Long Time No See – Life Update


It’s been a while since I last blogged. Quite a long while actually. It’s been a month since my last post, and it was a month between the one before that too. So yeah, fair to say posts have been pretty sporadic this year. Why? Many reasons, but that doesn’t matter now. All that matters is that I’m back!

I though I should fill you in with some of the things that have happened in the last few months. To be honest, nothing much of note has happened, but there are a few little tidbits to share.

New tattoo

I got tattooed again! I’ve been wanting a Wednesday Addams tattoo for a while, so I saved my pennies and finally did it last month.

Wednesday Addams Tattoo

How badass is she? I LOVE Wednesday Addams, and think the tattoo is just perfect. I got it tattooed on my thigh, which was an experience to say the least. Usually when it comes to tattoos, I’m quite good at taking the pain. But MY GOD did this hurt? It was worth the pain though. It’s also given me a bit of confidence to wear skirts and shorts again too, which is massive because I’ve been in jeans everyday for almost two years.

Evidence of me in shorts. I’ve put on quite a bit of weight in the last few years, from a 10 to a 14, and I’ve felt uncomfortable about it for a while. That’s why I’ve been hiding my legs away. So YAY to new found confidence!

Good Weather

Good weather in the UK, who knew such a thing existed? We’ve had some amazing weather recently. We had a block of about three weeks of warm sunshine in may, and then it’s happened again over this last week. Let’s hope it continues over the summer holidays! We’ve made the most of the good weather with beach cleaning days, ice cream and trips to the sea-side and the amusements.

New Hobby

I’ve taken up a new hobby: Streaming on Twitch. For those who don’t know, Twitch is a site where people can play video games and live stream it for the world to watch. I’ve been a gamer for as long as I can remember. I can remember playing Sonic the Hedgehog as a child and instantly falling in love. I’ve been in to gaming ever since! Nothing much has changed really, just now when I play games I do it live over the internet so other people can watch. Being a blogger with a youtube channel has helped, as I have a bit of experience in front of a camera. Doing it live is a different ball game though, I’m generally used to pre-recording my videos. With Twitch, it’s real time, so it’s a new challenge.

My husband streams too, he has done for a few years now. He recently did a 24HR charity stream which was good fun, although tiring for him. I helped, but didn’t do a full 24 hours, I’m not that keen yet! Anyway, I’m loving it so far, the twitch community I’ve been introduced to have been lovely, and I look forward to the next few months as a streamer!

And that’s you just about up to speed! The kids break up from school today which means I’m sure the blog will be turning in to a bit of a summer diary for the next week while. I hope you all have a fantastic weekend in the lush weather!
