What is it with me?! I’m gonna be so disappointed when we hit day 1100 and I’m still expecting it to be day 2000 🤦🏻♀️😂
Anyway, FANTASTIC sleep last night. It seems I can only drink water and decaf coffee to have any chance of sleeping these days. Goodness only knows how I slept on 6 cups of coffee and a bottle of red wine in the olden days?!?!
I’m still loving the hotel/holiday home effect of swapping bedrooms. It gives you a wee smile as it just feels so very different waking up in a new room. It also helps that the rooms that we have worked on are actually spotlessly clean. I can’t tell you how good that makes me feel. A tidy house is a very tidy and clear mind, in my head.
I still have a computer in the small toilet, an extra door in the bathroom and stuff everywhere but the potential is so exciting!!!
Craig’s been a superstar today and moved us into the new living room which was our old bedroom. We’ve decided to call the rooms by their new names…. The living room formerly known as the bedroom 😂😂 gets a bit wordy.
He’s moved so much furniture on his own!! I am very grateful as I really wasn’t relishing the “bite your head off” furniture move. 😂
It’s 7.20pm and I’ve had to force myself to sit down and write this. I’ve been putting things away trying to control the mess.
I’ve cooked a lovely Aldi crumbly Mozzarella and Balsamic Chicken with herby potatoes and broccoli. I ate it in my new living room. The tv seems very far away 😂
It seriously needs decorated but that will have to wait.
It’s lovely to have this feature wall as part of our living room and not just behind the bed.
The tealight village has found a new home!
And finally my Hope Blamire original painting has pride of place on the wall. Think Bhru is checking it out?!?
This is how the room used to look!
I’m sure we’ll change it a lot moving forward but it’s lovely to have something to focus rather than vegging in front of the tv!
I’m listening to Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast today with Melissa Urban. She’s written books on setting boundaries and she talks about the importance of putting yourself first before others.
Now it’s quite toe curling at times but it’s a great listen. I’ll post the link.
Happy Place – setting boundaries
Boundaries have really helped my recovery. They are not easy to set. Awkward and difficult to stick to at times but I need to be strong to help keep my peace. I can’t do anything that I don’t want to do anymore as I not my best self.
I’m not proud of some of the things I have done but I have done them for, what I thought, were the right reasons for me. I know I have upset some people along the way but good friends will understand and respect your boundaries.
The podcast is a great listen.
Off to do some more tidying up!
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️
