another day, a little duller

Well, that's another day of processing information for young people. Yay. And today's irritation has been at the net scavengers who hover around small charities waiting to squat their domain names. I'm sick of clicking through last year's link to a supportive survivor group with a good focus on young people only to be assaulted by browser-gropers and pop-ups (no advice please, I'm on a work machine). A few other things seem to have changed focus a bit, too. Should I still be linking to http://www.stressbusting.co.uk ? It certainly diffused any stress I was feeling, but that was because I was busy laughing explosively at "residential Stress Guru, Carole Spiers, international broadcaster, author and professional speaker". (I think they might mean "resident stress guru", although residential stress is a big feature of my life.) I have doubts. On the bright side, though, when I walked through the churchyard this morning there were primroses in flower. Unless you're likely to see me and my digital camera later, though, you'll have to take my word for it.

my first primrose

Edited to include evidence of the primrose.

The test on that site says I need professional help, but how do I know it's not funded by some branch of the Psychotherapist Promotion Board? And also, is Jennifer Aniston really qualified to advise me? Actually, given the information is free, I guess it goes without saying that she isn't.

Funnily enough it told me to seek professional help too, but as I already am...

I went to the staff wellbeing fair the other day and had a lovely free, 10 minute reflexology session... now I could cope with that every day :-)

Hm... yes, I should probably get some massage therapy. That certainly can't hurt!

Thanks for the xmas card btw - I feel guilty for not sending any or getting in touch, but you've probably worked out I've been living in a building site...
hope to catch up soon anyway.

Oh my god, Carole Spiers looks like Herman Munster's sister!

Just one glance at her photo and I'm considerably less stressed and depressed...

You're very lucky it's early for primroses - none in Milton Keynes yet. Particularly galling as the water board dug up our snowdrops when replacing the leaking water main last summer so nothing before crocusses. I shall look at it as a planting oportunity.

Re: Primroses
They're not mine -- my primroses are resolute in their unfloweringness (nonflorescence?); these are municipal primroses, and probably a hardier breed. And closer to the heat of the town centre.
