Manageable March


I started this month feeling overwhelmed and out of control, both emotionally and physically (playing the catch-up game with my workload). As I have said, I have had a lot going in my life in the past couple of months. While the majority of it has left a very positive influence in my life, there are some areas of it where negativity continues to tingle. I have told myself I will focus on the sunny side of it, work around this to normalise it as much as possible. The good news is that I have succeeded; I have managed to focus my shift back to work, and it has been working so far. However, there are occasions when my mind starts drifting away into the other land. But happy to say, I have been pretty productive this month, managed to get through ethics applications, two paper revisions (almost) and a few other things.

In other news, I have finally started working on our wedding day blog. It took me a while to start because I wanted to wait until my ‘mental load’ reduced a little. We haven’t received the pictures from our pre-wedding function and reception yet, so I am going to blog it in parts and work on the rest when they become available.

Lastly, I have some exciting news to share about something that’s coming up in April (will write about this next month). I have also been busy with travel planning. I have at least two upcoming trips this year. I’m not very organised with planning big trips, so I’m trying to work on this early.

I have recently started cooking again. My mum took off this month, so I’m back to being in charge. It was so nice to have her around, she has provided me with a tremendous amount of support in the last few of months, and I’m so thankful for her presence. Here are all my March eats :)
