Life Lately #47

Well, August is here, and it’s ridiculously hot here in the UK (well…for the UK anyway!)! I should be grateful it isn’t raining for once, but since I work outside, I’ve been really struggling with the heat. Especially as we’ve been really short staffed at the moment so I’ve been doing a lot of overtime. The sun is all well and good for a while, but after a few hours of walking around in it carrying heavy bags it gets a bit much (I’m a postwoman, in case you were wondering!). It kind of feels like I haven’t done much… Read more »

Last month’s Life Lately post was pretty doom-and-gloomy, what with the world having seemingly gone up in flames over the course of 2020, and this month the world is still much the same in that sense. But on a personal level, this has been a really amazing month! In fact, I have some pretty huge news: my boyfriend Jay and I got engaged! To be honest, we’ve been saying for a long time that we’re both basically in this for life, and have kind of known we would get married…but we’ve officially formalised it, just in time for our fifth… Read more »

So what can I really say about this past month? With the UK still in COVID-19 lockdown I’ve pretty much just been going to work and coming home, so I haven’t too much to report. I did have a week off work last week though, which I’d booked ages ago. It was a shame that I couldn’t really do anything or go on holiday or anything, but you know what? I feel like I really, really needed that week off. I know that right now a lot of people would give anything not to be cooped up at home, but… Read more »

I don’t have a huge amount of things to report this month, since the UK is officially in lockdown, and so obviously I haven’t really done anything other than go to work, and then stay home. But needless to say, things are still crazy and scary in the world, and like so many others, I can’t wait for things to get back to normal (or whatever the new normal will be!). It’s horrible knowing that no one knows when that is going to be though, especially as I can’t see my family in person until then. But at least we… Read more »

So this months Life Lately post is pretty late, but I have been so hopeless at blogging these past few months! And considering how crazy things have been and how the world seems to have randomly gone to hell this past month, I haven’t really been in the mood. On a personal note, I haven’t really done anything of note this past month. I’d say I’ve just been staying at home other than going to work because of all the panic, but to be honest I’ve always been pretty anti-social! In terms of how things are in the UK right… Read more »

January seems to have dragged on, as Januaries often do, but on the whole I’ve had a decent month. Work has been relatively quiet and unstressful compared to the Christmas rush, and I’ve been enjoying taking it easier! It also helps that I’ve been off work for two weeks thanks to some annual leave I had to use up (I’m back in tomorrow unfortunately though). I haven’t really done much with my time off to be honest, other than staying at home and chilling in my pyjamas, but I feel like I really needed the break. Plus I got in… Read more »

January is here, and the festive season is all over and done with. Maybe it’s just me, but does anyone else find it all quite anticlimactic? I mean there’s such a huge build-up to Christmas and New Year, and then you get to January and just feel like…well, that’s over. And before you know it, everything is back to normal, and it feels like nothing ever happened. Don’t get me wrong, I had a really lovely Christmas. As per tradition, my boyfriend and I got up and opened presents, and then headed down to my parents’ house for a delicious… Read more »

November seems to have just passed in a blur! It’s been such a busy month, yet super unproductive at the same time. Most of the month has been taken up with work, as I’ve been doing a fair bit of overtime in the run up to Christmas (I’m a postwoman, so as you can imagine, Christmas gets hectic, what with all those Christmas cards and parcels to deliver!). It’s all good, because I really do need the extra money so I can finally get my Christmas shopping underway (yes, it’s the 8th December and I have bought one thing so… Read more »

November is here, and I am absolutely baffled by how close it is to Christmas already. I always intend to start my Christmas shopping in October, but so far it hasn’t happened, so I’m hoping I can get it all done this month. I really, really don’t want to end up battling my way through busy shops in December, but that’s what always ends up happening! October was quite a busy month though, even without doing any Christmas shopping. It started out with a week off work, which I feel like I really needed. As I spoke about in this… Read more »

This month had just been a regular, boring old month full of work until a few days ago, when it took a pretty sad turn. My dog of 15 years, Mollie, sadly had to be put down, so its obviously been a sad time for my family. She’d been having problems for the last year or so, mostly with dementia, and it was sad that she didn’t really seem to recognise her own name, and she was constantly falling over and getting herself stuck places. She could no longer walk far, had grown really skinny, and had all sorts of… Read more »
