It’s been a while as a lot has been going on. I have been doing some guest writing pieces, my most recent was one for the campaign on how we will teach mental health in UK schools, so that was exciting to be a part of.
I’ve also been continuing my blog on Psych Central, which will continue at least 4 times a month for the foreseeable future. That is a great honour and work that I love doing. The link for that is below if you haven’t already checked it out.
I’ve also been doing my usual job, which is working from home doing an admin role, it’s full time and takes a lot of my time but I am very grateful to be able to do it. I’ve been working hard on the food prep and on my fitness. These have all been good things in my life.
Unfortunately, there have been some bad bits too. Some of you might already know I love animals and have a lot of them (I did have 6 guinea pigs, a hamster, a rabbit and 3 dogs) but over the last couple of years I’ve lost a lot of my smaller furbabies due to old age and some health issues, over the last few months, in particular, a few of my guinea pigs and my hamster went over rainbow bridge all quite close together which has been really difficult to deal with. Having animals is so worth it but the worst part by far is when you lose them, even if you know you’ve given them the best life possible and they are old, it’s still really tough.
I was struggling quite a lot with this so, in an effort to take a positive outlook on it, I decided to take action and do something positive. I’m doing a sponsored walk with my husband and our biggest dog of 9 miles, to raise money for a local guinea pig charity who do wonderful work taking care of guinea pigs who don’t have forever homes, in memory of my lovely furbabies that have passed away. I feel I have something great to focus on, helping other piggies and doing something good in the name of my dear boys who I’ve lost. It also ties in with my fitness goals, and although it is a huge goal for me with my physical struggles, it’s something I know I can handle with a lot of training.
The link with all the information for the walk is included below, feel free to check it out and share it as much as possible to help raise funds for the rescue centre if you can. A donation would be great too but I’m aware not everyone can help that way.
Thanks so much for reading and I hope you are all well.
Much love xx
