Just feeding a monkey y'all...

Jambo! Hope you are all well and had a good fortnight? I'm back from my really amazing and unforgettable holiday and I'm pretty gutted to be back. At least we seem to have brought back a bit of nice weather with us.  I miss the heat, sun, sea, palm trees, monkeys, safari, people and animals of Kenya. We took so many photos, a lot of them being from safari which was incredible and I have lots to share photos and stories (which I will be doing a lot of haha) I've got lots of recommendations and tips as well for any of you who think they might be interested in going to Kenya and doing a safari (seriously do it!) I'll be running posts all week about it.

Firstly when I first managed to get back on to the Internet and I found that my blog was no longer coming up under my domain I thought I had been hacked or something (total website novice and all that) but after having some help from lovely people on twitter I realised my domain name purchase had run out as I had only made it for a year and now it's no longer available, don't know why the website that comes up with it now would want my name as it? Weird. The most annoying thing was all the posts I had scheduled for whilst I was away which took ages! I've saved some as drafts again now as it was a bit of a blog post bombardment but I've left some as it would have removed from the natural progression of some of the things I wanted to share, still a bit peeved but least it hadn't been hacked and I managed to reclaim all my posts from the past, would have been totally gutted if completely just lost everything!


I believe it may be time to invest in having a website made professionally too as well to go alongside this blog. Now I'm back from holiday it's time to pull up my frilly little socks I think! Get my job search on as really want a new job badly... a good one please! print and send out CV, work on new drawings and paintings, sort out my portfolio and maybe try and do an internship. It's just so hard when you need to work for real money too :( anyone want to employ me? I guess the dreaded return home holiday blues is making me all reflective and I just feel I need some opportunities to come my way because recently feel I'm not really good at anything, I'll snap out of it I'm sure. So basically that's what my first week back in the glorious U.K will involve (eye roll) but today is all about a bit of relaxing... after I woke up at 4.40, we had been getting up at about 6.30, 7 so I was still on that time. I will be uploading all my photos, scheduling Kenya blog posts, catching up on some sky+ programmes (glee started while I was away... rude) and drinking some good British tea, visiting my grandma and then seeing my bffl which I can't wait for!

Also don't forget to enter my giveaway which ends in only 2 days! I'm going to be running my discount on  my store for another week with all the website trouble and links I've been having. 
Discount Code = INAFRICA10

I was wondering about that. Now, were you always on blogger? I didn't realize you had to pay for that. Hmm...

Aw, gutted to hear about your blog- doesn't make sense at all, does it? Glad you've had a lovely time though and that you're back. I must admit, I've missed your lovely posts. Anyway, I WILL be writing to you at some point this week. I've been meaning to do it, but I've been crazy busy x

I wondered why your blog came up with some weird website! It was really annoying because I could just see snippets of really beautiful posts but couldn't find them! Glad they're working now!
