So I wrote two weeks of my diary today. Getting there! I missed the gym yesterday so I'll go now, feel anxious if I don't. Maybe have a couple of sweet drinks after with friends. Spoke to Joel on fone

He seemed to be criticising the fact I don't have a job, I took it quite personally as INFPs tend to do. I was aware of this so tried not to be too defensive.

Just spoke to my auntie her husband, they were very well and kind. I am very happy about that. What's more, they offered to pay for my flight back home in May. I can't believe it. #family #kindness

To think, I was nervous to call them in case they were in a bad mood... It's still sinking in, to be honest. I proposed coming back, rather on a whim, and to be met with this offer was a real surprise. Humbled. My mind has been opened to the idea...

I've caught up on one month out of four! Not bad for one sitting of #diary writing. It was difficult to go over what was happening 4 months ago, esp. with A, it all seems so ridiculous. Hindsight.

Today = gym, diary, calling family, analysing finances, reading, doing laundry. Then probably meet friends later, if I feel like it. First, time to freshen up. No bug bites again, that's good.

Feeling much better, exercise really makes a difference. My body feels more like home. Mind - body connection. Awareness. No bug bites last night, feeling relieved. Hostel guy's friend likes me :-/

You're right, H F. Thing is I only met this guy, let's call him Z because I forget his name, once. He doesn't stay here, but his friend (who I talk to) does. Anyway the next day his friend said Z wanted to me to come to a restaurant for a meal, so I
32x32
Binky B · 2d
just said to Z's friend, I'm really not interested in Z. Then Z came to the hostel again today, his friend saw me and said 'Z is out there, he wants to talk to you'. So again I just said I don't want to, and hid in my room!

A few red bites on my feet, worried that it's bed bugs in the new room. If they got on my stuff somehow, then I need to wash it all. I have a lot of stuff. It's expensive to wash things. Disappointed.
32x32
Binky B · 3d
Can't wash my jumper on hot, or many other clothes which are also fairly new. Can't throw away! Don't see a solution to this problem. No point moving hostels if I bring the bugs with me. Wish they'd never made me change rooms. Worried.

Binky is it possible for You to Google information? See what bed bug bites look like etc. Hugs

The hostel man told us to put all our stuff in black plastic bags and leave them in the sun all day. Then later I'm going to do a load of washing, especially the clothes I'm wearing, on hot. Buy the main thing is I'm trying to stay calm.

Thanks for advice Clint + H F. I'm pretty sure they are bed bug bites. I've googled it and I think we just gotta work together to try and get rid of them... I'm crestfallen but this has to be dealt with. Just praying we can overcome it before it getsworse

It's a pleasure, I really like it as it really enhances the cleaning and because this particular one is made for washing as it is water soluble! Try not inhaling too much when you are pouring into washing machine and I would use about 4 capfuls

Apparently a really mean lady had taken the space (but she's right, you're not supposed to save spaces for others), making it really small. Oh well, it was the first time I'd parallel parked since my test, I'd forgotten how to do it, so it was good
