If we were having coffee in my living room which is a bit upside down as I’m taking time out of doing chores to have coffee with you lovelies, I’d tell you that this weeks weather in Wales has been very weird. Yesterday, for instance, while going to my mums house to set up her Amazon Fire TV stick it was freezing and snowing. About an hour or so later, I went to collect my daughter from school and it was sunny and warm, too warm for the winter coat I was wearing. It reminded me of myself a lot, how my day can change in an instant.
I’ve been keeping myself busy this week. I’m still not feeling too great, but I am managing. I am happy that, right now, self care is working. The beginning of the week was mostly spent making friendship bracelets. My daughter had asked me how to make them, so I ended up showing her, and it reminded me how much making bracelets helped me in the past. I made loads of them when I was in ED recovery, I found it helped me to sit still when I had that horrible anxious energy that makes me want to pace endlessly around my flat. I made a penguin bracelet for my friend, and a teddy bracelet for my daughter.
They are so cute! My daughter was really pleased with the teddy bracelet and hasn’t taken it off since I gave it to her. I sent the penguin bracelet to my friend, and she was super happy, so that made me happy and cheered me up!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’ve been playing Sims 4 this week and I wrote a post about the Sims. I wrote about my sim family here. I find the Sims is the best game to play when I don’t feel well, because it kills time more effectively than any other game. I really dislike the phrase “Killing time”, because time is such a precious entity, it’s finite and I hate the thought of trying to make it pass quicker than it normally does, but when I’m ill, I know the best thing I can do is wait it out, so if I can make that time pass quicker, or do something productive with it, it feels as though I’m getting better faster.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I bought myself a BB8 funko pop to cheer myself up and I was super happy when it arrived. Here is BB8 and Rey Lego minifigure. How adorable!
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that my daughter actually had an “awesome” week at school. I can’t remember the last time that happened, bless her. A few months ago, she won a competition and had her 100 word story featured in a book, so she was super excited when the finished published book finally arrived at school and she could bring it home this week. She said how much she loves being published, and was very proud of herself, and obviously, I was super proud of her too. She also came home with certificates for being a good learner and about 5 stickers for being good. We celebrated last night watching her choice of TV shows on Netflix and ate pizza from Domino’s.
She always works so hard, and her school is great at rewarding the kids that are consistently good. When I was in school, the consistently good kids got nothing, however, the naughty, badly behaved kids were praised massively if they occasionally behaved. I never understood why they couldn’t reward both.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I started watching Homeland on Netflix, and I am enjoying it so far. It’s a little annoying in places, but overall it’s good to watch.
I hope you’ve all had a great week. I best get back to the weekend chores of washing, ironing and general tidying up while my daughter is at the farm with my mum.
