Yis. I am all tucked up in bed, warm and snug and today has been a good day.
My pain levels are still riding high, but much better than they were on Monday, so I have actually achieved a few things today 😀
I organised a bit more of my room, (Yep, still chipping away at that *sigh*).
I got 8 of my chenille ‘squares’ for my bedspread joined up. Instead of sewing them I have crocheted them together. It made more sense to me that way as I am using contrasting colours of the chenille yarn to join them. So this kind of contributes to the overall patchwork effect. I think so, anyway 😛
I went shopping 😀
Oh, I know that doesn’t sound like any kind of achievement, but it is!! Because I still have no car, for one thing. But my eldest’s other half took us to buy food and spend our gift cards from christmas. It was fun, even tho I used the electric scooter 😦 but needs must.
Although I had a chuckle at the new scooters. I went to put the arm down at the side, but these new ones don’t have them. Hmmm, I think, that’s not terribly safe. But instead – the seats are grippy!! You go to slide to one side, and you can’t!! It took a bit of getting used to. Very strange. LOL
And the day was rounded off nicely by watching A Knight’s Tale with the lovely Heath Ledger.
More home improvements have been planned too. And at this rate, it’ll be 2016 before I can afford a car again. But, that’s how the cookie crumbles sometimes.
Me and Rory had an amazing interaction earlier. I was loudly cursing my pain as I slowly got ready for bed, and suddenly there she was next to me on my bed. She put her paw out and patted me a couple of times and so I looked at her, straight into her big beautiful golden eyes. She had a really serious expression as she looked directly back at me and reached out to me again with her paw. It was just as if she was telling me ” its ok, mum, I’m here”.
Part of how amazing it was, was that she didn’t blink or narrow her eyes at all. It was more like another human would lock eyes with you for emphasis, you know?
She got lots of head scratchings and then we played with an odd piece of yarn that I’d missed when tidying up.
I does love my Rory very much and tonight I really *knew* that she loves me too.
So, a much, much better day 😀
Me sleepy now. Night night xx
