Floors, trauma and crackers.

Yesterday we actually got the hall floor tiled two years after we’d had it newly tiled, this time due to a radiator that decided to leak when we had a planned weekend away. Luckily our daughter was at home dog sitting and managed to stop it. The poor guy who laid it the first time nearly froze as the weather had turned so much colder, the glue took ages to dry, the grout didn’t want to dry even with the heating on extra high and I was still washing it before bed. But it looks good, so worth the wait. In between trying not to let the dog escape out the front door, daily visits to see mum, going over homework for my granddaughter I somehow managed to fit in a shower, cook, clean and have enough time to eat 😁.

Today started off with the usual routine of sorting the pets out, very happy to say there’s been no vomit or poo to clean up, at least not inside. This week is definitely not the normal, hubbies shift week is usually exhausting, he gets home at silly o’clock disturbs me, the dog and cats who, think it’s time to get up, “oh it’s play time let’s see what noisy toys I can chew and I might even bury it under their pillow if they don’t play with me” by this time I’m awake. After several hours in and out of consciousness I get up, but after the mistaking a dead leaf for poo the other day I make sure I put the light on!! A normal day? Not sure I even know what one is if there is such a thing. Hubbies friend turned up this morning and of all things they went to see a different fishing lake! Crackers yes it’s been tipping it down. Talking of crackers actually sat down and started making some for Xmas I’ve been planning so they’re all environmentaly friendly. Other crackers is my daughters x partner, she’s spent years traumatised by him, she’s now getting stronger and at long last is sticking up to him, which is good as today the verbal abuse and language is far from desirable, in fact it’s discusting. Going into a counselling mode and trying to be impartial is getting harder as it’s frustrating seeing someone so upset, angry and distraught. At least she is beginning to laugh again, I always say laughing is the best medicine. #crackers #trauma #normal #floor

I graduated in July after 3 years of juggling work, an elderly parent and a daughter returning home. Then there's a husband, a dog and two cats. I turned 60 in September, hectic, yes but I did it 😁.

  1. Wow it sounds like you have a busy life racing with the clock!
    It is so hard to be impartial when you love someone.
    I pray your daughter will be treated with love and respect she deserves in the future.


    1. Thank you, my daughter is doing much better although her children don’t want anything to do with her unless she changes her sexuality, it’s so sad. I’m proud of the way she is handling it.
