we had a family day here in dorset today (so apologies for e-mails not being answered!) my mum, sam and her boyfriend andrew came to celebrate swampys birthday...sam complete with home made chocolate cake which is so good. she also directed to me to a website to give me an idea of a christmas present...i must admit they appeal to me too!
earlier i had to go over to a nearby village for my first ever flu jab...did it sting? yes it did! and i was the youngest person there which felt a bit strange...i felt guilty as if i had not been looking after myself properly, isn't that odd?
my family left a short while ago, so while swampy was watching football (i hate football...cannot even stand to hear it...so i am listening to the dolmen)i decided to embark on a project i first thought of a few days ago.
my M.E has been particularly bad this last week, reaching its ultimate yesterday where i made it to about 2pm, then spent the rest of the day either on the bed or in bed...the pain in my muscles and joints was unbearable.
so today, feeling considerably better, i decided to follow through with the new project...warm fires and wool blankets...and a blog was born...i didn't want to keep posting here about my illness or diabetes so decided to blog it elsewhere, and hopefully provide a place for others to share and vent about their own health problems.
the skies here in dorset, well down in our valley, are clearing for the first time in several day and right now the sun is trying to break through the clouds.
our resident hedgepig, that lives in our 350 year old lean-to has been very busy, leaving not only small hedgehog poop's in our back yard, but also the back end of a poor frog~he obviously could not manage a whole one. however he is keeping the slug population down which my aloe vera is very happy about.
well, as swampy is otherwise engaged and cody asleep i will be taking the opportunity to burn some incense and meditate on my tree oracle.
bright blessings to you all
I gave myself two hours off from packing orders. Time for a walk across the fields. Out into the magic of a frozen morning. I love that sound of frozen lea...
