therapy today was draining, and other random stuff

busy day today here with therapy this morning and then work this afternoon. I am so wrecked now. absolutely shattered and just feeling so drained. feel like i’ve been hit by a frait train. i am trying to unwind, watching tv and maybe going to read in a little while.
therapy was hard. darks got time to talk about contact from abusers and their feelings around that. they also talked about last week and eileen managed to get it out of one of them why we didnt come in. I will try to write about it at some point, or have Kelli the teen who actually talked to eileen write about it.
I just really feel like having an early night tonight. I am shattered.
I dont know if I can though. Not sure how our sleep will be. We didnt do well last night as we had a storm here, wind and lots of rain and it was lashing off the windows and keeping us up.
Going to try for an early night though, if I can I will have one. I am working again tomorrow afternoon. Also, got on to tech support for my broadband as it keeps dropping the connection, and they made an apt to come out to me on thursday morning, to look at it and see what the problem might be.
At least my morning is free tomorrow, I can relax for the morning before working in the afternoon, work was good today, despite the weather being bad, the atmosphere in the office was awesome.


#weekend coffee share!

If we were having a coffee today, or tomorrow, or any time this weekend, I’d tell you that I am at my parents house, and I am usually here every weekend! I normally come to my parents after my shift on friendly call which I do on Friday afternoons. Occasionally I will stay at home for the weekend, but normally I don’t.

I’d tell you that today I visited my friend Norma. She gave me a nice gift for my birthday, which is next Friday, I’m going to be 39! Omg! 39 guys! I am so old!

She gave me earrings! They are shaped like hearts and I love them!

I’d tell you that my dog is sleeping soundly by my feet. He is such a wimp. Tonight I was watching britains got talent on tv, and every time the buzzers went off to say that the judges didn’t like someone, he’d jump up and be all freaked out! He doesn’t like the noise of them! I had to take him out of the room until it was over, which also meant I couldn’t watch it either, boo!

I’d tell you that mom and me are going to Killarney in county Kerry next weekend, for a mother daughter weekend away for my birthday! And I cannot wait! I am so excited!

I’d tell you that mom is also going to come over to my house tomorrow when I am going home, and help me to do a few things, like clean my yard, there’s dog poop out there, yucky! And so she’ll clean it up for me since I cant, since I am blind!

And that’s about it for the weekend! I hope you all had a nice one! I hope whatever you did, you had fun!

Its Friday!

Happy friday all! Have a great weekend wherever you are in the world!
I love that its friday! Weekends are my absolute favourite time!
So much time to chill, relax and unwind!
Hope you all have a splendid day!

My PA is coming at 9, we’re just going to do some housework, my house needs a good cleaning! She has the flu, so she probably isnt up for doing much of anything. I offered her a day off, but she said she’d be fine, and she’d come to work.
Im volunteering in the afternoon as I usually do on Fridays. I will then be going to mom and dads for the weekend!
So thats my plan!
Have a great friday and a fantastic weekend, do tell me what you are going to get up to!



So I didn’t go volunteering this afternoon! I thought I’d stay hoeme instead! I am having a relaxed day at home! I have my heating on and me and nitro are having a fun time just chilling out! I went on the treadmill for 15 minutes this morning, and I plan on going on again this evening for 30 minutes.
I made dinner, ate it, and am now watching some tv! This is the life!
I ended up ringing tech support for my ISP because the internet dropped again earlier. He fixed a few settings and now everything is fine again! Thank goodness!
I am going to finish my book today I hope! That is the plan anyway!
Well have a great Tuesday!

Chai and a chat!

If we were having chai and a chat this morning, I’d tell you that I woke at 4 AM. I didn’t go to sleep until around 1 AM. That’s far too little sleep if you ask me! But I woke up, and couldn’t go back, so I got up and made tea! Because as Em would say, tea makes everything better!

I’d tell you that I am watching the news on tv right now! Its all about the government. I am thinking of trying to watch something else, as politics doesn’t really interest me, but at this time of the morning there isn’t much choice.

I’d tell you that I am thinking of making sausages for breakfast today. I got low fat sausages, they’re 1 syn each, for those who don’t know syns are what slimming world calls treats, or the foods we shouldn’t eat to much of!

I’d tell you that I have the delivery of my treadmill on my mind this morning! I’m just hoping that the driver will call me before he arrives. If he doesn’t I guess I’ll still open the door, as I am expecting him, but it would be nice if he actually rang me to let me know he’s on his way!

I’d tell you that I have no therapy today. I don’t have therapy until Thursday! I am so thankful to Eileen for fitting me in. She made a space for me despite having a very busy schedule this week! Thanks Eileen! Your a star!

I’d tell you that I am working two days this week! I’m glad its only two days. I was asked to come In today but I declined as I needed to be at home since my treadmill is arriving and mom is going to set it up for me!

I’d tell you that the weather here is meant to be good for the rest of this week! I’m delighted! I always love it when we get sun shine! Sunshine makes everything so much better! Its so lovely to wake up to a bright day!

Well that’s about it for chai and a chat for this week! I hope you are all having a great start to your week!

Chai And A Chat #27 #ChaiAndAChat

Work went well today!

had a great shift at friendly call this afternoon! went in around 1:30 or so. another volunteer had done some of my calls for me. so i only had half the amount to do that I’d normally do. All of my clients were in good spirits! One lady had just come out of hospital, she had a mini stroke, she’s doing a lot better now, another of them was in hospital, after being shifted in there on Wednesday, she’d been very ill last week and my supervisor had gone to her house and taken her to the doctor. Other than those two though mostly everyone was ok, and doing well. I was happy to hear it. I got to speak with one lady who I hadnt spoken to in a few months. She’s gone into a nursing home now but she still gets a call each day. Today when I phoned her she picked up, usually she doesnt. So I got to see how she was doing which was so nice. It was so nice to touch base and hear her voice. She got a little confused and kept calling me the wrong name, but I just let it go. I knew she was just confused and its part of her illness. There is a girl on placement in the office at the moment for 12 weeks, a student, she’s studying to be a public health nurse, she’s really nice. She asked me today if I’d be willing to be interviewed for her research she’s doing, I said I would help her out if I can. So over all a good day. I got home around 4 PM, ate dinner and now am going to just chill for the rest of this evening.
