    Re: anxiety has taken over

    Hi Rad,
    Just to bring you up to date, being how i haven't spoke for so long.
    Im sorry to here about your partners mum, that must of been a very hard time for you all, i hope your family member with cancer has had a good
    prognosis and is doing well.
    I have had a pretty ruff time recently with my mum. She took ill 3 weeks ago, had a stroke and was taken into hospital for treatment. After 3 days in there she had another small stroke which altered her personality completely, after this she just went down hill. Mum past away during the early hours of yesterday morning peacefully age 87. Im staying in her bungalow at the moment with the monumental task of sorting out her affairs.
    Although this is a very sad time, i am still positive about the future.
    Still doing the furniture restoration, but i do think i will be going back into engineering to earn a proper wage again.
    Anyway, i will say goodbye for now, and hope you will give me an update, hopefully we will have better news to talk about soon.
    All the best wishes, and sending love, your old mate Otterman.

    Dear Otters,

    So sorry to hear about your mum. That was back in November and here we are in Jan 2020. I hope you have managed to sort things out at her home and that her funeral went as well as it could have. I am sure Christmas time you spent lots of time thinking about her. Cant have been easy.

    Do let me know how you are Otters, I will login and look out for any messages. I got incredibly busy with work and family requests and so have been away from the site for a long while. It was good to hear you are still doing the furniture thing but it sounds like very hard graft. When you feel well enough, you must find a way back into engineering. How is the van? How are the dogs? Are you in good shape? feeling steady? Eating OK?

    I've been incredibly surprised at the work that came my way last year. It got me distracted from worries and rebuilt my self worth. It dried up around November and actually one client didn't pay up all they owed. They seem in financial trouble. Strange for me I am not panicked. More like I am in no-mans land, but I managed to save a decent sum and so I am good for a while yet. I also feel able to control anxiety for now. I am looking for a property renovation project to try and make money on. Ive done that many times over my life. I learned plenty from my dad and I have done plenty of my own homes up over the years.

    I bought a big wardrobe for my daughter's bedroom and added bookcases each side over Christmas. It involved taking elements to pieces and adding depth to shelves, new moulding etc. Bought the main bit from a charity shop and had the bookshelves already. I'm well pleased.

    You recall my former client who never served notice? Well in the end I got some help from a lawyer and prepared a legal letter. They were shocked but lets see if anything comes of it. They made it known to a mutual contact that the will find a way to turn things on me. I will give you more details another day. But they dont seem ready to play by the book.

    My girl is growing up fast and Ive had some good times with her recently. Just read a book with her at bedtime. David Walliams from little britain wrote it. Its pretty good!

    Take care Otters. I will say a prayer for your mum and also for you. Wishing you well for 2020.

    Your mate,
    Rad

    Hi Rad,
    Still in the land off the living, sorry for not getting back sooner. We dont make the best of pen pals do we? lol
    My world was well and truly rocked with the passing of my mum, the nature of it was shocking without going into too much detail.
    For a couple of weeks i was on a knife edge and thought i would go off the rails again, but that didnt happen
    thank god.
    I started a new job in February at an engineering firm in yorkshire, its doing what i am used to and i know the owner too. They are letting me work
    4 days a week so i get the benefit of a long weekend back up here at the van.
    Mums bungalow is taking some selling, not had much interest in the place which has surprised me as its in such a nice spot.
    Smudge and Jess are both well and enjoying there lives as am i.
    Im so happy that work has been going so well for you, and you are managing to stay positive. The house renovation would be something i would relish
    its always satisfying when you do it yourself and take a step back to admire what you have achieved.
    Dont know how long this new job of mine will last as the company always seems to be struggling for money, but i will just keep my
    head down and take the wage every week for the time being.
    We must make the effort to correspond more often than we do lol.
    All the best for now my friend, hope to here from you soon.
    Your friend as ever
    Otterman...

    Hi Otters,

    I hope u r feeling ok. Itís terrible to feel like you are about to hit a bad patch again. So sorry about your mum. Keep soldiering on. I hope that job continues. Never forget we are survivors.

    I will reply properly soon, things not desperate for me, ticking over and hoping the Corona thing gets under control soon.

    Take care,
    Rad
