Tag: <span>It March</span>

It’s March 3rd and we have about 3 inches of snow on the ground and it’s still falling. Ehhh, hello? Spring??

Louise tried to get to work twice this morning, and on her second attempt it took her an hour to get all of 8 miles so she turned round and came back home. I’m still not 100% so decided to stay at home the next couple of days, which is just as well as I wouldn’t have gotten to work this morning anyway!

I’m slowly recovering but still very lethargic with small bursts of energy leaving me completely drained. Writing this blog post, for example, will equal about a 20 minute doze on the couch later. Still it’s good to be able to do something, even if it’s very little and I’m hoping to be back to work later this week.

The timing of this is, of course, perfect. Perfectly awful that is… we are getting our new kitchen installed on Thursday this week and there is painting, plastering to be done, the removal of the cooker and dishwasher, the lifting of the floor… not to mention a myriad of other small jobs that we wanted done before the fitters arrived.

At this point I’ll thank my sister-in-law, my youngest nephew and my brother-in-law for coming over last weekend to help out. Claire and Mark removed all the tiles from the kitchen, and Paul helped remove some cabinets, all whilst I lay in bed trying to stay awake. What a great family. My parents will be helping once the kitchen is fitted as well, so at least Louise isn’t having to do everything.

I feel completely useless of course, and have made small attempts at helping, a little Polyfilla here, moving some things there, not much but at least I’m doing something!

That said, thanks for the well wishes. I am getting better, I slept all the way through last night without coughing once! (small victories and all that). I’ve another 4 weeks or so of antibiotics to get through but at least I am feeling a little better.

What about you? How are you? What have I missed??


Hang on!

It’s March. MARCH!! How the chuff did that sneak up on me?? That means Mother’s Day, father-in-laws birthday and.. er.. some other ‘family’ things that Louise will remember. Anyway I have a complaint to make:

I want an extra day.

We had one last year, why can’t we have one this year as well? In fact why can’t we just add a day to the year EVERY year? What’s to stop us? WHO will stop us?? Well apart from the Catholic church of course, but let’s be honest here. What power do they have these days? The days of the Inquisition are long gone even if it would seem that a large portion of the aforementioned church are still living their days with that mindset. I digress, this isn’t supposed to be an anti-Catholic rant.

In fact as we didn’t adopt this calendar until 1752 aren’t we owed .. er .. 639,480 days. Can we get a petition together, maybe start a campaign? I’m sure we can find a politician to give it some backing, just tell him that for each day he gains back, he’ll get a vote.
