So hello! I hope you’re all well and 2020 hasn’t completely knocked ye down! It’s been a lil while since I shared what’s been going on in Lynsey Land but we’ve had some updates recently, well one big one.
I’ve eventually found and just completed on my VERY OWN HOUSE. Which just has me proud as punch if I’m really honest. This time last year I was at the lowest point of my life. I was drowning in grief missing my dad and really incapable of dealing with it, I was unexpectedly living back home with my mum and my life was generally upside down. I felt like I’d completely lost my way and had no idea how to get a handle back on it or process how I felt. I’ve subsequently been open about how low I felt back then and honestly if a few things hadn’t happened, I don’t think I’d have survived it and that’s scary. I was making stupid decisions and choices and completely forgetting my self worth. That was a complete deep, dark hole.
But a year down the line is a real peak. And I couldn’t be prouder of myself (if I say so). I completely started my life again from scratch and I did it entirely on my own. No big hand outs, no relying on anybody else to share the burden. Just my own hard fucking work and discipline. And y’know what, I’ll flex the fuck out of it and I’ll make zero apologies cause it felt like an insurmountable task a year ago.
Don’t get me wrong, It hasn’t been easy. There’s been many bumps and disappointments along the way. There have been several changes of plans. There have been tears (mostly mine). Sleepless nights. The lot. But I can tell you it’s been worth every single negative part for this feeling. Walking into my house on Friday and looking around felt really bloody good. And it reminded me that you have to take the rough with smooth in life and it always gets better.
So now I’m in a happy little bubble of making the house a home. There’s parcels arriving every hour at the minute and I’m flat out designing every inch of my wee home the way I want it. And I can’t wait to share the progress with you all! Most notably my bar area that’s gonna be the best spot in town once we’re all allowed to socialise again….
Thanks for reading!
