Well I think the world has gone mad. Its all we are seeing in the news and on facebook and all everyone is talking about. I am actually getting a bit edgy. Am I going to have to close my setting? With my current financial situation this can not be a good thing. And what on earth is going on with bloody loo rolls. Why on earth are people panicking about loo rolls? Really!!! You cant get any for love nor money trust me.... loo rolls are the last thing I am thinking about ... I stock pile them on a day to day basis as I appear to go through about 2 a day. I have always wondered why I go through so much I mean, kids have small bums don't they why do they need so much??/ They inevitably get it on their hands and the seat and every where else as it is!! If I stock piled loo rolls I would need a new house!!!!
On a more serious note though its looking more and more likely that they may close the schools. Hmmmm. -- stuck in my house with a load of kids is definitely not my idea of fun I can tell you!.
Had my first counselling session last night which was more of a friendly chat. It actually went really well although we never touched on any major issues like my shocking relationship with my parents or anything like that. Mainly talked about the fibromyalgia and how that affects me etc. Oh and the wine. We mentioned the wine. I think she was quite shocked to be fair as she kept saying well, Dawn I would never have known. etc etc. Well no, I was very quick to tell her that I never got drunk. But I did explain how hard it was for me not to have those two glasses of wine every single bloody night and that I needed those two glasses of wine every single bloody night. Winnie the witch was actually chirping away in my ear while I was clarifying my position in Clare's in that she kept saying "well you are not an alcoholic are you? just two glasses, every night is nothing!" Though we all know that it wasn't nothing to me. It actually felt ok talking about it and she kind of believed me, which is good as I don't think anyone else actually does. Even Neil. He is like " well I am sure you can have a glass or two when you go out" which yes I can, however the struggle the next day when I am at home is just not worth it. Sometimes though I think its the culture in what we grew up in. Neil's parents never drank at home when he was growing up, so he never drank at home and still doesn't. He likes to be in a pub. However, my parents drank at home. And that's where I like to drink is at home in front of the telly. I mean, yeah I do like to drink in pubs as well but for me it was every night at home. Anyway, off to see Lewis Capaldi tonight with Natasha and her friends. She managed to get me tickets for my birthday. Of course I am designated driver but thats absolutely fine for me. I am slightly nervous but am sure it will be okay.
Before that though I need to go for a run. Going to take the 4 dogs and do the hills on the flood route today...... shared a post on my timeline on facebook today it was brilliant am going to put it on here ......

Start by reaching for the sky as hard as you can, then trying to touch your toes. roll your head. Stretch your fingers. Stretch everything.Buy a water bottle.
