It’s the weekend

My white pom pom rabbit, now has its pink bow.

Pom pom rabbits. The white one now having a pink bow

I still have not got round with my other bunny. (A lop eared bunny.) Poms poms are made, but it’s motivating myself to shape them by trimming, glueing together, etc.. I seem to have settled with dvd’s.

And that is where this weekend lies. I just plan on watching dvd’s this weekend, with a little bit of housework in between today. That’s my weekend. Dvd’s mainly, with ocassionally looking out my window and see what bird activity there is. I have been observing two pigeons in particular these past two weeks, getting rather matey. If you know what I mean. ūüėĀ

I plan to purposely go to the supermarket again just to get a couple if things after the incident I blogged about here, in¬†How are deaf people managing communication-wise during the time of Coronavirus? This is my way of saying to my anxiety, you ain’t going to make me worse after that. I felt I couldn’t leave it until my next shop and so when I went to the shop today, it was to treat myself.¬†

And speaking of dvd’s. My neighbour bought some more up, as well as some cd’s. I am still yet to watch my other pile from them. Lol I am busy in this department still. ūüėĀ

I hear the weather will be nice this weekend, so I think an hour or two is called for sitting in the garden, rather than my flat, having a break from dvd’s and feeling the air.

As you know, since Tuesday, I am back cleaning in my evening job. But rather than evening, I am in a much earlier time, as my shift starts in the afternoon. This continues like this, while we are as a country, affected by this virus, following our Government guidelines.
Going to work, or when I get my groceries twice a week is the only time I go out to walk. I am in my flat otherwise.

It is just me working in the afternoon, cleaning. Another cleaner is in at the morning. Some things we both cover on our shifts, while other areas are given for each of us to do. Only certain areas are covered with only certain amount of staff in, who are restricted to where they can go in the building. It’s strange not seeing my other colleagues who I would normally see in my shift and its weird coming in at this earlier time. But while the country is where it is currently, I am glad I am in at this time, as I think my anxiety would go further through the roof, walking home in the evenings.

There is a possibility of even more extra hours at my workplace. But I have declined those. I am happy to do the extra few I am doing now, but I feel if I do any more than that, than I feel I am putting myself even more at risk. So I have found my limit and my comort zone. Anything more, I won’t do.

I looked for rainbows on my first day walking to work and I have been looking each day after for anymore. I seen 12. One being my neighbour displaying theirs, after I printed one off for them.

My anxiety is the main issue since I have commented in earlier posts about that, since being on lockdown. The thing is, I seem to be good not showing it regardless how I feel. It’s not something I deliberately do, so I put this down to one thing, being a survivor and how it has been said to me by a counsellor in the past, because this is all I have known from childhood with the different things I have had. I just get through it somehow. But please don’t ask how. I don’t know the answer. It’s just something I have done from a kid.

Do you seem to be good at hiding anxiety?

As I have said in an earlier post and I think in my comments, my anxiety starts before I go out to walk and I have had it through my shift too. Then it’s still there till I get home. My throat tight by that point I notice when home. But thankfully it starts to ease before I eat, otherwise I am know to not be able to swallow my food, meaning I can’t enjoy what I eat.

I am hoping my anxiety disappears in the end when going out, but being in a different world, I start to wonder. But my anxiety has decreased a little at work from second day back, if no where else.

What’s your weekend?

Also, do you get paranoid at the thought if you get a sniffle, or more, you wonder what the other‚Äôs will be thinking around you? Even though you know it’s not the virus.
Like for example, while writing this, I not had long something to eat and the sniffles came. I am at home, so need to worry about anyone else, with it just me. But if I had been having a hot meal out? Sniffles only lasted 5 minutes or under, after I finished eating a hot meal. But just using as an example.
The other example was my first day back at work. I got the sniffles about half way walking to work, because the air is cool and I am wearing a scarf to take that coolness off. I felt really sniffly, when I arrived. But it gone in about 10 minutes, or under, with being I was in the warmth.
Hayfever season soon for me, so itchy nose with sneeezing possibly at times and you may remember what unexpected issues I had last year, how it triggered my asthma. So I will be paranoid about coughing, if I get it like last year. Although, with being dairy-free, I should find I do not have phlegm issues like last year, which I noticed improvements last year when I had a cold.
I just started my tablets for my hayfever ready a few days ago, in preparation so it is in my system before I start showing the signs in May. But last year, it caught me out with it starting much earlier. I have had tiny symptoms showing odd times in past month, but not to affect me.

