The sun had its hat on all day just wonderful! Feeeeling very happy and satisfied with myself !

Thought it was going to be just another nothingy day,hadnt slept at all.Sat in bed took meds and puffers and debated do i continue to try and sleep or get up.It was 9 if I did nod off it would be 3 before I got up.On the other hand if I got up Im likely to have the coughs all day because of no sleep! Decision made get up Jane so I did.Started my coffee and yuk tasted like tea which I used to love but no longer dont know why ,how strange thought i was going dolally so made another nah no likey.Ok on to juice tasted as it should good,tastebuds must be up the wall?Then I opened my curtains and whoosh rays of blinding sunlight shot through wow! Then I had a little chuckle to myself remembering lots of you on here saying about the vit D from the sun and wondered if there were loads of us thinking "catch those rays today" so I parked my chair by the open doors sunglasses on and soaked up the warming rays of sun ,eyes closed so as not to look at fallen fences and the newly laid felt which was peeling off like a banana ! :( mmm I couldve been sitting on a balcony listening to the waves lapping the shore line very nice indeed,then Bailey had a flea up his bum and was tugging my jimjams daring me to get him and play he leapt about like a spring lamb funny little thing he is,sniffing around at the back of the garden another dog barked! Bailey jumped out of his skin,so brave, not, started to scream and at the speed of light flew into the house screeching all the way you'd have thought he was being attacked,he was so scared he had somehow dislodged the base boards under kitchen units and was hiding underneath bless him.I wonder what that was about no idea bless him.

After that swept and washed floors put washing on changed Bailey's bed washed it all and Fudge his lovey bear.did all the kitchen.,cleaned the bathroom which is downstairs,then cooked roast beef mmm very yum it was to.Getting all workeyfied very unlike me especially on no sleep.Was going to go out on gertie but I was working my little fingers to the bone :p A very satisfying day ive achieved lots and the sun shone throughout the day allowing all doors and windows open.

Just an ordinary day but one I just happened to enjoy more than others.Hope you have all enjoyed this sunny sunday?

A smile a day helps us work rest and play. :) Janexx

  • Aw you had a perfectly lovely day :) What or who is Gertie? And what kind of dogie is Bailey?

    It was a beautiful sunny day here too....I replenished the bird feeders and cooked a roast dinner for myself and child No. 2.....but said child has been everso sweet and shared her heavy cold with me so spent the remainder of the day snuffling and watching the Bobsled on TV.

  • Gertie is my scooter which has opened up my life good to feel independent again.Bailey is a king charles cavalier he is 4 1/2 mths and so naughty and gorgeous with it.I like my roast on a sunday.That was nice of your daughter how generous of her :p hope it stays as a cold only.Yes I wont be long before I wind my way up those stairs ,shouldnt take a lot of rocking tonight. :) Janexx

  • What a lovely lively post to read, L.L. I enjoyed every minute of your day. Me, not much to report, apart from enjoying the sunshine, and feeling better. More energy to get on with the forthcoming move. Swings and roundabouts with this forthcoming move. Remember a youngish mum pushing a child in a pushchair and an older little girl into a brand new house. Now, with 4 grandchildren and pages of meds. Heigh Ho! Lifexxx

  • Thanks pergola it was just a nice day the sun made the difference makes you feel alive again,in amongst this nasty weather we have.Glad your feeling better take it easy though.I think your to be admired pergola a massive thing to be doing especially given both of your illnesses running along side.

    It must feel very,strange,scary to be changing your address after so long,but also exciting and lots to look forward to.You take your memories along with you where ever you may travel they are ingrained in our old grey matter forever.Have you booked a separate van for meds only :D Life is just grand pergola,hopefully when you have un packed in your new home take a very very large portion of TLC the pair of and just sit back and take it all in and breathe haha..Keepwell now :) Janexx

  • Wow longlungs, what a lot you got done today !!! I felt exactly the same this morning. Radio on, door flung open and sticking into a bit of cleaning. There's nothing like the sun to lift the spirits. I so needed to see/feel it. What a pity we can't bottle it .

Our church has at last been refurbished. new wiring, new LED lights so we and vicar can read hymns and listen to his sermon. to celebrate this sunshine and our newly refurbished church ( erected the first time in 1296), we went to our church centre for a good celebration meal and some fellowship together.
