Thankfully April is finally here and I am so happy about it! Does anyone else feel like it took way to long to come? I don't know if it's to do with all of the stuff that has been going on in my life recently or snow and dull weather we have been having but I really feel like March went on forever.
March really hasn't been the best month at all for me. It didn't start off to be the best month so I knew that it was going to be one hell of a long one. We received some worrying news from two close family members and for a little, while I felt like my world was twisted upside down and I had no clue on how to react to the situation. Thankfully, after numerous hospital appointments and tests my family members have all turned out alright for both of them thankfully, one of them is receiving treatment for a stomach ulcer and the other family member had his pacemaker checked after being rushed into hospital, but for a while there it was a scary time.
My mental health has really been so bad at the beginning of last month and I've taken a lot of self-care days which have really helped me. My family member suffering from a stomach ulcer was then rushed to the hospital due to breathing difficulties and has been kept in hospital for nearly three weeks, which made me into a massive wreck. I was up and down to the hospital every day which was why I took a blogging break during the middle of last month.
The middle of March wasn't the best at all really. Our saved money which we were planning to use on a day out ended up being spent on our car as our tax, insurance, and M.O.T were all due in the same week and all had to be paid so our day out that Phil and I were looking forward to didn't end up happening sadly. Hopefully, if we have enough money next month we can have a date day them instead.
Ending March couldn't have come quick enough, I feel like this month has dragged and gone on forever and I know that some big life changes early in April are going to shake my whole world but hopefully, that is going to be for the better. But all that news is going to be coming up in a blog post soon...
- GOALS FOR APRIL -
1. Cherish The Time With The People I Love. March really made me realise that I need to spend more time as it seems that I've neglected them all a little bit. Having close family emergencies have worried me and stuck me to think that I could have lost two of the closest people to me so I really don't want to not spend time with them anymore. It's not that I put them off or make excuses to see them in the past, but I never really put them first as much as I should have done and will now be doing. Please send all the time you can with your loved ones because you never know when something shocking can happen and rock your world.
2. Enjoy The Sunshine. I've moaned and moaned about the dull rainy weather for what feels like forever now so I'm so happy that the sunshine is here and the warmer weather is coming slowly. I intend to enjoy every single day the sun is shining and if that means a day out or even just sitting in my garden, I want to enjoy it to the full.
3. Start Watching Narcos. This is a show that I put on my Netflix watch list for way over a year now and I've never made time to watch it. My brother has watched every episode and always recommends it to me as I usually end up loving shows that he loves; Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead and Orange Is The New Black to name a few there. Do any of my readers watch it? I'd love to know what your thoughts are on the show.
How was your March? Do you have any exciting plans for April? What are your goals for this month? Leave me a comment and let me know. And lastly, HAPPY EASTER!
With love, Alisha Valerie. x
