#BEDN Day 1: Something New and Personal

#BEDN Day 1: Something New and Personal

Hello to another new month. I’ve decided to take part in #BEDN which is Blog Every Day in November. It’s only been just over a month since I last posted but it feels like so much longer. I’ve been a rut. A blogging rut. I’ve been on a bit of a break since I got my office job back at the end of May. I was just so exhausted from writing and fully lost my mojo for a bit there. Even though I’ve had plenty of things to write about, I just avoided the whole thing completely.

So here I am, taking a challenge and doing the opposite of what I did for this blog in October. Instead of not blogging at all for a month, I’m going to be blogging every day. I’m interested to see if I’ve still got it – by getting back to basics and just writing for the sake of writing.

Onto today’s subject – something new and personal. 

To any new readers; hello there. I’m Diane. Awkwardly waves. I’m 30, married to my best friend who live with in Manchester with our two cats. Since I was a child I was used to moving house a lot (25 times to be precise) but as of 2016, I bought my first home and am staying put.

To my older readers; thanks for sticking around. I am still here.

So something new. A lot of things really are new in my life. The main thing being that after two and a half years of being self employed, I jumped back into full time employment. It was just the kick I needed after a few months of my mental health taking a nosedive. Is that personal enough for you? Awesome, both boxes ticked.

It’s been great for me to be back in a routine. Especially one that forces me to get out of bed in the morning. The job itself is mentally interesting enough that I’m not bored but not so full on that I get too stressed. It’s a perfect balance. Also it’s been so nice to have a steady pay check. My husband Topher and I have been able to replace so many things in the house that were on their last legs as well as have nice meals out and save up for holidays. Oh and have savings for the first time in multiple years!

Anyway that’s enough rambling today. Are you taking part in BEDN – say hi in the comments!

Let’s do this November.
