Busy


I've kept busy all week.
One night working
One night at Samaritans
One night watching a recording of the radio programme I'm sorry I haven't a clue with sister Janet
One night at the cinema
One night at choir
Tomorrow I'm doing a glass ornament making course with my sister Ann
Tonight Jason and I went to a comedy one man show in Chester called Of Christmas Past which was a blast.
Thank goodness for Bluebell

  1. What a difference having one's own car makes, I'm so glad you got yours! Your enjoying your time more will ripple outward- to include your pets,friends,family,readers-then on to all influenced by those on that list.I'm more relieved and at peace after reading each post that shows your progress towards contentment, so my kitties feel that, lovely how that works, isn't it? -Mary

  2. I have kept busy all week too. It doesn't follow, as night follows day, that life feels any better for it though.

  6. I agree with Mary. The one thing to do is learn about yourself...take this time to really think about who you are...what makes you happy...how you want to live the rest of your life. You won't regret it. You already have kindness in your favor...

  8. As Auntie Mame said, "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!" You Sir, you are not starving. I am glad you are getting out and enjoying time spent with others and yourself. Enjoy.XO

  10. You do right to stay active instead of moping around feeling sorry for yourself.

    Ah, a busy week of a variety of obligations, interesting places to go, people to add to the enjoyment, and a place to raise your voice in song make the times at home with the fur family all the sweeter. Enjoy!

    Hugs and good night from the East coast!

  16. What a great week. Keeping yourself busy, even if it means forcing yourself to get going and do something when you really feel like hibernating and blubbering, is the best thing to make you feel like a paid up member of the human race again. Although a good blubber once in a while is also useful, lets out all those held-in tears that we'd drown in otherwise.

  17. Good for you John. When my husband first left me I forced myself to go out (fake it till you make it), even to restaurants with a good book. Now I love my single life (9 years and counting) but without a car where I live I couldn't do it. My car is actually like an extension of my handbag - a complete survival kit! Enjoy! Anna

  18. Bluebell has really given you the freedom to get and do 'stuff'. Is it 'hot glass' that you will be working with? We did it several years ago up in Sunderland. Great time we had and a lovely ornament at the end of it. Also did 'glass beads' with Ray Skerne down in Wales somewhere and then again with a lady in Sheffield. It's great spending time learning new skills, even if you have no use for them after the course. Have a lovely weekend John... When does the Christmas tree go up in the cottage?

  19. You've always kept yourself busy, John. If you said you'd spent the day doing precisely nothing, I would wonder if I had opened the wrong blog by mistake.

  20. Wow! That is busy. Bluebell has definitely given you more freedom which is a really good thing. Love the sound of the glass making. My mum collects glass animals and I have been buying them for her since childhood. She lives far away from me but I still send them to her at Christmas as they are small enough to post.

  21. When you start longing for a quiet night in with the fur family and a DVD, then you know you're starting to recover. Life is for living and I admire you hugely for the way you're doing it.

  22. That's a fantastic list, I'm envious. Now I'm looking for things to do in December, so I can forget all about Christmas.

  23. I attended a recording of 'I'm Sorry...Clue' in something over 20 years ago in Brighton, which turned out to be just a few months before Willie Rushton died - since when, in my view, it's never been quite as good, yet still compulsory listening.

  24. Love the sound of you being busy and in good company. Way to go! Keep it up.

  29. Good on you John, sounds like a good week. Yes a car is like freedom to come and go as you please, Do show us the glass ornament and have fun making it.

  30. Best to tire oneself out whenever possible.....good long deep sleeps are in your future.

  31. Yes, thank goodness for Bluebell. I love that line from Christmas Past.

  32. I think a couple of weeks without a car makes you appreciate having one all the more. I know that's how it was for me after my breakup. My husband had the house, car, furniture etc ... I got my son and the cats. Two years later I was the proud owner of my own car again and life was brilliant.
