I have had a good morning in Derby. I went for the carers forum meeting but got there early so could do some shopping, did not buy much just some cheap Weight Watchers food( from a £ shop) and had a look around the charity shops brought a lovely calendar with puppies on and a pearl necklace for £3 from the PDSA, I also went to the cathedral which I think is lovely and very peaceful.
The meeting was in a new place but they messed us about and the usual food people were on holiday but apart from that it was a good meeting.
I forgot to take my phone so Michael panicked and met met of the bus telling me just about everything he had done in about 5 minutes.
Things are just the same here as Michael is in bed again (nearly two weeks) I'm not really coping that well even though Our friend Des has been here, he says not to worry but it is not right that he come to see us both but he won't even talk to or see him, I do my best but feel as if I should do more for Des but not sure what. I wanted to go shopping this morning but he kicked up such a fuss I only went to the local shop.
It is my carer forum this Friday and I really want to go but don't know whether I can cope with the tantrum he will have when I tell him.
I may ring the doctors tomorrow as it does help to talk even if it is only for a couple minutes.
I have two other things planned one is a crafts show which I can go to completely free and the other is a carers course but I've not told him yet.
I hope you don't think that all I do is moan because that that is not really me, I am an happy person who likes to make friends and go places.
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cauliflower cheese for my lunch and had sprouts and carrots, I am usually lucky at our CO-OP to get veg that is just out of date so I eat plenty of veg.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.
