Where have I been: going AWOL and losing my blogging mojo

I had a little shock today when I visited my blog. It has been well over a year since I last blogged! 15 months to be exact. Whilst I knew it had been a while, it completely took me by surprise just how long it had actually been. How did this happen? Where have I been?

Well, a lot as changed in my life in the past 15 months and it all coincides with around the time I last posted. So for a quick life update (elevator pitch-style): I finally got back into one of my long-standing hobbies and passions (musical theatre), I split with my boyfriend of almost five years, moved out of the house we own together, started renting a tiny one bedroom flat on my own in West Didsbury and changed jobs (avec promotion :D). And I've lost a lot of weight (about 4 stone).

Phew. Just writing that has made me feel tired and slightly stressed, but it goes some way to explaining why I've gone AWOL. Most of the changes have been for the better, but all of them have made me grow as a person (eww, cliched jargon alert) and, to be honest, just grow up. I've been super busy with my new life and the changes kind of took it out of me; completely taking my blogging mojo with them.

Lucky for you all, I'm back. Expect a full, boring life update on each of the above things in turn (sorry!) as well as travel reviews from last year including: Cyprus, New York, Boston and The Algarve.

And as for this year. I only went and ticked off a huge bucket list destination - South Africa. So expect lots on that. As well as info on my return to the stage and as how I managed the weight loss.

So brace yourselves. This is my comeback - and it's going to be good. Peace out.
