I moved into my new home yesterday. I'm hearing and whispering and having flashbacks but I've managed to keep busy and put together furniture and unpack boxes today.

I supplement magnesium, im just thinking it was a random thing really. Ive had it before when drinking too much caffiene but i barely have any these days and it persisted a long time. Felt like i was flirting with everyone, fluttering dem lashes ₩_₩

meh. being brave doesnt feel very nice

This really worked out, thought it was just gonna be horrible. Phew

I organised a little goodbye drinks for a colleague who's moving on. I had to shepherd a number of difficult people to attend it, as well as of course attending it myself! He seemed to feel valued from it all :-)

^ Nice one ghost of an englishman

So I have a massive fear/phobia/avoidance of trains. Well train stations and everything that goes with it. I think because I never used trains growing up I feel like i don't know what i'm doing and I get immediate SA.

Today I dropped my car of at the garage (more sa inducing stuff) and got a train to Arundel. Proper heart thumping, legs shaking stuff for me. The station is rural and v quiet which helped but the train was from London so packed to the rafters. Got on had a moment and sat down. Still sat there worrying about every little detail of things but I managed.

Had a wander round Arundel, it was surprisingly quiet, it's such a lovely place to visit. Bought a bag of chips and sat by the river. The return journey was much easier, I was still nervy but the train was delightfully empty going back.

Definitely need to make myself do more things like this. Probably doesn't sound like much but train travel is a serious phobia for me.

I managed to liaise with the local council about a property-tax refund;
and also bought some nice new lingerie in exactly the style, size and fabric I wanted, more expensive than my usual choice but I thought I deserved it

Quite pleased with myself today

Picked my nephew up today in another town, took him to a supermarket first, then into town (parking way too far away ), went and did some shopping and picked up "lunch", came back through rush hour (didn't realise how late it had got ), then had a BBQ despite it being a bit chilly
