Feeling a bit low today....I seem to have a sink after stressful times , was the same when we got back from Ireland.... seem to go on autopilot to cope in the midst of it, then sink afterwards. Also worrying about cost of car and lack of money LOL ..... contemplating going back to work , which is also stressing me out... ....still will try to keep busy and motivate myself as that normally helps pull me round....
Washed and dressed Dishwasher filter cleaned then loaded and running Off to village shop for missing milk Back home for much needed cup of tea Spoke to friend re taxi for this evening (in the sticks so very scarce her dh is a taxi driver)
Somehow I started a new thread and then posted on the old one . Here is list: Today: laundry email holiday pictures to various people declutter bedroom
tea I will attempt to link to audiobook. I have now finished it - feeling very tranquil .
galen I am also prone to a touch of post traumatic stress after a crisis. I have developed a fear of driving long distances alone with DC after my spectacular breakdown in Birminham in Feb (DH also has a fear as he had to come and rescue us). I do think you have had more than your fair share of upheavals this summer though, you need a period of stability to get your breath back. Don't contemplate work yet if you can possibly help it.
Scatty looks goof, will have to see if we have any spare cash
Washed the childrens bedding, hung out changed the boys bed Put another wash on DS2 had an accident rang GP's - waiting for a call back as I think DS2 has a chest infection Rang MIL arranged for DH to come home so I can take DS1 to swimming lesson some ironing made homemade lasagne for dinner (I need more mustard powder) Sorted garlic butter for dinner too
sag and tea I didn't know the first thing about Buddhism (I only bought the book because I subscribe to Audible for DS Famous Five audio books and I get free credits so clicked on that one). But it is lovely. Part anger management part anxiety management and part child rearing with a little bit of spirituality thrown in .
Been busy here and out all day. I took Ed to buy some new school jumpers and got waylaid by Wilkinson's and the new Poundland Also got Ed's huge mane cropped and my hair cut too.
Ed was so very good today I let him have a happy meal lunch. He was so very happy with that . Also got him some Playmobil people (he's gone mad for those ATM) and some replacement (easier for mum to manage) poster paints. Now he's fussing with his rocks he got on holiday (Eek )
