Getting there!


Well it was a very busy weekend here! Mr H has been working crazy hard (along with his trusty labourer – me!) getting the last bit of decking and other bits and bobs done, in readiness for the party next week. We still have a lot to do, but almost there – yeah!! The last week has been a real uphill struggle for me. Mr H was away all week with work and I have not been ‘feeling it’. I’m very used to him having to go away and that is just part of what life is for us. However, I don’t ¬†always cope with things overly well. Between everything that still needing doing for the party and Mr H being away and me not being on top of my game, I have felt really low. But the good news is that he was home for the weekend and we were able to do a lot of what needed doing and just spending some time together was wonderful, it all feels do-able now!

So I’m interested to know what you all got up to at the weekend and how you feel about things. Do you get overwhelmed or are you a ‘take it all in your stride’ kind of person? Leave me a message on the actual blog. Looking forward to hearing from you 😀

    Hey Kate, I love reading your blog. Thanks for taking the time to write it. This weeks one was very personal – so I had to write a comment back. Our whole lives seem like a mad rush all of the time and I do worry that it’s all passing by too quickly!! I am the sort of person who frantically rushes around – but finds it hard to say how I really feel! Bit like a duck swimming. Calm & gliding on the top and then frantic legs underneath! I get a bit overwhelmed at times but tend to let that out by being grumpy. i do feel like I’ve lost a bit of sparkle!! Hey Ho. I try and be forever grateful for what I have as I know there are many people in worse situations than me. It is hard though! Thanks again and I look forward to the next one. xx ps enjoy the party, what are you celebrating?

      Hey sue so pleased you are enjoying the blog! One of the things I find hard about writing the blog is that I don’t want people to think ‘she’s got a good life what’s she’s got to complain about?’ but that’s the point, each persons situation and feelings are relative and valid. I suffer with depression and have done for most of my life and people’s lack of understanding for it can lead to feeling invalidated. I’m going to do a whole blog post on that subject some time in the future. I reckon your sparkle is still there Sue, it just gets a bit lost with all the day to day stuff! I have really good days and then not such good days but I always know good ones will be on their way again. Thank you for your encouragement with the blog. Take care x x x

    I am usually a get on with it ‘one day at a time’ girl! But having not been abroad properly before doing a cruise last week I was very land sick once back home. Feeling dizzy and swaying as if still on the boat. The time difference was only one hour but really noticed it when changing back. I would do it again. The Fjords of Norway are amazing. You are amazing Kate keep going. X
