Now just 3 weeks!

Sunday, August 14, 2011

3 weeks to go, and hopefully I may be able to get my life back together.
2011 has been a very very hard year for me and although with time in general has already made fast progress towards it's end in December!
And with many problems and personal issues, at least I'm coming to terms with it all and the help that I have been receiving.

One of the best medicines I have found is distraction. I have found this in my garden and it takes me to places where no one can touch or harm me.

The last blog I made had a few pictures of some of the progress and with taking delivery of "yet" another table and chairs, and a few more plants this morning, thought that I'd show some more additions!

I know that it all takes time, money and effort. 2 of these I have in abundance, the 3rd I just buy things with when it comes my way. But not being a smoker, drinker etc. all my small amount of spare cash can go towards my new addiction!

Enjoy your Sunday,

Chris. Share This Post With Others

    The flowers and table and chairs are beautiful! Its amazing what a garden can do for you to ease your mind! I love spending time there and listening to the birds and seeing nature. Sometimes its very hard work, but its well worth it. Thank you for sharing the pictures Chris. Sorry I am a bit late, had a busy week and i am really tired! Have a lovely weekend! love and emoticon from Ellen xx

    Glad to hear that you're doing ok Chris. Your garden looks great and yes, it's certainly a better distraction than food! Hopefully all that exercise is helping with your weight-loss too! I too am counting down the weeks till the end of this year then my daughter will come back from maternity leave and I can retire again. emoticon xx

    Wow I wish my garden looked as good as yours Chris! Ever fancy coming over to me as my garden is full of weeds at present!!

    I am so glad and relieved that you have found something to distract you and calm you when you feel anxious or stressed - we all need something like that in our lives. It's particularly good when you can see your efforts are creating a little haven for you and the results are something beautiful and lovely. Much better than the food distractions I used to use ( and sometimes still do if I'm honest) which only created sadness and ugliness.

    I think you are going to be fine and are doing great.

    Well done and keep going with it.
