Hey, me again –
Welcome back to my little corner of the internet – So as you’ve seen, here in the UK we’re back on lockdown (thanks Boris).
With how bad my last lockdown went; I’ve somehow ended up isolating with Will this time – and not going to lie to you, it’s totally different to what I thought it would be. I say this whilst i’m sat here 32 minutes into the Liverpool, Man City game, whilst he’s “nipped downstairs” a good 20 minutes ago.. I think it’s time to change the channel.
The majority of mine and Will’s relationship has been in lockdown. I’ve had 3 months back at work and only 1 month back in events (It’s a 2 job life), and now once again I am very, very unemployed.
Me and Will are two of the most stubborn people ever, ask anybody – But I’m known as being “quite” feisty, and he’s known as being “quite easy going”. With me he’s feisty, and I’m easy going when it comes to him.. at times!
Two feisty people living together for a while, what could go wrong, right?! Imagine me touching wood right now – and I ask you to do the same.
We’re 4 days in, he came here on Wednesday night after my last event for a while which was pretty emotional. Thursday we had a busy-ish day, got all our last minute bits and pieces tied up and then Friday we started lockdown properly. He’s currently running 5k a day over 30 days to raise money for Movember – Check out his Movember link and donate if you can – It’s on his instagram http://www.instagram.com/__batesfitness.
But anyway, less promo, more blog post – Guys are hard work aren’t they?
It’s like the little things seem to be the hardest. I am loving Will being here but I’d love it more if he didn’t leave his wet towel on the end of the bed after every use, or if he didn’t take the corner of the quilt off my feet every night OR if he didn’t have to sleep with the window open when it’s pretty much -2345543 degrees outside.. okay slight exaggeration, but you get my point. Guys are hard work, but I’m pretty sure I’m probably harder.
On Friday I did absolutely nothing, Will made me do absolutely nothing because without me realising, I needed a break and I needed a day to do just that – absolutely nothing.
I read, I instagrammed, I watched like 6 horror films one after another on Netflix (huge shout out for the free membership, I could not do lockdown without you..!) I did my emails, I had an amazing long bath (with all the bubbles and the temperature being something that could only be described as satan returning to hell) and I did proper skin care. Not just a face wipe here and some cleaner and toner there. It was magical.
Saturday came and we went for a walk. I live quite far from the city, so walking wise there’s loads of places here which we can keep a distance from everyone else – or so we thought. Groby Pool, Bradgate Park, Bosworth Water Park were all absolutely rammed – it was ridiculous – but I kind of understand it, I’d want to come out the city on the last nice day for a while for a walk if I could too.
So we ended up stopping for coffee, taking the car home and walking around where I live instead.
Luckily Will’s a student and as I said above, I am very unemployed, so we can go for a walk somewhere nice this week when everybody’s at work and he isn’t in online lectures.
Today I woke up early, went for a walk, went to the shop, we’ve not really seen each other much yet seen each other a lot at the same time, it’s all very odd.
He’s staying up tonight “borrowing” my WIFI, to watch American Football and play FIFA & War Zone with his boys, so I nipped out to get him “essentials”. I’m really excited to have a bath and do girl stuff without having to worry if I need to get him a drink or anything, is that normal?
It’s weird, I was absolutely dreading a second lockdown, but I guess it isn’t too bad with him here, I can’t say that I’m enjoying lockdown with him though because he’ll get big headed and take the mick out of me for a while.. and I’m just not really about that life.
I’m excited to start a new course tomorrow – and when I say excited, I can’t actually wait!
I also start my couch to 5k too!
This was a really positive blog post, but please don’t think that everything you read on the internet is true.
Although my post is true, it doesn’t mean I haven’t struggled already. It’s okay to struggle and it’s okay to have bad days.
We never signed up for this, just remember to take it one day at a time. You’ve got this.
Make a list of everything you’re going to do after lockdown – here’s the start of mine.
I’m going to see Jade, Aeysha, Beth, Nathan, Poppy, Tommy, Theo & Everyone else in Colchester and I don’t for a second care how cold it is, we will be going to the beach.
I’m going back to work.
I’m going to London with Will.
I’m going to visit the mountains.
I’m going to visit Caitlin in Manchester for the best girly weekend.
I’m going to roadtrip with my Flat W Girls.
There’s so much I’m going to do, but there’s also a lot I’m not going to do – I’m not going to try and please people constantly and always put their opinion before my own – I never used to do this, and I’ve kind of lost some of my sass, so that’s definitely about to come back!
and honestly, I’m going to say I’m never taking anything for granted again, but I probably will, because we’re all Human.
I’m going to spend the next week on my laptop, cooking too much food, spending time with Will & Smiffy and basically doing “me” stuff and I’m really excited.
This lockdown I really, don’t have a lot to do. So expect a lot more blog posts over the next couple of weeks. I know I say I’ll blog more but it’s really hard when you have what you feel, is nothing to blog about.
Stay Safe, Stay Home – Let’s see how the first full week of living with my goes,
I say help, but there’s no one else I’d rather isolate with.
(minus my niece and nephews, and some of my family, work and blood – them being here means i’d stay in lockdown forever!)
Wish me Luck!