‘Coffee promiser’ texted me two days ago, to see if I was ok, with all this Coronavirus going on. I answered back, but just because I have doesn’t mean I am going to keep the ball rolling and keep texting myself out the blue. She can do the chasing. (For those who are new and not aware while I call this so called family member coffee promiser, you will have to just look for that answer in last years posts. They are there somewhere, the answer to that. I am not going back on this story again here.)

A rather different weekend style of post to what I usually write. So if you have read all through, then thank you for reading.

Last day of March

It’s the last day of March and it doesn’t feel real. From since last week, while not working in either jobs, I have been forgetting what day it is. Thank goodness my phone works to tell me the day. I know I forget, but my goodness, forgetting what day it was practically every day, from first day I wasn’t working. It felt a little extreme for me forgetting so badly at this level. But I bet I am not alone.

Well… from today, things change a little for me. I will be working from today in my evening job, after they asked me if I was fine with this. Although it won’t be be in the evening I am working, as my shift will start in the afternoon, for four hours. I am glad while things are as they are currently, that I am in earlier. So as I will be doing this, means I will get my walk in while I am at it. I never went out for a walk otherwise, than when it was to the shop twice a week for groceries.

Since the lockdown where we could only go for essentials, health reasons, work if it absolutely could not be done at home and just for exercise while observing social distance, I have anxiety on the idea of going out and when I am out walking. This anxiety being the cause of how other may behave in a negative way, rather than the virus. So I hope by going to work Monday to Friday again, that my anxiety will go.

As I was writing this post, I received a text from my counsellor. She wanted to check up on me and see I was doing ok in this awful time we are all at, at the moment. So a few text chats back and forth have been happening this morning.

Chit-chat it’s the weekend extra

Well… here’s an extra post for you this weekend. ūüėĀ This post is in addition to the one I aired this morning. So I hope you enjoy reading this extra post and commenting here too, as well as at my earlier post aired today. ūüôā

I realise I need to stock up on my own music dvd’s, after watching the neighbours collection. I have forgotten just how much I like my music this way. The last time I had a music collection to watch was when I had VHS tapes. Remember those?

I intend to buy the following as a start to my music dvd collection at some point, second hand, when things settle:

  • Queen Live at Wembly
  • Bon Jovi Crush
  • Take That The Circus Live

These were in amongst other music dvd’s that my neighbour lent me. I played in particular Bon Jovi, on more than one occasion. It felt like having my own concert. I was dancing away at times.

And just when I thought again I must have watched all of the neighbours collections after dropping the others off at his door today, while observing social distancing, I have a few more dvd’s to watch. ūüėĀ

He has also lent me some cd’s. They are all by the same group called, Apocalyptica. I have never heard of these until now.
As he knows I like 2 Cellos, he thought I might like to listen to these. I am playing one now and I am enjoying it.

What’s your preference when it comes to listening to music? Watching, or listening? Or is it both?

You will remember in¬†My views for today that I contacted my mum’s social worker. She got back to me the next day to tell me her case was closed. This was because as there is no plan of discharging her yet because she is not well enough, means she is not able to support her. When her case was closed, I do not know long ago this was and I don’t intend to ask, because I know I will be fuming. I expect it was closed some time ago. But what happened to keep updating me when necessary that I gave permission for? She pointed out the ward are aware of her finances etc. That’s the only part I don’t have faith with on the ward, due to what was coming through mum’s mailbox, before I stopped playing my part, as it was obvious they had not been informed. But as I said to mum last year, that final time I seen her. I’m done. It’s her mess.
There has supposedly been another referral made, but she’s unsure of the details. Someone would contact me in the future, as this social worker is leaving. With also this Coronavirus, means also priorities have changed.

