Feeling drained, anxious, sad and exhausted today. But so far I have managed to

Get out of bed, feed the children and pets

Have a bath and get the DCs washed and dressed

Put a wash on

Sat outside for a bit having a cuppa and listened to the birds

My mental health is shot to pieces so I'm celebrating the very small wins today.

ParkheadParadise Sat 16-May-20 12:24:19

Got up.

I didn't need to ask dh what day it was.

Thighmageddon Sat 16-May-20 12:24:57

This is the attitude me and dd have right now, we're happy with the small wins.

Today I've got dressed in jeans rather than sports leggings or joggers.

I've brushed my hair, I keep not bothering to brush it.

Got up, made toast and 2 cups of tea. Will wash up before have a shower.

ChimpyChops Sat 16-May-20 12:25:52

Made the boys my sausage and bacon 'mcmuffins'.
They love them. I'm no good at the home schooling or anything else tbh but this makes them smile.

A shower

NuffSaidSam Sat 16-May-20 12:30:20

I'm up and somewhat dressed.

I've managed to read about four pages of an actual book, in between my reading of Mumsnet and Twitter.

I've put some clean laundry away.

Put the washing on
Emptied all the bins in the house
Showered and dressed (not face and hair as yet)
Hoovered the hall and sorted the cat litter tray.

Is it wine time yet?

ClientQ Sat 16-May-20 12:34:51

Got up, dressed and put makeup on

Otterses Sat 16-May-20 12:39:26

I built a den! It's huge and fabulous and full of pillows and furry throws and I plan to still be sitting in it when DS goes to bed tonight grin

DS and I are washed and dressed too. Don't plan on achieving much else today.

ProseccoBubbleFantasies Sat 16-May-20 12:40:16

Had a lie in. First genuine good night's sleep in weeks.
Feels like a win

popcorndiva Sat 16-May-20 12:41:07

Finally gone through the wrapping from Christmas to sort what can be recycled. It's been sitting in a bag in the spare room since then.

Chanel05 Sat 16-May-20 12:41:24

Put up some pictures on the wall with command strips. It's been on my to-do-list for months.

Sparklingbrook Sat 16-May-20 12:41:31

@ClientQ I have been asked on another thread if I wear make up because of vanity. sad grin

Flippinfurloughed Sat 16-May-20 12:45:37

Put make up on too #teamvanity grin

Been proper grumpy so went for a walk and have done my 8k steps for the day. Going to sit on my bum and eat crisps now.

Thighmageddon Sat 16-May-20 12:47:40

I put makeup on last week, first time in weeks. I kept looking in the mirror and saying "hello gorgeous" grin

I am quite vain though.

Nacknick Sat 16-May-20 12:48:08

Tidied the butter compartment in the fridge drawer.

Well you did say "no matter how small" 😂

FuckThisWind Sat 16-May-20 12:48:38

My Dad gave me loads of strawberry plants, so I had the ingenious idea of making a hanging planter from a shoe organiser. I felt bloody knackered after I'd finished so just lay down on my bed for 5 mins (my arthritis is really getting the better of me lately) then I saw your thread, clicked on it, then made a deal with myself. Get up, quickly strip the whiffy bed linen off and bung it in the wash, then you can read the thread. It didn't take as long as I thought, and I'd have put it off till tomorrow otherwise. So thank you!

Sparklingbrook Sat 16-May-20 12:49:25

Maybe I should start a thread for all of us vain people. Apparently also make up may be used to make yourself look younger. I am in the house with DH and DS2 though and there's no fooling them. grin

OhioOhioOhio Sat 16-May-20 12:50:56

Great thread idea. I've started a bit of cleaning and caught up with a friend.

MinesaPinot Sat 16-May-20 12:51:48

Been up the road to get a paper and have a wander round the village.

Got two loads of washing out on the line.

Done an online Superdrug order.

Intend to wallow on sofa with a trashy film this afternoon whilst DH does a WhatsApp call with a few mates (I should do an online exercise class but nah....)

ohlookthisisjustdaftnow Sat 16-May-20 12:53:28

Been to the supermarket.

Gone for a walk in the woods.

Tidied the drawers in the kitchen, which were in a right old mess.

Now drinking coffee and listening to the lawnmower as DH cuts the grass.

ProfessorRadcliffeEmerson Sat 16-May-20 12:53:49

I’m feeling very low and flat today. But I have got up, set DD up on her online music lessons, made coffee , changed my sheets and done 10 minutes of yoga. In ten minutes I’ll have a shower and put proper clothes on instead of yoga kit.

ProfessorRadcliffeEmerson Sat 16-May-20 12:54:56

Oh, and I did some ironing.
