Monthly Musings

by - June 01, 2020

The month's March to May have been unusual, to say the least. I feel as though the months have blurred into one and the days have become one long expanse of time. I thought this post would be quite nice to look back on once this crazy time is over and I'd love to know how your months have been during lockdown!




What I've Been Thinking:
Mainly, I've been thinking about how badly I want to go further afield than a walk around my local village. As much as I appreciate where I live and being able to go outside I am very much missing going anywhere other than a field. As I write this post, it's been 10 weeks since I last saw my boyfriend and I am desperate to hop on a train and see him again!

What I've Been Doing:
I've been trying to find anything and everything to do during lockdown. I definitely suffer from not being able to switch off at times or I find myself getting incredibly bored or snappy without anything to do. I've been baking a bit more (unsuccessfully), updated my scrapbook, attempting exercising more, started a paint by numbers and a colouring book, tried to get more serious about blogging, painted my bedroom, read a lot of books and tried to learn German. Although it seems like an incredibly busy schedule I've definitely had time to feel bored and wonder what to do.

What I've Been Watching + Reading:
If you're interested in how else I've been occupying myself then check out my previous posts for more info on my top recommendations for TV and books!

What I've Been Listening To:
Kylie Minogue! I go through such phases with Kylie and at the moment, I am in fully-fledged fan mode! If you're feeling in need of a lift then Kylie's Greatest Hits will have you feeling top again. I've also been listening to The 1975's single If You're Too Shy which I'm a big fan of again. Lastly, I've been flitting between the Rocketman soundtrack and Harry Styles' album (oddly enough for me) too which I recommend.


How have you been finding lockdown and what have you been up to in recent months?

  5. It's so hard to be away from a boyfriend, I am in the same situation. At first, I remember I felt a horrible twitch in my stomach at looking at my neighbors taking no precautions, and the people in the streets. Because of them this would get longer! But now I'm just focusing on praying and trusting God. I hope you get to see your bf soon :)

  6. I couldn't imagine how difficult it must be not seeing your boyfriend for 10 weeks, we are fortunate enough to be isolating together. I love the idea of painting by numbers!

  7. I agree, months do seem to have blurred into one! I've been blogging more, catching up on TV, I've started reading again and even doing some crafts.

  8. Sounds like you have had a busy month! I too have been scrapbooking; I went to Florida last year so am reminiscing about travelling! I think the months are going by so fast and before we know it, it'll be 2021...not sure I am sad about that though! I don't even know what day it is at the moment!

  15. It's amazing what you find to do! I've planted a veggie patch! Never thought I'd do that in a million years

  16. I've been trying to learn a language too, but it's French for me. :)

  17. Oh my god how funny- I have recently been listening to Dannii Minogue (she made a cover of a song I like). I hope you get to see your boyfriend soon- nothing beats physical interaction. Where I live (Sydney, Australia), we can travel everywhere around the state but interstate travelling is still out of bounds.

  18. I can so relate with trying to find more things to do nowadays.. it seems we've tried almost everything! I tried to be productive as well even after my shift of working from home, but I ended up feeling even more tired than usual.. I guess I'm reminded it's good to have time to do nothing as well, and be perfectly fine with it :") oooh I love The 1975. I've seen them perform live twice when they came here in my area <3 <3 thanks for sharing with us your musings of the month!
