Day 397 day off spent in housework frenzy!!

I wrote that with the voice of a news anchor. Top headline…. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤔🤣

I had plans today. Have to go to the bank as Post Office in Johnstone. Need to wash my hair before I do that as the Post Office will take a new photo for my driving licence which needs renewing. Can’t just turn up looking like I usually do. This requires some effort and planning. So it hasn’t happened!!

So despite Mr Sporty Spice waking me at 4.45am…. he had the gym at 6am 😳😱…. on my day off….. I managed to fall back to sleep until he came back in about 7.30am.

I got up just after 8am and had coffee. It was a lovely morning but the weather isn’t meant to be great for the rest of the weekend. Erm….. what’s wrong with this picture?!?!?

I broke one of the fancy mugs he bought before Christmas….. there are two… one is white bottomed. That one is mine. 😬

You should never spend money on anything breakable in a house with 3 Border Collies…. obviously. I could have blamed them but it was me…. hanging up the washing to dry and thought “ooh, should move that mug while I’m hanging the washing right next to it, I might knock it off…..”

Ta dah…….. 🤦🏻‍♀️😳😬

Moving on…… Craig decided to make up the new shutters for the bedroom today! He has to paint the surrounds first so it’s a big job.


What a difference just like the living room, it’s so much brighter. I could not get my curtains to hang on the curtain poles that were in the house when we bought it. They drove me insane clattering metal rings across the wooden floors every time you opened or shut a curtain. The fleur-de-lis type ends were not removable so there’s a limit to the kind of curtains you could fit. Anyway. No more!!

So while this was all going on…. I snuck up on some housework. Genuinely had no plan to do anything although it badly needed done. I was like a wummin possessed. Did the whole house AND made a lovely salad for lunch…..

Days like today are so lovely. I’ve enjoyed my day, I feel accomplished, I feel decluttered. That’s great for the mind.

I am calm, relaxed and awfy chuffed with myself. I even wonder who I actually am. What planets aligned to allow this smooth and plain sailing day?!

Is it that simple…. I actually stop worrying, stressing and being anxious and just get on with things? I’m not feeling like I wasted a day…. it feels good!

So we also completely changed around the bedroom. We had an old disused fireplace in our bedroom and we’ve taken that away and covered it with the bed instead.

It feels like a new room. I’m lying on the bed after having a lovely chat with mum and my view is so different. Be interesting to get up for the loo in the middle of the night…. where will I end up?!?!?

And finally my new awning has arrived!! We ordered it back in at the end of February and knew it would be the end of April but it’s here finally. Far too tired to do anything with it today after housework-fest so will put it up tomorrow.

A very good day. I’m still in jammies and it’s after 5 but that’s ok. The world is back up and running and Craig and I still haven’t been out anywhere yet but that will come.

Right now I’m happy lying on the bed admiring my room from a new angle. Simple things in life.


Oh and just to add to it all…. Tartan sent a message to say take the day off on Monday as no one else will be in. Oh, ok then, if you’re sure?!? 🤔😬😆

Don’t have to tell me that twice…. woo hoo!!

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
