I'm feeling very down today. Life doesn't seem to get any easier and in the run up to Christmas I am getting so tired of it all. Our youngest son, Will, has bipolar, and is really struggling at the moment. I am still spending hours on the phone ... Read more

It is now two months since I have managed to pull up my socks and get back on track both with what I eat and exercise. This has happened before. When I first started Sparking in 2008 I stayed on track for nearly 9 months and then fell by t... Read more

At long last I finished digging the allotment plot on Friday. I started over a month ago and what with rain and one thing and another only managed a couple of times a week - two to three hours at a time. It is was so sticky plus I had to get out... Read more

Another busy week finished. I spent the morning digging with my sister. We had some rain yesterday so it was a bit easier to dig, but it looks as if today is the last sunny day for a while. Gallons of rain is forecast for the weekend and Easter ... Read more

The last couple of months have been a real nightmare with so much going on I just haven't had the energy to spark at the end of the day. Two weeks ago I thought things were getting easier, but it wasn't too be. The biggest worry has been o... Read more

Two more days of work and then I break for the Christmas holiday. It's unseasonably mild for the time of year. There are even daffodils blooming in some places - unheard of before Christmas. Our son has got himself playing the piano in a r... Read more

Sorry not to have been around the last week, but I lost my internet connection last week and didn't get back online until late Monday, so it had a lot of catching up to to. Today's been manic. I got a wake up call on Sunday when my BP wen... Read more

It's been almost 2 years since I lost momentum and it's been an uphill struggle since then to get back on track. I would manage for a few days, but then slip off again and during that time I regained and lost again all my hard won losses - losin... Read more

Many thanks for all the prayers and good wishes for my last blog. Phil had a word with his Dad when he arrived and I joined in a short while after. DH really doesn't understand why I was so upsset, and in a way, I am beginning to doubt it mysel... Read more
Feeling down!
Friday, July 17, 2015      12 comments

Still feeling very down because I had a real ding dong with DH over what is probably to him very trivial. I am fairly sure he doesn't have much clue as to what upset me. It is an accumulation over the years and makes me feel as if I am totally u... Read more

It has been an extremely hard couple of months but today I finished the final clean and DH helped by painting the wall at the front of the decking. We stopped off to buy 3 bags of pea gravel to finish it off first and it now looks pretty good. I... Read more

Don't know where the last couple of months have disappeared to! It's been really hard going for me and I fell off the wagon big time and found it really hard to get back on track again. Normally speaking once I get back on track and stick with i... Read more
