My life/books I’ve finished
A fairly positive week despite the worries I mentioned last week. My social worker did come on Tuesday to help us as best as she could regarding this money issue the local authority put on us where we had to pay a large amount of money every week towards my support workers salary. We filled out our appeal forms with her and in her opinion things look good in our case so at the moment all we can do is keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
I feel I have done a lot of reading in the past week with me managing to get two books finished and I’m already half way through another one 😀 I have decided to cancel some of my library book orders because I have decided I want to have time to relax and read the books I’ve already got rather than always rushing to get books finished all the time to make way for new ones. And I think I’ve mentioned before that I really dislike returning books to the library that I haven’t read 😛 One of my support workers also couldn’t come and see me this week due to car problems and I can’t say I wasn’t disappointed because I was looking forward to a catch up and for the first time ever I was actually looking forward to slimming world and seeing how I’d done whilst on holiday, and I can tell you now that I wouldn’t be surprised in the slightest if I’d put on a ton of weight 😂😂😂 Yup my diet whilst abroad was naughty at best ridiculous at worst but we did do a lot of exercise so that will have to be taken into account too but most people have been telling me that it was a holiday so it was meant to be enjoyed in all shapes and forms even with food.
I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before and I don’t mean to sound boastful when I say this but I’ve been really pleased this time coming back from holidays didn’t bring any post holiday depression, which is something I have had in extreme in the past. I’ve also mentioned before that my dad had an abscess and while the antibiotics he’s been on have helped reduce the pain and swelling, the dentist has told him he needs to have a tooth removed which he’s really not happy about, but health comes first and I just wish for the best for him. When mum and I got off the train near our hometown dad when he came to pick us up looked so sick and unwell and I know that in the past coming home from an amazing holiday to dreary weather and dad not being 100% would have made me feel awful. Like I say I’m not saying I’m safe from those feelings now but I have done everything I can to put things in place to look forward to around my home like my support workers, crystal sessions and I’ve even gotten in contact with another lady who used to support me in the past but fell ill due to M.E. She earlier in the year got in contact with me again to try to arrange out days out again but we didn’t have the time because I was in college 4 days a week and had my other support workers, but she has said I can remind her again about our support in mid August so I’m keeping my fingers crossed because that would be something to really look forward to. 🙂
Books I’ve recently added to my TBR
Mayan Blood by Theresa DaLayne
I managed to get a free copy of this years ago and haven’t done anything with it since. This almost definitely is a travel read and more fuel to my love of mythological fantasies! 🙂
The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho
A much looked forward to philosophical classic that I didn’t have space to take put from my college library before term broke up 😛 There have been so many good things said about this book though and to me it also seems like a perfect book to take on travels because of the journey vibe of the plot. Soon…
Courting Darkness by Robin LaFevers
Even though my library has the whole trilogy, I haven’t yet read the His Fair Assassin books but I desperately want to! As always with me it will be a case of finding space on my overcrowded library TBR which I’m going to concentrate on getting down at the moment. All these books in this new series and the previous sound like exactly like what I’d like to be reading now and unless the previous series turns out horrifically bad, this book is staying on my GR TBR 😉
