I mean, I don’t think I’ve really spoken about this enough to be honest so.. I’M GOING TO BARCELONA ON TUESDAY. BARCA. ON TUESDAY. ME… Alone. ALONE. ANOTHER TRIP ALONE. EEeeeek.

Now if you had said to me this time last year that I would be hitting the Spanish sands alone I would have laughed in your face.

I’ve been single for almost a year now. I came out of what was, quite frankly, an unhealthy relationship, which was doing me more harm than good. And so, once that relationship ended I moved on quite quickly (There were serious reasons why it was so easy to move on.. but that’s not something for the blog i’m afraid!). So, I know I’m only about… 10 months into being single. But…
