Day 78 – Mondayest Monday

My husband is the most loveliest husbands, I’m really lucky. After breaking down for the 15 time yesterday, he wrapped me in a blanket and put on Harry met Sally.

I slept better and woke up later than normal. Had cuddles with BB and then we met one of her little friends for an outdoors cuppa.

In her long nap, I met my Canadian friend for our last time on UK soil for a while as her visa has ended and she’s flying home the day of the operation. She didnt mention the text so neither did I and we passed a couple of hours chatting about everything and nothing. It was so weird, was just like a normal meet up, no big good bye. She loved her pressie I got her (cat tarot cards- she loves cats and mentioned she wanted tarot cards) and a funny card.

Came home to BB screaming and then did chores with her wrapped round my legs and played games.

I’m in such a funk it’s unreal. I’ve been so irritable and down its just not me. I feel the anxiety running through my veins like electricity and the merry go round of thoughts turning into the ghost train. I know its temporary and it will pass but it feel so hard in the middle of the storm. I even hung the washing out the machine, but had forgot to put the washing machine on. Got it in at the end of the day and realised it was the same smelly clothes.

How’s your Monday been?

  1. Oh I definitely have days like that: normally they start off with me making a cup of tea but forgetting to add the tea to the water 🤦🏽‍♀️ hope you feel better soon! ❤️


  2. When my mom was first unable to live by herself because of her worsening Alzheimer’s, I had to take care of her whole life, very suddenly. There was a time I started having a very serious anxiety attack about it all, and my blood pressure went through the roof. My stepmom had me watch some of the new Queer Eye episodes, and my blood pressure was almost normal afterwards. More rom coms may be in order, and keep them coming! I’m so sorry you are going through this. It is going to be ok, but I know it doesn’t feel like it right now. Big hugs! 🤗

  3. HA When Harry Met Sally is like my go to movie for when I’m not feeling well! Sorry you’re in such a funk. You sound like an amazing friend tho. Monday’s good here, the beginning of the week is always busier with so many kids here, plus it’s my baby’s 6th b-day, plus I have my Pandemic Mom Workout in the park this evening so…. all’s good.

      1. It is awesome – totally saves my sanity to have an hour OUT of the house where NO ONE is talking to me and getting a guided workout. I don’t have to think about anything! Wish I could share b-day pics… hubs is very private so I won’t on blog… you should fb friend me!

  4. I think it’s understandable you are in a funk, you have a lot going on right now. It’s so tough when you are in the middle of it. You will come out the other side and it will be ok. Sending love xxx

  5. Agree with everyone – you’ve got a lot to deal with – anxiety re op, and loss of your friend and that’s going to be hard without alcohol at first – all those emotions that aren’t being drowned out. Your hubby sounds lovely – you need lots of TLC – hope Tuesday is more peaceful for you! Xx💞💞


  6. Mondayest Mondays are the worst. It will
    pass, hang in there. The fact that you know you’re not yourself tells you that you’ll return to yourself at some point. 💕
