Down, down, down.
I am feeling lost again this morning. Lack of sleep may have something to do with that. The girls were playing musical bed all night.
But the sun is shining, its warm out, I am getting 3 hours off later, wish i could say I was doing something exciting and fun, but today I need to go shopping (the girls want home made pizza later, i need some tomatoes), pay some bills, put money in the bank, pick up perscriptions for Nicole and Peter, and laundry.
So aside from all boring stuff, I am going to try and list some things that make me happy.
1. Peter. He may be wired up all the time, but he comes out with some cracking one liners. He remains cheerful 99% of the time, and is always willing to do some publicity when I get it into my head that we need to do something. Yesterday I heard an 'Ow' come from him. He was a fair distance from his machine. i dont know if he forgot he was connected or what, but the look of amusement he gave the LVAD as he reluctantly went to move it to where he wanted to be was priceless. It was definatly a you had to be there moment.
2,3,4. My 3 daughter. Nicole, Lauren and Serena. They light up my life, even when fighting and squabbling. They have gone through so much stress in the last 2.6years but they are still amazing children. They behave very well, and we often get compliments on their behaviour when out. I was at the cinema with Serena the other week, and a lady stopped me at the end of the film to congratulate me on having a wonderfully behaved daughter and said how beautiful she is as well.
5. My dolls. I restore My Child dolls from the 1980's. I havent done many lately as I have been busy elsewhere, but I have two that now need work. Its great fun taking a filthy, sometimes mouldy doll with tangled hair who is nude, and cleaning it up, reweaving its hair, finding an original outfit and putting it on display or up for sale for someone else to enjoy.
6. Prams. (laugh at this one if you want lol) I also like tinkering with prams and buggies. Around xmas, I found an old silvercross coachbuilt pram on ebay and bought it for £13. When I bought it home, my mum said she wouldnt touch it with a bargepole. I spent a few evenings cleaning the frame, carrycot, hood, steaming it, washing it etc etc. Then eventually put it back up for sale, and got £130 for it. I was pleasently surprised.
7. Rollerskating. i havent been for over 10years,but I love it. I am hoping to restart it soon once I am fitter.
will think of more later.
