Daily Diary – January 2021
My daily diary where I will write a few sentences about each day. By doing this I hope to discover and appreciate the finer moments in my life and perhaps recall the journey of this year when I reach the end.
From the people I meet, the video games I play or the time I go to bed, good days and bad days, I will continue to write.

Happy New Year! Went for a walk with Lisa and her boyfriend in the evening, walking their friends dog. Continued playing Dynasty Warriors 9 on PS4. Went to bed around 10pm.

Woke up very early and played PS4 all day. Met Nicola and Paul for a walk around the park at 8pm and went to McDonald’s on the way home.
Met Dani, an ex work colleague from the supermarket and I hadn’t seen her since I left last January. We just sat in our cars down at the beach and chatted for 2-3 hours. Then when I got home I played PS4 late into the night.
Traveled into town with Erin to get new vape juice. My new vape also arrived, it’s so cool! Nicola Sturgeon announced lockdown starting at midnight. Not working in the office until further notice.
Not at work today. Continued playing PS4 all day. Ordered takeaway. Received a phone call to ask me to return to work tomorrow as my job cannot be done from home.
First day back at work, car was frosty! Only 2 people in large office so I cleaned up my new desk where I will be working from for the next few weeks. Discussed workload with colleague for the next few weeks. Plenty to do. Went to supermarket at night to stock up on essentials and get fuel.
Big day at work doing a stock take. There was so much lifting to do. Also hoovered the office and tidied up a little more. I am exhausted but happy to keep myself busy. Played FF14 with Mike all night.
Asked to leave work early today as I was exhausted. Ordered takeaway and completed Dynasty Warriors 9 (platinum trophy). I feel satisfied. Then I played Final Fantasy 12, a save file from 2017, got frustrated so played FF14 with Mike.

Saturday. Woke up at 4pm. Met Lisa for a walk at 9pm, ended up waking for 2 hours. Paths were so slippy and my legs were killing me. I enjoyed getting out for fresh air and to be able to socialise a little.
Woke up at 4pm again. Started playing ‘Beyond: Two Souls’, working through my back catalogue of games.
Monday at work today. Finished stock take. Started on our next tasks. Had quite a big lunch. Had a long nap when I got home. Played more ‘Beyond: Two Souls’. Late night gaming session.

Saturday walk with Lisa was moved to tomorrow because we were both a little exhausted. I also just wanted to play games. So I never left the house at all.

Got a new mobile number today as it was a better deal for data and a new network. Had a chilled evening and played FF14 with Mike.
Drove work van today and bumped into Ben. We waved to each other but didn’t chat much. Went to supermarket for food for the rest of the week and some energy drinks. Watched some coronation street.
Long day at work, not much happened, I Didn’t nap in the afternoon. I played FF14 with Mike until late. I had an early night.
