Redhead Rambles #18

Hello everyone and welcome to ‘Redhead Rambles’. The series does what it says on the tin, it is a redhead (me) rambling about her week. I share what I’ve been up to each week, how I’ve been feeling and what I’ve been listening to or watching. Occasionally I will my share favourite blog posts and links I’ve found useful or interesting.

  • Before I get into how my current week has been I wanted to let you know I am no longer in a relationship. If you don’t follow me on Instagram you wouldn’t have seen my story announcing it. It was my first relationship and I was in it for almost two years. When another person takes up such a big part of your day and knowing they’re there makes you happy it’s hard to go from that to nothing. I feel like that’s the reason it hurts so much. I know I am a strong person and I will get through, it’ll just take some time.
  • Last Friday I tried to go and see Avengers: Infinity War at the cinema but all the evening sessions were sold out.
  • Saturday was a very emotional day, I cried a lot and cried hard. I spent the day in my pyjamas, read and watched a couple of episodes of Poirot.
  • Sunday was my first day in my current job as a single lady and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I told my team leader and another staff member what happened and they were supportive.
  • Sunday was also the first day I didn’t cry and I’ve managed to not cry for five days straight.
  • I really want to try the sock bun mentioned in THIS VIDEO from But First, Coffee but it seems complicated…
  • I had a one on one meeting at work with my team leader which was very positive and complimentary.
  • The online makeup order I placed a few weeks ago arrived. A post sharing what I got will be up on Monday.
  • Monday’s post will be the last one for a while. I plan on having a blogging break for the next month or so, so my posts will be sporadic. I won’t not be posting but it won’t be three times a week. I will still be on Twitter and Instagram and reading/commenting on blogs.

What I’ve been listening to:

Shane Filan – You and Me – This album is so special to me and is one of my top five favourites of all time! I love every song and what makes an album a standout and worthy of top five status is not only listening to it a lot and knowing all the words but knowing all the instrumentation and all the little vocal changes. I still remember the hype when this came out and how excited I was.

Ariana Grande – No Tears Left To Cry – I have always had an appreciation for Ariana’s voice. Her new track is catchy and I’m excited for what’s to come.

How was your week?

    I’m sorry about your relationship because breakups are never easy. I know from my experience things only get better with time but until you get there just take care of yourself. Sending you lots of virtual hugs and a shoulder to cry on if you ever need it.

    I think it’s a great idea to take a break from blogging and just focus on yourself. Just write when the mood strikes and you’ll find it might even be therapeutic.

    I love Ariana Grande and that new song is amazing.

      I have come a long way in the past week, I’ve barely cried and every day I don’t is an achievement! Thanks for offering your shoulder 😄

      I haven’t had a blogging break in a while, I just hope I don’t get bored. I’ll still be reading just not posting.

      Ariana is super talented!

    Sorry to hear about your breakup, hope you’re doing ok! Things do get easier though, just focus on yourself for a while.

    Also just to let you know, I’ve nominated you for a quote challenge over on my blog, but if you’re taking a blogging break then don’t worry about it 🙂 I’ve always found taking breaks to be quite refreshing. 😊

    I’m sorry to hear you’re no longer in a relationship. I’m sending you comforting hugs from the UK. xoxo

    But you’ll be OK. I’m sure you’ll enjoy being single once your new single status becomes the new normal.

    And congrats on the positive feedback from your team leader. Thumbs up!

      Thank you for the hugs ☺️ I was single for a long time before that relationship so I’m used to it I guess. I’ll miss having a companion that felt like mine and someone I could tell anything to.

    Sorry to hear about the end of your first romantic relationship. It takes time to mend and get used to life without that person, it’s not easy.
    I hope you’ll enjoy your time away from the blog. I remember feeling more balanced when I took breaks and felt more engaged when I returned.
    Did you end up seeing Infinity War? We had to purchase our tickets in advance to secure them or else they were sold out so quickly. I enjoyed the movie a lot – not your typical ending though…
    Take care Chanelle, I’ll see you on other social media platforms! ❤

      I think it’s hit me harder because it is the first breakup and it was so unexpected. I’m not going to lie it has hit me hard 💔
      I did get to see Infinity War, I thought the movie was good considering I haven’t seen many others in the series, it didn’t seem disjointed or like you had to watch the others to understand this one.
