Weekend Update

This weekend was a chilled one, having Monkey full time for a week is wonderful, but I do need a break, we spend Saturday together, popped to the park, did some pokemon hunting and watched the final of the Masked Dancer.

Sunday, I spent in the bedroom with the dog, while my partner had his two boys. This week is looking great for weather, now Monkey is back at school, I am going to start getting serious about sorting out looking for a job, I think I have got to the point, that I can leave my house, go places that I know well. Also thanks to Pokemon Go, myself and Monkey have randomly left the house to chase Pokemon that we don’t have, which would have been unthinkable 6 months ago, normally its a military operation to get me out the house without a plan.

Of course, doing it by myself might be a challenge, but baby steps. I think for now I just want something part time in the evenings, I have no idea how difficult that is going to be to get though.

I am also in the mindframe, that I am sick of relying on benefits, I hate having a brown envelope come through the door, I hate not knowing how much I get each month because something has randomly changed. I think its good I am now thinking like that, also as I get closer to 40, I am starting to worry about my pension. I have one, but it has not got alot in it and Monkey does not seem keen to keep me in the lap of luxery.

How was your weekend?
