Writer's block

Hey guys,

First off I want to say I'm sorry i haven't written anything in about 3 months, i guess I went on a kind of hiatus from writing because I was pretty ill for a while and was in a bit of a crossroads career-wise where I didn't know what to do with my life. I didn't feel like writing anything because I put a lot of pressure on myself to make this into more than just a hobby and it led to me resenting my little space on the internet.
But I've realised how much I miss this, just writing about things because I want to, not because I feel I should. I'm going to write for the joy it gives me and not care where it takes me.
I went to London last week for work and I think thats when I realised that there's still more life to live outside my little house and village. I used to dream of travelling the world and writing about beautiful things whilst wearing equally beautiful things but after i got married I kind of got caught up in the romance of having my own house and waking up next to M and my ambition seemed to fade because all I wanted to do was to become a housewife and nest and look after my husband. None of these are bad things and are still things I love to do but I've still got much more I want to accomplish and dreams I want to fulfil so new dreams can take their place.

There is a great quote that sums up my feelings just now:

So hopefully this explains why I've been so silent this past while but I'm back and very much raring to go!
