I have been a terrible blogger for the past several months... I've (not on purpose) ignored emails, comments and generally suffered a lack of time to post. So I thought it was about time I explained myself.
At the start of 2013 I made a promise to myself to always try and say 'yes' to things and in doing so, my life got a lot busier. This wasn't necessarily a bad thing, I just started to prioritise things in my life differently and focussed on my career and made an effort to spend more time with friends and go places I'd never been before. It just simply meant I didn't have time to fit everything in - no matter how many posts I wrote in my diary and scheduled.
This year, I decided to do the same and in turn, 'Girl in the North' is still suffering for it. So far I've had trips to London, celebrated my birthday with wonderful friends who I hadn't seen in ages, had my very first afternoon tea at Betty's, decided to zip wire off the Wearmouth Bridge again, met a lovely boy... and tested out the 'color' at The Color Run Sunderland launch, thanks to a dare from Monica at The Echo!
It's been absolutely brilliant so far and I wouldn't have had it any other way which is why I can't guarantee exactly when I'll be back writing properly again but what I can promise is that I will at some point! I'm just having far too much fun and enjoying each and every moment to be able to record it all right now.
