Weekly Update | 12.12.2014

Hello my Leaves,

12 12 teehee I can't believe how fast this week has gone!

Apologies for this post being published so late but I was out socialising... *pause for stunned silence* ... yep. That's right. I left the house for something other than work :)

Go Chez!    Go Chez!

I wanted to try out a self defence & MMA class a few weeks (read: months) ago but chickened out due to my anxiety. It (the anxiety) has actually been worsening but my determination has increased in unison. I was a bit skittish at first but by the end of the one to one I felt like I have really achieved something, despite feeling physically and mentally wiped! Today was just an induction but I now need to decide which class I'm going to do :)

Also, it was Christmas Jumper day at work today so here is the obligatory photo:

We were raising money for Save The Children so I also HAD to buy some of the yummy cakes that colleagues had made...

I think today was the most exciting day of the week ^^, I was in a bit of a funk over the weekend but managed to turn it around for work and get all my work done. I also bought some Quentin Blake designed Christmas Cards AND managed to write and send them all. If that's not being organised and speedy I don't know what is!

Oh and the doctors went well - ish. They've confirmed that anxiety has reared its ugly head, as expected, but they also said I'm showing symptoms of moderate depression, not so expected. I know I've been a bit low lately but I never wanted to hear that term ever again, almost in denial :/ I feel like I'm approaching it in a much better frame of mind this time though and I want to do this without medication so here the journey begins...

How has your week been? Do you have plans for the next? I have a friend visiting this weekend and then the Work Christmas party on Friday which will be a barrel of tension until (and when) I get there :/

Have a lovely weekend!

Make your own choices!
