New Direction!

Hi and welcome to the new and improved Bus Thoughts! I know…. It looks exactly the same as before just with all the posts removed.

I’ve removed my previous posts as I feel my like the original direction of this blog has now changed rewriting. You’ll see them pop up every now and again so make sure you pay attention.

My original intention for this blog was for it to be a place for me to preach/ teach based on my life experiences and to a degree it’ll still be a place for that but it’ll also be a place for me to write about other things happening in my life! I adore writing, I really do but writing encouraging, uplifting, God inspired advice isn’t always something I can easily do, especially when I’m feeling a little broken. I want to be real. I want to be encouraging. I want to be entertaining, I want to be consistent and I want to write for fun again.

My plan is to have some creative writing posts, poetry, posts about craft projects I’m working on, work and school… Just general fun life stuff. I’m still Christian, I still adore Jesus and that’ll still be very evident in my posts, there just wont always be a fluffy little life lesson at the end of everything. dramatically and also, after studying English for the last year I feel my writing style has developed and changed so much that the pieces of writing I want to keep published require editing and It’s a fun, exciting adventure and I really hope you’re all excited as I am.

I thought, for my very first post it’d be good to explain a little bit about me, what I do and what my ambitions are…

My name is Vicky (Victoria), I’m 28, I’m married to Dave (David) and have been for nearly seven years! We don’t have children yet but we do have Yuffie (our pet cat) and a couple of tanks of fish. I’m trained in childcare, currently nannying the most adorable children and I’m excited to share some hilarious stories about them with you. Last (academic) year I studied to retake my GCSE exams in Maths and English. After passing them both with B’s this year I’ll be studying an access to higher education course in Psychology, Social Studies and Statistics. Next year I hope to do a degree in childhood studies with my ultimate goal being to become a play therapist. I’m actually going to do a separate post about that shortly. I struggle with some mental health issues but I’m determined not to lose any more of my life to it. I am in therapy and I (finally) no longer feel shameful about that. I have two best friends Lucy (who lives round the corner) and Becca (who’s in the process of moving to Africa…) I love pandas, Frozen, arts, craft, music, books, TV and I spend far to much time on social media! I’m trying to get fit and healthy so I’ll probably mention that at some point and I spend far to much money of coffee and nail polish.

I’ll leave you with some pictures from our camping holiday in Swanage this summer….

See you soon!
