The flow of water is very slow from the taps in the main bathroom and our en-suite, so we asked the plumber if he could get some similar to the ones in my daughter’s new en-suite. They got fitted today and they work really well.
I pottered around the house after that, starting with my usual routine followed by some decluttering. Apart from recycling leaving the house (there seems to be so much of it), I didn’t really identify anything that I could get rid of. For that reason, l didn’t really feel like I made a dent in it today. I think that I’m getting to that point where what’s left is what I actually want. That can’t be the case can it? I still have so much stuff lying around with no home.
I felt the tension in my neck and shoulders again so I took it easy and had lots of breaks. Even though I’m enjoying the time out, I still feel guilty for not spending time clearing space. I know that having time out and relaxing is somehow going to propel me forward into clearing quicker, because my mind will be clearer; however, it’s not stopping me feeling overwhelmed when I look at it all. I will just have to go with the flow and trust the concept.
I cleared a bit of space on the counter tops in the kitchen today and some recycling by the back door. That made me feel happy every time I walked into the kitchen after that. I didn’t get time to finish clearing but I’m confident that I can get most of it done over the weekend.
I also spent some time going through a pile of sheets and blankets in the study. I discovered that I have bedding for beds that we no longer have or that doesn’t go with current colour schemes.
I also have a lot of blankets which we actually do use in the winter, but do I really need so many?
Late afternoon, I was in the mood for watching a film, so my eldest and I laid on the settee with a blanket and watched Judy (the story of Judy Garland). It was really good. I fell asleep after that for half and hour which I obviously needed and I think it did me good.
The girls suggested Dominos for dinner. I fancied fish and chips but they reminded me that we’d had that a few weeks on the trot, so we went for Dominos.
I’ve had a whole week off and I really could do with another one. I still have the weekend though and hope to get quite a bit done.
Hope you all have an enjoyable weekend.
