Is There A Doctor In The House?

It's been a bit of a funny old week. Well, month really!
Having been totally consumed by the building works last year and then unpacking tons of stuff, Christmas was a sort of deadline to get certain things done by. But now, well, I just can't quite get back 'in the groove', so to speak!
(If I never see another filled packing box again, it will be too soon!)
Also, I have found it increasingly difficult to cope with 'stuff' going on. Last week I was due 2 meetings with my Support Worker, helping out with doing the teas and coffees for an 'Open Day' for the company that supplies my Support Worker and I was due to meet Pearl in town on Wednesday afternoon. So, Monday was my only 'clear' day.
Was quite negative during the meeting with my S/W on Tuesday afternoon. Come Wednesday I was just tying myself in knots about getting into town to meet Pearl. I phoned Mr B and he managed to organise for Pearl to come and meet me at home. In my panic I managed to set off an asthma attack! Cough, cough, cough!
How can you not feel good when this lady smiles? The first time I met Pearl.
But it was such a great meet up. It was such fun. All too soon she had to leave to catch her train back to Manchester. We were so busy chatting that we didn't do photos but Pearl did do a snap of what she wore; so I'm 'borrowing' that to pop on here! For those of you who don't know, Pearl is a total Vivienne Westwood fan. Check out that tartan and the furry coat. That must be the most expensive cat bed that Tabby has ever curled up on! Nothing like making herself comfy!
I cancelled the other 2 things and have just chilled out for a few days. Hoping that next week is more positive! Only 3 appointments booked in! To think that when I was first ill, if I had one 'thing' to do in a week that was as much as I could deal with, so I do know I am improving, but, goodness, it's taking a long time!
