Yesterday

Planning to watch two films on my day off from work like a rebel!
Nice catch up on Jenkins life there! (Who's the famous Twitter person?)



You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you wish to make.

Some great things there Jenna, glad the interview went well. I'm intrigued by your tiramisu-based crisis.


Some things from me recently:

- Managed to get out and run to continue training for the London Marathon in April. Finished fourth in a really challenging, muddy, slippery race and beat my nemesis (all good fun, not serious) by about a minute


- Tolerated a little bit of uncertainty and R said she would talk to me on the phone soon


- Interviewed on TV, everyone said I articulated myself well and did a good job.

It goes to show, that no matter how bad things get for me, there is still always one thing which brings me happiness. I must cling to this for it is the making of me, the beginning of my resurgance and the fightback epitomised. I will defeat my demons.

I am slightly cryptic about my employment so work anecdotes are always vague I’m afraid!

Today:
- talking to Finn
- talking to Lio
- MEAN GIRLS OH MY DAYS IT WAS SO GOOD
- nice meal out

I'm trying this because I felt I need to acknowledge the positives I have and will have these coming weeks

1. After a tough appointment I had a proper long pamper bath by candlelight with a nice strong lavender smell, it's part of a gift set my mum bought me for my birthday last week which is special because it's thoughtful. I also had bath salts and fancy bubble bath. I was in their over an hour my dog keeping me company snoring by the radiator and the second grateful thing:
2. The audiobook I've been listening to and last hour of in the bath had a really lovely ending and that made me feel happy and even more relaxed.
3. Took my dog for a walk in the dark and the sky was clear with lots of stars he was a good boy and we.had the roads to ourselves not another person in sight. So peaceful and I chatted away to him and we were just with each other rather than me ranting away in my head that's been the case recently.

So despite a horrendous start self care and gratitude won

Oh well done on the epic self care! So glad you were able to find/create those positives on a tricky day.

Today:
- very enjoyable snoozing
- making my study look less like a warzone
- hopefully being helpful/supportive to some colleagues who I met up with to discuss their difficulties
- Silent witness
- ordering lots of exciting books!