It doesn’t surprise me that mum is not well to be discharged and although I know I have not seen her since November, I still don’t see that situation changing. It’s all down to my mum. I am watching from the sidelines still. I have to continue doing what I need to do to keep myself well and safe. It’s not what I ever envisioned. But this is, what it is.

It’s the weekend

I finished my book last night, that I mentioned in last week’s¬†It’s the weekend post. I found it gripping all the way through. But although the book had an ending and you knew who the killer was, it was rather an abrupt finish. But I still enjoyed it.

Today will be dvd’s, after some household chores.
I also plan to repot my Peace lily, as roots are showing outside the pot.

Tomorrow, I think I will do a bit of colouring too. Then a dvd later in the afternoon, to early evening time, while pampering my feet and if I feel like it, I will paint my nails.

What’s your weekend plans?¬†

Just another chit-chat post

So it was my usual morning work, then straight back home.

I went to shop for a few things, just before lunch. While there, I thought I see if there were toilet rolls. Nope.

I was happy to see from my window this morning, when looking out, that I could see a squirrel in the garden. So after over a year of no squirrel running about in there, after the previous one was found dead on the pavement just off the property, I wonder now if this squirrel will start to become a regular visitor. I hope so. I do love watching them.

I have been watching Indiana Jones today, on dvd. I have watched the first two and plan to watch the third one tomorrow, when back from morning job.

For the past hour, I have started feeling tearful. My mind prior to just that and during, is playing over some things. I feel fear. But not panic. I am still more as in carry on as you mean to go on mode, but within the limits we have to be in during this time, like observing social distances, which I was observing today as I was speaking to my two neighbours on the stairwell.

Then this afternoon my doorbell went. I wasn’t expecting visitors. It was my neighbour from downstairs, him and his wife bought me a two-pack toilet rolls. They wouldn’t accept money for them. But I am doing them a favour they asked, if I didn’t mind and that’s post an envelope for them. This is certainly not a problem and I am happy to help. So I shall post that on the way to work soon.

I hope you are all keeping well and doing ok in these tough times.

It’s the weekend

I treated myself to flowers on Wednesday, so I had something colourful to look at. Especially at the weekend. The roses are a lovely colour, don’t you think? ūüôā

Rose

Friday, I went and collected a book I reserved from my local library. The book is called, “Elevator Pitch,” by Linwood Barclay. It sounds a very good book, but I may be setting myself in for disappointment when I get to the end, from what I have been told.
The library has already closed by the time this post airs, until further notice, because of the Coronavirus. So the book will be in my possession until they are open again.

I can continue my work in my evening job. I have filled in a risk assessment form with my boss and signed, which acknowledges my asthma, my job, and my risk, but where I am happy to work still.
No adaptions can be made in the role I do, for this virus.
They are letting me work as long as I want to. If I want to change my mind, I can and let them know at anytime. But I won’t change my mind. So I am happy knowing I can keep working.

As I say nothing can be changed in my job I do, than what I do already and what I use. But there are a lot less staff in the building than before, due to them having to work from home. A majority of the time, I work on my own, with exception when I am with others because of another area we have to cover due to less cleaning staff and at the start and end of shift. I feel more at risk in a supermarket, than at my workplace. 

