for anything fun, including blogging! In amongst all the job applications and, unfortunately, rejections, I started to just feel a little crappy. This year has, without a doubt, been the hardest year of my life and I think everything just got on top of me. I'm feeling much better now though, and I've finally found a new job which I'm really excited about, especially because it's within the same organisation that I work for now. Even though I'll be moving offices I won't be saying a full on goodbye to the amazing people I work with now! Very exciting!
With all that said and done I intended to have a super busy weekend taking photos, writing and scheduling blog posts and just catching up on everything I missed in the blogosphere but, alas, my body has other ideas. I have somehow managed to fracture a few ribs (yes, ouch) and, whilst sitting and typing isn't causing me too much pain, taking photos for a blog post is just too much at the moment. Agh! I'm so disappointed and I promise I'll be back as soon as possible!
If you read my last update post you may remember that I mentioned that one of my best friends was due to come home last month, on November 17, after being away for six months. He surprised me at work a week before he was meant to be home which, of course, was amazing and I am so glad to have him home, even though he repeatedly lied to me for months on end! Sneaky, huh? It's been so good having him home and being able to make up for lost time!
I know I promised you guys a huge giveaway to celebrate my 1 million page views and, rest assured, it is still coming! I have collected far more goodies than I first anticipated and I'm still trying to figure out the best way to photograph it. Until then, I'm giving away $200.00 with a few other blogging lovelies so don't forget to check that out here.
Lastly, I still have quite a few items available as part of my blog sale and I will be adding more over the coming days. Don't forget to keep checking back!
aaaand how have you been?
