What Day is it Anyway? Monday, March 23rd, 2020 #WDIIA.

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.

This is part of LindaGHill’s #WDIIA.

It is 17.08 and it been a beautiful day weather wise, the sun is shining. So we were up at the usual and had breakfast, and let Ruby out. My sister in law rang and we had a chat, then we took Ruby for her walk at our deserted place, we only saw one person but I am getting nervous and eventhough we took her twice today, I am thinking we may have to stop walking her out side and just use the garden .. we shall see.

So we got home and Hubby was on the phone to the lads helping them make decisions, about, work, health issues and life in general. I went upstairs and cleaned the bathroom and bedrooms within an inch of their lives.! Then I washed my hair, the hair I cut the other day!

Hubby then went out to the garden and pruned and tidied up, I have to say it does look lovely.

We had a delivery from Amazon, new scales. They are so nice, very chic.

Day three of the stew we had dumplings too.

Above tonights dinner, day three of the beef stew and dumplings and it was yummy.

This video brought me to tears, it has a strong message so whichever country you are in it is relevant to us all.

So it’s been a really good day. Time for some happy music . Now we cannot hold hands but we will be able to again …I hope and pray. Not today but one day.

Be safe out there.

Song Lyric Sunday: Tiny Human

Imogen Heap – Tiny Human

I love Immie  I am sure  you have all grasped  that. She  kept  me sane  when I  was in hospital after breaking  my  back, three operations, learning  to walk, cope  with pain and without being too dramatic  learning  to accept my  limits  and live.

Well here is  truly  beautiful  song  she  has  written  about   birth  and motherhood  since  the  birth of  her  beautiful baby  girl Scout.  Every mother and father  will recognize  the words, emotions  and  feelings expressed  so beautifully  in the song . The video  reduces me to tears  each time I watch………. tissues please.

 

Oh my tiny human
At 05:08 you break me apart again
The space-time continuum
Buckles and bends around your every twist and turn

I can barely remember life before
You came crashing in on one day
Crazy beautiful you
Blind me like the dawn
After ashes fell on Pompeii
Crazy beautiful you

A miracle, a mystery
And one short stop away
From joy to misery
When the night becomes day
I give you my every last ounce
You make a pin-cushion out of me
And you can thank me later, babe (if I’m alive)
How long can one live without sleep?

Still I can’t stand to imagine
Life without….
You came crashing in on one day
Crazy beautiful you
Blind me like the dawn
After ashes fell on Pompeii
Crazy bright beautiful you

Suddenly propelled
So many light years from bliss
And completely unprepared
How can anyone deserve this?
I’ve tried, I’ve tried all the tricks in the book, I’m at my wits end
Now look here what do you want from me!?

I can barely remember life before…
You came crashing in on one day
Crazy beautiful you
From the ashes of Pompeii
To fireworks and champagne
Crazy beautiful you

You little devil, you
Oh I love you so much
It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done
But you’re so worth it
Yes you are
Yes you are
You little devil, you

Dance Deborah Dance.

For Deborah

Dance in the sunlight  dance  by the moon

Dance till you are dizzy. Spin till you swoon!

Dance up the hills and skip down the dales

Dance across the water  like a ship with full sails

 

Dance if you can and dance if you will

Dance in the restaurant  till the waiter brings the bill

Dance if  you can dance if you can’t

Dance Dance Dance Dance make it your chant!

 

Dance if  your  body lets you and when it will not

Dance in your  head it easy, easy so give it a shot.

Dance to your  health and to mine

Dance Dance forget the bad for a while and let the good shine!

 

Down the Ladder!

It suddenly hit me as I reached up and put the clean nappies into the airing cupboard!! OH! my God! What on earth is happening, how am I  ever going to cope. Whatever  was I thinking, that it was all going to be plain sailing??

My eldest was ten and the next lad was eight, I had survived traumas of the pediatric special care units, bringing home new babies that had been wired up and tube fed. Babies that refused to take a bottle or sleep one of which could and would cry and scream for hours!! Got through ear, nose and eye infections, sun burn, sickness, sleepless night endless lonely days with no one to talk to. A bout of measles, not to mention mumps, chicken pox ect . Been though the day nursery blues and finally they were settled into school and were acting like humans… well almost.

What had I done. I had thrown the dice and I had hit a ladder which I had slid right down. So two weeks after proudly and confidentially( well I had done this all before and twice)  bringing home a new baby . I realized  I had it all to do again but now it going to be more complicated! Feed wash and dress baby after an early hours night feed. Get boys up make sure they eat their breakfast and wash, have all their homework and kits and lunch boxes then put baby in pram and walk the boys to school.  After that walk up town and do the shopping, get home feed the baby  do as much housework and cooking as time and baby will allow, get baby out of cot or swing chair put in the pram.  Dash up to school, either walk boys to a friends or an after school activity  go home feed baby , get the boys ( with baby of course)  feed them make sure they do their homework before the TV can go on! Bath, feed and put baby’s night wear on, put him to bed sort out meal for husband if he was coming home , he was away or often very late  due to his  line of work.  Collapse, and that was only on  a good day when everything worked to plan.

I sat by the airing cupboard  and wept!…………..
