The adventures of Miss Bella

Last night I really wanted, needed, a good sleep. So I decided to lock the cats out of my bedroom   I also was feeling really hot so I opened the window in my room 
Another reason to shut the door as the wood heater was still keeping the rest of the house warm
If I had not made this decision I don't think the rest of the night would go gone the way it did
Apparently, and we don't know exactly how, but I suspect it was while the kitty litter was being cleaned before we retired for the night, little miss Bella had got out into the night 
Unbeknownst to me of course, so I slept like a little baby all night .
Now I have a doctors appointment at nine thirty this morning. So I didn't even put the alarm on to swim. I figured I sleep in get up get organised and go.
But at six this morning I can hear meowing at my window. I swear it sounds like Bella. But how can this be? She is nice and warm in the lounge with the fire going and sleeping with Agatha.
Little miss muffet had decided it was cold and she wanted her breakfast so she knew to come to mummy's window. 
We were very glad she was safe and sound, but ohhhh she got a telling off. Naughty kitty 
She on the other hand. Had her breakfast and promptly curled up and fell asleep 
If she could only talk. I wonder what she had got up to all night long 
Just very grateful I am
See ya

Very tired, and a little angry at myself

On Monday I felt really good so I decided to prune my roses. As you can see it's been a while so I got stuck in and got going. I turned this
Into this. Unfortunately I missed the signal that I was tired and I over did. Now being Wednesday the post exertion all malaise has kicked in and I am feeling very sore and sorry for myself. 
I did spend yesterday just resting but obviously not quick enough. So today there was no swimming and I will be resting again until it's time to go to knitting group. I will make the effort otherwise I will just be miserable sitting at home alone 
Plus I finished this over the weekend and I really want to put it into he charity pile before it gets sent off. 
So there is my story. My OCD is kicking in and the roses left are really annoying me. But I need to listen to my body and not do any more till I have recovered from my crash. 
How do you cope? Do you over do and then pay the price? 
I'm not sure what the answer is. But I know that I will get back up and get back out there because my mental health is just as important. 
Enjoy hump day
See ya

My wonderful fantastic friend has just come back from the USA.  I gave her some money and asked her to get me something special. But she has spent more than I gave her and come back with this. The yarn cutter is a present from her to me but the hook set is sooooo fantastic. It will save me getting sore hands. 
I have seen these on Pinterest and other places but I have not found them here 
So a very spoilt lady i am and so very grateful to her 
Shirley you are the best. Thank you so very much. I will think of you everything I use one 
Can't wait to start my nest project with one

Sunday morning

Look how big. Most of the timber Fran is finished. There are some finishing off bits and bobs but I think the boys did an awesome job. It really is much bigger than I expected. I'm a happy girl. It will look great when finished
While the boys were outside busy working. I was inside creating. I'll finish the blanket part today. It will go into the charity pike at knitting group. 
Yesterday to keep them from being underfoot and hurt should anything fall we locked the dogs up at the workshop. Hubby forgot to go get them before bed and decided that they could stay there. But around one o'clock this morning we heard the chickens start to carry on. Yup a fix in the hen house. So after chasing it away the dogs were brought back. Happy to say no further interruption to our sleep. 
At least the dogs now know we know they work hard all night long on guard duty lol
Enjoy your Sunday

Wintery weather

Last night and today the wind is blowing. The rain is coming down and the temp is hovering in the low teens. (Celsius) 
This has made my pain levels go up and the combination of pain and wind noise has kept me up half the night. 
I'm tired, sore and grumpy
Not a good day for me
So I'll stay inside and maybe watch some comedy to help me laugh.
What to you do to distract yourself from your pain and tiredness? 
I hope your all having a better day
See ya

Going potty!

No not toilet training lol  I'm getting into my pot plants again. 
I decided I liked my peacock where he was so I revitalised the old planter and but some seedlings in 
Once they grow it will look lovely I think . 
Had extra seedlings so I pulled these out of storage and planted them up too. I hope they will give me lots of colour in 6-8 weeks. Right when the dreary days of winter will really need it. 
And today's effort. I just ran into Aldi to get some mince and I saw this. I thought. I know just where you should live. I also got the fern at Aldi too. Bonus!
I think it really spruces the place right up. And red is a happy colour I think 
So I got my gardening fix yesterday and today. I wonder what tomorrow will bring lol
See ya
