Happy Friday everyone! How has this first full week of October treated everyone?
10 Things that Made Me Happy:
>>> Unlike most years, I actually did my UK taxes early instead of the month they were due. This isn’t really a happy thing, but it is some true adulting.
>>> In case you missed my tweet about it, this article by playwright Bonnie Greer on immigration had me weeping. It’s so brilliant, articulate, and moving. I encourage anyone with a Brexit hangover to have a read.
>>> I sent in my absentee ballot. Whomp, whomp. This election feels so much more fraught than ever before.
>>>I’ve arranged a much-awaited catch up with two of my old MA course flatmates. Bring on next week!
>>> All being well, we have secured a property. The landlord has tentatively accepted our rental offer and now we just need to go through all the paperwork. Hooray!
>>> I know it’s a very small achievement compared to some incredibly savvy social media accounts, but I surpassed 2000 twitter followers this week. And then whilst writing this post, I dipped below it by 2. Sod’s law, I suppose!
>>> A joyful thing came in the post this week! An invitation to our nephew’s second birthday party. He is literally the cutest.
>>> Sam received his provisional license this week because he’s starting driving lessons soon. I’m super excited for him (and also terrified – I’m a nervous driver myself.)
>>> Much to Sam’s chargrin, I turned the heating on last night. Our flat is a little icebox and I needed it. (We’ve made double-glazing a priority on the next place.)
I’ve been a bit unwell this week so I want this weekend to be one massive chill-off session. What are everyone else’s plans?
