Long journey,late night.

I have been to bed and had to get back up again,lot's of aches and pains stopping me from sleeping.

Milly has been brighter today and after the plumber came first thing 11.00!!!(His first thing and my first thing differ somewhat.If I had known his first thing was nearly lunch time I would not have leapt out of bed, out of a deep sleep at 8.30 with that horrible feeling I used to get when late for work, to rapidly throw some clothes on and use the bathroom before he arrived!!!!)we travelled to my Mum and Dads around 40 Min's away then on to my sisters a further 30 Min's.I don't normally travel this far as it always has a negative physical effect, hence the reason I am up blogging at what for me is unheard of 12.00.It has to be said the fact that Emily had earache again and has been tossing and turning as well until 10.45 did have something to do with me not being able to sleep.She is now snoring away and I am sitting here with a glass of wine( first one for many weeks) browsing and blogging.

She has been a little star today and I realised ( not for the first time) how much better she is in a family setting when there are fewer people,I felt she managed to let them see the Emily we see instead of the clingy child who rolls around and seeks attention negatively.She really shone and spent time feeding some lambs with my sister and then offered to set the table for tea.Pity we haven't got lambs to feed if that is what it takes to set the table willingly;-)We had a lovely tea and a good chat.Sad though, my sister has fostered two donkeys for many years and one of them Strudel,has a major liver problem so today may be the last time we see her.Fingers crossed she pulls through....

i can't stand to be in the car for long either. it makes me achy and irritable.

I'm constantly trying to reduce our car usage - it's just that the people I like to see the most all live a considerable distance from us.

Glad the day went well for you. Hoping Strudel isn't suffering too much.
