Feeling very stressed and in a rut. Deadlines are looming and I've allowed depression to get the better of me... urgh :/

Does anyone know any good relaxing techniques? I've got a hospital appointment next week that I'm getting anxious about

    Breathing exercise. Just concentrate on the rhythm of your breathing.

    ^^^^ This. Breathe in for a slow count of 4, hold for 4, out for 4. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. And best of luck with the hospital.

    Breath is very important. You can add magnesium and the 'Rescue' from Bachs flowers

    I'm not bothered by the sexuality of my ice cream. Perhaps I'm bicesexual...

Heard back today from the graduate scheme - unsuccessful.. ah well. Hopefully I can find something else around the corner :)

    I'm hoping so :) thank you, it's kind of the way I'm thinking - missing out on this opportunity for a better one would be brilliant. Looked up a few new opportunities today, and I should hopefully apply to them over the next few days x

Apparently I've got to write Christmas cards. I had hoped to get away with it this year...

    It's the writing to which I object, rather than whether it's Yule or Christmas.

    I believe there's a postal strike next week - so it's too late to send any cards now. You can legitimately lay down your pen

Vert surprised me (to put it mildly) by buying me a tenor recorder. I've been saying for years I really wanted one, having loved playing the recorder (including alto and tenor) when I was at school, and I love the medieval sound. Very excited about this!

    It is. I've got long fingers but it requires a fair stretch. Good for the breathing I think and will help with my asthma :)

    Beautiful! I played the recorder at school but then focused more on flute. I would love to play recorder again though. There are some beautiful very medieval sounding recorder quartets and things! I especially love the sound of the wooden ones!

Someone in work is trying to arrange a yoga class - and is seeking to twist my arm into attending. All together now - "Aummmmm"

    Ooooo that looks good! Coventry is a bit far for me unfortunately. Maybe next time if I keep my eyes out when it is and make a plan to get there. :) . Do they do them at other locations ever?

    There are other historical/reenactment based markets around the country, at least one closer to you (I seem to remember that you live down south). Do a google?
