Hello readers, if you’re still around! It’s been a little while since I reaaaaaaly posted on MLBB and I thought I would just catch you up with everything if you were wondering. I know bloggers don’t need to apologise for blogging breaks, and I’m not going to but I will just catch you up.
The past few months have been a little tough to say the least. I suffered two horrible horrible grievances that were a real shock. Both were utterly unfair and rocked a hella lot of boats. Relationships with certain people were strained and we all needed to step back and heal. Instead of doing that I threw myself into everything and anything and suffered the typical Lizzy burnout. #welldonebabes.
When I finally felt ready I decided to stay off the blog and to instead put together a healthier, happier lifestyle. This is a book blog so I won’t go into details but I’ve started running, I’ve started meditating, I’ve started eating healthier, I’ve lost my binge eating weight (ie ten pounds – bloody hell.) and I feel so much bloody better. So much better.
Which leads me to this blog. I’m finally ready to get back to writing – I was worried that with everything going on I would just come across as this boring, exhausted, stroppy human who just wasn’t a lot of fun. So, I’ll be back on the 1st of August. I need a month to get back on my blogging feet and get my brain back into blogging habits.
This post has ended up being a lot longer than I thought it would be, but there you go. I love you all.

Oh Lizzy! So sorry to hear you’ve had such an awful time. Look after yourself and don’t rush things. Take time and be kind to yourself. The blog will still be here when you’re ready. Sending love and hugs. Karen xxx
Thank you lovely! I tried to come back to blogging a week or so back and just didn’t feel able to so I’ve given myself some more time to hopefully get back on track.
I’ve been reading so much though and I’ve been planning lots of exciting new posts so I can’t wait to be back! Thank you for the love and hugs 🙂 xxx
Sorry to hear that you’ve been going through all that stuff. I took a two week break from blogging and when I returned my mind was clear and fresh. It’s necessary to take breaks every now and then.
We’ll all still be reading books and chatting about them – we’re not going anywhere. In the meantime, you focus on ensuring you are physically and mentally completely recovered:). Take care and know you are in my thoughts.
You take time to heal. Looking forward to whenever you choose to come back. 🙂
So sad to hear that you’ve been having a hard time! Hope things are better now, though it sounds as if you’re well under way to getting better with all your new and healthy habits 🙂 I look forward to discovering your new content!
Welcome back! I’m glad you’ve made some healthy habits that will keep you feeling better! Dealing with personal stuff can be really hard on top of all of your other responsibilities, but remember that your self care is more important than this blog, even though we all love it.
Welcome back. Glad you are on a healthier lifestyle now. And sorry that things are not so great. Hope everything will brighten up soon
Whatever it is that you’ve been going through, I’m so sorry you had to go through it. Sometimes you need to take a minute to step outside and take in some fresh air, so I don’t blame you for taking a break. I hope you are doing better, and if you ever need to talk, feel free to hit me up on Twitter.
Take care Lizzy! Sending good vibes your way from across the pond. =)
I’m sorry that things have been bad for you my dear. We all need someone to talk to, and even though we’ve never met in person I’m here for you. Xxx
I’m glad you were able to give yourself a chance to heal and I’m so sorry that things have been so rough for you!
