Cuppa tea, then breakfast. Then I'll make a start.

Think I'll start with putting the washing machine on,
Strip the bed and put fresh bedding on

Washing up - got the fridge drawer to do
Hoovering
Rubbish out
Recycling out
Fridge/Freezer check
Clear sofa


We'll see how much I get done, want to go for a walk too today
Meal planning

Time for more tea!

You've been very productive in the house! Thumbsup.

Not me though. I woke up with acid reflux and ended up puking. I've been in bed all day trying to get rid of my blah feeling and a headache. Yay life.

I will pick life back up again on Monday hopefully.

Tea has been yummy today and comforting.

Haven't done any more, went over to my Dad's and ordered him a new hoover, went to the shops, only wanted a new backpack but also bought several books and a Trivial Pursuit game, plus a jigsaw for my mother, got to love charity shops being open on a Sunday!

i still have my backpack from 2006 xD

Today my back hurts so bad, I couldn't do much.

I've done a few things though. Trying my best. The curtain stuff went fine, I am going to keep doing that this week.

Some things are thrown out, and some planks I wanted to throw out I realised I can use them on the balcony.

Tried to tidy up the kitchen.

Sorted out the fridge, threw out what was over date and tried to clean it but back was getting worse.

Groceries showed up and after a few days I finally had some crackers and cheese, coffee and some water.

DHL delivery was here.

Oh, I got my gov invite to get the jab, so I will have to look into that soon. I just want my body to be a bit more 100% than it is now, so I don't kick it while it's down when i let it attack my immune system.

Sister and I had a chat about the court case that's hopefully at the tail end. So that took time away from cleaning.

We will see how tomorrow is I guess.

Phew, woke up after an okay sleep. I have some other body complaints, but the most of the backpain is gone. Am I alive again?

Time to catch up, I have things to throw out, I have things to hang up, I have things to move, and I have the kitchen to keep clean, I have a laundry to do, and I have things in the bedroom piled up on two chairs that need to get folded and put away.

I had a chat with my niece about what to do with the balcony and she made some great arguments and I am more confident about updating the balcony to enjoy the summer on it.

I really want to go visit my mom today but I am not 100% and I want to do a covid self test today to make sure it's from the food and not from a surprise covid infection. And I don't want to risk my back with long walks to the train and stuff. 10th of June is her birthday and i want to 100% go thursday. Why push and risk, when I can be patient and enjoy her birthday.

To guarantee no backpains I will not hang up the curtains etc, and I will wait taking others down to wash. I can wait a week. Instead I will complete dusting the little room and washing the floor again. I have laminated protection bottle I need to learn to use. so I can look into that.

Have a nice day everybody. best of luck.

Well, today was a write off as my friend came over for a cuppa and we ended up at the pub for a meal!
Then it was coffees time.

Tomorrow's list is huge! LOL

I have a new to me dining table being delivered so the kitchen has to be gutted along with the current table photographed and popped on facebook to sell, then dismantled and put in the hallway which i'll have to tidy too! Plus usual stuff like washing up.

I kept telling myself, it's okay you're hurting, dont worry, you can do it tomorrow.
tomorrow's water maintenance day, all day no water.

so i've been trying my best here to do stuff, but my body isn't happy.

Last week went so well and this week it's just a thing each day. lol.

Yesterday I did very little. I tried to get things done that needed to get prepared. And then I took the evening to just chill and not get anxious. I was tired in time and went to bed and slept better (even if it was terrible) compared to other days. Which will help me today.

Today's my mom's birthday. I haven't seen her since she moved into the care home, I finally have so much behind me that I can go, I can't NOT go on her birthday. I am excited to see her again. It will be so headachy and sweaty - especially with this weather. And I am not used to travelling to that town in like a decade. We will see how it goes, probably okay, but still.

No cleaning up, I have tried to keep up, but I did bare minimum. This week went to poo anyway, but I tried.

With 1.17 of Minecraft happening soon, it will also take away some time. So I have to rethink my schedule soon about what I do after waking up (cleaning), then shower and relaxing, probably visit my mom in the afternoons every 3rd/4th day. And do some Minecraft management in between.

Quite a list though, nice progress.

I've done what I've done and then went to the farm to pick up two more bags and have a bike ride. I took iced coffee and sandwiches with me and emily and her friend was there to work on stuff, so we had a picnic (and then nix called haha, awesome!)

Monday, time to reschedule my brain.

Okay, I have time again to pick up where I left off. I think. What a week.

10-12 delivery.

It's now 8am.

I want to go back into the little room and just think about what I can do. If that means paint a wall, I will just do it and see how far I get. yikes. I wish i had help.
