I'm Back

gif maker online

So it has been a while since i have written anything on here. I hope you like the photos from swansea, it is always lovely to get out of london for a bit isn't it? To be truthful I have felt a bit lost and the stress of work piling up made me forget why i loved blogging, it sort of started to feel like a chore and everything I wrote i wasn't happy with and at one point i was loosing 3-4 followers a day, i wasn't happy with my content and obviously my readers weren't, its funny how little things like that can really impact on your confidence. At one point I was actually avoiding logging onto blogger, I have never done that before, not entirely sure where my head was at. Anyway what I think I am trying to say is that I promise to make this little piece of internet a little bit more enjoyable in the future, its easy sometimes to become so compliance with things that you forget yourself sometimes, forgetting your focus and drive. But after a little while away I feel that I am in a better more happy place with myself and my blog. Not to mention I have dropped a dress size you should of seen my face in newlook when the jeans i wanted were far too big for me happy face.

  1. I can't believe people have been unfollowing your blog, the dumb ass's. You have to stop getting down about things like that cause you will drive yourself mad and make yourself ill. Do as your told ;) I always love reading your blog and you know once a week is fine to blog or even two...or even longer. I would never unfollow your blog.

    I can see you have lost weight in your face and well done me dear. I must get to grips with trying to lose weight and I know I will feel a lot better for it. I have been having a few to many sweet things especially the dolly Mixture, I forgot how yummy they were and haven't had them for years.

  7. You mustn't lose confidence over such things, people leaving your blog? How silly. I don't even have a blog but I come read yours all the time, just because I think you are brilliant and so creative. You inspire me all the time.

  9. Hi Ella! I just wanted to tell you that maybe you shouldn't focus on making us happy by writing your posts in a certain way; the reason we (at least I) come here is to see and learn a bit about you, so if you're having a bad time in your life, don't blame yourself for letting us down. We all have such periods.
