I have had the best day of my life so far! 🙂 I’m completely shattered but so so happy.
Well I suppose I will start at the beginning of the day. I woke up at 6:45am, which was way before my alarm lol. But didn’t get up till 7am. I was still tired but just couldn’t sleep anymore. I had a shower, got dressed and had some toast for breakfast. Then I took Roxy out for a walk and a wee. I came back and watched T.V for a little while and then my gf and her daughter came over. I made D a quick cuppa tea, before we had to leave as she was taking me to group. I gave her some money so they could look round the charity shops.
Group today was good. It was only an hour long as both usual therapists are on leave, so we had two other therapists to cover. Which was nice as one of them was my 1:1 and the other ran the group that I was in while I was waiting to join DBT. So it was great to have a quick catch up with her and tell her how I am doing etc. Again there was only 3 of us, so as usual I ended up doing a lot of the talking an interacting. Which I don’t mind but it gets tiring carrying the group along. But was SO glad today was only an hour long.
So D and K picked me up from group and we headed over to Bournemouth and we went to the Oceanarium. It was really great fun. I loved looking at all the different fish, otters and other little creatures. I’ve been there a million times, but I still love it and my girls made it so so special. We went and had some lunch, which was yummy! then we walked through the park and looked at the birds and I got the squirrels to come up real close to us. I said next time we will take some nuts to feed them. We then went back and looked some more at the fish. It’s so great once you have bought tickets you can go in and out all day. This time the otter family were all awake and running about, which was so amazing to watch them play and swim. There are 5 of them altogether, a mummy and daddy otter and 3 babies that they had last summer. I bought us all a year pass for the Oceanarium, so now we don’t have to pay each time we go, so we can now go whenever we want, which is so cool!
We then left as D had to go for a medical for her employment support allowance (benefits) She was a bit anxious about it, but I said she just had to describe how day to day life is when she is at her worst. I waited outside with K as there were somethings she needed to tell them that K doesn’t know about. But she did it by herself, so well proud of her for that. After we nipped up to my mates house. I am looking after her place while she is away. She asked me to look for something she needed me to post to her, but I couldn’t find it. So might have to go back and have another look.
So we came back to my place and chilled out and we watched Finding Nemo, which was a nice. I’ve not seen that film for ages and it kind of continued our fishy theme. We saw real nemo fishes at the Oceanarium. After the film we all went to the pub for some dinner, which was yummy K and I had chicken tikka masala! and D had scampi and chips. We had pudding too, K had a massive chocolate brownie sundae and she ate it all! she even ate all her dinner too! Man can that kid eat lol. D and I shared a hot chocolate fudge cake which was well yummy!
We came back to mine and said our goodbyes. It was sad but I am going back to stay with them both on Saturday, so only a day away. I think I am going to spend tomorrow catching up on sleep! I’m babysitting two little monkeys tomorrow night, so that will be nice. I’ve not seen them all in a while.
I have been blessed with such an amazing gf! and her daughter who is such a sweet kid. I love D with all my heart, body, mind and soul. I have never ever felt like this before. I feel so happy and contented being with her. I feel so relaxed around her, I can be totally myself around her. I don’t have to pretend or hold back, I can just be me because she accepts me for who I am and how I am, which I have never had before.
