Happy Sunday everyone! It’s a late one here but as it’s still Sunday, it’ll do. I can’t believe it’s been a week since I’ve been home. By all means, it has been pretty uneventful but it’s good to be back. I’ve been back at work but have only just eased into the gym. Hopefully from tomorrow, it’ll be back to my usual routine. Anyway, it’s time now though, to look back at all that I’m grateful for from 22nd September to 28th September 2019:
Getting home after a long-ass flight and almost 36 hours of barely any sleep
Two affectionate and clingy cats to greet me and stay with me on getting home
Watching the Birds of Tokyo gig in Newcastle on Sunday night
Surviving a snakey episode! In case you didn’t see my Instagram stories, on Monday, I found – or rather, Buttons found a diamond python in the backyard. While I know it won’t harm me in any way, I’m not so certain of the cats!
Being missed at work for my expertise – I felt quite valued when my team leader said that
Being able to ease back into work
Catching up with my friend NG and her cats
Going back to the gym – first for yoga with a friend on Thursday night and then leg-day on my own on Saturday
Buying three new books and starting one of those on Saturday night
Having my own space, enjoying my coffee, chatting with my friends in the same time zone, sitting on the couch and reading, watching Netflix, and cuddling with my cats – basically, being home
While this week hasn’t been about travel or the big things, it also brings to front how grounding it is to be home. I love exploring but I also love places, connections and the small things that ground me.
How has your week been?
