I woke at 4pm as “someone” got up to the loo…. That was us wide awake. I am sleeping very heavily but when I wake, the mind is whirring. This morning I was singing Kate Bush, Babooshka…. Over and over in my head…. It’s a track from my Tuesday night exercise class…. Over and over, the same line over and over and over 😂
Finally got up at 5am and got ready for the Farm. It’s soooo dark in the mornings now but Fridays I get a lift with Craig. (Keep forgetting to say that Abbie the camper van is in the garage again…. This time it’s her rear. I finally had enough of her hirple at the back end. 🤦🏻♀️😆 she needs new rear arms, bushes, hubs and bearings. Needy much. A mere £422.22pence, precisely. I’m driving a Tartan camper at the moment which my Tartan boss has kindly let me use!)
Anyway I’m digressing… back to 5am. My first period in about three or four or five or six months appears….. erm thank you new hormones…. I immediately feel the stomach cramp kick in. (I am sorry about all this very personal chat but if this is to help any other women out there then we need to normalise talking about these things…. I realise some people sailed through menopause without anything but I’ve potentially lost my career as a result so I’m gonna scream it from the rooftops and am very proud of the celebrities who have brought this to my attention).
So…. The farm was great. I worked with Cathy this morning and we kept each other motivated. She often tells me that she loves reading the blog as so many of the other girls say, just thought she’d like a wee mention this morning 😆 We worked hard!
As we drive home the sun comes up and it’s a beautiful day so we decide to take the dogs straight out. It seemed much colder. There was cloud coming over the hills and a rainbow forming.
We had our first frost this year.
Check the size of the sun.
And the colours of the autumnal beech hedge against the blue sky.
Yet still the cloud is coming….
I love this next shot. It made me smile to be with my wee family this morning.
The rainbow finally fully formed, bearing in mind I’m walking looking backwards all the time. Craig turns round and I’m not there 😂😂
He should know by now I’ve stopped to take photos. 📸
I came home and got started on the housework… eradicating dog hair from the house once again then was almost late getting ready for work. Time flies when you’re hoovering. 😂
I’ve been in the little gift shop today and as usual it’s been really lovely. Lots of lovely customers to chat to and we restocked lots too.
I am exhausted by the time I get home. My stomach and back ache. My feet and legs are jumping and I walk in to the smell of lasagne cooking!! I could honestly live on Craig’s lasagne!
We have all the candles on, the fire lit, feet up and watching SAS Rogue Heroes on tv.
I might have an alcohol free beer. Cheers!
Stay safe everyone ♥️♥️♥️
