Bless me Father, for I have sinned... (and not just by eating that cupcake)

It has been 35 days since my last outfit post. It has been 8 days since my last blog post. It has been even longer since I actually posted anything of substance.

There is a reason. Reasons, actually. However, this blog is my happy place and I do not want to go against that by talking about what's been going on this year. Suffice to say, my head is a lot more sorted now than it has been for months. My holiday in Spain was just what I needed to clear my head. A bit of space, a lot of thinking and a few revelations later and... I'm back.

And I have a plan. A plan for infinite happiness, if you will.

A lot of it is not for blog consumption. Not yet anyway. A lot of is long term and currently fairly intangible. But, for now, I'm going to:-

-- Cook from scratch. I LOVE cooking but, for some reason, I've barely cooked at all over the last few months. Unless I'm having someone round I tend to just pick. Or, even worse, pick up a takeaway menu. Not anymore. Last night was smoked haddock risotto with a poached egg. Tonight is turkey bolognese with wholemeal pasta. I feel so much better about myself when I'm eating well and not just shovelling rubbish into my face.

-- Exercise more. That age old resolution. However I never feel better than when I'm doing exercise regularly. I need to dust off my trainers, get out the horrifyingly unflattering dri-fit leggings and RUN.

-- Blog more. Yes, normal service WILL be resumed. Pinky swear.

-- Take more photographs. I used to take my camera everywhere but recently it's rarely left my dining room shelf. I love taking photographs. I love playing about with them after. I want to create things and see the beauty in the world again.

Because there is so much beauty. Even in the darkest hour, there is light. And I think I might just have switched it back on again.
