Monthly Roundup • May

monthly roundup may 2021

My life seems to be on a bit of a never-ending loop of sameness lately. I know it has a lot to do with the lockdowns and things will get better soon, but personally I still don’t really feel comfortable going to many places, so for now, I am still in for most of the time. Somehow in my super eventful life, I completely forgot to do a roundup post in April. The days went by and then before I knew it, we were here anyway. I love writing these posts though, they help me to reflect on the month gone by and even when I felt like nothing has happened, I always enjoy looking back to find there is plenty to reflect on.

As usual I spent most of the time with my fur babies. No matter what I am doing in the day, I always have one of them near me….usually Frank. They just keep the best company and definitely help to pull me through the more miserable days.

May was also a good month as I turned 30! I’m not going to lie, I was dreading this birthday deep down. There is something about 30, a stigma that you have to have your life in a certain place before you get to it. I done a lot of overthinking in the lead up to my birthday, where I felt I should be, what I needed to change. But the truth is, nothing. I can be whoever I want to be whether I am 30, 60 or 90. Anyone can! It is silly to feel like you need to act differently when you get to a certain age. It took a lot of soul searching to come to that conclusion, but I am so glad that I did. On this topic, how cute is the Baby Yoda dressing gown that Lewis got me for my birthday, it is just the best.

I went out for my first drink in over 18 months. My friend took me out for a birthday gin and it tasted beautiful. We sat outside and it chucked it down, but it was so lovely to get out and do something different.

May was quite a nice month actually, I had some holiday from work, chilled and managed to reset myself a little. Let’s hope the rest of June is just as nice. ❤

    Glad you had a nice birthday! Your Baby Yoda dressing gown is so cute! I enjoy reading your monthly roundups, it’s surprising how much we actually get done in a month, even with the restrictions. I’ve been writing daily blogs since the end of May, it’s a challenge but I’m enjoying it.

      Thank you lovely! 🙂 definitely, it’s not until you look back you realise how much actually happened.

      Wow, well done! 😀
