First of all, I want to apologise for the silence from me over the last couple of days. I needed an internet and blog break, because, to quote Bilbo from The Hobbit (yes, I am one of those people) ‘I feel thin. Like butter scraped over too much bread’.

I’ve been burning myself out recently trying to keep up with a very stressful full time job, going to the gym, doing 20+ hours on this blog a week and then trying to fit in time for myself and my friends and family – it’s all become a little too much and I found myself becoming completely overwhelmed last week. So I decided to have a couple of days away, freshen up and come back with a clear head. That said, I’ve also decided that at present time posting 7 days a week just isn’t feasible so I’ll still be posting regularly, but more like 4 or 5 times a week instead.

Secondly, you’ll notice the name of this post has changed. I’ve decided that doing ‘That Monday Post’ and ‘Sunday Roundup’ was a little silly really when I could fit the whole thing into one post every Sunday, so that is what I’ll be doing from now on!

My aims for this week in that case are:

1) Find my replacement at work – seriously ready to fully absorb my new role now!
2) Film my September favourites video.
3) Buy my Dad’s Christmas present and my perfect pair of knee boots for winter.

Now to go back to my relaxing day of films, Sims 4 and magazines – what do you all have planned for the rest of your Sunday?

      You can partition your Mac to run Windows as well and it'll work that way 🙂 I think it's called Bootcamp or something – I used to have a Macbook and considered doing the same thing to get Sims 3 to run better (I'm a massive Sims addict) xo

      Oh gosh me too! I become obsessed with it way too easily, I have to actually limit myself to a certain amount of time on it or I'll be playing for the entire night without even realising! xo

    I totally understand that you have to step back from your blog sometimes, 7 times a week is a lot and sometimes it feels to much to just post twice a week so 4-5 I feel is still a lot, so don't stress yourself too much! Much love xxxCHRISTINANISTA.COM

      It had started to really wear me out, this week has been so much more relaxing without feeling the need to post constantly, but at the same time I feel a little like I'm not making enough effort by not posting quite as religiously! xox
