Sounds like a lot of people are going through an awful lot of stress at the moment... (I know I have my fair share)... perhaps we should all share what helps in these moments... I'll start the list off:
  • a good wine, on the deck, in the sun (or even tucked under the umbrella in the rain), preferably with a friend or two.
  • grubbing thistles... funny how every one seems to have a particular face on it!!!!
  • a Shiatsu massage... aaaahhhh...
  • water fights with the kids... kept for hot days only...
Now it's your turn... add some more and perhaps something will appeal to one of us in our moment of extreme stress!!!!.. go for it guys...

Doing a crossword keeps you mind off most problems
Sitting in the sun as long as it is not burning
Wine - as kate said - and more wine. Grin

Going for a brisk walk/run with the dog somewhere scenic.
Yeah definitely wine or any booze for that matter.
I found stirring damsons and slowly removing the stones as they rose to the surface oddly therapeutic on weekend.
Housework but only if you are really desperate.
Watching a funny movie with a wine.
Listening to really boppy music, dancing around the kitchen always lifts my mood...preferably after a couple of wines.

Hopping on the fergie and topping a paddock or two. I'm in my own little world when I'm doing that, busy talking or singing to myself, on a different planet.
