Poor mum…… being wakened by an excited Bhruic is an experience and a half…. a baptism of fire…. Actually of lots of wet slobbery licks and being jumped all over!!! She is super exuberant in the morning. 😆
The dogs were a bit restless last night. It was windy out and I don’t know if they were barking at random noises or they were excited to have a visitor. To be fair I think it was more Bhru than the other two. I got up at 7 and let them out with the plan of bringing them back into our room.
I nipped to the loo as they were outside and Bhru hammers up the stairs and through mums door to make sure she wasn’t missing out on any fun. 🤦🏻♀️🤣😆
Think we were all awake after that!
I tried to go back to bed but it didn’t really work. I got up soon after and watched the 3 of them bound around in the garden with an energy I certainly didn’t feel myself.
When mum came down we decided to head to Gro-Coffee in Irvine for breakfast.
Mum got Craig a huge strawberry tart and Dad a battenburg slice. We managed to step away from the cake…. We were stuffed!!!
I’d been messaging my blog friend The Windsor Waffle and since we’d both had a Fat Friday we agreed today should be Slim Saturday. I think that could be a thing?!?! It probably doesn’t involve a Gro Coffee brunch mind you!
We went to M&S Food Hall and then into Irvine’s Rivergate Shopping Centre. There’s not a lot to see there but we had a wander and I got my eyebrows threaded.
I said to the girl with a giggle that it had been ages… and before I even finished she was saying “oh yes well I can see that…..”
Aye awright then. 🙄🤔😬
By this time I was feeling really squeamish. The shops were really hot and I was roasting. I always feel like that with a mask on and hate to feel that way when there are people that have to wear one all day for work. I don’t want to complain. We were gonna take a drive out to the beach but we ended up just heading home.
We had a lovely time!!
When mum left I took the dogs out for a walk and I feel better now but think I need a nana nap this afternoon.
This is day two of no meds and I am super proud that I’m finally going it alone. I guess I am nervous and I’m just over-analysing everything…. Worried that I won’t cope.
Setraline numbs everything. It stopped suicidal thoughts in their tracks in early 2020…. But it robs you of excitement too. Everything is just meh……. On my highest dose I could barely put one foot in front of the other to walk the dogs. It was awful… but I needed it to mellow the depression. As I got better and came down the doses I guess I have been aware of my anxiety being way more active but I can honestly say the depression has gone.
Wow. Maybe the first time I’ve actually acknowledged that.
Forgot to show you the wee wooden plaque that mum brought for me!!!
We’ll be having a lazy rest of day I reckon!!
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
