Where Have You Been?

*Watches as tumbleweed blows over TinyPaintPot*


So my sloth pictures didn't seem to quite make it onto my blog (although that doesn't mean to say they never will) but when faced with hundreds upon hundreds of photos to edit, resize and upload, I decided to flee the scene and jump ship for a while... 

Shortly after abandoning nearly all of my social media outlets, I started volunteering at a lovely little Primary School and finally started making waves on my, *fingers crossed*, future career. A month passed, I gained over 160hrs of experience (I was there practically every day - I liked it that much) and now school is over for the Summer. I was up at 5am, back home at 5pm and falling asleep by 9pm, which left for very little time in between to do, well, anything!

Having said that, I have quite enjoyed a mini-break from these things. It has given me a new perspective, some new ideas and hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things now that I have some free time on my hands.

Blogging is supposed to be fun, after all, and while I can appreciate it is how some people make a living, it just isn't that necessary for me to blog every day and promote it every hour of said day. Although it is lovely to see your blog grow and receive emails from people who read it, not blogging for a while isn't the end of the World, nor will it ever be, for me.

One thing for sure is that this break has definitely made me admire those that do hold down a full time job and still blog. Kudos to you, my friends. Kudos to you.

Anyway, I hopefully wil have lots of interesting things to share over the Summer before starting at school once again.

Maybe I will just pick a sloth picture that expresses how I'm feeling that day and attach it to the end of every post? Yes?
Today I am HANGRY. As always.

So, how have you been?
Peace, love & sloth snouts


  1. I love sloth pics.

    Welcome back xxx

    1. Thank you! I'm working on the photos now :) so they will definitely be up soon xx

  2. Yay, glad to see that you're back to blogging again! Looking forward to more posts :) xx

    1. Thanks Amy! :) I think its about time. Really enjoyed writing this post and scheduling my next! Xx

  3. Yaaaay so glad to see you blogging again :) I completely understand why you had a mini hiatus. Blogging should never be forced, it should just come to you and if you have other things going on in your life, you shouldn't feel bad for not posting :) I always get confused when people go "SORRY I HAVEN'T POSTED IN 2 DAYS" because at the end of the day, the readers who matter will stay, continue to read and support them :) I'm so happy to see your career has started to pick up, sounds like you really really enjoyed it!

  4. Yay Glad to have you back blogging. Loving the sloth pic :)
    I know what you mean, I def could not blog that much with a full time job!

  5. I have only just discovered your blog this evening and I love it! I'm 2 weeks in to my first post as a primary school teacher and already i'm worried about how much I will be able to blog! Working in a school is great but incredibly exhausting. I hope your career progresses quickly and smoothly :)

  6. Each word composed has charmed its group of onlookers in the most one of a kind way.


Thank you so much for stopping by, I reply, read & appreciate every comment left!
