I have recently started a writing course, which is going to help me with my next book. I think I have already mentioned in previous blogs about my first published book which was last year. I am now looking to write my second book which I have started, I get so excited when I sit down and either type new ideas or write them, I feel like I have so much to get out. I enjoy the buzz it gives me, I feel writing is endless, there literally isn’t any limits on what you can write.
This weekend I haven’t managed to do a great deal of writing as it’s my parents 30th Wedding Anniversary so it’s been nice to spend time with them and chillout. We have days out planned and meals booked with family and friends, which will be fun, they deserve all the fuss and attention as they really are the best people I know.
When I don’t write, I do try to read and at the moment I am reading ‘Jane Costello’ – Bridesmaids, it is hilarious and I am only part way in. I love books that literally get you laughing out loud, they are the best kind. Highly recommend!!
I have also been a bit obsessed with new clothes, so at the start of the year I decided to completely empty out my wardrobe and draws and start a fresh, this took 3-4 attempts at being really really brutal. Firstly I started in the wardrobe, I went through each item of clothing vigorously which was great as some tops and trousers I did have I hadn’t actually seen for months if not years. I emptied it of tops, jeans, dressy trousers, coats and light jackets. The first around I think I had 2 big piles of things I didn’t want, most of which was still in great condition so I took them around the local charity shop, the rest went in the recycling bin for clothes.
The second time around I looked through my chest of drawers and third wardrobe cupboard, this I managed to get rid of older PJ’s, worn out jogging bottoms, old t-shirts, socks etc. That time I had another 2 piles to throw away. The third and fourth time were pretty much the same, only there was another 3 piles I threw away. So I was now left with absolutely nothing almost, the following weekend I went shopping and bought over £200-£300 worth of clothes, shoes, bags, accessories. You name it….I bought it!
It feels good and very much needed, it had been so long since I had actually took a step back and cleaned everything out. There are still a few things here and there that I do need, but I am buying them as and when I find things I like. Shoes and bags seem to be my downfall, I have so many (I did get rid of 4 bags and 3 pairs of shoes also!) but I can’t seem to help myself purchasing more.
I am enjoying buying all new clothes and revamping my clothing range, it’s a lot of fun, so if you’re thinking of doing this but feel like I did (scared) like I wanted to cry and hang on to everything I had, but you have to be strong ladies and get started, it’s only still very early in the year, go upstairs and look through everything you have, if you haven’t worn it for over 6 months it’s time to say bye to it.
Send over some comments on any of the above or if like me you have just emptied your whole clothing collection and also feel amazing for it 🙂
Thanks for reading x
