January 16th: Why I started blogging.

Hi readers,

As you may know from my previous posts, I’m a pretty sentimental person. So I thought I would remind myself why I started blogging.

I started blogging because I have been following bloggers for a long time. I always thought it looked fun and a means of escape. It looked like a positive thing to do for yourself.

It took a lot of confidence for me to start. But I’m so glad I’ve now done it. It’s something I can see myself doing for a long time,

Thank you for reading.

Take care Lauren x

2nd January: A big thank you!

Morning readers,

Was very happy when I see this morning that I had reached fifty followers! Also over 50 likes!

I would like to thank everyone who has taken their own time, to like, comment and follow my blog.

My advice to anyone who would like to start blogging is, take the leap of faith and enjoy it. The reaction you may get could be completely unexpected.

I’m looking forward to seeing how my blog progresses in the future, and where my blogging journey will take me.

Thank you for reading.

December 30: New Year Look Back Tag!

Hi readers,

I think most people have had an unexpected year this year. I thought this blog post would be a final reflection of 2020, then a move on and a clean slate. Also, I want to pick up some postives so I don’t think this year was all bad.

What did you do in 2020 that you’ve never done before?

I travelled to France and stayed in Paris for my twenty-first birthday. Also, I visited Disneyland for the first time.

What was last year’s New Year Resolution, how did you do?

I can’t remember setting resolutions, but I know that I was desperate to pass my driving test. After my sixth attempt, I finally passed during lockdown August 2020.

What would you like to have accomplished in 2020 that you didn’t get to?

Getting through 2020 itself feels like an accomplishment to me. I believe all should focus on what we have accomplished this year, and how well we have dealt with the circumstances.

What was your biggest achievement of the year?

It’s a difficult one its either getting my driving licence or passing my first Open University module.

What was the best thing you bought?

It’s going to strange weird, but knitting supplies. This year I learnt to knit, and it has kept me occupied during this year.

Did you travel anywhere memorable?

Paris in January, it seems like a lifetime ago now. I feel grateful that I did have a holiday this year.

Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned last year.

I’ve learnt never take anything or anyone for granted. The everyday things I have missed during lockdown has been a real lesson of how I should always apricate them.

If you could look back on one memory this year you wish you could relive, what would it be?

The memory I would like to relieve is missing my boyfriend’s birthday due to restrictions.

If you could change anything about the year you had, what would it be?

I don’t like this sort of questions. As I would always say I would change something, but would I be the person I am? I believe everything that happens to you is a life lesson.

Share something you’re looking forward to this year.

The summer and hopefully watching the Coronavirus impact go down.

Thank you for reading.

Take care Lauren x

27th December: A relaxing Christmas.

Hi readers,

All things considering my Christmas went pretty well. I spent the day with my family. Think I also eat a little too much food.

It seemed to be over within a flash. I can’t believe the countdown is officially over now. It seemed very weird not doing blogmas anymore. Now to look forward to hopefully a better new year.

Hope everyone had a safe and relaxing Christmas.

Wishing everyone the best.

Take care Lauren x

December 20th: How I’m dealing with not getting the Christmas I planned 2020.

Hi readers,

So I don’t think many people are getting the Christmas they planned this year. It hasn’t been an easy year. Now further disruption from announcements of tier four restrictions in the UK. It’s dishearting, but here is how I’m trying to cope and stay positive for Christmas 2020.

Video calling– As I am in a long-distance relationship, I know video calls can be a saviour. It’s comfort. I’m going to try calling and video calling as much as possible.

Trying to distract myself- I’m going to do as many indoor Christmas activities as possible.

Look forwards- There will be hopefully many more Christmases and occasions I will be able to celebrate.

Take one day at a time- When life gets too much I’m always trying to tell myself just take one day at a time.

Accept it’s okay to be upset– I’m not pressuring myself to be completely happy always. Life doesn’t work that way. It’s how I react and pick myself up is the main thing.

Thank you for reading

Take care Lauren x

November 14th: £55 million raised for Children in Need 2020

Hello readers!

Was delighted to find out that Children in Need managed, to raise a whopping £55 million last night.

It’s a record-breaker for the most money raised apparently. One positive from coronavirus, I think is its making people more charitable and grateful for what they have.

I’m sure the money will go to deserving causes. Every penny makes a difference when it comes to charity.

I assume Joe Wicks is taking a rest after his 24-hour session. He’s a money-raising machine! £1.5 million raised.

Enjoy your Saturday everyone.
