The end of April/beginning of May didn’t exactly go particularly well for me. I was really struggling with anxiety so I ended up having to phone my GP and got put on Sertraline. The side effects made me feel pretty sick for the first week but luckily I started taking them over the bank holiday weekend (and I’d taken the Monday off which I was super grateful for) so I mostly sat on the sofa watching Murder, She Wrote! Thankfully I’m now starting to feel less sick and less anxious all the time.
Well, April was an absolute shit show, wasn’t it? I was ill at the end of March and then lockdown happened. Life completely changed overnight and, I’m not going to lie, some days have been an absolute struggle in terms of my anxiety. I’m trying to look at the positives though; my friends and family are all okay and I’m grateful that I can work from home.
I really hope that you’re all okay too and I’m sending you lots of love ❤️❤️
Well, what a bloody year these past 3 months have been, right?? This year has felt so unbelievably long already and we’re only at the end of March!! If you’re a blog regular, you might have noticed that I haven’t done a catch-up post since December, so I thought I’d catch you all up on the past three months!
As usual, I’m massively late with my round up! I do have a fab excuse though, J and I discovered that our entire house has started going mouldy, so we’ve been cleaning ALL the things, washing the walls and ceilings, plus installing a ventilation system into the roof space! It’s been taking absolutely ages and we’re not really even halfway through yet 🙁
The Curry Leaf Cafe* in Brighton is celebrating its fifth birthday this year and, to celebrate, they’ve recently undergone a massive refurbishment of the Ship Street branch!! I headed over there last week to check it, and their lunch menu, out 🙂
Whoops a daisies!! I kind of forgot to do a catch up for October so I thought I’d combine it with my November catch-up!!
Well shit, this is a bit late, isn’t it? I seemed to have not only lost my blogging motivation, but all motivation in general recently. It’s probably due to the fact that I’ve recently changed my hours at work so I’m now cramming a full-time job into 4 days and it’s been a bit of an adjustment to say the least!! I really love having Fridays off, but being at work for 10 hours a day? Not so much!
A couple of weekends ago, my friend Rachael and I decided to check out the Brighton Artbox cafe, the UK’s first dedicated character themed cafe. The current theme is Pusheen which I think is staying until the end of October, before a new character comes along!
A while ago, the lovely people at Mercure got in touch and asked if I fancied staying in their Brighton hotel with a plus one. Whilst I would have loved J to come with me, he wasn’t feeling up to it, so I knew that one of my best friends, Charlie, would be the perfect choice to come and check it out with me 😀
As she lives in London, we decided to make a day of it, shopping in Brighton first, before enjoying a complementary three course meal in the hotel’s restaurant, then relaxing in our room while doing some serious lazing around and TV watching!
As months go, August was pretty spectacular!! Not only was it my birthday but I had two whole weeks of annual leave and the weather was glorious 😀 😀
