    Last Night i wrote a email to my Local MP About the inconsistencies of services for young cares across the UK and how it needs to be made compulsory that all staff who work with young people and adults 25& under weather that be face to face or digitally need to have training on who we are, the challenges we face and how to support us and made a petition on it !

    Managed to also get like 5 signatures from friends today on the petition, even if it’s a total flop I can still say I made a petition about somthing I’m passionate about and X amount of people agreed with me !

    I got out of bed and done my hair and makeup and about to get dressed. I have no plans today so would normally just stay in bed, but trying to distract myself today :)

    Your shelves look great @Shaunie! Love how you've decorated them it looks so nice! :) 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤

    I thought I'd have a go at learning the guitar - think I've already managed to learn 7 chords (A, A minor, E, E minor, D, D minor, C) in under 2 hours :D

    I went for a walk. Also have learned three more guitar chords I think (C minor, G, G minor), although they're hard so I won't say I've learned to play them yet... Haha.

    Actually doing this thing where I reach out before doing something destructive ✌ told my friend I was struggling and she came and picked me up in my Jammie's cause I couldn't face getting dressed and we went for a long drive and chat 👌she then came in and helped me get a load of washing on and change my bedding/tidy up a bit. What did I do to deserve such a great friend? Honestly feel so much better now, and more relaxed now some of the housework is out the way.

    I went over 4 ice skating dances (foxtrot, rythym blues, canasta tango and Dutch waltz.) I also even did a teapot (another ice skating thing) without any help or sliding around the ice on my bum. :)
    So salaam worthy friend. Come back soon! That's the end.  Till another Arabian night! A whole new world, a new fantastic point of view. No one to tell us no, or where to go, or say we're only dreaming. A whole new world, with new horizons to pursue. I'll chase them anywhere, there's time to spare. Let me share this whole new world with you. A whole new world, that's where I'll be.

    This is all so great folks!  Loving the mindfulness jar @Shaunie it's gorgeous! I made a blue one like the ocean a while back need to make another :)

    That's Positive to hear @BubblesGoesBoo it's just taking it one step at a time X

    That sounds amazing @Kasa2103 !
    I tried rollerskating once, couldn't even get on the dance floor without falling Haha so that is absolutely awesome :)

    Done a lot of travelling and had to fight a lot of anxiety. My hands and wrist is clear no brackets or bands nothing on my hands either so I got my reward. Anyone who has been in GC with me knows I always talk about how nice these are. It's good to be home for the day. Kick back on the train ride home and read my book again. Yes I am still reading the Lauren Graham book. 
    *spoiler contains food*
    Meat and potato pasties. 


    Some people think i am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking

    I came home from work cause of poor mental health 🙋 not really something to be proud of but today was a breakthrough as I never admit to people about my mental health until it's too late and I end up in hospital, but today I actually admitted to myself and my manager that I wasn't coping before doing anything destructive and before hospital is needed 🙌  came home and focused on myself and feeling a bit better now, not going back into work though as I don't want to push myself too hard 👌 who cares if I lose my bonus? My health is more important than money (even if that money does pay for a trip to Aberdeen 🙄)  <3
