I've been resting with my foot up, doing all that sitting down stuff I'd been planning. After all, my Mum has been using a wheelchair for over twenty years now, so I'm not about to start moaning over a few days of immobility. Round here we're very used to leaving things within arm's reach and checking everything is on hand before we go out. It's not really new. The Big Kids have been brilliant: one can drive, one can cook. Sorted. And my favourite Little Kid has promised a visit on Friday.
I've been clicking the needles on another baby blanket (boy colours this time). I've been chewing on some sweetie hot dogs we'd been saving for a special occasion, and crunching on some delicious choc chip cookies The (Not So) Small One has provided. Watching her bake is very calming.
I have books and magazines; and I'd like to thank Lea of A Freeze Frame for sending me some new movie suggestions. She knows that when she urged me to watch Moonnrise Kingdom it turned into a new favourite!
Where do you think you might start, if you were confined to one spot? Which book would you pull from the shelf? (or maybe you'd treat yourself to something new?), which magazine would you ask for? which special treat would you hope might appear? Bet there's a layout in that. Or a blog post, or a journal page. Have a think and let me know. Please. I have plenty of time for reading...
...and I've been loving the Me On Monday posts I've seen popping up. Brilliant.