Masks were suggested by a reader in another post. Masks have not been offered at me to work and I won’t ask. It has been said by professionals, that surgical masks are really of no use, unless you are using those type of masks hospital staff would be wearing. (I can’t remember the names of those.) But the surgical masks, are to be used by those with the infection.
I will not wear a surgical mask in my job, because I would put myself at further risk, because of constantly messing with it, putting myself at risk, due to touching my face while adjusting it, as the professionals have mentioned. But also, as I am deaf, so I am aware how hindering a mask is to those that need to lipread, or just don’t hear me. So if I need to talk to a member of staff, they may need to see all my face to hear me. So I would be touching my face mask.
The only time I would ever wear one, if I am ever in a situation where I am deep cleaning the place, meaning I am head to toe in gear accordingly, incuding those safer type masks I would request. But as this is a more serious type of virus for the vulnerable, I think that’s where I would draw a line and would say no to me participating, should this arise.
My morning job, the boss of that one is waiting to hear from another department for this. But it will probably be a risk assessment form also. I am a lone worker there and only people I see are in passing, a little later in my shift, of some of the businesses that operate in these units I clean.

Link below takes you to WHO (World Health Organization) regarding masks:

https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019/advice-for-public/when-and-how-to-use-masks

Yesterday, I chose to stay at home, rather than volunteer at litter picking, as I mentioned I would in, My feelings ‚Äď part 7 on Thursday night.

I did a couple of household chores, before watching dvd’s and I have started working on my second pom pom bunny. I promise I will share those bunnies in their own post later. When I do, look out for a post called, “Hello bunnies.”

I watched:

  • Charlie’s Angels
  • Charlie’s Angels Full Throttle

Why I did not ever bother watching these films sooner, because I enjoyed watching them better than I expected.

I collected dvd’s from my neighbour in the afternoon and passed on ones I watched from before. I have a couple of films and the rest music dvd’s in this lots to watch.
I played a couple of the music dvd’s that afternoon to early evening.

Today, I watched one of my own dvd’s this morning, which was Graham Norton. Later, after lunch I plan to watch some more of the music dvd’s and then start on that book.

What’s your weekend like? Do share, because our weekends are probably so different right now to what we normally do and it gives ideas for other readers on what they could do.¬†

Chit chat extra

I read that book, “The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse,” by Charlie Macksey, as planned on doing in last weekends, “It’s the weekend” post.
It’s a beautiful book, inside and out and a lovely written book, that all ages can read. I recommend.

This weekend, I was going to go to Southwell, but with the suggestion of not travelling unless it is essential means I won’t be. I shall do that next month, depending on the situation.

I am aware that my local nature reserve is having a litter picking day, so I plan to do that, if not cancelled by then and only if weather is dry. Where I usually don’t mind getting wet for something like this. I’m in no mood to this time.

At work, it’s work as usual for me in both jobs. But there will be less office staff in the evening one as they start to work remote from home. I was concerned I would lose my job, but I was reassured we wouldn’t lose our jobs because we will be cleaning the building as usual. Also, when required, if staff were short elsewhere, we would be asked if we did not mind helping there temporarily, to keep important services going. So the panic I had there, I can now relax.

While the world has each has it’s own scenarios for what they have to do while this virus is happening, as quite a few of us bloggers have already said, we all have the community of WordPress and each other. I am already grateful for years of the internet as a deaf person, for communication, so nothing has changed there. But I bet there are many grateful for it now as some have to self isolate, or lockdown, depending where they live.
It was only recently a friend of mine via email commented on how thankful for email, so we can keep in touch at this terrible time. I totally agree.

My blogging won’t change during our terrible time at the moment. I will blog when I fancy. So I will see you here, or there.

Take care and bye for now, until my next post.

It’s the weekend

I made the decision to throw my poor Parlour Palm away after it was dying further. I won’t be buying another one, unless I just go fake with one.
The photo below was the last photo taken of it, before showing signs of deterioration later.

IMG_20191225_140437

As for my other plant, Peace lily, which is also in this photo, I moved that and placed on top of my bookcase. Although it seamt happy where it was, I wanted to give it more light. I have noticed it’s ready for re-potting too.

