Squaring up for a fight!

Beauty is so cute.

Not the way to make friends!

Beauty LOVES sand!

Yes I am awake really early AGAIN!
I awoke suddenly this morning feeling as if my right arm had just been kicked by a donkey.
It took me a few minutes to realise that the pain was so bad because I had taken the last of my new singing, all dancing super duper pain killers at 6pm and the effects had worn off. I hadn't taken any meds at 10pm because I was worried that because they were so strong they would keep me awake.

However, I am always worried aout taking pain killers due to the possibility of causing further problems.
Once you able to make your pain go away, you may think that your problem is also gone. This, in turn, can cause you to lose valuable time that could have been used working toward a cure. Today, many people with advanced stages of cancer, diabetes, and other problems used pain killers to mask pain, instead of solve the underlying problem.
If you decide to take pain meds, you may also wind up with more injuries to areas that are in pain. For example, if you have joint pain, you may decide to lift something, or stretch too far. Since the pain killers mask the pain, you will not be aware that you are causing more damage to your body. Regardless of how much you hate being in pain, sometimes you need that signal in order to prevent further damage to your body.

Sometimes however the pain is so bad you just think JUST GIVE ME DRUGS!

Again,even though I am blogging, I am managing to multi-task!

As well as blogging I am doing laundry and I did worry initially that the noise might wake SnoWhite up whose bedroom is off the kitchen but then I remembered THIS IS SNOWHITE WE ARE TALKING ABOUT, she could sleep through Fire Alarms!

However,I know from experience that Fiona cannot sleep through earth quakes!

Beauty started back at school yesterday and she had a wonderful time.

Back with all her mates, computer time, books and toys and play time.........what's not to like?

Plus Beauty now has 2 sessions a week with the child minder, a pick up from school on a Monday and the child minders bring her back to the house by 6pm.

I love it.

And the 2nd child minder is Beauty's original childminder(remember the part-time flight attendant?) so Beauty is really happy.And they took her to JUMP so a good time was had by all.
The following picture is of a knitting pattern for Ice Skate warmers.
Question.....can ice skates feel the cold?
I was looking for a knitting pattern for socks when I came across this!

Your elbow puts my split lip into perspective. It makes eating painful but at least I can sleep. Poor you!


Naaaaa.....I am just being a wimp!
However,now my elbow feelas if the donkey is gnawing on my elbow rather than kicking it.




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.
