A family visit

Posted on 12th February, 2019

Had a busy day yesterday. Jezz is off for a week so we headed to Morrisons, first thing, to get fresh bakery and snacks. Around 11.20, Mother and Sara arrived and Nik turned up minutes later. We all had bacon rolls, tea, doughnuts and a catch-up. They left around 2.15pm.

I experienced a massive panic attack around the time of them leaving. I've no idea why it was so bad. Took a couple of tablets and sat quietly in my room and there was calm, after about an hour.

In the afternoon, Jezz and I watched the movie 'Ferdinand.' It was really good.

Mixed Emotions

Posted on 6th February, 2019

Yesterday was a productive day. I'd notice a leak from our Breville Hot Cup kettle on Monday so took it back to Argos (a different branch) with my scanned receipt from last year (April) and they dealt with me within minutes, no quibble, argument or delay. I thought I was in John Lewis for a moment. Had a nice cup of tea within the hour... and dry kitchen work surfaces.

I've been busy with the website, more pages of photos have been added and I've built on the 'More' page and included some more stuff that was on the original site.

The depressive mood came back into action last night. One minute fine, next minute not wanting to speak to anyone and turning the auto-lights back off in my room when they came on. At least I realised the trigger point on this occasion (I'll not talk about it in here).

One thing I can mention is that I have a few 'stop in my tracks' moments with thinking about my dear friend, David Jack. It's been almost 6 months now since he died and I still have heart-stopping thoughts of him. I miss him, a lot. 

I've definitely over-eaten today!

As January draws to a close

Posted on 31st January, 2019

It's been a busy week with the website being upgraded as we migrate over to an online website builder. I've been chatting with Deb a lot about getting her website online. Also, been catching up with my cousin Brenda in Norfolk, which has been lovely. And thanks to her, I've managed to add the family vintage photos with fuller descriptions.

Today... Jezz gave me his PlayStation 4 and that's been fun but also involved a bit of home re-organising with furniture and storage and a quick trip to IKEA earlier.

My first blog on here

Posted on 27th January, 2019

All previous blogs before this one are still viewable at this link. OLD BLOG. For the past two days, I've been working hard to get the new website up and running. I've made the switch from using Adobe's Dreamweaver to my web hosting company's own website builder. It's with Freeola and it's called InstantPro Website Builder. It's pretty good. There are some limitations but I'm enjoying the ease of its use and navigating around adding pages and images. I'm constantly referring back to the original site and replicating some pages but the best part is how the online software automatically adjusts everything to fit on all devices. The old Dreamweaver way would've taken months to modify each page so that it was compatible with a mobile view and a tablet view.
