Leaving My Job After 8 Years

The last few weeks have been super hard for me. I’ve gained a few pounds from stress eating, and spending my evenings feeling sorry for myself or in bed with a migraine. On Wednesday I was officially made redundant, with my last working day being tomorrow. 

I don’t usually open up like this I’ve been battling stress and anxiety for a while now.   Although I really don’t like change, I don’t think it could have come at a better time really.

I’m so looking forward to a break to be a SAHM for a little while. I need to work on making me better. I’ve let everything get on top of me, but I finally feel that once Tuesday is out the way I can regain my control over my life and home again. 

With having HG (Morning Sickness) whilst pregnant, I never felt like I properly nested. Then after having the boys I felt like I was drowning. I was so overwhelmed, that my house went to the bottom of the list of priorities. Then the tasks build up. I even write lists. I lie awake thinking of all the things I need to do tomorrow, and yet the following day comes and I don’t know where to start, and overthink it so much I end up doing nothing. 

I need to take serious control over my life. Regain structure and routine, and the first step is to overhaul the house. I’m a hoarder, but it needs to stop! At the end of the day, the disorganisation makes me sadder than holding onto a dress that will never fit me again. 

Over the past couple of months @mrshinchhome_x_ has given me some inspiration and equipment to make tasks easier, so my day to day tasks are being kept on top of.

Who knows by 2019 I’ll have a home pretty enough to show off on Instagram and pinterest 😂💕
