Lulu update (and Diary Update)
But obviously Lulu is the most important so she comes first!
She is still breathing very quickly, perhaps too shallow and she is sitting oddly for her. She has always been a cat who sleeps in draught excluder position, long and thin, but at the moment she is more curled up. Otherwise there are good signs. Eating, purring when stroked but also purring when you walk close to her. She wont climb onto the furniture and if you put her up then she jumps down again so i think she likes hard floor under her feet. We must see the vet again on Wednesday morning so please keep fingers crossed for her.
I had two diaries for Christmas. I narrow one which would fit in a small handbag, suitable for the odd appointment but not for use as a planner and an A5 one where a week covered a double page spread. I am the small one as a new price book. My previous price book was in excel and was quite neat but I found I didn't refer to it enough, so this one will be more handbag sized. I have labelled up the first page; MEAT - WHOLE CHICKENS PER KG. Second page;MEAT CHICKEN THIGHS PER KILO. After all of the meat pages I did the same again with BAKERY and then TINS. I have started FRUIT/VEG, then it will be DAIRY, JARS, DRIED, OTHER. A single page for each product. It should be quite interesting, as well as cost saving, to see how this pans out.
The second diary is for use as an actual diary. It will have appointments, plans & reminders but also bring structure to my thoughts and plans. I am making a couple of changes to how I structure my week and my diary will help me keep to this until it becomes a habit. I am going to divide my housework over the weekdays rather than leaving it all to the weekend. I am also moving my main meal to lunch time. Our various jobs at the moment mean that we cant sit and eat our dinner all together anyway, unless we eat around midnight, so I might as well eat at lunch time anyway. I will review this after a month.
