    I've had a little hiccup with my medication recently. Unfortunately I have had to be taken off my current tablets under my Drs. assistance and have had a few side effects which have kept me away from the computer.

    I have missed you all and hope you are doing okay. I will try to get back to answering my posts one by one as time goes along.

    In some ways this last week has been a little daunting with the migraines I seem to attract when coming off tablets!

    In other ways I have had a much needed rest. My back and neck have greatly appreciate the forced time in bed.

    I tried to remember the words to other songs besides "Old McDonald had a farm" but that is the only song that has come to me all week while I have been in bed with my eyes shut and the curtains closed.

    I've thought about how I would like to rearrange the furniture in the house and how we could enlarge the chook run.

    My mind has thought up poems, but then I forgot the first few lines as I couldn't open my eyes long enough to write them down! Kept my mind busy and away from negative thoughts all the same.

    I've discovered bacon bones, an onion and frozen veg make up a nice easy soup! I only had to cut up the onion!

    Our cat has enjoyed keeping my feet warm and spending extra time on her blanket on the bed.

    Hopefully my clients will have missed me and will appreciate all the extras I do for them, quite often in my own time!

    Anyway, it is wonderful to be able to sit up for a while.

    Cheers to you all, from Mrs. Dools or Lauren

    Hi Lauren! I hope you are feeling better and have enjoyed just relaxing in bed - sometimes it's really the best thing! Thank you for what you do here on BB, you're a true trooper - remember to look after yourself! 

    Keep smiling!

    Dear Crystal,

    Thank you so much! You have made my day, my week and even my year!

    I would have liked to have been doing a lot more in bed than having my eyes glued shut and wishing the trucks on the road near us would disappear and the birds would sing a bit softer as my head felt like it was going to explode. Ha. Ha.

    The rest has been lovely. I have so many plans and ideas I would now like to put into place once I have more energy!

    Wishing you a great day Crystal! Thanks for the encouragement.

    From Lauren

    Welcome back Lauren!

    The place seemed empty without you. Hope you are over those nasty migraines. Please take it easy for a little while at least. Hope you're fully better soon.

    All the best

    TMB

    Hey thanks TMB.

    One step at a time and one day at a time and I will get there!

    Today is a whole new day with so many blessings to receive if I just reach out to grab them.

    Your appreciation is one of those blessings.

    Cheers for that!
