the diary #04 ♥

I am back with a brand new diary post and I finally feel like my old self again. The months in lockdown away from my family and friends were pretty tough but I didn't realise how hard I was finding it until now. I struggled looking after a 10-month-old by myself, especially when Ollie had to work and to be honest, I felt quite lonely inside the flat. Fast forward five months and I am typing this in my mum's garden in the sunshine, while I sip on a chilled glass of sangria. This week I have finally had my nails done, I've caught a tan from sitting in the garden and today I have had a few highlights and layers put in my hair. 
It sounds simple but what a difference a few treatments can do to your mood. I feel so relaxed and content and I feel incredibly refreshed. I am dying to book a spa appointment, a massage is certainly overdue. I have been picking Sofia up and she is getting heavier by the day, which is not great for my back. Minus being her personal climbing frame, I finally took Sofia to the park to see the slides and swings, and although she is too young to properly run around and explore yet, it was lovely for her to see other children running around. I haven't been able to take Sofia to her regular playgroup and I was worried how it would affect her by not seeing any other children for five months.
Seeing my family again has really helped and not only does she have a new swing and a ball pit, she has everyone running around after her and she couldn't be happier. Minus the delightful new government program for 50% off restaurants, I have been eating quite healthy and walking the dogs every evening. It just feels lovely to get out of the flat and it has been forever since I walked the dogs. I have visited Wagamama's twice this week and I am on cloud nine. I have certainly missed restaurants and eating inside. I am taking Sofia to Godstone Farm at the weekend and I can't wait for her to see the different animals for the first time. What are your plans for the weekend? I'll catch you in my next Diary post ♥
