It’s crowded here right now…

“Nurses dispense comfort, compassion, and caring without even a prescription.” ~ Val Saintsbury

 

While I’m busy on bed rest just now I’m being very well looked after.

Harry and Rufous take turns to stay with me during the day.

Except for nap time, when we all bunk in together.

There’s no chance of me moving. I’m well secured to the bed by their heavy heads.

During the night they are there beside me every time I get up (which is lots due to my UTI still not resolved).

I feel very loved and cared for.

I still don’t seem to have much energy and tire after the simplest activities, but I can finally see some small improvements, so I’ll keep resting and following doctors’ orders.

June is a fabulous month for attending to our own wellbeing. I hope you’re carving out some time for yourselves too. Your health and happiness are important. Please don’t play second-best in your own life!

Biggest hugs and love to you all,

Nicole <3 xoxo

 

 

My Unscheduled Five-Star Holiday!

Hello Lovelies,

I’m having a little enforced rest in this lovely five-star resort (some would call it a hospital!) due to my naughty misbehaving heart. Thank you, Lyme Disease. Even on the way out of my body you bang the doors and throw major tantrums.

So, I won’t be blogging very frequently for the next little while, or facebooking, or answering emails and messages. I’m sure you’ll understand. And of course, addled brain often here right now, courtesy of morphine et al.

I’m going to be just fine, now that I have all this horrid pain under control. But I have promised my doctors that I will lie quietly and rest (yes, I had to hold my hand over my heart and swear to do no work!) for a fortnight.

The view is fabulous, and there is room service. The nurses are all angels disguised by flat shoes and sensible uniforms. I am being very well taken care of.  I have also been promised similar treatment back at the farm.

So I’m waving to you from bed, and sending my love to you all,

See you after my rest. This is my best 5am kissy face for you!

Big love and hugs,

Nicole <3 xoxo
