Day 255: A Sense of Calm and a Chinese Takeaway

That’s two days in a row now where things have been going well and I’m feeling calm. I’ve had more successes at work i.e. people emailing me or coming up with answers before I’m having to chase them, and things are feeling tidier around the house.

It could be that I’m just going through my day not worrying so much. It’s like I have a new sense of calm about me; I literally feel like I’ve put the brakes on, slowed down and stopped reacting to everything. It feels good.

I finished work just after 5.30pm today, shut down my laptop for the weekend and tidied my desk. I then stayed in the conservatory and had a half hour nap. It was so wonderful. Just before falling asleep I was just staring at these beautiful pink geraniums…

I was going to cook spaghetti bolognese this evening but my husband wanted a Chinese takeaway so I just went with the flow and that’s what we ordered. This did result in me having to go out and collect it, but at least there was very little cleaning and tidying of the kitchen afterwards. The duck in pancakes is my favourite bit.

We got given a free bottle of wine which we decided to save for another day. There are also leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow.

I’m feeling really tired now and all that’s left for me to do is have a bubble bath and a good night’s sleep.

Happy weekend everyone!

Until tomorrow…
