I had a lovely day on Friday(my birthday) as I went out for a meal with the carers forum, I did A little shopping before meeting up with them to take a mini bus to the place we were going to have the meal.
Yesterday we went to see a play at the theatre in Nottingham, it was very good and has it was a farce we had a laugh.
I am going to give blood this afternoon, I have missed several sessions because of transport problems.
One cloud on the horizon is Mum, she rang yesterday morning but I was at the shops and I have not been able to get hold of her since, she is 78 in a couple of weeks time and a diabetic.
I have got an evening on my own to do as I please, I am going to my church craft group and then I shall put my relaxation machine on.
I am playing a silly CD of childrens classic songs, does anyone remember Ed Stewpot on weekend radio? Sorry American pals you will not know him.
Feeling tired still but I am trying hard to keep on track. Not sure why but usually feel worse for the two or 3 days after michael comes up, just wish he could see what he is doing.
I am going out for a meal on Friday with the carers group I go to, it is a little place on the River Derwent.
Michael has just come up after just over 4 weeks down, unfortunately he missed the weekend and our friend from Peterborough was visiting, I took Des to a little village for a well dressing but could only find one but there was a Florence Nightingale which was very interesting and yesterday we went to a garden open which was lovely and we had tea and blueberry cake.
Michael being down has really got to me especially as my back has been playing up(I have sciatica problems and as we live near the top of a hill it is not easy getting about, stress also make me very tired. I do not know what I would without my friends, pen-pals and Sparkpals
I am still not back on track but I am doing better. Michael tablets have been changed and think they maybe helping so please keep fingers crossed for me.
I started making my Christmas cards this morning(just seemed like a good idea) but only got one done as we do more chatting than anything else, I need to print of some more Christmas papers before I can do any more, I know of several free site where you can get free ones which helps me keep costs down.
I still feel quite tired but the hot humid weather is not helping not that I am complaining.
I really want to get back on track but not sure where to start, last time I saw my GP she said not to worry about my weight as I was (and still am) feeling very low, only trouble is with her saying that I am sure I have been nibbling and pecking more. I seem to do alright in the day but come evening(especially if Michael is down) I seem to eat loads and this is not good, I have been drinking more water (with cordial) as it has been so hot. I have also been having more trouble with sciatica so I am not walking so much.
