Free time

Here is a list of things that have happened since abruptly leaving my job on Tuesday:

  • I had a long lie. On a weekday. And done nothing all day.
  • I went to Dundee to visit my sister and bought things to make her new flat feel homely.
  • We found a potential new house. Scott and our families went to view it. He called solicitors and we sorted out an agreement in principle.
  • I went to Let’s Eat Glasgow and ate some amazing food.
  • I had an orange hot chocolate and felt instantly Christmasy.
  • I posted my zone card for a refund on the remaining three weeks that I no longer require for my notice period.
  • I posted more letters this week than I have in the past few years.
  • I tried weetabix and I can’t believe I refused it as a child. 
  • I tried some beer. Still disgusting.
  • I stopped hoarding empty perfume bottles. I really need to get more to replace the finished ones.
  • Bullet journalling.
  • Played games in a pub for the first time. Who knew staking mini plastic chairs was so fun.



My sister left home on Saturday to start a new adventure at university in Dundee. I’m actually really sad that my partner in crime lives on the East coast nowΒ and that she won’t be sitting in my room late at night telling me all about her day, eating pot noodles with me. I do wish I was there to do it all with her but I suppose everyone needs to fly solo some time.

We spent the whole of Saturday moving her belongings from the car to her new home on the third floor of the student accommodation and making her room look really homely by setting up her TV, Xbox and putting up her fairy lights. Then sadly we had to leave and make the two hour drive back home. I’m a very emotional person, but held it together surprisingly well. I figured, if Jayne saw me upset then she’d get upset that we were leaving and we couldn’t be having that.
