Well let us see today has been relatively productive, I woke up early and for some reason I decided that today was the day to change my curtains. The voile I had up was disgusting and my mum had brought me a replacement I could use last week so I finally got out the step ladders and took it and the curtains down. I put the voile in the sink and soaked it…man it was disgusting! The water was brown when I took it out to put it in the washing machine (be glad my hands were too wet to take a photo).
They got washed and I even managed to get them onto the line outside to dry, it’s a miracle no rain today!
I watched a cheesy film (She’s all that) and though it triggered off some memories of school yard bullies I kept myself busy while I watched it so it wasn’t as bad as it could have been. I was tidying my living room and filled a big bag with recycling waste…I really wish I had the energy every day to clean and keep on top of it!
I tried to have a nap this afternoon but Toby didn’t seem to like the idea and kept waking me up one way or another, I had a blinding headache and I wish he could understand me so I could explain to him that I really needed to sleep!
Ah well we nipped out for a quick walk around the block and the fresh air did help a little. I put some food on to cook and then tried to hoover the living room and Toby went nuts, he hates the vacuum and was whining and lunging at it trying to bite the nozzle. Even with his ‘help’ I managed to get the place vacuumed and all his fur that had accumulated into the bin.
The next task…..
I’ve made a start on it and I’ve filled one crate to take upstairs with washing that either didn’t need ironing or that I’ve managed to do
Now I just have to find places for it to go upstairs and finish the rest of the pile waiting to be done. I’ve had to take a break though as my muscles can only take so much. I need a taller ironing board either that or to shrink a few inches lol.
It’s a it late to keep going now and my head is saying it’s about time for bed. I might see if I can get a few more bits done while I’m watching the Lion King before I take the crate upstairs and actually sleep in my bed tonight (I’ve been on the sofa the past few days).
So before I manage to convince myself of all the negative things that have happened today I wanted to make sure that these small victories are recorded on here.
The first step up this particular mountain has been taken 🙂
Oh and have a silly video that just made me smile from the Lion King….gotta love Timon and Pumbaa.
