My Sun 9.50 holiday information came through today - must be first day of new session. I was already expecting it but now we are on count down. Need to get my lists of destinations ready for next Sunday evening. I am hoping to edge myself a little further away from home this time, although still within what I think I can drive - for those new to my diary I have issues driving anywhere of great distance and especially new places. I get panic attacks and always relied on XH to drive anywhere of great distance like to my sisters. I am hoping one day I can drive to visit her. Last years holiday I booked in a new place and was very pleased I did ok getting there. I feel I can go a little further this time. I am still looking at places that don't use major motorways etc so mainly A roads or back roads. Off to start making my list on this cold frosty morning.

It all originally started when i was pregnant with DD1 15+ years ago. My blood pressure is very low and when pregnant it got so low I would feel faint. At this point I would lie on the floor behind my desk (which to begin with caused much panic for other staff who came in to see just my legs sticking out lol) and 5 min later I was fine. At some point I must have had an episode on the main road and I would have taken the next exit. I never passed out, but since then the thought of it, especially if I know I cant get to a safe spot or turn off the road brings me into panic again. Even though I know its all in my head it doesn't stop it.
We have had a very lazy weekend and thoroughly enjoyed it. Other than the older 2 children walking next doors dog for him as he is still suffering with his foot, we haven't left the house. Plan for this evening is dinner bath and bed, and then ready for homeschooling in the morning. The first lesson for DD1 is on zoom at 9.30. Not sure if they all moaned as it was originally 8.55
We always had yorkies with a roast when I was growing up but not so much now. Think back then is because there wasn't much meat to go round so the yorkies helped fill us up! along with all the potatoes and veg.
I know what you mean about car maintenance. Seems to me they're alot more electrics than mechanics nowadays. We have one of things you plug in and it can check diagnostics. Come in very handy so fair. £2 on ebay or something. I can't do anything with it but hubby can. I'm not a car person.
Hope the power cuts stop now xxx