Today I went to Newark (which is in the UK for my overseas readers) and so I had a wander around there for a few hours.
My first call was having a meal, a place I went to for the first time last year that I really liked, as they had a good choice of vegan meals. So going on my own was out of my comfort zone. But it was a nice place that I felt I could do that one day on impressions I had of last year. It felt a relaxing place to be in and welcoming.
I usually see if a friend would like to meet up that lives local when I am in the area, but she had plans of her own this time, so hopefully I will catch up with her in May.

Tomorrow, I will watch the Titanic staring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. I have seen this film a few times before. It’s been a while watching this and this was in the bag of dvd’s of many, lent to me by the neighbour, so I plan on watching that after lunch. Aftrr all the dvd’s I have watched and at one point looking after several bags for a short while I am guessing I have come to the end of his collection of dvd’s. The only ones I did not watch, were a couple still sealed. It didn’t feel right watching before they had, even though I was given permission. They don’t have a working dvd currently and asked if it be ok one time to watch one of their dvd’s not watched at mine. I certainly said it was fine. So at some point convenient for us all, we shall all watch a dvd together. So I will get to see those ones then.

I will start reading my book at some point, after it was ready for me to pick up from library yesterday. So I look forward to reading that, which is “The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and the Horse,” by Charlie Mackesy.

I will pop into WordPress at some point for a read also, then I will pamper my feet.
I plan on having an early night in bed.

What’s your weekend like?¬†

Chit-chat March

I have been reading a book called, “Missing,” by Susan Lewis. It’s been a while sitting down with a book and it made a change. It’s certainly a book that got my attention and drawing me in, to read it. A well written book, that got me gripped and made me tearful near the end.¬†

Another book I read after, was a quick read book called, “Clean Break,” by Tammy Cohen.
I liked how it was written, going back and forth between the main two characters, on how they felt.
The ending was a twist for me too.
The book was a quick read, as I read it in 2 days. But it could be read easily in a day.

Shocked to learn that The Ear Foundation, in Nottingham is closing. By the time this post airs, it will already be closed. They have helped me quite a few times in the past and I used to attend quite regularly their adult events, until I could afford to longer go, with only in one job at the time.

Last month, I had my last counselling session near the end of the month. I did think of ending a session sooner, but was scared to let go, regardless the last few sessions have been positive with what I have mentioned.
As well as counsellor reminding me, I continue to remind myself that I am in a better place now, than last year and I have lots of good things to look forward to. My goals are what are keeping me going. But I know there may be some difficult times ahead. Like this month being Mother’s Day, (22nd March, here in the UK) which I won’t be playing a part of. But whatever lies ahead, if it gets too difficult, I won’t hesitate to contact my private counsellor again, that I have been using. I will never put my name down and wait for the NHS provider that has twiced failed me in a row before by failing to communicate with me in my preferred way and at some point I have not been on their waiting list, when I was supposedly on it. Just how many more vulnerable and at risk people are there, that could be thinking they are waiting because they were told they would be contacted, only to find when chasing up, that at some point they were not on it?
My counsellor said to contact her anytime I feel the need to chat. Even if my counselling session is just a one off I feel I need, then to contact her, so I can talk about it.

I booked and paid my day trips for this year, that I plan to go on, with the coach companies I use. So this year those trips so far are:

  • Oxford
  • Whitby
  • West Midlands Safari Park

The last one is a new place for me, so I will take my camera for that one. I also wanted to go to Stonehenge, but when I went to book, I discovered the pick up wasn’t local to me, so I read that wrong. Where I would have had to have gone, would have been difficult at that time in a morning. I would have had to have got up too early, so would have been tired to have enjoyed it on the day, as well as being tired the day after. I shall have to look at doing this later down the line, as a holiday.
I have something else I am considering doing that day, but will share later, if I end up doing this. ūüôā

There are another two day trips I would like to do, which one of them again a place I have not been to before and another, I have not looked to see what dates trips may be going there.

