I guess it serves me right

I’ve been doing too much, and I’ve been going for too long 
I forget, when I’m feeling good, that I’m not your normal healthy person 
I forget, in the midst of my day to day life, that if I over do I will pay dearly
I forget, in my arrogance, that I do not own my body. But that the monster inside me does 
So today I’m paying for it 
All these symptoms and a few more 
So I’ve looked in the mirror and told myself. 
How stupid were you  
I will rest today 
I will nurture myself 
And I will try to be kind 
I hope I will at lest be over the pain by tomorrow, the fatigue I can push past. 
But the pain, it’s soul destroying 
Well it is today

I’ve put all books and DVDs away 
Omg. So many books, photo albums, and DVDs 
But lots of boxes have been emptied. 
I’ll be able to go into my sewing room now and organise that, give it a good clean and maybe get back to some crafting 
But not today 
I’ve done something terrible to my left knee, I’m limping and I can’t bend it 
So I think I may soak in a bubble bath, then put on my pjs and relax for the rest of the day! 
Another step closer to being done 
See ya xxx

Installation complete

Last week book cases were put together but didn’t have doors on them 
They weren’t bolted to the wall either 
So Chris our wonderful friend came over to help finish them off 

There was a lot of discussion on which was the best way to attack the job 
Eventually it was decided to just take one book case down at a time and instal the doors 

 There is a centre thin unit that won’t have a door. It was placed in the centre of the 
Wall and bolted into place. 
We then began assembling the doors and fixing them onto the book cases 
First one took the longest. With the the last one hardly taking any time at all 

Now my job to arrange the shelves and put everything away 
But I’ll start that either tomorrow or during the week 
Kneeling down and bending over has hurt my back 
In fact my knee made a very worrying sound, twice! 
So it’s currently up and resting 
What do you think? 
I love it. It’s exactly what I wanted 
More progress. Soon it will all be done 
See ya xxxx

This is Agatha. Agatha loves to lay around, especially in front of the fire 
She also loves to give me hair makeovers while I sleep! 
But Agatha had decided she doesn’t like to be brushed 
She slowly slowly has just become too hard to brush and groom 

So this is Agatha now 
Been to the vet, had her fur shaved off and her nails clipped. 
Remember the hair styling while I sleep. Well her nails really don’t feel nice on my head! 

So right now Agatha doesn’t like me very much. Which is fine 
I mean I have starved her since six last night, too her far away from the fire and made her go through 
The indignity of being totally shaved 
And to top it off I won’t let her go outside or eat anything until five!
I can give her a little water, but right now she won’t come near me 
Oh well. She doesn’t look like she’s starving to me lol 
All actions have consequences. Now maybe we can get back to letting mummy brush her 
See ya xx

Mother’s Day 2018

Mother’s Day today was a relaxed one. 
Except for flat packs being delivered lol 

Luckily for me, my beautiful daughter in law came to visit and helped get it all going. 
She’s the flat pack queen! 
Here she is hammering away 
Not too shabby with the tools 
Yes that’s wonderson watching and being a supervisor lol 

Here is hubby. See the concentration on his face 

This is what we achieved today. 
Me I did what I always do 
I feed everyone lol 
Doors next and then fasten them onto the wall 
After that I get to play around and fill them with all my books, dvds, cds and nick nacks 
Already the room feels more homey 
To all the mums and those in mothering roles. 
Hope you had. Happy Mother’s Day 
I know I did 
See ya xxx
