2015 (written 23 July 2015):
Yesterday was a busy day and full of mixed moods. I’d only had a few hours’ sleep and was up and doing by 3am. This is not good 😦 I keep telling myself, ‘This won’t last forever,’ but am starting to whine, ‘But how much longer?’
My mother and I tackled the compost at the allotment and took five builders’ buckets to the dump. I just don’t have the space to keep it. It won’t go to landfill – the council will rot it and treat it and then sell it. Well, their contractor will …
While we were in the garden I noticed that I have baby tomatoes! This isn’t the greatest photo in the world but if you look closely you may see them:
I’m really surprised that the outdoor tomatoes have fruited before what’s in the greenhouse (which has no door but does have a selection of indoor and outdoor plants). Mother Nature is full of mystery 🙂
The Crisis Team came out to see me in the afternoon and I’m very grateful for their input as I was really struggling to focus. I now have some simple instructions to follow ’till my sleep gets back to normal. I’ve to keep a sleep diary to show the Dr H (the Psychiatrist) next week, read if I wake up too early and use the slack bits of the day for knitting. I’m feeling more in control now there are fewer decisions to be made as I go through the day.
My next knitting project has grown from:
I’m enjoying working on it. There’s something so comforting about the repetitive movements and having yarn running through my hands. It’s nearly as good as gardening!
