Well it is Saturday morning here and it is still raining!!!
In fact it hadn't stopped since yesterday - I see another day of snuggling under the blankets with my lovely family and watching dvds and playing board games ahead!!!
Yesterday I had Miss A home with me - it was the 2nd day of sports at her school and she hadn't been feeling too great .
She wasn't in anything that day so a day at home seemed the best!
We relaxed together and watched a movie in my bed on my trusty laptop - lovely girlie time - she said we should do this at least once a month hehe!!
Before long it was time to pick up Miss C - I am trying to do the pickups on days I can manage just to try and bring back a bit of normality !! Whats that ? I have forgotten !!!
Anyway poor C had been injured during the day by a rogue soccer ball - my heart goes out to her as school is a bit of a struggle at the moment!!
On the way home we stopped at the village to get a dvd and collect something from the post - office.
Thought it might cheer c up!
We picked up some hot chips from the cafe next to the dvd shop - when we were paying Miss C asked the lady behind the counter. 'Excuse me How do you have good days?"
At first the lady looked a bit taken aback and then on looking at me standing in scarf and cap broke into a big smile and said ' I just keep smiling and it helps me lots.'
Oh my heart - how i wish I could take all the worry away for the girls!
We headed home laden with hot chips, dvds and lollys! The scene was set for a lovely afternoon. The movie proved a great hit and there was lots of laughter all the way through.
I had been feeling pretty good through the day but had noticed a bit of redness appearing on my palms.
I know this can happen so thought I should just watch it.
A meal was being provided for us that night. The lovely friend who was bringing it had had a baby only 2 months ago and here she was driving up to us to bring us dinner. What an amazingly generous heart!
It was dark already when she arrived - a delicious soup and homemade savoury muffins was the order of the day.
We shared a cuppa and I had a lovely cuddle with her gorgeous baby and she headed back home!
The redness in my hands had progressed and was quite painful and itchy.
I had also come out in itchy welt type lumps on the back of my legs.
The weeedkiller was on a roll!!
Within an hour I was feeling quite peculiar - tingling around my mouth , increased pain in my hands etc.
I had some antihistamine tablets so I took one in the hope that it would do something.
I ended up back in bed - battling the symptoms and the most painful indigestion.
The gift that keeps on giving!!!
Well thankfully I slept pretty well until this morning - I woke dreaming I was trying to climb out of a torrent of water. Thats what happens when you hear the sound of heavy rain all night!!
My hands are still sore and itchy so B may have to get some calamine from the chemist today.
I wonder what other delights will present themselves today on this mystery tour!!!! Hmm we shall just have to wait and see........................
