    I totally get your frustration, but, in my opinion, when it comes to your blog, only your real life matters. As much as we all love our blogs and blog friends and readers and all that, your real life comes first 🙂 Besides, I think everyone kind of expects people to drop off the radar around Christmastime, it’s expected to be stressful, haha! But I’m glad you ended up having a great holiday, and I’m glad you’re back 🙂

      Thanks! Ah no, I let everything go, although I realise it sounds like it was just the blog. I wanted to put it here as I wanted to share what’s been going on in life in general, especially as people in real life didn’t really notice a difference, but people joining in the chats etc did. You’re right though, real life definitely comes first. I hope you had a good holiday too 🙂 xx

    I’m so sorry for your loss. But I can understand why you’ve been away! It sounds like you’ve had so much going on. Don’t beat yourself up. Life expects a lot from us, and sometimes we can’t keep up. Sometimes I lie awake at night, thinking of all the things I need to do, and panicking about how I’ll find the time to do them all. Life’s crazy! Good to have you back, though. xx

    I agree with Erin, real life always takes priority over your blog. Plus it sounds like you’ve had a mountain of stuff happen; it’s no wonder you’ve felt stressed and not wanting to deal with any of it.

    Christmas is lovely when you’re all together in one place and playing happy families, but when you have to trek from one place to another it can start to feel like a chore that you’d just rather not bother with.

    So sorry to hear about you Grandma, especially a year after your Nan too. The time of year compounds things as well. How bloody rotten for you 🙁

    Glad you seem slightly brighter, and here’s to less stress in 2017 (and good luck with the flat, I know how maddening buying a home can be!) xx

      Yeah real life definitely takes priority, but I went off the radar a bit there too. Definitely feeling better now! You’re right about Christmas, I love going home for it, but when there’s tension at the same time it seems silly to bother.
      Thanks, I’m sure things will all be okay. Just all gets a bit much sometimes 🙂 hope you’re doing okay xx

      Aww thank you! This message made me so happy! I can’t imagine all the changes she must have seen in her life. Like now we expect technology to advance, but it wasn’t even a thing when she was young!
      She got to see her great great grandchildren too which must have been incredible 🙂 So appreciate this message. Love you xxxx

    Your grandmother sounds like an amazing woman, what an age, what a life she must have lived and what a family she must’ve had by the end. Sending lots of squishes your way xxxx
