I’ve been fairly quiet here on the blog the past few weeks which I regret but I’m excited to get back into things in November and aim to get everything back on track. So I thought I’d start a little bit of getting back on track with a life update.
So let’s start with work as it starts to ramp up to peak, it just gets so stressful. It’s not necessarily always my role but there is definitely that general stressed feeling floating around. I’m so glad I work with a great bunch of people, so no matter how stressful it gets you can have a laugh. I’ve also been put on a mentoring scheme which I’m looking forward to, it’s great to have something like this at the start of my career and it will be interesting to see what my outcome will be.
I’ve recently found out I’m intolerant to egg whites and have gone on a full on egg exclusion diet, it’s taken some getting used to as there’s egg in a lot of things you’ve never thought it would be in. I’ve had a problem with certain egg products for years like egg noodle and quiche but cutting it out completely has made me think more about what I’m eating and there’s a lot more things I cannot eat. Saying that I’ve tried out some fun recipes and enjoyed making things from scratch as a number of preservatives are made from egg, I never realised some things were so easy to make and I’m tempted to start sharing some recipes on my blog.
It’s not been an especially great month for my personal life and the people I know and although none of it massively affects me you take a knock. At the start of October my best friend’s dad was diagnosed with cancer, he was always about when I was growing up and although they thought it might be coming when it was confirmed it was quite a shock. So we’ve spent some time having some girly fun night out and spent time together it’s all about being there for those you love. Similarly my boyfriend’s grandfather died unexpectedly, encroaching 90 it’s never totally unexpected but it’s horrible to loose family member so I spent a lot of the month being the supportive friend and girlfriend really trying to be there for them. However bad things always come in threes and in the last couple of days my uncle has being diagnosed with motor neuron disease, which is truly a horrible disease and you know what’s coming even if you don’t know how quickly it will happen.
I think these things make you appreciate life more, what you have and the people in it. Its a case of blink and you’ll miss it. Take the time to spend time with others and appreciate what you have.
So with all of this going on I really just needed to take some time out and shut off, I love my blog but I think it was important to have some me time with no schedules and no pushing myself. I’ve really missed blogging so I’m coming back in November with a vengeance to create some great content that you will love.
