Sunny and positive, though tired today.


First positive thing – I slept quite well last night.  What is particularly positive is that I fell asleep pretty quickly – that is where I struggle the most with sleep.  I also managed to get up at 7.50 this morning, in good time to drive No3 son to his early dental appointment, and since getting home, I have done two loads of washing (my bedding), have one lot in the tumble dryer and the second load waiting to go in, and I have cleared the fridge of all the outdated and manky stuff that was in there, ready for the Tesco delivery this morning.  That delivery is all put away, so that’s another thing achieved.

Yesterday was pretty positive too.  The kitchen stayed clean and tidy, and I even swept the floor again, and I made a very tasty beef casserole for tea.  My Positive Thing for the day was making perfect dumplings to go with the casserole.  Other than using self-raising flour, I don’t know what I did differently, but for the first time in ages, I produced light, fluffy dumplings, rather than leaden lumps.  Perhaps I should have taken a picture!
