Hi Mimi, I finally managed to check in on the right day.
I'm sorry you did not have a good night. Seems Fibro robs us even of sleep. Hopefully you'll do better tonight.
I went to a German Christmas Market yesterday, in Birmingham. I had a good day but am paying for it today. Just a few hours strolling around, even with regular stops and rests, and I am just about able to move today.
I was shaken to my core with those terrible shootings in CT. My grandbabies live in Arizona and I know their guns laws are different. I just wanted to grab my babies and hug them tight. Scype is just not the same.
Hope you all are doing as well as you can. Hugs Jilly in the UKView Thread
Yes, there have been stories on our news of the bravery of the teachers and how they hid the children. After Dunblaine ( in Scotland a man went into one of our primary schools and shot so many children and teachers) our shooting clubs were closed down and all our schools have only code entries now. It is a sad reflection on Society that we need to think this way.
All I can say is that here in the UK you all have so many people praying for those involved in this horror. It may not be our Country and our children but we share your pain and sorrow. Our hearts and prayers are with you. Hugs JillyView Thread
Angelswife, I know what you mean. I have stopped looking at the news because I just start crying for those who have had their lives ripped from them. I don't think it will ever make sense . So terribly, terribly sad.View Thread
Please may I offer my condolences to all of you in the USA. Our news has been broadcasting about the terrible tragedy in Connecticut. and the loss of of those sweet innocents. All I can offer is my heartfelt prayers for them and for you all. Gentle hugs Jilly in the UKView Thread
Hi MiMi and everyone, we don't have Thanksgiving here in the UK. Harvest Festival is the nearest celebration and that is in October. My grandsons have told me all about it though. Is it this Thursday?
Very dull and overcast here on the South Coast but strangely warm for this time of year, not that I am complaining. The damp and cold seems to make everything worse.
I see you have trouble with pacing too MiMi. It is one of my biggest struggles as I can't rid myself of the thoughts that if I push myself long and hard enough Fibro will disappear. I finish work in three weeks time and my boss is determined to make every day as hard as she can for me, demanding I do this and that because she " is so busy". I'm trying to do it all, my work and hers and it just makes me feel even more of a failure because I can't do it. Sigh. Sorry, whining again.
I hope you all have a great Thanksgiving and remember to be kind to yourselves. Hugs Jilly in the UKView Thread
