Hooray for lovely normal, totally unexciting days. It’s been so nice to just get on with everyday bits and bobs and feel like I’m achieving something whilst still getting to catch up with friends and not feel entirely overwhelmed.

I’ve got my routine back! I’ve had some time to myself. I’ve walked, I’ve cleaned and I’ve worked. It’s all back to normal. It’s actually been really lovely and I’m feeling more like I can cope again.
