On Monday, I had a catch-up with Alice, one of my friends whom I have known forever. We spent a couple of hours together and talked about so much – and I told her about my blog!

We both got the same veggie recipe book for Christmas – *Joe Wicks’ Veggie Lean in 15 – so we decided to cook one of those recipes. It was delicious – I can’t wait to make it again! I don’t think I’ve ever cooked with anyone else besides my parents or in school.
Telling a real-life friend about my blog
When we were eating, I told Alice that I’d started a blog. I hadn’t told anyone else about it. My mum knows I have one, but she doesn’t know anything about it, so it was a pretty big deal for me to tell a real-life friend. It feels amazing to have told someone about it. I always get so nervous that someone I know in real life is going to stumble across it on social media or find me through looking at my phone notifications.
Many of you will probably have realised by now that I write about everything that goes on in my life, but I’m actually a pretty private person. Nobody really knows what’s going on in my life. I might tell someone what’s going on if they ask about it, but they rarely do. I don’t mind having a separate online life – I quite like it, actually. There are so many supportive people and people going through similar situations to me online that you just don’t find in real life. It’s nice to have someone who understands what you’re going through and can really relate.
Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that as much as I love all of you online friends for supporting me, I’m so glad I told a real-life friend about my blog. It’s just such a huge part of my life.
