Ok, I’ve been negligent – even since my move to weekly posting, the summer has been pretty dead over at Casa del Cat Food.
I’ve basically changed my life in the past few months, and while I still LOVE writing/blogging… CFIGFY had to take a back-seat.
Let me explain…
For the first time since studying for my GCSEs, I’ve found myself so engrossed in a project, I can barely make time for a scroll through Instagram (I know) let alone maintaining my regular schedule here.
Now, this isn’t actually like studying for an exam – this is (1) incredibly enjoyable and (2) self-inflicted.
So I’m not complaining, even if it has kicked my ass and I still have no idea if it will be worth half the time I’ve spent on it, but hey ho: a very interesting experience.
It has zilch to do with health and wellbeing, but if you’re at all curious , feel free to get the full details on this beast of a project here.
Now! Onto more life changes:
So, I moved to Brighton.
It’s a bit of a dream come true, and I’m still pinching myself every morning on my stroll along the seafront.
I could write a sonnet about my love for this city… but I’ll save you the pain of reading that.
Big thanks go to fellow blogger Amy Rutter for taking me under her wing, and being the only familiar face for me down here so far!
As much as I love travelling solo, I wasn’t sure how I’d fare living solo.
But… so far I’m as happy as a seaside clam.
I even have a 3-week old plant!
Also… I’ve become a traitor already. Hands down, Brighton has the BEST coffee bar NONE. Literally…
Top #3 Coffee Spots SO far:
I got my haircut for the first time in 12+ months?
Ok, that’s lame – actual news…
Oh I went on a 48hr silent meditation retreat!
That was… definitely different. Actually 1 think I’ve developed quite a taste for it, and am planning my next getaway already (and boy am I glad I didn’t go straight into a 10-day one – something you want to work up to gradually IMO!)
Lastly, I’ve taken up… walking.
Like, long walks. I always get my 10k steps in, but it’s in bits n bobs.
Now that I’m next door to the South Downs, I’m making time for ‘proper’ walks on a Sunday (and planning the 100 mile South Down trail this September… Who am I?)
Anyway, now this major proj is out of the way, I’ll be popping back in on the reg again.

Tell me, strangers! What’s new with you?
Got plans for the rest of the summer?
