Afternoon *adds to the hug pile, and sneaks in some Marmite-themed yummy things* (((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))

I didn't get the job

I'll put some hugs and marmite in a basket so people can take as needed

An interesting thought, but I was thinking of something a little more local.

Bookie, did you explain to Sir Chris, why exactly he had to write 'I like cheese' or does he just think you're a total nutter?

There was only one ticket, and whilst Cake was chivalrous enough to offer it to me, I was brave enough to say no and let him do the thigh oogling instead.

I have zero motivation to work today. Precisely zilch. Bah bloody humbug. Plus this room is freezing - I'm having to wear my coat in the consultation room!

Thank you for all the hugs. I have arranged D's funeral. If you want details then just ask privately.

Caring for D is still keeping me busy. It will be later that the loss will really hit me I know. Though I know he felt loved and he appreciated his friendships and said that all told he had had a good life albeit one so short.

We are all mortal and I couldn't've stopped him from dying.

Sarah, I'm sorry about the job. I guess you're feeling prety low at the moment.

Ha, maybe it's time to open the 'Cake-Book' a book club with cake. I hope that you find something you want soon.

Adds another log to the fire.

Mousey, you are entirely right, there was nothing more you could have done for D - it is evident from your posts that you loved and cared for him so much.  I won't pretend to know exactly what you're going through, but I have been very close to someone in a very similar situation, and I can say that for that person, that yes, the loss did hit hard after all the formalities and arrangements were made, but that also you find other things to hold on to and keep going for that make it ever so slightly easier.  Hope you have people there to look after you, and sorry if that was a bit much from a random stranger in a mundane thread...  

Bookie, I'm sorry about the job  Opportunity for better things, perhaps?

More hugs and cheese (I prefer it to marmite, although I do not hate marmite)

I have mini cheddars with marmite in, might try one tomorrow.

A book club with cake sounds a great idea, I will start on my own with the book Ghost Runner about John Tarrant which I am about to take on holiday to read, a further 3 books will go and will probably end up reading others left in the apartment. I tend to only read books on holiday.
Planned for tomorrow is making some Dove's Farm gluten free sultana scones.

Mousey, thinking of you and sending you love.

Looks like a book club is forming from my group of sling wearing mummies, I hope so as I miss my old book club.

I went out last night, Mini2 was very good for daddy and then woke up hourly through the night wanting feeding - clearly still needs his mummy!

Hi guys.  I've had an exhausting week for a number of reasons.  Lots going on emotionally anyway, with the divorce so close and life still being generally unsettled.  I also had the news that a swimming friend died last Saturday and on Thursday I was told that my landlord wants me out of the house.

Then this weekend I've done my longest swim ever, with camping the day before and after so I've had very little sleep and the whole combination has left me very raw (for want of a better word) and tired.  But not to worry as its all things that can be sorted out and I will be back to normal once I've had time to process everything and sleep.

Sending loads more hugs to Mouse as she is a very special person who deserves them.

23/06/2013 at 13:44

Well done on the longest swim, Caz. I look forward to reading about it. The rest will pass.

23/06/2013 at 18:44

Ok, I get the hint Womble.  I've written a blog post about a long swim a few weeks ago and will follow it with more recent swims shortly

23/06/2013 at 21:48

How long do you have to find a new place to live Caz?

Hope you're ok today Mousey.

23/06/2013 at 22:19

Sorry that you're having a rough ride atm SC. Seems like too many people are having to deal with the rubish that life can throw at us sometimes. Makes me realise that I've had it easy until now. I know how lucky I've been.

Landlord wants me out in a month.  Thats the shortest notice she can give me according to the contract.  That on its own woudn't be a problem as I could easily move elsewhere.  The trouble is that I am in the middle of buying my own place and it is unlikely to be settled within a month.  If I move then I will need to sign another contract for a minimum of a year although I might be able to wrangle six months, or I could live in a hotel/B&B for a few weeks.

I'm trying to negotiate wth the landlord but its not easy when I have to go through the letting agency who I am sure will pass on Chinese whispers.  I'm also chasing my conveyancer for the house sale and the solicitor for the divorce to try to get the house to go through as quickly as possible.

To be honest, none of my problems are really that major. It is just bad timing when I am at the peak of my swim training and suffering badly with lack of time and energy.

I hate it when people are on their own when there are difficult things to be done. I wish I could be of some practical use.

I need to sort out some long distance transport solution. ie get my bike back on the road. I'd be fine cycling 50 miles today but i have so much else to do that I don't feel like I can afford the time. It's what happens in the future. I know the future is a long way away.
