The Weekend Blog (Vol.76)
10th October 2015
I’ve been a little quiet on the blog and on social media this week. Allow me to explain.
Sometimes, it all gets too much. I realised last week that I was spending so much time working on my blog that I had no time to indulge in my other hobbies, and to just relax after work.
I was spending my lunch breaks replying to comments. I was writing posts on my phone during my commute. I was coming home from work, switching on the computer, and working on my blog until about 7 or 8pm at night. Only then would I start to wind down and spend some time with Tyrone.
Let’s face it, that’s a bit over the top. It was as if my entire life evolved around my blog, and for some people this might be great. For me, not so much.
I love blogging but it was starting to become a real chore. Things that I previously enjoyed about blogging were becoming monotonous.
I’ve decided that I’m going to relax my schedule of posting three times a week. Some weeks I might feel super productive and manage to publish three posts. Some weeks I might feel uninspired and unmotivated, and so I might only blog once or twice.
Also, The Weekend Blog may not always be a weekly feature. If I’ve had a particularly boring week I might not write about it. Because, let’s face it, my last couple of Weekend Blogs have been as dull as dishwater (sorry if you enjoyed them!).
Less pressure means a happier Holly and (hopefully) a better blog, because I won’t be posting crap!
Anyway, time for a little summary of my week.
I’ve been at my new job for nearly a month, and I’m still really enjoying myself. On Friday myself and the rest of the web team went out to lunch at Host; a restaurant in the city centre that serves a variety of Asian food. I was told I had to try the Chicken Katsu Curry, and I was glad I did because it was delicious!
Today Tyrone and I packed a picnic and went off in search of the Liverpool to Leeds canal. We had never been before, which is crazy considering how close we live to it. I’m originally from Shropshire, and my home town is quite famous for its canal, but the Liverpool to Leeds canal wasn’t quite as pretty. It’s much more industrial. However, we still had a lovely long walk and I took a few photos along the way.
Next week I’m off to see Hairspray at the theatre with my friend Becky, and I’m so excited! I saw it about 7 years ago on the West End, but it’s my favourite musical and I’m looking forward to seeing it again.
Have a great weekend!
