this weekends been so busy. On friday I went to my parents, as I usually do on Friday afternoons. We decided, well mom did, that we’d all that is myself, mom, my sister and the two kids go to a local wildlife park on Saturday if the weather stayed good. It was meant to be warm and dry, with only a little bit of light drizzle. Luckily the weather did stay dry, so off we went with our picnic. We’d never gone to this particular park before. It was called a wildlife park, but really there was only deer in it and some ducks and wild birds. There was a restaurant there too but we only looked at it from the outside, because we had our food. Having a picnic was nice. Before our picnic we went for a 45 minute walk. There was lots of trails to walk on in the park. Some were long and some were short. After our picnic we said we’d take another walk, and we ended up walking for 2 hours. Overall myphone said I walked 6.5 miles. I can tell you after that much walking I was totally exhausted. Before we drove home we decided to get ice cream. We all got big cones. They were delicious. Once I got back to mom and dads house I watched tv for a little while but I was too tired and just wanted to go to bed. I went to bed at around 8 PM and I fell right to sleep without even a little bit of trouble. And I slept right through until 5 AM this morning. Thats the best sleep I’ve had in a very long time. I felt so refreshed when I woke up, it felt good. Today was a more relaxed day. My sister came for dinner with the kids, and then afterwords I went to my friend normas for a couple hours. While I was there my mom rang me, she said they were going to have a BBQ in the garden and did I want to come join them, so I went back to their house and ate BBQ food, I had a burger and sausages. That, and the icecream was my treat for this week. I’d been being really good, my sister brought lemon drizzle cake for dessert today and I didnt even have any of it. As soon as I finish writing this I’m off to walk on the treadmill. Nitro had a great time in the garden playing with my niece and nephew. He was chasing sticks and a ball. The kids tired him out. We just got home to our own house about 20 minutes ago. It really has been a pretty good weekend. Eileen texted me earlier today while I was at normas house to ask me if I would be able to come at 12 PM tomorrow instead of at 1:45 PM. I said I would. Not sure why she wants to change the time but its ok with me for this week anyway. So yeah hoping for a good week ahead now after the weekend being so great.
Good morning everyone
I woke up at 8 so decided to get up. even tho i only went to bed at 3 AM. no point in staying in bed and sleeping on a hot day, it wastes the day in my opinion.
i have no plans for today. my dad just took nitro for a walk. he always does that when i am visiting. he has his own dog called biggie, a bullstaff, he walks him too his dog is his life he likes to walk him and so when nitros here he doesnt miss out and goes for walks too.
i intend on catching up on my blogs for the morning and then we’ll see after that.
Things are a lot better for us today. A lot calmer. We had a terrific day. The weather here was beautiful today. I spent the day at my parents house out in their garden. Nitro was in his element, he really enjoyed being out in the garden running around. My sister came with the kids and we all had a fun time. Tomorrow mom and us and our sister and the kids are going to the beach and doing a BBQ on the beach. I’m looking forward to it. I’m also looking forward to a long walk on the beach, and a big 99 icecream cone on the way home. I promised the kids I’d get them an ice cream cone with a chocolate flake in it. The BBQ should be fun. We’re going to BBQ sausages. The weather for the rest of this weekend is supposed to be fabulous. Its my cousins birthday tomorrow, I got her a card and am giving her some money and a lottery ticket. Mom and me and my sister were going to go to my aunts today to drop her presents and cards off to her but then my sister was too tired so we never ended up going. My other aunt whose moms other sister called this evening and I spent some time chatting to her and mom which was cool. I’ve also been burning cd’s all day onto my computer. I am trying to rip all of my music and rip all of my movies and its going to take me forever lol. I have so many you see. My new dvd’s and cd’s i got on ebay havent arrived yet. I’m anxiously waiting for them to arrive. Maybe they’ll come on Monday. I hope you’ve all had a good day today. What are your plans for the weekend?
Me and Nitro are enjoying the sunshine today. Its roasting here. Yesterday was nice as well. One of the staff showed me an area outside where Nitro can go and its all walled in so he cant get out. I brought him out after his dinner for half an hour. I sat on the bench and he ran around and it was wonderful. Feeling the sun on my face was so refreshing. It made me feel so good. Its almost dinner time now. Its spaghetti bolognes tonight. I napped for a while in the afternoon today. I napped for longer than I thought I would. Hopefully I’ll still sleep tonight.
so the rest of my saturday evening was good. Did not get up to much. Had a little me time, ran a hot bath and enjoyed that. Read my book for a while and watched some more tv with my parents. We watched the voice UK which was good. We also watched a quiz show where they give away cars, holidays and cash. I’m tired so think I will have an early night. Ending my day on a happy note which I love.
I’m having a very low key and quiet weekend. I’m at my parents, and have basically been either sleeping, or reading all day. Since I havent slept great all week, I needed to catch up on sleep. I am reading the new Cathy glass book called nobodys son, and will review it once I’m done.
Mood wise things are ok. I feel happy and havent been struggling that much with low mood or feeling triggered which is a huge relief to me.
The weather is crap wet and windy and just icky so I havent been able to go out walking like I’d planned to do. I’ll be going home to my own house tomorrow though so can use the treadmill and get my exercise in that way.
Eating wise I am eating very healthily, drinking plenty of water, eating a ton of fruit and vegetables and I am pleased with how things are going on that front. Even yesterday, while I was at the basement club, someone brought in chocolate and biscuits and I didnt have any, I was able to say no to them.
so the day hasnt gone too badly. i got a call from the agency that is providing a job coach to me. they want me to come in on friday at 2:30 in the afternoon to meet them. its a guy, tony. he seems nice. he said its just an initial meeting, to see if i am right for the service. he said i do qualify because of my dual disabilitys but he said he needs to figure out if its a suitable service. i am excited. maybe, just maybe this is going to work out and i can finally get a part time job.
mom and my sister just left. They were here since about noon. we had breakfast together me and my sister and then both of them did some housework. it was good to have them here with me, keeping me company. i like it when they visit.
i am going to a womens group this evening from 5 until 7. its run by the basement club. its a planning group, it will be to plan what we want to do in the womens group for the rest of this year. i am looking forward to it, I hope a lot of people will come.
Will write about my dr. Barry apt in a separate post later tonight.
