It sucks to be an adult sometimes…. I have way too much adulting to do today and I’m ready for a rest!
It’s 19.11 and I haven’t even thought about the blog… well of course I have… I’ve just started it so that’s a ridiculous statement. 🤣
I had an amazing sleep last night, hardly surprising after the night before, I was out for the count until just before the 6.30 alarm.
My anxiety was pretty active when I woke up and I would go so far as to say I felt really off kilter this morning.
I felt calm and in control but there was a mini panic attack taking place inside. I felt jittery and a real sense of doom as if something was going to go very badly wrong. Of course it didn’t.. nothing did.
I had a task at work that was going round in circles so I kept putting it off, maybe that was eating away at me. Today I “ate that frog” 🐸 and just concentrated on it to get it done.
That was a phrase Craig said to me with when I was struggling with anxiety in my old job. It stuck with me. Eat that Frog….Once it’s done, it’s done.
So another busy day and lots of customers in today which makes it go even faster.
I had to rush home tonight… ok leave on time… as we had a man coming to help us write our wills…. We are not getting any younger. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️🤣
I had to talk him around the village road closure so he was a bit late arriving.
We finally have two large heavy bags in the middle of the roadworks to stop everyone from moving the cones and driving through our road closure. So many people ignore the signs and drive through…… not this time!!!
It’s funny how that bothers me so much… Mrs follow the rules watched a guy move the cones and drive through this morning and he then went and put them back?!? Should I have been less mad at that??
Anyway, the will guy was very lovely and helpful and we ended up organising Power of Attorney at the same time. We could have put that money towards a trip to the Maldives but hey…. We’ve been very sensible instead. It’s tough being a grown up at times. 🥴
No rest for the wicked as we had to go over to the Village hall to check the oil tank to see if we needed to order oil. Craig has very kindly agreed to check this for me as my short 5ft4ins is not conducive to sticking a bamboo cane into an oil tank while balancing up a step!!
We noticed an apparent issue with an overflowing septic tank…. Right next to the oil tank… another issue to be resolved… but definitely not tonight! 🤦🏻♀️ I will not share that photo….. 💩
Then….. home to stick some pizza in the oven for a quick dinner.
I feel frazzled but it’s only because I’ve not had that essential time to chill…. I need some down time or me time every day.
I have an hour before bed. Need to get out do these work clothes and watch some mindless tv!
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
