Monday

So, two spider nests in the bedroom have turned into three.

It’s like the Newtown spider community have sent out smoke signals.

I’m going to have to do something about it before they all get too big. I think the answer is one of those bombs you set and then leave the house. That way I don’t have to imagine I can hear their little spider screams as they die.

It’s probably some kind of crazy that I’ve managed to anthropomorphise spiders, but I don’t think anyone who has read Charlotte’s Web as a kid will ever think of spiders in the same way.

I’ve been setting lists of intentions for myself each day and each week, and I’m finding it really useful, but the last few days I think I’ve got overly ambitious. Not so much with my weekly goals, but with what I can get done in a day. I get carried away at the start of the day with how much I want to get done, and then by 3pm I’ve had enough interruptions or new work stuff come in that it all unravels a bit.

It’s fine, and it’s still all positive. I think I just need to be a bit more measured at the start of the day, so I can actually hit all or most of the goals by the end.

Today I am grateful that my mum and niece at coming to Sydney for a visit at the end of the week. We’re going to the Easter Show and I’m really looking forward to it.

A positive thing about myself today: I managed to get a really shitty job done that I had been putting off for a while at work. I actually scheduled it in my calendar and wouldn’t let myself eat lunch until it was done. And as is the way with all things, it really wasn’t that bad when I got into it.
