feeling a bit flat, actually

Thank you to everyone who commented on my last post - some really helpful insights there, I very much appreciate it. I've been really crap at returning visits to de-lurking commenters the last week or so, for which I apologise.

There seems to have been a lot going on at the moment, a large proportion of it in my head; worrying about not hearing from the adoption services; managing my Ma's slightly negative reaction to the adoption thing; worrying about money now that we are a lodger down; worrying about getting this marketing going for the business; worrying about putting on weight; er, and worrying about worrying so much.

See the general 'worrying' theme going on there? (Although it's good to know I'm not the only one. Hopefully this'll help your Technorati ranking, Rhys!)

I am trying to actively manage it all by cultivating a positive 'que sera sera' attitude, chilling out and just letting things flow over me.

It's starting to work a bit. I've been on the upswing of a crescendo migraine all week that hasn't actually tipped over in to 'excrutiating', but has left me with a fairly constant visual disturbance and needing to take pain-killers; this afternoon that's gone off a bit, which is an immense relief. Having a husband who does reiki is fantastic :).

So B has gone to work and I have a heavy afternoon of relaxing ahead of me; Poldark, By The Sword Divided and a second viewing of Battlestar Galactica, all of which I will rave about next week; along with a review of Ladies In Waiting which Mitey Mite asked for.

To paraphrase my old geography teacher, one of the best things for worry is to take some direct action; I am going to browse the various websites I am registered with for potential lodgers now. Odd how money is only important when you don't have enough of it, isn't it?
