Today is Sunday 2nd May

Good morning!
It is a beautiful sunny day and things outside are looking very positive.
The trench dug to bury the cable is now being filled in and the little topknots of grass will be put back in place, so you’d never know.  If anyone asks what the pole’s for, we are ready with a quip that it’s my latest exercise equipment for pole dancing. If they believe that, then they are madder than we are!
It was a long, tiring and frustrating day yesterday, but Hubby is in good spirits today and pleased with his efforts. I’ve been supplying him with cups of tea or coffee to keep him hydrated and all being well, he should be tuning in this afternoon.

Curry for dinner today, and the smell is wafting through the house. So much better than paint! While Hubby was digging outside, I was ‘picking’ indoors and have managed to get the paint off the coving that escaped the masking tape. I’m pleased with my efforts too because it means we won’t have to paint it!

Although not official weigh in this week as I’ve taken two weeks out, I’ve stayed the same and sent an email to my SW consultant. Being permanently at the top end of my target parameters and not being able to get close to target, it was getting me down BIG TIME, so  I’ve decided to stick with my original target as set in May 2019.  It’s a good weight for me, I’m comfortable with it and I’ve been hovering around it for the past 6 months.  This is still fives stones lighter than I was twenty years ago. I don’t think I will be returning to group meetings when they restart, even if we’ve had our second jabs. Hubby has his on the 9th, I booked it yesterday, so hopefully mine will be in a fortnight,  but I’ve got very twitchy being with unfamiliar people since the pandemic took hold. Casual chats in the shop, street or with our neighbours I can handle as it’s on my terms, and I have space around me.  I suffered with panic attacks in my teens and have had a couple in my adult years, so I don’t want to go down that route again.

Hope you are enjoying your Sunday. Take care and keep safe everyone.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Wise choice di! About not going back to group meetings. I am doing it alone now, currently not in SW but may go back, we’ll see, but for now I am doing it alone, as I know what to do. XX

  2. I hope you feel safer presently Di! It seemed to me that you enjoyed the darts matches at the pub and other social activities (on your terms of course) before Covid. But I understand fully. In fact, I was going to write a small post today about that. Great minds think alike! Have a beautiful day!

    • Thanks Melanie. I do miss my darts night out but it’s doubtful the league will restart anyway as several of the participating pubs and clubs have closed or up for sale.

  3. I think this pandemic has been very negative and scary for lots of people, Di. We are all feeling vulnerable and it isn’t over yet. I’m glad your weight has stayed on track.

    • Thanks Roberta. I’m a people person, so get on with everyone, but large groups or crowds make me nervous just now, so I’d rather avoid them if at all possible,

    You are doing so well with the diet , you need to give your self more credit. I hope Hubby is up and running and that you the ariel is standing proud.
    As for not feeling good around strangers I think a lot of us feel the same….I certainly do 💜💜💜

    • I’ve maintained my weight pretty well but it has been a struggle and I’ve been feeling down about it. I’ve always tried to be honest, to myself especially, and my food diary is a godsend. My SW consultant is onboard and very supportive, confirming that she is resetting my target to my original when I signed on. This has relieved so much pressure that I feel I can deal with it better now.
      The aerial is up, and we have lights and static. Just need to tune in now, which is a tomorrow job as Hubby is shattered. I think so many holidaymakers coming into the town are making me more nervous than normal because of the present circumstances.

    I understand your hesitation to mingle. I’ve had my vaccinations and am protected but I still don’t feel very safe going out and about with the public… Glad the antenna project is completed and your husband is ready to get started on his new hobby!

    • I’m OK with people I know or those we meet up with on our walks, but both of us are avoiding crowds and strangers. Shopping can be unsettling and more than once it’s been an extremely unpleasant experience and we’re glad to get home.
      Hopefully he’ll be up and running tomorrow!
