22 November 2010
Saturday was our 17th wedding anniversary and it’s almost scary to think about how the years have flown by. We had a quiet day but that is normal for us. None of his family have ever acknowledged our anniversary. My family used to before I fell out with them in early 1999. After I got back in touch with my parents late 2001 they started sending us a Christmas card and one for my birthday but have ignored Rick’s birthday and our anniversary. It upsets me at times but this is my parents all over. I still don’t talk to my sister almost twelve years on.
Yesterday we didn’t go far as both of us felt rough. I hadn’t slept well so felt exhausted all day. It’s the first time we have missed going to church since we have moved here.
Today we have felt better. For me having a good night’s sleep helped and I woke late for me at 8.25 am. It has also helped my mood as I have been very depressed recently. All I can put it down to was hating where we lived before so it was stress finally coming out. The stupidity of it all in my mind is that I love living where we do now. Nothing will persuade me to move back down south now. I love being in a village, having wonderful walks we can do, being on the coast, fresh air, community spirit….
