Well hello 2021.

It’s been 10 months since I last put words on this page.

March 2020 was the last time I actually wanted to write. Then COVID-19 hit. I felt overwhelmed, lost and spiralling. And the easiest thing to drop the ball on was my blog. Because I didn’t want to continue it – I was busy trying to decide if I was going to move to my partner’s. I was busy trying to decide if I was going to look for a new role or take redundancy, or even try and fight for my job. I was busy trying to make sense of this ‘new normal’ and understanding what I could still do.

It’s 10 months later, and I still struggle with some things. I struggle with motivation some days and I struggle with trying to see that light at the end of the tunnel some days. But I have more of a routine and feel a bit more normal. I’ve picked up new hobbies and skills to keep me busy. I’ve started to settle a bit more into this ‘new normal’.

And for the first time in forever, I just wanted to type.

It’s taken me 10 months to get here – but happy to be back ☺️
