#BEDN 6 - National Stress Awareness Day

Stress is something that affects everybody in one way, shape or form. I can be a total stress bunny, and whilst I can't offer a perfect solution, I find the act of of sharing your stress- however trivial you think other people might find it, is one of the best ways to over come it. People will share their experiences if they relate to them, they might be able to problem solve with you, or you might just feel better for knowing... it's not just you.

This in mind, here are a few things I'm a stressing about just presently....

Current stress point- that my boobs won't fall out of anything on Monday night.  T & I are attending the Lord Mayor's Banquet. I made the error of shoving this white tie event into Google lately, only to realise what a big deal it is, and my dress is quite low in the front. Sounds silly right..... Things I don't want to be famous for: flashing in front of the Prime Minister, being topless amongst the various diplomats in attendance.... are you getting the picture? I'm presently awaiting the arrival of a stick on bra. We'll see how that goes! Oh..... and have you seen the shoes I'm trying to break in this week?

My to do lists are out of control at the moment. Generally, I like having a paper diary both for personal and for work use, I find it much easier to keep track of tasks that way, but the last week or so, the lists seem to never end, with at least one item being added for another crossed off. I know there's light at the end of the tunnel, but in the mean time the first 10 mins and last 10 mins of each day are spent reviewing lists, writing lists, wondering what I've forgotten from a list and wondering if I need a day-to-page diary for 2014 rather than a week-to-view one. Livin' the life....

To Do lists

And my bike. I'm currently waiting for new tyres for my precious new bike. Turns out there's LOADS of broken glass on the route I use to/from work, and therefore heavy duty puncture protection tyres are required, this made evident by the massive puncture cause by glass still sticking out of the tyre when I got home last Thursday with a flat rear tyre. Yay for this AWESOME eBay deal (pair of Schwalbe Marathon tyres for £45 inc delivery) when the tyres are usually £35 ish a pop, but Boooo for Royal Mail and needing to get down and dirty with the bike when they do. Sounds irrelevant, and to most people it probably is, but when it's my free mode of transport and my only real exercise, being without it is quite stressy for me.
