    Worked yesterday and it was a happy day,we either had no patients or a group arrived at the same time, it was also really hot so I felt irritable all day. 

    Today I had a lie in because I was shattered then I went to DD1s house to celebrate DGS1s fourth birthday 😊the weather forecast said rain and thunder but it just started off cloudy and gradually got warmer and sunnier as the afternoon went on. We had a lovely time and all the kids enjoyed the pool and garden games 😊

    I came home and took B for her evening walk and it chucked it down so we got soaked,I was hoping for a thunder storm last night but we didn't get one 

    Im off to bed shortly because I am tired and I have to get up at 6 for work 😟 I'm on a long day tomorrow so will belong to the NHS for 12.5 hours then I have Monday and Tuesday off 🎉🎉🎉 I will probably be doing some more painting plus I am going to my new slimming world meeting on Monday evening so there's lots going on

    Love your choice of laminate , I had some at my previous address a little like it. It was hard wearing and easy to keep clean. It will all be lovely if you get the hall painted as well. Glad you have found a handy man so worthwhile knowing a reputable tradesman . Hope you are having a good Sunday .

    That is a cheap quote from the handyman. If he does a good job he will be a gem. Mine is quite pricey, but reliable. And always booked up well in advance now.

    Work was brutally busy and we were understaffed so not a good shift, I was glad to get home. My slimming world meeting went well and they are a nice group, the consultant is lovely 😊

    Thank you I'm really happy with my choice now and can't wait to get it all done, Sunday was a day I could have done without hit onwards and upwards 😀

    He is only charging me for a part day because the jobs I have for him won't take long at all. I hope he is good because then I can use him again, I've seen some photos of his work and he seems to know what he is doing

    So yesterday at work was horrible, it's so busy at the moment and we are very under staffed due to people self isolating etc etc. We have a few patients requiring one to one supervision at meal times and it's very time consuming. Not much stocking up of supplies has been done either so I was running round doing that. I could hardly walk when I left in the evening, I came home had a shower and went straight to bed with a big dose of painkillers. I'm still not great today but powering through anyway.

    Today I had to go and buy more paint for the hallway. I've gone for a slightly paler colour out there because it has to go up over the stairs and upstairs landing, there are no windows on my upstairs landing so I want a lighter colour, I've gone for one called Timeless, it's the same colour as I used in DD2s bedroom so an off white, it should look nice 😊

    Slimming world went well, it's a nice group with a nice consultant, I bought a 6 week count down and have 16.5lbs to lose to get back to my goal weight. I also bought a copy of the magazine and it's got some lovely recipes in it that I think I will like. I went shopping today and bought fruit for snacks so I'm off to a good start 😀
