At present I am feeling well and truly underwhelmed by life at the moment. Neither happy not sad, though when it does shift its usually in the direction of sad. Time is supposed to be this great healer but I'm beginning to wonder how much time will have to pass before I don't have the feelings I have. Distractions are all well and...

I don't know what you're feeling bummed about, but I'm sure that whatever it is, slowly you will find happiness. When I was going through a tough time, I found this quote that really stuck with me.

After a while, maybe weeks, maybe months, you'll find the waves are still 100 feet tall, but they come further apart. When they come, they still crash all over you and wipe you out. But in between, you can breathe, you can function. You never know what's going to trigger the pain. It might be a song, a picture, a street intersection, the smell of a cup of coffee. It can be just about anything...and the wave comes crashing. But in between the waves, there is life." <3

On the way to France for my training course in Bordeaux for a month. I can't wait! I'm going to really get my teeth into this place and enjoy everything that I can. It's somewhere I've wanted to go for a long time, I know I'm here to work but I fully intend to make the most of this time...

It has been ages since I've posted anything on here. So what has been going on?

Life at the moment is going really well. My new job which I started in May has all fallen into place and I'm totally on the ball and getting the recognition for my hard work.

Southampton really feels like home and I'm making friends and meeting...

Just returned from an amazing trip away with @sophoulla to Belfast in Northern Ireland. Honestly can't tell you how good it was. The hotel was perfect and the weather was outstanding for NI. Great food, friendly people and I came back with some serious artwork on my arm. Pics to follow

Just knocked up the best breakfast for a very beautiful girl @sophoulla . Banana pancakes (no recipe) which turned out perfect with crispy streaky bacon and maple syrup. Great start to what is going to be a great day and an even better weekend
