I wanted to give an autumnal update on what’s been happening in my day-to-day life in the past couple of months. The days have rolled by and I’ve been silent on here for a while now. I didn’t intend for it to be so long, but it’s all too easy to get side-tracked by the daily grind. Life has been tiring for a lot of people lately. The changing of the seasons, along with the prolonged stress of the pandemic will be taking its toll on many folks.
In the summer, I started a new job. It’s in retail, so I’ve been adjusting to working more hours. Currently, I’m juggling the new job alongside the weekend one. I hope to be able to leave the weekend role in the near future, and I’ve just secured a permanent contract in the new job.
At home, things continue to be challenging with providing support to my in-laws. There does seem to be more positivity in recent weeks though, as we’ve been arranging to put their home on the market. They’ve also been in talks with a financial advisor to sort out their pension plan. This has given us a bit of respite from the influx of calls, despite that we have been feeling run-down for the past several weeks.
Presently we are hoping to make plans to visit my in-laws over the festive period. It will be bittersweet, as this will be the last Christmas they spend in the home Mr Bunny grew up in. We’re hoping that the agents we are marketing their property with will be able to find a suitable property for them to move to, where they will feel comfortable and secure.
This outlook of hope extends to the New Year. I’d love for my immediate family (i.e. the 3 of us) to be able to have something to look forward to. Perhaps an extended holiday, or several shorter breaks. Quality time together seems like it is essential more than ever, so a trip to somewhere warm would be lovely.
In terms of the blog, it has been dormant while I’ve been settling into a busier routine. I do wish to continue writing/posting images, so the domain registration has been renewed for another year. I am concerned that my patchy contributions may have cost me some readers, but if you’re still here reading this, then thank you for bearing with me. I hope people can continue to be kind to one another during these trying times. Being a friend is more important than being right when times are tough.
All the best from Down the Bunny Rabbit Hole, until next time!
