Louise Chatters : April

Hello my sweeeets. I have been MIA this month on the blog and social media and I have no idea what’s wrong with me. I have no inspiration and literally nothing to write about. So, I just haven’t. Not written a thing. But by the middle of the month, I started to work on my piece for Beautiful Minds and it made me want to write so much again!

First things first, (I’m the realist), this month has gone so so quickly. It was Easter, then  my birthday on the 17th and Michael’s on the 27th so yay to celebrations!

I had a great time celebrating Easter with a lovely meal out with Michael’s family and family friends. Lots of food and wine was consumed and it was great spending time with everybody.

I spent a lot of time with friends this month! I got to see Katie and we went for cake like we  used to always do! (Hi Katie, miss you.)

I went for some drinks with friends for my birthday and it was great getting different groups of people together.  I had so much fun! I got so many lovely gifts of people and I am so so grateful!

Far too much alcohol was consumed this month but it was a great month so that seems okay. I have definitely put on weight this month which sucks but tomorrow is a new day right?

I took a week off work to head home and visit my family and friends and it was lovely! I had such a relaxing week and got some much needed chill time and catch ups with my friend. I even managed to go out on two runs which I was very impressed with. I was on holiday after all.

Michael and I took a spontaneous trip to New Lanark and it was such a lovely town! I didn’t even know it existed!  New Lanark Visitor Centre is a former 18th century cotton spinning mill village located on the banks of the Falls of Clyde. It was so cool seeing original mill buildings and houses in the town.

 

Clearly, my mental health hasn’t been tremendous this month as I still feel pretty numb and empty. But I had two great therapy sessions this month which put a lot of my feelings over the past years into perspective. I’m starting to build a good relationship with my psychiatrist which is fabbby. I haven’t been as active on social media as I felt like I haven’t had anything to say!

The most exciting part of this month was that Michael and I booked our summer holiday to Italy! We are going to explore Milan, Florence, Bolognia and Lake Garda in June and I am so so excited. I have never visited Italy before so it will be such a great experience!

So that’s a lil catch up for me, what have you been up to this month?

Much love,
