Good Morning everyone, happy Sunday. I hope you’ve all had a nice weekend?
This week’s blog post I’m going to talk about what I’ve been up to over the past week. I’m still incorporating a more simple approach to life and enjoying/appreciating the little things more. It’s definitely making me feel calmer and more grounded.
This past week has been quite busy (in a good way), I did have to book a days holiday though on Wednesday as I knew my fatigue was going to be bad. So, lets get into the week shall we?
After work I popped into town to visit my Aunt 🙂 it was spare of the moment trip and it’s always so lovely to spend time with her, we get on really well.
We went to my local cafe in town — I rarely go into the ‘high street coffee shops’ because I love discovering the simple ones instead. We had some delicious food and coffee of course and then went for a stroll around my town centre.
We always go to the Cathedral because it’s just so beautiful and peaceful, it always makes me feel calm.
We then had a look around the shops and then I walked back to the train station with her where she left to go home. It really was a wonderful afternoon.
Now, this had been arranged for a little while. Tonight I was going out for dinner with some friends, I knew it was going to be quite late so I booked the following day off work to allow myself to recover and rest. My boss is really understanding and usually, unless it’s not possible allows me to use my holiday for fatigue days.
So, on Tuesday. My friend picked me up from work and we went to her house before the meal to make travelling easier. We had a really relaxing afternoon and she’d even made up her spare room for me in case I needed to have a rest before we went out. I’m so lucky to have such wonderful friends.
We had a lovely dinner out and had a great catch up.
Today was all about REST. My fatigue was pretty bad and I pretty much spent the whole day in bed. I did have a relaxing bath, which made me feel good and I managed to sleep a bit.
When my fatigue is bad, the one thing that I know to do is rest. I find that if I push myself further with fatigue then it just makes me worse.
Another spontaneous afternoon/evening. After work today I met my sister in town, my mum and sister came over to mine for Halloween to watch scary films with me (we like horror films) and we always decorate my front room to get in the mood — it’s great fun.
When we were in town we went for a lunch at my local Pizza Express where we had an offer for free doughballs and two pizza’s for £10 which is so good. It was delicious.
We also had a look around the shops and I purchased a couple of little luxuries for myself and we went to our local department store to have a sneak peak at their Christmas section – I took a picture of my Christmas tree inspo.
After that, she took me home where I decorated the front room and then they both came over bringing food with them. We saw some ‘Trick or Treater’s’ and gave them some sweets, then turned the lights off and watched a scary film.
Friday or Fri-yay as I like to call it. After work today, I completely relaxed and rested at home. When George came home from work we watched a film together and just spent time together – I love that, I really love spending time with him.
Again today was a simple and relaxing day, because my week has been quite busy I wanted my weekend to be calm and simple.
Again spending time with George and Arthur too 🙂 We had a Chinese take away for dinner and watched The Hunger Games together.
And now it’s Sunday, which you know I love because I love planning for a fresh new week. I hope you have enjoyed this weeks blog post — also, are you enjoying the way I write my blogs now? Like Weekly Updates?

Lots of Love Always.
