This week I've been off kilter. My skin was terrible and it brought me down. Days didn't go to plan and I didn't feel like I'd done enough work. I missed a lecture that would have benefited me greatly (luckily I got hold of a recording)and by Saturday I was in a permanent grump. I felt rubbish and what made it worse was knowing I was bring Adams mood down too. But when you have a bad day there's not a lot that can swing it right back round.
Here is me with an obscene amount of makeup on in my new favourite dress from Topshop that I shrunk a little bit which didn't do my mood any favours.
We wandered to the little highstreet near our area to look around the chairty shops.
I couldn't work out if these were serious or not.
Emailed this to my dad and he promptly replied asking the price.
Adam tried a Fiji apple, which he bought just for the pink foam protection. And I tried to think of a use for this naughty plate. It was £5 so I didn't indulge but I might go back for it.
That night my mood didnt get much better. Me and Adam built a den outside and chilled in the not too freezing cold with a cup of tea before going in and watching some Fresh Meat and falling asleep, leaving my horrible week behind me.
Sunday morning I woke up to blue sky and the sun bathing me in glorious light and Vitamin D. I peeled myself out of bed and wandered down stairs to make some breakfast. In the fridge I found the eggs my mum had brought me from our chickens at home. And tucked in the plastic bag from our trip yesterday was a roll of paper hiding away two bunches of daffodils I had bought from the green grocers that I had forgotten all about ! While the eggs were boiling I filled up two jars with water to hold my daffs. I admired them all through our breakfast in bed. I felt like the last week had just been one long whole day and that finally I'd had a goods night sleep and left it behind me.
We got up and made the most of sunshine. Adam waterproofed our den, I made us a tasty healthy lunch and then I wandered to Sainsburys to get our weekly shop done. On the walk home I went through the play park that's been empty for months but with the sun shining every child and they're scooter were out. I was feeling good with my shopping bags full of green leafy food and so many people out laughing and chattering.
It remined me of my favourtie scene in Amelie.
I felt like the blind man and that someone had shaken me awake and made me see the positives over the negatives again. It's funny how a bad mood can plague you for days but suddenly it'll be gone. It always makes me appreciate the good days more. I try and get as much as possible done. Like writing positive blog posts, buying lots of healthy food, ticking things off my list that have been there all week and hanging out in a den whatsapping my two best friends in London with Twin Peaks playing in the background.
How did you spend your sunday? What can change your mood around? DO you ever feel like a blind man?
