Motivation Muesday

I am now a member :)

I am now a member ๐Ÿ™‚

Well…its not Monday anymore… but screw it.
I’ve had a really up and down week (or more) but I managed to tick some of my goals off. Actually writing these posts – as unmotivated as I feel at the time really does help because its so easy to forget what I HAVE achieved during a shitty week so writing them down is kind of like an ‘oh yeah’ moment where you feel a little better afterwards ๐Ÿ™‚

Last week I finished one of the books I was reading so one aim for the next week is to review it on here and finally do an Amazon review as promised. I am now starting the next one and so far I like it (even though I’m only a few pages in lol) I’m waiting for a time where I can sit and read a good chunk at my leisure rather than squeezing bits in here and there and only half paying attention so hopefully I’ll get to do that soon ๐Ÿ™‚

I made my counselling appointment with the newbie…actually I went one step further and had a full blown session with her there and then…I survived and it was actually good to be surprised with it. It meant I didnโ€™t have the time to fret about it beforehand (or chicken out and cancel) I will write about that more later on…regardless I like her and have the next one booked in the next week or so ๐Ÿ™‚

I got paid...I went shopping…I practically forced myself to BUY something to wear as for the first hour or so I wandered around picking things up and then convincing myself I didnโ€™t need or want them and leaving empty handed. I’m so not used to treating myself lol but I ended up with a sweet dress, some practical stuff and a bunch of stuff for other people lol. I still have some set aside for hubbys birthday AND more just ‘in the account’ Saying that its been less than a week ha ha but it feels nice to be able to run out for some milk without counting the pennies and checking the account so I think I’ll be able to curb my spending and stick to what I need- we shall see.

Attempt 1

Attempt 1

Attempt 2

Attempt 2

Also I have been practicing baking and decorating cakes in preparation for his birthday cake. I started with one layer of basic marble cake so it’s a bit flat lol but I just wanted to try icing it… my first attempt was terrible lol HOWEVER I didnโ€™t have a rolling pin so… whatโ€™s that saying about blaming their tools? It tasted bloody amazing though!

The second attempt I played with cherries which actually dried the cake out a bit (as did putting it in the fridge) but the decorating improved a bit. Next time I’m going to do 2 layers (stacked) with cream and jam in the middle…mmmmm wish me luck lol

    I had a feeling that something was up. Just a niggle, but glad you got through it OK anyway.
    The cake icing looks great from where I am sitting, so well done for that.
    At least the weather was nice last Sunday!!
    As ever, Pete. X

      Vinyl singles.
      Research carefully. Some are worth reasonable amounts, up to ยฃ!0 each; perhaps a lot more for something rare. Most are sold for around ยฃ1. I would Ebay anything reasonably desirable, and then ‘job lot’ the rest in themed batches, sold either in free paper adverts, cards in shops, or as bulk boxes on Ebay. Music Magpie don’t sell them but Amazon do, so you could register as a marketplace trader, and stick them on there. I don’t really know what that involves. As a last resort, try going to an old-fashioned music/record shop ( there is one in Dereham) and they may make you an offer for the lot. X

        OOOH Thanks Pete, yes I’ve done a few searches and found that some are indeed rather desireable in some places. Its just sorting through them all that will take the time xB
