My First blog post

This is the post excerpt.

So today I’ve started typing. Today’s been an okay day. I went to work, came home and pretty much did nothing. Lovely to do once in a while. I’m aware at how much washing I have piling up and how many other productive things I could be doing right now. But at this moment in time I feel like typing. I keep thinking back to this time last year recently and how much things have changed. And they have changed quite a bit. I was at such a different point in my life 12 months ago. I was in the process of a break up from a long term, childish, insignificant relationship. Maybe insignificants the wrong word, I didn’t always think that at the time but I did always know it was never going anywhere and the day we finally broke up was tough but after a couple of weeks of feeling sorry for myself it felt like such a relief. So yeah, 12 months ago that was happening. I was also in the early stages of buying my house. Something I decided to do on my own and felt it was the right thing for me at the time. I loved my house so much from the first viewing. A small two bed new build which was perfect for me. It was a pretty stressful time with constant phone calls and emails as it is when purchasing a house. However it was also pretty exciting. I cannot quite remember off the top off my head when I passed my driving test but I do remember starting to look at cars this time last year and looking back now my expectations were way too high for a first car. I was also hoping to start college in the September to start an access course to study social work, that unfortunately didn’t end up happening. I think all in all I’d found a new lease of life and was quite unsure of what to do with myself. I look back to that time, the time when I couldn’t imagine life with another person, in another relationship. Or despite the fact I had started the process for buying my house and was looking at cars, I didn’t really realise what it would be like to become so dependent on your car and to live in this little house of mine on my own. And now I do imagine all those things because I have those things, I’m living that life and I can honestly say that the decisions I made roughly a year ago today were good decisions. Very good decisions in fact!!
