I’ve had two previous blogs in the past, Seventy Seven Broadway and Hightops & Heels and I loved writing in both of them.. but of course things in life happen that end up being much more important than keeping a blog. I’m hoping this one will help be a creative outlet in what I can only describe as a time in my life where I don’t know what the hell is going to happen.
I’m now twenty four and back at home for the first time in six years, living in my parents back room with my eight month old daughter. I never ever wanted to come back home but when my relationship broke down I really had no other option. Being a mother is hard, anyone who tells you different is a liar (or probably pays someone to bring up their child). Along with the financial situation of the country being dyer and jobs being so scarce I needed to be somewhere where I could still give my daughter the best. Maternity leave is now over and I’m about to start my hunt for a part time job that will allow me to save up to get my own place. I miss having my own place so much, I’m far too independent to live at home again.
It’s funny how much changed in the six years since I left home. Six years ago it was freshers week and I was finally out on my own. Young free and single. Since then I’ve had three serious boyfriends, lived with two of them, had a baby with one of them. I’ve visited Greece twice and New York twice, once on my own. I’ve made friends, I’ve lost friends. I’ve became an aunty. I’ve moved house a whopping six times. I’ve had a few jobs, some I loved and some I hated. I’ve dyed my hair, grown my hair, cut my hair. I’ve had two pet gerbils and a pet cat. And like everyone, I’ve had some absolutely awesome times along with some of the worst times of my life.
I have a lot of plans for the future. I want to work my ass off to make them all work out and hopefully this blog will help me work everything out.
I’m hoping to write about fashion, cookery, books and probably life in general. I’m unsure if anyone will read it but if anyone does, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I will writing it.
