Babs/Dinah, friend
For what it's worth: I'm fine. I feel obliged to say this because I know more than a few people were worried.

I mean, right now, I'm suffering from too much free wine and from not-having-left-the-house itis, because I'm supervising a man painting balcony, but honestly, this week I've been much much better. Fine, in fact.

Writing the post in question on Monday - not to mention the supportive comments therein - proved cathartic in the best way. After that, things picked up and I got some serious mileage done on my PhD. I've been eating better and getting back into daily meditation. Only not today because I forgot and then was interrupted by patio painter man coming. I got two minutes in, though!

Wednesday was particularly good - as I've mentioned before a hundred and seven times, I love my face to face work at the Natural History Museum, but doing it at the weekend means I don't get much schools experience. So I arranged to put in just one hour's volunteering while I was at the museum anyway, greeting school groups, talking about the building and Dippy and things, and getting them to Schools reception. Anyway, that was an hour of fantastic fulfilling energising interaction with the public, and really gave me energy for the day. Also, I got a volunteer's lunch and Honey Cake at debrief.

Then I continued to be happy and peaceful and pleasant throughout Sad Club and Sad Pub, was happy to be out with my friends, and came home to find tickets to go and see Mitch Benn next week!

sumerianhazeDaniel is most definitely at least one of my favourites. Thank you, honey.

And thank you, everyone. I am in fact doing OK, handling the stress, content with my lot and while I think I still have room for improvement, I'm back to liking myself.

Love you all.

Hurrah for doing better.

You're most welcome. Hope you enjoy it. ;o)

(Could you have a word with young Mr Benn, and, as if by magic, get him to hold his next show on a day I can make?)

>... I'm back to liking myself.

Rarr!!! ;o)

*snugs a Debi* See, I do occasionally read my flist! I'm glad to see you're doing better. Depending on the money situation (this week has been an Epic Spend. Who knew that stalking Torchwood actors was so damn expensive...) I may well be coming up to London next month, and will hopefully get to see you then. :D?

Incidentally, have you seen this? I'm torn between going 'good on the BBC' and headdesking at the British population. I know they're just the Points of View-complaining population, so roughly equivalent to people who write letters to The Daily Mail, but srsly, people, quit it. With three or four years in retail under my belt, you'd have thought I'd have no more faith in humanity to lose, really...

I see enough attitudes like that that I'm happy to say good on the BBC

Might I enquire- curious chap that I am- what this "Sad Club" is? Is it somewhere you go to listen to Nick Cave until you weep, or have I got the concept wrong?

Its where we go and play ludicrously complicated board games until someone sulks.
10th-Oct-2008 11:52 am (UTC)
it is a club in which we are all quite sad and roll dice at each other.
10th-Oct-2008 12:33 pm (UTC)
Ahhh, that kind of "sad". Might I ask whether the dice are of the 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 or 20-sided kind?
10th-Oct-2008 12:47 pm (UTC)
Depends on the game. This week they were 6, with 10-sided to keep track of levels.

Next week they would be 6, but with symbols not numbers. However, I'm going to see Mitch Benn instead.
