Monday 22nd June

Don't know why, but this month seems to be going very slowly - might be something to do with waiting for pay day to arrive (this Friday), and the contract details for the house I'm buying (possibly in the next week or 2)!

Last weekend was lovely, I managed to sit outside and stitch the whole day on Sunday - bliss! Then I had a very stressful morning last Monday when I found out the Royal Mail had 'lost' the divorce papers being returned to the court from him. The court staff were asking me why I was asking them to resend the papers (as opposed to him doing it - lol!), and couldn't seem to understand my explanations. Then I hear from someone on the stitch and craft forum, who told me the freebie item I sent her didn't arrive in the post either - what is it with the Royal Mail? I shouldn't have to pay extra just to make sure it actually gets to where I want it to go! That's about 6 items lost in the mail in the last 2 months.

I was on late shifts last week, not bad. We managed to get our first rest break of the week (4 shifts)! on Saturday and was late off for 3 of them too - but we didn't actually do very much. I managed to 'cure' someone just by examining her properly - lol - and left her farting like a trooper, but no more pain! We had to drive 7 miles just to get to her. I didn't have anyone who was seriously ill, but I did have a lady that fell and hurt her leg, she was in agony and we couldn't work out why. Tons of morphine didn't seem to help much either!

I've now got the joy of working 4 x 12 hour early shifts in hot weather - it's forecast to hit 26 degrees this week. But it's been flipping cloudy all day today and due to rain on the weekend when I'm off again - typical!

Went to the gym today for the first time in about 2 years! Well I only did about 30 minutes as I didn't want to be too sore for work tomorrow. Got to try and increase my exercise levels because my blood pressure seems to like being rather high lately - and been told off by the Docs, ooops!

I've managed to do a little bit of stitching lately, finished stitching 2 cards and started another one. I'm going to try and concentrate on my 2 major WIP's for a couple of weeks before starting any more - I've got loads that I want to do and Christmas will be here before we know it!

I had better get on with cleaning, ironing, etc. so that I can sit down and enjoy the evening.
