Good afternoon everyone,
A quick update and a big thank you to everyone that has left messages on Facebook and/or sent me texts after my problems over the last week or so, I was sent a comment by a friend that was posted on Facebook and it really does sum up what I and many others go through when stress and depression gets hold;
"have lost many friends through my mood swings and not always answering the door/phone etc. The ones left are TRUE friends whom I love dearly yet there are days when I hate everything and everyone. I tend to fixate on things until I am in the depths on despair where everything seems pointless. I truly wish you well and remember you are never alone."
Afraid it is a bit of a long update and I'll be adding a few pics along the way...
I had arranged to collect in the Quadrant Shopping Centre before things went pear shaped on the Friday and Saturday, I was dreading it, stomach churning, nervous and feeling sick. By lunchtime it was starting to clear, the cats attracted quite a bit of attention, one little girl decided she wanted to play with Missy and chased her round even when Missy went under the trailer to escape the little girl followed! Missy wasn't in the best of moods for the rest of the day and I can't say I blame her, the Grandmother finally managed to catch her and took her home, the little girl that is...
Saturday was much easier for me and the cats, Missy far happier and wasn't chased by any little girls, I didn't think there were as many people as Friday but we collected more, £519.90 after the two days, thank you everyone.

Mark, Smudge and Missy
