A Day in the Life...

of us - a very ordinary family!! Todays blog post is really just about a day in my life at the moment - a not very exciting day, as life just seems to be like that at the moment! After a fitful sleep, again, gosh I do wish the night sweats would disappear quicker, got up, got washed and dressed - which is no mean feat at the moment as I need crutches to get around and I'm not supposed to get my foot wet!! I never realised just how much I relied on my daily shower in the morning to wake me up, I could stand under a hot shower for simply ages!


By this time I need a rest, so its back to lying on the bed, which is really a good excuse to finish reading Eclipse by Stephanie Meyer. Having heard so many people raving about the Twilight books I though I had better go check them out. Now I can see why they were raving. I don't normally read vampire books but these are so very different and definately page turners. I have now ordered the last one, Breaking Dawn, from Amazon, so that I have something to read next week.


After lunch my kind husband took pity on myself and eldest son, who is recuperating from his surgery, and took us to the local garden centre for tea and scone - a welcome change! On the way we saw a gorgeous rainbow - did I have my camera? - of course not!! silly me!! It was a lovely reminder to me that despite hard times God is always with me and after the rain comes a rainbow!!


In the evening we watched some more of the first series of 24. We watched this several years ago and have seen them all, but John has just been introduced to the series and is loving them. We got him the box set of the first four series for coming out of hospital (OK - yes it was also so that we could watch them again too!).


I also started knitting a cardigan for myself with some Jaeger Natural Fleece wool, it knits up really quickly as it is knitted on large pins.


Maybe my day was not so boring after all!

You'll love Breaking Dawn - I thought it was even better than the first three books :)

I'm with you on the shower thing. I had a foot op a few years ago and not being able to get it wet drove me nuts. Great excuse to relax with a book or three though...
