This is my week update, little as it will probably be. Personally, it’s been a bit of an off week – anxiety speaking.

It’s been a slow week for me in terms of blogging – I really wasn’t feeling well at the start of the week, and I just needed a break away from blogging and the pressures. I generally try not to set myself too many strict timings for my blog, but I needed reminding why I loved blogging, and why I do it.
