Apart from trying to work and “teach” my son most days, I’ve actually been trying to reorganise the house. I already spent soo much time at home due to being disabled and working from home anyway, so my time out of the house was precious. No time outside at all makes me a little cuckoo (we don’t have a garden) but changing the look of my home has an element of newness and change. Funnily enough my husband, bless him, trying to help out, decided to buy a new quilt for our double bed (he bought king size), so we now have a cover-less quilt as none of ours fit it. This would truly be the ideal prize lol

Last week she fell down the stairs with the vac, and this week she put her hand between our two dogs, one who is blind, and she was bitten. Her hand is now infected and we have spent the past couple of evenings up at the hospital having her hand checked-She doesn’t do things by halves….She has been speaking with a surgeon who will more than likely have to operate on her hand to sort out the infection this week! Mothers!
