Life Lately: March Edition!

April, huh? I honestly don't know how I'd open these blog posts every month if I couldn't talk about how fast this year was going... ... ... Nope, can't do it. How fast is this year going?! We're a third of the way through the year already, and I am not okay with that. But before we dive on into the April blog posts, let's take a quick look at what I got up to in March.
Doing...a lot of eating out, shopping and book buying. But would you expect anything less from me by now, really? So, March saw me have my therapy review. All went well, although my depression and anxiety scores are very high. I've been put on the wait list to continue with another sixteen sessions of CBT and I'll hopefully start in 12-14 weeks. I also got my referral through to gynaecology sorted in March, after it came to light that my doctor's surgery had missed the note attached to my ultrasound results requesting a referral be made. It's not until June, but at least it's booked now. We're finally moving forward. What else? We celebrated lots of birthdays in March; my husbands, my aunts, my father-in-laws, my best friends. For my husband's birthday, we went for a lovely meal with his mum and dad. For my best friends, we went out for lunch. March also marked four years since Harley joined our family. Four years! How?! I wrote a post about the last four years of cat ownership. You can read it here. My grandparents came to visit, and I made my first solo drive to Cardiff to see my momma for the first time in nearly four months. We also got our boiler serviced, and I cleaned our washing machine. Oh, and I bought a new laundry basket. Exciting stuff, right? Gosh, reading all that back I am exhausted. I didn't realise I had done so much in March!
Buying...all the cleaning products. I'm not the biggest fan of Mrs Hinch, I found she made my cleaning OCD worse on the whole, but I got the biggest urge to spring clean in March. I picked up loads of new cleaning products in good old B&M and set to cleaning the house from top to bottom. I also picked up some of the new haircare products from Soap & Glory and tbh, I'm not impressed. It leaves my hair limp and lacklustre. So I won't be buying again. At the end of the month, I decided to see what all the fuss was about with regards Mane 'n' Tail shampoo and conditioner. I ordered one of each from Amazon, and just as soon as I've used up the last of the Soap & Glory shampoo and conditioner, I'll be giving it a try!
Watching...The Disappearance of Madeleine McCann on Netflix. OMG. This series is seriously binge-worthy. Also, Dirty John The True Story on Netflix. And The Case of JonBenet Ramsey on YouTube! So many fascinating true crime docs out at the moment.
Singing along to...Sweet But A Psycho by Ava Max. This song is so catchy, energetic and fun. Whenever this song comes on the radio, I always joke that it's 'my song.' My husband, inevitably, agrees!
Spending...a lot of time getting reacquainted with chocolate. February saw me take part in Dechox; swearing off all things chocolate for the 28 days of Feb in order to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. It was a lot harder than I thought; turns out I'm a major chocaholic. So I've spent March eating ALL the chocolate, and suffering the inevitable migraines that come from overdosing on chocolate!
Thinking about...the future of this blog. Don't worry, I can't see myself abandoning my blog completely. But I definitely feel like I'm falling out of love with my blog. And I need to work out why, and how I can reignite that passion for it I used to have. I'll find a way, I just need a little time.
