I am on my own again as Michael is yet again in bed, everytime he says it will not happen again but it always does.
Just finished watching a Columbo movie ( TV is mostly rubbish on Sunday after noon ) and I have been cutting out some card making bits and pieces, I am trying hard not to let it get to me because if I do I shall start eating to much and after last weeks weight loss I want to keep it up. Made a lovely cauliflower cheese for my lunch and had sprouts and carrots, I am usually lucky at our CO-OP to get veg that is just out of date so I eat plenty of veg.
I have found a wonderful web site about meditating www.meditations-uk.co.uk there is alsorts of info on stress and what to do about it.
I collect postcards and I am trying to get one from as many places as possible so if anyone would like to send one I would be greatfull.
I went to WW last night and found I had lost 2 and a half pounds which was good as for the last two weeks I had put weight on. Just hope I can keep this up as I get bored and lonely in the evening and tend to eat more than necessary, I try and keep busy but it is not easy.
I had a lovely day at school yesterday, I really enjoy being with them. I have several stitching projects on the go but find hard to do them when I feel low (Michael is feeling low again after being up for only a week again, he mostly causes his own stress as he gets very worked up about so many small things and some problems could be avoided if he dealt with them).
I have nothing planned for this weekend, Saturdays are not too bad but Sundays can be horrible as I do not see many people especially when the weather is bad.
We had a nice day on Sunday at Nene Valley Railway and Ferry meadows Country park but sorry to say it has been downhill since.
We did manage to go out yesterday to MIND which was good as I am taking a course there, Actually it is not that good as all she seems to do is read from a printed sheet but at least we are out. The course is for stress and relaxation and would you believe it but the tutor smokes.
Went to my art group this morning but after an upset with Michael did not feel like doing much but enjoyed the company. School tomorrow but I have a feeling Michael will have a tantrum in the moring.
Iwas going to do a Yoga class but it was cancelled due to lack of interrest.
Sorry it has been a while not been too good. Micheal has just come up after being down nearly 3 weeks, his medication has been changed so we we see what happens next.
I was able to get a grant of a £100 pounds to buy a Mindspa, it has arrived but We was out so It will come tomorrow morning hopefully. It is supposed to help you relax which is something I find difficult to do so hope it works. Watch this space.
I brought a book yesterday from the charity shop of Anne of Green Gables, I first saw the TV series about 30 odd years ago and loved the story.
We have been out today to MIND chat shop, I don't always go but it does give me chance to do some shopping in Kirkby as it is cheaper also had a look around the charity shop and brought another book this time by Catherine Cookson but is not a story book.
We are going out on Sunday to Nene Valley Railway n.era Peterborough for there Forties Weekend ( if all goes well ). Because of Michael's problems we have hardly been anywhere this summer.
I am feeling really tired but fortunately it is not in my nature to give up. Michael hates this time of year mostly because of bonfire night and fireworks but also he does not like dark nights.
I am going to get my flu jab and asthma check in the next few weeks. I had hoped to be doing a yoga class but only two turned so it was cancelled.
I have been to school today and I had a lovely morning with the children and then I walked into Kirkby town centre to do some shopping, I then went to catch the bus home but unfortunately it broke down and I had to wait for an hour for the next ( we always get the oldest and therefore rubbish buses on our route and they are expensive as well ) which meant I did not get home until nearly 3 pm so Michael was panicking as to my whereabouts ( he would prefer it if I did not go out ).
I ( think) I have decided against the drawing course as it just is not me, I feel much happier with embroidery or cross stitch, it is a shame as it is about recording the village history.
