I ended up yesterday Tired and Emotional. I was at work all day, a lot of which I seemed to spend running (metaphorically) back and forth between people and computers, sorting things out. By 3pm I was visibly flagging. It must have been visible because my friend offered to take me home; but I didn't want to sit at home feeling miserable, better to have people around me when I feel like that.
There are some things that are worrying me about my parents at the moment (which I don't want to post about here) - with that and everything else going on in my head at the moment it all feels too much sometimes. Why do families cause us so much strife and worry...? because we love them so much I suppose. We might not always like things they do, but we can't escape the blood ties.
I am the youngest of three children and the only one who still lives locally to our parents' home, so I tend to feel responsible for looking after them, which I find hard sometimes. I shared some of my worries with my sister last night though, and felt much better afterwards.
Going back to yesterday... it was a good thing that my friend C was 'booked' to come home after work and help me put up my Christmas tree and decorate it, in exchange for a meal. In fact, she bought Mr H. and I the Christmas tree as our present, which I thought was a brilliant idea.
So I now have a twinkling sitting room, all I need now is Mr H. and DJ to share it with... only 13 days to go... not that I'm counting!
