It’s been almost a month since I’ve sat down and caught up with everything. I know that saying I’m busy will get most people snort-laughing because everybody’s busy. It’s the thing these days… So I’m not going to say that.
What I am going to say is that August has been a blur. And so has most of September. I’m finding that it’s just this time of year. Because, exactly a year ago, it was exactly the same. I felt like a wrung out nat lappie. So it’s not new.
But here’s a catch-up nevertheless:
- I’m still trying the exercise thing, and I’m starting to see results. Yesterday was the first time where I felt energised after a workout. It’s been baby steps, but I’ll take it.
- Healthy eating is wonky at best. Hopefully, salad season will bring some change to the routine!
- My Ellie bear has been through a round of skin biopsies to find out what is causing her distress. When she was admitted earlier this year for gastro, the vet suggested some testing to find out what’s wrong. So, roll forward, we’re waiting for blood test results confirming what my baby bear is allergic to.
- I’m still knitting myself into a stupor to complete the blanket I started in March. The squares are coming along but hells bells. It’s taking forever, and I haven’t even started stitching the squares together. Ons a side note, I’m happy to be learning a new skill. I’ve also made new friends through knitting. A super added bonus.
Other than that, I’m starting to look forward to Christmas at the coast with the in-laws. We’ve always just been around JHB for the festive season. So, I’m looking forward to the break.
And that’s it. A summary of manic-me. Hoping to calm down soon in preparation of December.
