Tasks achieved ...

I managed to get done my tasks i set for myself today, my kitchen sink this morning after dishes were washed, i admit i left some dishes from last night as dinner was late and i had run out of steam, never mind i soon had it clean and shining.
I put two loads of laundry in the wash and managed to get them line dried before the rain came!
I set about painting the skirting board in the main bathroom, it only took me an hour, really i should have done this awhile ago. Our main bathroom is a grey/white colour, it looks abit stark in the photo but in time when i add accessories i will put more colour into it, i just love this bathroom.
Talking of bathrooms we needed a shelving unit for our ensuite to hold towels etc etc, i managed to find one for £7.50, it needed a good scrub as it was dirty but look at it now!!
My mum will be so proud of me, i have actually learnt how to fold towels properly so they sit nicely, this is thanks to my fellow blogger Katy (thecountryblossom.com), i cannot stop folding now, flannels, tea towels, dish clothes! A closer look,
Our flannels are in the little white basket.
Yesterday while buying storage box's i bought these brillant plastic baskets, they come in a pack of three, i am using one of them to keep cleaning products for the bathrooms,
I am thankful for another productive day, i wont lie there was a couple of times i had to talk myself to get going, i am just thankful for another day with tasks in hand and no anxiety.x
 
 
 
 
 
 

Day 4...

This morning is day 4 without taking my antidepressants, last night was the first time i slept without taking an olanzapine (this is a tablet that helps you sleep). I slept through the night, but, tonight i shall take one as i think withdrawel from these one's should be done slowly, as i want to achieve my goals. So far i have been grateful that the tasks i have set myself i have been able to achieve.
I am truly taking each day at a time, but what keeps me strong is that i know in my mind that i do not want to take these tablets, i know i am ready to let them go, there is no fear attached with this, unlike past efforts.
I am thankful that i have the support of my doctor and my family.
This morning i shall make myself a cup of real coffee (  i only allow myself 1 cup a day), wash the breakfast dishes, put some laundry in the washing machine, later i hope to  paint my skirting board in the bathroom.
I will show pictures later today, i will ask God for strength as i go through my day, my life is very simple at the moment, it really goes from hour to hour.
I miss my mum, she gives me such strength and the wisest of words,but right now my sister needs her, they are on holiday in Italy, my sister was poorly before she went, suffering with exhaustion, hopfully she will come back rested.
I will update later, wishing you a lovely day x
