thanks @ladybird777 yes that was me too, juggling the overdraft and shuffling things around all the time. I hope you can find a way forward too x
Excellent loss this week your so close to losing a stone. Seems like you have a busy day ahead.Morning all well my scales have shown me 2lb's down so I'm now 12.5lb's down from when I started woohoo. I measured too as I haven't done for a while but I can't actually remember what my last measurements were so I'd need to search back, but for now I'm 43, 36, 48. I think bust and hips are probably the same but waist is down, but I don't trust my memory 100%
Son is off to school and I'm just back, having a quick cuppa, then I'm adding a few more things to the car for the skip run, then go empty it at the recycle centre. Stepping forward slowly.
Plan after skip run is to take the dog for walkies, then do a bit more tidying, perhaps a teeny bit sewing and then I've a friend popping round to sit in garden for a cuppa at 1400.
Don't be too hard on yourself I am sure you haven't derailed your efforts. Working nights are hard I know from experience.I caved and ate a bourbon last night whoops lol, but 2 night out of 3 I didn't so I'm getting better I slept longer than usual today as well. I seem to lose the days and nights on my run of nights, hardly anything gets done other than feeding the kids most days. Good thing though is once this run is over I'm back to only doing 5 on and 9 off, and obviously the days off are a great compensation for me.
I just need to get my bum in gear and turn my mind to creativity properly on my time off which was always the original plan. My craft room is ready to go still a bit of sorting needing done but it's all set up for sewing and painting and a clear table for my laptop, also plan to get a desktop soon for this space which will hopefully inspire my writing. I wrote one story of a planned trilogy a number of years ago and have several people on at me periodically because they want to know what happens next lol. The first one isn't especially well written though - I plan to revisit it properly and rewrite the whole trilogy together and then publish it as a 3 in1. I have a bunch of poetry I want to release as well. It's so easy to self publish on amazon.
I can certainly feel the fire of creativity returning more to me, perhaps this crazy chilli is ready to finally really rise from the ashes of the past few years..
