I still spent most of today in bed, although I am improving. I did manage to sit up for a while and wrap some presents #Cat #Beeno #Tabby #exhausted #inbed #satup #wrapping #presents #christmas #energy #gettingbetter #improving #lesspain #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniepain

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. Delicious too! #bad #flare #pain #exhaustion #inbed #cantgetup #dizzy #chocolate #santa #coin #goldcoin #spoonie #spooniepain #spoonielife #christmas

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

It’s been a wonderful birthday morning. Pressies and croissants. A gorgeous kindle cover from my son @doggie015 and my favourite perfume from my daughter @emmy97xox she also made the card #happy #presents #chloe #kindlecover #perfume #handmadecard #breakfast #croissants #lucky #birthday #spoonie #spoonielife

We made it!! After missing the last two events due to flare ups, we got to the @cathavenau Catmus fair. We were only there for just over 20 mins, as we run out of steam quickly, but it was great! We got some cupcakes and cat things and the best honey joy I’ve ever eaten! We bought some raffle tickets too. The stalls there were awesome and everyone was really friendly #cathaven #catmus #fair #christmas #fun #cats #cushioncover #cupcakes #gelpens #wandtoy #honeyjoy #sodelicious #bestever #gotthereearly #food #stalls #raffle #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniepain

Love this video from @thelanevineyard When I lived on a farm I used to see kangaroos all the time. I do miss that #kangaroo #kanga #roo #vineyard #country #aussie #green #hills #jump #bounce #wildlife #fauna #missthis #australia

The pain is bad this evening, so I’m in some new pj’s in bed. I’m hoping my pain meds will help, as I do have some washing that needs dealing with. It’s so frustrating when you start a task and then struggle to complete it or just don’t. #pain #bad #pyjamas #inbed #washing #struggling #frustrating #hoping #spoonie #spoonielife #spooniepain #spoonieproblems #painpaingoaway #dontcomebackanotherday #tryingtodistractmyself #ow

I gave myself a Christmas pressie this year and bought these vintage ornaments. I love decorations with mice, rats or cats. We started decorating ages ago, as it takes us so long to put everything up! #christmas #decorations #noel #mouse #rat #cat #silver #bell #vintage #christmastree #ornaments #present #startearly #celebrate #lovechristmas #fun #happy #enjoy #spoonie #spoonielife

Had a very stressful, painful morning at a specialist appointment. It wasn’t helped by the fact I woke up just after 4am in pain and couldn’t get back to sleep, so I was aching and exhausted before I even got there. It was so nice to get home to our sweet pets.

Does anyone in Western Australia need a moggy to keep them company?

One of my friends planted a rose in my garden from his Mums garden. He wasn’t sure what colour it was, but thought it was pink. Well, it is pink! I just love it 💗 My daughter is doing better and we saw her specialist this morning. He’s going to try her on another medication, but not for a few days. Lots of rest and recovery for her this week #pink #rose #garden #bloom #flower #friend #planted #colour #sun #spring #spoonie #daughter #spoonielife #spoonieprobs

Our sweet Beans catching some zzzz’s. We’ve had quite an amazing day, when trying to pay for some groceries and having the card declined despite their being money on it, the man behind us quietly stepped in, pulled out his card and offered to pay. It was such a sweet random act of kindness. Living on a pension isn’t easy and to have someone do that was just amazing. I was so stunned, I kept thanking him and he just smiled and told us to have a great day. Well that made my day! I never thought something like that would happen to me. It’s reaffirmed that there are kind people in the world. I hope something wonderful happens for that man, and when I can I’ll try to pay it forward #😊 #randomactsofkindness #amazingday #kind #generous #sweet #goodpeople #happy #mademyday #wontforget #payitforward #groceries #cat #ourboy #tabby #spoonie #spoonielife #smiling

This is what we’re dealing with today. This was my daughters update. I’m so worried and I wondered if anyone had any info on lamictal rash, other than the scary stuff on google. Both my kids have disabilities and days like this are hard #daughter #rash #worried #kids #disabilities #lamictal #info #scary #spoonie #spoonieproblems #spoonielife

