...a bit overwhelmed. Lots of things competing for attention in my head right now - short term (is tea cooked yet), medium term (what about that lesson I haven't planned? What am I going to say at the two sessions I have agreed to give at a regional conference? What date should we go to visit my parents?) and long term (What about younger daughter's GCSE options? Will I ever complete an MA?)
... very tired. I need to get to bed earlier and use my "free" time more profitably.
...somewhat disorganised. Housework needs more time, bills to pay, letters to file.
...scared and childlike. Longing to hide away. Feeling alone; missing J, knowing I won't see her for some time yet.
...stretched. the needs of others are taking on a much greater priority than my own wellness. I am not sure how to address this.
