    October Favourites

    One of my favourite months didn’t feel so normal this year. It’s hard and it’s getting harder as the U.K. goes into another lockdown. When we are on the other side of this, I will be glad I kept a note of the things I was liking because, while it doesn’t seem like I’m having any fun right now, it will be nice to have proof I didn’t just stare at the wall for months. Weekend away I went away for a few days to celebrate my birthday to the Cotswolds, which was everything I needed this month. To get away from the same four walls and breathe in air…

    September Favourites

Hopefully doing a few more ‘normal’ things in September will help.

    July Favourites

    I’m sooooo fed up with my lockdown routine, but I can’t get out of it. When I’m not at work, life is just just a constant routine of watching TV, eating food, missing life pre-covid and wishing I was doing more. I’m slowly doing different things, seeing my social bubble infrequently, trying to do nice things round the house. But it’s not the same. When will it go back to normal? This is what I liked and loved during another month in lockdown. Atypical I watched a lot of TV this month. Mostly shows that my sister has been telling me to watch for years, like Atypical on Netflix. It’s…
