2016 and Where have I been?!

Hello... Its been a while, huh?
Well first off, Happy 2016!!!
I hope everybody had an awesome new years. Secondly, Where have I been?

I was debating weather to do a post explaining myself, but a quick glance at my stats revealed some traffic activity (how?! And Thanks!) and since I'm now a bit rusty on blogging, this was a good way to get me back into it. So why did I stop this little hobby of mine for a month or so, well the age old excuse: life. More specifically for me personally, Xmas. I'm not a Xmas person.

I don't know what it is but I just cant seem to get excited about it; Maybe its because there are no children in my already quite small family, I don't know? Don't get me wrong, I'm by no means a Scrooge, I buy gifts for all my friends and family, there was a tree in my house and I always make an effort to see people etc but I always feel a lot of pressure at that time of year. Not to mention, I actually work over xmas. Quite a lot :( My job makes me very tired and being around so many people in a day was enough to make me want to go straight home and chill out and not bother with anything. So that's exactly what I did. I pretty much slacked off everything- from blogging, to making sure my bills were paid (bad adulting, I know)

I did actually have a few posts planned, (you'll see those soon) but once I was in this mind-frame, I just scared myself out of even turning on my laptop. Also festive themed blog posts were everywhere and I feel I couldn't really contribute anything xmassy and heart warming in fear I'd just naturally come across negative, so thought it best to just avoid everything. Proper adult right here guy's ;)

But with some gentle encouregment from Jon, plus a pending credit card bill, everything is back on track and I've got loads to blog about now. It might take me a while to get back into my 'regular' on/off 2 posts a week streak, but that's what I'm aiming for! Wish me luck xx
