Welcome to 2016!!

Over the last couple of months I have gone through what seems to be an amazing change. Although my mental health is a lot better than it has ever been, I still have blips.

The new job I have, I love it. I really enjoy the people I work with and I really enjoy the work I am doing. For transport to work, I am still using the bus, which means I get about an hour of reading time, which is nice. (I get to read again, get lost in the written word and I get to do reviews again.) The fact that I don’t get travel sick any more is a bonus!

The changes that have happened since I wrote last are that I now have a provisional driving license. I am due to start my driving lessons on Friday the 4th of March!  I am absolutely bricking it! Which is to be expected but I want to be passed and driving as soon as possible. With the arrival of my provisional, I got my first car! A little Ford Focus which is perfect for me. I will be driving her (accompanied until I pass by a full license holder!) to work to keep what I learnt in my lessons fresh in my mind. The need and desire to be driving with as soon as possible is incredible. I so badly want to be driving it hurts.

I will have so much more independence and I will be able to leave for work an hour before my shift rather than 3 hours to ensure I get there safely and on time. I can finish a shift and get to my daughter’s school without relying on the bus and worrying the whole time if I am going to make it on time because of delays. I can get my daughter, grab the dog and go to the beach after school. We will be able to do things during the holidays and just have independence.

I can’t wait! I need to pass my test! Expensive, but a must.

So yes, a fantastic couple of months in which I am absolutely loving what has happened with me. Christ, I am even wearing make-up. Seriously. I have never been interested in make-up. Now I just want to look nice. To look decent. I want to make an effort. Which is nice.

Right. Now I have updated you all, I am off to read some more of my book before going to bed.


Speak soon.

    • Thank you, I know what you mean though. 🙂
      It’s nice to feel positive about life again and I know it’s something not many people get to enjoy, especially those with mental health issues. So, I am embracing it and running (figuratively! Me Running! Nope!) with it. xxx
