Feeling much better

by Bobshouse on 03 Apr 2013, 19:11

Yesterday I was fairly hungry after my fast day but did not need much to fill me up. It has been the same today. At last my portions are getting smaller and I am generally eating less. Had a bad night again last night, ended up coming downstairs at 2 as was restless. Introduced myself to the mouse in the pantry, it looks very healthy, glossy coat etc! Not sure what it is eating now though as everything is in tins, Tupperware or glass.
Started sorting out the veggie patch today and did lots of bramble clearance. Am very tired now but feel better for being outside. The Gite is taking shape well, we will be going for a day trip to Ikea soon for the kitchen. It is over in Caen, about an hour and a half for us.
We are now only lighting the fire in the evenings which will make a big difference to our wood consumption. Everything seems so much better when winter is almost behind.
I seem to be coming out of my depression at last and have not had a binge all week. I do not feel I have lost any weight but will not worry about it.

In for repair Monday, Wednesday and Friday

Dear Bobshouse, I just want to let you know how very much I am enjoying reading your blog. Thank you so much. I did the "vindange" on a farm near Avignon many years ago and we were paid a ittle money, put up in a little room by the barn and fed and watered with as much wine as we wanted! After a long day in the fields Madame's voice would be heard "A la Soupe!" Fond memories!

Thank you. It is hard adjusting to this life but I am slowly getting there! It is always great in summer when the sun shines!
