It has been a lovely sunny day here, but we haven’t gone out. My health has been very poor this week and it has taken a lot of mental, as well as physical, strength to even get out of bed for a few hours. I did manage to put on a reasonable outfit today, which is something. More about that later in the post.
Lovely Husband and I have also been struggling with the aftermath of Elder Son’s trip away last week. He is always difficult to manage when he comes back home and he has made family life very hard on several occasions this week. He can be so loving and kind (and he is most of the time), but his behaviour can also be overwhelming to us, as his parents.
Well, he is now back at work and I hope that he comes home in a good mood!
I have been trying to help LH with more household tasks this week. Early to mid-afternoon is usually when I feel strongest, so I have managed to do a few things then. Just little things, but they do add up. This week, we have been looking upwards at our rather battered lamp shades, of all things! Some of them had got rather old and tatty, others simply needed new bulbs. I wish we could have filmed the two of us struggling to balance – me on a ladder, LH trying to hold me steady. It must have looked so funny!
Oh, for the days of our youth! At least we still both have our sense of humour.
Here is today’s outfit:
- Navy cotton cable jumper – Lands’ End.
- Navy joggers – Cotton Traders.
- Blue resin earrings.
- Silk scarf, 90 cm, in bright pink, sky blue, white and navy – Cosmographia Universalis – Hermès. Tied in a half-bow knot using a MaiTai mother-of-pearl scarf ring.
Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
Love and best wishes,
