nature love people flowers

Don’t you just love getting a lie in on a Saturday? Well, if you’re reading this at 7am I can promise you that I am still asleep on this first day of May 2021! Isn’t it strange how fast time flies when very little changes? Well, things have finally started to open up here in Northern Ireland. And the most exciting part of it being 1st May 2021 is that today I am getting my hair cut for the first time since 17th December 2020! Please be aware, this post contains affiliate links.

April 2021

As yet another month begins, I can’t help but think back to April 2020 and how unsure life was. If only things were more certain waking up today! Well, that’s maybe a little unfair. I mean, things are beginning to look up if you’re living in England, Scotland, or Wales! Tell me, Wales, what does it feel like having had your hair cut? But rather than being down about it all, let’s look back at March before looking ahead to April 2021. Please be aware, this post contains affiliate links.

Honestly….

Honestly, today hasn’t been the productive day I was hoping for. If you’ve been following my blog or Twitter recently, you may have noticed that I have resits coming up. These resits decide whether or not I get to continue university and become a teacher – the one thing I’ve thought about for years. And yet, here I am with absolutely no motivation to revise or be proactive about it. In fact, the only thing I can build up the energy to do today is eat, watch Netflix or blog. None of these are what I’d planned. I came back to the flat last night and the place needs a good clean.
