It's been quite a while hasn't it? Some of you will probably see this and not even realise you follow me, but hello anyway!
I've never known if I'd get into this whole blogging business but due to some recent changes in my life, I feel like now is a good time to try and really get into this all again.
Now, I'll definitely admit, one of the big, BIG things holding me back from really blogging was I definitely felt like I needed to try and be successful and be like all those 'big' and 'known' bloggers. You know the ones I mean - the girls who do the outfit of the day posts, do reviews of the latest make-up must have, post hauls etc etc etc. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy their blogs (well most of them anyway) but if I'm being completely honest, I don't ever want to post about those sort of things. It's a lot of effort and time and MONEY! Seriously, the expectations to have a new outfit every post must not leave you with a very healthy bank balance I swear.
However in the past six/seven months I've discovered 'bloggers' (kinda hate that word but there is no alternative) that I felt I could genuinely relate to, they posted interesting things such as their day to day lives or recipes or trips they'd been on etc. And generally they just have a more relaxed vibe and don't seem to put pressure on themselves to post every single day with tonnes of pictures etc. They seem to blog because they enjoy it and write about things in their lives that matter to them.
And that's exactly what I want to do. I don't want to feel pressured to write and take pictures, I want to have my own little slice of the internet which can be my world where I can write things that genuinely matter to me. To have a blog that I want to read and be proud of!

So this is no specific blog. There is no specific theme, but it is exactly what it says on the tin: 'The Lucy Diaries'. Well, I say exactly, I'm not going to be sharing my deepest and darkest secrets like you may expect to find in a private diary. But instead I'm giving you me. My life. However much of it I wish to share with you. I do hope it will be interesting, though the only way I'll know that is if I actually start to enjoy using this little blog!
We could be in for a bumpy ride - hey that's what life's all about - and we most certainly could be in for a bit of a disaster, however fingers crossed this could be quite nice...
