Time out- not always useful............

Having time off work leads to plenty of time to think. Sometimes good sometimes not.

Such a variety of happenings since I was last at work  just over a week ago:
  • White water rafting
  • Pamper days
  • Girly days with Julie
  • Deep sadness at the loss of a friend
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Taking time to consider my future
  • Supporting a friend whose sister may not survive
  • Criticism about my treatment of Phil?
All this whilst trying to fill the hours with "normal" things.

So it started on a high and slowly I began to sink.  Events just took me there.
I have to lift myself again and back to work tomorrow. I know I will be fine. But I do have to think more about what lifts me up and what drags me down.

Certainly the criticism from a friend of Phil's has affected me more than I want to admit. I was angry at first but now I just think he is one of so many who have no concept of what my life is like. And I feel sorry for him .........

Next week will be a mixture too:

Three days back at work then:

Manicure and pedicure ready for Saturday
Elaine and Jims wedding
Scrapping with Sam
Liverpool with Carol Ann and Sara
Joyces funeral at the same place where my Mums was

Then back to the usual routine which if I am honest is probably better for me.

Plenty of time to think is not always a good thing......................................................


  1. So sorry for the lose of your friend. I am going to a service today for a friend of mine. Good luck with your busy week. And If the person telling you that you are doing a bad job has never been in your shoes just tell them to go blow. Or something less nice. Thanking of you and you are doing a great job.

  2. Hello Darling

    You had a right mixed bag of emotions while you were off didn't you? Wish I could give you a big hug.

    Love you
