The Changing Seasons – June 2020

The Changing Seasons – June 2020

The Changing Seasons post, hosted by Su at Zimmerbitch.

Still off work, I went to meet my mum, sister and niece in the park for a picnic. It was lovely to spend time with them, enjoying the sunshine, playing Frisbee and looking at the birds. For me, the simple pleasures are always the nicest.

The biggest news of the month is that I have moved into my own place. A lovely little duplex apartment near the town centre. I was anxious about moving whilst in lockdown, so I waited until things had eased a bit. Then I was worried about finances, so I waited some more. In the end, I decided to take the risk and just go for it. I have always said, if I become unhappy I will do something about it. I loved living with my brother and his fiancé, but it was time to move on.

One of the things I was looking forward to was cooking for myself again and eating the things I like to eat. So far, the following dishes have been on the menu.

I am so happy now, I have regained my independence which is so important to me. I wonder though, how the hell I ended up back in my home town after living in Thailand for so long. I miss living in Bangkok every day, but I am happy where I am for the time being. I have a good job, my own place, and family and friends not far away.

Let’s see what the future holds. I am enjoying travelling along my new path for now. Even more so because I know I have the resolve to change my life and move on again if need be!
