Hi guys, how are you all doing?
It’s Sunday afternoon, about 1.30 as I write this. I am feeling pretty calm and content and have had a nice few days off work.
As some of you will know, I took Friday off work because I wasn’t feeling great last week. I had a nice day on my own, I drove to the seafront and had a walk, went shopping and treated myself to a McDonalds (naughty!). Usually when I am on my own I just stay home sleeping and watching tv so I wanted to try something new. Just driving to the seafront was calming, just me and my music (and my horrendous singing!).
Saturday morning I made myself, my boyfriend and my stepkids a yummy breakfast and then headed off for my favourite gym class – body balance. I love it. It’s a mixture of yoga, Pilates and tai chi. It’s so calming and the music is great too.
After that we went to a local reservoir for a long walk in the fresh air and in the evening I went for dinner and to see beauty and the beast at the cinema with my bestest chick and I’m not ashamed to say that I ordered a large tango ice-blast and popcorn and was so excited about this I was like a kid! Brownie points for treating my inner child, right?
This morning I got up early and headed to a gym class called legs, bums and tums which sounds fairly easy but is anything but! It was pretty much circuits and absolutely killed me! I came out red-faced and sweaty but feeling good.
When I got home I had a nice shower, hair wash, cleaned and tidied my house and now I’m sitting on the sofa with a brew.
I have had a few thoughts about T and therapy this weekend, but few and nothing of any real substance. I have certainly not been at all preoccupied by it or her this weekend which has been a welcomed break. I feel relaxed and calm which is a relief after some really hard work the last couple of weeks. It was becoming draining and painful and exhausting.
Is there something in the whole “leave some of the sadness with me?” Did her saying that help? Or is it a coincidence? I’m not sure.
I’ve got a busy week ahead with my two therapy sessions, my gym classes, going to the theatre with work friends, getting my eyebrows done and then Mother’s Day crap next Sunday (bleughhhhhh!!!! – for another blog) so i plan to enjoy this afternoon fully.
I hope you are all doing well and are having a peaceful mind too.
Love, TT x
