I haven't been around in far too long and it's been for all the right reasons for a change, mainly I have been out in the big wide world (yes these new meds are ace). Also I have been working hard this past December. I actually have quite a bit to blog about for instance I haven't exactly been getting on with my Mum this past year or so and I was invited over for xmas lunch and my brother M was going to be there as well but instead of crawling into the wall space and saying no I'll be ok. I bit the bullet and said yes, I didn't go mad on presents this year I brought nice things not too expensive just things I thought people would appreciate. So I turned up with my Dad and another brother N slightly anxious I should add....
A wonderful day was had by all, it really was an awesome day me and M got on he actually cooked the meal was really nice, my Dad behaved himself and didn't get too drunk it was nice seeing my Granddad and it was nice everyone being together there didn't seem to be the underlying tension that there is normally. Mum said she had a really lovely day, the first time she hasn't cooked in years so this probably helped and I think everyone just enjoyed it even me =]
We came back at about 830pm and I just chilled with the kids, they had had a stocking with plenty of catnip filled goodies which were getting full attention and generally keep them out of trouble.
Boxing Day I had the most relaxed day I have had in a long while I did so little its untrue, which if you realised how much nervous energy I can often have is blessed relief. I had received several books I had wished for xmas and proceeded to finish one and start another on Boxing day just sitting there with a good book some chocolates and me it was awesome.
I haven't been half as vocal as I normally would be on everyone's blog I have been doing a lot of lurking just lately but I am in the process of really sorting things out now.
No new year's resolutions but as from the 2nd of January I will no longer be drinking smoking and I intend to exercise this illness has led me down a route I have struggled to fight and from now on the fighting back starts so Cyclothymia bring it on biatch
Happy NEW YEAR everyone
