Winter Blues.

I don't think it's just me that will agree on the fact that colder weather is kind of sucky. The lack of daylight makes me not want to get up of a morning and leaves me feeling drained by early evening. Along with all the nasty bugs that get passed around, especially working in a retail environment.

Towards the end of last year I was really unwell. I won't bore you with the details but during that time I was left to think about my little piece of the internet, the one thing I'm really and truly proud of. Even if it's just a drop in the ocean compared to others and their achievements.

I start blogging again come the new year and I was really enjoying it. I had so many ideas floating around in my head and for the first time in ages I truly fell in love with writing again. Though I work a full time job that can often take a lot out of me, I was back doing something I loved. Even the frantic scheduling the night before when I realised I didn't have a post ready to go live the next morning.

It was all going wonderfully until I was struck down with a sickness bug. I had to take a little time off work, which I mostly spent sleeping and trying to keep food down. Since then I've been stuck in such a funk that I can't seem to get out of. I've been struggling to get back on top of things and carry on as before.

There's something about the longer, lighter, drawn out days that just help with feeling more motivated. With just a little over a month until the first day of spring, I can't say I'm not relishing the opportunity for more hours of daylight.

And so I thought I would ease myself back into writing with this little update post. I write this after having the most wonderful Valentine's (the first I've ever had) and life is being really rather kind to me.
