Tea With Hayley | Socially Distanced Walking

Hope you all had a great Bank Holiday weekend. And a very happy Eid Mubarak to those who celebrate! Despite the stupidly hot heatwave we’ve been having, I’ve still poured myself a cuppa to get on with this week’s post.

Highlight Of The Week

I left the house for the first time in 10 weeks! Pre lockdown, I walked a lot (my average steps for last year was around 7k a day!) But as I haven’t been anywhere, I haven’t been able to stretch my leg muscles as much as I used to. So I decided to go on a socially distanced walk down to King’s Cross from north London to get some fresh air armed with a mask and a big bottle of water. All in all, I did almost 20k steps on Friday and let me tell you, my feet absolutely ached so much over the weekend. But I felt good so I am looking forward to building up my stamina again. I downloaded an app called Goals Fitness to help me out to get back to that mode. The app said my total steps taken in February (my first full month out and about as ‘normal’) was around 200k which is NUTS compared to now. Hopefully it doesn’t take me that long to get back to that. Here’s some pics from my last outing!

Good Things I’ve Watched

I finally watched the Disney+ original series High School Musical: The Musical: The Series over the weekend. It was quite a charming series! I liked that it was more of an homage to the original film series and it didn’t feel like a copycat. The characters all felt like they were their own person and really stood out. I did find the whole mockumentary aspect of the show quite bizarre though. What was the point of it? But all in all, a really charming, inclusive and wonderful tribute to the High School Musical films. It’s quite interesting to see how impactful those films are more than 10 years after HSM1 was released.

I also watched the first series of Dead To Me on Netflix! It’s an intruiging show about this friendship that forms between Christina Applegate and Linda Cardinelli’s characters when they meet at a grief therapy session. It was such an enjoyable show with great plot twists and characterisation throughout. Although, I will admit, this show is described as a comedy and I didn’t find it very funny as such. But I still thought it was cracking TV.

That’s it from me this week. Hope you all have a great week!

Stay safe and until next time,
