It’s been a strange mixture of good and bad, as most are, but frankly considering the lows we’ve came out surprisingly on top, in the end.
Q2 literally starts with me beginning a new job, that’s my dream job. It is surreal and exciting but also daunting in the usual ways. I am of course very grateful I was able to find it, and in the end actually have two incredible positions to chose from. I hope I have made the right choice.
My MH has been up and down but impro9by the day now. Weather, easing, and new job will be helping but also minor changes day to like more meditation, self reflection, vulnerablity with friends, and slowing down.
Partner had found a new calling and that is exciting me and her. It is good to see her throwing herself into something and makes me really want to do the same frankly.
We have managed to navigate through the schooling at home and my kids seem better with each passing day. I think they’re annoyed that it is the school holidays. Will see how the next few weeks shake out haha.
My Mum has been very unwell. Suspected heart attack, three weeks in hospital. Anyway, thankfully they have a good diagnosis and are hoping to have her feeling better all the time. It has been tough for her as the restrictions were already impacting her MH and now even more so frankly.
The old work was a disaster towards the end. Really made me feel sick. Doctor gave me a load of time off to help with it though. That pissed them off. Fuck them.
My dog is getting old. He seems sleepy all the time. Just reminds me that some day, hopefully in a few years, he is going to go. It is just so sudden that a labrador just slows right up. Still a cutie pie though.
We lost out on a house we liked loads. Bastards pulled out as they couldn’t find anything to buy to replace it. Ah well.
