Okay, managed to take my meds seven of seven this week (even if yesterday's timing was massively off - didn't wind up taking the medication I'm supposed to swallow first thing in the morning until about dusk). But it's one week of full compliance, and that's a Good Thing, given what's preceded it.

So, achievement one: 7/7 for the meds.

Searching for work - well, yesterday was a weird one, because I wound up feeling bleargh when I woke up (delayed reaction to Tuesday, I think) and as a result I didn't wind up actually looking for anything myself. However, I did get a call from an employer regarding an interview for a position the Disability Employment Services people put me up for, so I counted that. Other than that mess, I've managed my two job search efforts per day for the rest of the week.

Achievement two: 9/10 for jobsearch.

The knitting now measures 75.5cm (which means I'm about a third of the way through it). I only missed the five rows per day yesterday, and that was mainly because, as mentioned previously, I was feeling bleargh and was putting everything off until later. I got quite a lot accomplished on Thursday (mainly because when I went to visit the Disability Employment Services people, I wound up having to wait nearly an hour for my appointment), and I didn't take it with me to the interview yesterday because I thought it would give the wrong impression.

Achievement three: 6/7 for knitting.

In other minor triumphs, I cooked up some macaroni cheese from scratch (and macaroni and cheese) last night, because I was feeling the need for some comfort food. Turned out quite good - I added all the trimmings, which for me means I chopped up some spring onions and threw them into the dish with the hot pasta, and I added some chopped bacon to the sauce mix along with the standard ingredients (which included seeded mustard). Turned out very nice, although I may have under-estimated the size of the dish required, because there was a certain amount of overflow which will need to be cleaned off the oven before I use it again.

Congratulations, especially on the meds. I don't think some people realise just how hard it is to take medication at the same time every day. I'm not that organised, and it's rarely for a long enough period for it to become an unthinking habit.

And 75.5cm? That's a lot of knitting.

Yay on the knitting. I'm onto square 18 I think of a bunch of 15 cm x 15 cm granny squares I'm crocheting. The knitting I want to do I need no interruptions while I count.

And mmm macaroni cheese. And of course seeded mustard. I sometimes use keen's powder if I don't have any seeded but I much prefer the seeded mustard. I don't tend to have spring onions on hand so just use normal onions (which I cook up with the pasta). I haven't tried bacon but I do ham and/or mushrooms fairly often. And once when I had had a party and had one of those soft cheese things with chives & herbs in a spiral thingy, there was some of that left and it went into the cheese sauce and oh that was a good one.

So yay on meds, and all other achievements of the week.
