This week has been on the challenging side.
Liaising with the car insurance people has been difficult and frustrating.
The body is behaving badly because I made it do too much. The mind is following the body's example and is stiff, mostly non functional and sore.
However, today a number of positives emerged.
The car is going in for a quote tomorrow, at a smash repairer quite close to us. The insurance company has heard of the repairer and has not yet raised any objections. A win.
Tomorrow our heating and hot water systems and the evaporative cooler are being serviced before winter bites. All by the same company. Who is offering a special deal. Another win.
I was on call for Lifeline last night, and the phone was still ringing just before 1 am. Without waking himself she says with no small degree of jealousy. All things I could handle, so another win. And the counsellors I spoke to (I was wearing my supervisor hat) sounded better at the end of each call. More winning - on a roll here.
And we have planted 100 Scented Mixed Jonquils - near paths, windows and doorways so we get maximum benefit. Yes I fell over, but I merely lay on the path and kept planting. I refuse to give in. And got up when we had finished and rewarded myself with a cup of chai. The bulbs are just starting to shoot so they need to go in fairly quickly now, but it does look within the realms of possibility. Just.
And last years bulbs are also shooting. Promising. Tomorrow I hope to get at least another 100 in, and ideally closer to 200. We will see.
All digits crossed.
