I got my numbers out of sync, thankfully only from mid July so didn't take too long to rectify.
I've not been feeling the best emotionally for the past few months. It's been a huge lifestyle change adapting back to life in the UK full time and with Peter retired, it's taken some adjusting as we've spent so long living apart, not just due to covid but for the past 4 years as we've juggled two lives in different countries.
I feel I'm in a better place now, calmer, relaxed and actually enjoying a slower speed of life. I've picked up the blogging again and it's just so nice having everything in one place and at hand. Although sadly the migraines have returned. A whole week affected by them.
I don't miss travelling at all, but we've just passed the two year mark since I last saw child 3 who lives in Australia and it's been 4 years since my husband saw him.
We've started to notice the food shortages (delivery drivers) but other than supermarkets the only other place we've been shopping has been in DIY shops and garden centres. Now we've got everything in one place our need to shop has reduced greatly, especially with clothes, toiletries and general household items.
We got pinged again, the same place in Gloucester as the last time a few weeks ago, I was asked a series of questions and told to go about my normal business, Peter was told to isolate for 5 days. We've both deleted the app now and LFT was negative.
