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 ? 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.
Our host Linda at #WDIIA called her post, today and it really took my heart she said :”Endurance. I think it should be the word of the year, not just the day.”
I totally agree and right now all we can do is endure. I think the best way we can do this is to find humour in the situation.
Yes another early start sorted Ruby had a coffee and checked my emails, and read some posts. Hubby up by 8.30, breakfast then time to exercise Ruby.
On the way back we had to stop to get the remainder of our middle son’s prescription. We had tried to pick it up for him on Friday but they did not have one of the items so we had to return. I waited in the car with Ruby while hubby queued up, as with all queued now each person separated my ten metres. It took an hour and there was great confusion caused by the staff about our sons prepaid certificate. They told hubby he had to pay, he told them he did not as our son had a prepaid certificate,they said it was out of date, not politely but very loud and aggressively infront of the whole queue. Luckily hubby had the email from when it was paid and all details on his phone. Eventually he had the medication almost thrown at him. I must add here that we totally understand that the staff are working under scary and stressful conditions but there was no need to treat hubby like a criminal shouting at him and not even apologize when he showed them it was them and not him or our lad at fault! Luckily they are not our regular chemist’s. I was very proud hubby kept his cool and was polite.
By the time we got home hubby was upset and tired. A neighbour rang to ask him something so I gave him a cuppa and let him relax. After lunch he did some gardening, Ruby spent the whole afternoon with him, she is such a daddy’s girl.
I did my daily exercise video then had a shower and washed my hair. Then it was to get the dinner, shepherds pie and cabbage and beans. Hubby rang his mum. We heard from the boys and both my sisters so we know they are okay. In the news our prime minister Boris who went into hospital last night is now in intensive care. Let’s add him to our prayers. That’s about it for now, we need a happy song.
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.
