I'm so glad to see you reached the penthouse. Like me you have had a hard struggle. Luckily I was able to get myself out of my depression months ago and I hope I never go there again. Once is enough. I'm expecting my son home from Argentina in the next couple of months. He'll only be here for a couple of weeks and then he's off to Vietnam. Wonder who he gets the travel bug from?
No the sun isn't shining as is usual in Glasgow. I find it hard that I haven't been able to make friends here especially when there are so many old people around here. I have lots of friends in NZ. I meet lots of grannies when I pick the kids up from school. I tried to get babysitting jobs and even got a criminal disclosure. I did get the offer of a few hours work a week but it would have meant spending hours on the bus for a couple of hours work. It was just visiting old ladies who can't get out. I didn't buy a car here because I have a bus pass and driving here isn't the pleasure it is in America.
I hope you are feeling better and enjoying the penthouse. I'm sure I'll make it after all.
