It has been months (well actually over 2 years!!) since I last blogged here and my world now looks quite different. I decided to come back to blogging to give myself somewhere to write, a corner of the internet that is just mine. I have a few ideas of things to write about, and I think I’m going to try and do a few blogging challenges to get back into the swing of things.
This blog is really for me, I’m hoping I might pick up some friends and readers along the way, but for now I’m going to write about the things I like, the things I do, the things I buy and probably the things I worry about. Welcome to the world Becca blog!
I should probably expand on the point about my world looking a bit different. I still live in Norwich with lovely Dave but am no longer unemployed (yay!) I’m actually on job 2 since I last posted. I shan’t talk directly about my work here (rules are rules). I work in digital marketing here in Norwich.
The biggest change in my life since I last wrote was the sudden loss of my beautiful mum last summer. I have a whole blog post to write on that – probably many of them – but grief is a personal thing and I don’t yet know how much I want to share online. I think, if you are going to be on this journey with me you probably should at least know that though. My life is naturally altered by this huge loss, and it’s likely to reflect in the things I have to say and the different experiences I’m having now. You know how when you have your eyes tested they try out different combinations of lenses to get the best fit for you? Well I feel like a new lens has been put on my world now, and I’m just getting used to the way it feels, having to refocus my eyes as it were.
Another change is my student status. I’m currently studying for a diploma in digital marketing through a distance learning course. That is likely to be a topic that comes up every now and then too!
Some other things that haven’t changed:
- I’m still a caffeine fiend! I’m hoping to include a few posts about my coffee habit, and the awesome places I find to drink it!
- I’m still very much a stationery obsessive. A girl can never have too many notebooks or pens and I still calm myself down by looking at pretty stationery. I’ll share some of my acquisitions with you.
- I still read huge numbers of books. I’m keeping a running tally this year (I’m on book 21 I think). There might be some posts on the awesome books I read.
I think I’ll leave it here for now. I hope I’ve not sent you to sleep too much.
I’ll be back soon 🙂
