Trying to focus on the positive.

So I'm trying to focus on the positive and on what I am managing to achieve.

We do have clean clothes though getting them dry without a tumble dryer is proving interesting. I do have a heated airer that I use overnight but it only holds about half a washing load.

I cook a meal from scratch every night two weeks out of three, when hubby is on lates he doesn't want a cooked meal after ten at night.

I cleared and cleaned the kitchen today, but didn't manage to tidy the living room. My L&M suggested some Afternoon Delight, much better than housework and greatly appreciated as he's still not feel too good himself.

I am also managing some crochet most days, even if just half an hour.

Focusing on the positive sounds just fine to me and I really hope it helps.
Big hugs for you-x-

I have lived without a dryer for almost 30 years, raising three sons with cloth diapers etc and in a climate that has permanent snow from October to May.

What a day

What a day. I left home at 7 this morning, taking CHS to work, then I dropped one of the grandchildren at school. From there I went to the D...
