What a difference a couple of months can make. I have just done my first visit into town for Christmas Shopping and the only thing I thought about as a treat for getting through the stress of crowded shops, was a bacon and cheese wrap from Greggs. I have to admit, I had a couple of real thoughts about smoking;
1 When someone had just had one and walked close to me in a shop
2 When I had to walk through a cloud of smoke to get into a shop.
Each was a thought of disgust, I must have pulled a face as the OH reminded me that was me last year. But one thing I was never supersensitive to before but am now, some people really need to shower more :mad: The upshot of it is, I actually managed a Saturday afternoon in town, a couple of weeks before Christmas, without crying, stressing or threatening to kill someone - cool :cool: - Such a difference from the year I got so stressed I actually forgot my way home LOL
