Keep the Good Days Coming

I did turn to the telly today. I got some washing done in between. Instead of just watching my TV series, I decided on films. One new to me and the others, two of my favourites. Can’t beat a good Jurassic Park film.

I also did bits and bobs during them. I did do a couple of hours of work too. All in all another good day.

‘Puts me in a depressive mood’

I had a different day to yesterday, where I was more productive and then watched telly. I was more relaxed and when with the flow. I read quite a bit and ended up finishing my book. I did some job hunting, which always puts me in a depressive mood. I keep going to a dog rescue advert.

Do I want to get back to helping animals full time?

After the vets; its a lot emotionally.

This evening we had drinks and gave a tour with a mate who was with a mate we are unsure about. A story I’ve talked about before but don’t wanna be repeating. It wasn’t too bad. I’m sure I can be friends on a civil front. Not gonna be besties. We weren’t exactly that before anyways. It’s been 11 months since it all happened.

Its been a good day. Tomorrow is a new one.

‘I couldn’t sit still’

I don’t see how work expect me to stay when they give me 2 and 1/2 hours work. This meant Dave and I went to the cinema again. This time watching The King of Thieves. It wasn’t my thing really. It could be told through me not being able to sit still.

I got through it and was able to watch a film I’d seen before this evening.

When I finished work this morning that was it until Saturday evening. 3 full days spread across 4. It’ll be nice for, fingers crossed, lay ins and do sweet f.a. for 2 days.

‘What Happens to the Dog?’

We’re unable to go do this at the house now by ourselves. We don’t have the skills to do so. It’s a waiting game now. As the electrician starts tomorrow, we’ve bought the light switches and sockets needed and our plans so he’ll know what to do.

As we’ve nothing to do for the home. We decided to go to the cinema. It’s the 1st time in a good couple months since the last time.

I enjoyed The Predator. I’m not sure if I’ve seen the others. The only point I made was ‘What Happened to the Dog?’ He was running towards the boy until his dad grabs him. Then that’s it. We don’t see him again. What happens? Disappearing into thin air?

We got news from my grandad from his cardio appointment that he’s been told he needs a pacemaker. I don’t know much about the causes etc. But I’m guessing with the stress with my grandma isn’t helping. It’ll be nice to have some good news with family health for a change.

Film: Life on the Line

I like most films that are based on true events. Life on the Line was one of them. I cried, laughed and loved with all the characters. My intuition was good and o so wrong.

A job that never crossed my path or my mind before.

The film has changed that.

A newfound understanding and a place in my heart for all the men and women around the world who have lost their lives and those who brave their lives every day to ensure the power stays on.

Whether your job title is lineman/woman or not I appreciate all you do. Power is not gonna be taken for granted again by me.

A Relaxed Week on my Goals

This week I’ve tried to be more relaxed about completing my goals. I’ve gone from 4 non-telly days last week to 1 so far this week. Monday I set some ME TIME for the evening. I chose Pitch Black film then continued watching some episodes of Greys Anatomy.

Tuesday I went to the cinema to see Murder on the Orient Express. I went by myself. Didn’t have a full-blown panic attack this time. Just chest pains. I enjoyed the film even though I believe I was one of the youngest in the screen.

Wednesday I did a few pages of my Overcoming Workbook and then spent a couple hours watching some more Greys Anatomy.

Today, I did a yoga workout, did breathing exercises, completed a lesson of my BSL course. Helping me to achieve my no telly by spending my ME TIME evening reading than listening to music while doing some of my jigsaw puzzles.

Don’t worry, I’m not gonna start giving you a play by play of what I do each and every day. I just wanted to make a point. Although I did work on a couple of goals I spent time for myself doing what I wanted.

I don’t feel as mentally stressed for it. But I still feel tired. I’ve been sleeping through the night lately. Although the past couple of mornings I’ve woke to find either my engagement ring off or pillows and bedding at the other end of the bedroom. What I’ve been doing in my sleep I do not know.

Maybe it’s something I need to monitor. Be mindful of how I find myself and my room when I wake in the morning.
