Weekly Diary: 20th – 26th September 2021, Getting back into a routine

Monday 20th September 2021

It was one of those days where my bed was super comfy and I didn’t want to get up, luckily I didn’t start work until 10am so didn’t have to rush out of bed. I had a bit of a chilled morning drinking my tea before getting ready for work.

The day went by quite quickly and I had booked the last 2 hours off of my shift to pack ready for going back to Cardiff tomorrow.

My Mum and Dad are getting a takeaway tonight so I am looking forward to that and chilling out before being sat in the car for a few hours tomorrow.

I was so glad I had packed the majority of my stuff last night as it took me ages to fall asleep last night which meant I slept a little later than I would usually.

Once I was awake I got up, packed my bed away and got dressed before packing the last few things I had out. We actually managed to leave on time and the journey was pretty plain sailing! We stopped quite early on as my Mum wanted a sausge roll from Greggs but after that little pit stop the journey went by really quickly.

I got back to Cardiff at about 2pm, my Dad unloaded the car as I ran everything back into the house After I said goodbye to my parents I put everything in my room before walking down to Aldi to get some food so that I can kickstart my healthy eating again as I have well and truly fallen off of the wagon over the last few weeks.

I put my shopping away before starting to unpack my stuff in my room. I stopped half way through unpacking to make some dinner and watch the most recent episode of Vigil. I still have a bit of sorting out to do but I made a decent amount of progress with it and I need to get some of my stuff sorted out properly.

I am definitely looking forward to sleeping in a proper bed tonight although it will be weird to not have Barney laying across the end of my bed!

I struggled to get to sleep a little last night and kept waking up which meant I stayed in bed longer than I planned to this morning. Although it wasn’t such a big issue as I was working the late shift today so I didn’t need to be up early.

I made myself some breakfast and drank a cups of tea before getting dressed and heading out for a walk. Once I got back I cooked my dinner so I only had to cook the spaghetti during my lunch break meaning I got more time to chill out. I also used my lunch break to start sorting out the computer my brother gave me and downloading and installing the things I want on it. I also managed to book all of my online tutorials for my next module which is another job ticked off of my to do list.

I am debating getting rid of my laptop now and moving over to the desktop PC as I have my tablet which I can use for most things when I am away from my house. It is a bit of an internal debate that I can’t quite decide what the right decision is.

The day has gone by quite quickly and am looking forward to crashing tonight in front of some catch up TV!

I think I stayed in bed the longest I have done in a very long time this morning. It was a bit miserable outside so I didn’t go for a walk this morning but I had my breakfast before jumping in the shower. Once I was dressed I made sweet and sour chicken for my dinner and enough that could be frozen for a few days.

I then watched some telly before starting work. It has been busy which is kind of normal for this time of year. However during my breaks I have managed to get a few things ticked off of my to do list which has been good! I also went for a walk to the shop during my lunch to get a little bit of fresh air.

Once I finish work I am going to watch the last episode of Manhunt before crashing and I hope I will be awake a little earlier tomorrow to make the most of my morning before work…. we will see what happens!

Forgot to journal

Saturday 25th September 2021

I decided yesterday that I needed to get a grip on my routine again as I wasn’t getting very much done with my time and I was watching time disappear.

I had an unintentional lay in as I slept through my alarm. However once I was awake I decided to get up and have my breakfast. After that was done I got myself dressed and decided to walk to Home Bargains to have a look.

I have been wanting to get my desk area reorganised ready for my next OU module to start. In Home Bargains I managed to find two noticeboards which are split, with half being a whiteboard and the other half being a pin board. I think the combination will allow me to keep track of several different things. I also got some whiteboard pens and found some cute Christmas cards.

I also had a wonder around Lidl however I didn’t really buy anything in there apart from some BBQ ribs for my dinner.

Once I walked back home I started reorganising my desk area and putting my noticeboards on the wall. I have also reverted back to using one monitor as I found I got very distracted having multiple different screens to work with. If I need an additional screen for anything I can always use my tablet if needed.

I still need to work out a way to make my flags look a little better above my desk but I am sure I will work that out eventually.

My day was spent watching the end of Sex Education and some stuff on YouTube before crashing.

I have been having a lot of flashbacks recently which has made sleeping exhausting, if that even makes sense.

TODAY HAS BEEN SO PRODUCTIVE

I woke up and went straight out for a walk before having my breakfast.

I have finally tidied the end and side of my bed which has been on my to do list for a while. I also managed to sort my cupboard out whilst catching up with New Amsterdam.

Bev made a really good roast dinner which I ate whilst watching Cheat on ITV player. I carried on watching this in the background whilst making a head start on my new OU module for my degree.

I had a nice hot shower whilst I had a break from studying and organising things.

After my shower I carried on with a bit of studying and also organising my calendar for next week to make sure I get enough hours in with studying around work.

This evening I am going to do a bit of reading, watch the finale of Vigil and try to adjust my body clock so I stay awake until 11pm ready for working lates next week.
