"Going out" is heading for my 2k walk.
"Going out out" is going for my weekly food shop to Aldi.
Now usually going "out out" means heading out for a night on the town, all glammed up and lots of socialising.
In the past three weeks I have slipped into the murky waters of leggings, t-shirts, sweatshirts and runners. My face hasn't seen a screed of make-up and my hair has just about seen a brush. So I've gotten onboard with #gailrails capsule wardrobe challenge, which involves picking 30 pieces and working your daily wardrobe around them.
I never thought I'd see the day when I was actually excited about going food shopping! Well today was that day. I washed and styled my hair, put on make up and put on a pair of jeans, which I haven't done in three weeks AND THEY STILL FIT! Hurrah.
So feeling 100% better I headed off for Aldi, complete with my shopping list of what I need for the week ahead. But of course it wouldn't be a trip to Aldi without getting sidetracked by the centre aisle. I came home with a lovely Mindfulness Journal.
Anyone who knows me, knows my love of a good journal that needs to be filled in.
It actually seems to be really good, especially for this difficult mental time.
My other purchase was....an ironing board cover! Again, unprecedented and unexplained joy at this mundane purchase.
Guess what I'm going to be doing tomorrow? Can't wait.
