What I got for my Birthday

Good morning all, how are we all doing today? I have changed my blog theme once again and decided to go back to what I started with.

I’ve tried a few themes but this one makes me the happiest. I apologise for keeping on changing things, but I am an Aquarius after all. It’s part of my nature and I feel this theme is the easiest to navigate so I hope you all agree. Let me know in the comments below…

I’ve also updated my blogging schedule and now blog on Tuesday’s, Friday’s and Sunday’s, although Sunday’s blog post was a day late because it was my birthday and I’m not sure if I mentioned it but I’m an Aquarius ha! We’re kind of irrational… so apologies.

Anyway, I am feeling re charged and like myself again. I got myself a little confused in December, looking back at it now I realise the pandemic was definitely clouding my vision. It was like being engulfed in a cloud of fog and I couldn’t see a way out. I guess it really effected me, and so many others…

I thought turning thirty last year was bad enough! Little did I know my selfish outlook on life was about to have an almighty turn around and I was going to be changing my whole out look on reality.

Scary stuff but at least there is some hope on the horizon. I’m way, way down on the vaccine list but that also means I’m not vulnerable so, every cloud has a silver lining I guess.

My daughter is officially not at nursery which has been exhausting to say the least, my son is off school and currently being homeschooled, which is something I never thought I’d see and oh, how I miss swanky bars and my nights out…

Turning 31 on Sunday was a little depressing, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a little cry, but I did have an awesome day and here’s why…

What I got for my 31st birthday

I got these bronze moon earrings that kind of reminded me of the Moon on the Mighty Boosh…

I remember when that came out (I know I’m old) it was something I loved so much, all those years ago…

Bronze also symbolises strength and stability which is something I have come to accept with age. That’s one amazing thing about being older, I know I have the resilience to go the distance…

I also started blasting Fleetwood Mac, who I’ve always loved, but I was just filled with this sense of awesomeness. I mean, music has just become more magical since the lock down, it’s my only form of escapism now and I am truly grateful for the sounds.

My auntie Lucy sent me this picture of when I was little. Again family has become so important to me over the years, but even more so now I can’t see them.

I remind myself of Bjork on this photograph. Like a little Bjork, which is amazing because the first album I ever owned with Bjork’s debut and my auntie Lucy bought it for me when I was 6 and it’s still an album I love. Aunties are the best.

I went for a Costa coffee at the drive through, my first proper coffee of the Apocalypse, American style. Oh sweet coffee, how I have missed you. Also my two day hangover much appreciated it.

A cocktail set off my parents. They even got me some little umbrellas and a menu… hence me posting my blog post a day late ha!

It snowed in my tiny cottage garden and I got to build a tiny snowman with my toddler. We gave him an amethyst nose and I realised I’m terrible at making snowmen, but my daughter still enjoyed it.

Finally I got a sense of freedom, I spoke about it in yesterday’s blog post. A photography post called Rose of Thorns

I feel like I’ve finally shrugged off that depressing feeling of not being married yet and I’m actually really grateful that I’m not. I’m free and happy…

I don’t want to be tied down or chained to a conventional concept. I am excited about my future again and ready (when it’s safe to) explore the world with my unbound freedom and sense of adventure.

I am confident in my uniqueness and myself. The world is literally there for my taking and I’m going to take it.

There’s a new moon tomorrow. The new moon in Aquarius symbolises a need for emotional independence and freedom. The new moon brings the end of a cycle and a start of a new one. Enjoy it everyone.

I hope you all have the most wonderful day. See you on Friday ❤️🌈

Soph.
