A quick apology, I know that I have not posted in a month and I feel terrible about it. I have been so busy that my blog had to take a backseat. This will only be a quick life update before regular posting shall resume within the next week. I have moved into a very gorgeous flat in my home village which has taken a lot longer than I expected to organise. Especially as two days after I moved in, I started a new job. I am so happy about both of these developments. I now live in a stunning two bed apartment with beautiful views over the canal and across the valley. The second bedroom is now being used as my very own office and make up room. I plan on posting a flat tour when all I have finished decorating exactly how I want. I thought I would find it strange moving from a house back into a flat but it has been fine and honestly after living with my Gran, it is nice to have my own space with all my things around me.
Going back into work after not working for three years (due to anxiety, depression and other illness) has been hard but so rewarding. I work with my oldest friend and without her I do not think I would have found it such an enjoyable experience. However, now I am settled and happy going to work everyday. The job and the move back to Bath has helped my mental health; my anxiety has decreased to the point where I no longer worry about leaving the house. The only time it has affected me is when I went back to London for the day although in the end I had a really enjoyable time. Physically however, my body is struggling. As I suffer with chronic fatigue anyway, pacing is incredibly important and after being out of work for so long, it is taking a while to get used to the routine again. Especially when I have early shifts. Exhaustion is setting in and I am so glad that I have had a solid four day break from work this week.
The final update; I was successful in transferring universities and I will now be finishing my degree at University of Bath. It is exciting because UoB is second in the country for my degree choice! And it also where I now work. Therefore everything has worked out in the best way possible. That is not to say everything is perfect; there is other situations that have been difficult and testing. But I have faith in the universe and more importantly, I have faith in myself. Life is looking up 🙂
As I said, I will be resuming normal posting as soon as possible. Until next time 🙂
