After nearly two and a half weeks Michael has come out of his latest down period, It seems to be taking a lot out of me nowadays and I feel continually stressed and low. Michael does not seem to take this on board and I am expected to carry on as usual and do all the things Michael usually does( library list and generally keeping track of things), he also expects me to stay in or if I do go out How long I am going to be.
I do of course go out and I take my time usually in the library on the computer as He gets stressed if I use it at home, also it does give me something to do. School is starting back this week so next Tuesday I shall be back there and I am really looking forward to it.
I am stitching a cushion and the stitch is chain stitch, I think it will look good when done and I might give it to my Mum as it is her birthday on the 11th.
I have just started to read a murder/mystery story which is by Claire Curzon. I may write a letter tonight as I have about 5 to answer.
Well that is another week gone by and I've not done much. Things here are much the same, I am having a quiet day just watching TV and sewing( I'm making a chain stitch pansy cushion, I am a also reading a Nora Roberts novel, It is my birthday on Thursday and I am 21 plus VAT, I am hoping to go out with friends on Friday for a meal and I am really looking forward to it. I cannot think of anything else to put as I it has been rather boring the only highlight being shopping yesterday.
It has been quite a good week as last weekend we visited a friend in Peterborough and had a meal out, we also had a look at the Nene Valley Railway and Castor Church. On Monday I went to Mansfield to meet my Mum and had a look around the shops, Mum brought me a short sleeve jacket from a charity shop( I do not buy much from other shops if I can get something of good quality from a charity shop this way I can do my hobbies). Tuesday I had a cleaning day as Michael went to MIND chat shop( this is something I do not manage to get done that often when he is in ). On Wednesday I went to craft group but ended up helping a friend wind up a hank of wool and chatting.
It is Friday and I am not sure that Michael is going to make to the weekend, he nearly went back to bed this morning but got him out eventually, our friend Des is coming over this weekend and we are supposed to be going to Crich Tramway Museum but we shall see.
It has not been to bad a week Michael's mood has improved so it is back to normal( not sure what normal is) so we Have been to MIND twice this week and I have been to all my groups plus yoga(it was the last one).
Both this week and last week I gained weight so I am doing a food and mood diary but this is something I find difficult when times are not good, I also brought a Weight Watchers clicker to help me keep track of my points.
We are having a day out on sunday at our friends in Peterborough and we will be eating out but I will take care what I pick to eat and no pudding.
I am thinking of volunteering at our local libraries homework club, it will only be one night a week as the other night it is held is my Weight Watchers night.
Not a good day today as it has rained most of the day. Michael has improved and life has returned to normal, he did miss an appointment at the hospital and it is not until September which is a disappointment.
I always seem to dip a bit when he comes up and I am always waiting for the next time, feeling tired but I did go to craft group this morning and I have started making christmas cards, I've not been out again because of the weather which is depressing as being out makes me feel better.
At the craft group my neighbors 2 granddaughters were there, 1 is 12 other 10 but I am not so good with children at that age and Hollie the older is always wanting things.
Hopefully the weather will improve tomorrow so I can get out
