Feeling blue, but doing it anyway.


Today I feel a bit blue – not massively, but I am not feeling terribly motivated.  But I have got done the things that really needed doing – and that is a Positive Thing.  I had a shower, even though I didn’t think I could summon up the energy or motivation, and I felt better afterwards.  And N will not be getting home to find that tea hasn’t been cooked, and I am crashed out on the couch – I may be crashed on the couch, but tea is done, all bar cooking the cous cous, and that’s hardly a major task.  And the shopping list and menu for next week are done too – and N may faint when I tell him, but I have actually checked things, and looked in cupboards, rather than relying on my memory of what we have – which has proved to be less than reliable in the past.

I can’t say that I am looking forward to traipsing round the supermarket, but it does need to be done, and I shall buy myself a treat or two whilst I am there.  Because I deserve the odd treat.
