A global pandemic and a trip to the dentist

Like many others, I hadn’t been to the dentist for well over a year. In fact, when I asked my dentist on arrival into the room when I was last seen she told me it was November 2019. I paused a moment to consider all that had happened in the time between visits. My gosh.… Continue reading A global pandemic and a trip to the dentist

As good as it gets – the supermarket

We are all very used to the idea of a trip to the supermarket being as good as it gets. Especially for the past few months it has been about all we have been legitimately allowed to do. No longer do conversations go: “How was your week off?” “Great, we went to Spain. It was… Continue reading As good as it gets – the supermarket

SPRING has almost sprung and so has our gloominess

…out of the way! Let’s face it, the past year has been full of doom and gloom. Everywhere. It has been relentless. Keyworkers are on their knees without much energy left to continue. Those who have been shielding long to see the outdoors. People on furlough are praying they still have a job at the… Continue reading SPRING has almost sprung and so has our gloominess

My Lockdown day

I haven’t really experienced lockdown in true stay-at-home-for-days-weeks-months-on-end style. I go to work six days a week, try to lay in on my one day off and usually wake up at 5 a.m. due to my body’s inability to break the routine. Today (it is a Sunday, I am writing this on a Sunday but… Continue reading My Lockdown day

Honesty is the best policy, I hope you agree

Recently I’ve been feeling pretty flat yet frantic. Not drastically so just I’ve felt lower more often than I’ve felt like smiling. Anger has got the better of me and I feel so cross. All of the time. My head is so busy yet sometimes so empty. My fretting of the future has been amplified.… Continue reading Honesty is the best policy, I hope you agree

2020: shall we all just scream for ice cream?

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream! A well known phrase which, while drinking the third beer on my Sunday last week I desperately wanted to perform. I wouldn’t have stopped at the end though. Oh no. I’d have screamed and screamed and screamed until they could hear me, er, somewhere over… Continue reading 2020: shall we all just scream for ice cream?

Where’s my 2020 diary?

2020. What even is a diary by this stage?…. I’m a sucker for a page to day diary and, under normal circumstances, would use one all the time. Every task I intend to complete each week is noted down on the day I will complete it. It helps me remain focussed and disciplined with my… Continue reading Where’s my 2020 diary?

If I had a tail to wag…

Seem a strange concept? Here me out. If you are a regular reader, you will now be aware, I am trying SO HARD to cling onto the positives during this pandemic. SO HARD. The other day after another busy day at work I was sipping on a beer and trying desperately to stay awake past… Continue reading If I had a tail to wag…
