Okish afternoon

well I ended up having an okish afternoon. I went to iceland, its a local grocery store, I had to buy some groceries for the month, mainly I had to buy slimming world meals, but I ended up buying other stuff as well. I spent 77 euro there. I wasnt planning on spending that much but oh well. It happened, and its done now.
I am happy with the things I got. My sister took me there. Afterwords she said she’d drop me back to my house with the food, so I could put it all away. That was nice of her. So we did that, and then I came back to mom and dads house.
Now we’ve just eaten dinner. I had a frozen meal for my dinner. I had this one with chicken and vegetables, and noodles in a sweet chili sauce. It was delicious and now I am stuffed.
I feel okish right now. Im sure when it comes to tonight I’ll be feeling bad again, but for now I feel ok, and I’ll take that.

Friendly call shift was good

I had a really great shift today on friendly call. I got here on time, wasnt sure I would but the taxi that picked me up was actually 5 minutes early.
I had a big list of people to call. I think I made around 40 calls. It was really lovely to talk to so many of our clients. They were mostly all doing good so that was nice to see. There are 3 of us making the calls today. So between all of us we’re getting them all done. I’ll be leaving soon to go to my parents. My supervisor said I could leave once I am done with my calls. My colleague trish whose usually in the office with me is gone somewhere to set up for culture night, the office here is putting on a cookery demonstration an international cookery demonstration for culture night. So I’d better get going and go pack up and get ready to leave soon.

Productive morning with my PA

so my pa came this morning. she normally does from 9 AM until 1 PM. I let her go a little early today though. She had to collect one of her kids from school. Normally her mom does it but her mom was away on holidays this week. We had a good productive few hours. We did housework, lots of it. She did vacuming, mopping, dishes, etc. She didnt change my bed this week, I didnt want it done. We had to go to a local shopping mall. I needed to go to the ATM. She took me in her car. Saved us walking there. She really isnt supposed to take me in her car, but she said it would be ok. While we were there we bought some lunch, we bought bread rolls and turkey and cheese and we came back to my house and made them up. Lunch was good. After eating we just chatted. I did have her go back to the store though for coffee as I forgot to buy it while we were there. I cant be without my coffee, and neither can Liz. Liz would kill me if there was no coffee in the house. I have an hour now before I have to leave to go volunteering. I plan on just going on the computer for a while until I have to leave. I’m feeling really good about my new PA. I really like her. I feel like we’re getting on really good. Our relationship is coming along nicely. We are clicking and geling which is nice.

There’s a storm!

There is a bad storm going on here. Lots of wind and rain. Its extremely windy outside. I had to put nitro outside in it, he didn’t like that at all.

I do have to go out in it this morning as I have to go see my OT and I also have to see dr. barry. I don’t like that I have to go out in it but I’ll do it because well these appointments are important.

I couldn’t really sleep last night, the wind was howling and keeping me up. So I am very tired this morning.

I booked my taxi for 8 AM. I have 50 minutes to go before it comes.

Another morning

So I got 2 hours of sleep. Thats it. Surprisingly though I am feeling fine. I dont feel too tired.

I got up at 7:45 when Nitro came in and stood by my bed and started panting and whimpering. He wanted out. So I got up, fed him and let him out. And now he’s happy again.

I plan on having a leisurely morning. I am going volunteering this afternoon. So the morning will be spent lazing about. Any tiredness I feel will hopefully disappear as the morning goes on.

Mood wise we’re doing ok. Nothing major there to report. Things seem to be good. Boy am I ever glad of that.

Making good use of my time when I am not asleep

well sleep wouldn’t come. so what did I go and do? I started messing around with a new gadget I got today. a techy gadget its called a plex talk its a player for playing audio files and recording audio files. its one especially for the blind. I downloaded the manual and started reading through it when I couldn’t sleep. and what do you know, I figured out how to work it! so now i’m good to go! I can work it and it works fine and I like it from the little bit I played with it. and I made good use of my time too! so yay! so happy! 😀

now im just reading blogs and listening to the radio. no sign of my friend sleep yet. doubt it is coming any time soon. I feel kinda agitated. edgy. activated. so I cant settle down. I might go read now. I didn’t do it earlier.

I did it, braved the store

Well I did it. I braved the store with my mom. I got what I needed and I managed, it wasn’t too bad actually. My anxiety was less by the time I actually got there. So I made it, I am very proud. It feels good to have accomplished that today. Now I have what I need grocery wise for the week…yay. I usually love spending the one to one time with mom just going there, and doing that activity. It is a little mother and daughter time that I really love a lot. We usually talk a lot and it is nice to be able to do that. Right now I am feeling ok, the anxiety is gone. I have eaten dinner we had yummy lamb chops, normally we have a big roast dinner on a sunday, but my sister went to her partners family this week so mom decided that her and my dad and me would just have lamb chops so that is what we had. They were nice too I hadn’t had them in ages. I am feeling great now and looking forward to a chill afternoon where I will do absolutely nothing. I hope your all having a great sunday. Thanks for reading.
