I’m back, I’m on another break from blogging, I’m back, and then I’m on another break. I seem to be going round an endless circle that won’t stop: no matter how hard I try to break this bad habit school seems to have got the better of me yet again, so I must apologise for that! 😂
Finally, the well deserved Easter break has begun (well, actually it began last Friday…) and so hopefully I’m back for good! I am pre-warning you that I have my Year 10 Summer exams coming up in a few weeks, so I will probably be gone again for a week or two then as the teachers are definitely piling on the pressure, but don’t worry as after that it’ll be ‘Hello Blogging!’ again!
So, where have I been? There’s lots I feel I need to tell you, to explain my absence and to help you understand my life and what’s been going on recently. I also have always said from the start that I need to be honest to and with my readers, as it means no ‘secrets’ or things I can’t tell you, etc, and as I feel it helps you to understand me as a person better.
Firstly, I need to tell you that in February, one of my step-aunts passed away. This was a shock to me but mainly to my extended family. I know it sounds bad, but I didn’t even know she was ill at the time. I went to Emma’s funeral in March, and seriously it was such a sad occasion and made a very emotionally draining, hard day. 😢 It was really hard to see my step-nana (my step-aunts mum) so upset, but I was glad I went to pay my respects and also because it made my step-nana pleased that I had come, and for that I was grateful. I know that Nana will be finding the coming years hard and I do hope that gradually the pain will get easier for her 😘.
Also in February, we had a mini (and I mean tiny) fire in our house. We were so lucky as my mum spotted it when there was barely a flame, and also because of the speed that the firefighters reacted with as well as their talent & skill. I am so grateful to the crews that came to put out our fire, especially as the damage is so minimal. Yes, we do now have a small hole in our roof, but no-one was hurt and it could’ve been so much worse. I know that the firefighters that came to our house won’t be reading this, but I still want to say a BIG thank you to each of the firefighters that came. ✨ Without your speed & skill I could be here in a very different situation- you saved our house & livelihood, so thank you very much for that.
There we are, those are two minor but major (if that makes sense) things that happened in my life in the past few months. This, along with schoolwork have meant that I’ve just been far too busy for blogging. It’s sad as I still have had ideas for posts every so often, but I just haven’t had the chance to write them yet!
So, what’s going to be in store for Autumn’s Angle for the rest of the month? 😊
Well, I don’t really have a clear direction or plan in which I want to go yet, but I’m thinking of some more light hearted posts, maybe some reviews or more lifestyle based posts. I really don’t know the direction as to which my posts will be going yet but I do feel as if a more lighthearted, lifestyle or crafty/ snail mail route might take over this Spring, but we’ll see! The question is:
What type of posts would you most like to see? (please let me know in the comments! 💚)
Anyway, I hope you will excuse my absence once again, but I hope you know that I am trying my best to re-immerse myself back into the blogging world! (and sorry for the messy, a bit all-over-the-place post 😂)
That’s all for today,
