First entry :woo: :woo:

I've had a very quiet and peaceful weekend, not done as much as I intended but I feel like I've had a proper break which is good Started watching a few TV programmes (Peaky Blinders and some reality TV aha) and just been enjoying myself, which sometimes my depression makes it hard for me to do. I am prioritising health/happiness right now :heart:

I've got my first Princes Trust meeting with my mentor on Thursday so have something to complete and send over before then, but I've genuinely enjoyed my down time and will do that tomorrow/Tuesday. However, I am also going to do a home workout before going to sleep tonight haha :innocent:

My anxiety means I panic over sometimes spending even a small amount even tho I've got a decent amount in savings, I'm not sure why I am trying to get out of that about as else I can literally panic over buying a chocolate from the shops or something. I was really in need of a lip balm, so have treated myself to this from eBay :love: I am going for a really natural look this spring, legit just skincare and this tinted colour. My ex used to go on about Instagram girls who wore a ton of makeup and it would make me so insecure, not sure if I'm choosing the opposite on purpose but w/e :P

Image

Also got myself a green dress off eBay, it was literally £4 including postage and is soooo cute It's like this just a lighter colour

Image

Had enough R & R which is nice now on to the week ahead :headbang: I am planning on doing a springtime picnic on Tuesday as the weather is looking up, should be good I am mixing working w playing hard, I am putting a lot of pressure on myself to do the Princes' Trust course well lol.

It's EASTER weekend! :bunny: Going to get out a lot this weekend.. also find an Easter egg if I can, to replace the one I ate already :hmmm: hope everyone has a good one!

I feel so much more confident now, had my first meeting with my Princes Trust mentor and though she's pretty strict I could tell even she was impressed with the work I've done (w/o bragging :lol: ) I can also feel that I'm going to do well on my course, and got some new ideas from her yesterday. So that's something I'm v positive about!

I have two job interviews next week (I had to leave a job last month because it was just too far to commute to, up to 2 hrs one way and I couldn't get there for the earlies). Which is also giving me confidence though I don't even know if I'd take either if they were offered to me.

I really need to fix my sleep, I have PMS right now and it is all over the place, and I try to nap in the daytime but just can't :K That is the one thing I am gonna focus on first so an early night tonight after working out

My anxiety has actually been pretty good lately with feeling a lot more confident from my Princes Trust course. The one bad thing was yesterday when I was walking down the street and some Council tradesmen started making lewd remarks, wtf :nope: It was v triggering as I also confronted them and got an earful, and I am a sexual assault survivor so situations like that are even worse. Going to complain after Easter as it's unacceptable tbh!

I am also finding it hard to get my ex off my mind, especially since we didn't get closure but just kind of agreed to take a break, and then talk again during summer.. but tbh I know deep down he's not the one and also that I cant grow if I stay in love with him. Which sucks cuz he liked me for me in lots of ways no dude has :cry: but I just KNOW, it hurts to let go tho.

Most of my spring wardrobe is now together, received my green dress which was lovely :love: I am getting a black one like this but it's cheapy off eBay as I can't afford to buy new rn :ahee:

Good luck on both your job interviews and I hope you got some rest :hugs:
I’m so sorry that happened to you - those men are absolutely disgusting. It’s totally unacceptable- sending loads of digital hugs :jumphug:

Woahh that’s also a lovely dress!

I'm glad your anxiety is improving, but I'm sorry about that incident I hope that in time, no one will have to go through the casual sexism / attacks that go completely unheard or disbelieved. It's so frustrating and I hope they take action when you complain! :yep:

And I can tell you know the getting over someone phase is a process...I know you can do this :hugs:

I haven't planned anything, but I read a lot of the day and just relaxed. I haven't really been out but then it's too cold for me!

Happy Easter to you too! :heart:
Thank you so much :jumphug: Had the first one earlier today, went really well. I've been busy but also caught up on sleep and naps

I'm going to call the Council up tomorrow and complain :yep: Thank you. It's awful but I'm sure they'll sort it :hugs: :hugs:

Thanks, I'm excited for it to arrive - barely worn dresses since last summer but I want to feel girly again :love:

You're very welcome

Omg sounds amazing! The weather's been so nice lately (and then started snowing here today haha). I haven't been on a bike ride in age, kind of want to now :P Glad you had such a great time!

We're now in the post Easter period :heart: and on the run up to summer :eek:

Thanks, yep it's improving generally but stuff like that is always a setback I was also out shopping yesterday and everyone suddenly started crowding me in the reductions section out of nowhere - started panicking again! That said I'm gonna call the Council up tomorrow and thank you, I'm going to make sure they take it seriously :yep:

I really appreciate that, thank you :hugs: :heart: He did have some obvious red flags tbh, it's for the best. I'm going to unfollow him on Insta etc. too and just move forwards.

That sounds nice! I need to get back into reading again We had a sunny Easter weekend here, and then it was snowing earlier today - the weather's so unpredictable in April! :P
