I’ve been struggling to find half my clothes in the bedroom…. Drawers have become messy and stuff seems to be hiding so I decided to do a wee spring clean and have a bag of clothes for charity to show for it!
Was really cathartic and I can be in the bedroom now without being overwhelmed by stuff being everywhere.
We store a fair bit of the camping gear in here so it can seem like a dumping ground if it’s not controlled. Jeez it’s all about the control in my world eh?!?
I had the drawers and wardrobe cleared before 11am. Pretty good going.
I hoovered the rest of the downstairs and even decided to do a wee mini service on the hoover. In a house with 3 dogs the hoover is never going to keep up…… we have the Shark and I’m sure I’ve said before that I’m I’m not impressed with it at all. However, maybe I don’t look after it….. so today I did!
The following pic is not for the faint hearted. This is the Shark Anti Wrap Hair Vacuum cleaner…..
So you’ll be pleased to know that’s all gone now and I took out all the filters and washed them, then cleaned out the inside of the hoover itself.
Craig then starts to empty out his car at the front door to…… uh oh…..yup you guessed it…. Start hoovering it out. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️😂
The guts of the hoover were drying on the radiator….. 😬
I took Calaidh and Bhru up the hill for a walk but I’m feeling pretty shattered. It’s an effort. I feel exhausted but it’s been a long hard week of overthinking and I’m already pre-overthinking this week.
So yeah I need to stay in control this week and not overthink things. Everything is in place, it just needs doing and I am more than capable of doing it. I just need to remember that. I need to focus on being present in the moment and appreciating it.
Today is World Mental Health Day and I’m not quite certain what that means but at least it gets us talking about a mental health.
It’s important to talk about your feelings and not keep them bottled up. My chat overflows to anyone who will listen. 😂
So I came through to my clean and tidy and organised bedroom for a wee lie down. A wee chill. I shut the door. Bliss.
Somehow I seem to have been “sprung”…. Found out. 🐶🐶🐶
The bed is such a great vantage point for the comings and going’s from the village pub.
It’s really relaxing. 😳
So I think we all need that Sunday afternoon reminder that we’ve got what it takes to handle everything this week throws at us.
Here are some photos of the ivy from this morning that always makes me smile this time of the year. I used to sit and watch it change colour when I was off sick. It was a sign of time passing….
It’s just beautiful in the sunlight this morning.
So be like the ivy and show everyone your colours this week, be vibrant, bright and happy. True happiness is here and now. Stop and take a moment to appreciate being alive.
I know…. I hear myself. But it’s true.
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
