Sunday Catch Up #12

Happy Sunday Everyone! 

I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend. I can't believe it's already October, where did September go?! My last Catch Up post was almost a month ago, so I guess there is a lot of catching up to do! 

I'm back at Uni in Preston. I guess that's the biggest change in my life. I'm in a new house, with some new housemates which I'm really loving. We've already had some washing up issues but that's nothing new for me, we've also had lots of laughs, a few tears, a decent amount of sugar filled brews and a lot of alcohol. It's looking like it's going to be an enjoyable year. 

You might have noticed there has been a bit less activity on this blog than there normally would be, and if you follow me on twitter you might have seen a few weeks ago that I was going through a pretty rubbish time. In early September my boyfriend broke up with me, I hadn't seen it coming and I was pretty devastated. However we couldn't stop talking and he was almost more upset than me, and after some very long afternoons sitting in his car talking about everything that could possibly be said we decided to basically try again. 

I've always been the person who said relationships never work if you break up and get back together, and maybe I'm right and they don't work but maybe they do. Obviously I'm not going to go into the details of our relationship, but neither of us had done anything wrong, it was purely a total lack of honest communication and he basically got scared of his feelings and ran. Now we're both on the same page and things are already a lot better. It's Emma & Josh 2.0. I know people might judge, I would if I was looking from the outside, but we both want to be together and we've talked more than we've ever talked and we feel like it's right for us to try again. 

Anyway, I just felt like I needed to keep you guys updated on my life, maybe I shouldn't be so open on here, but it feels right for me. So now my blogging absence has been explained, I'm ready to get back into blogging. It's a very busy and stressful year for me, my dissertation is already making me want to cry, and I'm struggling with anxiety at the moment, but I'm determined not to quit blogging as It really is something I love to do. 

Now I've got to dedicate a lot of time to catching up on reading blogs! So leave me some links of your recent posts and I'll have a good reading session. 


  1. Break ups are hard... I broke up with my boyfriend lots of times and got back together. Sometimes they weren't really breakups though, they were just things said out of anger. I don't even know haha it was strange. But I'm glad Emma and Josh 2.0 are doing better! Best of luck with the relationship and everything else :)


    1. They do suck, but sometimes they're needed to realise what wasn't working and improve on it. Thank you very much :D
