    Well, Jess has been home all day with a tummy upset and Katie came home from work in a right state as her boss is off sick, potentially long term, and she’s having to run the place on her own. So I’ve been doing the mum thing while moving very, very gingerly .....

    WOW! Katie put this on her Instagram page today. Queue floods of tears from a proud mummy

    “Today is a very important day for everyone to recognise and acknowledge the struggles too many people face daily. Everybody has either experienced mental health or knows somebody who suffers/has suffered. My ‘somebody’, who is especially amazing, is my mum, who has struggled with her mental health for almost three decades.
    My mum’s first ‘crisis’ (as she calls it) was when she was 16-years-old, however she continued to live undiagnosed until she broke down 11 years later, aged 27. Before this point she believed the way she felt was just the norm, little did she know how serious her illness was.
    15 years on from her diagnosis, she still struggles with the same issues, having her good days and bad days like anyone else who suffers the same. Except now she has so much more support from friends, family and doctors.
    I admire my mum completely for the way she’s dealt with her mental illness, always being very open with us about everything she’s going through - not to worry us, but to teach us that it’s okay to talk about your problems no matter what.
    I encourage any and every person who is suffering, young or old, to talk to someone about how they feel. My mum is so open with talking about her mental health and does so much volunteering work to help others with the same problems she’s dealing with, which is just amazing. It’s never too late to change things.

    Fall in love with taking care of yourself #worldmentalhealthday“

    Yes Paula, your daughter is a credit to you. I'm happy to say that Zoe too is exactly the same as your Katie.We're all lucky to have such empathetic kids. And it's down to educating our loved ones and friends about it without frightening them. No knowledge = no understanding, no help and awareness. It's pretty logical really isn't it?

    So, another day of cancelled appointments because of my back and Si had to cancel meetings to be able to take Polo to the vets this morning. Vet says Polo is 80% better but his leg is still infected and he still needs gabapentin for the nerve issue - in fact he’ll need gabapentin indefinitely.

    I’m struggling anyway but then I get post from DVLA to let me know they’re withdrawing my driving licence and reissuing a ‘medical’ licence which means it’ll be reviewed again in a years time. Feels like a kick in the teeth

    It's good that Polo is improving, just watch some videos and chill, if the weather down your place is like it is oop north then it doesn't inspire you to leave the house.

    Oh why are they revoking your license? Does that mean that you can or can't drive?
    Poor Polo!
    Your mood sounds really flat love, you OK?
