I'm glad u enjoyed your time away despite the difficulties, a break from the usual can be a really good thing.
The garden's not doing very well at the mo', some plants have died - jasmine, borage & forget-me-nots. I think I got the soil/sand mix wrong - too much sand so the soil retains too much water & the roots rot. I spotted a strange bee/wasp on the sunflowers the other day & I've been trying to identify it. If I see it again I'll get a pic & send it too the Bee group thing I've joined online (Conservation Trust? I forgot...duh!)
I've got some willow fencing to give us a bit more privacy but will get my son to help me put it up - he's home for a week in a fortnight.
Work at the shop is going well, the others are much more friendly now. I'm covering for hols this week so it's really tiring & I'm having probs getting to sleep, but Coke seems to be the problem. I'm sleeping better since I stopped drinking it.
I've been cycling everywhere, but I'm so tired I'm going to get a monthly bus ticket and take it easy for a while.
I'm still awaiting my enhanced DBS so I can start cleaning at the school. I have the occ health assessment next week. It's face to face, which is much better than a phone assessment. If all goes well, I hope to start work within the month. I've also got the chance of a few hours weekly domestic cleaning thru an agency. I'll be able to come off benefits then & claim tax credits.
My cpn is scaling back her visits, so things are looking very positive.
I've a few worries which I can't do much about so I'm trying not to dwell on them. My ESA is being reassessed - I got the form filled in this week, my CPN will do a supporting letter and send it off for me this week.
I've started an online IT course which is pretty flexible, I think I'll enjoy that.
I've been in bed most of today (got a cold as well - woe is me lol) and slept really deeply.
