Sump Pump Done

We spent most of the day at the house. We were doing the work to get the sump pump in and connected up. Dave also did the last bit of ceiling that needed to be plasterboarded. Both jobs took all day but they got done. Having put the sump pump in the cellar shouldn’t get flooded now. Meaning it should start to dry out. We have a bit to finish for the brickwork for the holes in the walls. But the main issue is resolved.

Hopefully, it will dry out then in the future we can get it all water proved and use it. Dave wants it for his man cave; whatever that means. We had the windows upstairs open to let fresh air in to help with the drying of the plaster. All bedrooms are now finished along with the bathroom. Tomorrow we need to do multiple trips to get more plaster for the plasterer to be able to carry on.

Unfortunately, during digging out the sump pump, my forehead got hit with the handle of the space. I’m a little bruised. I brushed myself off after a little cry. Gotta get on with it. It’s my turn to stay at my grandparents tonight.

BSL Video Series: Work Signs

In this post of the series, the videos I have made are those showing the signs of the work signs I have learnt. There are hundreds of work titles out there, some may have more than one sign that relates to a certain title.

I have learnt 15 work title signs so far. I have broken down the videos into 4; showing 3 or 4 titles per video.

First up; the following video shows the signs for > Boss. Builder. Bus Driver and Doctor.

Next up is the video showing the signs for Interpreter, Nurse, Mechanic and Police Officer:

How are you finding them so far?

The next video I’m am signing the work titles of Priest, Shop Assistant and Social Worker:

This last video for this post has the signs for the work titles: Taxi Driver, Teacher and Teaching Assistant.

There you have it. The 15 work title signs I have learnt so far. Do you know any that I haven’t learnt yet? I’d love to see them.

‘Its not something I wanna do’

I’ve had periods of ups and downs with my energy. I again struggled to get to sleep and if I woke I couldn’t get back to sleep.

I had a pick me up when Dave and I went to the animal shelter. I didn’t get chased by Blossom or the Cockerel.

We watched a film together once home and shopping was done. I feel like I’m coming down with something but don’t think that’s anything but stress.

Dave and I then went to the pantomime; Cinderella. I really enjoyed it and it took my mind off things for a while. I just hope I’m coping well rather then going further down to where I need to go back on anti-depressents. It’s not something I wanna do.

Getting Closer to the New Job

I woke feeling sick and with a headache. I slept a little better but it still took me a couple hours to get to sleep. I’ve been a little sorry for myself. More so because I dreamt that my grandma died. It felt so real it was horrible to have done so. I usually just curl up in bed all day. I did do this a bit but I made myself still do some of the jobs I had to do.

We also still went to the cinema. As it turned out it helped me forget for a couple hours which took the sickness away. I’m definitely taking everything hard and stressing over it all.

I have good news that my current employer sent my reference and I’ve a time on Tuesday to go into the new place to give, hopefully the last of my documents.

Not good financially but I’ve more time on my hands next week. I’ve only been given 11 hours work. So it’ll be good in the respect I feel I need a holiday even though I’m on annual leave this week.
