This Monday I am linking in with Kirsty at My Home Truths for I Must Confess except I am not confessing about the music I like - given I am very run of the mill and not the least bit out there when it comes to music.
Today I am confessing about what I did (or rather did not) get up to yesterday. I did nothing (because I don't think reading and sleeping count as 'doing' stuff) ...... just about. The. Whole. Day.
It was pouring with rain at about 5am, then again at about 6.30am and I think that I woke up, sort of, at about 7.30. I lay in bed, enjoying the peace and quiet and started to read. I think I must have dozed off because the next thing I knew, A was calling me as my folks had popped over to visit.
My Mom's leg is healing well and yesterday was her first outing since the operation.
We chatted for a while and then they left and A went to carry on with what he was doing - running cables to get power to the fridge on his back seat from the batteries in the back of the ute. I went back to bed and lay there reading for a while.
At about 11am A came through to get me as some friends had popped over to drop off an invitation to a baby shower at Palazzo Versace (geez - the last place I need to go to for a baby shower - what am I going to wear ????????????? If only I could pull off the look of an eccentric celebrity - but that ain't going to happen so I am going to have to either chop one leg off or buy something suitable to wear before the end of April)
After they left I went back to bed and read some more and then the next thing I knew it was 2.30pm and I had just woken up !!!! I went through to the garage where A was working on the car and he just smiled at me and said "Hullo Sleepy Head - have you joined the land of the living again ?" I said that I thought I may still be in the land of nod but I was slowly finding my way out !!!!
He said he had come through to ask me to come and give him a hand with some of the wiring but I was fast asleep so he just did something else but if I could help him that would be great. So I spent a couple of hours soldering and running wires with him.
I also took some time to sit and play with Alfie and Rosie and re-inforce the tricks I had taught Alfie and taught Rosie how to give high-5's - she was so funny !!!!!
It was K's turn to cook dinner to she did that when she got home from work and we ate and then watched some TV.
I don't know how long it has been since I have spent so much time doing not very much but I said to A that I felt like I really needed that. I said that part of the problem was doing it and not feeling guilty which is what generally happens with me.
I said that I may need a few weekends like this one because during the week I have been feeling like everything is just getting too much - which on one level is so silly because my life really is so much easier than others that I know who have more than one child, have little children, are single parents - whatever - but at the end of the day, it is my life and I need to worry about doing what is right for me without worrying about how it may upset someone whose circumstances are different.
I feel more able to tackle what this week has to offer apart from the rain which I wish would bugger off for now. I am totally grateful to the sun which came out on Saturday - I felt to much more energetic after seeing it and spending time outside (even though my body doesn't know how to metabolise vitamin D like it should !!!!)
Thanks again to the awesome Kirsty for hosting the linky today !! Come on over and share your confession for the week !!!!
Have a great week !
