A mixture of things I’ve ticked off the goals list in the past week and things I want to add to the new one 🙂
Well, I survived the motherships inspection yesterday. The house was nice and clean, clutter was gone and I felt good as she walked in the door… My husband later mentioned our house inspection happening later this week to which she looked at me and replied ‘oh so are you going to have a bit of a tidy up then?’….*dies inside* Aside from that it was actually a nice, relaxed visit so that’s something. Regardless she did motivate me to clean before her visit so that’s one less thing to do, I just need to keep on top of it and scrub a little harder.
I finally made the dentist appointment… It’s not for another week and a half but it’s scheduled… And that’s just the “cleaning”… They’re then going to schedule me for a bunch of follow up shit (urgh)
The Boxes are done…according to my husband… but I’ve just seen a few more hiding away so I’ll (we will) do them this week.

I will do an official post later this week … It’s on the goal list now so it’s got to be done lol.
Stuff for me:
I started off a nice little tan yesterday and god it feels nice. My grandad is Indian so I used to go really dark really quickly without having to spend much time in it. I would have tan lines for a whole year after… Now I’m older (and haven’t been out of the country in almost 5 years) my skin doesn’t react to it as well, its harder to get tanned or keep it so… This week I’m going to top my tan… SLOWLY (if British weather allows it) and enjoy being outside for a change. I may as well seeing as I’m work free for another week.
I had a phone date with my best friend last week. She had had a shit day and needed a rant so text telling me to get the baileys out and we set a time to talk. It was actually really nice to hear her problems (as bad as that sounds) what I mean is it’s nice to know that despite all this marriage shit going on with me she KNOWS that I’m still here for her. She knows I still have the capacity to take in her problems, listen and comfort her and that made me feel better… Knowing that someone out there still values me as a friend, as a confidant and she doesn’t see my marital issues as a benchmark for my judgement or advice.
On top of that it was nice to just have a conversation that wasn’t about me or him, it was nice to have a laugh (and a drink) … to socialise despite physical distance.This was our second “date” since September and it really does need to happen more often… So that’s one of my goals. Schedule another date.
I’m all over the place with these blogs (as you can probably tell) and Ive got so many comments to reply to so hopefully I’ll be back on track soon
