I thought I’d re-instate (or try to) a weekly roundup of me and my families week. Its easy to lose sight of the things you’ve achieved, enjoyed, found challenging, would rather forget!
So I’m going with
- Out of the Ordinary
- The Mundane
Enjoying the sunshine on Bank Holiday Monday – went to Hemsworth Waterpark where we slowly cooked ourselves lazing in the sun, had a picnic, caught up with friends we’d not seen in quite a while.
Being the emotional eater that I am (whether that be happy or sad lol), indulging far too much. Mr Cadbury along with Ben and Jerry are very much my best friends at the moment.
Feeling the benefits of my increased anxiety meds – only way to describe it is feeling more even. Doesn’t sound much, but believe me, I’m grateful, more than grateful that my range of emotions aren’t quite so extreme from one minute to the next (I think the family are grateful too!)
Insomnia – manageable most of the time, but not all, a few pretty bad bouts this week resulting in reduced ability to remember anything. This is what I am blaming for losing my keys in the garage not once, not twice, but 3 times this week. You know, you open the garage (which is actually my store room for all my business stuff). Put the keys down whilst you go searching through the storage boxes, trollies, shelves etc, and instantly forget where you put them down. Then due to the fact you’ve moved loads of stuff around, realise they could be anywhere and spend the next 20 minutes getting more and more frantic that they are forever lost in the abyss. Actually, one of those times, after an extended, long, stressful search in the garage, I actually found them under a tea towel in the kitchen – how they had got from the garage to the kitchen I have no idea!!
Out of the Ordinary
Had to attend an appeal for Jessica’s chosen high school. Not an everyday occurrence. To sit in front of a panel of 3 along with the headmaster of the preferred high school and plead your case is pretty stressful to say the least – fingers crossed for a positive outcome – find out Monday.
Sorted my office – its been getting increasingly worse as I piled more and more stuff on my desk over the recent weeks that I just wasn’t ready or able to deal with. But took a deep breath, gritted my teeth, made lots of different piles all over the desk, floor, in the bedroom. Filed stuff, binned stuff, actioned stuff (well, put in in the action pile.. promised myself I’ll actually action it later!) I don’t work well in chaos and cluttered environments, tidy space, tidy mind.. so here’s hoping I can get caught up on all the stuff I’ve been avoiding doing over the weekend.
