It’s been a couple of years since I last updated this blog, and to be honest it is a very strange place to be in. For the vast majority of my life I have share my thoughts from my head in some sort of form on the internet, however certain events happened mid 2018 that led to me feeling lost and without a place in the universe.
I want to start writing again. With the loss of Dayvelle.uk I find myself wanting to recreate that proud feeling I would get upon finishing a post and clicking publish. Dayvelle contained amongst some of my most proud pieces of writing. For a long time I have been in mourning, I thought once something was put on the internet that it was there forever? How has this site that meant so much to me been completely lost with no archive of the posts I loved so much. Completely stuck to the notion that I would never write anything as good ever again.
But i’m turning 24 this year. I will officially start my mid-twenties and you know what? I like writing. I’m not the best at it and my work is certainly drizzled with a ridiculous amount of typos but I enjoy it. I’ve always enjoyed getting my thoughts out of my overcrowded head and shoving them into the ridiculous-ness of the internet. Free and roaming for anyone to view but no promise that anyone will view them.
My life is a lot different to 2018. A lot has changed. Not long after putting this blog on hiatus we had our bikes stolen, lost our mortgage with which we were going to buy our first home – instead moving into a different rented flat that ended up being a beautiful experience. After living in a studio together for a year and a half we had so much space and it was such a moment of growth, for the both of us.
We started 2019 feeling nothing short of beaten down by the world. Most of it first world problems definitely – but still problems that I found very overwhelming. It was a fun, beautiful, tough and completely unexpected year. We no longer live in Bournemouth and instead now reside within Toms home county Shropshire. I run my own jewellery brand Rayelle Co and Tom runs his own coffee brand Wilshaw Supply Co. Rosie is doing brilliantly and we have two new additions – Bubble & Squeak the Russian dwarf hamsters. We still have huge dreams and see ourselves living by the beach again, but thats all for future us to worry about.
and so with this reintroduction I leave you with this blog. Once hxanou, now Hannah Rayelle. I can’t make any promises for when I will next post nor if the next post will be filled with anything of substance.
