Where Have I Been?!

I haven't been away long, a week or so maybe, but I always hate taking time away from the blog. Blogging is something I really enjoy doing, I love to write a blog, I love to read blogs, I love to participate in the blogging community, but sometimes life gets in the way. My life has been in the way lately, I have been so busy I have barely even tweeted nevermind sat dow to write a blog post or snap some photos. It's all for a good reason, though, or rather, a few good reasons. 

First reason: my sister got married. If you follow me on Instagram you may have seen me post photos of a castle or add to my Instagram story about being up in the north of Scotland, my Snapchat was also full of photos like those. I am yet to post any photos of myself as a bridesmaid anywhere because the photographer hasn't given us any photos back just yet. Last Friday my family packed up our cars and headed 4/5 hours up north to Kyle of Lochalsh for my sister's beautiful wedding. 

On the way up we saw such incredible scenery, we drove through mountains or hills, I'm not entirely sure what criteria identifies them as one or the other. We drove past Loch Lomond and I got to see just how beautiful my own country is. Once we got there we stayed right by the loch in little cottages and by 'right on the loch' I really do mean we were right on the loch. The living room and dining room had windows right along the one wall to show off the beautiful view. At the other side of the cottage was more mountains or hills. Can you guess what this meant? SIGNAL SUCKED. I had no phone signal most of the weekend and the wifi wasn't the best.

On the Saturday my sister got married at a beautiful castle with a gorgeous ceremony, I don't want to get too into the ceremony as I feel like it was such an intimate wedding she wouldn't want me posting about it on my little piece of the internet for everyone to read. On the Sunday afternoon, we headed home again, and as excited as I was to get back home, to my bed, my phone signal and my pets, I was a little upset that I had seen so little of my beautiful country while there. I definitely want to explore more of Scotland, it is such a beautiful country and I have seen so little of it. 

Besides the wedding, my life has also been overtaken by essays, dissertation and job searching. In the next few weeks, I have two essays due in, the biggest dissertation chapter of all of them due and a job interview. I have one essay finished and half a dissertation chapter down, but with trying to keep up with university readings, go to university, keeping up a social life, keeping up with life, trying to find a graduate job, gosh I am ready to just crash out on my bed. Don't get me wrong I am totally aware I am doing well and some other people have far worse lives than me and are under a lot more stress than me, but it's keeping me busy right now and blogging has come second for a little.

Where Have I Been?!

I hate when I have to take time off blogging, though, I really enjoy blogging and I have become so proud of my blog so when I can't blog I feel like I have failed. Sometimes you just have to put other things in your life first and let blogging take the backseat for a while even if you don't want to. 

So I have been back since Monday and I am doing well with my essays, so why hasn't any posts gone up this week you make ask. Well, on the way home from my sister's wedding we stopped in at a little cafe where I got some tuna which was off because I got food poisoning. So all Monday I was in bed, asleep, puking and feeling like crap, I started to feel a little better by Wednesday and made a return to university yesterday for a lecture, so here I am back on the blog today. 

I don't know when I'll be making a return to blog chats, or commenting on blog posts, but I am back at the blogging game and will be posting three times next week, hopefully. I am excited to be back at it and cannot wait to post some of the amazing ideas I have come up with during my time off. 

So how have you been? I feel like we haven't chatted in forever! What is the longest time you have taken away from blogging?
