Today’s been better. After all the stir crazy, we managed to go out in the van and park by the shore. Though we couldn’t go far between the many showers, it was good to be away from the house and in more fresh air.
I’d packed a picnic, we had soda cans in the fridge, gala pie, cocktail sausages, apple pies and lots of other good things. So, we had plenty of supplies and were about to stay out for five lovely hours of not being at home. More importantly, we had a toilet in case of getting caught short.
It was definitely a great way to go out in splendid isolation.
The pic is with my hubby, and daughter, and I was trying to wave at the camera, which is the weird hand position, and oh my God the fat! Still, also, the happy.
And what was good, I managed to work out the rubbish in my latest WIP, that’s what the board on my lap is. It’s part of a puzzle board that I was sticking scraps of paper to. The scraps were scene details and I was putting them in an order that makes sense. I also read 35 pages of “The Invisible Man” which I am finding difficult to get through.
A solid 8 hours of the day job, that rather frazzled the brain. Thankfully the commute home now consists of standing up and three steps.
So since finishing work, I’ve changed beds, sorted the shopping and done two loads, four to finish tomorrow. I’ve cleaned out and rearranged the fridge, and cooked a big dinner. And I’ve managed to squeeze some reading in – a chapter of “The Invisible Man”.
The best news of the day has been that I got a call from the psychiatrists office today. They confirmed that I am on the list to be seen, but they can’t do the meetings until lockdown is lifted because it’s a face to face thing. But after so long, I am glad to finally have confirmation that I’m on the list. Again there was a pushing for taking medication, but my experience with medication has not been good, it really did zombify me, but didn’t actually help.
Still, it’s a step forward, and that’s good.
Now I’m shattered.
So, a good day, successful and productive. But an early night tonight as I want to get some writing done tomorrow.
