Reasons to be Cheerful - Beach Walks, Relaxation and Cocktails!

Another week in lockdown is down, time really does seem to be going fast and I am loving that things have been relaxed a bit and we can get out as a family and take some walks.

Life is still generally really good and I am feeling super thankful. We should have been away on holiday in Devon right now, which would have been amazing with this great weather, but we're doing OK here at home too. 

If I could have one wish now, it would be that the girls would knuckle down and do their schoolwork better, but I can't have everything I suppose!

Here are just a few of the things I have been really thankful for in the last couple of weeks.

  • Having my pre-op for my next TCRE operation, I'm just waiting for a date for the actual operation now
  • Some good blogging work coming in and getting that all completed
  • My SEISS grant being paid from the Government
  • Chilled time out in the courtyard outside my home, enjoying a nice cool drink in the evening, reading, chilling and often having the cat keep me company. 

  • Taking a family walk along Eastbourne prom in the evening and watching the sun go down.

  • Watching many amazing sunsets, here at home.

  • Another evening beach walk, this time along Bexhill seafront with just my hubby.

  • Taking part in an online blogger event with Moonpig to learn about their app. We made amazing cocktails and arranged flowers, it was ace. 

  • Going out Sunday afternoon for a walk with my hubby. We explored the wider parkland of Sheffield Park, a local National Trust site. It was truly lovely.

There we go, all is good! I suspect we'll head out for a nice walk somewhere this weekend too. We just need to be smart planning to go somewhere where we think there won't be too many people, so we can keep distancing.

I hope you're all keeping well and entertained! Mich x
