Ep 5: Overload, Meltdown and Burnout
This week we discuss overload, meltdown, burnout and we mention shutdown which are experiences not always talked about as often as they should. Melissa explains block theory (version of spoon theory), Sophie moans about the stress of having a new kitchen being fitted alongside both discussing what each one is and how we go about dealing with each one. Also Sophie further moans about the kitchen and how awful roadworks and bus route changes are.
