I have been blogging since the beginning of 2015. It’s nearly 2017, so that’s nearly 2 whole years I’ve spent rambling on the internet. I didn’t always have this blog though, no, this is my new blog that I have decided to start (quite late at night… I should be sleeping for school tomorrow) simply because I felt like a change. After a while, I found that I wasn’t really enjoying myself and blogging felt more like a chore than a hobby that I love to do. I feel like a change of scenery will cure this, so I’ve decided to throw caution into the wind and set sail on a new blogging adventure over the great ocean we call the internet.

It’s been a hot minute since I have done something completely spontaneous and outta the blue. I’m the kinda gal who has to have everything planned out by time of departure and activities to partake. So when my sister asked if I wanted to go on a road-trip with her and her boyfriend I was a bit apprehensive. After some persuasion I was convinced to go and I’m so glad I did!

Anyone suffering from any form of mental illness will know just how difficult it sometimes is to cope from a day-to-day basis. I actually often find that because I got a bit of help (6 weeks of free counselling and a few anxiety meds) there is an expectation for me to be completely fine all the time. This is ridiculous. Just because I’m ‘recovering’ doesn’t mean I can’t have bad days.

Every year there is a vintage car show held at Spring Hill House in Moneymore, and every year I go to it with my Dad. I’m not super into the cars (that’s more my Dad’s style) but Spring Hill House is one of my fave places in the whole world!

Oh hello there.. it’s been a looong time since I’ve posted anything on my wee blog, not for the lack of love, but I’ve just been in a bit of a ‘slump’. However, I’ve been itching to upload something for a while so hopefully that signifies the end of this blogging ‘meh’.

Who doesn’t love a cupcake and a cuppa in the evening, while watching your fave show on the telly? I love baking and Netflix have added all seasons of The Great British Bake Off so to say I’m living my best life would be an understatement. I have been absolutely addicted to it recently and it has really given me the ‘baking bug’. Sooooo, I’ve decided that I’m gonna start a wee recipe book (something I can give to my kiddies) and bake far more often! Continue reading “Kinder Bueno Cupcakes”
It seems that I can’t go for a walk without the heavens opening up and it bucketing down rain on me, but if that’s the path that was chosen for me, so be it.
A bit of rain never did anyone any harm (I think) so walking about in it is probs the least of my worries. I won’t lie though, it’d be nice to go for a walk in the sunshine for once… just a suggestion?

This post is really different from what I would normally write about. It doesn’t really fit in nicely anywhere, but I really want to write it, so I’m sticking it into the Lifestyle category and calling it a day. This post is sorta an appreciation post… for my dog.

I tend to do a lot of these posts, but I love walking and getting out in nature, so why not? This week myself, my sister and my beloved dog took a trip to Downhill Forest, and despite the weather, it was great! Continue reading “Wednesday Walks”
