you make me smile. Yes, ready (well almost) for Christmas..., I had a rummage in the cupboards at the barn for some tinsel and a few baubles to add to the tree. I've been looking at it this evening thinking something is missing, I think it's coloured lights, I may have to get a few just to round it off.
I've had an OK day but I'm very sore today, to be expected after 2 days at the shops. I couldn't stand in the kitchen to prepare supper and had to resort to codeine to keep going. I've been doing quite well without them so it's OK. I made some parsnip soup, I was certain Poppy would like it, being sweet, but she said it was too parsnipy! I'll have to add more carrots, unless I make carrot soup and slip a bit of parsnip in- there's loads left. She is very naughty about veg.
Anyway, I'm feeling level and uncrazy, I was thinking how nice it is to feel this way, no tension, little stress, almost normal! I took the dogs in the field to tend the ponies, D was just going out in the van to get some milk. The dogs said hello but weren't particularly interested in him, he didn't say the house is ready for them to come back. I know he has stayed out over night a couple of times, maybe he's glad not to have the responsibility of them. It will be very hard to let them go again, although they are more work here than they are at the barn bc the garden isn't escape proof and I need to be careful to keep the clean (tall order around here!) AND they don't let me lie in!
He told me, as I went through the gate, that he'd been making progress with clearing some of the rubbish that he'd accumulated by the gate. He said he's been putting bits in the bin every week (when really it should be taken to the tip bc it's builder's rubbish). I wonder why he's suddenly doing this after all the years of my asking for it to be cleared. I wonder if he has some tricks up his sleeve. I'm really keen to know if he had his meeting with his solicitor, I guess I'll hear this week from Mark, I'm sure he's got it in mind to get on with things now since I have a deadline for leaving the cottage.
With Alexis tomorrow, and pilates. Oh, and maybe a quick trip into town with Poppy's braces; Lola found them on the lounge coffee table when Poppy had gone to the bathroom (the dogs weren't around when she put them there- she has to take them out to eat- she should put them in their box but doesn't), and the wires have been bent somewhat, and of course she can't wear them as they are.
Oh, late again, time for zeds. I did OK without my Mirtazapine on Friday til about 7pm then started to feel peculiar. I took that night's dose then, but wished I hadn't. I haven't taken it before I go to bed before, and I won't again. Sometimes it makes me feel strange while I'm trying to get to sleep, but I guess I'm OK again by morning.
Goodnight Kate, I hope you are completely unsnuffled by now :)
