I am thinking… about how cruel life can be
I am thankful… that my Mum made our tea tonight. Thank you Mum, I don’t know what I’d do without you xx
In the kitchen… is a bloody annoying light that is blinking on and off. It seems to respond when we talk to it. Not sure if that’s us hallucinating or we have a really clever light
I am wearing… hoodie, tracksuit pants and a black t-shirt. Catching up with Strictly calls for sports gear even though I am a million miles away from doing any exercise right this minute!
I am creating… still working on some baby blankets that have been ordered by a lady at church and oodles and oodles of notes and story/character/plot ideas for my creative course
I am going… to bed soon. It has been a horrible day and tomorrow is looking as equally difficult
I am wondering… what tomorrow will bring
I am reading… “The Detective’s Daughter” by Leslie Thomson
I am hoping… my mother-in-law is not distressed and is peaceful tonight
I am praying for… to be honest, I don’t know what to pray for tonight. My mother-in-law is in the advanced stages of Parkinson’s Disease and has been taken to hospital again today. She is facing an operation tomorrow but we are worried she might not withstand the anaesthetic, and if she does survive it her quality of life is so poor it seems wrong to pray for recovery. It is very difficult for all of the family so I suppose my prayers would be that we all stay strong and can face the next couple of days together.
I am looking forward to… in the current circumstances it feels wrong to be looking forward to anything very much, but I am looking forward to handing over these blankets to my friend. The babies are not due for another couple of months but I want them to be with the parents soon nevertheless!
I am learning… that statistics and case studies mean nothing when it’s a member of your own family suffering with a cruel disease
Around the house… meh…..stuff, more stuff, bits of stuff, messy stuff….
I am pondering… selling a kidney so we can afford a cleaner
A favourite quote for today: “You can’t rewind a sunset” (said by me this evening)
One of my favourite things… is my Mum’s shepherd pie
A few plans for the rest of the week: apart from Stay and Play in the morning, this week is going to be pretty much a minute by minute, hour by hour “see how it goes” kind of week
A peek into my day… we went for a drive this evening to have a bit of clear air and just to change the atmosphere. As you can see we chose a beautiful time of day to go out!
