We’re getting close to the half point of 2015, how scary is that!? It doesn’t seem that long ago since it was Christmas so I can’t quite get my head round that we are now in the month of May. How did that happen?!….
To try and process how fast the time is going, I am going to look back on the last couple of months. I still have plans to move away for a while, if only for 6 months, just to test myself – if not straight away then at some point (I just need to sort my life out!!!!) but I’ve taken on some freelance projects that I need to focus on for the next 4 weeks. I haven’t been concentrating on my work for the past 2 months, I’ve been really distracted lately wishing I was somewhere else, but what I need to do right now is crack on and get things ticked off my to-do list. Work aside, I’ve been feeling a bit more uplifted and I’m pretty sure the weather has something to do with it. I was feeling soooo miserable towards the end of Winter, I just wanted to stay in bed the whole time!
At the end of March, I had both Oscar and Bonnie stay with me for a week. Having the pets stay with me is always a joy! Bonnie made me more active too, I kept to the routine that she is used to and I enjoyed our walks together!
The start of April, during Easter, saw a trip to Newcastle. My sister and I caught the train and spent the day walking around the city. We ended up at The Botanist for tea, had some fruity mocktails and some nibbles before heading home. I don’t think the food is anything spectacular but their cocktails are delicious, I highly recommend them! I also really like the atmosphere and decor in there, it just feels so welcoming and comfortable.
I also took a flying visit to London for a meeting and for the first time ever, I wasn’t nervous about finding my way around the various places I need to be. I’ve been to London on my own so many times but I just felt extra prepared this time! I’m not good with directions or reading maps, but I used the street view on Google Map and walked myself through the streets, noting down all the shops or landmarks that I need to walk past. I literally studied the area to make sure I wouldn’t get lost! Does anyone else do the same?! Thank God for Google Street View!
Anyway! I’m looking forward to the next few weeks completing some projects and feeling a sense of achievement!
What have you guys been up to lately?
