Hello, my lovely followers and readers of my blog! I hope you haven’t missed me that much! 😉
I hope you are all okay and if you aren’t feeling ok. Just remember that’s it ok not to be ok and I hope you can get the right support you need and if you want to talk please remember that I’m here and the correct charities are here to support you!
This is my 238 blog post! Like wow! I feel like it’s only yesterday since I’ve started this blog and the whole journey with you lovely people! It’s like 2am on an early Thursday morning. I’m currently listening to drake as I can’t sleep!
First of all.. one of my best friends called Sadie who’s also a well-known motherhood blogger aka @lifewiththewoodheads she’s having another baby!!! She told me a while back and I kept it secret until she finally announced it! I’ve started to look around for gender neutral clothes as I don’t the baby gender yet until the baby is born! So I can’t wait for that. I can’t wait till I see her and logan which is her little boy! Also hopefully we can do a collaboration together as we keep saying we do but we don’t hehe! Also, who votes if the baby is a girl she should be called Shannon… I do 😉
The second bit of news is that I’ve started to get back friendships what I lost due to my bad and unhealthy coping mechanisms in 2018! I feel so happy and content with that. I’m so happy that I’ve been given another chance to get friendships back what were lost.
The third bit of news is that I’ve passed my online theory CPD level 3 mental health nursing course! I passed with a higher distinction which is the highest grade on that course!
The fourth bit of news is that I will be deferring a year for the university for my mental health nursing course the practical side bit. I don’t want to go into that as it upsets me. Just so you know, I’m trying my hardest but it always seems to be someone loves to knock you down. Maybe 2020?
The fifth bit of news is that I’m getting back into my blog! Which is amazing. I’m not going to promise you a schedule as you know me, every time I say I’m sticking to a routine. Something happens but I’m going to try my hardest to post two times a week. I want to talk about mental health, what happens in my week and document every bad and good day, also talking about fashion and beauty as you all know I love clothes and makeup!
The sixth and final news is.. Youtube. I don’t know if I’m going to carry on with it. I want to sort my blog out first. As my blog is my baby.. I’ve had it nearly 2 years in July 2019! I totally should have a little birthday cake for my blog. I will decide on youtube in a couple of months. But I’ll always keep you updated with life on here or my social media accounts!
Till next time!
With lots of love!
