OK - so I told a porky yesterday - I didn't sit down with Dr Phil - instead I sat down with a packet of Hobnobs and managed to polish a fair number of them off in one sitting. My intentions of having a breakfast this morning which would see me through to lunch time was blown out of the water by the self same packet of Hobnobs (which fortunately - or unfortunately - depending on how you look at it) are still not finished.
Yesterday there was a drama in the family - nothing much - but a drama none the less and so lots of tears (both mine and K's) which did lead to me giving her a hot stone treatment last night. I don't know how much she enjoyed the actual treatment (although how anyone could not enjoy a hot stone massage is really beyond me !!!) - but at the end she said her favourite parts were the hand and foot massage that I gave her !!!!!!
Today I woke up really wanting to get my walking shoes on and get out there - it hasn't stopped raining since before midnight - except for one or two short spells of about 10-15 mins. I am in a bad mood. I want to walk. I want to exercise. I want to get out there. Instead I am stuck in the house. Not really wanting to do anything but feeling guilty because I am not doing anything. I did join FLYLady - my kitchen sink is shiny and sparkly and my kitchen is neat and tidy. This is not too unusual because with clients in and out I always try to make sure that that area of the house is reasonably respectable so they don't think I am a complete and utter slob. But I was glad of the prompting that came from reading Bri and M's blogs that got me into the kitchen this morning.
I did get changed out of my PJ's and 'fix my hair' - I draw the line at wearing make-up when I am at home - it is enough of a hassle to put it on if I am going out - never going to happen if I am just fluffing around at home !!!!
I really wanted to walk today because today was the day I was going to start delivering my advertising brochures - I need the business - I need paying clients - I need to generate some income now that I don't have a day job. As it is I am going to have to try to jiggle appointments so that I can get more packing time at Coles. How come I was so positive about not working last week and earlier this week and today it's like "What the hell have I done?" Can I blame the weather ? I am sure that if it was sunny and I was out in the garden doing the weeding I wouldn't feel like this at all - even though I hate weeding !!!!!
OK - I am off with Dr Phil (for real this time) - I will be back later to tell you how I went.
