I forgot to say earlier in my weight loss post, I got my fruit for the week! Cant be without fruit! I snack on it all throughout the day every day.
Mom went to the store for me yesterday and got a load of fruit, thanks mom!
where would I be without you!
Im happy I got it. If I didnt have it I might be tempted to eat other more unhealthy things, and so I am glad I have fruit for the week!
well i rang my coordinator at the irish wheelchair association where I get my pa hours from this morning. I asked her if there was a possibility of having my old pa kristen back to work with me. unfortunately its not possible as kristen has left the organisation so she no longer works for them at all.
however my coordinator did say she thought she’d found someone new for me to work with. I’m sad that kristen cant return to work with me. But I am also happy that the coordinator has possibly found a match for me and that it didnt take too much time.
She said she just needed to talk to the lady in question and then she’d call me back with the details. So fingers crossed. I am hopeful that this will work out.
so i’ve had a productive day. it was busy. despite being really tired i managed. i did sleep some in the afternoon though. after dinner. i slept for like 3 hours. i needed it though, im always drained after therapy.
and today we had a hard session so i needed to do some self care and rest and relax for a while after it.
after the session this morning i went back to moms. had lunch, then read a few chapters of a book. had a lovely stir fry for dinner, which mom made. it was yummy. lots of veggies and chicken in it.
then after dinner and after I’d rested I got a taxi home to my own house which is where I am now. Mom came with me. She stayed for about 2 hours. She helped me put away groceries and then did dishes, cleaned the dog pooh in my yard, and did some other little bits around the house.
since she left I’ve been online, and I’ve also been watching tv. i made some coffee too. i felt like i needed the caffine boost.
i rang the respite place this morning that i was meant to be having an assessment for tomorrow. I’ve decided not to go ahead with it. After talking to my parents, I decided that it just wasnt what I needed right now. I dont feel right about going there. A friend of mine who goes there said the disabilitys that people have are so diverse, and also I’d have to pay for transportation, which would cost me the best part of 70 euro to get up and down to the place, I just dont have that kinda money. so I am not doing it at his time.
Tomorrow I need to ring my coordinator and ask about whether my old PA kristen can be reinstated to work for me. I am hoping she can, but even if she cant, at least I’ll have asked.
as I did last night after coming home from cobh!
It was amazing!
I slept and slept and slept. I didnt wake until very late this morning, like noon!
I got home from Cobh around 7 PM. I was exhausted. The heat was getting to me! so off I went to bed!
It feels good to be feeling so refreshed again. I feel rejuvinated!
We had a blast in Cobh. We had our lunch that we brought in the park. Then we walked around the town, looking in some of the shops, there isnt much to see though, its only a small town. We walked to the museum and the titanic experience and had a look.
The heat was unbearable though! I mean it was super hot!
So off we went to a local bar, that overlooked the water, we sat in there, ate more food, and had drinks.
Well my mom had drinks, I had diet coke.
We both had chicken bbq panninis
they were soooo good! The BBQ sauce on them was amazing!
The price was good too only 7.50 for a pannini and fries and a salad!
So yep we had an awesome day! And I am so glad we went!
Tonight I’m going to visit moms brother with her and her sister. I was going to go home to my own house tonight but then I decided I could wait until tomorrow. Tomorrow in the morning I have therapy and then I’ll go home to my own house in the afternoon, mom said she’d come to my place with me for a while.
So yep a busy week ahead again this week. I’m thankful I have a busy week ahead as I know some people dont have things to do or places to go and feel lonely or alone and isolated. I’m so glad I dont feel like that.
i never did get any sleep last night. i tossed and i turned but no sleep. it was hot. i felt sick with the heat.
i eventually got up at 7 and jumped in a cool shower. feeling much better now. had breakfast and feel normal now again lol.
we decided to go out a little later today I think mom said we’d get the 1 Pm train to cobh. It will be nice to relax in cobh and eat our picnic and then take a walk about and then finish up the afternoon in one of the local bars.
hopefully i can last the day. my dads looking after the four dogs. i decided I wouldnt take nitro. Its far too hot for him to be out and I’d have to try to carry water for him and its just not feesable to be bringing him out in the scortching heat.
so yeah. sitting here drinking a cup of tea still in my pj’s. it feels nice. i’ve the whole morning ahead of me. surprising enough I am not feeling the tiredness now.
mom and me are going out for the day tomorrow. we are going to cobh, which is a town outside the city.
Its about a 30 minute train journey to get there.
we’re going to take a picnic lunch with us. we will also take a walk around the town, and then in the afternoon I promised mom a treat of a drink in one of the local pubs.
The town of Cobh is a touristy place, lots of tourists go there all year round.
it should be a nice day out, will be nice to have it be just the two of us. i’m looking forward to spending some one to one time with my mom.
nitro is just loving the sunshine, well thats when he’s not exhausted from it, but yesterday, I gave him an empty water bottle, and he proudly pranced around the garden with it in his mouth, teasing our dads dog biggie as if to say, look what I got lol. Biggie tried to then chase him, but nitros way too fast and can easily run rings around him. Well biggie is 12, and a little bit on the chubby side so…no wonder nitro can run faster than he can lol.
but he really enjoyed playing in the garden, he loves going to my parents house, as there is another dog to play with, and he enjoys that, and today my parents will be taking on my sisters two pugs, while she’s off to spain for two weeks.
