Love Libby is Back!

Ciao Bella. It's been a long time since I wrote a post here, and for a long time I thought i'd never write a post again. I've never told you I was the most dedicated blogger out there. I get bored of things easily and often "lose my mojo". It happened again back in February and I thought it was gone for good. Luckily, a few weeks ago I began to crave the blogging world again and knew it was time to focus on a come back. 

So whats new?
I got a new job! Previously I worked with Autistic young men in their 20's, supporting them to do independent tasks in their day to day lives... I loved it, we had a laugh every day, my team were great and the boys were such sweet hearts. However, there's only so long you can spend working 24-48 hour shifts including over nights for minimum wage. Unfortunately, after 18 months, my time, patience and passion was dying so I decided it was time for a change. I've gone back to the childcare profession that started my career - something I said i'd never do - and I'm loving it again. Sure, everyday is filled with snotty noses, poo-y nappies and wet pants, but its also filled with smiles, cuddles, "I love you's" and "thank you's". I'm enjoying going to work again and finally feel like the only way is up. 

I lost my best friend. My beloved Granddad passed away. Although it fills me with selfish peace to know he is finally free, my heart is also eternally broken that we'll never hear him sing for us or roller skate along the sea front again.

I've flown the nest! After 5 and a half years, me and D have finally decided to live together. It's taught us a lot and we've learnt things about each other even though we thought we knew it all. There's ups, and downs, but our relationship has survived so many tests over the last few months that moving in together has made us stronger then other. Here's to the next 5 years of tantrums, arguments over dinners and spooning in bed. 

So, whats new on the blog? 
Love Libby has had a new makeover - shoutout to Pipdig for the new theme. I'd been toying with purchasing one for a while and decided to finally bite the bullet. I'm glad I did. I *think* I'm finally happy with how my blog looks... For now (I'm fussy and fickle... I'll probably hate it in a few weeks).

Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat finally all have handles that match. Although "lovelibbyxx" worked for a while, I outgrew those kisses on the end and I'm now finally available in 1 place... Welcome to the world, lovelibbyUK.

Scheduling is done and dusted. I've given up with scheduling, there was a time I thought it was the smartest thing to do. But honestly? It put me under to much pressure. If I ever reached the point that the posts ran out, all I'd do was think about it, then think about not having time to write anything new then think about the fact I wasn't producing any content. It was to much and quite frankly, un-needed stress. 


So here I am, back in the online world, seeing how the blogging life treats me again. It feel's good to be back.
