(sorry if the format is weird, i'm on my phone)

Things had been going well with my new job, but in the part few weeks I've slowly started to be late for work and today my boss commented on it for the first time. She was really nice about it, but I was SO ashamed because it has been an issue in my past workplaces too and I honestly thought I had changed. It's setbacks like these that make me wonder if I'm really making progress or if I've just lowered my expectations. Anyway I felt like a check in here maybe would help so I wont let the guilt send of into a downward spiral.

To do:
practice 6 hymns for sunday
practice prelude
contact H, D and F
print ticket

KF check in Fri 4th Oct 10

Still on a go-slow. Fanatically reading a particular blog rather than getting on with my day and my work. Did manage to get a few small things done yesterday. And starting work at 11 am is better than nothing (and certainly better than yesterday and the day before)

today I have: 

  • Had a good breakfast
  • Had a shower
  • Invited J for dinner
Today I will:
  • Do good work for P (4 x 40 min poms) done 1/4
  • put washing on
  • hang washing out
  • Have a nice salad for lunch nope. hardly had a thing
  • Walk to high st for pots & cards. V if not. didn't bother. 
  • Smile, because you have the ability to do many things, and most importantly to be happy. The motivation will come. erm, not exactly

Just past midday and I have felt ill this morning and retreated to bed getting up to do small bits of paperwork. I am surprised and pleased at what I have done and sorted out.

Now lunch and back to bed


Today have felt rough for most of the day. I have not done exercise or walking which I feel ok about nor have I done any writing which I don't. I've spent most of the day in bed. I have cleaned tidied and sorted everything.

So prayer and reflection, bed and sleep.

Bed by 11


i am happy these last two days that I have calmly persisted in the face of adverse technology ans transactions - my usual mode is hiding my head in the sand. 


this morning I didn't focus very wel on the writing 


Ku reading the quiz, the old shoe friendship with K and her common sense. G, M and S and how welcome they make me feel. Seeing G and meeting A and being reminded of how far I have come in two years. walking in the bush with C and conversing gently. The amazing cloud formation. Feeling well.
