A bit poorly.

I have'nt been around here much as I have been a bit poorly. I have had an operation and am recovering slowly and surely, I just was'nt prepared for how much pain I would be in. The doctors orders are for complete and utter rest and to be honest I am not going to argue with them so lots of sleeping and reading are in order I think. Any good book recommendations would be very welcome :)
I am hoping to do a little reading with Charlie too and am sure we can do some crafting in bed when I'm up to it. Well I'm making the most of Warren being at home until Monday as then he goes to work away for a few days in Scotland, after then I'm pretty much on my own until after 4'oclock each day when my eldest daughter Kirsty is going to come over after work and help out.

It's funny really as being told to stay in bed and rest seems like a dream when you are up and running around every day but in reality it's quite frustrating, as I can here normal life going on downstairs and...ok, breathe...the TV is on Again..grrr! I am really going to have to learn to switch off for the next couple of days.
Right enough for now, I'm shattered from just typing this. Rest, bed and books it is then.

Sending lots of get well soon prayers your way, try and enjoy the rest if you can. I think it would drive me bonkers so can commiserate there though :(
Thinking of you lovely lady.

Prayers and a cyber hug for you. Do you have any friends that can help keep Charlie entertained for part of the day until your daughter gets in around four? Even if it is only for an hour to run around in the park and let of steam?

Thinking of you

Oh my darling, breathe, and I'm praying for your quick recovery. (hugs)

The Shining Girls and The Last Runaway are (very very different) but excellent books I've read this past week. The Shining Girls is about a time travelling serial killer, and more importantly the strong feisty survivor who fights back. The Last Runaway is about a young Quaker girl who leaves her sheltered life in England and starts a new life in America, weaving in stories about quilt making and community, and most of all slavery and freedom.
