Big Changes

Posted on Updated on

So much has happened in the last couple of months. It’s been crazy when I think about it. But I’m hoping that all these changes will make a bigger and brighter future for myself.
So since in the last 6 months, this has happened:
• my boyfriend moved in with me
• my nan came out of hospital after being in there 4 months
• my brother was diagnosed with Gilbert’s Syndrome
• my boyfriend moved back out due to personal reasons rather than relationship ones
• We broke up due to many


• I found somewhere else to leave so I can move out of the house share I’m currently in

And just last week
• my Dad is rushed into hospital with suspected appendicitis. Although turned out to be something very different and minor

To say I’ve been through the wringer a bit lately is an understatement. In this time I have also been ill. All the result of being run down I’d imagine.

Of course some of the things that I have listed are good, especially the moving part. But they all come with their own stresses. I will be glad when the move is done and I can start leading my life the way I want.

I have regrets about how some things have happened and wish I could have done some things differently. But like my Mum always says. You can’t move forwards by looking backwards.


Back From The Dead

Well not quite… but it’s been a while since I last used this blog, and it’s about time that I started things up again!

A lot has changed since I last wrote a blog entry. I have loved and lost and lost 1.5 stone. 

I ended a relationship and started going to a slimming world group (not in that order but it sounded better for writing purposes). 

My outlook on life is slowly changing. This year i turn 30 and I have just now starting to feel more like a grown up. I have a lot less patience than I used to for some people. I am no longer just going to sit around and be the reliable one that just takes on everyone elses problems and not look after myself. So far, this is not getting me anywhere and I am refusing to be a doormat any longer. It may result in me losing some people from my life, but I think I will be happier for it. I don’t enjoy having my kind nature being taken advantage of and I am not going to let it happen any more. 

I am moving home next week, I have been in a house share for 2 long years and it’s time to get my own space. Once I move it’s going to be a new start. Recently I have really not been sticking to the Slimming World plan. Especially in the last week. So next week I am going to start going to a new group, have a new flat with a kitchen I can get access to whenever I want so I have no excuse to not make myself nice, healthy meals. I am actually going to start using all the recipe books I’ve got, get myself right back on track. I need to as I’ve bought a dress in the next size down for a wedding I’m going to in a couple of weeks, and at this rate I won’t fit in it!!
