My posting continues to be sporadic as I find my blogging groove again. Part of this is down to things being pretty hectic lately. I’ve enjoyed a busy bank holiday weekend that’s included seeing some good friends, winning a competition and visiting a big music event.
The music event was the second day of the BBC Biggest Weekend here in Swansea. I’m not great in the sun as I burn and get sunstroke really easily, and it was a very warm and sunny day. Despite frequently topping up my factor 30, I still caught the sun a little. I enjoyed the music and I also met up with an old friend from Comprehensive school who was there with her family.
I also managed to win a competition. You know those ‘like and share’/’like and tag’ things on Facebook that you possibly assume nobody ever wins? Well, I won one! It was for breakfast for four at a local bar/eatery and I was able to share it with friends who were visiting for the bank holiday. The sun was shining again and we also got to have a walk and ice cream in the sun.
This week my self-care is focusing on decluttering again. Getting rid of ‘stuff’ feels freeing and I like the space it gives. With that in mind, I’m going to be doing this at work and at home. It’s all about prioritising what is really useful and valuable to me (and I don’t mean in monetary terms). I’m a natural hoarder even though I hate it, so it’s going to be a challenge.
