I went to the dentist today! It was mostly good news, turns out you can over brush… who knew. I used to never smile with my teeth, I was so self conscious. I’m not sure when I changed but now I can’t smile without it being a big cheesy grin! Life is a lot easier when you work hard to stop caring what people think about you. I love my teeth because I love smiling and that’s all that matters 😄
I’m onto book five! I’m slowing down now, as they get a bit meatier (and the story gets more frustrating!) I’m a quarter of the way though after some evening reading the last couple days.
I went on a run this morning! I could not be bothered but then I managed to run a fast last km which made me happy! I do have it in me, I just need to get out of my head a bit, which is hard right now.
Today Nic and I made a pack lunch and went to the park to eat, just to shake things up a bit. We ended up watching these parakeets for about 15 minutes trying to work out what they were waiting for that was inside that hole… They kept fighting over it but it looked like a squirrel? It certainly kept us entertained though!
Another autumnal walk today to get us out of the house. I wasn’t in the best mood today… But it was a nice walk none the less. I spent most of the rest of the day napping then reading more Harry Potter (onto the fifth book!) Let’s hope tomorrow will be better after a good night’s sleep.
I’m so happy to be back reunited with the wonderful Mariana after her three months in Portugal then two week quarantine!! We were finally allowed to meet up for a socially distanced walk in the Autumnal sun with a chance to say hello to her adorable shiny new baby! It’s filled me with so much love and joy.
Staring out the study window today pretending I’m on holiday rather than in Thornton Heath… A girl can dream!
I actually had a really productive day today, week in fact, at work. I got so much done that I’m really happy with. Onto the weekend!
Since we can’t hang out with any friends, Nic and I decided to get the fire pit out instead! We made jacket potatoes and finished them off on the fire whilst drinking mulled wine. It was honestly one of my most favourite evenings of lockdown! The stars, the fireworks in the background, all wonderful.
My first run since I fell last week! It was great. I headed out first thing so it was quite chilly but the sun was shining and it felt glorious being outside in the early hours. Half way through my run I stopped to swing on the rope swing, pausing my audio book to take in the birds chirping, the sun shining and the wind whirring past my ears. It was heaven.
I was just saying the other day it’s strangely mild still even though we’re quickly speeding towards winter. Today quickly acted those feelings as it was freezing! In the evening it dropped to 1 degrees and I was missing my gloves… I am happy about this though deep down as it was slightly disconcertingly warm before…
It was thoroughly bleak this morning with heavy, diagonal rain… I had already said if it carried on like that I was would refuse to leave the house at lunchtime! Luckily the weather did a complete u-turn and look at the incredible skies of our lunchtime walk! It’s not even chilly yet, suspiciously mild! But it made for a lovely midday break from work.
