Just a normal day!
I woke up this morning feeling a little more down than usual. The sun had disappeared, the miserable rain was back and in all honesty, I didn't want to get up. Some days can be lower than others, and today was one of those days. Everyone and everything is dragging their feet now. I myself need a break from all this nonsense. At least I have been busy, keeping my mind off everything, by continuing my writing and spending time with those in the know!
I had a terrible nights sleep last night. Jason is going to bed later and later, disturbing my sleep at stupid o'clock in the morning and keeping me awake longer and longer.
My dreams are the worst part of the night for me. Every night is different, but essentially the same. Nightmare after nightmare. Horrible dreams based on my life, how it is at the moment.
My sedatives have been increased, but even they are not working like they used too. I have been left in this position now for very nearly six months, and it is about time, something was done in all respects!
Currently watching 'Are You Being Served'. 1970s comedy at its best. Always watch it to cheer me up on horrible days like this.
Just got back from doing the weekly shop. Jason is sorting out the rest of the stuff to be sold and I'm doing
some blogging before cooking dinner.
Now back to 'Are You Being Served'......
They don't make comedy like they used too. I love everything 70s, especially the comedy. I know it's not politically correct, but sitcoms of that era, are the funniest, Camp, in your face and innovative comedies, you'll ever watch.
My fondest memories as a child are sitting with my parents watching comedy of the era. I never understood the innuendo of the time, but gleefully laughed along with it.
I bought the entire box set recently, and will be taking it with me to Spain!
Spain offers a new way of life. We are looking for a much more laid back life style, away from the rat race that Southampton and the UK perpetuate. Jason and I are at home currently watching, 'A Place in the Sun'. They are in Valencia, another place we had looked at.
In all honesty, we have no idea what we will be living in as yet. That will depend on many things. So for the time being, we are continuing to sell, sell, sell, to get enough money together to afford to move and live away from here. Jason was speaking to me about things, and said we would never come back to The UK, under any circumstances, and I agree with him. Our life is dead and buried here and we have nothing to stay here for.
I used to be all things English. I loved my Country, the people who lived here and the traditions I respect. When you experience, life changing, damaging events you really do have to change your whole life, so that is what we are doing!
My aim is to write full time in Spain, whether as a freelance writer, or writing for my own website or publication. Whatever it is, that I eventually do for a living, it will be significantly more life enhancing than what my life has been before. I do not want my life to continue down the same vein as it was before. Doing what I was doing before is not an option
So what does Spain have to offer, that The UK doesn't?
The cost of living is far cheaper in Spain. After doing our homework, it is clear, that the cost of living could be as much as a third of what it is in The UK!
This will be the final chapter in our life together, so we will have to make it a good one. One that we will never forget. Of course, we still have our reservations, about the direction our lives are heading in, but it really is at times like this, that one really does have to make some life changing decisions
After all, What is the worst that can happen?
My health is also becoming an issue, the older I get. I was diagnosed with Arthritis a while back, and the climate here in The UK, is not doing my condition any favours!
Mental Health Care in Spain is not the same as it is here in Southampton. Standards are very different.
I have been warned what to expect, and am willing to live with that. I am hoping that a change of life style will change not only my outlook on life but also the amount or type of medication I require.
