Awake at 7.15 this morning, up, coffee and shower, hair DRIED with a HAIR DRYER… an actual hairdryer for the first time in a very long time… you’d think I was making an effort eh?!
Craig has a job in Grangemouth today and Jac lives 10-15 mins away so I thought I’d go up with him so we could catch up.
We put the world to rights in our wee hour and a half. She’s lost 38lbs in the last year with Team RH Fitness and is exercising 6 times a week and walking 15k a day but is looking amazing as a result. I knew how much she’d lost since I last saw her and was worried she would look too thin but she didn’t at all…. she looked healthy and happy and proud of herself. Girl done awfy well!!!! One day I will get there when I put the pizza down….. 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤣 (I can hear her saying, “you can still eat pizza, I eat pizza, you just need to track it….” 😆😘 I just think that it should really be pizza in moderation!)
I told her that driving past my old work in Falkirk felt really strange to me. Like a huge trip down memory lane… I don’t work there anymore, it goes on without me, they’re successful without me, I walked away from a great salary and a great company that doesn’t need me anymore. Really hard to shake that feeling. That geographic area will always be about that job for me. We talked about how I need to think that I went through all of this because it wasn’t serving me anymore and that actually my life is much better without it. I have orchestrated a new life for myself by no longer accepting the stress it was putting me under…. I know that but it’s just that nagging fear of what once was. I have to admit I wan way happier now than I ever was any day at work. Wow, that’s even a revelation to me.
So we talked the hind legs off a donkey and then had to get back to the Asda car park to meet Craig.
Popped next door to wish Louise a happy 14th and give her a present. She has 2 friends round who’s parents dropped them off for a socially distanced “party”. She’ll not forget this birthday in a hurry.
Claire came into the garden with her own cuppa and we sat like civilised human beings and hat a socially distanced chat on the ground rather than up a ladder! Check us… forgot to take pics tho!
I’m not even gonna look up the Coronavirus stats tonight. I’ve had the loveliest day and I can’t wait to meet up with mum and dad and other people that I haven’t seen for so long. It’s a strange world we live in now. As a hugger I don’t know what to do now when I see people as the urge to hug is very strong!
Leads me to a quick couple of asides…. called mum and dad today to tell them about my meet up with Jac and mum said she is sad that dad is the only person she can hug now.. dad quietly mumbles so is he! They make me laugh! We have decided that Craig is to start proof reading these before I put them out as I’ve had a few typos in the past…. Craig changes to Raif at times…. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️ he might start this spellchecker tomorrow! His fault if there are any typos tonight 😆😘
