Day off... sort of.. well almost.. Not it's not an April Fool

I got up had a glass of warm water and lemon juice, a cup of red bush, took the before meal tabs, Omeprazole, Boron, and Serra Enzyme, did my daughter's sarnies (only because I need a favour - I'm not daft! Well I am mostly but not today)prepared me brekkie and went back to bed!!! Ta dah.

Haven't given the chickies a single thought.

Up again, made a coffee, have a bowl of nuts (brazils, walnuts, and almonds) for snackie poos and hope to get back to my book shortly before lunch. Ahhhhh...

New Year in the farming calendar for us. Finished calving, almost finished lambing, and the last of last years hogs went at 6 a.m. this morning. So turn over a new leaf for me too.

The only fly in the ointment is,... you might guess.... having RA. But then if I didn't I wouldn't be having a day off. See what you have to do to get some time off around here? :-)

Mild stiffness this morning, definite pains in my wrist (left) and knee (right) and bottom of my right foot (the feeling like you have something in your shoe)

We are selling the last of our haylage to a chappie who sells it on to posh people in London and Home Counties who have horses, before this years grass starts to grow and needs cutting. Everything is looking so much greener with this bit of rain we are having, so off we go again..

Feeling a lot more clearer headed today and I do wonder whether in my blogs I have sounded a bit "off the wall", contradictory" or arguing with myself (is that the same as contradictory - nit), but that's how the last few months have felt since my diagnosis. If so, I apologise to anybody who has said "Eh.... what she on about". Thank you all for being there.

Happy Ill Day x Even though

you don't look it...corblimey x

Hi Tricia.

Yep nutty as a fruit cake... not many hares around here though.

That is my daughters puddy tat, Misty, she is an absolute darling, and has won over everyone, even those who don't like cats! When she is really relaxing she puts her front legs up behind her head, so funny, will try and find a photo. Hope you are recovering after Thursday's adventure. Take care Julie x
