I’ve been struggling with anxiety a lot (a global pandemic decidedly did not help). So, I’ve decided to do a post a week about things that I am grateful for or have found joy in.
I am really looking forward to getting into the habit of celebrating things that are happy – whether big or small.
John is my partner and is genuinely so kind and supportive. I really enjoy all of the time we spend together. He’s quick to make me laugh and makes me feel safer than I ever have before.
Avoiding getting too soppy, I don’t know where I would be without him. I’m so grateful to have him in my life.
And his guitar face is second to none!
Attended a Friend’s Wedding
Moving to a new country is a big decision and can be very isolating. I have found that it can be a bit difficult to make friends in England, but after you get over that initial barrier, English people are very friendly.
I have a few close friends here, and one of them got married last weekend.
They had a wonderful ceremony and I was honoured to be able to celebrate with them.
As a Canadian, I thought I would always be able to deal with the cold. I wouldn’t have considered the temperature to be particularly cold until it hit negative numbers.
After living in the UK for six years, however, I cannot handle being cold and anything under 10C fills me with trepidation.
For Christmas a couple of years ago, John got me an Oodie.
I love it and would live in it if I could! As it goes further into autumn and soon into winter, I practically will be.
It’s essentially an oversized, cosy sweater with a massive pocket (which can fit books and snacks, so that’s me sorted).
And it’s got corgis on it, soooo…
