At the moment things are a tad hectic for no apparent reason , the days seem to be flying past . I think its because im sleeping so much it really isnt like me , i could snore 20 hours a day of late ...lol
But im starting to want to get out and do stuff again , not that i have the funds to do much , did get a laugh at some of the suggestions of cheap things for the middle aged to do articles in the press .
Join a walking group ...i live in the middle of a gorgeous country leisure resort area , i walk because im skint and have no fuel , plus im really antisocial
Book Club Anyone ? I have never understood the urge to sit together and discuss a book , I read everywhere even in traffic jams , im rarely more than a foot from a book , plus the stuff bookclubs read isnt what i would want to read .
Craft Clubs , I tried , I really tried , but it always went wrong , theres always some bloody know all , who wants to tell you how what your doing is wrong and they know how to make it better , then i switch to sarcasm mode and mince them , or its noisy and i cant function in a room where theres lots of chatter .
I hasten to add , none of this means that i have a mental issue or social phobia , years of kids on the autistic spectrum means im well aware I have a sound processing issues and struggle in a room full of people , parties and nightclubs as a teen were to be avoided where possible and you cant imagine the trouble i used to get in where all i could do was nod during a conversation ...lol .. My hearing is perfect , its been tested unpteen times , thats why the internets great for me , i never have the sound on the puter , i love silence . People always assume im deaf if im ignoring them , but i just cant pick up individual conversations from most background noise and i do have to lipread a fair bit . My friend has a son of 9 with a similar problems and he spends most of his time with huge sound deadening headphones on , back in my childhood they just tried to beat your weird out of you , but my gran just gave me wax earplugs , she had the same problem .
