We've been asked to reflect on the past year for the Writing for Recovery group so here goes. I also managed to begin my entries on OpenDiary.com. This was because my brain was so full, and it was an outlet for all those thoughts. I need an overspill space. Not only because I have too…

    What a roundoff! Hannah had to go to the hospital in Skye - Gallbladder again. Came home and had to go back to Dr. Grays. They are finally going to do something and take it out. She's in agony.  Chris has flu and is signed off for a week.  I'm left with a hacking cough…

    The floor tiler has nearly finished. I had no idea of the disruption. Ideally, we should've all moved out for 10 days. We couldn’t go home until 7pm one night and had to hang about in town and go for a meal out. That was another £60. Mavis, Duncan and Hannah and all the dogs…

    Doors on. £500 labour, 2 of them for one day. A giant fish tank arrives. Hannah needs to clean it out. David is wanting £500 for it, but he'll have to have the cash monthly. Julian's blood sugar is still 17, so he phones NHS24. Was on hold for about 30 minutes. No nurses are…

He's going to be homeless on Christmas day. I'm worried sick. I've been looking at hotel prices for Edinburgh and&h...

    I woke up at 1.30 am then nothing until 6.50 am. This is unheard of. Got up and then slept some more between 10.30-11 am. Persuaded Ju to get up and take the doors off for the joiner arriving next week. He took 2 doors off and declared he was knackered. He thinks he can…

    I'm shattered today. Literally fell asleep at 3 pm. Duncan's bike has gone. He got £400 for it. Chris is in his new house so he's hemorrhaging money.  Went to the new house yesterday and met up with Callum. He's recovering from a cold and then just texted today to say his girlfriend has Covid&hel...

    Just taking a minute to get on here and breathe. Had my job appraisal today - all is well.  I had a class 3-4 pm and 2 students disappeared without telling me they were leaving. Chris is getting his keys tomorrow. Darren is getting his keys tomorrow too. Hannah is having a clear out - again. More...

    Absolutely knackered! I didn't get to sleep until 3 am and then could've quite happily stayed in bed for the day. Was mopping the kitchen and doing 3 loads of washing in the middle of the night. Got up at 10 am, mucked out, moved fencing, filled water troughs, and filled 6 hay nets. Washed…

    Julian has an appointment at Aberdeen hospital. I left early for work. So much to do. One of the site assistants said I was too early to be in the building. I've been going in early for months.  Hannah is at home online college. My class all passed their assessments. Got home in time for…
