today - I have to rest and not punish myself for not doing the jobs that need doing

today - I have to rest and not punish myself for not doing the jobs that need doing

I was so pleased to help rid myself of some clutter and get some pennies in my purse on Sunday. My friend helped me do a car boot sale.

Of course I knew I would be tired yesterday, but didn't rest much in the day. Then, as the rain had stopped, and my daughter was groaing about the grass being so long she couldn't pick up the dog poo!!!! So I got the lawn mower out - and cut the grass. Unfortunately, i didn't stop there - and started weeding and cutting back lots of the overgrown and neglected bits in my garden. Pleased with my garden - but really probably over did it a bit. By 9pm I was beyond tired and slept out of exhaustion (I think).

Am suffering today, particularly as I have had a sinus cold/chesty cough for 10 days or so. Despite needing to do so much, I'm going to have a sofa day!!!
