I started writing this at the start of November and now November is nearly over 🙃
October was amazing! So much good food and fun assignments and joyful celebration and wonderful company. I am filled with so much love and gratitude 💞
♡ 3 movie screenings: I feel like I’m the only one who didn’t like Killers Of The Flower Moon. But I loved that it was a morning screening exclusively for reviewers cos the theatre was almost e mpty, plus I brought McDonald’s and my bolster in 😂
♡ 2 musicals (& Juliet and Mamma Mia)
♡ 1 tasting (not impressed) + celeb interview (he was fine)
♡ Attended a 2-day copyediting workshop
♡ No hikes but I joined 3 walks
♡ Finally made it to book club! (monthly thing but the last few always clashed with my trips etc)
♡ Took in a hamster lololol
Of course the main highlight would be turning a year older. Ok I acted thick-skinned and all asking people out but it was just an excuse to catch up with those I treasure and it warms my heart that everyone showed up 😍 As they always have.
Anyway the reason why I took so long to get this post out is because I wanted to tell grandmother stories but also don’t want to say too much. I heard from both JH and J for my birthday and I heard from them again this month lol??
One was more impersonal, and I’m pretty sure the other wants me back, both very unexpected because I’m not connected with either on social media (and knowing them, I’m *highly* sure they are not cyberstalking me so I don’t know what prompted the contact), Total silence back from me aka what I do best because idgaf and I’m too busy to gaf.
Me launching into a story at group gathering: “So, you know right…”
Darren: “Ok who messaged you?”
🤣🤣🤣 Do I have a pattern or something??? 🤣

I don’t forget the people who were there whenever I was at my lowest points (it’s no coincidence that they are the same ones I spent my birthday season with), just like I don’t ever forget who caused me pain or left when I needed them.
Here’s a tip: Maybe actually treat me better or value me when I’m still around. Because once I’m gone, I’m gone. Ok byeeee!
