The Not-So Dramatic Return.

Hi, Hello, Bonjour.
It’s been a while hasn’t it? Some of you probably noticed a lack of content throughout 2018, some of you probably didn’t but it’s cool, we’re all friends here.

The Not-So Dramatic Return of Sweet Allure.

To say that 2018 has been a rollercoaster is a pretty big understandment. It’s been pretty much a shitshow. Remember when I wrote back at the start of the year that 2017 was the hardest year? Well LOL, Tarnya you idiot, you were wrong because 2018 topped that with avengence.

So lets just have a little overview shall we?

My husband left me on February 15th, yep that’s right, he waited till the day after valentines day, fucking brilliant.
I had to move out, into a tiny room in a houseshare with a woman who’s little dog hated me and growled at every single movement I made.
I lost 1 and a half stone.
Started a new job role.
Got the arm tattoo I’ve always wanted.
Realised how incredibly lucky I was to get out of a relationship I was actually miserable in but probably never would have noticed unless he left me.
Met someone new, who legit, has opened my eyes to what actually being in an amazing relationship feels like.
Went to Friends Fest.
Had a road trip to Wales.
Made amazing new friends.
Moved into a new flat with a friend, who doesn’t bark at me, so that’s awesome.
And I’ll be spending Christmas in Scotland.
And that pretty much sums up my 2018.

That explains the complete lack of content here on my blog. My creativity and desire to do anything pretty much stopped for months on end. I tried so desperately to keep it going, as for a long time my blog was my escape from reality but honestly, I had nothing to really talk about.

However my desire to write and create has been creeping back recently and it felt so wrong just pretending like nothing had changed and picking up where I left off. I was also not ready to admit to the world that my marriage was a complete failure and all the effort I poured into keeping it alive went completely unreciprocated, until now.

I’m coming through the other side of the messy breakdown of a 5 year relationship and leaving a job I detested. Although that’s not to say I’m ever going to be really over it. It’s been a very confusing, dramatic and enlightening year this year and for the first time in a long time I can’t wait for new year and what adventures it brings. I’m extremely happy right now and I can’t wait to share my new ideas and adventures with you all again, I have plenty planned!

So if any of my readers are reading this, thank you from the bottom of my heart for sticking around and joining me on this mad journey we call life. I’m back and sticking around this time.
