I was NOT ready to wake up this morning – It took me a long while before I felt with it.
After taking my tablets and having my cups of tea I got dressed before taking Boris for a walk.
When I got back I had some jam on toast before Marysia dropped me off at the station to go into work.
I popped into Tesco to grab some Lucozade and a sandwich for lunch before seeing the IT team.
The day went by relatively quickly although it did feel weird being in the office, especially with it being so empty. It was pretty cold when I left but I didn’t have too long to wait before I got on the train.
I am looking forward to getting cosy and comfy!

I put up a bit of a fight this morning as I didn’t want to get up. I had made myself way too comfy in bed. Marysia made me a cups of tea whilst I took my tablets. Once I had finished drinking my tea I got dressed and ready to take Boris out for his walk.
We had a bit of a slow walk to the park and back with a lot of stops for Boris to sniff every blade of grass. I also spoke to my Mum on the phone whilst we wondered around.
When we got back I emptied the bins, changed the bedding and swapped the mop head before preparing the lasagne ready for dinner later.
I then had a little bit of time before I started work so spent some time preparing my journal ready for the month – I still have a little bit to do but got a big chunk of it done. I then spent a little while playing Spyro on my Switch.
Work was ok today and I didn’t finish my shift stressed our which is always a good sign. I have 3 days off and I want to try and make the most of them. Although I will probably end up playing Spyro a lot! I also really need to get some blog posts written and make some progress with reading my book.

I was very groggy this morning – I wish I could go back to waking up early and feeling with it in the mornings!
After my cups of tea and a bacon sandwich I decided to have a shower and wash my hair to try and wake myself up.
After my shower I took Boris for a walk – it wasn’t as cold as I was expecting it to be!
The rest of the day was spent playing Spyro on my Switch, I am getting really close to completing it!
I also spent some time this afternoon starting a painting by numbers off.
I took Boris out for another walk around the community garden and Boris made a friend on the way back.
I REALLY wanted a snack earlier so went to the shop & got a KitKat. Marysia asked me to get some pickles and tomatoes however there wasn’t any pickles and tomatoes had fluff growing out of them. So we ended up going to Tesco later on to get them.
After dinner we watched a film called Underwater on Disney it was a little bit odd but had a pretty good storyline.
I am hoping to fall asleep a bit earlier tonight and not wake up so many times.
Thursday 3rd February 2022
I had really good intentions of being productive and getting things done today. I even felt surprisingly awake even after waking up at midnight feeling as though it should be the morning.
I spent a little while after taking Boris out trying to organise my calendar and scheduling the things I need to get done which didn’t get very far before I started procrastinating by cleaning the flat.
I did manage to get the table drawn up in my notebook for recording my blog stats so I now have a physical and digital copy.
I am also really close to completing the second Spyro game – I have ended up completing the series backwards and I payed Year of the Dragon when I was younger so wanted to start with that for nostalgia sake.
I finished the series on BBC Iplayer I started yesterday whilst doing some more of my painting. I also watched the Tinder Swindler on Netflix. I finished watching that with Marysia whilst we ate dinner.
Our evening was spent watching Spencer – I feel kind of on the fence about it at the moment.
I’m heading back to Cardiff tomorrow and I need to pack all my stuff up. I have a lot to so when I get home so I know it will end up being a busy last day off before working the weekend.
Friday 4th February 2022
After Marysia made me a cups of tea this morning I made us some breakfast which turned into ‘Stacey’s Kitchen Nightmares’. Whilst Marysia tidied up from breakfast I started gathering my stuff up and took Boris for a quick walk.
Once I got back I packed the rest of my stuff up and Marysia took me to the station. My stomach started hurting quite badly which is the first time in a while it had been like it and wasn’t ideal it was happening on the train back. Thankfully my tablets worked and it started to calm down by the time I got to Cardiff.
Once I got home I dropped my stuff off and then headed back out to Aldi to get a few bits for dinner during the week.
When I got back I spent a while video calling my Mum before unpacking all of my stuff. It literally took me hours! It probably didn’t help that I decided to rearrange my desk.
I spent the rest of the afternoon sorting out bits and pieces before making dinner and watching some YouTube.
After dinner I had a nice hot shower and sorted out my clothes for tomorrow.
I plan to spend the rest of the evening reading my book before heading to bed. I am hoping to be up relatively early tomorrow – fingers crossed.
Saturday 5th February 2022
I slept in later than I was intending to although it was nice not to wake up to my alarm as I had turned it off during the night.
I made last minute decision as I was getting dressed to go for a walk which I really happy I decided to do as it was really nice to get out in the fresh air.
When I got back from my walk I made some tea and breakfast before faffing about on my laptop (I had things I should have been doing but ended up scrolling through twitter). I also rang my Mum and Dad for a catch up.
I watched some TV and doing a few bits and pieces before work.
The first part of my shift went really fast. On my break my knee and hip locked going down the stairs which caused me to gall down them. I am now a little bit sore.
I was hoping to feel a bit more awake after work in order to do some work on my blog but I am so tired and all I want to do is get into bed and go to sleep.
I have decided to get comfy and read my book. I have decided as it is Sunday tomorrow I am not going to set and alarm as I know I will be out of bed well in time for my shift at 1pm.
Sunday 6th February 2022
I slept in WAY longer than I thought I would but my body definitely needed it. Starting tomorrow I am going to make an effort to set and alarm and get up in order to make the most of my mornings. Which should also help me to sleep a little bit better during the night as for some reason I keep waking up between midnight and 2am and struggle to fall back to sleep.
As I woke up so much later I didn’t have as much time before work as I would normally plan to so I got dressed, made some breakfast and a cups of tea before setting up for work.
My stomach has been sore this evening and I am hoping my tablets will help it settle down. I have also had a hot shower which usually helps it.
They day feels as though it has dragged a little bit and I feel really wide awake this evening so am hoping to start feeling sleepy soon.
The plan is to set my alarm and a timer on my light to help get me up in the morning so I can get on and get things done!
