It’s been a busy week and I’ve been struggling to get my reflexology assignments finished. I still have so much to do. It’s all my fault. I’ve left everything too late again. I have so much on my mind. My youngest son with ASD had an epic meltdown at school. It’s such a learning curve as he gets older, we just don’t know what to expect. The eldest needed to have his brace removed, sounds simple but we have to take him to the next town over to get that done.
Mentally I’m in a low place and it’s hard to see how my future is going to pan out. I’m currently under assessment for autism. I don’t know how I feel really. If it’s a yes then I have answers but if a no, where do I go next for help with my mental health. Yet I know how poor the support is in my area for adults with ASD….
Anyway, finally I got to see the first episode American Horror Story: Apocalypse. I think the US are quite ahead of us lowly Brits. I’m still mulling it over. Did I enjoy it? Was it too weird even for me? It was certainly very camp. It was nice to see Kathy Bates back. I’m sure it’s setting up the season. I’m looking forward to the Murder House/Coven crossovers. However, although last year I gave a review for each individual episode…I don’t think I have enough to say or a firm opinion based on what I’ve seen so far. The boy couldn’t wait to see more…so he was more impressed than me.
Also watching: A Discovery of Witches. I read the books AGES ago so I can’t remember much of the story line just the main characters but I am so enjoying it. The boy isn’t interested at all. Maybe there’s too much love interest but I thought the filming locations were exquisite, I liked the chemistry between the characters and enjoying the story line.
Reading: I’ve just finished reading S.E England’s “Tanners Dell”. It’s set in the UK, with a satanic black magic vibe. This is the second in the series, I read the first “Father of Lies” a while ago. Number 2 in the series is even better. A few weeks ago I also read “The Owl Men” by the same author, which is based after the events of the trilogy. I loved that too. I will write reviews for them soon. However, I’ve just started, a NetGalley review book, “The House by the Cemetery” by John Everson. I am also reading, Everyday Enchantments by Maria F. DeBlassie. Any wonder I am not getting my reflexology coursework done!!!!
Doing: Autumn walks. Pom Pom making. Crafts. Buying Halloween decorations ( I did try to do an un-boxing thing, which I may share but I have to use my husbands arms as I have Body Dysmorphia Disorder and can’t stand videos/photos of myself….even my arms, the anxiety would be unbelievable).
Actually I have an intriguing photo I took yesterday at the cemetery which I will share. When I took the photo, I was attracted by the autumn light on the trees behind the graves. I checked the photo after taking it and saw nothing strange. It was only when I got home I saw the grey smudge with the glowing green thing on the left hand grave. My phone camera is pretty awesome, top of the range and I’ve never had this kind of light flare/smudge before or after on any other photos. It may be nothing….but I shall share it anyway because I’m intrigued. The name Brocklesby kept appearing as well as I walked around the cemetery, not sure what that signifies. Here are the photos below, no filters and I’ve zoomed in on the bit that intrigues me. Might be a light flare but I’d like to think it might be a nature spirit or something ghosty.
