A Month Off

It was never intended so, but it appears that I took a month off from blogging! In truth, I’ve had very little to actually talk about. Since my holiday in Filey, I’ve been working overtime every week between my own store and to help out another local branch!

I’ve been exhausted, and unsociable, but am now determined to get back on track, both socially and with my diet!

Some of my plans for the month ahead include doing a little bit of work on the garden; I want to build some planters and get new plants down, as well as a huge amount of weeding and trimming. I’d also like to get my bathroom painted, but every month I seem to push that back a little more.

For some reason, the idea of finishing the bathroom fills me with absolute dread! I want it done, and it’s not really such a hard job. I just don’t seem to be able to motivate myself enough to do it!

I also need to get back on dog walks, as I’ve really slacked on taking the dog for her morning walk lately. It’s not fair on her, I know, but I’ve just not felt like it!

BUT I WILL GET THERE!

Stephen.

MORNING EVERYONE! Can you believe that it’s March ALREADY?! I can’t. This year is already racing by! Lets just hope that the weather manages to cheer up a little bit.

I didn’t managed to get a post up last week, as I was away on holiday in Filey, Yorkshire. However, my weight the night before we left was stone to 11stn 13, which I was over the moon with, however, due to poor diet choices and excessive alcohol consumption whilst away, I have obviously climbed back in to the twelve stone zone. I WILL BEAT IT THOUGH!

I also managed to do a lot more walking last week, which I was over the moon with, and am now determined to continue with now that I am back home! *crossed fingers*

Not much is happening at the moment, but in the next week weeks I’m hoping to get started on tidying my back garden up, as well as getting rid of a huge pile of rubbish that I’ve let accumulate at the end of my drive whilst we’ve been plodding on with the house.

I’m also hoping to make some progress towards a better paid, higher position at work again over the coming weeks and months. This month two years ago I was a manager, but unfortunately, due to company shrinkage at the time, my store closed and I (luckily) managed to step back down to a general assistant position in the shop it all started at!

However, the last two years have been a real struggle with money, but slowly things are getting back on track. My credit card definitely is looking more positive these days, which I’m over the moon with!

Have a lovely day everyone!

Stephen.
