Flotsam and Jetsam

I’m finding it quite hard to write at the moment. I generally like to write about positive things because that’s what I enjoy reading about on other blogs and social media platforms. I enjoy seeing things that make people happy and it helps to keep my mental health strong.

I’ve been aware recently though that my ‘Pollyanna’ style isn’t for everyone and as a result, I’m now spending far too much time trying to anticipate and avoid words and topics that are likely to attract scorn. I guess folk could just stop reading or unfollow me but hey ho. Does anyone else experience this? Do I just need to grow a thicker skin??

Pity party over and on a more positive note (haha), we’ve just spent a really enjoyable few days on the East Coast visiting Filey, Scarborough and Bridlington. It’s the first family holiday we’ve had in two years and I think it did us the world of good.

Eddy finally emerged from the dark, teenage cocoon of his bedroom and spent some time in the sunshine without withering away. Pud got to take his daily walk along the endless stretch of powdery sand. I swam in the sea and shared Pimms and prosecco on the beach with a friend who I met up with. All really simple things which we’ve not been able to do for a long time 😊