This’ll be me for the next week with my feet up! Having an awful flare, so have cancelled all appointments and will spend the week recovering. The pain, exhaustion and nausea have worn me out #kitty #rest #recover #feetup #flare #nausea #pain #exhaustion #cant #needtorest #cat #sleeping #catsofinstagram #prettykitty #tabby @princetabbypossum

This is what I have on my bedroom door. Having a bad flare today. I managed to get to an appointment this morning and have been in bed in my pj’s all afternoon. Em had to bandage up my hand as two knuckles and fingers have swollen up and the arthritis gloves weren’t keeping them still enough #flare #feelawful #pyjamas #inbed #mydoor #bedroom #rats #blackandwhite #unwell #pain #swollenfingers #bandage #spooniepain #spoonie #spoonielife

Now that I can no longer garden outside, I’ve decided to get a few more plants inside. So off we went to pick up some plants. I had a rough day yesterday, so I still don’t feel the best, when on the way home we heard sirens screaming behind us. I was going through a round about, so I started pulling over and slowing down, but the couriers van behind me was nearly ramming me trying to get past, so I kept slowing rolling forward and he squeezed through. It was then we realised the two police cars were after him! I feel I’ve done my bit for justice today as I slowed him down and let the cops catch up, but it shook us all up. My heart was certainly racing! It was a relief to get home #plants #carchase #caughtup #scary #police #shaken #kindaexciting #goodstory #ihopetheycaughthim #stayinghome #restandrecover #spoonie #spooniepain #spoonielife #indoorgarden

When #Halloween coincides with #tongueouttuesday Our Halloween plan is to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, as none of us are into horror. We might also eat a bit of chocolate 😊#happyhalloween #tot #tabby #beeno #bat #ghost #pumpkin #witch #fantasticbeastsandwheretofindthem #newtscamander #niffler #boo #chocolate

It’s International Cat Day and Tabbs is wondering whether that means extra treats? We adore our boy, he has a lot of nick names, Tabbino Babbino, Beans, Beeno and pretty kitty. I gave him to my daughter for her 8th birthday and he’s now 12 and a bit cranky 😊 She named him Tabby Possum not realising he was a tabby. He has his own instagram @princetabbypossum His hobbies include waking my son at 4am for breakfast, swiping at us as we go past, making biscuits, loud purring, curling up on my foot and hanging out with his mama @emmy97xox #internationalcatday #weloveourboy #cat #tabby #beeno #tabbs #treats #paws #birthdaypresent #bestpresentever #wrappedaroundhispaw #furgrandson #furkid #catsofinstagram #cats_of_instagram #hisday #love #catlove #cathavenau

Friday feels from @lizclimo I haven’t made it out of bed this morning, as I predicted I’m very sore and sorry with joints as stiff as the tin man. Rest and recovery today #Friday #fridayfeels #lizclimo #coffee #bear #rabbit #spoonie #osteoarthritis #bursitis #rest #recovery #spooniepain #spoonielife #spoonieproblems

I did over 2 hours of driving today, appointments etc. Em and I managed to grab a coffee and share an amazing gluten and dairy free orange cake in Leederville. So very good, definitely going back for more! @foamcoffeebar @emmy97xox #coffee #cake #orange #dairyfree #glutenfree #chalkart #yum #delicious #goodcoffee #busyday #tired #sore #wontbeabletomovetomorrow #apples #oranges #snoopy #spoonie #spoonielife #appointments

I’ve bought some new pyjamas as that’s what I mainly wear some days. Sometimes they mix and sometimes they match! I was in these ones this morning, but my daughter helped me dye my hair and the whole process has left me so exhausted and in pain I’ve crawled into a fresh pair. At least dinner is cooking in the slow cooker. #pain #exhausted #toomuch #nomorespoons #pyjamas #mixanddontmatch #spoonie #spooniepain #spoonielife #letshaveapyjamaparty
