I cant sleep. So I got up. No point in staying in bed when all I seem to be doing is thinking.
I started reading a new book last night. Its called broken and is by rosie lewis. She is a UK foster parent. The books been out a while now and I’ve had it for a while but am only now getting around to reading it. So far I really like it.
I’m so happy its Friday. I love weekends! I came to my parents house last night. I was going to wait to go until today but then my sister said she’d give me a ride so I grabbed it. Saves me money on a taxi fare.
I am going to my friend Normas house today for 2 hours. We are going to do a training session. Im not sure what she wants to actually work on. However I will leave it up to her.
Mom is going to be looking after my sisters kids this morning while my sisters at work. Im sure they’ll be bored as they don’t really have any other kids here to play with, and mom and dad don’t have internet at their house so they cant even use their tablets.
Weathers been good though so that’s good. It means I can walk nitro as it has cooled down considerably. We’re actually meant to have some rain today. A little rain would be nice as we haven’t had any in about 7 weeks. The grass needs watering!
Well I will close this here. Hoping you all have a fantastic Friday and a fantastic weekend!
so I’m back home now. Back in my own house. My mom is here with me.
She came over for a couple hours. Actually she came with me we got a taxi to my house. I had a few bags of fruit and stuff like my computer and some clothes and other stuff and I couldnt manage to carry all of that by myself and she said she’d do a few things around the house so that is why she came with me. Plus, she’d have no ride on wednesday which is her usual day to come over.
I had a nap this morning after therapy. Just an hour. I was determined I wasnt going to sleep the afternoon away. And so I got up again after the hour.
Im still feeling pretty good. I am in a very reflective mood. I didnt even do any of the work today but Liz’s hard work is filtering through to us all. I’m very happy about that.
I am going to have a quiet evening at home with nitro. I am going to watch some tv and read a book. And of course go online too.
Tomorrow I have my volunteering. I havent been in two weeks so it will be good to get back into it. Ok well I am going to go call my friend. I promised I’d call her for a catch up.
i cant believe its already friday. the week seems to have flown by.
i came to my parents house last night. my pa was supposed to come but she canceled on me. so then i decided to just go to my parents, i was going to go today anyway so going a day earlier wouldnt make much difference.
my dad had made a gorgeous spaghetti bolognes so I had some of that. after dinner we sat out in the garden for ages cuz the weather was so hot.
after my sister left with the kids i went inside and lay down and promptly fell asleep. i think all the sunshine got to me.
i slept for the entire night. well on and off. i kept waking. it was just too hot.
finally at 7 AM i got up. showered and had breakfast. mom got this new type of cerial. apple and raisin wheetabix. they’re really yummy.
the temps today are supposed to get to 27 degrees c. i have no plans today except i do have to go visit my friend norma as I am due to do a training session with her.
other than that though no plans. just plan on relaxing and enjoying the nice weather we’re having.
me and norma we had a good time. we just chatted. I was telling her about the respite assessment I’ll be having next week. she goes to that centre too for respite. so she knows all of the people who work there. she was able to give me som e tips for how to approach the assessment. i gave her a new book to read. i gave her the silent witness by casey watson. its a foster care memoir. we sat in the living room with the fan on us. the house is still really warm. nitro started panting a lot and i wasnt sure why he was doing it other than i think he was hot. i let him out and then i put his eardrops in again. he let me do it without any trouble. he actually likes it i think. norma left at 7 pm. a taxi came to pick her up. i decided to try to hook up my apple tv to my tv in my livingroom. but i wasnt able to do it. i’ll try the one in my bedroom later tonight. i know how to do it but i’m not sure i have enough cables places where the cable plugs in. its a bummer as if i had it hooked up i could watch netflicks. i put on my tv but there was nothing on that i wanted to watch. so i turned it off again and will probably read my book for a while.
c the heat was getting to me. so i took a nap. it turned in to a 2 hour nap.
i got up at 3 pm and ate my dinner. i had left some curry out of the freezer so I had that. I feel full up now.
The curry was good. I like making batches of food and freezing it, saves a lot of time and all I have to do is thaw it out when I need it.
My friend Norma is coming over in a little while. She wants a new book. She goes through books at an alarming rate. Faster than I do even.
She’ll probably stay for a few hours. I still have my fan going. Weathers super hot still.
my supervisor from my volunteer job emailed me. She said she was sorry I couldnt come in today and that they missed me. That was sweet of her. She said I could do a training session this weekend with norma so that will be good.
well i just cant sleep in the heat. I tossed an turned all night. finally I gave up at 4 AM and got up. Went online and will probably just stay up for the day now. Its just too hot to sleep. Thank god my windows open! Its lovely to hear the birds singing through the open window. I only slept with a very light quilt over me. Still I was roasting. I did sleep a little, but not too much. Its ok though, I think I’ve gotten enough sleep. I had gone to bed at 11 and I did fall asleep right away. Usually 4 or 5 hours does me. It is going to be a very quiet friday for me. I am glad. I like that I have no plans. I will be going to my friend normas house though as I promised her I’d come over to give her a new book on her phone, and also do a training lesson with her. Other than that though nothing much is happening. I can relax and enjoy the moment.
