Good evening one and all! I write to you now from my own bed in my big bedroom with soft carpet under my feet. And yet why am I not happy?
After 16 days of my granny’s company we settled down tonight to catch up on Coronation Street in silence. Fish and chips for dinner, a brief nap in the middle of the afternoon, and we’re able to drink water straight from the tap. So why does it feel like something’s missing?
One possible reason – Baron. My delightful cocker spaniel is not yet home. Tomorrow morning, Dad and I will go pick him up so I’m excited for that.
Another option is I’m starting my diet in the morning. I know, I know. I said the exact same this time last year but this time I have you guys to back me up, right? By my 21st birthday (14 months away) I want to be happy when I look at myself in a mirror. Right now I’m not so sure I can say that I am. However breakfast won’t be a problem. We have the choice of porridge, porridge, dry toast or porridge. Considering I don’t like milk there may be a slight bias in my decisions.
Now I know what a lot of people will say – it’s not about what you’re eating, you need to exercise too. Which is very true! So I’m currently looking online for basic weight loss and/or toning exercise routines that I can do privately in my bedroom without being asked questions. Have any of you any suggestions or tips?
To finish off, all I will say is last night was a sob fest. I survived until one couple we met last year and spent time with again this year headed to bed. They got a little upset at saying goodbye which started me and of course I didn’t stop until I went to bed. José and Alvaro, I know you’ll never read this but I miss you both already and would happily drop everything to come back to you. Even if the family can’t go back, I’m going to ask and see if even one person from uni might come with me… Either that or I’ll happily go alone!! Update – I persuaded Jordanne to go with me! You can read about our adventures here.
So good night to you all. As usual, thank you so so much for reading and for keeping me motivated in my ramblings. Even if you don’t like them all, even just seeing that one person has liked my post or blog makes me feel like maybe someone out there cares. Take care and sweet dreams
Ps. I think I’ve decided on a turtle tattoo but not sure where. The explanation shall come in the morning!
