Lifenotes #6: January 2021

The one with all the snow.

ยท 2 min read โฑ๏ธ

Hey pals! I clearly cannot be trusted to write every week, so I'm turning my weeknotes into monthly reviews. Here are the headlines for January:

๐Ÿ˜„ Good stuff

  • We got some snow here in Notts. It was a nice little shake up to the lockdown routine.
  • I got into hand embroidery and it's great fun!
  • Had a call with the mental health nurse at my GP surgery, and "aced" the ADHD triage questionnaire, so I'm being referred for a proper assessment.
  • Got some good speakers for my desk, so the vibes have gone ๐Ÿ“ˆ ๐Ÿ“ˆ ๐Ÿ“ˆ

โ˜น๏ธ Bad stuff

  • Our house buying process is dragging on, the bank is being nitpicky about documents, and everything takes an age.
  • My setup has been really annoying lately. I managed to get the monitor replaced, but I'm still having some issues, so now to figure out if it's the cables or the macs.
  • My routine hasn't been great, which in turn makes me feel not great.

๐Ÿ“ธ Pics

A collage of pictures: a portrait of Thom in the snowy park with his hood up; a selfie from when I was covered in snow in the park; a picture of our local park, all white except for the colourful row of houses behind it; the snow person we built and their snow dog; my new desk speakers, teal coloured and cute; and lastly my first finished embroidery hoop, a sampler with lots of different sections to practice each different stitch.
