A real mixed bag of a day, I was up and ready by around 8.30am as needed to do a few things before a television engineer came to sort out my television, he rang just after 9am to ask if he could come earlier than the scheduled timeslot of 12-5pm as he was in the area, I agreed as it made sense. Although I did warn him that he needed to be done by 10.45am as I had my booster vaccination booked in for 11am at my local doctors’ surgery.
I was in and out of the surgery in less than 10 minutes which was fabulous as I’d heard at other places there is a 45 minute wait. By the time I got home, my arms was a bit achy but seem to settle down after an hour or so.
I hadn’t planned to do much today as wasn’t sure how I’d be affected by the jab and also the scheduled engineer visit. But have felt rather down and lonely today, can’t explain why or can think of a reason, what I have learnt over the last few years is to just lean into my feelings and they will pass, so I snuggled under a blanket and watched a Disney film.
Late afternoon I decided I would pop out to get a faux fur blanket/throw to finish off the reading room and give me something comfy and warm to sit under when I meditate as I tend to get a little chilly. I also bought myself a hot water bottle which I’ve been thinking about getting for a few months to help warm me up when I go cold water swimming and as I plan to get back in the water this coming Sunday it felt the right time to get one.
I’ve spent the evening, watching the TV, I’ve put my phone on do not disturb as find this helps to calm my mind and don’t feel the need to keep checking it either.
I write this with tears in my eyes and hope that I sleep soundly and tomorrow is a cheerier day.
