Back to work
I'm going back to work on Monday, finally fighting fit, after the long road to recovery ended. It has been a long time since I have been in a working environment, but after speaking to the current Manager, I feel sure, everything will run smoothly. They are a great bunch, at London Road. I have tonnes of respect for all of them and they have been nothing but supportive, so I will be happy to see all everyone, as soon as I get back.
Jason has been terribly ill this week, so a colleague invited us round for a meal, just to take the pressure off and allow Jason to relax for a bit, last night!
She cooked Italian and we spent a good five hours chatting about everything. It really isn't until you sit down with someone, that you really discover the real truth, the real person and their real purpose. In all honesty, so many people have said their bit and had their say, that sometimes, the facts get skewed and that has been a major problem all along the line.
It was a wonderful, relaxing and enjoyable evening, spent with someone who has a heart of gold and truly made us feel welcome, as ever. When you go into someones house, there are occasions when you feel uncomfortable, this was nothing but. We had a lovely time and will reciprocate as soon as we are able!
So back to work it is on Monday. Looking forward to it, Can't wait to get back into the swing of it and see all the old volunteers, as well as many new ones I am sure.
It's not until you have been truly ill, that you actually begin to realise, just what is important to you. Friends and the family I have left, as well as all those who have helped us through this difficult time.
I even don't care that my life changed for the worst, over the last eight months, because you know what I am still alive, that is all that matters!

We are sat here now, going through stuff. It really amazes me, just how much our lives have changed over the years. I used to love dealing in shares and bought all of those, pictured on the right, over a short space of time, just before 9/11. Just my luck. Lost thousands of pounds in shares over night. At least I can laugh about it now!
Life for us, tends to change, on ten year cycles. I would not like to put that down to Bipolar, though I am sure it plays its part.
Burning ones Bridges!
We popped out this morning for a walk, as the weather was great and there is supposed to be a storm coming in later. Have loads to do this afternoon, sorting through twenty years worth of paperwork. Believe me, that is a lot of paperwork!
We literally have not been through paperwork for twenty years. Two filing cabinets, full to the brim with statements, letters and memories. Trimming down ones life, does not finish at the auction house, it should include every part of ones life, so that's what we are doing!
So this evening we are going to finish going through our filing cabinets and burn what ever we need too.
This process, debating what to keep, can be complicated. Due to the nature of our relationship, we have to keep mountains of paperwork, even now.
The end of another day. Burning memories from the last twenty years. Stuff I have been collecting in filing cabinets and draws for reasons, I can't explain. Once again. a weight lifted, as one watches, ones life burn!
