I am sitting in the garden to escape hubby’s music… I am sorry we just don’t share the same taste!
Although it is beautifully quite out here the seats are very uncomfortable, wrought iron and very pretty but in no way comfy for my boney mishapen back.
Well there are positives I am in the shade and there seems to be a breeze and the view is not bad.
Ruby is hot tired and bored and is missing her afternoon walks which have all had to of been delayed until about 8pm when it is bearable to venture out into the fields. At the moment it is 25 degrees Celsius and isn’t going to drop to 23 derees Celsius until 10pm .
She is so bored that she has lined some of her beloved tennis balls up on the patio. When we go out for a walk she will spend five minutes deciding which ball she wants to carry over to the field to play with!
I have move upstairs now as the chair has set off my cyatic nerve, my own fault I should of got the seat cushions but that would of meant possibly waking hubby as I passed him ( he has spent the last week helping a friend of ours who needed some decorating done and so he is exhausted) yes he is asleep with his music blaring out of the sound bar.😉 So as he and Ruby are in zonk land I shall let sleeping dogs and men lie.
I am bored, like Ruby, it’s too hot to go out and too hot to stay in! I have done the early morning dog walk, washed the floors done the ironing, prepared lunch, which I couldn’t eat because I have no appetite.
I have rung my brother’s and sisters and got no answer. So here I am boring you!
Oh! I can hear Desperado by the Eagles…. that’s me today. Tired, hot and a little miserable and I don’t know why. I had better buck my ideas up as I am British, you know! Well I am English/ Irish born in London. I am splitting hairs now.
Well I had better stop now before you all start throwing rotten tomatoes and eggs at your screened! Why not tell me what your all up to on this Saturday afternoon!
Oh! I am that one person in England who does not like tennis so this is not a good fortnight for me .Hummmph! 😒😣😎

Female, wife, full time mother and Grandmother. I am not as happy go lucky as I used to be but I am still bubbling along on simmer! I have three handsome sons all grown and flown.The youngest married with a beautiful wife and two sons of his own. Eleven years ago I was working, running a home, driving and socializing then bang in a split second all that was gone. I had an accident at home. I broke my back, not for the first time, I had broken it 10 years previously as well. Unfortunately this time I had broken it really badly and it was truly messed up so I had to have two operations. I was told before each operation that the outcome could mean I spend the rest of my life in a wheelchair. Still as some guy once wrote "I am still standing " yes "better than I ever was " not quite but with the help of a walking stick and as long as I do not stand or sit in one position for too long, I am still standing! Update I no longer use the walking stick . I had lots of friends before the accident but when things like this happen, you loose most of them. Their lives move on and mine stood still and so they left me behind ...I know that is just the way life is but it hurt and always will. Then I looked around and saw those who were still there for me, these friends are the roses in my garden they need to be tended well. They are the diamonds in the dust, I will of been married 50yrs plus this year . Pain and boredom are my enemies now, I have to find different ways to approach life, use my pain befriend it almost...yer right , well that is what they tell me at the pain clinic ROFLMAO ...... if only I could! I have found an outlet for my fears, frustrations and night terrors . I have started writing poetry if that name can be applied to my writing. I hope I do not come over as a moaning winger. I hope I am past all that. I also hope that you might see how the poetry is moving from very dark through the grey and
hopefully in to light ??
I need to update this a little here. I have worked very hard over the years since my accident, I go to the gym regularly, I have a Pilates class and a core class once a week . The guys at the gym and my Pilates teacher cajoled, teased, bullied and encouraged me to abandon my walking stick! :) My back is no longer straight it is C shaped because of the injury and I have lost two and a half inches in height but my Pilates and Core teachers have helped me to stand up as straight and as strongly as possible. Pain and depression are still hanging on my arm but I have weapons to use against them and if I say so myself I cope well.
I have made lots of new friends, real diamonds. I am also very grateful for all the support and help I have encountered here on Wordpress. Hugs and welcome to everyone who visits.

I’m curious to know what music drives you out of the house 😉
Beatles, Bobby V, Elvis, it could be my mood but it’s not so much who it is as much as the songs coming up are all like dirges!
Bobby V might drive me out, I’d have to be in the right mood for Elvis, but i would stay for the Beatles! I was wondering if it were like Death Metal Godz or Gangsta Rap 😉
No nothing so aggressive I just wasn’t in the mood 🙄! I have very eclectic tastes but not today! I am on my over to you for coffee in a minute so make sure it’s ready as , as I said I am an irritable bunny today 💜
I have some nice, strong coffee waiting. I hope it isn’t too warm for it!
Never too hot for good coffee💜
Beautiful garden you have there… I’m jealous of anyone that can grow anything. Happy saturday
Thank you I am lucky 😉 just not a good day , have a good weekend 😎
I hate the heat and we’re in the middle of our summer. Hot isn’t going to leave anytime soon. The days we are out and about for doctor appointments and such are miserable, as far as I’m concerned. We puchased a cooling pad for Bailey. He seems to enjoy it, especially when he comes in from outside.
Our summer will not stay this hot for long, well it usually doesn’t so we shall see. It must be difficult getting Tom to from Dr and Hospital visits. I do hope you are both well. As for Bailey , I have seen those mats and we are thinking of getting Ruby one. 😉 Sending love 💜💗
Hope you managed to fight your way out of boredom sis!
I did Sis it’s all in the mind!! 💗😎💜
Hot weather combined with pain doesn’t suit us well. I can sympathize! Enjoyed the photos though and your sense of humor which always comes through. Take care, sleep well and hope you feel better tomorrow!
Hi Betty thank you for being so smypathtic the post was a tad self-indulgent! I am better but the cyatica I’d still there but I can cope 💜😱🎆
How are you keeping 💗
Oh you Brits make me laugh with your HOT temperatures!! Hope your weekend has improved 🌞 Stay cool.
I know we do make a fuss 😎😉💜
Hi there and thank you for the nomination, I am a no awards blog I used to accept awards but I have stopped. I am grateful for your thought. I shall acknowledge you and put an open nomination, I hope that is okay 😉💗💜
I find it hard to get settled in this hot weather. It was boiling today but we went to my sister’s for lunch and I fell asleep in the sun lounger. I woke up all crabby and groggy! Just cooling down a bit now! 🙂
Dangerous thing to do, did you get sun burnt? Sis are you okay 💗💜
I covered myself in cream and by then only had my milk white legs in the sun (they didn’t change colour at all)!! Mr Grump got burnt though !
Oh!so he is Mr extra Grump! I hope he is okay though! You were lucky Sis 💜💖
Yes, I was lucky. I offered to put cream on him but he said he didn’t need it. He is glowing today looking almost radioactive!!! I don’t think he will refuse cream again!!
Typical man, why are they so stubborn Sis it makes no sense 🤐💜
I know Sis, makes me cross! 👹👹👹👹
Me too Sis 💗💜☺️
