Little things in 2018

I find it somewhat telling that I stopped completely recording any little things just before I started my new job. The last few months of 2017 were extremely busy, new job is not really what I was hoping for, I feel bad about leaving my old job five months before I was actually supposed to and I have been fighting off some what feels like is turning into a pretty serious depressive episode. But, for today, I've managed to do a couple of things and that's all I have in me. I'm back to not just take it day by day but take it hour by hour. A list of any bright spots is even more important than ever and I have to start really searching for them every day. Even on the very worst days, there usually is something.

Here's the link for my original it's the little things page, and the one for the second iteration, too (for some reason that one kept switching to an extra small font), as well as little things in 2017.

Sunday 7th January 2018
Had shower and washed hair
Cooked one piece of turkey that I bought in coconut oil and balsamic vinegar as a filling late-afternoon snack
Did the washing-up, including salad spinner
Prepared marinade for the rest of the turkey and chopped it into small pieces, added an onion since I had the chopping board out anyway
Sat down again but once I'd finished my snack got up and peeled and chopped most of the remaining veg - a couple of potatoes to boil later for with the turkey and the rest into a big pot to make soup for the rest of the week 
Decided to phone my brother and had a really good chat 

Monday 5th March 2018
Actually got all of the stuff on my shopping list, including battery for my ukulele tuner
