Then I’m doing a glow up of an area in the garden.
And now look. ⬇️⬇️⬇️
It needs more work, but I can definitely enjoy this little sun trap spot with an espresso ☕️ 😄 The cat has already shown interest. It is still a bit stig of the dump, but considering spent zero £ and anything house or garden improvement is solely done by me it’s quite good. Hubby isn’t involved or remotely interested in diy or anything like that. 🙄
I’m doing ok today. Prob not good diet wise but I deserve a treat or two, so it’s a Chinese takeaway for us tonight! I feel like some progress has been made this week and a lot of things making me fear covid a lot less.
Getting out more, visiting different places, just being back at work etc. Driving lots of miles again and doing the mundane routine means Normality!!! Wooo who’d think that was something I’d crave?! It’s also a bank holiday so three days off with the family to make some memories and looking out for our well-being.
People around seem happy. Trying to please the kids to improve their mood, encourage them to be more confident with post lockdown life. Re-engage the social lives. I think my 17 year old son will be harder work. I also nudging him gently in direction of a part time job isn’t a bad idea for a few quid.
My weekend goals are to see some bluebells. Get on my rusty bike (that means check tyres n brakes)
also strip paint of stair banister to reseal and regloss. Oh and totally bleach clean the shower as there’s mould ughhhh
What a riveting entry haha. I noticed I have some reader traffic, the odd comment and likes. Well hello thank you and how are you? May your weekend be blessed.
a little meme thing for fun?… I’m a Scorpio ♏️ what are you? Trust me to be murderous 😂
This diary entry thing is literally only read by me lol. Well that just means I can write what I want. Lots of stuff on my mind. Overthinking and pondering… trying to figure out this thing called life still haha… describe in one word how I feel… let’s say LOST.
Lost is a good way to sum it up in the briefest term. There’s a few golden nuggets in my daily life. Health has to be appreciated. My family and their health is my priority and with gods help it’s great.
a few things I call successes have occurred. Haircuts for the whole family
we went out for a meal. Ate outside but the venue and food were simply amazing. That was just divine.
I have a motivation and it drives me stronger and further energetically some days. Been trying to direct it so, achieve a lot on those good days. Better weather helps a lot. Especially affecting my mood positively.
I need to power my diet better at the mo. I have eaten too well lately. My foodie side has been urging me to indulge. Particularly when I’m more unhappy than usual.
money is an issue as I spend more than I work. It’s an adjustment I struggle with. But the great news I have banned myself from dabbling on silly spin/bingo sites. Yay for any pride and achievements. Whoop 🙌
But you know the most important realisation lately has been I don’t need people, well certain people. Thinking I do well without, I’m super strong 💪 get on, get over and don’t give a fuck about the shitbags who float around your life when it suits! So an extra yayyy for that. I’m 40 and solid and stable and self assured YAASSSS 😀
If you’re reading please leave a wee calling card, comment, reply, just say hi, and if you’re like me struggling know you can overcome hurdles and speaking shit out even if to yourself is powerful 💪
Feeling ok. Work is fine. Shop opens next wk like all nonessential in the uk 12th April is the day!
Still half term. It’s been super cold too so although desperate to do stuff like going out, do some gardening and decorating I have no mojo when the temp is like -2.
I’m trying to motivate myself a bit though, hard as it is at the moment. Feel like I need a big cuddle or something. Feeling just a tiny bit run down. I’m going to warm the house up and get dinner on early lol. Will be nice for hubby when he gets home. ❤️ Also chat with my eldest daughter. Her mental health suffered a lot over this year, talking seems to be helping a bit. She’s a good girl.
How beautiful is the local park looking right now? Don’t be fooled by the sunny appearance, it was deathly arctic 🥶 I am trying to add a positive picture in every post I do. Let me know if you stop by? I have no readers 😂
Ok had heart to heart with husband. Seems a bit better speaking out and he seems to be understanding but I’m staying wary for now.
A positive is that I’ve returned to work. It feels great actually. I do have less home time though so house jobs seem to get pushed back a bit and the energy isn’t so abundant but I’m determined to get a few jobs ticked off at the weekend.
I want to get the fence and gate painted. Also have a few plants to stick out. I have plans for the garden. Love getting excited about anything to do with the house and garden especially when spring and summer are in clear sight.
I bought a few little bits and pieces today.
And then here’s a few things I managed to get for FREE (from my work)
