[blinks into the digital daylight] Hello world. It’s been a while, hey?
I’ve been on a rather long hiatus. There was a pretty perfect storm of Things that led to an extensive period of complete zone-out. The pandemic, the lockdown, work stresses and strains, my health, the general trash-fire state of the world…. My mood hasn’t been too great, but I knew I needed that long period of retreat to recharge a bit. I’m not quite feeling the best at the moment, but I now feel able to DO things beyond basic maintenance of my human form. I don’t know about you, but when I’m under my glumbrella, I lose interest in almost every non-essential activity. But here we are; it’s September, and the world is turning nice colours and making me think cosy thoughts. I’m already gearing up for Halloween and Christmas because I love both and they make me feel happy and actually want to Do Things. I thought I’d take advantage of this rare moment of creativity/productivity and share a few photos from the last few months.
I made and ate some nice foods, had some nice walkies and pulled silly faces, enjoyed some leaves, bought myself a nice book, and rescued a hedgehog (!!)
There’s really not much else to report…. My bike was also stolen (boo) but then replaced with a lovely new model (hurrah) though claiming on the insurance is a bummer. I’m still struggling with lockdown and food and health, but I’m as always I’m trying to muddle through. I am so very ready for the winter months, dark nights, chilly weather, and autumn baking, and my Pinterest boards and bullet journal reflect that. I hope that you are all safe and well and coping as well as you can given the semi-apocalyptic circumstances. 🙏🏻
