Dear Diary

- Early shift last week, late shift this week. Too tired to do anything but sleep and eat.

- One of those sentences is a lie.  Guess which one?

- I finally got myself some thicker wool to practice my knitting with, so when my young friend comes round and I'm in, we'll knit together again.

- Still not in much of a mood to do much as the depression still keeps my urge to conquer the world in check, but on the bright side I turn 53 in a month's time, which means I have just over a decade before retirement.

- I've taken the week off work for my birthday so I can chillout, relax and just enjoy doing as little as possible. I might even write a few words. And if you're wondering what to get me for my birthday, don't. I prefer time with people rather than gifts. So if you want to come over and enjoy a cuppa, bring some biscuits or a strawberry glazed doughnut and we'll chat for an hour or so and just enjoy the time.

- After three weeks, we have hot water again. Guess that means I have to take a bath now.

- After 8 months in my job, I still like it. Remarkable.

- I need an eye test.

- Had my mother over for dinner last Sunday as it was Mother's Day. Even cooked her roast potatoes. Then we watched Gravity together.

See you on Friday.

Nobody gets to retire anymore! It goes on, and on, and on... etc.

We all want more money, and I think most people stop earning more when they can't physically do it anymore. I hope that one day I will find a time when I can stop working for others and just be.
