I decided to do something a little different today. On the 14th of January I took a photo of everything I did during the day and this is the result. Before I get any comments about it; yes I have a very boring life, I would do more if I could but someone needs to find a cure for CFS first.
I wake up around 9, look out my window to see it has snowed overnight. Which basically means I will not be getting out of bed any time soon.
I finally get up. Tea and a banana for breakfast while I watch some youtube videos. Checked the mailbox to see I have two books in for review. Written in the Blood by Stephen Lloyd Jones and Smiler’s Fair by Rebecca Levene. I was really surprised to get a copy of Smiler’s Fair, I requested it over a month ago.
I decide to take the puppies outside so they can have a run about. It was still snowing a little bit but the dogs didn’t care.
This was Alfie’s first time in the snow, he was a little bit hyper. Even though he has a short coat he didn’t care that it was freezing cold.
I finally sit down to work on todays blog post. I try to write posts a week in advanced but got a little behind from my CFS not liking bad weather. I’m not sure of exactly what I want to write about, I have a few photos and a vague idea. I prefer to do a first draft of my posts in a notebook before I open Wordpress. The post comes together quickly and soon enough I have it typed up and scheduled.
Lunch today is a ham and cheese toastie (on the tiniest slice of bread I’ve ever seen), tea (Twinings Everyday) and more YouTube videos.
Mum asked me to make some shortbread. I love shortbread and it literally only takes 5 minutes to mix everything together. If you want the recipe it can be found here: Chunky Shortbread Recipe.
While the shortbread is in the oven I take photos for Sunday’s post. My set-up may look ridiculous but it was cheap and it works.
Another cup of tea while I work on my review of Alice and the Fly. This is the last thing I have to do today which is good timing as I’m just starting to get tired.
I take amitriptyline every night to help me sleep. The funny thing about having a chronic tiredness problem is it also causes really bad insomnia.
Bath time. Today I am using my sisters mango and papaya bubble bath.
I do some more replying to comments and checking emails, then I get started on The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman.
