I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

I'm trying to think of a better phrase than drifting - I know exactly what you mean but tbh I feel more like we're recovering in preparation for the next step sorta thing

Our babysitter told us tonight she can't babysit anymore. We have music rehearsals on a,Tuesday nd she's done it for over a year now. I'm gutted cos there's no-one else. It was getting expensive but it gave me contact with adults. I'm sure it doesn't seem a huge thing but we've battled to find a reliable babysitter who is prepared to look after moo

poor darling it sounds like a pretty big thing if it's your chance to just be you and get a break. I really, really hope you find someone to watch the lovely little ones

Oh that's horrible BE   I also hope you find someone else, that contact is important.


SOLB next step with what hun?

I'm hoping to carry on with trauma and ocd therapy and training for the salisbury 10 in march in the short term.
I'm going to put in an application to study chemistry, maths, biology (and/or physics) at a level with a view to going back to uni.
I don't want to do law again and I need to prove to myself I can study before I try another undergraduate course any way.
I had attempted to go back to college the Sept before last but I couldn't cope with that and the homelessness stuff and hadn't been well enough to start with really (was too paranoid to leave the house for 12 weeks before term started)
I'm much stronger now and I've found a better college more suited to adult learners. I don't know about funding though so need to do some research.
(obviously I'd only go if Vicky and Sally agreed)

That sounds brilliant sweetie


I'm off to bed now - sleep tight all x

Morning all. Moo and I are having a quiet day, trying to catch up on housework and cuddles.
Bear, did the duvet get sorted?
Solb, that sounds like a good plan. What do you want to study at uni?

Is anyone here? Do I need to prod suspicious looking bundles again and break out the fried egg sandwiches
14/11/2012 at 12:05

I could murder a fried egg sandwich!

14/11/2012 at 12:11
Oooo breakfast!
14/11/2012 at 13:07
Do you want butter on your bread?
These are proper free range eggs. The yolks are a beautiful golden colour. Really rich and tasty.
14/11/2012 at 13:20
Please can I have mine scrambled? #fussyfriend

Ooo I love eggs like that, the colour is amazing!

I'm in Reading picking a car up with my little sister ... feel really, really sick
14/11/2012 at 13:23
What kind of sick Solb? Vomity, poorly or emotionally?
Do you like a little bit of salt nd pepper with your eggs? Moo loves scrambled egg and smoked salmon on cheese bread. I know!
The hens,are very happy. I often see them on my run.

Ooooh SOLB don't vom in Titchy's car!

Bit quiet on here this afternoon/evening


Just picked up my new pills and I'm going through my post.  The psych has referred me to the activities/volunteer organisation but irritatingly has sent the form to me to fill in my address (which she has as she sent it to me) and I have then to send it back to another department in the same building.  In other words if she'd just copied the address the referral could already be with them grrr!

Bear, I understand your frustration! Mr by eck went to pick up moo's prescription last night and it wasn't ready. The whole thing weighs over 20kg so there is no way I can do it without the car. We've nearly run out and I have been badgering everyone to have a couple of bottles ready tomorrow afternoon to pick up. Otherwise we are scuppered nd I will be very very very cross.
Bear, what kind of volunteer work do you want to do?
14/11/2012 at 19:49

That's quite a package BE - I've seen older people with massive bags at my pharamacist.  My pharmacist is good and as long as it's something I usually have they'll let me have a sheet of pills while the GP surgery catches up.


I'm not sure what volunteer work I want to do - I just think some sort of activity rather than sitting around would be good and maybe help rebuild my confidence.  I could help out with IT training, serving/preparing food etc.  Once my job has officially fionished at the start of December then I can do teaching anatomy at my old uni which would have the same benefits (more so probably) but perhaps a little more stressful but you only sign up for one couple of hours session at a time so if the first one was too much I wouldn't have to do any more.  Hopefully it wouldn't come to that though


How was your day?
