Rock Bottom

I definitely hit rock bottom earlier this month.

I'll let you into a little secret. I'm absolutely rubbish at housework,... I can just about maintain a clean house, but if something happens and it gets untidy I can't seem to claw myself back.. and it got more and more untidy and I just buried my head in the sand like a detritus-ostritch..

Thankfully I have friends who care enough to tell me and to help me, and honestly I've been so over-whelmed by the love. Things are making great strides forwards.

I also got in touch with my landlord who will be removing my (useless) water tank. They were supposed to be removed when the boilers were installed, but yet again, it didn't happen with my flat (I was also missing half my kitchen when I moved in).... but yes, 5 1/2 years later my case has been heard, and byebye water tank and HELLO STORAGE CUPBOARD. OH MY GOSH WHAT WILL I DO WITH THAT SPACE

I know fullwell what I'll do. It'll be the cupboard for the vacuum cleaner/ironing board/mop/brooms etc.. and shelved from waist high so I have somewhere to put bedding that isn't the bottom of my chest of drawers.

Hitting rock bottom and being honest has been so cathartic and exhausting though, I'm knackered and running 99% on caffeine lately.

I love food, but I hate my lack of kitchen motivation lately.

What are your favourite things to cook?

That time I forgot I had a blog

Sorry, June was quiet wasn't it?

I'm 29 now. YAY I'm getting so old! I have les than a year of my 20s left and this thrills me. I don't worry about the numbers growing. I'm just that I'm around still.

This is just a quick one...

5 things I love right now.

1. Raspberry Syrup. I pick it up from a Polish store in Burgess Hill (West Sussex) and I add it to milk for milkshakes and to lemonade for a particularly sweet treat.

2. my friends... I was thoroughly spoilt rotten for my birthday. I have some lovely new purple nail varnish that I want to wear forever and ever amen.

3. Family. As always my Lewes lot (and the surrounding areas of course) have been amazing.

4. Coffee. I am a caffeine addict, and coffee keeps me nice.

5. Soap Operas... Pobol Y Cwm, River City, Goede Tijden Slechte Tijden, Hollyoaks. They are my guilty pleasures (just without the guilt)
