This week I had a lovely time with my mindful photography group and also an MDUK meetup with Catherine Woodhead, the CEO of MDUK and Nicole Beebee South West Regional Development Manager, for a walk round Slimbridge.
I have wanted to visit West Wycombe again since my first visit last year. It’s where the opening scenes in Labyrinth were filmed. I hadn’t managed to stay long that time, so last week I decided to Return to the Labyrinth!
My wheelchair issues came to a head recently with the power module failing, this meant a week in bed trying to fight off anxiety and depression.
On Tuesday I met up with some friends to discus starting a local photography group, focusing on mindfulness and other things Ruth had taught us in our mindful photography course.
With the Easter weekend weather looking good I wanted to make the most of it. I managed to visit Mallards Pike Lake, SymondsYat, Worcester, Slimbridge and Newark Park.
It was the first sunny day in a while where I’ve actually been able to get out without being too stressed. Slimbridge is a lovely place, although it will be nicer once they’ve finished all the building work, I’ll probably hold off on renewing my membership until then.
January hasn’t been the best month, wheelchair issues, care issues, Mum has had an operation on her knee, I’ve been feeling very stressed & my anxiety has been high, this along with feeling generally ill & low has meant I haven’t got out much.
Last Sunday was a really beautiful sunny day in Gloucestershire so I decided to visit WWT Slimbridge, my friend and her daughter were supposed to be coming too, unfortunately their car broke down so it was just me and grumpy (Mum). I am not sure why but my anxiety has started playing up again (last night won’t of helped, but that’s another story), I started getting anxious before setting off, feeling a bit queasy, hyper alert etc. it’s getting annoying and ruining a bit of the enjoyment of going out, but I pushed passed it and by the time we arrived was pretty calm.
