Hi everyone
Thank you for so much help and such kind words x

Hope you're having a nice relaxing Saturday Trinity.

Hi Trinity- glad to hear the sun's shining on you. Take care x

Productive day then? smile

Good for you lovely, now, when can I expect you here to sort my house out? Why is it that you just seem to tidy by moving one lot of 'stuff/junk' from one room making it all lovely and tidy, to another, and then repeat?

I know I'm not alone in this!

So Trin you wonderful woman you, what have you planned for tomorrow? Are you expecting visitors?

Thinking of you all so much, take good care of yourself xxx

morning all panicking like buggery
where has my ability to do new stuff gone sad

Morning Trin! All new things start with the same first steps as everything else. Once you do two, try four, then another four and before you know it you are well on your way so not worth turning back.

Those first steps are the hardest, but remember we are all there with you in spirit cheering you on. If you can feel our hugs, hear our cheers and us supporting you like a mother supports her toddler when he takes those first wobbly steps. It's not long before he doesn't need her to physically support him, but she is always there, to help negotiate the tricky stuff, to pick up, dust off and kiss grazed knees.

It's a lovely day here. I think it should be with you too. Perfect weather for a car boot. It always rains when I do one, so you have that on your side today.

Remember, one foot in front of the other ((hugs))

Hope the Car Boot goes well Trin, be thinking of ya

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sun 26-May-13 09:38:28

Morning, I posted last night and lost it 'cos the site went unavailable.
Your day in the garden sounds therapeutic and productive.

You're probably at the Boot Fair now, hope you sell lots.

I was reading on another thread about ways people deal with panic/anxiety.
One idea was concentrate on breathing in for a count of 7, and then out for a count of 10.
Another one was choose one of you senses and verbalise out loud what it is experiencing.
So you might say I can hear the birds singing, I can hear music on the radio and the girls talking upstairs. And really concentrate on listening.
Or I can feel the cushion under my fingers, my hair brushing my face, my jumper at the back of my neck. And concentrate of how it feels.
I don't know if any that might help, but I hope you feel better.

Morning Trin. I'm trying to mn less these days, but I'm still thinking of you and will check in from time to time. Hope the car boot goes well - every time I hear from you, I'm overwhelmed again by how strong and stoic you're being.
We're having a car boot sale up here this weekend too - must be the day for them!
Many hugs to you and the girls.

TrinityRhino Sun 26-May-13 13:49:29

hey everyone
just got back
knackered but happy
we made £62 pound after taking away the entry fee and the float.
not at all bad
thats the electrician cost covered and 15 pound to put some petrol in the car smile

Thumbwitch Sun 26-May-13 13:51:46

Hurrah! you did better than I ever did at car boot sales, well done! I was lucky to cover costs (fuel and entry). I gave up pretty soon blush

OliviaMMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 26-May-13 13:56:16

WEll done Trin

InkleWinkle Sun 26-May-13 14:21:43

£62 is fab. You must be a good saleswoman!

Mouseface Sun 26-May-13 15:45:15

Afternoon Trin - well done on the £62.00! That's fantastic and sorts three things out. The spark, the fuel and some space. Great going lovely xx

<reading that backs makes me sound like an arsonist, sparks, fuel and making space, oh dear!>

everlong Sun 26-May-13 17:51:15

Well done and good on you for doing it.

BewitchedBotheredandBewildered Sun 26-May-13 19:28:09

That's amazing , £62 !!!
We've never even covered the cost of the pitch.
Bloody, blinking well done! So, so pleased for you.
And really well done for persevering and getting there in the first place.
Have a lovely sunset brew and give yourself a huge pat on the back.

So impressed. I have never had the willpower to do scar boot sale. Good on you.

Hi Trin sorry I'm so late to this thread, been away for a couple of weeks with no internet.

I'm so sorry to hear your news, it's truly dreadful how much you've had to endure, my heart goes out to you and the girls. You are doing so well, stay strong lovely lady x

WandaDoff Mon 27-May-13 18:06:47

Hi Trin, how are you & the girls today? Are they at school today? Glasgow schools are off but its pissing down so we've just had a PJ day.

£62 is pretty impressive for a mornings work, might have to do a few car boots myself, we've certainly got enough unnecessary crap lying around cluttering the place up smile

MrsJacksonBrodie Mon 27-May-13 18:48:32

Hi, Trinity, I have been unable to post for a week or so (I've had a MNHQ apology shock and we're just back the Wettest Day Ever at Loch Lomond, so am just checking back in.

You are doing so amazingly well. For absolutely bloody years I've been meaning to go to a car boot sale to get rid of some of our accumulated rubbish and am never organised/focussed enough to actually DO it. And there you are, done it and made a great profit <impressed>

Thinking of you lots. Love and strength, as ever x.

TrinityRhino Mon 27-May-13 19:16:59

thanks all
yep they were at school today but a horrid day. soaking wet.
feel angry and unmotivated today
had indigestion most ofvthevday kicked off by taking my ads without food.
silly of me but at least I'm not forgetting to take them.

mrsmindcontrol Mon 27-May-13 19:40:04

Thinking of you Trinity. Am in awe of how together you are at such an awful time. Your lovely girls are so very lucky to have such a strong mummy. Don't worry about feeling 'unmotivated', although I've never been anywhere close to where you are right now, I'm pretty sure sometimes you just need to exist for a day or 2 rather than worrying about getting shit done.
Big hugs xxxxx

That was me btw, MrsJB - a NC from before my 'ban' that I had forgotten about blush.
Yes, the day was horrid enough to depress those with the most gilded of lives....
We now have a sunset hmm
