November Grab Bag

Yesterday I talked about a friend who had got themselves into a really shitty situation.

Today I was going to write about some shitty situations that come about regardless of how much we try and avoid them but honestly, I thought of the topic but didn’t have any content for it, so I’m going to put that one on the back burner I think.


It’s been a rollercoaster of a week or two really. I feel like I may have sounded like I was feeling crappier than I actually felt in a couple of blog posts recently and while it’s true it’s been a bit up and down, I’ve not been anywhere close to as low as I’ve felt at many other points this year.

It’s more a case of letting a bit of air out of the balloon as opposed to popping it or even fully deflating it. It honestly is probably a healthy release and allows for it to be refilled with good fun stuff easier than trying to cram more in.

Wow, I really can’t make an analogy without going one step further with it can I?


Being back at work this week has been interesting, it’s definitely getting to that part of the year where everything is busier, but I do what I always do with my job and just get on with it.

I’ve missed my routine of working out when I get up, but I’m also enjoying doing it when I get home too.

It’s funny, there are aspects of my exercise that come easily to me one week and another time are a real struggle. I guess that’s part of it though, going with a video game comparison, when it’s becoming a struggle it’s like I’m grinding out the last bits I need before levelling you that particular attribute and then it eases off again as I start the process over for the next level.


This one turned into a bit of a mixed bag of all sorts. Not had a post like that in a little while though. I hope you’re all doing okay. If not, that’s okay too. It’s okay to not be okay. Just keep moving forward.
