Seasons

I can tell the seasons are on the change you know. Appart from the obvious like the months changed etc. I mean I can fell the effects on my mood already. I don't normally feel like this until, what, back end on October, November time? This year it's come on early.

I think it has something to do with the weather we've had this year. July, being SO damn hot and bright (which raised my mood to all new wonderful levels), followed by a wet and moody August, and a dark and damp September. It feels like November out there! (Which has me crashing down like junky two days after the last hit)

Thankfully I have an apt at the docs tomorrow afternoon. I need to sort out a few things, like my ears (which are STILL giving my grief) and my "pill" perscription needs renewing. I'll have to ask for some more Fluoxotine while I'm there and start on it sooner rather than later.

It's something I am adding to ever increasing list of failures in my life;

  • Crappy job (literally)
  • Own business doing between little and nothing
  • No money
  • Not loosing weight
  • Not living an interesting enough life to have real conversations with friends and family - which leads to distancing myself from them and then feeling lonely....
  • Dependant on chemicals to stop my mood from dropping to desperatly low levels
I know I have a lot to be thankful for, Yorkie himself was the first to point that out:

  • At least I have a job, crappy though it is, it is reducing the "no money" problem, and it's only a stop gap till something better comes along or I resolve the problems with my business
  • I have a roof over my head which no one can take away
  • I have food in my belly
  • I have friends when I pull myself together long enough to contact them or just not refuse to answer the phone
  • Loosing weight will happen when I'm happier (and I'm the only one who seems to be bothered about it anyway)
  • I have a lot going on in my life; we're getting married next year, I'm going to be maid of honour at Jac's wedding, I'm working 3 jobs, and I'm about to start a college course. And there's no harm in just LISTENING to what my friends have to say, why do I have to be the one who dominates the conversation?
  • There's no shame in getting help for a medical condition such as depression, especially if it makes me fell better!
  • Most importanly, I have a feller who loves me! Even when I feel like crap. (bless him)
Mmm... this list is a lot longer than my crappy one. But I still fell like shit. Only now I feel like an ingrate too.

It's the little things that get me down though. Like, for example, I went out last night to collect my Avon orders, and instead of the usual 9 or 10 people placing oprders, getting me about £125 worth of orders, I only got 5 orders for less than £90, which only earns me about £15 after I've paid for my supplies. That made me feel like a failure, even though there's nothing I can do about it. People are skint at this time of year - just had summer holidays, kids going back to school need supplies, etc.

And it's this kind of things that drives me crackers about myself! Knowing that I am being stupid and over sensitive about things, but not being able to STOP myself from feeling like that.

Bring on the Anti-Depressants! I'm ready for them NOW!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
