Day 327: A Peaceful Sunday Getting Things Done

I do love Sundays, particularly when I cook a roast dinner over a few hours and use the time to also potter about doing this and that, and tidying up as I go. By the time the dinner was on the table I had the dishwasher on leaving only a couple of pans on the side. The sun was shining and the washing was on the line… things were going well.

Tidying the study

In the afternoon, I moved the large TV into the study and although it’s slightly too big for the space, it will do until I can rearrange the room or something. I’m actually wondering if the TV can be mounted on the wall as it will then sit back a bit and I’ll be able to open the wardrobe door. There’s no socket on that wall either so I’ve had to use an extension lead. Once I had it all set up, I found a feel good film to watch whilst I continued the sorting and tidying.

The tidying bug is catching

As I walked past my youngest daughter’s room, I noticed that she was tidying up as well. The TV had been in her room temporarily so removing it meant that she had more space again. It’s funny how tidying has a knock on effect.

Feeling better in myself

I’m feeling so much more positive about things today as well. It must be all the self-care I’ve awarded myself over the last few days. It’s really paid off.

Putting everything in its place in this house is a slow process, particularly as we’ve had so much work done recently and everything is higgledy-piggledy. I’m working hard every day to return things to where they need to go and I’m keeping an eye on what’s creeping back.

Back to work

It’s a shame that I have to go back to work tomorrow as I could do with a few more days to get on with things. I’ll only be in the conservatory though so I can still catch up on the odd job or two during my breaks.

I can vacuum again!

My new replacement vacuum cleaner turned up today via DPD.

Shark only received the other one back yesterday and must have immediately sent this one out. That’s very good service. I tested it on one small area upstairs and the amount of dirt it collected made me realise that this place needs a really good vacuum after all the work that’s been done recently! I’ll get onto that tomorrow.

A couple of catch up calls

I had a WhatsApp video call with a friend today who is also decluttering and moving stuff around in her house. We shared a few stories and had a laugh. It was very refreshing.

Being Sunday, I had a lovely skype with my mum and dad. The girls popped into the room to catch up with them as well.

Time to wind down

The aches and pains in my shoulders and neck have gone now but that’s not going to stop me having a relaxing soak in the bath this evening.

I hope you’ve all had a really good weekend doing something you enjoy.

Until tomorrow…
