Nothing New

Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Well it is over 3 weeks since My Husband Michael took to his bed, he has hardly eaten only drinks a little and has not had a wash for two weeks. Tomorrow he supposed to be at the hospital but doubt he will get there which means the crisis team will come to us. I am not coping that well with all this and it is lucky that I have hobbies, friends and pen-pals to keep me busy.

I started a new stitch project of a cushion with panies done in chain stitch, hopefully it will not be a long term project. I am finding it difficult to concentrate on reading but have two Torey Haydens to read plus a Debbie Macomber and two Jennifer Chiavarini novels on the way , does anyone else read her books?

    Hello Friend.

I'm glad that you are okay and still doing your needlework and craft projects.

I typically put my books in a "jumble sale" or give them to a friend... it makes room for more books on my shelves. In a recent post, you mentioned that you haven't read all the "Debbie" books yet. I do have some books in the Cedar Cove and Blossom Street series. I will e-mail a list to you this week of what I have. If you haven't read them any on the list, let me know and I can send them to you. It's always fun to get packages in the mail!

I have not read any of Jennifer's books but will see if they are available at our library... thank for the tip!

  Hi, sounds like you have your hands full caring for your husband. I can empathise with you as I nursed my mother right to the end. You are doing your best and when you do that you can do no better. All you can do is hand it over.

It is good to hear that you have your sewing and reading to keep you busy. When you can put in hobbies you can relieve the stress so good for you.

Being a crime novel reader I do not read the ones you mentioned but you enjoy them so get comfy, nice and relaxed and enjoy.

    I have only read some of Debbie Macomber's books from your list, but I will certainly check on the others!

Thoughts and prayers are with you and your husband from Northern, IL.

Still the same

Well I am sorry to say that things have not improved at all, It is now over 2 and a half weeks since Michael started his latest depression, I am trying very hard not to let it get to me. Our friend came over at the weekend and he would not even speak to him. We did take ourselves out but he was not happy about being left on his own( not our fault), on sunday we went to a little village near Matlock to there Well Dressing and visited the church which was beautiful But not old.

I have been in touch with our GP and now I have to phone the Mental Health unit for advice. Tomorrow I am hoping to go to Derby to the carers group, it is good to be with others who understand my situation.

I am just about to start a new stitch project which is a cushion with pansies stitched in chain stitch, think it will look good. On Saturday we are having a craft supply day in the village so hope to pick up some cheap supplies. emoticon emoticon emoticon

It should have been yoga today but someone had booked the room and they did not tell us I was very disappointed especially as I paid bus fare to get here


What a week

Friday, July 10, 2009

I have not had a very good week. Last weekend I had a migraine, followed by Michael having a very bad sore throat and on Wednesday I fell down, I hurt two of my fingers and scraped my knee, I also broke the glass in a picture frame and yesterday had to go and see if I could get a replacement (luckily I did). Added to all that Michael has been in bed for two weeks, which is really getting me down. I saw our GP this morning and she has altered my tablets also I was able to off load a little ( I told her all about this site).

Now the plus side of things. While in Ripley yesterday I brought myself a new(to me) top and pair of sandals. I also had a good morning at school on Monday but it is last day next week and I am really going to miss seeing the children.

Our friend Des is coming over tomorrow and I am hoping Michael will perk up so we can go out emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Sorry you had a bad week. I had mine last week. Hard to see any end in sight sometimes. It really helps with the supportive group on this site. Hope you have a good weekend and next week is better than this one. emoticon

Hello it's Saturday

Saturday, July 04, 2009

I have not been able to get much time on the computer over the last week. Things are not going so well here as Michael is very low in mood and I am not coping to well my self.
I am enjoying the yoga course and it has another 3 weeks to go. The school holidays are nearly here and I will miss going to school. It has been quite hot here in Jacksdale emoticon emoticon so have not felt like doing much really. I have been to craft group on Wednesday Morning which was good as a friend brought me loads of craft books, I am trying hard to finish a birthday card for a friends birthday on Tuesday luckily it only has to go to Norfolk.



coffee morning

Coffee morning

There was a coffee morning at school this morning, it was really good and I got meet the new headteacher. There was also a rather lovely guide dog who I made friends with. I confess I did have some cake but there was also fruit kebabs which were nice. I will probably be the same weight tonight at W W but on the other hand I am hoping to start at the gym soon but they have to do an induction first so will be next week before this is done.

Yesterday I met my mum in Newark which is about 30 miles away, She brought me a cardigan for my birthday(not until August) and I did some shopping in the pound shop as they have loads of cheap stuff, did not do much else apart from go for a coffee. emoticon emoticon emoticon
