Happy Sunday, everyone! There’s a chill in the air and it’s grey outside. I’m one with the couch and it feels like it’s been a while since I actually just sat and chilled. It’s been a busy week but a really good one in many ways. Yes, there’s been some shitty moments but it wouldn’t be my life without that! Anyway, here is everything I am grateful for from 1st March to 7th March 2020:
Spending a couple of hours on Sunday morning at the beach with a book
Finishing an interesting and fun book – Such a fun age by Kiley Reid
Interesting catch up on Sunday evening
Changes at work – some will involve new and interesting challenges for me
Checking out a bar that’s new to me – Bitter Phew – and trying out new craft beers
Catch up with my friend AL on Tuesday night
Attending a book launch on Wednesday night at Better Read than Dead, getting my book signed by Richard Glover
Catch up with friends I’ve made via Instagram and then met in real life before and after the book launch
Watching an incredible cricket semi-final between Australia and South Africa on Thursday night. With the rain earlier in the day, we didn’t think the game go ahead but it was a fantastic shortened game of cricket with a brilliant result!
Dinner, drinks and laughs with my friends on Friday night
A deliberately slow Saturday with life admin during the day after an exhausting week
The brilliant gig on Saturday night with Mono, Meniscus and Jo Quail
Catch up with a friend at a boutique beer bar before we headed to the gig
Gym a few times this week as I slowly try to get back into exercising again
It’s been a great social week and also once filled with creativity. I’ve had moments of sadness and anxiety but I’ve had good friends who have supported me through it. For that, I am well and truly grateful. It is a reminder though that despite what can seem like a fun and outgoing life, there are battles underlying it all and it’s not always easy. But it also means I don’t take all of this for granted!
How was your week?
