We’ve had a very quiet morning, my P.A came at 9 AM. She just did some housework for me, and she went to the store to get me some coffee, I had run out of it and god forbid I run out of coffee, that would not be good. I let her take Nitro out for a short walk, I didnt go. She finished up with me at 11:30, and then I started making my calls for work. I got them all done within an hour and a half. I had some lunch and now I am bored. I’ve just taken a shower, and am about to turn on the TV to see if there is anything good on it. I went outside to talk to my neighbour for a short while. A big bumble bee almost flew into my hair, so I quickly made an exit and went back inside. As you all know I am totally nervous of any flying insects, but especially wasps and bees. I talked to my mom and she’s doing some gardening. The rest of the day here is going to be spent reading, watching tv and cooking dinner. 3 days into lockdown and I am almost going insane. My niece Lauren should have been making her confirmation today, but that was cancelled until further notice. Oh well, it is what it is, not much we can do about any of it. We just have to hang on, and hold tight.
I did some self care stuff this afternoon. Now I feel so good and am glad I took time to myself!
I took advantage of having a bath at my parents house, and I took a nice, long bubble bath!
It was amazing! The water was so warm and I was able to totally relax in it. My muscles are feeling the benefits of it now!
Then I ate a nice dinner with my mom. We had steak, mashed potatos and broccoli and cauliflower mix. It was scrumptious. I put piri piri sauce on my steak and on my potatos, because I am totally addicted to it hahaha!
Now I think I’ll read for a while. I am reading a murder mystery by joanne fluke, its the first book in the Hannah swensen series, a chocolate chip cookie murder and its so good!
Have you done any self care today? Do share about it with me!
❤ 😀 xoxo
Its Friday! Yay! Hoping ya’ll are having a great day!
Mines been awesome so far!
I decided to go to my parents for the weekend! I was planning not to go, but then I got so bored at home, and I was missing my mom. So I decided to go and spend the weekend with them. I got here around 4:30. I spent a bit of time chatting and watching tv with my parents.
Its been 3 weeks since my moms been out of the house. My dad is doing the grocery shopping, and the other things that mom usually does. He’s not liking it but he’s doing it anyway.
I didnt get to take Nitro for a walk today! I was planning on taking him out, but then I knew I’d have to get a taxi home after grocery shopping, and I wasnt sure if they’d take him in the back seat since now with the coronavirus the new law is that you have to sit in the back of the taxi!
So I felt really guilty not taking him out!
My dad said if he feels up to it he’ll take him out in the morning, which will be great for him. My plan is to take him on tuesday again. For an hour long walk. It will do him good and do me good too!
Nothing planned this weekend, other than starting a new book! Dont know what I’ll read yet, but I have plenty to choose from. I’m not short on books!
Well enjoy the rest of friday!
Oh yeah, now the UK prime minister has coronavirus, and prince charles also has it as well!
Ireland has had 19 deaths now, we had 10 yesterday. We have over 1800 cases of the coronavirus here now.
I just bought some books. I love book shopping!
I bought the following books…
You can heal your life by louise L. Hay
Slave girl, by sarah forsight
Memoirs aren’t fairytales by marnie Mann
Saving jake, can remember the author
A stolen childhood by casey Watson
Cant wait to get reading them all!
I’ll be reading for a while Lol!
I’m going to make today a self care day!
I will start with a long hot soak in a nice warm bubble bath!
Then I will sit down with a mug of tea to read for a while.
After that I will eat a nice plate of chicken curry that mom prepared for our dinner!
Its a horrible day outside but I am nice and warm and snug and comfortable here in the warmth of the house!
And I am doing all I can to look after my mental health today!
Well guys, just heard on our news that from midnight tonight, all pubs here in ireland, and nightclubs, they are all closing their doors to the public until at least March 29th, but considering everything going on with the coronavirus, it will probably end up being much longer than that that they’ll be closed.
I know spain is in complete lockdown now, and france has closed all of its cafe’s, restaurants, and I think it wont be too long now before we’re in complete lockdown here in ireland.
Right now we have 129 cases of coronavirus here, which I know doesnt sound like a lot, but Ireland is a small country with a population of only 4 million. We’ve had two deaths from the virus so far. I also heard that the virus is in 140 countries worldwide now.
Its going to be a very quiet few weeks, I think. Since I’m going to be home a lot, I think I’ll get a lot of reading done, and will be watching lots of tv and lots of shows on netflix.
I am up and I am super anxious.
God I hate anxiety!
I actually went to bed early last night. I was feeling really edgy and I just felt bad so I took myself off to bed at 8:30.
I slept a little but I kept waking with nightmares. I kept trying to get back to sleep but eventually at 2 AM I gave up and I got back up again.
Now I’m just feeling so blah. Its just the pits, the anxiety is making me crazy. I could try a fenergan to try to make me go back to sleep but I have things to do today and I’d be very groggy from it so I refuse to take it. If I didnt have stuff to do I probably would but I cant because I have work later on this morning and I need to be able to function for that.
Maybe I’ll go get in the shower, the shower seems to soothe me.
Even nitro is fast asleep. I think he’s saying to me, mom, what are you doing up? Go back to bed and go back to sleep, he’s protesting hahaha.
I doubt I will go back to bed. I think I’ll start a new book. I finished the latest cathy glass one. It was so good. I love her books. Now I am going to start reading the hannah swensen series by Joanne fluke. I’ve never tried a murder mystery before but apparently these are really good. I hope I can get into them because there is about 26 books in the series so far so if I can it will be nice.
