For food at work, I have been putting a portion of what ever i cook in the evening into a container and then taking it frozen into work. By the time lunch arrives, it's defrosted and I have a work microwave. I also keep a proper plate and knife and fork in my desk so I don't have to eat out of a container. It's slightly more interesting than a sandwich and cuts down on home waste
And for the sticky windows, nail polish remover or baby oil will strip the sticky bits. I put it on and let it sit for a bit and then use the edge of my bank card as a scraper
As for the sticky, I have some alcohol wipes that do the trick, so each time I find a bit more sticky somewhere that I had missed, I can get it cleaned up. It is more that I keep finding it even when I think I've got it all!
I've got an old bank card as my windscreen scraper. They're so handy.
I can't quite believe it is Monday again. Where do the weekends go?!
I came home and took a walk on the beach to help a bit more with my mental health, and then had tea at home rather than any more eating out.
I've booked the car in to have the CV joint repaired, as I have been getting really nervous that it's just going to seize and then I will need to be towed. I don't even know if that is a thing that actually happens, but the thought scares me.
I've also worked out a lower cost door handle solution. I kept looking at all the lovely period or reclaimed door mechanisms, and I was tallying about £50 per door as a minimum. I just can't justify that right now, but I've found a cheap similar option from a DIY supplier for £13.50 per door. It's still about £80 for 6 doors, but once I get them shutting I can look at getting a lodger. I just have to tell myself that spending the money is the right thing to do in the long run, even if it feels difficult in the short term.
Today I'm planning to swap the bedrooms over. I'll disassemble and move two beds, put the little wardrobe in the 3rd bedroom as a cat tower, and then work on all the little stuff. I also want to put up some shelves in two of the rooms. I'm planning to use scrap wood for this.
Also on the list for today is laundry, hoovering, washing up and a quick trip to Tesco for bread and porridge. I'd better get moving!
