2017 Catch-up

It's been a while since I last wrote a blog on here, so its catch-up time.

Well after a great half a year with a great guy, going to festivals and enjoying each others company, things went down hill. We split up over something daft, and those of you that know me well, will know I am not that good when it comes to break-ups (friends or other) and tend to fall apart.

Well that's what happened, and for the last few months have been on antidepressants, which have been messing up my sleep pattern, and my get up and go most days has almost gone.

Health wise, apart from going down in to depression, I am now on an inhaler for my breathing (cold, hot and windy weather makes it really bad)

I am reliant on my car even more now for getting out, can't do buses or walk that far without getting out of breath. My housing support worker decided earlier in the year to put in an appeal for my PIP, which is coming up now later this week.

I recently had my medical for ESA, still waiting to hear about that/

I am trying to keep going with life, trying to find things to fill my days with. So far I am a member of the Rose Hill Quarry Community Park Group and also the Seaview Green Space, and also go for a cuppa and chat every Thursday in a local Bonymaen church.

Have made some really great new friends, but do want to thank the following for being supportive over the last few months - Juliet, Su, Janet, Gemma, Bill, Bradley and also Angela.

Me and Angela have been through a bad patch, she is a strong woman, and its great to be back in communication with her again.

UK and the EU

So the people on the UK have had the vote, to 'remain' in or 'leave' the EU... the vote was a close one to leave, which has caused no end of problems. The pound has lost value, companies have decided to ditch the UK and its workers and shift to other countries, Scotland want to go it alone and Northern Ireland wants to reunite with Eire and leave the UK. David Cameron is to stand down ( real loss there then!), Jeremy Corbyn won't stand down from Labour even though he cabinet is jumping ship. One thing that Labour said during it's 'leave' campaign was that the NHS was to get an extra £350m a week... which they now say 'sorry this won't happen' a out and out lie from them then - which when people saw this made people vote Plaid Cymru leader, Leanne Wood said in Cardiff earlier today ' We have to hold the leave campaigners to the vow they made during the EU campaign, including an extra £350m for the NHS every week. We ne

Had first part of my vaccine - edited 14th March

So, Saturday I had the first part of the Covid vaccine . I had the Oxford AstraZeneca one. Don't get me wrong, I am over joyed to have been called up for it, but the side effects since are not too good, but as people keep telling me, "it's a sign it is working", geee, thanks for that! Before I go any further I want to say a massive thank you to AstraZeneca and also the University of Oxford, and the Swansea Bay NHS health board for getting this out. During yesterday afternoon my arm started hurting and then I started feeling as if I had a head cold coming on. Later in the evening my mind got a bit foggy. Day two since first part of vaccine jab,  I was woken at about 5am this morning. Feeling worse,  , woke up in a pool of sweat, and somehow managed to squash my pillow up and out of its pillowcase in the night. The sweat I could have done without, it was horrible waking up to that, when all I wanted to do was stay in bed, waking up in sweat just made me have to get up s

#Brexit 2 month's away

#BREXIT isn’t far off, but Mrs. May’s plan crashed out during a vote in Parliament. At the moment lots of companies are planning on moving from the UK, and those that are staying are planning on scaling back. UK regions such as Wales , Northern Ireland and Scotland would have been entitled to a 22 per cent raise in support from the EU under the budget plans for the 2021-2027 period, up from the €10.6 billion or £9.3 billion that the UK receives in the current 2014-2020 budget package, according to the rep ort, by a network association of European regions. This funding loss will be most keenly felt in two regions: Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly , and West Wales and the Welsh Valleys . These are classed as ‘less developed regions’, and currently receive most of the UK’s regional funding. The UK must not crash out with a #NoDealBrexit , it would be far better for one of these to happen: 1: #Remain 2:  #ThePeoplesVote 3: stay in the #CustomsUnion 4: enter
