Well, that was an interesting day.
I’ve had an absolute ‘mare of a weekend! There didn’t seem to be anything in particular going wrong but I was just depressed through the whole of it; with four children in the house that was a recipe for emotional disaster for me. Monday rolled around and it felt like a potential turning point; this was the moment when my week could either continue downhill or start climbing back up towards some level of emotional stability.
The first thing I did on Monday to influence this was eat a banana before I left the house. My commutes last week had been hard, I was running on empty all the way in and by the end of the week I was shattered. The difference in my commute after a banana was impressive and I got into work to have my breakfast feeling energised rather than drained.
The second thing was the arrival of my Teapigs Matcha kit, about which I will write a full post soon. I’m not sure if it’s coincidental timing with other things falling into place but, after drinking a matcha shot at lunchtime, my afternoon was so much easier than it would normally be.
A pleasant ride home was followed by Board Games Monday with my boys when we played Lost Valley of the Dinosaurs, a game which used to belong to my brother when we were the age my boys are now.
The little guy won this one, being the first to get two gold coins from the temple out of the valley, which made for a nice, quiet evening!
An excellent start to the new week; things may be starting to look up for me.
