It’s been just over two weeks since I last posted – I have officially failed at blogging! I’ve written down lots of ideas in my blogging notebook but I just haven’t been able to find the time to write.
I’ve been away with work a lot over the last couple of weeks which has meant long hours and lots of travelling. I thought the train journeys would provide me with plenty of time to write but in all honesty, I’ve felt completely drained and every time I got my laptop out to blog, my mind was just blank (I know someone, somewhere will make a joke about that, most probably my husband). It’s impossible for me to write, even if I have the ideas in front of me, if I’m not in the right frame of mind.
In between work and travelling, I’ve been studying and working hard on my business plans and I’m getting more and more excited as things start to take shape. I’m hoping to have some ideas down “on paper”, along with some mock ups of the products and would really appreciate a few people to have a look over them and give me some totally honest feedback. If you think you can help me, please let me know! As my ideas have been coming together and forming more of an actual plan, I thought it was time to treat myself to new stationary and I’ve gone completely mad for this collection from Wilkos:
I actually bought everything the store had in this range (I cannot for the life of me remember what it’s called).
Me and my husband spent the weekend in London looking at flats. It was a completely manic weekend of rushing around London looking at flats that looked absolutely nothing like their adverts. There was a lot of disappointment and frustration but I think we have found a couple of places we like and *fingers crossed* we should have some sort of plan in place by the end of the week. Despite the running around and constant motion sickness from hopping on and off the underground, it was nice to spend some quality time with Sean after having spent most the week in a Premier Inn in Watford. We also got to catch up with a friend we lived with at Uni and met up with my family for brunch on Sunday morning.
Another highlight of our weekend in London was going to see Sherlock Holmes’ house on Baker Street – my inner geek was super excited about this! We didn’t have time to queue up and actually go inside but it’s now on my list of things to do once we move to London.
The job hunt has taken an unexpected and exciting turn but there will be more about that over the next couple of weeks!
I’m really hoping to keep on top of the blog posts now that my work timetable has calmed down a bit and any travelling I have to do over the next few weeks is fairly close to home. I’m sorry this was a bit of a whirlwind round up of what I’ve been doing since I last posted, I promise my posts will be back to normal from now on!
