I suddenly realised that the days are flying past and I haven't really been around - just dipping in and out occasionally. One of the side-effects oof this "illness I don't actually have!!" is that I find it hard to concentrate and focus on anything at all some days. The aches and poor sleeping making that worse, I know, but it is doubly frustrating.
No work today, which means that the bank will be sad, but I am determined to both rest and do some catching up ... and (if I feel motivated) do a bit more fence painting.
When I arrived at M&D's it was to be greeted by Jiffy (as ever), to show me his new hair-cut. Jackie comes and collects him every 2 months, and off he goes for his beauty treatment ... more than I ver get!
The weekend as ever was hectic, which doesn't help the rest of my week, as it does sap my "coping" mechanism. But it's good to be able to help mum & dad to cope with life. Although I have the garden looking "OK" it isn't as great as when Mum used to do it. She was very into small plants - whereas I am happy if I can keep most of the weeds away! Anyway here are is a quick look as to what it was looking like this weekend .... complete with guardian angel, of course -
And, here are a few close ups of the flowers ... nothing to do with my care, they just managed to survive me!
And, last but not least ....
Wishing act3scene1 a very happy birthday - and a lovely year ahead.
