Today I was awake at 9am, although I didn’t take Ky to school I was up and dressed. We watched the spider wick chronicles and it hit a nerve.
How the dad had spent his whole life focused so much on the magical critters he had abused what matter most in his life. In the words of said man. ‘I can’t believe I spent so much time on these magical beings I forgot that I actually had my own’ or along those lines to his daughter.
How true, and how much do we often taken for granted those that are in front of our noses for things we feel we need to know or want instead.
I am or well I have been trying today to attempt some foods for my pain free diet. I had chia and flaxseed porridge for breakfast, and for lunch I made turmeric cauliflower soup. Which was actually quite delicious and the recipe will be up on my blog soon.
The idea is that turmeric amongst others included in the recipe above are anti inflammatory aka will help the inflammation that is making my muscles ache!
I did some tidying and by that point I was exhausted. Andy sat with J and I ran to bed so I could get a few hours sleep.
When I awoke I could hear both my boys downstairs and knew it was time to get ready. We were going to a family BBQ. I 2was so thankful for my few hours of sleep so that I felt a tad more normal and got myself dressed.
The Boys absolutely loved themselves there were so many other little boys they could play with along with swings and a trampoline. I can assure you lots of wrestling moves were carried out. When the boys got Tired the boys nanna took them so they could go to bed and I found my new favourite drink.
Archers Peach Snapps is actually so nice with lemonade and that along with a strawberry and lime boulders is what I drank. I am so proud of myself being in such a social situation and coping. I did hide a few times in jacket under my head though just to take a few breathers.
Now it is 12.04 and I am about to get a lovely lush bath bomb bath and get into Bed.
Life is about accepting you can’t change anything but yourself.
