We had a fairly good weekend as on Sunday we went to Peterborough to visit a friend and we had lunch out which was nice.
But we are now back to usual as Michael has gone down low again and is in bed, I'm try to do business as usual but it is so cold and miserable today so not done much apart from some ironing. I have just started to knit a scarf as they are easy to do when talking or watching TV.
I have signed up for a carers course to don't have to go to everyone just the ones that would be useful to you.
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.
