Where have a been? Why haven’t I blogged for months? What’s been going on?

Monday, December 24, 2018

I guess time ran away from me, I’ve still been around on social media and I’ve been posting on YouTube so if you want a full update it’s worth checking out my weekend vlogs and or my Vlogmas videos.

In the early hours of this morning, I published my final Vlogmas 2018 video and it seems a bit strange not having anything to edit. I thought I’d do a blog post instead and it seems strange to be typing rather than cutting out my swears and sneezes.

2018 has been a bit of a year, social media wise (is it weird to talk about this first as if it’s a big thing?) I think I’ve lost followers on every single social media account I have this year and it seemed the more I tried to share and “promote” myself the more followers I lost. I really don’t care if 10 or 100 people follow but it does feel sad to see numbers drop, especially when you open something like Instagram and see 5 new followers pop up but the overall numbers have gone down by 10. Silly really but while I see people grow and I mean GROW. I can’t help feeling a bit crap. My photo quality is bad, I don’t have a theme but I don’t really want to do all of that.

I realise a lot of apps have had mass clear-outs and have taken measures to get rid of bots but 2019 I might not even make a note of my start figures (that’s a lie) I haven’t recorded a stat in months. I’m going to have a look now (covers eyes while excel loads)

It’s not too bad but look at 2017 figures and it’s not what I’d like to have seen

This isn’t what stopped me blogging, I’m not totally shallow but it’s part of being a blogger, vlogger whatever terms I’m going by these days.

Life has been busy, I’ve not felt well for about 2 years maybe a bit longer and I finally found a medical professional that has listened. Listened mostly, still not totally but we’re working on it. I’ve been tested for everything and I’ve got diabetes, something wrong with my liver. A referral for my ovaries and looking into sorting my head out as well as my high cholesterol.

As with everything it starts with weight loss, and with fear of being excommunicated from my plus size friends I’ve re-joined slimming world. I’ve lost about a stone and half so far and my blood test have shown improvement on the diabetes scale so that’s good. I’m not going to talk about slimming world too much but I do have a dedicated Instagram account so come and follow me over there for updates.

Work, well let say it makes me cry on a daily basis, I’ve got time off over Christmas and I’ve had to bring my laptop home I’ve got that much to do. I’m kind of hoping I haven’t got a charger for it but I do have stuff that needs to be done urgently so hmmm in a dilemma but the thought of work makes me cry let alone actually working. At the start of this year I said my aim was to get a new job and I did nothing about it. 2019 might have to change and I might have to start looking.
Other things that I haven’t done, I still haven’t been to London (to see the Queen or buy a Heat magazine) I didn’t get my trip to Disney Land Paris (I’m thinking of a Solo trip in February but not sure I’m brave enough)

Things haven’t been all bad, I did go on holiday to Mexico and Lanzarote which were both excellent holidays, if not very different.

I did get an Odeon Unlimited card and I have seen lots of films, I still haven’t got my moneys worth yet as I keep upgrading to premium seating and buying my mm tickets. I think when it expires, I might pay for her to have an unlimited card as well. The next film we’ll see if Mary Poppins Returns and I can’t wait.

I’m hoping for a good 2019 and I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year
