Times are a changin’

I haven’t really got a bake to share today. Just touching base, after a really long time, once again.

Today I’ve been feeling nostalgic. It feels a crazily long time since I first started blogging back in 2011. This blog emerged in 2012, but only after lots of playing around with blogger and wordpress, and trying to think up catchy names that kept changing in my head.

It feels in many ways like the world has become a more unkind place – especially with all the events of the last two years and the impact that they’ll have on the future. I want to try to be more positive about the future and what it will bring.

It’s one of the reasons I still love to read blogs – how people are pottering around, baking, crafting and making, thinking and living life. I’m glad to see there are still some stalwarts from this time posting away, and I love to read these more intimate homely kind of blogs even if the posting becomes more sporadic, and the content changes from student angst to careers and family and the undeniable temptation of the John Lewis homewares section. Let’s be honest, as those six years go by in your twenties, a lot changes. You get a job that perhaps you realise isn’t that career you wanted after all, you learn how to do DIY and botch it as well, mundane household tasks like weeding and cleaning the windows and generally become a “grown up”. Saying that, I’m still feel completely “un-grown up” inside, and have no idea how I’m going to deal with the Great Responsibility of Life.

That next age milestone is looming…

  1. Hi Ella, super to see you pop up in the newsfeed again. I can’t believe how much has changed since I started blogging in 2011 either. Sometimes I miss those care-free early blogging days. I just haven’t felt the joy from it this year, but I’m hoping it will return again as I still love reading other blogs. I also can’t believe I’m coming to the end of my 20s. It’s a bit scary, especially since I still feel in no ways equipped to deal with the Great Responsibility of Life!


    1. Hi Jo, I must have missed your comment from before! Can’t believe we both started six years ago! Do you read back your old posts as well? It’s such a lovely way of remembering things I didn’t bother writing anywhere else, and one of the reasons why I can’t help but keep popping back!
