I have let myself get too bored. I have a few things to do next week. I will hopefully get referred to the fit for life excercise program soon. I am sure just getting out to go and do something to get those endorphine levels up a bit will be a great help. Also just generally feeling like I have more purpose and energy.
My Husband said I needed to go shopping! I feel very drab. I just don't want to go and buy clothes that will be too big for me in three months time. If I am going to go to the gym and lose some inches it seems pointless to get clothes just yet. I also feel the same about making something for myself.
I haven't been following the news either. It is too depressing. There is a worldwide recession as far as I can make out. Although some countries look as though they are doing ok, if Europe and America as markets buyng from manufacturing nations don't have money to spend, it will affect everyone.
My parents were the epitome of frugal. In this era we are just not used to having so many people realy struggling. I think we have been fed on such a consumer driven dreamscape for so long we know no different. At least during the 1960-70s there was still some family coherence. People helped each other, families did not live so far apart. I wonder how the next few years will change our expectations and values as societies.
We have some friends coming to stay with us in a couple of weeks, so it's a good reason to do a very good house clean. All those drawers and nooks that get skimmed over. Time for a turn out of things that just seem to be clutter and get them to the charity shop. Well I suppose I could car boot sale some stuff, it might be fun to see what pocket money I can get from a few bits and bobs that just collect dust.
