    Wow, lots happened! Moving is a hassle... sending you encouraging hugs. And great that they wanna keep you in the good job, I will be praying for wisdom for you to know if it is a good place. Belated happy Christmas, and lots of good things for 2022!

    Sounds like you are working really hard on everything. Glad to hear you have some positives in your life, your exercise sounds great! 30 miles?! And is it the American football or soccer? I always get confused.
    I hope the moving will be finished soon, that is a real stress thing. Good luck with your new job!
    (ok.. this sounds mostly like a pile of one liners, but you have so much going on 😅 and I want to react on everything)
    And I'm so happy to see you around again

    Thank you so much everyone. Lovely to see that the Hive remains probably the nicest place on the internet.

    It's been far too long since I've been here.

    There's a lot going on. (As I'm sure there is for everyone!).

    The main ones for me are that we are moving house. This is ongoing, slowed by covid, and kinda stressful. And I've got a job. This is a mixed blessing. When I applied the covid situation seemed to be steadily improving. Not so much now. They like my work, want to turn my trial period into a permanent job, and so on. At the moment I'm on holiday. I'm working three-days-a-week with one in the office at the moment. I'll have to see how safe things feel as January 5th rolls around.

    And I've been really lucky. No covid for me or for anyone too close to me.

    In terms of exercise I returned to the taijiquan class, which most recently has been a twice a week class of 1.5 hours, one in person, one on zoom.

    And I've started playing football again! I play where I grew up once a week, games of about an hour. It's been the biggest positive in my life for a long time.

    I've also done quite a lot of walking. I did it at first in the summer to help me cope with a real anxiety spike. One day I walked nearly 30 miles and did several very long (for me) walks. I do love it and want to get back to it when the weather improves. I want to run too. And do muay thai workouts! What a lot. . .

    So I'm very lucky and hanging on in there. I have my problems: addiction, compulsive behaviours, mood swings, anxiety, but I keep working at it and, well, that's all you can do isn't it.

    I think I'd like to return to logging my exercise. And to making sure I do something every day.

    And I missed you all!

    I hope to try to get around some threads shortly.

    Belated Happy Christmas to everyone who celebrates.

    Will be cruising and looking for something to do shortly. x Love and hope to you all.
