Oh, hi there, stranger! How are you? What have you been up to?
I've been dog-wrangling. Being cosy. Cooking a lot. Re-learning to drive again after a ten-year hiatus (terrifying, tbh). Listening to Self Esteem. Also a bit of Stevie Nicks, who I never used to rate particularly highly but have lately been in the mood for. I went to Hastings.
Like everyone, obsessed with this song.
I wrote, like, half a book and abandoned it because it was really depressing and awful. Then I wrote another really weird but really fun book in a ridiculous record time and... we'll see.
I'm halfway through training to be a therapist now. I do a weekly shift on a women's domestic violence helpline, which has unexpectedly become a highlight of my week.
I've been doing a lot of YouTube workout videos and this is my favourite.
I read Sorrow + Bliss and, like everyone, am a bit obsessed. It's been a long long time since a book has made me cry that much.
My dog is lovely. I am over two years sober. I turned fucking forty. I just got my first post-lockdown haircut and it's very 70s. My friend tattooed me at her kitchen table and then I went on the trampoline with her kids and then we all went to the pub for chips.
