Since last post I written on a D.I.Y. retreat, I plan to create another one sometime before December. My next ones after will be the New year sometime and when ever I feel I need to do one, which will be at least every couple of months.
I know creating these compared to just having time-out, I really benefit from these because of creating a schedule of some kind. Knowing the benefits I get from doing these will come in handy when there are times I cannot afford a holiday, or simply on a day trip.
I had my tooth out finally, a couple of days later from when I unfortunately learnt of my cousin and her husband’s death. I made sure that I did nothing on the day my tooth was removed as advised, but also the day after. I allowed myself to sleep when needed. The tooth came out successfully, but I continued taking my paracetamol as I did have some discomfort from it. I was surprised that I did not feel self-conscious about this missing tooth, compared to the tooth itself, which I was. I go back later for impression to be taken and then back to a later appointment for fitting of this false tooth.
I have closed my Linkedin account as I felt my opinions using this remained the same, after trying it. In no way did I feel Linkedin helped me towards searching, or getting a job. Suggestions of jobs were mostly nothing I was after and when they were, they were not anywhere near me. I know I want to move, but the distance of some of these jobs were impossible. Searching for jobs I used my usual ways and at no point did I need to use Linkedin. As for job I did get, see below.
I heard from one of the two jobs I last applied for and I went for a job interview, which went well and they were impressed with me. There were more to be interviewed though that day and on another day the following week, but they did say when I would know by, whether I got the job or not.
They made my interview accessible to me, by making sure they spoke to me while facing me and not covering their mouths and I felt comfortable with them and hopeful that my disability would not be an issue with them. I learnt the day I was expecting to know, in the evening and I got the job. This is such a relief for me. The next step was filling in a form with medical details and I am awaiting on a further email to confirm when I can actually put my notice in. So when I am back to blogging next year, I should be able to give you a quick update on how things are in the new job.
Again, like with my job before, I won’t be exactly saying in detail where I am working, other than it’s another cleaning job. It’s in the next town from me and I hope that if another position ever came free in a morning, that I would also be able to apply for that too and build up my hours. Until then, I need to be flexible and cover mornings when required, so my pet business plans are on hold. But I don’t mind this and I still plan to continue with my pet study course, as it could still be useful in the future.
As you know when I last gave an update about my hand, I did not get all my results back. This meant I only knew about my blood test, but not the x-ray.
I continue to take my vitamin D supplement, which I will continue to do until spring arrives.
I have finally received my x-ray results back and everything is fine, so I did not need any follow-up appointment. I still have some discomfort, but it is much better than it was and it doesn’t cause much of a problem.
I still and will continue to volunteer for Ashfield Play forum, while I can, but I have called it a day at LEAP (REBOOT.) I decided to finish earlier than planned from due to family bereavement. But also, if I can, I plan to get involved in any way I can to help in regards to bringing down the speed limit on the road, that killed them. I have written to the person concerned at a Parish Council, who has been trying for the last 14 years to bring the speed limit down, so it’s all the same, as it varies at different parts of this road.
I have my further driving lessons to come, since passing theory and hopefully I will have more news on how I got on with this, next year.
Last post of 2017
This will be my last post of 2017 and I will see you all in the New Year.
I need to take time out and get my head together. During this time, I will rarely be checking for any comments on my blog, but when I do, I will publish and reply at times.
As for my emails, I am not going to be available there much. I don’t know how often I will check them, so please bear with me. (I will be activating some kind of automatic away announcement.) As for my close friends who I see personally, I suggest you message me via Facebook, for a quicker response.
My Christmas tree I still plan to put up, which it is going up in memory of my aunt Mona. These who have followed my blog for some time will know it did not go up last year, as it was a very difficult time prior and leading up to her passing away on New Years Eve. When New Years Eve approaches, it may be difficult again, on top of the above and bring unexpected emotions, but it will remain lit day and night when I am at home.
Stay safe everyone and I will see you some time next year.
