The Girl behind the Blog

So who am I? 

The Girl Behind the Blog ..... 


Hey guys and welcome to my blog, Laura's Carousel;  I hope you'll stick around!  So I thought that first of all I'd start with just a little introductory post so you could get to know me a little better.... I'm Laura and I'm the girl behind the blog.  

Enjoying the sun in Crete - Take me back!!

I'm Laura, I'm 30 and I've absolutely no idea how that happened!  I think that I blinked and missed a few years to be honest! I live in a little place called Rosewell which is near Edinburgh, Scotland.  I'm a bit of a homebody -  I'm close to my family and they mean the world to me;  I'm  pretty attached to where I'm from and I love it but I also love to travel and experience new places - yup a bit of a mass of contradictions I am!  

I'm currently not working at the moment because I have a bit of a broken body unfortunately.  I am currently on long term sick leave from the job that I did have with one of the big banks and was diagnosed with PoTs - Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome! - last year.  I'll be writing a lot about my health and how this affects me in the blog as well as my mental health which in all honesty is a bit full of ups and downs.

I love cats and have a gorgeous ragdoll called Amelia who will be featuring a lot I'm sure; and I'm a coffee and chocolate addict.  I think pandas are the absolute cutest and I have a growing love for stationary.  I have a bit of an obsession with Lotus biscoff biscuits and spread - seriously guys, have you tried it on toast?!  You'll thank me.

 I'm a huge fan of pjs and comfy clothes and can often be found watching Netflix or some other form of boxset and / or having a nap - I do love a nap since I've become ill, they help me survive!  So I have to hold my hands up and admit that most of my blog may possibly have been written from my bed and / or in my comfy clothes!

I think that's pretty much all that you need to know about me but if there's anything else that you want to know then please feel free to ask :)  I'd like to think I'm pretty approachable so if you want to then contact me using any of the methods on my contact me page here,

Thanks for reading and until next time, lotsa love n hugs x Laura xxx
