I know I've spoken recently about when my house was a mess and that the stuff I hoarded was all about memories and remembering all the details. I think that's why I don't post too many photographs and I don't really talk too much about our big days out. I think it's because it's important for me not to fixate on them and that it's OK for someone else to jog my memory, rather than hang on to everything all the time. So the junk drawer can be important here, because I wouldn't talk about it out there. Here is different to out there in the real world. If I spoke about all this stuff there then I wouldn't need to be here would I?
So what has the normality brought about this week?
I cooked and ate something new, a butterbean goulash-type thing. We bought this paste before Christmas and I thought I'd better try it out. Yummy, but I used a little too much of the paste so it was hot hot hot!
I tried something old
An exercise DVD from years and years ago. I've done it three times this week and I can tell the difference already. I do look a bit less flabby and this morning I didn't have to flop out on the floor at the end!
Spurred on by this post I remembered I received this as a gift
Now we have an activity for Saturday afternoon and I won't have to buy any soap for the rest of the year with a bit of luck.
Finally, previous ploddy days have brought about this
A daff I can't even remember planting! Yes, raking is also on the list for the weekend. That afternoon some time last year is paying off as we have leaves and flowers poking their little heads out all over the place. So I suppose the things I don't notice the benefits of now are things that can be a reward in the future.
