Today I went clothes shopping. I bought lots of jumpers (sweaters). 7 in fact. 100 worth - which is a huge amount for me because I hate clothes shopping - but the other thing is I managed to do this all on my own :) (there's a non scale victory... Read more

Last night I slept poorly. I went out with my dad early today, and then helped tidy up my sister's garden. By the time I got home I was very tired, and feeling sorry for myself. I cried at the futility of it all. That the house was a mess. ... Read more
