Tuesday, March 31, 2015      7 comments

I didn't do so well yesterday, stress-wise. One thing I'm noticing is that I keep a lot of what I feel inside of myself. Doesn't everyone? I mean you can't go around causing conflict all the time because you need to say something about ... Read more

Darn it!

Guess what, I won't be going out tonight - because I forgot to factor in the Sunday bus timetable - my last bus out of here is at 18.10 and then there's nothing to get me home again. The carb-fest continued with toast for breakfast - not t... Read more

The clocks went forward an hour last night - so I've 'lost' an hour's sleep - really didn't need that! It's grey, wet, windy - sort of like winter here this morning. I'm so glad I shared, on here, my plan to do something fun this evening -... Read more

Week Two of the Stress-Busting Challenge - and all that business with technical glitches on Spark was a bit stressful last night! Something went wrong and when I clicked through to a resource I found that I was logged in as Spark Coach Denise! ... Read more

My goodness! That's Week 1 gone already! I am feeling quite a bit less stressed, most of the time. I've been wafting around in a cloud of petitgrain essential oil - which is lovely. It's supposed to calm the nerves, and I think it's defi... Read more

I've been pretty 'cool' about things today. Started at work just before 8am with three of us all thinking we were on the same shift - so some swift re-adjustments had to be done. Then my computer froze up on me - so I had to call IT, who event... Read more

I almost didn't go to my weekly Cornish language evening class last night; I left it until the very last minute, then decided to go! I was glad I did, we had a laugh translating a funny story from Cornish to English. When I got home I had ... Read more

Tuesday, 24th March was supposed to be a day off work, but then a team meeting was scheduled and I had to go in - only for 3 hours - but, you know, it took a pretty big chunk out of the day. To be honest I felt almost tearful on the way int... Read more

I was so out of it yesterday I didn't even log on! So this blog is a quick one, which is about yesterday! I left home at 6.45am and ate my breakfast on the bus to work. I am starting to have that 'oh, no, not work' sort of feeling at the b... Read more

Yesterday, after doing the quiz and finding that one of the stressors could be not having a relative/family member within 50 miles, I decided to phone my son. We don't usually communicate by phone - I keep up with his highlights on twitter and ... Read more

I've decided to join the Stress-busting challenge because I recognise that I am feeling over-whelmed with stuff, and that makes for stress. The actions for week 1 are to keep a journal of things that cause me stress - so that's what my blog... Read more

Warning - this is a bit of a rambly off-load rather than an interesting blog - so only read it if you already like me! emoticonRead more

Compulsory Downtime

After I posted yesterday's blog, I started feeling sniffy....... and developed a cold before bed-time! Went to bed early with a hot-water bottle, and stayed there until later in the morning than usual. I thought I needed some serious dow... Read more

A not so good day

Thursday, March 05, 2015      4 comments

Today is St Piran's Day - I started the day thinking I'd have pasty for lunch (traditional food!) - but I didn't because I was travelling on a bus at lunch-time and hot-food is not allowed - so I went into the supermarket and bought a good low-... Read more

I went for a swim this morning - did 20 mins! I am so chuffed with myself because I can feel that I'm making progress - stronger, more stamina. And I'm loving the feel-good factor :) To be honest, I'm a 'lone exerciser'; I walk alone, run ... Read more
