You find me lounging in my bedroom having a little me time as nobody wants or needs me right now. I am not saying that in a negative way. I have had years of people wanting my attention and it is quite liberating when they don’t. I have just left my son’s bedroom where we watched The Lost Kingdom on Netflix. I have checked in with my family overseas. My brother is in the middle of online singing lessons.
It is a little cold today so I am wearing a hoodie with a “She Who Dares Wins” slogan on it. Ain’t that the truth this week?
So what are my things to be happy about this week? At the risk of repeating myself I am eating and sleeping so well. We have fish and chips tonight and last night we had bangers and mash with a Borlotti bean sauce. It was delicious. Other regular meals here include pork belly with cauliflower cheese and poached eggs on toast. We tried some new burgers with cheese this week and had lamb one night. I need to look for a great recipe with chicken thighs as I am taking my turn at cooking tomorrow night. I will probably use the slow cooker.
My brother and I sat down and made a meal plan for the week so that we can use up all the items in the freezer with a view to defrosting it. It is important to have little jobs to keep busy for me. I moved some furniture and cleaned up yesterday.
Our car broke down and got fixed and promptly broke down again. This is frustrating but it is a car. In these challenging times, we can get perspective on such things. Ditto with blocked toilets. People are losing their lives. If your families are alive and well we are blessed.
I get out for a walk with my son most days. He talks about video games and I listen. When we are indoors he rants against injustices in the world and that makes me proud. He will change society for the better in a big way in due course.
I got a niggling financial issue sorted today. Money worries are not fun so pleased to have got that resolved.
I had the most beautiful gold loafers sent to me to review. Over the top in a very good way and not the sort of thing I would buy for myself so felt like a real treat. I did treat myself to a blush pink hoodie from George at Asda. It is not my usual colour or style. I love how it covers my bottom. I also got shoes and a reversible black/brown belt ordered for my son.
Television wise I have enjoyed Normal People and Blood. You can take me checking out This Morning and soap operas as a given.
So overall this week has had a gentle pace with a surprise or two along the way. My big aim for the week ahead is to get more reading done.
