Monthly Roundup: February 2020

Is it strange it only felt like yesterday February began?

This month went quicker than the start of the year as January felt like forever, though that’s not to say I haven’t been busy.

I’ve published less than what I posted last month for a valid reason.

The last few weeks have been chaotic as I’ve had the odd occasional down day over the previous weeks.

I’ve worried a lot about my mum’s health while having to deal with some problems at work, with the added anxiety of our kitchen and bathroom being ripped out and redesigned from scratch to ensure my mum’s health and safety is paramount.

It has admittedly got to me.

I wanted you to know as my mental health has been affected due to the stress & anxiety I’ve faced in recent weeks with everything that’s been going on.

It has been a hectic couple of weeks, but the good news is the kitchen and bathroom are almost ready, though we’re waiting for the last of the kitchen and bathroom work to be completed.

The work’s almost complete, and I’ve been open with family and friends about how I genuinely feel and felt you all had a right to know as I know I haven’t published as much as I thought.

I’ll quickly summarise the photo moments published throughout February.

1.2.2020 – February got off to a quiet start considering I’ve been working some of the time while using the free time I have off work to produce my photography work which is a lovely feeling.

8.2.2020 – It was a beautiful day!

The sun shone; the weather was just right, and the feels of Winter slowly fading made the beautiful sunny weather feel like it was Spring.

13.2.2020 – As the sun-set over Orpington, nature’s path slowly cleared!

19.2.2020 – There’s never a dull moment when you’re amid mass rainfall, and London Victoria is busy.

25.2.2020 – There was a sombre atmosphere, forming raindrops from the sky.

I sincerely apologise for not posting as often as I hoped. These last few weeks have been hectic and a struggle but I’m relieved that I’ve opened up as I feel a weight has lifted.

I wanted to take a moment to pay tribute to the late TV Presenter, Caroline Flack, who passed away earlier this month, as she was an inspiration and a joy to watch on TV growing up.

She’ll be missed, but Caroline Flack shall forever live on in our hearts.

I’ll see you all in March!
