Spent all day in bed today. Have another virus that’s again affecting my heart and pain. We went to the chemist and supermarket yesterday and the way I feel today it’s as though a demented donkey kicked me all the way there and back. It’s nice having Beeno curled up at the foot of my bed, he makes me feel a quiet happiness #badday #pain #toomuch #virus #illness #sick #inbed #stillinpjs #cat #tabby #beeno @princetabbypossum #pets #love #happiness #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniepain

Taking medication is never fun, so I bought a heap of cool kids pencil cases to keep it in and now I have a little smile when I take my meds. I especially love the heart one, which is interactive. I use that one twice a day and now I kinda look forward to it! #inner5yearold #pencilcases #medication #fun #makesmesmile #smalljoys #sparkly #mybffisaunicorn #feelinpeachy #heart #sequins #spoonie #spoonielife

Well that’s one way to find out your oven mitt has a hole in it. Of course I then grabbed it with the other hand, so burned a finger on that hand too #inthewars #holeinovenmitt #checkyourmitts #ow #throb #burn #blister #burntfingers #cooking #painful #spoonie #spoonielife #needspoons

This is the look he gives me when he sees me putting my shoes on. Em says that when Jay and I leave he yowls and yowls and wanders round the house yowling. He eventually settles down, but she now puts her headphones on to drown out the yowling, as there’s nothing she can do to comfort him. He’s on anti anxiety meds, but still hates it when we leave 🙁 Thankfully I don’t go out much #kitty #anxiety #poorbeeno #tabby #yowling #sadkitty #cat #sad #thatlook #medication #beautifulboy #beeno #tabbinobabbino #catnan #nandontgo #spoonie #spoonielife

We’re having a Super Blue Blood Moon tonight, the moon is so bright it’s like a spotlight. I quickly ducked back inside before I got bitten by a werewolf or vampire or some blood moon creature, though I couldn’t escape the mosquitos 😆🌖🌗🌘 #moon #eclipse #bright #spotlight #mosquitos #vampire #werewolf #bloodmoon

After having to spend most of the week in bed, I finally felt ready to get up and potter about, starting with a much needed shower. So what did I do but slip on the shower floor and pull a hammy 😣 Sitting here with my ice pack thinking of all the swear words I know #slipped #pulledahammy #hamstring #ouch #ice #bugger #swear #sigh #justmyluck #injured #shower #clumsy #pain #spoonie #spoonielife

@emmy97xox took a photo of me drawing in my new blank journal with my teeny lamp. She also snapped our Australia Day pavlova topped with morello cherries #drawing #blankpages #journal #teeny #lamp #pavlova #australiaday #morellocherries #whippedcream #spoonie #spoonielife

I’m feeling a little better this morning, well enough to write in my journal and start some colouring. The single sheet is a free download from @anniestegg as part of a colouring competition. I colour so slowly, as I can’t sit up or hold a pen for long, but it’s such a beautiful picture. I also love my #annetterand rat book and #harrypottercolouringbook which I haven’t even started yet! Lots to do! #colouring #journal #metime #rats #cat #patches #pens #colour #harrypotter #bedtable #inbed #comfort #feelingbetter #stilltired #recovering #takeiteasy

I’m still struggling with this virus and so is my daughter. To cheer me up a bit I put some lights around my window. I just love them #struggling #virus #lights #window #feelinglow #inpain #chronicpain #exhaustion #interruptedsleep #spoonie #spoonieproblems #spoonielife

I’m over my virus, but it’s left a lot of pain in it’s wake. Feeling terribly grumpy and short tempered this morning. Trying not to be, but just in so much pain.

A beautiful painting from @peppermintartgallery and some prints from an Aussie artist that Em and I put on the wall yesterday. I just love them, so delicate and cheerful. I’m feeling a bit better today.

This beautiful Beeno was so upset that I had to leave last night. Apparently he yowled a bit, then sat looking down the driveway waiting for me to come home. He’s had his eye on me all day and when I had a shower he slept pressed up against the bathroom door. He’s sleeping at my feet now. Such a precious boy, he knows I’m not feeling the best 💗 #beeno #beautifulboy #greeneyes #cat #catsarefamily #catnan #tabby @princetabbypossum #heknows #notfeelingwell #lookingoutforme #keepinganeyeonme #justmakingsure #stayhome #resting #inbed #iloveourcat #catsareamazing #catsareawesome #catsrule

I had to spend a few hours at the emergency department last night. All fine, just needed monitoring for a while. I do need a 24hr heart monitor, just to make sure all is ok. Got home at midnight, we’re all tired 😴 #emergency #hospital #doctor #nurses #heartmonitor #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieprobs #tired

I was in a bad flare after Christmas, starting to feel better, although having another rough morning. Managed to just stop myself throwing up from the pain. I’ve decided my resolutions this year were to be cleaner and look after myself more, which will mean fewer appointments and more resting. It’s still difficult not to overdo things when I have a bit of energy. I can’t seem to help pushing myself. All I can do is try!! #restandrecharge #spoonie #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #pain #chronicpain #nausea #almostthrewup #resting #resolutions #becleaner #takecareofmyself #nobodylookingafterme #sotired #noenergy #needtotakebreaks #cutback #appointments #toomany #cantcope #niffler #rattie #cactus #candle @emmy97xox

Em, me and Beeno are absolutely exhausted. We had a blast shopping this morning, but hit the wall when we got home. Beeno got a new blankie that he loved instantly. Rest time now 😴 #boxingday #tired #exhausted #hadfun #newblankie #cat #tabby @princetabbypossum #sleep #shopping #recharge #relax #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniefun @emmy97xox

Just in case people wonder what I do all day, the kids Dad came over, I started the boiled Christmas cake, had to call my real estate as our side fence crashed over yesterday in very noisy and spectacular fashion, then I got a delivery and two appointments in the post. The delivery was the wrong thing and both appointments were faffed up. I had to make a couple more calls about two other appointments as well as calls to a couple of other organisations, I mixed up the cake and put it in the oven, Em came down ill and Jay was in pain, I sorted them while I dashed around the kitchen making dinner, and I’ve finally just taken the cake out and it looks amazing! Yay!!! I’m so exhausted, everything hurts so much and I already know I’ll have to spend tomorrow in bed to recover. That’s how it goes, one full on day and then days recovering, but we have cake!!!!!

So very tired today. I haven’t even made it out of my pj’s. Hoping for some energy tomorrow, just a bit would be nice. Maybe enough to have a shower?

My daughter @emmy97xox and I did a thing. It was exhausting and painful, but yes, we gingerbreaded!! I honestly didn’t know if we’d ever get to the Christmas baking this year, but I had a surge of energy after dinner, so we hobbled into the kitchen. This batch came out beautifully. So very good #Christmas #baking #gingerbreadman #gingerbread #christmastree #shootingstar #cookies #biscuits #sopainful #andexhausting #butworthit #soglad #hopefullydomore #needtobakethecake #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniepain #red #redplate #christmascolours

I’ve been suffering with a bad flare lately. Lots of pain and exhaustion. I’m stuck in bed today, so I’m eating some Christmas chocolate to cheer myself up. Such cute little Santas.

I’m feeling this tonight. It’s been a busy week. I think I’ll sleep well all weekend. Definitely not many things will be done. #exhausted #havetostop #sotired #osteoarthritis #bursitis #chronicpain #havedonetoomanythings #needtorest #relax #recharge #spoonie #spooniepain #spoonielife
