Good morning everyone 
its a lovely sunny morning I’m so proud off myself I’ve just managed to walk out my front door and to the gate and look at the sky I know it doesn’t sound much but to me it’s a step forward 
I just had to tell someone

    You should be proud!
    I like to garden when I'm able to motivate myself...but sometimes I can only do the back as the front garden sometimes feels too outsidey and scary and I cant face it... :)
  • lottie2007lottie2007 Member Posts: 32 Listener
    I totally no we’re you are coming from the back garden is my sanctuary as it’s closed in but as you say the front is so open 
    the only way I can explain it is like being in a fish bowel and everything is going on around me 
    have you sat in the garden an clear your mind and listen to the birds it works wonders if you listen hard enough you can get the different birds I laughed when someone try it and it definitely works may help you

    Glad you are good 
    been filling in so many forms page after page it just wears you out snd most of them don’t make any sense oh dear sorry to moan but it’s nice to have a chat 
    we watching Xmas movies with hot chocolate and naughty chocolate biscuits 
    cats curled up beside me 
    you have a lovely evening 
  • Cher_ScopeCher_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,494 Disability Gamechanger
    Yes it does wear you out.  Your hand starts to ache from all the writing, doesn't it!  Don't forget if they are benefits claims and you need any help to ask our community.  We'd love to support you.

    Well that sounds like a lovely plan for the rest of your night, I'm going to go find my cats too soon.  One of them had some teeth out last week so he's not been very well, but he's on the up now :)  (and getting very spoilt, being fed roast chicken!)

    Take care and talk soon.
