A few weeks ago after our lovely visit to Ange’s Cottage we stopped off at Dereen Wood. Lucy took this photo of me and I saw a post on The Migraine Association of Ireland website for a competition for those with chronic pain.
Earlier today there was going to be a pity party of a blog post. That’s what not sleeping at night does. Following on from my post about ‘Who am I?’ at 2am my negative thoughts told me I was a loser….yes thanks for that.
Oh yes I’m wide awake – and I’m on my phone. I’ll never learn! I actually had four decent nights so that’s a start.
In a lot of ways things are picking up, in other ways things are exactly the same – or even regressing.
I think I was naïve when I started the coffee mornings. I thought it would open up a whole new circle for me and it hasn’t. I think as far as friends go it’s time to stop trying and actually I’m OK with that. At this stage it’s better for me not to try than get hurt all over again.
I’m so excited though, this weekend Jono is taking me to Birmingham and I will get to see my best friend from school. I haven’t seen her in about 35 years! I really can’t wait.
There are so many great things in the pipeline and I’m thrilled. Of course the cogs are always whirring so there are new ideas all the time too. Watch this space 🙂
Congratulations to Mary from Aclare in Co. Sligo who was crowned the National Winner in the Brown Bread Baking Competition! (yes there is such a thing!)
A conversation came up this week about this topic. Not just ‘Who am I?’ but who is anyone? I have to say I was stumped to come up with an answer! Of course I’m Val Robus but Val was the name I was given and Robus is the name I married into. So who am I?
