I worked 10 hours today. It was a pretty tiring day and I got home feeling drained and with a lot on my mind. All I really wanted to do was flop down in my pyjamas and do.....well not a lot really!
I am in the position where I have to work. Dh and I both have to work for us to get by. But I don't want my job to be my life. I don't want to get in every night after work and do not very much until I go to bed then get up the next day to go to work. And usually I do enjoy making the best of my evenings but today I just wanted to do ....well.....nothing.
But Dh was out and there was things that needed doing. Dh and I live in a shoe box so the second things start getting cluttered or jobs start piling up it is really obvious and I can't relax in a messy house. So I did let myself change into my pyjamas, but I didn't let myself flop. I made poached egg on toast and grilled cherry tomatoes for dinner (I would have taken a photo but it accidentally got eaten before I had chance) I did the washing up, tidied the kitchen, put a load of washing on and then tackled the big pile of ironing that had been taunting me for days. I then hoovered everywhere and had a shower which was thankfully uneventful, not like the other night when I reached for the shampoo only to be accosted by a GIANT spider running up the shower curtain. I can't remember ever leaping out the shower so quickly and sprinting down the hall. I think dh thought I was being attacked! And was then amused he was on glass and coaster duty while I hovered dripping water everywhere with a towel.
Once all the jobs were done I let myself plop down and am now sat doing not a lot, just like I wanted to, but guilt free as all jobs are now done :)
