It’s been so long since I blogged here. I’m not even sure where to start! I suppose it makes some kind of sense to fill you in on what I’ve been up to since I last blogged.
Since my last post I managed to hold my job down until my boyfriend was offered a job in a city up north. He decided to take this job leaving me with a few weeks to decide whether to stay or go with him. I went with him. Since the move I have started a new job and absolutely hated it. I struggled to fit in and constantly felt like I was going to fall asleep (it was that boring). My managers failed to understand my concerns regarding fitting in and coping with some aspects of the role because of the aspergers syndrome, resulting in me handing in my notice.
After leaving my job I felt relieved to be out of that sickening office environment with strange people that seemed happy to work never ending hours doing the same thing over and over again. I told myself that I would find a new job as soon as possible. Deep down I knew I wouldn’t have the courage to actually work straight away. Anyway, weeks turned into months and I felt myself feeling more and more disconnected with the world with each passing day. I knew that would happen though. Depression is always lurking over my shoulder, just waiting for the right time to creep back in.
So that brings me to this present day. My boyfriend and I bought our first house in December and have been decorating since. I’ve actually learned a thing or two over the past year; I really enjoy upcycling old furniture, decorating and interior design. Well, I knew I always loved being creative but since moving into my own home I’ve completely transformed the place and love living here. I have also learnt that, although I am 4 hours away from my parents and friends, you can make a home anywhere. It doesn’t matter how far away you are from loved ones, as long as you’re with someone you love and trust, you can make home anywhere.
I have also started fostering dogs that are living in rescues/kennels. I have missed my dogs so much that are living with my parents and have always wanted to help in some way. I decided to foster from a rescue called The Senior Staffy Club as their dogs tend to be aged 8 or over and the thought of these old dogs living and sleeping in a kennel makes me sad. I am currently fostering a beautiful wise soul called Victor. He is 12 years old and still has loads of energy to burn. He has brought so much happiness to my life in the short space that we have been looking after him, he’s a precious boy.
I think that’s pretty much everything there. I have been using a Tumblr blog dolcefarniente-uk as of late if you would like to check that out too. I am hoping to blog as often as possible and stay in touch with you all along the way. Have a lovely weekend.
Love & Light,
