September Playlist & Updates!

Hey guys!

Long time no see, right? I'm trying to get back into blogging, and though this might take a while, I'm going to try at least one to two posts a week for now. Hope you're all doing okay in these crazy times we're living in this 2020 year! What a year it has been. 

I had three months off work as I was NHS shielding, and though it was nice to be away from the craziness for that long, the novelty of that wore off after the first month, and then it was just trying to keep into a routine where possible, so I wouldn't go insane! We had a lot of BBQ's, played poker a lot, watched a hell of a lot of TV and movies, ate far too much food, and watched copious amounts of Disney videos and vlogs to keep us happy - as we were due to go back in 2021, but we've now changed that to 2022, as we're still concerned about the virus for next year. 

I've been back at work for three months now, and it kinda looks like we are nearing a second wave and second lockdown, but will see what happens. I'm in a supermarket, and it has been terrifying, absurd, and overwhelming. Many tears have been spilled since I went back on June 22nd. Just getting up each day and doing my best! Thankfully, a large handful of the public I've dealt with have been incredibly understanding and kind to myself and my colleagues, but there's a small amount that have been literal Karens

Things I have learnt during lockdown:
  • How to dutch-braid my hair
  • How to make homemade coleslaw
  • Purging my bedroom is great
  • I put on 11lbs in lockdown - I've finally lost them all now!
  • Social media friends are a godsend
  • Instagram is my fave social media platform right now
  • Planning in my EC products kept me sane for 3 months
  • I really, really, love my family!
  • I missed my friends an awful lot
  • I missed my work friends a lot
  • Going to the pharmacy twice to get my medication was scary as heck
  • Hamilton is now my favourite musical
  • Anxiety purchasing is a real thing

I woke up this morning - a rare Sunday off work kinda day - and decided let's do an update blog post, and share some music I'm loving at the moment. Be warned, most of it is Hamilton music! So here it is, my latest playlist for the year!

How are you all holding up around the country/world with everything going on? Let me know! Hope you have a great day and keep safe :)

    1. Glad you liked it! Happy to be back and will try and keep it up :) X

  2. Aww Tania, I hope you are doing ok at work now and have gotten into some form of routine with everything going on. That must have been really hard at the beginning when all the shops were crazy. How are you doing now? That's good that you've been doing lots during quarantine. We've been trying to stay as productive as possible too! :) Have you watched Julie and the Phantoms? I feel that you will love the soundtrack and must listen to it! I've seen the show three times in two weeks and can't stop listening to the soundtrack! :) Lucy xx

    1. Work is having it's ups and downs, but that seems to be standard with everything during this pandemic! Just hoping the festive season isn't too bad... Otherwise, doing a lot better now, thank you.
      I really need to watch JATP, I keep seeing it everywhere and it looks amazing! Hope you're both keeping well :) xx
