I've had a good couple of days. The weekend was quiet, with hubby and littlun away camping, and biggun off spending 'quality time' with boyfriend. I indulged in the Sunday papers, watched lots of films, and didn't see a bloody soul! The phone didn't ring from Friday afternoon until Sunday night when hubby came home. Not even a text message! Nobody loves me - Boo Hoo!!!!

Gets a bit lonely at times - this being ill-long-term business!

Today was great though. First thing in the morning mum met me at my house and then we went to the stables for a joint riding lesson with littlun. She was a bit scared but kept it under control well, only squealing twice in 45 mins! I had great fun, and it was just so nice to do something with the children (well one of them at least - biggun's too in love to go riding!).

Mother & Daughter moments!

After riding was well enough to go visit a friend, and then she came back to my house and we sat in the garden in glorious sunshine. Bramble had his first innoculations on Friday, so we had him in the garden in the run with the rabbit and guinea pig. I think he loves 'outside' despite the fact that he's nervous and twitchy, running into the house if a plane goes over or someone starts up their lawn mower! Cute.

Health wise, things tick a long as ever. Aches and pains spring up here and there, but on the whole it's steady improvement all the way. I even did the front garden (pruning bushes back and weeding out 8 months worth of nettles! Might even have a day where I get to feel 'normal' soon, or is that too much to ask?!

Not too much to ask at all. Steady improvement is the way to go. So glad things are on the up.

Awww she looks so cute on the horse!!! Did she enjoy it/want to do it again?
I spent the weekend in a daze of confusion ..a combination of it being too hot for me (not for you I know), hayfever getting the better of me and the hayfever meds just wiping me out..yuck!
Oh, also the oven died so we have had to order a new one....lots of money lighter now! Ooops!!!
Just done a couple of day shifts and start nights tonight...yuck again! Mind you at least it'll be cooler on the nights, been cooked like a chicken on days!

Absolutely not; not too much to ask at all.

How lovely to go riding with one of the children - she looks relaxed.

zinnia - thanks hun x

chilli - she loved it, but you know what she's like... she said, "It's not something I want to do every day, but once or twice or a month would be good!" (This is an 8 year old!!!) Our oven just died too - must be the weather!

jj - it was great to share the horsey thing with one of them at least! My dream would be for us all to go on a week's trail riding but it ain't gonna happen!
