Quick catch up

Having two days not having to do anything has been just what I needed. I got up to see to Beauty both mornings so Al could have a lie in, but after that he took over and I just had to relax. I have had detox days before when I make and drink fresh juices but I found it really hard this time not so much in the detox effects but the lack of food!!!.
I enjoyed a wonderful hour and a half on Thursday afternoon courtesy of a lady called Reswana. I had reflexology then a full body massage with some bits of Bowen technique to help with my lower back pain.I have never felt so relaxed for ages and will have to try to find funds from somewhere to go more regularly.

Whilst I was in the clinic Alan and Emily had decided to take Beauty to the park as she had behaved so well last time he had taken her.This time however she was a nightmare barking and growling at every dog in sight.To be fair they did let her off at one point when they thought there were no other dogs around but she spotted one and went haring off but did come back when called, took her some time but at least she came back!!! I think the difference was that she had been left in the car for a short time while they had done some shopping and that must have got her wound up and would account for her behaviour.So still some way to go before we can fully enjoy the walks in the park.We will just have to keep going for short walks there and get her confidence up.

The rest of the day I rested and snoozed.Yesterday Al and Emily went off around 10am and I got to watch some daytime TV and generally just veg out!!! I snoozed for a couple of hours in the afternoon whilst Al and Emily played. By 6.00 I was starving and was glad to have some real food and then when Emily came home from her friends we read and then had an early night and I slept some more!!!

Today has been a cleaning day for us all and Emily and I tackled upstairs and managed to get her room done together without falling out!! She said she loves having a tidy room it's just the process of getting one that she doesn't like!!

After a quick lunch we went to see The Water Horse
Loved the Movie, it had stunning scenery and the story told by an old man in a pub was magical.
It had some predictable elements to it and if you liked ET I would guess you would enjoy this but overall it had us hooked, the acting was good and the Water horse was wonderfully created.

Back home and Milly watched some TV and I set about preparing turkey escalopes done in Parmesan breadcrumbs and a creme fraiche and sweet chili sauce on the side, with baby baked pots , spinach , broccoli .Milly had everything bar the spinach and sauce so we have another thing she will eat, must ensure not to make it too often though or it will end up on the "hated" list..

Today I have started off well with breakfast and lunch being very healthy and had a couple of juices as well. I had some M and M's at the cinema and could probably have had less at tea time but overall I have done well and will build on that over the coming weeks.That's the plan any how!!!!

"managed to get her room done together without falling out!!"

Wow! Clo also loves having a tidy room and plays in there more when I've tidied it but is no good (like her father) at tidying up after herself. If she "helps" me she gets distracted by discovering things as she's tidying and gets diverted then I get frustrated and we fall out. So now I tend to blitz it on my own and "filter" stuff at the same time. She knows about the filtering as I've told her that's what I do and isn't happy about it - but not unhappy enough to keep things tidy herself. Also she rarely notices what I've filtered out. Today it was an empty Glenmorangie box and sheet upon sheet of a home made puzzle that she'd photocopied.

This is uncanny, the routine could be any time we do the room together.I wonder how many more households have exactly the same situation!!
I usually find it easier to tidy by myself as well and was surprised when we got through it without incident.......
