Me time, silly o’clock, respite.

I am never quite sure what the day will bring, grumpy husband, stressed daughter, needy mother or the dog and cats not making their mind up whether to stay in, go out or just annoy me each time I’m on the phone or sit down in front of this PC.

Still not entirely sure what I think I’m doing writing this blog or attempting too but, I think it helps alleviate some of my frustrations. At the moment there is no respite from anything, not one day goes by where I have anytime to my self, to do what I would like seems near impossible, is one day to much to ask? or am I being selfish?

Sleep does not happen so rather than get wound up laying in bed pondering about work, housework, family I get up. 5.00 am, it’s tipping it down, cold too but the peace and quiet is magical, even the birds are still sleeping. That is what is so beautiful and makes it worthwhile getting up. If that is the only time I get to myself then it’s worth every minute. Some people have nothing so who I am to complain. Not that I am really complaining there’s more to be grateful for than not. Today the weather may be terrible but it could be worse. I have a home, a family, bills are paid and there’s always something to eat. I have my health, a sense of humour and I can laugh at stupid things, alot of the time the things I’ve done my self!

All in all life is good so here’s to another interesting day.

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 😁.
