What Day is it Anyway? Thursday, March 26th, 2020

Why is Linda hosting this post.

She said.”Because if you’re like me and stuck at home already, or if you’re going to be like me soon, the days of the week are going to be hell to keep track of. We have a wonderful community here on WordPress, and I’m sure many people are feeling nervous and/or isolated. I want to make sure every one of us has somewhere to congregate and someone to talk to.

Why am I writing this post ? Because it’s day Seven since we have been told by Bossa to stay home and socially distance ourselves. We are all in different circumstances and yet we are all in the same boat.

As ever the day started the same, early, cramp, sickness…let Ruby out, feed her! Feed hubby, we took our walk with Ruby. Yes if I am going to lose track of the days it will be the mornings.

Today I took some photos of the old tree trunks that the gardener’s at the wood have carved! A butterfly, a squirrel and a very aggrieved looking rabbit.

See what I mean about the rabbit ?W we got home I cleaned the downstairs toilet and the bathroom. Then I did the the rest of the house. I rang two friends who are on their own. They are both fine and sound cheerful so that’s good. Rang one sister spoke to other via wordpress so they are both good.

By eleven o’clock the sickness had passed so I had some breakfast. I did the washing and hung it out. Hubby decided to brave the shops, got most of my list but no flour which is a shame as I wanted to bake but hay ho small worries in this situation. Fed Hubby ,we had quiet afternoon but busy . I am going to cook a feta cheese and spinach cannelloni which was lurking in the depths of the freezer, which is good as it made room for the shepherds pies we cooked Tuesday. We are doing well with cooking because we like to cook from fresh. I have put up a photo of the cannelloni defrosted before cooking. We spoke to all the boys again this afternoon and our youngest and his two boys videoed us again it was lovely to see them all.

It was tasty, anyway all eaten and cleared away now. Just having a glass of wine before it’s time to go to the door and clap for the NHS.

Be safe all of you

Be very safe.

    I like your morning routines. Yep, that rabbit is special but the others look great. Hope your sickness doesn’t come back, Willow.

        You are having this every morning? That’s weird! I am sure you have tried out a lot already. What is the diagnosis if I may ask?

        It is to do with where I broke my back the second time. My spine is out of alignment and is not always sure where my head/ brain is or vissaversa either way it takes a while for me to feel normal in the mornings. 😀 I cope 💜💜

        May I ask what you tried so far (you know I just want to find out if I could give you a tip, I am into healing plants, you know). But you can also say that I shall zip it… lol. I simply don’t want you to suffer from that. Most of all if there is a possibility to calm the symptoms.

        I used to take Cyclizine and Omaprozale but I was on tramadol and Gabapentin as well for pain. But I decided no more pills and I managed to get off of them all. Now I take nothing. I try to use mindfulness and will power 💜

        That is already the best pre-condition. Congratulations that you left the medication behind. Can there be done something regarding physiotherapy? That in combination with external embrocation and internal essence remedies (regarding the nerves, the sickness, the pain, the regeneration) could really do the trick.
        Sorry, I stop it here. I don’t want to bother you, just want you to feel good 💖
