Day 177 – Monday

Last night one of our friends turned 40 and we celebrated with an online murder mystery night. I was dreading it to be honest.

It started after my bed time (9pm) and I was worried everyone would be pissed on camera trying to talk over everyone.

It actually turned out to be one of the funniest nights of the virus so far. Everyone dressed up in ridiculous outfits for their characters (think raiding your kids dressing up box) and put on silly accents. Although it appeared everyone was drinking, I didnt feel left out, nor was I embarrassed when the call ended by anything I’d said and done. We had fun and it was lovely hearing my husband stick on a silly accent and properly laugh.

I also woke up with no hangover, which would have never happened a year previously.

Monday is back and it’s not a blue one over here. BB and I have done the swings in the cold, blown bubbles in the park, I’ve made homemade pesto and have a chicken stew bubbling away.

I know I’m really lucky as I’m not working this year, in fact I feel really grateful. I’m trying to soak it all up as she’s starting full time nursery mid August as I start my PGCE. I predict I’ll be a blubberly mess leading up to it (I may have sobbed slightly when replying with her start date earlier).

In replenish news, I woke up early did yoga and my skin care routine. Still drinking water and will have an early night to night.

So that’s everything over here. How is everyone else? Hope you’re all well and staying safe.

  1. I am going to practice being grateful every day. Writing some things down before I go to sleep at night. My negative thoughts are taking control and I can’t let that happen. Sounds like you had a lovely day and that birthday celebration sounds fun! Xxx

    1. Claire, I just found an index card with steps written out regarding just that! It must be many years old and I don’t remember writing it πŸ€” but it is my handwriting. It’s good info and very concise. If you’re interested, I’d be glad to write it out and get it to you in a PM- Do you have a Contact page?

  2. That all sounds great – especially the not working and getting time with your babe. I am forever grateful to not be working. Ok I guess I technically work because I get paid for watching an extra child, but still. We are ok over here, SLOWLY regaining our strength. It’s the brain fog that is the worst, hubs is having an awful time concentrating on work. It’s like everything is fuzzy and you can’t focus on anything. Reading articles on the WHY of this is terrifying, they think the virus damages your brain cells with inflammation. But, on we go … the sun is out and my kids are excited about ice skating so there’s that!
