I'm still here!


It's been over 5 months since I last blogged but I am still here even if you can't see me. 
I've just been in temporary hiding in my whirlwind of a world. 
Because my world got turned upside down a bit since November and a silly trip to IKEA with Ian. 
Who has an unintentional first date in IKEA for goodness sake?
Well would I ever do anything the conventional way?

Ian and I have been friends (F1) on Facebook for few years and had met a couple of times when he helped me out with electrical stuff but I didn't see this one coming....I don't think either of us did. 

It was a little stressful at the start due to circumstances that were a little out of our control, a few bumps in the road but we've fallen into something that feels very comfortable in just 15 weeks.
I can't believe it is only 15 weeks!!

I am busier than I've ever been trying to juggle my old life, my family and a new relationship but I also think I am the happiest I have ever been. 
He is the reason I smile at my phone like an idiot and giggle out loud.
He's my blue crayon and I've waited a very long time for him.

So here's briefly what I've been up to:
Christmas and New Year was lovely but passed in a blur. 
I had my first ever real Valentines date at the grand age of 47yrs old. 
Beth got her dream West End job and we helped her move out to East London into her first home away from my nest. 
I've been studying since Xmas and after 30 years and 1 failed attempt, I managed to pass my Level 2 Maths exam.

Busy times ahead:
I'm still dancing and am looking forward to a Salsa weekend away in Majorca in May and a Kizomba workshop coming up soon. 
Ian and I have a holiday booked for the Summer and lots of other fun plans booked in between.

And challenges:
Studying for my HLTA
At some point I am going to have to drive to his flat in Watford (eeeeek)
Trying to write my blog regularly again.
And I need to try harder to have some proper down time and look after myself better as I know I'm in danger of burnout if I don't.

Sorry #Crazygang I have missed so many #Wordonthestreet posts, weekends have been busy and I will try my best to keep up with the new F1 season and admin. 

Who knows what the future has in store.....I'm just going to enjoy each step as it happens.

So if you don't see me around as much as you did, I'm still here, smiling at my phone like a love struck teenager!
