My day yesterday was nothing like the planned one, in fact it really did not happen at all.
I woke at around 6:00 with a stonking headache, a cup of tea and a walk with Ben seemed to make it worse. So more tea and 2 Parrotseatemall and an hours lie down ...................No good, nothing, still had a blacksmith pounding on an anvil behind my eyes.
I had to wait 2 hours before I could take one of my strong painkillers and then within 15 minutes it was sweet oblivion.
I woke late afternoon, feeling groggy but no pain, and saw that it had been raining. Ben was curled up beside me, also feeling no pain, in fact he seemed to be in 7th heaven.
We hauled ourselves off the bed, I had a run through the shower while Ben had an amble through the garden. A cuppa and a walk, dinner for Ben and a dish of rice salad from yesterday for me. I livened it up with some chopped up cold sausage and some chilli sauce.
More tea and another walk and we settled down on the sofa for some mindless telly. Then off to bed where I slept like a bump on a log. 24 hours gone, nothing to show for it, nothing achieved and I am not going to angst about it at all. I was very busy all week, it was very sunny for most of it and my body sent me a message that I listened to.
Today I feel great, Ben is still on the bed, pretending to be asleep, and all is well with my world.
The garden looks freshly washed and polished in the sunshine. I am going to look for a workbench, the old one was not worth bringing from Tydd, as it will be needed for the wood work planned for the back garden. Raised beds, a bench, some fencing etc etc.
The rain has made the new plants look very perky and of course I am impatient to see the beds filled with roses. I will just have to suck it up, they are coming as bare root plants in the autumn, along with the perennials. Not forgetting the free bulbs, all 300 odd of them.
That's all for today, I am off to shower and then winkle Ben out for a walk.
Just a note to say that while enjoying my breakfast I had the telly on BBC One Wales. They showed the marvelous Tom Daley winning his place in Rio, then the idiot commentator said " Try this at home on your sofa" Did he not realise that at 8:45 young children would probably be watching with parents. I could just see Junior leaping on to the sofa to try it out. I went straight on to the BBC Complaints site and sent my grievance off, I asked for a reply
which can take up to 15 days, I will be sharing it here.
What do you think, was it irresponsible or am I over reacting?
