Today is Sunday, the sabbath, a day of rest........however, somebody forgot to tell Beauty.We have been up and awake(well sort of awake!) since 7am and Beauty has been playing games on Mama Mirabelle's website. I am now aware of where snakes and lions and monkeys and big horn sheep like to live and what they like to do!I never cease to be amazed at the information that I learn from Beauty's websites, computers are amazing things. When I was Beauty's age my only source of information was of course the local library which was not that extensive in the late 60's.I was addicted to reading books about Tutankhamun and there was one book that I read from cover to cover many times. Who would have thought I would grow up to do a History degree?

Another book I read as a child was AN HOUR IN THE MORNING,but it certainly did not have the same profound effect upon me!It was the story of a maid in Edwardian times and how an hour spent working in the morning seemed to achieve more than an hour spent working in the afternoon.
When I get up I get Beauty ready for school and take her there and I also collect all the rubbish and sort it, collect the dishes and empty and fill the dishwasher and collect all the dirty clothes and sort out the washing and drying ,sort out the animals AND then the best part of the day....... I lie down to recover! Without that morning nap(well lie down really) I couldn't cope with the rest of the day.And then I get up and carry on!
The funny thing is when you tell other people that you have a disability , many people think of you as being ill but apart from when I get an infection like anyone else I do not think of my self as ill, exhausted all the time but definitely not ill.

Thanks to PBS my ears are being assaulted by the dulcet tones of BARNEY, perhaps my praise of the computer was a little hasty!

I too like getting my chores done in the morning. On the days I don't it seems everything is just extra messy.




An Irish Blessing

(A Blessing from St. Patrick)
May the road rise to meet you,

May the wind be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

May the rains fall soft upon your fields,

And, until we meet again,

May God hold you in the hollow of His hand.
