Be Grateful

Through the fabulous Cazzie, I was recently directed to Ella's Child, a blog written by a fabulous strong woman and it inspects every part of her soul. Written with a frankness that is rare, this woman has shown me how to be a selfless partner to my man. I often think of her and if anyone has a minute or two to spare, go and read her and if only a couple of seconds then read this post. She has just recently lost her beloved husband of around 35 years.

I am in a melancholy sort of mood today. I was up early and went to Christchurch to take Peta to the hospital for her final appointment at the eye outpatients. She has been discharged from their service and now just has to see an optometrist every 1 - 2 years.

It is sleety/snowy weather here and I have no motivation to do anything. I just want to curl up on the couch and watch Oprah or some other mindless crap!

I need water I think.

That is all.

You and me both mate... just had Griffin to the Doctors and now he's on ventoline to help his coughing... and all I want to do now is curl up and sleep after the crappy night we had with him... but instead I just shortened his new trousers so he could wear them TODAY MUM, TODAY !! he's just like me !!! Gotta be now. So that is done and I'm feeling like a very good mummy. Hope you are warm down there in the depth.
