What a wet weekend we have just had! It saw our entire household housebound yesterday as we received a beautiful and much needed 95ml rain!
So much rain in fact that it interfered with our digital TV reception!! As a result everyone was forced to have a restful, TV free day.
This worked well for most as they got cosy by the fire or slipped under the doona and read, rested and slept.
I was beyond jealous!
Comfort and/or sleep is not coming easily at the moment and when I successfully find either.. they are short lived!! There is no prejudice.. the same issue is experienced day or night! Once I’m comfortable enough to go off to sleep – I wake – and that’s pretty much how I roll.
As everyone snoozed I managed to drown my resentment with 3 cups of tea, a coffee and kicking off the first season of Outlander on DVD . I think I may become addicted!! Hooray.. something I can do in bed at all hours!
This lack of sleep, the tossing and turning and moments spent with a numb bum are making me a little grumpy. It is a fact.. I don’t think anyone likes hanging with me so much at the minute!
Yesterday afternoon, while giving me a cuddle after I’d snapped about something insignificant, Lilli said, “Oh god mum why are you so grumpy?”
Oh I don’t know.. maybe because this is all “f@cking f@cked!” It is all so absurdly frustrating we looked at each other and just burst out laughing!
To think I was worried before the surgery about being ‘Fat Bastard’ when really I should’ve been worried about turning into a ‘Grumpy Old Lady’ 😳!
So after the kids left for school this morning I decided that I needed some fresh air and a new perspective – outside!
The sun was shining and a beautiful fresh breeze ran along our verandah, so I decided it would be lovely to lie back in the hammock and smell the fresh air!
I lasted an awkward 5 minutes,
I am not sure it helped..
