Life Update 03/08/2021
Hello! I stopped writing my weekly posts, I don’t know if you noticed but every week was beginning to be the same and I was struggling to write them. I love updating you guys regularly, I enjoy the method of reflecting on my week and seeing it back. So for now, here’s a life update, to keep you up to date with everything that’s been going on recently.
I don’t know how much I’ve posted on my blog, in fact, I don’t think I’ve posted about it all but a few weeks ago now, we lost Bundy. Our beautiful Conure. It broke my heart and it was a completely avoidable circumstance, the vet’s basically fluffed up and she never came home. Immediately, we went out and got another bird – Obviously, not a case of replacing Bundy but to help me heal. Birds to me are my therapy animal and just a simple cuddle and a sniff with a bird can instantly make me feel calm and semi collected – That’s when Bonnie joined our family and then, 5 weeks after, came Beatrix. I now am the very proud mam of 2 feather babies and I love them, nobody will understand how content I feel when they’re both snuggled into my neck on an evening.
We also lost one of our oldest Rabbits, Bronson. It appeared he had a parasite but it was too far into his system to save him from it and we had to have him put to sleep. I miss his little feistiness every day but absolutely will no more rabbits be joining my household from now on or any rodent type for that matter – there is however always room for dogs, cats and birds.
My mood has been, well, terrible. I’ve really struggled as of late to get my head above the water and increased my antidepressants. The increased dosage took its time to kick in but eventually it did and I am feeling much better and focused. I am now enjoying planning my day’s the evening before and making sure I have much more activities planned for Minnie to encourage her learning.
I’ve found a lot of joy in teaching Minnie at the moment, seeing her pick things up so quickly and coming out with words is just so rewarding, probably one of the most rewarding things as a mother I’d say.
I am working hard on planning and creating content for this blog and my photography blog. I’ve been painting more to get my creative mojo back, painting is always something I’ve turned to when things got bad in my head and it’s most of the time the only time I create the work I’m insanely proud of. I can’t recommend enough, when you’re feeling crappy to really indulge, like selfishly indulge in the one thing that makes you feel better.
