I know, it’s been a while, huh? I’ve had a really busy time as of late! There was a period of about 6 weeks where I was busy every weekend, my mam came up to stay for almost a week, and I’ve been busy looking for new jobs. It’s all been a bit of a whirlwind, and I’m feeling quite overwhelmed.
That said, writing here makes me feel calmer. I’ve been too busy doing the ‘non-negotiable’ things, but tonight I’ve sacked them off. To hell with responsible adulthood (for one night at least…).
Anyway, I’ve got a few posts lined up, but this one condenses my ‘now’ into a few sentences. It’s really helped me to try and figure out just where my head is right now, amongst all the busyness. I think this will become a regular posting.
Currently, I am:
