With lockdown easing it is presenting the opportunity to break out of the city and embrace the countryside. A couple of weekends ago my sister suggested going on a country walk during the may bank holiday.

It’s been a while…
It’s been a while since my last post. Life got in the way. It’s certainly been a mixed bag of experiences and emotions over the last few months. I spent most of the autumn frantically searching for a job. Day after day online searching, speaking to recruiters, feeling lost and undervalued. This was one of … Continue reading It’s been a while…
Day 179: Reflecting back
October is only a couple of days away and I wonder how time has flown so quickly, it feels like only yesterday it was a strangely warm March, life was normal, I had a job, people went to work in offices.... but alas those days are gone.

I was on the waitlist for an appointment with my lovely hair dressers and then I got the call a couple of days … Continue reading Day 95: I got my hair done!
Day 90: Out and About
How is it July? How is it that I have been in lockdown in my flat now since the 17th March? Back at the end of March and start of April who of us really thought we would still be here now? I thought by July we would be back to some sense of normality, … Continue reading Day 90: Out and About
