Behind the scenes

Stock deliveries, lateral flow tests and birthdays

What an interesting few weeks it’s been!

Celebrated my birthday at the end of Jan.  As if it’s not bad enough to be approaching 50, a lockdown birthday is even less fun than a normal ‘I’m a grown up’ birthday.  It started great, teens reluctant to get out of bed before midday and presents were mostly ones I’d chosen for myself.  Combine that with work and study (because my assignment was due and I didn’t think having a birthday was worthy of an extension) it was a fun filled day.

At least I’ve had some new stock to ‘oooh’ and ‘ahhh’ over.  With the cards it’s easy to admire ones that are destined for customers, but with The Body Shop at Home, the temptation to sniff every new fragranced skin and hair care product is high!  I’ve had great fun planning out how to make our monthly themed boxes special though, I hope the recipients approve!

As if the ‘day job’ wasn’t interesting enough at the moment, the powers that be decided we need to do regular testing.  I totally support the need to keep my colleagues safe, but I detest sticking swabs down my throat and up my nose, so now having to do it twice a week is a challenge.

I swear I sneezed eight times today!

I’ve also started reading a few personal development books.  I’ve struggled with a negative mindset and it’s finally time to change that as it’s holding me back.  I’ve started journaling, and the book I’m reading right now is this one.

If you have any suggestions please share in the comments!

At least it’s February – one step closer to a more normal world.

Keep safe
