I thought I better post a quick update that I've pulled myself out of my slough of despond and I'm in a much better place today. I joined the fun Aerobics class last night, even though it was showing as full on-line yesterday. Luckily for me, some people who had booked just didn't turn up.
So, not only did I exercise my body, I also lifted my mood.
DH was less negative last night, and today is positively cheerful.
He asked me if I had been talking to his family, which I hadn't (they are all as bad as each other for not keeping in contact). The reason he asked that question? Because his brother rang yesterday evening and invited us to dinner on Saturday, along with his sister and other brother. That's a date! It's such a rare occurrence - I think it's 2 years since we've seen any of his family, and maybe four since we've been to dinner with them. They live about 20 miles away, so not far.
To put that in perspective, my family live nearly 200 miles away, and I go visit them every 5 weeks, and we ring/Facebook lots. My DH even asks when I last spoke to my family if there's been a gap of a couple of days if I've been particularly busy.
