    Thanks BlackCoffeeNoSugar. Really appreciate it! Most of the time I feel I'm just talking into the void here, to help me think through things, so I'm always really surprised when someone comments!
    Live the good life where you have been planted.

  • There is something very cathartic about a diary on here! I read a lot of others, but don’t really feel qualified to post and offer advice so I tend to ‘lurk’n’like’ :p You’ve inspired me to make a schedule for my weekend so I’m going to potter off to do that ;)

    Wowser girl!!! I'm totally exhausted just reading your last post :eek:.... and totally in awe of your 'can do' attitude :A

    If you could bottle that you'd make a fortune.... and I'd be first in line to buy it. :D

    You're doing brilliantly. Keep on keeping on. X
    I Believe.....
    That it isn't always enough, to be forgiven by others.
    Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.

    Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery
    Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

    happiness isn't achieved by getting extra things,
    but by getting rid of the things that make you unhappy
