Bear with me, I'm in the pit with my cyclothymia.
I'm OK, I've been dealing with this **** for over 30 years now (though only diagnosed in last decade) I have strategies and support and I SHALL RETURN!
But I just need to climb out of the hole slowly otherwise I'll fall over again (you know when you stand up too quickly after sitting/lying down too long....well it's mental illness equivalent of that....just. need. to. take. it. slowly).
If you're new to the blog, here's a bit of an explanation about my mental health and the world's most fabulous support: Team Devyne.
But whilst we're all waiting for me to be back of 'normalish' form, here's some pics of how we annoy the neighbours in Arizona by whole-heartedly celebrating Cinco de Mayo every 5th May, with mariachi band music blaring, silly dancing, Mexican food and of course, much whacking of the piñata (I hope no one finds our wearing of sombreros offensive, it's our equalivent of wearing party hats).
And here's a soundtrack for viewing the pics:

It's one of our favourite songs from our Cinco de Mayo playlist, though unfortunately, not by our favourite band.....I beg you, if you like to laugh, you NEED to go to iTunes and check out El Zopilote Mojado by Mariachi Aguila Real....it's seriously worth the 99c or even just listening to the 1 min 22 secs of the preview. At least one of the violins is out of tune, and it is so beautifully bad....it's my favourite piece of Mexican music of all time, I'm in stitches every time I hear it.
Btw...I know we're not Mexicans or Americans but we do like to adopt as many of the USA's holidays as possible, and as it's a celebration of the Mexicans beating the French in Puebla in 1862, as Brits it's nice not to be the 'evil foe' for once....yep, 4th of July is coming, the time when I try to pretend I'm Canadian for a couple of weeks to avoid the cone of shame and taunts about Evil King George.
But I think I'm covering all national bases here:
OK then....off to take things easy (actually, I'm painting the TARDIS stash cupboard, the mathematics of panel sizes occupies the voices in my head and stops them dissing me), I WILL be back soon with lots more colourful silliness I promise.
