looking forward

I spent the later part of the week in swansea visiting the little brother, it was so nice to get away from the everyday home life and drag myself away from my shop and my blog. Sometimes its so easy to get stagnant and hard on yourself about what you do. Whilst down in wales, we ate lots of lovely food, walked to pretty places and hung out and laughed a considerable amount, God i miss the little rascal!
I spent today making lists, reading and writing, trying to ready myself for my week back at work. It was a lonely one, spent reading poetry in the bath and drawing but I think it was much needed.

Thank you all for your lovely comments about my not so new hair, really mean't a lot and i am still adjusting it takes so my time and effort to do, i do miss not having to brush my hair, lazy ella.



  1. Take the time you need, wherever you need :) I wish you the best! I missed your posts though. Hugs and kisses!xx


  2. Oh lovely. I don't know the details of what happened with you and this person, but I'm sure it can't have been easy, but you have done the right thing on focusing on you- and I'm sure soon he'll understand that he needs something that isn't you and understand.
    And there is definitely something about time spent with little brothers- they make everything awesome!
    Lots of love your way x

  3. You're right about time being a good healer. It's always awful when someone close to you is in pain and you can't do anything to help. Nice to hear you spent your day to yourself though, definitely what you needed! Your hair looks fantastic and very healthy, suits you immensely too.

  4. I've been feeling a bit off at the moment, in terms of where i am in life but I don't feel like I can talk about it.

  5. I'm so sorry that you've had a hard past few days Ella! I hope the rest of the week is much better for you sweetie!! xoxo

  6. Wishing you the best Ella. <3 I hope the week gets better for you. I've had a few hard things happen recently too, and only through experience, can I say that there is always a rainbow at the end of a storm <3

    Xx - I'm here if you need to talk


  7. I'm a helper, a peacemaker, I like to make people happy and it is so hard to switch that off sometimes and think about what it is I want for myself. It took me a while to rid myself of a couple of very negative presences in my life but it was worth the sadness, I really hope you don't feel guilty for your honesty too long my lovely. It's going to sound all sorts of pretentious but be kind to yourself

  8. I hope everything gets alright soonxx
