‘We Have Heat’

The central heating and waste pipes are now set up. We’ve scraped and sweeped some more if the floors. We’ve 2 left to do. It’s tiring renovating a house. I’m glad I bought this house but I don’t want another renovation project. I’m happy to redecorate but I don’t want to go back to bare brick again.

We saw my dad and step mum which was lovely. I certainly need to see them more often then I do.

My new job starts tomorrow. I’m excited with a slight nervous but in calmer then I have been previously when starting a new job. Hopefully this continues into tomorrow.

‘I Love Listening and Dancing to Music’

I did better today with no telly Tuesday on Wednesday. I got some things done and also took some time to listen to music and dance around. A good way to learn to inhabit my body and get a bit of daily movement in there.

There’s a part of me that feels I don’t know what to do with myself even though I have the to-dos to get through. Like I’m missing out on my purpose. My purpose can’t be to watch telly day in and day out. Maybe once I’m on a roll with my new job and moved into our house. Until then I need to take it a day at a time, focus on myself and figure out some new loves.

My first, I figured out 10 days ago that I love having my nails done. Today, I’ve realised I love listening to powerful/positive music and dancing /signing around to it. I’m hoping along the way I’ll find out more about myself

Inspired by Marie Kondo

I am now in the start of my ‘Bloom’ year. It’s been a day of sorting. As a family we have got my grandparents living arrangements downstairs. We don’t know my Grandma’s reaction from tonight until tomorrow. Although my Grandad has mentioned it to her on a few occasions. We’re not 100% sure she’ll fully understand what it means.

I’ve spent most of the afternoon sorting our bedroom out. I was inspired by Marie Kondo show tidying up on Netflix. I loved her look and knew I wanted to watch it as soon as I knew it was coming. I ended up filling two charity bags to take and then 2 bags for the bin. I moved our clothes and used the Konmari methods of folding. It’s got me thinking on how I’d like our wardrobe to be in our house. Although a wardrobe is a long way off.

We’ve collected some bathroom items and kitchen items yesterday. We’ve a delivery in a few days time. I’m collecting some pipe work items tomorrow’s so when it comes to the weekend, hopefully my step dad is feeling better for the work to commence again.

As I’ve watched telly today, I forgot. I didn’t register it was a Tuesday. I’m going to be productive tomorrow to have a no telly Tuesday on a Wednesday. A part of me feels that today’s telly watching wasn’t a waste as I did get the decluttering / tidying done. Although, I feel I could do more. That’ll have to wait until tomorrow as it’s now too late. I’ve written myself a to-do list for tomorrow to try distract me from thinking about watching telly.

Life, Writing

We’ve spent the day finishing painting the kitchen. Well, it’s not 100% finished. It’s about 90%.

Spending this time painting its effecting parts of my body; my shoulders ached and my fingers went numb. While writing now, my arm feels heavy and painful. It’s like my body is telling me off. My lack of exercise is making things I want and need to do hard for me.

Thankfully, I’ve taken ‘Get a Massage’ from my Get In Touch With My Body list, and Dave has agreed to give me a massage where I am aching. I’ve had massages from a professional before but right now this isn’t something I can consider.

Having Dave do them I’m also working on our connection. I don’t think it’ll hurt with working on our bedroom pleasure as well as my sensual pleasure. We’re still a long way off. I’m proud of myself for working on things, usually, I put things off. Small Steps Ahead.

‘No Bad Energy’

My time as community care worker has now come to an end. A chapter of my life is closing, ready for a new one to start. Leading to new adventures ahead.

I feel today was a good day. I’ve no bad energy about it. I woke very early, at twenty to 5. After 20 minutes I gave up trying to fight my wife awakeness. I got up, scheduled some posts and created a new page; here I’ve put my yearly theme and goals together.

After I did my last hour of work, I got some washing done and started mileage. I finally after a week, walked the dogs, which meant I ticked off all 3 of my small action goals. I think an idea for me would be do choose 1 or 2 steps towards my quarterly goals to do each week to get me in the habit to mindfully achieve them.

I spent most of the day watching telly I had this on while doing the mileage. I find it a boring endless task, that needs doing. So I was trying to do it alongside something I enjoyed to make it more manageable. It does make it easier to do, I just don’t do it for long.

I’ve a plan for tomorrow; to paint the kitchen undercoat, measure the wall for the mantel shelf and start taking the cellar ceiling down. That’s 3 steps to make our house a home. I have to work on doing them in a day not taking a week to do it.

That is the vocab that I have learnt so far for describing people. To prevent this post from being a very long one filled with videos, I have spilt it up. The next post in the series is showing the vocab learnt in this post being put into sentences.
