Burlesque and a Break (#TheSundayPost)

The Sunday Post

The Latest in my Life 🌤️

I’ve been feeling pretty tired this week because we have a lot going on both at work and home, so I’m going to focus on the positives:

  • My daughter is getting on well with her Omnipod insulin pump and is getting braver with each change.
  • My team at work are wonderful, supportive people.
  • Choir was really uplifting.

I also had a fun night out with a couple of friends to “An Evening of Burlesque“! I’d never been to anything like that before, but it was fascinating. It’s such a beautiful, empowering artform that celebrates women of all shapes and sizes. As well as being captivating dancers, each performer had a different talent, such as playing the piano, singing, hoops and even riding a unicycle. It was a great experience and fun to do something different. I also ran into a couple of friends from choir.

Yesterday, I went to my mum’s for the day on my own to have a bit of a break and a catch-up, which was lovely. It was nice to do nothing other than chat with my mum and stepdad and we had takeaway pizza for tea. I also got to see my Grandad and show him a video of my last choir concert.

Today, I’ve been catching up with some household chores and life admin, like updating my daughter’s care plan for school and setting up her new diabetes book with all the carb values for her school dinners. Then this afternoon we’ve been watching TV in bed, which has been very relaxing.

Reading 📖

I’m still reading The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett and I’ve started a new one with my daughter: Seren the Sausage Dog Fairy by Daisy Meadows.

Watching and Listening 📺

  • I’m not usually a big fan of reality TV, but we have been tuning in to I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here on ITV purely to see Matt Hancock get roasted and tortured, which is very cathartic. For my friends outside the UK, Matt Hancock is a controversial politician who broke his own government’s rules during our Covid-19 lockdown, so he is extremely unpopular with the British public.
  • A friend from work set up a playlist of uplifting and funny songs on Spotify so I’ve been enjoying adding songs to that.

Singing 🎵

Choir gave me a much-needed boost this week. We practised lots of our Christmas songs and I’m starting to feel much more confident about the harmonies.

Our next “gig” is at Boston Stump (St. Botolph’s Church, Lincs) on Thursday 24th November at 6:30pm, the same night as the Christmas market and Illuminate parade. Please drop in and see us if you’re in town for the festivities.
