I've just managed to wake up when I thought I'd have a good sleep as I was tired. So it's coffee and fag time - but with a difference! I'm now on e cigarettes and I haven't had a proper fag since last Tuesday week, which is eleven days. It's been difficult, because there's a sense of loss, although I'm not sure why as I'm getting smoke and nicotine. So far so good.
I've just returned from 6 days in the Outer Hebrides, staying with my dear friend J. I had the most wonderful time there - saw lots of birds, including both male and female hen harriers. We had some fantastic meals and some good wines - went again to Harris for langoustine and had a steak the size of a plate. It was fabulous.
I didn't sleep for more than 4 hours the night before last - I was up at 0200 and busy from then on. I sorted out 300 plus CDs and put them onto my iPod, which took a long time, and divided the CDs into heaps; one for me (but only a few), one classical and one everything else. Some friends have chosen ones that they like and I'll put the rest on Music Magpie. Then I started on the larder, which is still ongoing. I've got a new fridge, which is much better than the old one in that it has a large freezer, and I've stocked it up with goodies.
Going back to fags, I'm firmly committed to my e cigarette; I use it all the time. In fact I had to buy extra batteries as they were being used up too quickly! The e fag I've got seems to be expensive to run, but it's much much cheaper than smoking. Can't quite believe I've managed so far!
The kitchen table is VERY full of tins and jars, so I'll have a go at that then go back to bed.
I spent 16 years in the RAF defending the Free World , then got bunged out unceremoniously for being bipolar. I and was subsequently diagnosed with PTSD. Funny old world, isn't it?
