My mind is on overdrive, wanting to get things organised. Not really the best before going to bed.

I found out where I’m gonna be based until April. This placement might also be permanent as the ward wants a full permanent position filled. I’m off for a chat with my current line manager to find out more in a few days.

The windows and doors are happening tomorrow, another task to be ticked off the list. We’re having a very good month on ticking things off for the house. Things seem to be coming together.

We’ve had a good weekend of it at the house. Heating is on. Pipes for the shower have been connected. We’ve been fixing the plasterers mess but we’re unable to complete today due to someone not turning up. So, we ended up going to the cinema. I dried at the trailers, set me up good for the film.

We also have friends time last night and time with family this evening. I want to get the house sorted but I was glad for a rest. I’m tired and with just only being the first week of a new job I don’t want to exhaust myself.

I’ve been thinking of the wedding this evening too. Having another look at the guest list and potential food as the main meal. I’m trying to go with the majority as not to waste too much food or money.

‘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.

More work on the house happened. My body is feeling it from the work yesterday, making today harder then it should be. Half of the radiators are on and the first fix for the plumbing has been done. We’re back again tomorrow. I’ve been able to scrap and sweep some more floors.

The best thing about tomorrow is that I get to spend time with my dad and step mum.

It’s been a long day at the house. I finished painting the kitchen, the ceiling in the cellar came down and we started scraping and sweeping the floors. We had 2 separate deliveries which meant that I was there from 8am until 18:30pm as one didn’t give me a short time frame and the second was late after their last time call.

Let’s just say my feet didn’t like it and I had to wait 11 hours before I could use the toilet. I cannot wait until it’s installed in our house.

The good thing is two more home tasks got completed thanks again to B. She is amazing and worked through a cold. We’re back to the house tomorrow. Hopefully a couple more will get ticked off.

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.

‘Words can Hurt’

My friend and I painted the undercoat for the kitchen. It took us 4 hours to complete the whole 9 foot high walls and ceilings. I was proud of what we had done.

But that was overshadowed of feeling put down by my mum when I got home. The simple words of ‘is that it’ hurt me.

Getting shot down by what I’ve done as its not good enough for someone else. I get excited by buying something for the house and it’s not the priority.

When Dave said he missed the bus home I said I’d come to get him. I felt safe to cry in the car. On the way back he didn’t ask me what was wrong. He didn’t ask until we were home when I’m guessing he noticed something was wrong. He quickly redeemed himself by saying the right things and giving me hugs.

Words can hurt, more so when said a certain way.
