So I've just had a fabulously relaxing holiday and I'm not yet out of the I'm-so-chilled-I-just-need-to-lie-by-the-beach stage after a break away.
I miss it so much already. I can't fault a week away from my home with sun and a pool. As much as I love where I live and the people, time away is valuable. It's time to just relax without the internet, without stress and without thinking about stresses to come. One of my favourite things is turning up somewhere hot and being dressed a little too English-weather-ly, changing into swimming gear and getting in a pool and that's exactly what I did. I can't tell you how good it felt. I read a couple of books, listened to new and amazing albums and sunbathed to my heart's content as the weather was fab. Laaaaarvely. More importantly I ate until I wanted to stop. For me, that's the dream. I ate oh so much. This past year has been a hectic one for all of my family and so it was nice to have time together: sit by the pool together; eat together; be together.
On holiday I didn't think about college or university and because once I think of an idea about my blog, my mind will start writing it and I'll get very stressed, I barely thought about blog content. However, I also get randomly inspired, which I don't mind one bit. One series I have, A Cynical Romantic Sees Love very much so relies on a spontaneous moment that has caught my eye and made me smile and kept my eyes focused (in a not-so-creepy way) on the moment. Sometimes I get very stressed because they're my favourite posts to write but because I wasn't thinking about it, I saw one - and possibly two - moments that I will be publishing soon. I'm super excited about this because I love these moments so much. It actually taught me to not stress about finding one of these perfect moments because they will come along!
Although I've got that "ugh I'm back home" feeling, I'm also so refreshed and enjoying summer and my thoughts and plans for my blog have excited me, so, for now, I look forward to the next break with the family!
