Here's another bloggy woggy update! I've some what cheated as i've written this over 3 nights! I usually do it all in one go. A good job though - as whilst not as bad as last time - I am feeling somewhat ropey from having my 2nd covid vaccine today! Just mostly body aches and head feeling light headed and off - a bit of a headache but tbh it's mild over all. Took some cocodamol initially as my back was hurting so bad and I thought it was the sciatica mucking around. But once the pain spread around my body I realised it most likely wasn't that! Still i've had a good tea and a jam donut hubby got me from Waitrose so all is good with the world all in all!! Now onto last weekends action:
Saturday 8th May:
Well today was a blurgh day! I am well and truly into Sophie's cold. I wake up sneezing 1000 times and nose running like a tap. My head is pounding and I feel like to death so reach for the beechams capsules.
I give them an hour or so and then drag myself up to get my summer clothes out and put my winter ones away. I don't get on with my mother in law - like so many wives don't lol - so this is my way of keeping myself to myself and avoiding conflict. Call it self preservation for my mental health! When we got back from MIL's house at Easter I moved my case to Jessica's room in a "I need to do this job later" fashion. However I am now forced to do it! A) for the above reasons and B) Because I need to move my case back to my room so I can sleep in J's room - and there is no room long term for it to be a job "sitting in waiting"! By the time i'm done it's time for a lemsip and a sit with facebook. I'm not even sure drugs are touching this I feel so rough but I chuck them down any way! Sophie comes to sit with me and wants to do some knitting. She doesn't know how to knit and soon get's frustrated!
After this I check on my seedlings I put in a few weeks back (or was it last week?!) I forget now! Any way this is where we are at ...
So it looks like we have a couple of Tomatoes popping up, Sweetcorn, all 3 Cucumbers (I only want one!), Beetroot, Lettuce and Brocalli (in all my years gardening I am yet to get one survive!!)
In the evening I write to the blog :-)
Sunday 9th May:
Well today is hubbys birthday. I slept in the big bed better than I thought I would for being poorly! Got up to hear hubby being forced to open presents in Jessica's room so thought I better relocate.

Time for another update. I'm almost caught up - Yippee! ...
Monday 3rd May:
Today is bank holiday! Yippee! No need to get up! Unfortunately the weather is pants so we end up spending the day indoors doing nothing but playing computer games! Sophie is absolutely full of cold so it's a good job today is not a school day! However this did not deter her from the following ... Sophie ... who wanted to catch a Pigeon for Jessica. They are apparently her favourite animal so Sophie set up a little system. She had string from the dining room all the way up the garden. This was tied to a plastic box which was wedged above a plate of bird food. The plan was to yank the box down on the bird when it came under the box. She got bored of holding the string indoors in the end and that was the end of that LOL! Good idea though!!
