It’s been a hard few months. A long winter and health problems since last October have made it extra challenging. Husband hurt his back working on daughter’s renovation project. He went from doing pretty much everything around the house to nothing. A huge shock for me! I had to get stuck in, despite my back problems and do all the dog walks in rain, fog and snow, the cooking and work too. Bringing the wood in was the particularly tough. Believe me there is no romance in lugging wood however warm and inviting wood burners look in homes magazines, the reality is a bit different.
Two bouts of very debilitating flu since New Year has not been fun either. It felt like Groundhog Day. I just had to focus on getting through each grey day.
And all the time coping with a daughter with severe epilepsy. So yes I have felt sorry for myself, probably been moaning too much and been seriously questioning how we can manage living here as we get older.
Today Husband is on the mend, our hacking coughs are gradually going and the sun has come out for the whole day! Instantly life seems brighter.
