Life In Lockdown!
I had an email I was expecting this week but my response was not what I expected! I knew the payment for my domain for this blog was up for renewal but I'd told myself that I wasn't going to pay and renew it as I said the same last year and I've not really made any effort with it. I mean, I've not blogged for nearly 6 months so that's 50% of the payment that is pointless!
But with us all being in lockdown, I thought there's no better time than to give it ago again - especially now I'm part time at work, I'll have plenty of time to get to grips with writing again. So that's what I'm going to do (£100 says by the end of the year I've given up again) - but I've dug out my old blog planners and set myself targets and lists of what I'm going to post about so here we go!
I've come up with a list of things that I've been doing through lockdown that I can turn into posts; the standard posts like what I'm watching on TV/Netflix, Apps I'm living for, what I'm cooking and baking (and drinking... obvs!) and various bits and pieces just so that if anyone has been feeling a little like me lately, this could give a little motivation and inspiration of how to kill a few hours of time.
For me, I've coped pretty well until the last week or so personally - I've even, dare I say, been enjoying it. Me and Nick have never spent so much time together and so far I've only wanted to divorce him once so we're doing well, especially as we now have a puppy since I last posted. Ralph has been with us nearly 7 months and has definitely taken us to breaking point several times but we're working hard with him and I literally cannot imagine life without him now - I'll be doing a post on our "Puppy Favourites" too as I know this is what I was looking for when we knew we were getting him. But the last week or so has been hard - it's started to dawn on me that Caroline's anniversary is coming up and I won't be able to celebrate this with my Mum or Dad, and to make it harder I'm constantly seeing groups of people hanging around the pub or meeting up (I'm sure if you follow me on Twitter/Instagram you would've seen my meltdown rant this weekend!) - but despite all this, I need to make the most of the time we've got and not waste it which is my biggest worry, I need to turn it into a positive and a big way to do that is get my blog, which was once a massive love of mine, something I was SO proud of, back off the ground and back into work!
I hope everyone is keeping well through all of this and I can't wait to keep writing and posting - already just writing this is making me excited to make the most of this and maybe restart it for my future - we have a lot of catching up to do.
