I have been a bit set back by excessive tiredness caused by chemo and fighting off a cough/cold. However I think I definitely feel like blogging more today.
I have been trying to do other jobs though, rather than spend all my time on the computer because obviously my house now seems to be suffering from neglect.
I think that the thing that upsets me most about my recent struggle with illness is my lack of independence. I have to see a sick husband struggling to open a gift of flowers, struggling to find the right vase, not knowing about cutting the stems, removing leaves from the lower stems and putting in the plant food. My frustration in being too ill to do it myself. Feeling so helpless.
I have always done things without thinking. I have always had my health.
I have never given a thought that there is no one else to do it if I am laid low.
I looked round the garden the other day and noticed that the snowdrops are not quite as profuse as usual.
They too, have been set back by the hard winter and I have never felt so cold.
Today looks sunny and I hope that I can get out and about without knocking myself back.
