‘ID for Screenwash – That Surprised Me’

I ended up having another nap this afternoon for a couple of hours. I felt better for doing so. I was falling asleep at a customers first thing. Maybe my vitamin D is low again. I’ll take a few supplements over this next week to see if that helps at all. Even with the nap, I’m feeling tired still.

I haven’t heard any news as yet on my new job. Although, I do know that one reference has been sent by a previous employer. Wednesday was mentioned last week when I went for my ID check so possibly hear something tomorrow.

One thing that surprised me today was bring ID for screenwash. I’ve been driving for 11 years and that’s the first time I’ve been ID for anything car related. Is there a new law in place that I’m not aware of?

I’ve a busy day tomorrow. Will be good when 5pm comes around I’ll have a couple days off.

We’ve Booked Rome

I was a bit disheartened when my mum told me she’s going to cancel the weekend away in December so that’s she’s around for my grandparents. I’m sad about not going but I fully understand my grandparents take priority.

It’s going to be a 6 week recovery time. I’ve given myself a headache but looking for a 4 night get away in march to enjoy for Dave and I. We’ve decided on Rome. Something to look forward to.

‘Don’t get overwhelmed and lose sight of self-care’

Back at the house. Taping and boarding. To get it done by the end of next week we will need to have to do evenings throughout the week. A full, fun packed week for us.

Fingers crossed I’ll hear about my new job too.

My aim for the week is not to get overwhelmed and lose sight of my self-care.

‘There’s always something to do’

I believe I get my worries from my grandad. When I was over this morning, he was going on about his anxieties about what’s gonna happen when he has his pacemaker fitted. Worrying about the day, grandma and appointments over the next two weeks. Because my mum and I had planned all the things we thought of yesterday, I hoped this calmed his anxieties.

We spent most of the day at the house. It took us all of that time to board the walls. Hopefully, when we’ve finished tomorrow we’ll be ready for the plasterer. Once home and cleaned up, we went out for a meal; my mum, step-dad and me. It was lovely getting the chance to spend the time together.

It’s amazing I think that once something is finished or checked off, there is always something else to do or just appears. Right time or not its something that needs doing.

Taking Some Time for Family

I was surprised when I called work to get a couple days off to help my grandparents that it happened. All sorted just like that. That hasn’t happened before.

My grandad needs a pacemaker and be bad his date; in 10 days time. Seeing as my grandad is the sole carer of my grandma he won’t or should I say we won’t let him take full responsibility for my grandma when he’s had his operation.

My step-dad is taking the day off to take my grandad too and from the hospital. My mum has 3 days off that week, I’ve been able to get the other 2. Then I’m on annual leave after a couple days work.

This is gonna be a quiet month work wise which is gonna help break up the time till I start my new job. I’m also slowly getting somewhere with getting the best for my customers. Some times I think the organisation cares about themselves. Small victories; I’ll take.

It’s now 2 days off. The house takes priority.

Negative Feelings for Work

My feelings towards my company are slowly getting more negative each time I’m there. Tomorrow is day 7 of 7 and my last for 2 days. I don’t think it helps that I have a long stretch then a small one which leads back into the long again.

I hope in my new job it will be more equal each week. Have more respect for employees too. Most of the day when I didn’t need to go to work I watched telly. I’ve been good on my no telly days. But when it’s a normal day all I wanna do is watch something. Still on Once Upon a Time marathon. I did make dinner. But other then that if I wasn’t having to go out for work I probably have continued watching it all day. Nothing else is pulling me towards it. Hopefully being my weekend off I’ll have things at the house to keep me occupied.


My Favourite Purple Dragon

The highlight of my day: finding out Spyro is coming back. I have pre-ordered the game. Better yet I didn’t have to pay a penny, thanks to my friend who gave me vouchers for my birthday present back in July. I was saving the vouchers for the house. Right now, this was more important. Getting apart of my childhood back.

I’m not one for playing games. I had a PS2 when I was a kid. I had dance games, the easy things. I completed only one game ever; happy feet, within 3 hours.

Growing up in to my teens I had the Wii even then Mario Kart and other none violent games were played. None could keep my attention. I’ve tried since with Dave’s console. Paying for a game I was interested in; Indiana Jones Lego. All thanks to my Nintendo DS. Professor Layton was another. Again, when I got stuck I gave up.

But despite that I loved Spyro. I don’t know if that was because my dad introduced me to it or because he’s a purple dragon. Spyro not my dad. How can I not love a purple dragon? I have one on my leg after all; even if it is pink and not purple.

Spyro hasn’t left my memories. Be pops into my head now and again. It would be good to try complete them this time round. I also have a Dave to help me this time.

I suppose when I said journal deeper for a goal, I never thought something like Spyro would bring memories from my past. Good ones as well for that matter. When I usually go into my past, it’s the negative ones that haunt me.
