The Mysterious Disappearance of SugarPlumPosts…


Who? Sugarplumposts? Exactly… so where have I been these last few months? When I ask myself that question I start to think… what exactly have I been doing?! I have been nowhere, I have done nothing. I moved to a new city, got a new job and it has taken over my life. I have a boring routine… work, sleep, work, sleep…then the weekend arrives and I find I’m bored every weekend trying to think of something to do before the work, sleep cycle takes place again.

I completely gave up blogging. I thought what is the point? I don’t have the time anymore and no one reads it anyway! I felt completely unmotivated. I don’t have any other hobbies… I don’t play sport, I don’t do knitting much anymore, and I don’t play the piano anymore... I even invested in some sports clothes and a yoga mat with the mantra,’I WILL TAKE UP YOGA. I WILL TAKE UP YOGA…’ with only doing one session and realising I am the most unflexible human alive. I was starting to get stuck in the thought that I am only 22 and have no life apart from work and sleep.

However. When I take a step back, I realise, on a whole I am happy, and even though what I do is boring compared to some other people, I still have fun and I have a wholesome life.

I have a wonderful boyfriend who loves me and we are going to be renting our first place together, which is extremely exciting!

When I want to I really do have fun! Recently, I went camping in the Lake District which was beautiful and a good laugh. Something I’ve never done before.


I have a family home in Yorkshire, in a tiny village in the countryside. And I love going back home for visits.




I have also been almost adopted into a family in Manchester too. I live with my boyfriend’s parents and they are the most supportive, lovely, accepting people. I will always be grateful for everything they have done for me. I have the best of both worlds. My crazy family back in Yorkshire and the beautiful countryside, and living in Manchester with my boyfriend’s parents (soon to be in our own place!) with the hustle and bustle of a city.

I have started to make new friends at work too and feel a lot more comfortable with what I do… oh and there is a cute office dog too!



I am a young person who has responsibilities, and I like that.

And I do want to change the hobbies situation! I want to start blogging again! I want to practice yoga…. Exactly that, PRACTICE. With practice in anything we all get better.

So I think the message of this post, is to stop thinking about what everyone else is doing, and appreciate everything you do have and appreciate it when you do have fun! You don’t have to spend a crazy amount of money and go out every night to have ‘fun’.


See you all soon with a new post ;)
