Woo hoo hoo hoo hoo!! Level 0 the day we could never see coming. Despite this blog being about struggling with mental health through COVID-19 lockdown, I’ve been very lazy recently with my updates.
I’ve stopped watching the news and the only time I hear something of any significance now is when someone tells me. Most likely to be Craig but today I got this news at work!
I’ve been invited to a wedding evening reception today too since this announcement. Craig doesn’t know yet! Cries of “what will I wear” were heard round the workshop today….. from the girls obviously. 🥴😆 one of the guys gets married at the end of the month.
So, a bit of reflection from me today…. Not like me eh?!? I’m really enjoying working the longer hours…… yes, honestly…. 😳🥴😆as it’s helping me keep more on top of the day to day work. I think a lot of my work anxiety comes from not knowing things and this way I am more in control.
So far I am more switched on (we can overlook the trying to put the kettle away in the fridge rather than the milk today…these things happen….😳🥴🤣😆) I have more energy, I feel brighter and happier. It’s actually a really lovely feeling. I am WAY more organised. WAY MORE.
Breakfast and lunch are ready the night before along with clothes for the gym and work. I’ve just make salad for dinner and an extra one for tomorrow. (What is happening to me?!?)
I’ve cooked up chilli to freeze to take away in the van at the weekend AND walked the dogs, all since I came home from work and not once have I felt tired, exhausted, sluggish or lethargic. Can I find any more words for tiredness?!?
So I realise, as with everything, there are peaks and troughs, but I am riding this peak and long may it continue. mixing my metaphors again too but hey….
I did my fist customer handover today. Processed payment and ticked a job off the list. It felt really good.
As I walked back into the village a white van flew through at what felt like 60 miles an hour. I gestured for him to slow the ‘f’ down…. He stuck his fingers up at me. I stuck mine up back… the effect was completely lost as I had 3 dog leads in that hand. It just felt better to do something. How would he like it is I drove past his bedroom window at 60mpg….. exactly.
Other than rude man it was a very positive day. I will allow the “I told you so’s”. It just has amazed me as of all the scenarios I played out in my head for this week I was never organised, alert, calm and relaxed….
I even did my knee physio exercises before leaving for work…. I mean…. Come on!!!!
So a good day. More of the same on order please.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
