I am not my best me. I am distracted and making mistakes all over the place. Lesson 1 today was about as bad as I’ve been all year.
Struggling with stress, struggling to sleep, struggling to focus, struggling to explain, struggling with niggles, but it’s half term next week. And hopefully things will be better when we come back. They have to be better.
I have some of the best friends, with patience and care and distraction. They make the world a better place. A place you can cope with being part of. I’m just sorry that I’m not managing to return the favour.
I have some of the best friends in the world.
When I turn up at their house they can do just the right level of looking after. Enough distraction so you don’t have to think. Time to talk but not to dwell. And yummy dinner.
Thank you, you are amazing.
Bake off and sewing was apparently what was needed to remain a coherent human being.
I have a finished dress with pleats and everything.
I hate October.
In which box pleats were started, Thai green curry became cheesy spinachy leeky yum, and a very brave person became my saviour.
I had previously given her responsibilities that she had rejected, but she was able to remove the spider family.
Today I learned a lot of stuff, mostly about not coping and the side effects.
It was genuinely fascinating.
This evening I just demonstrated what I’d learnt.
I have some amazing people in my life, and some awesome furry friends.
Mid afternoon and already two meals eaten by everyone.
Pets in love!
And chocolate painting started.
It will look better by the end!!
Mostly covered the children… but got a puppy by the end (don’t judge, not artistic!)
So the kids are fed, and by default so am I.
Now just need to convince one of them that 1/4 to bed time is not the time to start baking!
Not so tiny kitten, not such bitter enemies.
