Well the first part of it wasn’t. I woke up this morning to a very quiet flat and my first thought was shit, I am late picking monkey up from school.
My reasoning, I didn’t get to sleep till very late, my partner is on a late shift, so doesn’t start work till 3pm. If he wasn’t here that means its after 2pm. It gave me a massive start and woke me up, only to hear my partner walk through the door, having just done the school run.
I could of tried going back to sleep, but am trying to sort my sleep pattern so forced myself up and had a coffee.
Feeling a bit more awake, I did the washing up, put the clothes away, jumped into the shower and then went for a walk round the block. Its only a 10 minute walk, but this is part and process of me getting better with my anxiety as time goes on, hopefully it will be a bit easier and I will be able to get further and further away.
I then cleaned the flat, opened all the windows to let some fresh air in, put a new load of washing on and sat down. I am going to have a look at my emails and then go back to my job of sorting Lego, which is becoming the worlds most annoying job.
I am making subtle hints to my partner about making me lunch, but his psoriasis is playing up on his hands, so much so he can’t bend them without it hurting, this means there is a chance I may have to move and do us both something for lunch.
This is our last week of the month for food, which normally ends up with us using everything we can up in weird and wonderful ways. I really want to empty the freezer so I can defrost it tomorrow. We only really have frozen veg in there, but I need to leave enough for dinner tomorrow. The fridge is basically empty apart from the basics, so its a good time to do it before we get our shopping in over Thursday and Friday.
All in all a good morning so far, lets see how this afternoon goes.
