As some of you know I had a really bad day on Friday. Nothing really happened, just a small thing that broke the camel's back!
We went away for the weekend, was planned. Nearly didn't go! Went to the Lake District in England. About 4hours drive from where we live. Took 6, loads of traffic works! spent all Sunday driving around. Then the 6 hour drive back yesterday. So spent 18 hours behind the wheel!
I can tell you, it was worth every minute. For 18 precious hours, I did not have to worry about S. No falls, no unrealistic demands, toilet breaks were carefully managed, only had to resort to the bottle once. It was just S, me and the car! S thoroughly enjoyed it, as he was doing something "normal" that didn't take any effort, all he had to do, was look at the beautiful scenery. He grew up here, so we visited a few old haunts down memory lane. Lots of good boxes were ticked!!!
Yes, I am exhausted today, but a pleasant tiredness, not the overwhelming feeling of Friday!
What I want to know is what the rest of you do to relive this awful pressure we all suffer from time to time?
Lots of love
Ps. Car didn't have quite such a good time, brick wall jumped out at me, while reversing. Still has giving S something to dine out on for ages!!!
