Good morning and happy tuesday!
I hope your all having a lovely start to your day, or if it is night time where you are then I hope you had a very nice day!
I am wide awake. I woke up at 3 AM. I couldnt go back to sleep, so I have been watching tv and listening to the radio. And drinking diet coke.
My relief PA gets here at 9 AM. Its her last day working with me today. And I will be so glad to have my other PA back!
I missed her! Its funny how you get used to working with one particular person, isnt it?
Anyway not much on the agenda today, except to get my assignment for college done and handed in! I need to just sit down for a few hours and tackle it. I never got to it at the weekend, so I need to do it today as it is due in on friday!
Heres hoping! I am not in the mood but I know once I sit down to do it the words will just flow. At least I hope they will. Its journal style entries, so once I can gather my thoughts to write, that will be good.
I am meant to be going volunteering too today. I am not sure if I will go in yet though. If I can get the college work done this morning, then I will go in!
Anyway do let me know in the comments what is on your agenda today!
Have a nice tuesday all!
I have so much I wanna say. I cant. I am lost for words.
My chest is tight my stomach hurts.
I feel clammy, sick, sweaty.
I am losing my shit. I wanna talk but I cant. I need to. I just cant though.
Everything is wrong. So much going on. I just need someone to hear me. Hear what I am not saying…
So I’ve started to be serious about exercising. I have a treadmill, and I need to start using it regularly.
So today I decided, I will make a start. I got on the treadmill twice. I did 10 minutes at a time. I also have an apple watch, and I am able to track my time and distance and speed on it.
I am happy with the result. I feel brilliant and I am impressed with the speed I was able to go at.
If I can keep this trend up, maybe I can really tone up my body. Plus I’ll become super fit. I wont do 7 days a week on it, but I intend to do at least 5 days a week on the treadmill. I will take a break at the weekends as I am not home usually on weekends.
They say it takes 21 days for a habit to form. I hope I can make this a permanent thing and form a new habit of using it regularly.
It is difficult to live in and enjoy the moment when you are thinking about the past or worrying about the future. You cannot change your past, but you can ruin the present by worrying about your future. Learn from the past, plan for the future. The more you live in and enjoy the present moment, the happier you will be.

So i am at my friends house. I got here a little while ago. We aren’t doing anything special, just hanging out and chatting. It’s nice. I like spending time with her, its my friend Norma. She’s blind like me and she has mental health difficulties so we have a lot in common. We’ve been discussing books we’ve read recently, and we’ve also been chatting about our mentors, as she also has a mentor at the basement club, she goes there too like i do. I’ll stay here for about 3 hours I’d say. When i got here her pa was here and she made me a coffee, she makes a mean cup of coffee. 🙂 it was so cool that she did that for me. I got a taxi here, and the partnership where i volunteer for friendly call pays for the taxi’s to Norma’s house, as they consider me to be visiting her and its kinda part of what i do for them as she’s a client of friendly call also.
I’m reading a fantastic book at the moment, it’s called pimped and it’s by Samantha Owens. It’s a really really good read and I would highly recommend it.
It’s a non-fiction book, a memoir, a true life story.
The thing is this poor teenager had to go through our shocking, really shocking. But they are all to relate able to me some of them at least especially the sexual abuse. Since I was abused not in the same way but in a similar way. I mean I wasn’t pimped out to men, it wasn’t that sort of abuse, but I was raped and so I can relate to what she went through in that way.
If you’re not easily triggered, and you enjoy true stories, I would highly recommend this book to you.
It’s available on audible and probably in kindle format as well.
