Another Sunny Day

 Hat: gift // Dress: H&M, £15 // Shirt/Shoes: Primark £4/£5 // Bag: M&S, £old

Pretty mint green accessories helped to liven up a slightly boring get-through-a-hot-day-of-work outfit, not that I'm complaining about the sunshine though. Wearing tights in June felt way unnatural, even by my standards. These loafers actually came out of the men's section of Primark last summer, because I needed something a bit more substantial for the walk to work in than the endless variations of flipflops the women's section held.

My new job is proving to be a bit of a dream - yesterday we hung out at the park for a while & then played football until hometime! No one wanted to be on my team because I'm a giiiirrrrl, but I soon showed them. I've not worked out whether you're actually supposed to let the kids win at things or not yet, but I kind of feel like it does their humility good to lose occasionally, so I shan't be stopping my victory laps any time soon. Ha, does that make me sound a terrible person? Oh well...

Take some time out to resuscitate my soul

Hello there, have you missed me terribly?

I took an unexpected break from blogging these last few weeks to deal with some personal issues. I didn't feel much like blogging, about them or anything else really - more like lying around in bed all day crying, but there comes a time when you've got to look yourself in the mirror and say 'suck it up princess'. The things that were crap in my life are still crap, but if there is nothing that I can do to change them, then I can't change them, so I've resolved to stop feeling sorry for myself and just well, get on with it. Blogging about what I was wearing and what I had for tea and such felt a little inconsequential in comparison to all the (melo)drama, but maybe I could use a bit of lightness in my day to day right about now, and a hobby just for the hell of it seems to fit with that.

The other reason I've not been blogging is that I started my new job last Monday, so I've got a lot less free time. It's been pretty brilliant so far though, and I'm dead excited for my first pay cheque to come through! The only downside so far is that it's making my other job seem even worse in comparison, so we'll have to see how much longer I last at that one...

So I might be blogging a little less frequently from now on (I value my evenings with Hubby too much, I hope you understand), but hopefully this is me, 'back for good', as that 'orrible Gary Barlow would say (I've finally started dropping my H's, 5 years after moving to Yorkshire).

P.S. One other reason is that my laptop is on the brink of death, and turning it on to type this up took me a good HALF HOUR. Craptop does not even begin to cover it.
