Honestly, these past two months have been a whirlwind, with difficult situations to overcome and the return to work, but I’ve had a rewarding month.
I am coming out of lockdown with a new refreshing feeling and more purpose to life. Especially when it comes to a routine, my weeks are now no longer rollling into one another because I have some more structure to each day.
Returning to the office has been great, I’ve got back into a nice routine since working from home. I didn’t dislike working from home, but after a while it got very monotonous and felt like groundhog day … everyday!
May, June and July have seemed to just fly by, my life hasn’t really changed in those three months, although I have been getting out and about more in nature, I’ve been trying to have one long walk a week.
I feel like I keep going on about the nature in my local area but I can’t stop talking about it. There’s so many lovely places to walk to or around such as parks and woodland.
2020 will be a memorable year simply because of Covid, but I’m beginning to think it will also be one of the prettiest. We have had some gorgeous weather over the past month, even though it has rained I think it’s been one of the most beautiful years.
The rain we have had combined with the sun has made all the plants and flowers bloom, everywhere you go there are beautiful plants and flowers growing.
The easing of the lockdown restrictions: cafes and bars can now open in the UK. I will admit I am still a bit hesitant with bars as I don’t go out very often.
However, I have been to a few restaurants and it’s actually been a really nice experience, the fewer people there make it a nicer environment.
So here are some things that I am looking forward to for the next month because I haven’t really done much this month other than go back to work.
- More local adventures: I feel like I haven’t done a long one in a while, so I can’t wait to go on a few long walks in my local area and discover more nature.
- More visits restaurants, haha yes more food. But I’ve got my mum’s birthday coming up to celebrate, so why not make the most of it and go for a nice meal.
- My Boyfriend, Aaron has been cooking a lot and over the past few weeks, I’ve been helping. We made pizzas, scones and sausage rolls, they were all amazing, so I’m hoping we can do a lot more!
It’s going to be good to start going out more but I am going to miss the things we’ve been doing at home!
- Summer holidays: Yes! I am going on holiday in September, my boyfriend and I are going to Norfolk.
I haven’t been there before so it will be interesting to see what we can discover and there will be many blog posts coming up in September and October about all of the places I’ve been to.
The rest of the year is definitely looking more promising, especially with life becoming more normal.
I’m definitely looking forward to my holiday to Norfolk, I love exploring new places so I will definitely be taking a bucket list of places I want to see.
Let me know what you’ve been up to throughout July!
