After a bit of a disappearance throughout August, I'm trying to get back on track with blogging. My post about trying to stay on board was evidently true, as I've just not been feeling like blogging over the past month and I've felt a bit unmotivated because of my lack of timetable and general schedule.
Over the past month I've basically just been doing things that I've found fun, and making the most of having that time readily available to me. I've been on some days out, to various National Trust places, including Mottisfont and Stonehenge. I've had a few nice days out in Oxford with various friends, and have been out to eat and for drinks several times. I've been to see one of my uni friends, who's heading off on a year abroad. I've also been working every weekend, as well as reading basically everyday and starting to plan my dissertation. All of these things have just added up time wise, and my blog has been pushed to the back of my mind in all honesty.
We also very sadly lost our dog at the beginning of the month, and I think that just left me a bit too brokenhearted to really think about the blog, as I would usually sit on the floor with him whilst I wrote posts. He was pretty old for a Labrador and had been getting slower and slower over the past year, so it was kind of expected, but that of course didn't make it any easier. The important thing was that we didn't want him to suffer, and he lived a very full and loved life. He was spoiled rotten and I wouldn't have changed a thing. There's just a bit of a Prince shaped hole in my heart and has been for this past month, and I'm sure it's never going to go away. But I'm glad that he's in a better place.
Now, I'm very much thinking about blogging again, and I'm ready to make a proper effort to get back to it with regular posts, starting with September. They'll probably be a few back to uni posts, a couple of day trips that I've got planned, and I think a favourites to round off the month.
I'm looking forward to the routine that'll come with going back to uni, and I think that will get me back to planning my time more efficiently.
I hope you've all had a lovely summer, and you'll be hearing from me again very soon.
Until next time.
