This week I feel as though I have mostly hidden away and I don't know what I have done. Then I started making a list and realised that I had done more than I though. I just haven't kept a note of it or taken any photos to illustrate anything.
Some reading, going to my walking group - which isn't proving to be as chatty or welcoming as I hoped it would be, although I have spoken to some lovely people, but I am finding it hard to "get in" if you know what I mean. I also had a day at Basildon Park and - finally! - got awarded my 5 year service badge which is funny as I am now into my 7th year there. Better late than never though. I also reduced the height of a hedge in our garden. We went to London to the new Hockney exhibition and spent more time looking at the Turner's than the Hockney's. I will share more of that in some future Paint Monthly posts. A visit to the dentists which wasn't fun, a quote to replace our garden fence which was horrifyingly expensive but needs to be done before the fence actually collapses into next doors garden. A few other things too.
So I guess that I did more than I think, but somehow I still have a list of the things that I haven't done. Paperwork for the tax man, housework, visiting your five on Friday posts - an epic fail for which I am extremely sorry, updating/making my new bullet journaling that I want to do so that I can keep track of and see what I have actually done, knitting as my sock is still a WIP, writing blog posts, and oh, you know 1000 other things.
That all sounds really depressing doesn't it, but it is how my mind is right now. I am trying to travel hopefully though and hope that someday I will wake up and realise that I feel and am acting and being normal again without thinking about it. It will come, right?
As for Five On Friday, well, I had grand plans for some sort of summing up as next week will be my last week of hosting and I know that next week I am really busy so instead Five On Friday might just slide of the radar in a quiet kind of way. That is OK because it is heading off to pastures new so it doesn't need to worry about where it has been, it is off somewhere new! Oh, and in case you have missed the changes you can find out more here. Instead I will just remind you that next week is the last time I will be hosting and from the week after Tricky and Carly will be taking over as the new hosts.
For Five On Friday, because I have to have five things and because I have been looking back through my photos thinking that I need to do something with them, here are five random shots that I just like!
Thank you friends for bearing with me, I hope you have a great weekend, that you get to do fun things and that all is good in your life. Love someone close to you and remember, be just a little kinder than you need to be!