Until then, in between those, I will do some local trips, or a short travel.
One being this month, was going back to Newark for the day. For my overseas friends and readers that have shown an interest before when I have talked about Newark, here is an older post back in 2018, when I had 5 days there in: Chit-chat August (2018)
The other was re-visiting Southwell Minster. This was so I could look for the ‘mouseman’ carvings. You can find out more about ‘mouseman,’ Robert Thompson here:¬†https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Thompson_(designer). I learnt about him last year, via a neighbour and when I read more about the ‘mouseman’, I learnt that Southwell Minster has his signature mouse carvings too. So I had to go and have a look to see if I could find at least one of his mouse carvings he does in his work.

I tried a new tea, courtesy of my neighbour who is the same neighbour that’s been lending me dvd’s to watch. The tea was Echinacea and Hibiscus infusion tea. I bought more after trying them.

Some dvd’s watched:

  • Gladiator (staring Russell Crowe)
  • In the name of the king
  • Rain Man
  • Dolphin Tale
  • A Knight’s Tale
  • Tristan and Isolde
  • Touching the void
  • Batman dvd’s
  • Spiderman dvd’s
  • Die Hard dvd’s

I have been missing out on conservation and struggling to hear at work I have noticed, so when I had my hearing test in February, I mentioned this.
My long term readers may remember that I blogged over a year ago about my sensitivity to sound. In the end, after putting up with it for nearly a year before that, I had my hearing aids turned down, because I couldn’t stand it any longer. It was painful.
Due to really struggling this year with conservation, I was wondering about having them turned up. But at the same time I was concerned about that sensitivity to sound again. My audiologist who I seen that day said she could turn it up a little and, then to give myself so many months to adjust to it and when ready, I could make another appointment for it to be turned up a little again. So it can be done slowly and gradually over time. So a little, my hearing aids have been turned up.
I have managed ok with my left after a couple of days, but my right ear remains sensitive, although surprisingly I am managing better than expected, to say that to start with, I had an earache for about an hour, after being amongst the traffic and crowds of the city, after my appointment.
Even though it’s only a little bit turned up, I am noticing what I have missed at times. But it will be sometime before going back for an adjustment, due to sensitivity I have, which at times, I crave the silence after my evening job sometimes, when the conversations get loud.

My year in pixels that I have in my organiser, that records my moods daily, I keep forgetting to do. When I realise I have forgotten, I find I will have missed colouring it in accordingly for 2 days, or more. It can frustrate me knowing I have forgotten. But to turn this frustration quickly each time into a positive note, I ask myself, do I need it? So I have now decided this year not to bother with it further.

I am currently giving up for lent. I talked about challenging myself in this post: Setting myself a challengechallenge.
In addition to this, that I am doing, I have also gave up an item in my home. The item I bought, I never used that I thought might turn into a new hobby to try. Thankfully I did not pay too much at the time for it. But never the less, it was money spent that I did not end up using.
My motto is, that if you have something that you have not used for 6 months, you are not likely to end up using it again. So it might as well be sold, given away, or scrapped if no good. That motto I have I have stuck by, until this particular item, because I kept telling myself I will use it one day.
This particular item I had a few years. So I have given myself plenty of time to use it. Which I didn’t.
So I gave it to a local charity shop. No more taking up the room and hidden away at the back of my storage cupboard.
I know I have other hobbies I have not done for a few years, but they take up a smaller space shared by other crafts I do use, as they are stored in my craft drawer in the corner of my room. So getting rid of those won’t make a difference as my craft drawer will still be there anyway.

What’s your month, or week been like?

It’s the weekend

This weekend will be a relaxing weekend.

Saturday will be mainly watching dvd’s.
I have the X-Men planned to watch again. I have a of load of washing to put in washer and I plan to vacumm through my home and clean the bathroom.
I have everything I need, so I don’t need to go out for anything.

Sunday will be a meal with my friend. My treat, as it was his birthday over a week ago.

Then later in the day, another dvd, or two.

What are your weekend plans?

Would you be interested in this becoming a regular post, each weekend? (To those that haven’t shared their views already.)¬†
