what a rough week - Warning Flesh photos!!

Or fortnight .. Geez..

From near drowning.. to emtional highs to a panic attack on Sunday to me stressing about a close friend going through emotional pain and my husband's woes. I am over it all and I want to hide in my blanket fort

Worked the whole weekend on am shift and so was happy to be able to got work be train. phew. 
Mother was away and so I had her dog at my house. He kept Hank busy and Hank was ok with it to a point, but as soon as anyone was close to me, the dog would force himself between me and the other person. 

After a skuffle on my bed with Hank keeping Basil away from me, there was a peace settlement and we managed to get along for the rest of his stay. Took 2 days before Basil would even eat.
Had the Psycologist on friday, and she was happy with my progress and my next appointment is a follow up for outstanding issues with some family. She was happy with my recovery from the weekend previously. My methodical brain kept me calm and what is keeping me calm still. I have to go and face the beach again soon though. And not alone. I'll be fine.
I loved my OOTD this day.

City Chic Top and Jeans. 
Popped into Macathur to sort out my Dive course payment.. hitting up my mortgage. Whilst there, I ran into Jen from Picton. A lovely lady and we went for a coffee and sat in the sun to chat. Was lovely to be out with a friend. I should do it more often. (With what time? Sigh) 
After moving all my money, I tortured myself and tried on the new City Chic bras. 

Pretty Crop top. I thought I may wear it one day. :) Or not.. I don't know. I have middle issues.

Sunday I was a mess and was anxious most of the day. I was going to confront someone, but wheh I had the chance I had a full blown panic attack. This lasted for ages. FFS. Ridiulous. Have only had one this bad before, and its a habit I don't want to develop.  Ugh

Home and Mother and Brandon were there.  Was lovely to have family/friends around to bring my brain to a slower thought pattern.

This night, poor Hank had an allergic reaction to his flea treatment and was in a lot of pain.. I sat uo with him and put cream on his ear.. we got no sleep.. alas, I had a 2am wake up. Sigh.

Monday - Am shift.. was lovely to be dressed up and not in Jeans all the time. I hadf to stay back an hour for some IIMS training as they are upgrading the system.
I popped into HN for some GoPro accessories but they didn't have most of whatI was after. Boo.
Pet barn was an expensive exercise, I  was after a simple check chain and I eneded up with some toys, a leash and the check chain. EEP.
The dog was so excited that I had bought him a collar that we went out to test it. I was still in my long work dress. hahaha. Wore the dog out after only two laps of the oval. I still find it hard to control his super excitement.

Tuesday brought me some bras and a pair of bootleg jeans. With winter coming, I need to wear boots and my skin tight jeans look at tad odd with my ankle boots.

(More Skin!!)

botleg Jeans

I like the boot leg bit I am a huge fan of my high waisted jeans and so am again paranoid about my two rolls at my middle.


I was partway to work when I get a call. Could I PLEASE do night shift. I did have a medical for diving (I tale presciption drugs and hence needed  a full medical) and Dudley had kindley arranged mine for Wednesday 8am. I had errands to run so after some consultation with mother, I agreed to do the shift. Got off at Macathur and did my errands before dropping in on mother. I was there for a lot longer than I expected and so by the time I got home, I only managed 3 hours nap before my trainto get to night shift.
At least I got some Hank treats whilst at mother's place.

The 2100hrs train was cancelled and ni bus was provided, luckily, I convinced work to get me a local taxi who took me to Campbelltown. Upon arrival at CBT, I realised I didn't have my wallet. No Medicare, no ID anf no train ticket, ARGHHHHHJHHHNOOOOOOOOOOO

Did make it to work. :-) Had a west shift and it was flat out with freight. Good so see.

Wednesday.. which was really a continuation of Tuesday.. I finished work and met Dudley to get my medical done. He kindly fed me, yoghurt and museli and I sat for my poking and prodding. Interestingly.. the medical centre scales stated I was 87kg in jeans and boots whilst my home scales state I am over 89kg naked and with no food. I'm confused.

I have a good heart and a good set of lungs and adide from my balance issues, I was given the tick of approval. I got a lift home :-) so I could sleep.

The sleep was only two hours though, BAH before I had to head back to work. The silver lining was I could finish at midnight instead of 6am on my first day off. YAY!!!

On the way to work I spotted a rainbow, Stunning and made me smile for hours. ]

I watched Heath's ship pass Newcastle and then before work I saw it sit outside of the heads. Waiting for sunrise. Noise complaints from the Sydney Toaster people.

With my friend back in Sydney I crashed and slept until 10am. Not that long really as Dudley had dropped me off at 0130hrs.

I headed out for a late night talk with a friend. 
I had spent the day treadmilling and sleeping.. interchangeably. I managed to get back to a little runnning. Brandon came over to talk and he helped me take stuff to Debbie at the station. Thanks Brandon!!! 
I had so much sleep debt that I keep flaking out through out the day and Iwas told I had deep black circles under my eyes. Ugh. My OOTD was Shorts and a singlet top, the day being over 30C (YAY foe Australian Autumns) and the evenign was balmy so Jeans and I braved the crop top. Go me!!

David was home when I returned from my outing and he helped me with the new lens case.YAY!!!

Today is pouring with rain and I my official outing was delayed... I stopped to shot the passing steam train in the rain but my exposures were all wrong, I am soooo out of practice.  OOPS.

Steamfest this weekend and today, a lunch with mother. I am sure she will keep me busy this weekend, She has a list of things to do. EEP.
