I’m back! Between staying at my parents and coming down with a bit of a bug I completely lost track of time and before I knew it my journal had fallen behind!
Monday 25th October 2021
Seeing as I fell asleep so quickly last night and stayed asleep I was ready to get up when my alarm went off. I got up and made a cups of tea and had a cereal bar for breakfast before getting dressed and ready for the day.
The first thing on my list to do was get a little bit of shopping for the next few days so I headed off down to Aldi. It was raining on and off but I luckily just about missed each of the showers by the time I got back.
I chilled out for a little bit after putting my shopping away before heading into town as I had a few things I needed to get for Christmas. Town was actually quite busy but despite this I managed to get everything I needed.
Once I got home I had a quick chat with my Mum before I wrapped up the things I had bought. I pretty much spent the afternoon watching Wentworth before jumping in the shower.
I am going to have an early night tonight after reading for a bit as I am going into the office to work for the first time since March 2020!

It felt very strange to have to get ready and go into work this morning as I was working in the office for the first time since March 2020!
I was quite groggy to begin with as I didn’t have time for my morning tea and I was trying to make sure I got into work a bit earlier so that I could swap my laptop over.
It was quite nice being in the office for a change and actually being able to speak to people face to face but I do think I prefer working from home.
The day went by quite quickly and before I knew it it was time to pack up and head to the bus stop to get the bus home.
When I got home I had some dinner and a bit of chat before heading off to crash for the evening.

It was my day off today although I forgot to turn my alarms off so I work up a bit earlier than I had wanted to. However despite this I stayed in bed dozing for a little while before eventually getting up and dressed.
I decided to head straight out for a walk and get out into the fresh air to wake myself up a bit.
Once I got back I had a quick cups of tea and breakfast.
My day consisted of flicking through my uni work, getting overwhelmed and watching Wentworth instead.
I have come to the conclusion today that I really need to get my routine back in order and stick to it when I am away too so that I can keep on top of everything that I need to do.

When my alarm and light turned on this morning I could have quite happily stayed in bed for a while longer.
As soon as I got out of bed I got dressed, made a cup of tea and had a quick breakfast.
The day seemed to go by quite slowly compared to working in the office.
Late morning I had a bit of drama where my watch overheated and burnt my arm. It had done a few strange things over the last couple of weeks and had overheated a few times. I rang O2 and they have arranged for a replacement to come tomorrow.
The rest of the day went by without anything too exciting happening.
After I finished work I rang my parents for a quick chat.
I cannot wait for this week to be over with and I can see Marysia next week. This time of year always seems to be really crazy for us so that we struggle to see each other.
Friday 29th October 2021
Considering I have been on a day off today, I have been quite busy.
When I first woke up it was absolutely chucking it down so I decided to wait it out for a bit to go on my walk. As a result I had a bit of a slow start to the day.
After I had had my breakfast and a cups of tea I hoovered my room and tidied up a little bit so I wouldn’t have any distractions whilst I was studying.
I managed to get a couple of hours of studying done before getting ready to go out for a walk and get some study snacks from the shop. I thought I had timed it right to go during a break in the rain… I got absolutely soaked. It did feel very autumnal.
Once I got back I did a little bit more studying before making my lunch.
I had a quick catch up with my Mum before getting back to studying.
I have managed to get back up to date with my coursework and submitted my assignment which I wasn’t expecting to get done today so I am happy that I have!
My evening is going to be spent watching the last episode of Wentworth and then I will read for a while before heading to bed.
Saturday 30th October 2021
When my alarm went off this morning I was not prepared to get up. I spent a little bit of time flicking through Facebook before eventually getting out of bed and making a cups of tea.
My head felt a bit stuffy and headachy so I did a lateral flow test to be on the safe side (it was negative) took some paracetamol and got dressed.
Once I was ready for the day I got set up for work and read for a little bit.
It felt like the day dragged a little bit, which probably wasn’t helped by the fact I wasn’t feeling 100%.
My evening has been pretty chilled, I had a nice hot shower, spent a bit of time reading and also tidied up a little bit.
I need to put some more cream on the burn on my wrist and then I will be getting cosy to hopefully finish the book I am reading.
Sunday 31st October 2021
I was so glad the clocks went back last night as I definitely needed that extra hour in bed.
I didn’t give myself too long between getting up and getting ready for working so I was pretty much up, dressed and working today.
It was quite busy but that helped time to go by quite quickly until I started clock watching this afternoon and then time seemed to stand still.
I was so glad when the clock hit 7 and I was finished for the day!
I have a bit of a later start tomorrow which I am looking forward to.
The rest of my evening will probably be spent reading my book and chilling out before having a relatively early night.
