And..........STOP!

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
I knew it would happen, it's inevitable really. I've had such a great Summer, topped off with my fantastic Florence Adventure!
 
This week my body has said STOP!!! It's refusing to move, refusing to get up......my get up and go, has gone!
 
 
 

 

 
 
 
So my views this week have been limited, bedroom curtains.....very pretty, could look at them all day!
 
 

 

 
 
 
 
 
The view of my legs wrapped in my Happy Blanket! Lots of snoozes on the sofa!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Or sat in the chair reading, bit of crochet, catching up with your lovely blogs.....
 
 

 

 
 
 
I was determined to resist this sofa today, get on with stuff, the kind of stuff that needs doing.....(I have cleaned the bathroom), but it's not yet 10:30am and guess where I am?! Yep, sat on the sofa! My body really doesn't want to move!!!
 
 
 
I'm ok with this, I'm happy really.....my get up and go, could have gone before I'd had all this fun! Now that would never have done, would it!!!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
So when I can, I'll make up some more bundles for my shop.......
 
 
 
 
 
 
Tidy around the garden.........
 
 
 
 
 
 
Might even do that in my new wellies! Love my new wellies, I was sat in them the other day, for quite a while, the girls thought I'd gone bonkers!
I was thinking about sleeping in them, like I did when I was 5 years old.....shiny new red wellies, so tempting when you're 5, oh and of course its easy when you don't share your bed. I'm not sure Mr Bea would approve, do you?!
 
 
 
So I'm Stopping, listening to my body, getting back the balance! I like fun too, but I know my body, and I know when I need balance, and that's now!
 
Talking of balance, my bank balance is looking very wobbly too, so I really need to stop spending.......but that's a post all on its own!!
 
 
Thank you as always for your wonderful, supportive comments.....I think I've almost caught up with your blogs now. I have read them, but not always been able to comment.
 
Welcome to those new here, I'm usually more lively than this.....normal craziness will resume soon!
 
 
Bye for now.....feel another snooze coming on!!!
 
 
Ada :) xxx
 
 
 
 
 
 
Move over Minnie......make room for me! :) xxx

  8. You are tired now Ada but boy did you fit a lot into your summer. I was stunned when I read your posts saying how much you were doing. Rest now and I bet you'll be flying like that again in no time. Sleep tight.

  9. Hi Amanda

    Lucky you to get to go to Florence... it looks wonderful. Love you bedroom curtains, I'm sure you have shown them before but I'd forgotten. When the weather is rainy and cold its good to have a rest and recharge your batteries in the comfort of home. I've given myself a headache this morning trying to "quilt as you go" joining the squares. It's made me swear I have to admit! Take care Andrea x

  11. Glad you were able to enjoy Firenze before you completely wore out. Take care, and enjoy your rest. (I would only ever get black rain boots, and I loved them too ... so glossy before they were all scuffed!). Wendy x

  12. Hope you have a good snooze :)
    I'm in the office - loads to do in the house, but too tired after a days work. Oh well - it will wait. Like your stuff will. I guess we need to appreciate the here and now - whatever that may be. x

  13. Snooze away. I know what you mean. Everyone in our office is feeling poorly (I blame it all on the germy students - I work at a university) and I've been going to bed at 9 pm this week and sleeping like a log. xx

  23. I know exactly what you mean. I'm realizing that I haven't done much for my own maintenance lately, I've been too busy with the kids. I had a haircut this morning and I feel a little better. I hope you aren't coming down with an illness. Get lots of rest!

  25. Hope you feel recharged soon. I've been trying to leave a comment on your blog for a while but naughty blogger(?) keeps disconnecting me! I wanted to tell you that I have been suitably inspired by your lovely crochet and I bought myself a hook and persevered long enough to make a granny square, which is now a coaster.Whether I will make more is down to time I guess, but thankyou Ada for the inspiration!

  26. I hope you will take things easy and not do too much too quickly however much you wish to. You do have a lovely things to look at around you and wonderful memories of your long summer. Take care.

  38. Your body is telling you to slow down, take it easy, it will bounce back when its ready. Just follow your body, it will take you to where you need to be.
