I've deleted the very personal post, it was only ever meant to be a temporary one, serving a purpose.
I don't normally take much notice of or comment on politics, but oh boy the Government is in total disarray, what a complete and utter shambles. These people, who are meant to be in charge of running our country, can't even agree or get along with their own colleagues in their own party. Beggars belief. And they expect us to vote for them in another election? Two things particularly struck me.....that Tory MP (no idea of his name) who defected to the other side yesterday - doing it very ostentatiously in the middle of his Prime Minister's speech....how rude and bad mannered of him. And that pontificating idiot from the Dark Ages, Rees-Mogg, pictured lying across one of the benches in Parliament, actually dozing.....what?! If you or I did that in our office at work, we'd be disciplined.
Enough of that.
I've given in and made a doctor's appointment, for about 2.5 weeks' time - I could see one of the other GPs sooner than that, but would rather wait and see my own. My lack of sleep (it's 04.22 and I've been downstairs for the past hour....again), backache and hip pain have all been getting worse for the past few weeks, and persistent gut trouble is affecting me as well. Seems as though everything I eat is upsetting my digestive system lately, even though I'm only eating plain food and nothing that I haven't cooked myself. I'm sure a lot of it is stress-related.
Husband's out most of the morning, I had quite a busy day yesterday so will be cardmaking this morning, then we have to go shopping later. But right now I'm going back to bed, hopefully I'll sleep for another hour or so.
