Time to heal.

Some weeks feel like a bigger struggle than others and this last week was one of those. Just as one area of life settles another becomes a trial!

My mind has been dealing with this in the form of some terrible nightmares, one of which was so awful that I took the pup into bed with me to calm my shaking. He thought it was great and in the back of my mind I thought 'rod for my own back'. Not so though. The next night he settled on his own bed and slept right through again. What a fantastic pup :D

I'm spending such a lot of time thinking and processing what has happened that I don't want to go on about it here, but find little else to share, so please forgive me for the infrequent posts.

The children have been laid low with another cold and my body seems filled with aches and pains, so as today is an inset day at school, I've declared it a duvet day. We will snuggle and build our strength while a roast dinner cooks itself in the oven. The pup will enjoy the rest too as he was very sick last night after scoffing something dodgy in the garden!!!

oh bless you- nothing worse than that...i hope your mind rests n not to over worry about it...i used to get such realistic nightmares as a child that my mum couldnt wake me out of them...every night id would get so scared of falling asleep...but the best thing was to focus on other things...easy said than done...after a few years i started telling my dream 'im going to wake up- so you cant harm me'...and it really worked! ;0)x enjoy your roasty and duvet day ;0)xxxx

I think that this time of year magnifies things much more than other times of year. It is cold and gets dark much quicker so I think that adds to our anxieties. I hope you had a chance to rest and recupperate today and hopefully tomorrow things won't seem so bad. x

Hoping you are *all* feeling better soon, take good care.

Don't you worry about us here, when you're better, of body and spirit - we'll still be around and happy to share in a strengthened and settled 'Yarrow's' posts.
