A life update in verbs #3

Wednesday, 1 February 2017


Haven't done one of these since December, oops! Before we get started, check out that luscious green bath - I used Guardian of the Forest from Lush recently and it was exquisite.

Watching: Brooklyn Nine Nine season 4, Uncle season 3Frontier season 1, Call the Midwife season 6, and Chewing Gum season 2. I love this time of year when all the good telly starts back again.

Reading: Not a great deal. January was a tough month for me mentally so I've not been feeling up to doing many of my hobbies. I haven't stitched anything new which is kinda sad, I was looking forward to jumping back into cross stitch this year. I suppose now January's over things might get better - there's nothing more miserable than the first month of the year, especially when the weather is naff and everyone's a bit skint.

Eating: Mini Eggs! Creme Eggs! Lindt bunnies! All the Easter chocolate basically, and it's only the 1st of February.

Drinking: So much water. Where I work gets really hot (working in a kitchen and having next to no air conditioning... yeah) so I get through about 2-3 bottles during a shift. Water is fab for your body and mind so I'm trying to push myself to get through 3-4 a day now. I've been tempted to download a water intake app but let's be honest, who has time for that?! And who even remembers to keep updating it?!?!

Loving: Kånken backpacks. I fawned over them on the internet for months, thinking "I'll never be able to afford one of these" which was a fat lie because truthfully I just couldn't justify spending that much money on a backpack, but I finally bit the bullet in Jan. In fact, I bought two because I had a major case of YOLO. So I'm now the proud owner of two Kånkens which I never thought I'd say.

Feeling: Knackered? I did a long shift today and even a bath and a long sit down hasn't rescued my poor feet. I was struggling with my longer hours at first but now I'm getting into it and it's not as stressful. Yeah I'm pooped like every day, but I love my colleagues and my job is pretty great, plus thinking about how I'll be rolling in it at the end of Feb is getting me through it all.

Thinking: About taking a wee hiatus... honestly blogging has taken a backseat in my life lately, but I blame a few things: 1) world news is dominating everything (this has been the case with many bloggers who have taken blogging breaks because of the politics in America etc. affecting their health), 2) increased work hours means less time sitting at my laptop, which I really miss but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, and 3) I've gone onto a higher dosage of SSRIs and I think they're messing with me a little while I adjust. It's not too bad, but my mood has been a bit up and down and my appetite is non-existent so I've been fairly distracted by that.

I really do apologise for the lack of blogging (I feel like I apologise about that a lot). If you like anti-Trump tweets, memes, and me talking about mundane rubbish, then follow me on Twitter.

Hope you all have a fab Feb. P.S. Happy birthday, dad!
