Week two of January 2021 is complete and it's been the longest week in a long time. I don't know why but it's just dragged so badly! I feel like I need time off work already. Let's hope it gets easier, don't think I am wishing the year away by the way. I'm not willing time to fly by, it's just been an unusually slow start to the year.
Lockdown is still in full swing, staying in had been made easier due to horrible wet, snowy cold weather. I am still going into the office daily for work and I am still getting out for my lunch time walks. Now Matt is working at home it does mean I have access to the car, I am trying not to drive unless it's raining as I do actually enjoy biking to work. It's a great way to add in a workout and it certainly wakes you up in the morning. This week also marks two weeks of morning yoga and I am loving it. It's such a great way to start the day and it's helping stretch those muscles which I am not great at doing. I have even started waking up just before my alarm at 05:30 and I seem to be sleeping better at night.
I Miss Doing Things
Something I have really missed over the course of the last year is going to shows and events, before lockdown we saw three comedians in Ipswich and saw Pink at Wembley. Last year we missed our holiday, Derren Brown and Cirque du Soleil. These have been rescheduled to this year so fingers crossed they will go ahead. On top of the rescheduled events I have also booked tickets to see Katherine Ryan and this week I booked tickets for Jon Richardson. There is so much to look forward to, I just hope that it can all go ahead.
We had to take Rudie (I have two rabbits, Rudie and Fudge) to the vets on Saturday for his vaccination and I asked the vet to have a look at Fudge's foot as she has a small sore on it which we have been cleaning with salt water. Turns out she has developed pododermatitis which is where the skin on their feet wears away (no she is not mistreated and it's very common). She now has antibiotics and painkillers. It's cost me a fair amount of money but it's completely worth it. I remember when I was younger my mum surprised me with a pet hamster, Sniff, she got a sore on her belly and mum took her to the vets and she had to pay £15 for some cream, to this day she likes to remind me that the 'bloody hamster only cost her £5'. The thing is, it doesn't matter if it's a hamster or a dog, all pets deserve to be treated with love and respect. So wish me luck trying to give a rabbit two syringes of medication a day for two weeks!
In happier news, we walked down to see the progress on the house and we have WINDOWS - hopefully now that we are fully weathertight the installation of the bathrooms, kitchens and flooring can commence. It's getting exciting now but I am getting very impatient. It doesn't help that there is still no solid completion date. I have however spent a lot of time looking into furniture and decoration ideas!
I also have something very exciting to share regarding the blog. I have started my Healthy Happy Periods series where I will be sharing what I am learning regarding my cycle and regulating my hormones. I am no expert and what I am sharing is all stuff I am learning for my own health benefits. I hope that by sharing my knowledge I can help other women with similar issues or just anyone who wants to know more about their bodies without having to do extensive reading or research. Make sure you subscribe so you don't miss any posts.

I hope you are all surviving this third lockdown and making sure you are taking care of yourself.
