August is always a good month for me as there’s usually loads of warm sunny days, I take a couple of weeks off at the end of the month to relax and it’s also my birthday month!!
I’ve now been working at home for the past three months, which is longer than I was working in the office for!! It’s kind of become the new norm but it’s still been a bit of a struggle. I’ve now been referred for CBT therapy to help with my anxiety and I really hope it helps!! June hasn’t been all bad though; I’ve started going out for walks again and had loads of chats with my mum and dad which has really helped!!
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 ❤️❤️
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 🙁
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 😀 😀
It’s my first chatty catch-up of the year!! I hope you’ve all been well and have survived January? It’s felt like such a long and dreary month, but I feel like I’ve been super productive (for the first couple of weeks anyway) which is lovely!!
Last week I wrote a post about staying safe while doing DIY round the house (you can read it here if you missed it), this week I wanted to chat about some really easy DIY projects you can do round the home.
At the moment we have several issues with trying to make our house look homely (in my eyes anyway):
If you read my blog a lot, you might have seen I wrote a post recently about some of the home goals I want to achieve this year (if you’re new to the blog, then hi, and you can catch up here). I’m looking forward to getting started on the projects I have (you know, once the weather gets better); except for one major flaw in my plan. I’m so clumsy. And until I moved in with J, I wasn’t particularly savvy at staying safe while attempting DIY projects! But he’s taught me a hell of a lot in the last three years.
Back in February, I shared the first part of our garden renovation project (which you can read about here). This post is all about part two of the project; the back garden.
