Things are crazy here as usual, nothing new to report except to say, my knees have no wish to work for me presently. Nasty horrid things that they are, they have quit their service of me in tandem and have installed a ton of sharp pains and aches that periodically make me sound as if I have terets.
Trust me, I am not making fun of anyone with terets when I say this, if anything I am commiserating with them about their condition. It is seriously no fun not having the ability to control what words our brains wish to spew out, instead of the polite conversation we wish we were having, and my outbursts are minimal by comparison to what they go through, but outbursts there have been. Many, shockingly loud outbursts at that!
I have had many events this week where I was walking around town, minding my own business, taken a step forward and my kneecap has remained behind. MAN the PAIN!!! It is indescribable. Needless to say, a flurry of swear words flew from my unsuspecting lips and shocked the living daylights out of passers by. Oh well, at least they had their day broken up with a little light entertainment. Thankfully I am scheduled for cortisone injections in both knees in a week’s time so normal knee service should resume!
My son has zero sympathy for my plight. He is in hysterics laughing at me from the minute I appear at the start of his day, (mine has started a good two hours earlier, just sayin’) to the very end of his day (mine usually ends a few hours afterwards). Apparently it is the funniest thing in the world when your mother, who is in tremendous pain, is hobbling around the house swearing profusely and shouting loudly that she is disowning her own knees. Who knew comedy was so cheap?
Anyway… moving on….
On a much more serious note, for all those of you who follow Jenna Kirkpatrick, Raspberry Ripples blog. Our darling Miss Pink is very poorly right now and is in hospital having had a rather nasty start to the week, her man has put a post up to bring us all up to speed on her condition, but please, if you follow her, and even if you don’t, please go send your best wishes, thoughts, well wishes, any kind of good vibe really, to a beautiful soul who is struggling terribly right now. Let’s see if we can lift her spirits up and give her some of our strength. She is that person who would give you hers if she thought you needed it. She is beautiful inside and out.
And…. moving on to the fabulous world of wildlife…
I have bats in the loft again (YAY) a woodpecker tapping away at the telegraph pole at the top of my drive, a squirrel tapping on my window with an empty shell case from an acorn and a dog who thinks that every time mummy appears its playtime. I have been taken over by wildlife and I love it!
And then there was this…
The other day I was bemoaning my lot about people on here who do not click the like button after they have read a post. It doesn’t matter. I don’t need it, I woke up in a sore mood because the other side of the bed which had been full of man when I went to sleep was empty when I woke up!
Now this girl likes her early morning playtime, so it was a bad start to my day. I had a poor me moment that spilled over into a mini rant on one of my comments on my latest post. Meh… I was out of order, the fact that you read my work at all is actually more than enough for me. Sometimes we want more than we actually need. Keep on reading peeps, that’s all I need from you. If you keep visiting I will keep writing. No doubt some of you will be pleased to hear that a spanking did take place because of the monumental strop I threw when said Man re-appeared later in the day… I was the proud owner of a very hot bottom shortly there after.
All that said, I am playing seriously with the idea of creating a novel from Top Hat & Tails and the continuing chapters will be password protected (when I have worked out how to do that) so if you wish to keep reading as a test reader, just email me when the post is up and live and I will email you back with the password. Its all free, but at least I will get a feel for who is avidly following this series and whether it is worth going down the route of publishing it.
Have a good day my lovely peoples!
Jenna please get well soon, I miss you Miss Pink!
