Balancing the energy!

Having been home now for over a week I am slowly picking up the pieces of my old life.
For months after my husband died I spent most days in splendid isolation here in the old farmhouse. This was my choice. I repelled boarders often whilst I slowly came to terms with a new way of life.
On the cruise I realised that I was enjoying the daily conversations with people I'd never met before...there was always someone to talk to wherever I went.
So now I've changed tack. I have activities lined up, people to talk to every day and this started on Monday.
Today I am tired....
I am visiting an old friend this afternoon. The rest of the week is planned too...
Maybe a rethink of this situation is needed...
Somewhere between constant activity and being completely alone for days is now my next aim...
It's all a question of balance...
Yesterday's trip to the village gave me several conversations. This is normal...at this time of the year none of the people I bump into are tourists...so getting down there a couple of times a week is essential.
I have started to eat a bit more too this week...running on empty is not a good idea... All of these thing I know, have always known , acting on them is different...
But first I need a rest!

  1. I sympathise I am trying a balancing act. I wasn't enjoying being alone all day. Mornings spent pottering the afternoons were long, but Igot out the jigsaw puzzle that Ron and I started last winter
    We loved our jigsaw doing the 1,000 piece jigsaws with no pictures caled wasgij I am happy to say I am realy enjoying it. and I am much better than I thought at doing them. Try it Jean it's an ideal activity for one. I have a Jigsaw roll so that it can be put away. Tomorrow will be strange I am cooking for friends , now I am not sure about my entertainiing alone, but I can only try.
