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

Tomorrow I have so much cooking to do while moo is at nursery. My concern is he will be poorly and not go, or get sent home for being poorly

Was all changed and ready to go running with a group tonight but thought better of it.  Thursday night is, for some reason, one that generally only the faster runners go to so it puts me off.  I just have to have someone slower than me there or I just feel I'm doing rubbish - and there aren't as many of them around as I'd like.  Decided that as I've got a day off tomorrow and it's looking good weatherwise will aim to get out for a run on my own.  Don't know if I'll make it but even having the intention to is a positive step as lately any time I've not been at work I've just not wanted to get out of bed.  Of course it's the same if I am at work but I have to get up.

Good luck, LR - it should be beautiful tomorrow

Good luck LR, I like Christmas tree spotting when I run at night
Hi Frodo how are you hen
Sleep time finally. Zzzzzzzz

Thanks Frodo.  Enjoyed the 'kitten' therapy.  Maybe that was the breakthrough!

Bah humbug!  I always moan about Christmas decorations appearing in November.  Trouble is my excuse runs out after tomorrow.

Good luck for tomorrow LR and By Eck
Kitten therapy Frodo

I out positived the voices today. Am absolutely shattered but I won a massive battle. I've never managed to keep smiling and positive all day while they've been raging before. They were really vicious ... and reeeeally impotent! (I can't do it again tomorrow I'm too drained but I don't mind, so thrilled I bought a whole day back from the voices with positive coping strategies)

Good for you SOLB.  Keep battling on.

Morning All

Bricki - the name is basically because i looked like a builder who was building the new 6th form. That doesnt mean i wasn't a hellraiser in school though

i published a new piece on my running/depression blog last night

basically saying we need techniques and constant refinements to stay at our best in life.

Wow Bricki that's a heck of a way to acquire perspective! I like the way it's translating (though I'm sorely tempted to respond in a dreadful German accent )

I quite like the origins of Bricki that's cute

I was never massively popular in school, I was a bit of an ugly duckling.

I have a meeting with Sally today (my CPN). I have no OCD progress to report. I have stopped the food wobble from undoing progress which is great but I didn't make any 'proper' meals, though I have the ingredients for two recipes, and I haven't moved any cup handles on the draining board from their military style uniform direction.

I'm going to ask Sally if we can swap breaking washing up rituals for trying to swim I just don't feel ready for washing up ... though if Sally feels it is a cop out I shall of course persevere *game face*

3:43 today.
Sleep time soon.
Solb, could you play washing up with Solbsismini and her toys to get used to the idea before trying it on your adult stuff
30/11/2012 at 09:35
Ooo thats a brilliant idea by eck I hadn't thought of that. Definitely worth a shot mini would love the excuse to play with some water and I'm sure the tea set could do with a wash ... especially if we were planning a tea party with all the toys I might have to stretch to baking some tiny cakes and scones n stuff.

Thank you - The german accent was very funny at the time (and awful)

its amazing how Bricki has stuck with me - everyone calls it me now.

30/11/2012 at 09:40
let me know how it goes. How old is mini? I have used play with the children to help me work on the stuff j found hard. Are there lots of rules surrounding washing up? ( PM me if you would prefer)

Bricki, the audit team I worked for had an auditor out in Mumbai during that time too. I pulled many late nights trying to find him somewhere safe, get information on what was happening and keep his family updated. Fortunately he had lived in India and Pakistan for many years before coming back to England and was incredibly well looked after.
Your blog is very thought provoking, thank you
30/11/2012 at 09:48
Yes a ridiculous number it takes somewhere between 2 and 3 hours to wash up. No I don't mind being open here

Solbsismini is 4 (5 in April) and Solbsisminimini is 18 months

Haha it has evolved, what better way to celebrate your 29th than to have a Mad Hatters tea party with the minis and their toys

Wish you were a year older SOLB, I found a perfect card!

I thought you were older than me Solb
