My PollyannaLife changes and evolves and what I’ve come to realise is that you never really do get things 100% sorted. In fact it’s much easier to accept a situation and just move on, go with the flow. It feels like most things I do now are stripped back and made as simple as possible, exactly for this purpose. I eat better (huge thanks to the Hemsley sisters for this!), I spend better quality time with my girls and I’m more productive in the time that I have*. It just took a little get used to!

Although the blog has been neglected for a few months, it’s always been in my mind and niggling away at me. The thought of not doing it again just didn’t sit well or really make sense. It just had to work for me and my new life with Hero.HeroSo I decided to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. And here it is – a new look blog. It’s feels much better to me, easier to breathe with much less going on. No adverts, no complicated menus and categories (or at least that’s the idea!) just simple blog posts that you can read without clicking through.

I’ll only be blogging once to twice a week but it means I get to share what’s going on at Hero and anything else that feels right at the time – which I think is what a blog is really about isn’t it?

I’m really pleased with the new look and I hope you like it too. Have a great week.


*it’s not as perfect as it sounds, but I can but try!

    Welcome back to the world of blogging. I enjoyed your reading your old blog and taking a peek at your style (which I love) so Iam glad you have decided to return. I think we can be too hard on ourselves, to do everything perfect and we should just go with the flow….. hands up to you for starting a new business with 2 little ones. I love the simple style of the new My Pollyanna. Xx

      Thank you Annmarie…trying to have everything perfect is just too too hard. My expectations were way too ambitious and I felt like I was failing all over the place but now it’s like it all feels more comfortable. I’m so pleased you like it, it’s great to back in such a lovely community. L x

    It looks fab Laura, I really do love the clean, uncluttered design. And I don’t know how you manage to keep all the balls in the air. I’m in awe! x

      Oh phew, thank you! It’s always nerve racking when you put something new out there isn’t it? It’s so nice to get lovely feedback though, it’s so much appreciated, thank you xx
