And pull yourself together.
I would never say it to anyone else. But i can choose to say it to myself.
I started well.
Ran a mile. Not fast at all, but steadily. Was grateful for my gloves once I’d fished them out from behind the piano. And then got home, warded off the incipient headache with a large glass of water and enjoyed a shower.
After the shower, another huge step forward. I actually managed to completely detangle my hair. You may be beginning to understand how badly I’ve been letting things go. My hair tangles easily and sometimes it is all too easy to just keep shoving it up in a pony tail.
Then I went food shopping, on my own. Oh the joy of being able to dash around a supermarket and get what we need without endless debates or having to amuse the toddler. And it meant I could concentrate on keeping a running total: I was mere pence out at the till.
Came home and baked banana bread and made my own soup. Comfort food.
And then the day escaped me. I packaged up the Ebay parcels but ran out of time before swimming to post them. We were in plenty of time for Big’s swim session, but because I’d changed the routine by wimping out of cooking yesterday we didn’t get fish and chips tonight. So we came home earlier to have chance to cook and that meant the evening went pear shaped in the grand way.
I enjoyed my dinner, and so did the smaller children.
Tomorrow is another day. It will start with Ebay parcel posting.
