After a great week of making things the weekend has been a lousy one for my body.  I am also finding it very tiring to cope with my mum at the moment as her depression has a very firm hold.  This means I have to get used to phone calls about things that are disasters which turn out not to be or our swimming trips together being cancelled as she is going back to bed for the day.  I have tried to contact the community mental health services to let them know how things are, however there seems very little they can do.

Golly I do sound miserable!  Most definitely time to think of some of the blessings that have been poured down on me this week.

910. Beautiful colours being combined to make something new.
911. Copious cups of tea and chats with friends.
912. The smell of my daughters home baking.
913. Happy children at school.
914. A little bit of clearing and pruning in my front garden.
915. Getting to church even when not feeling well.
916. Click and collect shopping.
917. The smell of clean wet dog.
918. A squeaking Guinea pig.
919. A hot teddy to ease my back.
