Mum and dad arrived at 11:30 last night, so obviously the first thing to do was go out for a few drinks and a chat with someone for work. Having them here is amazing. So much less pressure having them in the house. Cleary too many drinks…

Day 2. Every 30seconds for 20min. 1x clean and jerk @ 70kg. Challenging but manageable weight. Two days of exercise and I feel like a different person. Fitter, happier, (possibly) more productive.

Parcel collection in China. Parcels don’t get delivered to your flat, instead they go into a locker or to one of these places, within walking distance. You get a text with a code to collect it. It’s just extra busy since China has a massive online sale.

Yesterday L took the kids out for a couple of hours. We always tend to do things altogether at the weekend. Having the time alone just for a couple of hours was genuinely glorious. I felt refreshed as a result.

Parents. I feel like with time being so limited between work and home. I need some things to do that aren’t eating food I shouldn’t and playing with my phone. Any other ideas?!

We drove past this building a lot and I’d always just assumed it was some sort of government building as it’s pretty imposing. Yesterday we saw a Paw Patrol show inside it though…
