The Struggle Of Long Distance Relationships

So I’ve definitely not gone back to writing these blog posts the day after it’s happened. Oh well, I’ll be forever changing my mind. It’ll keep you guys guessing I suppose. But I just want to say long distance relationships suck.

Sam and NatalieAfter such a lovely weekend, Sam and I had a lovely breakfast at the B&B that we had stayed at for the wedding and then packed our things and got on our way to the station to part ways. I love hotel/b&b breakfasts, as I love a nice cooked breakfast that always tastes better than my own. Although, I think I had way too much coffee because I was a little too alert and fidgety on the way back to London. Before leaving, I nabbed the freebie biscuits on offer in the room, to munch on for when I was on the train. Hobnobs and Custard Creams. Couldn’t leave that behind, could I? Oh and I forgot to mention we had a little guest in our room last night in the form of a little baby slug. Weird thing to be in a room but I guess that’s what you get when you stay in a more old fashioned place.

It’s now going to be 2 or 3 weeks now until I see Sam again. Note to you guys, long distance sucks. If you’re ever in a relationship, I’d make sure that relationship is strong and that you’ve been together for at least several months before doing long distance. Even though me and Sam have been together for nearly 2 and a half years, it’s still painful to be apart from each other. I really want him with me all the time. I think if you’re in a long distance relationship, the best advice I would give is to keep yourself busy to avoid thinking about the distance but make sure you either text or call each other every day. With me, it helps to hear his voice at the end of the day so I can go to sleep happy and not feeling upset when lying in bed at night.

When I finally got back to the house, I was in the mood to do a little spring clean around the house so I did the general wiping down of surfaces and hoovering/mopping of floors. Whenever I get into the cleaning mood, I take full advantage of it. I also managed to put a load of washing on and my evening was made when I got to skype Charlie and Elliott. My two besties who I love so much! Charlie is living the life in Argentina at the moment and Elliott is living the life in Aberystwyth at the moment. And what am I doing? Cleaning… 

CoupleAhhh well at least the place looks clean now and my bedroom is spotless. My family will be proud (especially my mamma). The one thing I’m looking forward to when I get my own place is designing and decorating the rooms. I’m starting to realise that I do want my own place soon, perhaps in a few years.

Have you ever been in a long distance relationship? Let me know in the comments below.
