Today was my most productive day off in a while! I always manage to be more productive when it’s a weekday and I’d normally be at work, I think because I need to keep myself busy and I guess it’s routine.
The day started off like normal – a cuddle and a coffee in bed with Reggie. Yes, he sleeps in our bed with us… it was never the plan but I wouldn’t have it any other way now… anyway, I digress.
After Dale went off to work, I got myself up and started a spring clean in the bedroom. I polished everywhere and then got the hoover out. I wanted to get these bits done before I had breakfast, because at least then I’ve achieved something… just in case I end up not doing much else. When I sit down to eat seems to be the downfall!
Anyway, the hoover was clogged up… Reggie sheds like crazy now that he’s an adult, so we get a lot of fur in the hoover. I pulled it apart to clean out and then couldn’t actually get it back together again… great. I spent probably the best part of an hour sorting that out, which put me in a bit of a bad mood! A tiny bit of dirt got stuck where it needed to click back together, basically. I had to use a hair pin to dig it out, so that was a pain!
After I sorted all of that, I stuck on a wax melt to test out. The strawberry ones I’ve made aren’t giving a very good scent throw, as I think I’ve gone for too much fragrance oil if I’m honest… I also really keep meaning to write about my candle and wax melting… so many blog post ideas and so little time!
Breakfast was golden syrup flavour porridge. Yum.
Then I loaded up the dishwasher and reorganised the cleaning cupboards. Even more hoovering, then wiping down surfaces.
Then I had a work email that really bothered me. By this point it was lunch time so I had a cuddle with Reggie for quite a while and let myself have a chill out.
I eventually got myself up again and tried out my wax melting pot, which was great! It’s been a fair few weeks since I made anything so it was really lovely to get back in to it. I have so many ideas in my head if what I want to do though and sometimes I find it too overwhelming, so then nothing gets done instead. I’m really working on not putting pressure on myself, especially as it’s just a fun hobby!
I made a couple of mango scented candles, as I’m still working on finding the right wick. I’ll let them cure for a while and then test them out. If only I could make money on all the candles I’ve made and tested out already!
We had fish for dinner which was nice and healthy too, strawberries for pudding. A chilled evening, watching Netflix. I’ll be sad to come out of isolation if I’m totally honest!
