The Weekend Blog | Spring is here!
22nd April 2018
After what felt like the longest winter I’ve ever experienced, I was happy to see the sun this week.
It’s been so warm outside that I’ve been able to take my laptop outside and work from my garden. This is what working for yourself is all about! Plus I’m getting that all important Vitamin D which always seems to help lift my mood.
I actually think I’m more productive working from the garden. I feel like there’s less distractions. Well, apart from the squirrels performing acrobatics in my trees…
This week on a whole has been great. I’ve had a few enquiries from potential new clients, I started swimming again after the Easter holidays (I don’t enjoy it when the pool is full of kids!) and I had a really great counselling session. If you’ve read my last blog post then you’ll know how much counselling is helping me, and how I’m feeling a lot better in myself because of it.
On Friday night, we ordered pizza and sat in the garden to eat it, with a glass of sangria to wash it down. I can’t tell you how happy I felt.
Yesterday we decided to tackle the garden and our overgrown shrubs that were taking up half the road outside our house. It was a big job, and it was hard work. My thighs are aching today after constantly bending down to pick up all the leaves and branches! But now it’s done, it will be a lot easier to maintain this summer, and I’m sure my neighbours will appreciate getting their road back again!
I know I’ve been a bit quiet on this blog recently, but if you follow me on social media you may have seen that I’ve been investing the majority of my time into my little business venture. Even though it’s been like 4 months since I left my full-time job I’m still getting use to working for myself and managing my time. I don’t think I’ve got my hear around this whole work-life balance yet!
But as I start to find more of a balance, I hope to get back into writing more personal posts, even if they’re just short and sweet like this one.
I hope you’ve had a great week and weekend!
