I’m going to take a short break from blogging. And don’t worry, I don’t mean ‘short’ like “I’ll be back in 6 months LOL JK I won’t be back” I mean my next post will be Monday. I know I get concerned when an Eating Disorder blog goes quiet for a couple of days or weeks so just letting you know – I’m fine, but there are a few other things going on that I need to focus on.
After trying to write some boring, irrelevant posts these past couple of days and not wanting to write fillers for this blog, I figured I might as well just come back next week when I can write something worthwhile.

Yesterday I went toLondon. I was meeting up with SLiNK magazine to see what I could do in terms of writing and it was a successful! Do check out their site and buy a copy if you’re interested in plus size fashion!
I wish I could say the day was a complete success but unfortunately I had a lot of anxiety, ironically after the meeting. For those of you who don’t know much about Bristol, it’s the 8h biggest city in the UK, so it’s not huge but it’s a sizeable city. We’re the home of Banksy, Aardman animation and Cary Grant. They also filmed Being Human series 1 and 2 here as well as Skins. There’s a fair bit going on so I was like pppffftttt! London will be a piece of cake. There was just the small inconvenience of the fact that I don’t like people seeing my body and tend to get social anxiety.
And my God, Londonis busy. 2pm on a Tuesday was busy, at 5pm the streams of people heading to the underground was ridiculous. It was a short notice trip so me and my Mum didn’t prepare much and we had no idea where we were going. We walked around Oxford street
and Piccadilly Circus
So we saw some of the places we wanted. The satellite navigation app on my phone helped a lot as well as the maps dotted around.
I didn’t take any pictures because I forgot my camera but I’m hoping to go there again within the next couple of months so I’ll get some photos for you, not that you can’t google London and get a whole load of pictures. But still, they may have my face in them. Don’t pretend you don’t want to see my face.
