Well I For One Shall Be Glad Of The Rest…

Good morning world and thanks for tuning in to another day here on Planet Magnet.

What a crazy several days that has been.

I haven’t known if I was coming or going.

I have been that busy that I have forgotten the most simplest of things like friends names or the correct words to use when I have been writing my posts (no change there then I hear you say…!) It is like I have been faced with a complete blank and have not know how to overcome it.

To that end I am determined that this shall not happen again and that I shall be better organised and not take on too much at one go. I shall endeavour to rest properly and recharge my batteries satisfactorily each night that I might at least be able to spell ver words wot I righted dahn…

A bit of streamlining will come in handy and learning to say NO is a thing I have often wanted to be able to do, so maybe I may start trying that on and seeing if it suits me every now and then. I know there is no magic wand to do this, all it requires is for me not to be a pleaser and to consider myself before I start saying yes left right and centre.

Maybe this could come after a little break from doing things for a few days. Today could be the last day when I feel that I have to fudge about sorting other peoples problems out and might be able to start with my own such as wrapping presents on time so that I can take them to my Sons house this morning before taking him and my Grandson to lunch.

However, the reality is I shall be rushing around and shall no doubt be late leaving to see my boy because at the last minute I decided that I had better sort something for someone believing incorrectlyย that I can once again fit a quart of time into a pint pot.
Don’t get me wrong, I still love to help and there are those whom helping gives me as much joy doing it as it does them receiving my help, but some jobs are a little long in the tooth and a little repetitive so tend to bore as time goes by.

So today will see me in the final throes of wrapping, delivering, walking, feeding, shopping and generally all round helping out and I plan that from tomorrow I shall be most definitely in a state of relaxation and not actively seeking work (even though I shall no doubt still be be on call to some for part of my time… ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

I trust you have all of your plans made and everything tied up into a nice bow because remember, it’s just two more shopping days till…..

‘Till tomorrow,

Stay out of the fridge…..

    Learning to say “no” without apology is a tricky thing to master. He’s the great part about it though (and take this from a reformed “yes”-girl. My friends and family know when I offer to do something or agree to do something it’s because I really want to. It’s not out of guilt, obligation or the fact that I feel bad they need help. I say “yes” because I really want to help. It goes back to that authentic life that I’ve mentioned a few times – mostly because I have to remind myself of that too. Luckily I’ve learned to master the art of saying “no” without apology over the last 10 years but somehow I’ve yet to master it when it comes to my Mom. Softie when it comes to my parents I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, I hope you can take time for yourself to relax, enjoy time with your son and just spend the holidays feeling proud of all you have accomplished and all you have yet to tackle!

      I like this comment.
      Thank you Janell.
      I shall get there for sure and will be very much like you, doing things because I really want to do them and not because I feel obliged. I suppose I must work out what that difference feels like to put into practise but I will get there!
      Today I have finished running around and my son has just said he will come over to me so I can now officially relax from this moment forth….!
      Oh happy days…..
      Have a great Christmas Janell and enjoy the festivities.

    After a year of massive ups and downs, I’m looking forward to a few days of doing as little as it’s possible to do while still keep ourselves and the animals fed and comfortable. :

    Have a peaceful Christmas. ๐Ÿ™‚
