I spent my summer in Chelsea ♡

Hey Guys,

... But not the way you think. Lets start off with explaining a little about Chelsea, its in the heart of London, probably has the most amazing houses (with very high house prices lol), the prettiest streets and the poshest people, but there's also a lovely hospital. And that's where I've spent my summer. I personally wasn't a patient, my brother was and has had a hell of a summer. But lets get onto that a little later, and that's where I've been, in Chelsea, in a hospital, 9-10, day in, day out and it hasn't been easy ...

I wasn't sure whether or not I was going to write this up, let alone publish, purely because I get a little nervous sharing my personal life and this is not my 'story' to tell. I remember last year, I was incredibly open about my mum's cancer battle and her passing, which I don't regret being open about because it was almost a release to me, blogging allowed me to express all of that. But this time round, I'm a little older, and I feel hesitant but I know I want to write it, in basic detail, nothing heavy or super detailed.

Personal Life

Where do I begin? Remember when I told you guys my brother was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and how he spent a month in hospital. It's in and around in this post. Well, because of the severity of the Colitis, it would not respond to medical management and thus, this meant, he needed a major life operation. Lets talk dates, the operation occurred in July, but there was a complication and so when he was discharged a few weeks later, we found ourselves back in a few days after discharge. And so, began another week long hospital stay. And we finally got to go home. But not was all as it seems, we had to take him back everyday to receive IV antibiotics, this went on for a month. Everyday, we'd leave at 10 and get home at 2, it wasn't easy and at this point we're in August. That whole process stopped early September and we felt free, so, so, free, just knowing that you don't even have to leave the house felt bloody amazing. Alas, it's never easy with my 15 Year Old brother, is it? He came down with a stomach bug and had to be re admitted early Sept and thankfully let go a few days later! Phew!!!

That's basically it in a nutshell, I've tried not to divulge a crazy amount but boy, it has been a hard summer, if you could call it a summer. He's been through it and I really don't know how he's done it, just the injections used to freak me out!
Shirt: H&M (£17.99)
Skirt: H&M (£17.99)
Cardigan: H&M (£24.99)
Boots: New Look (£10.00)

Me, Myself and I

And now, onto me, Hi, I'm Trishna, in case you've forgotten because I spontaneously took a week off lol. And, did I need that week off, or did I need it off. I finished Uni in May, expected to have a glorious summer and get myself a job. Spoiler, it didn't happen haha! So, what am I doing now? I'm on the job hunt, I'm looking at internships and basically spending my days doing so.

The Blog

Oh, it's here and I'm glad I've got the blogging spark back, I found it incredibly tough blogging and juggling hospital life which is why my schedule has been all over the place, and I do want to apologize for that, but life took over and I posted whenever I could. I would find myself in the hospital, just writing for release and writing because it was my saviour during the long hours. Taking photo's for the posts, on the other hand was challenging but I did it lol. Anyway, the blog, yes, the blog, I want to get it back to full speed, my regular schedule (Tues & Thurs) and comment a crap tone. I've missed commenting on blogs, I've been guilty of reading and forgetting to comment and I feel like I've fallen off the face of Disqus, so that whip needs to be cracked! It's either I forget or I haven't had the time, some days when I should be commenting, all I want to do is nothing, like I simply want to sit on my bum and do nothing.

Although its been tough, I don't think I've laughed so much, everyone at the hospital was beyond phenomenal and walking pretty streets did help. You can value more than you ever thought you would by visiting a hospital and the work ethic everyone holds there is pretty astounding. And hey, there were great restaurants on the same street, which I can confirm, we took advantage of!

And that's that, hopefully this post explains why my posting has been so jumpy/irregular, my non existent commenting and my social media profiles like an empty bag! I feel a little relieved getting it out there and it's not just because I've been a lazy blogger lol.
