A Day at Home

It’s been about 6 weeks since I left my job. This is something I had been thinking about for a while, and once the decision was made one of the things I was most looking forward to was having more time to devote to blogging.

Am I spending so much time in other stories that I have less time to reflect on what’s happening in my own life? I don’t spendĀ all my free time reading (I still watch plenty of youtube videos and play lots of games…), so I don’t think it’s necessarily a time issue. I haven’t spent much times engaging in other forms of creativity either, this month. A little bit of colouring, but no sewing of any kind, and my bullet journal hasn’t been receiving a lot of attention…Read More »
