I’m back, have you missed me?! I’ve certainly missed you and catching up with the blogging community!
Since starting my blog nearly 2 years ago I have posted consistently without a break, however the pressure and stress of uni life was so much in December that something had to give and I decided to take a step back from blogging.
I think this impromptu break has actually been positive for my blog as I have come back with lots of ideas for new content. What’s more, I am no longer going to put pressure on myself to post three times a week – I will post regularly but only if I am happy with the quality of the content. Quality over quantity.
So what have I been up to over the last month?!
Mostly lots of essay writing!
Over the past 5 years I have submitted approximately 9,000 words in assignments which has been incredibly stressful and draining – but also enjoyable as ultimately I do love being a student and being immersed in the world of academia.
The next hurdle is submitting my Ph.D proposal…. am I good enough? Will my proposed area of research be important enough? Can I really do this? I’ll keep you posted with my progress.
Another development which has been keeping me busy has been the progress in fitting a lovely new kitchen which is around 3/4 complete now.
We still have the work tops to fit, and we are waiting for a plumber to change the position of the washing machine and dishwasher so the final units can then be fitted.
So the bulk of the new kitchen should be fitted and ready to decorate by the end of January. How exciting!
I have been looking around for the right tiles for the kitchen but I am still struggling to pick a colour scheme in general…. but I have lots of ideas!
I love greys, blues and greens so I’m sure they will feature in the final decoration of the kitchen.
So yes, Christmas also happened! That seems like a lifetime ago as time just flies so, so quickly. I had a lovely Christmas spending quality time with family and friends inbetween my assignments.
I received lots of lovely presents and I will be posting a full reveal and review soon! So do check back.
Thank you 😊
