Day 1008 another pouring wet, rainy day but busy at work… on the tools 🛠️ 😂

It just hasn’t stopped all day….. pouring!

Despite the miserable weather, I’ve had a good day.

I slept like a log last night. Out for the count and didn’t move until I woke about 5.30am. It felt so good. That’s what caffeine free coffee does for me!

I was super toasty at work. I wore warmer clothes today. The office was quiet and I got loads done. I also helped out “on the tools” today!

Where’s Julesie?!?

I just happened to be passing and ended up with a wee job. Holding the bolts with an Allen key while they were tightened from underneath. I was not remotely TERRIFIED the first time I went up in the van…. the second time… no bother at all. Life is just one long learning curve.

I really enjoyed helping out. I got myself into some strange assed positions and it took a bit of time to find the best ways to do it. But I really enjoyed it. To be fair, the part I played was hardly rocket science. 😆 Ali did all the hard work and had me to deal with at the other end… double the work 😂

Here I am up in the sky…. 😂

Also very pleased to get a mention in the Farm members group for losing weight over Christmas!!

I also managed another 17.5 hour fast today. I had my homemade lentil soup for a late morning snack, bean casserole for lunch and cauliflower and broccoli cheese for dinner. All washed down with my vitamins and back on it. This fast is so good for my head. I’m thinking differently about food and feeling so much better for it.

I’ve also thought a lot about our lovely neighbour who died so unexpectedly.

I’d messaged her daughter to express my shock and I told her that I thought her mum was a lovely lady.

In her reply she took the time to tell me that, whenever her mum talked about me, she ended it with saying “she’s a lovely girl”. Of course I didn’t expect a reply. You don’t at those times. You just want to send some love.

What a strength of character , to lose your mum so suddenly and yet, in your grief, give someone a smile. I was so incredibly touched by that. So grateful she took the time to say that.

The world needs a lot more of that. ♥️ as I said last night, hug your loved ones a bit closer.

Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
