things i'm loving . . . 'lazy days at home'
Sick of my carpal tunnel issues yet?? I am, why did i wait 8 years for it to be THIS bad. A new low today, my hands have swollen & i can't wear my wedding bands, sigh, they are on my pinkie, it's just not the same. I've never suffered swelling, even 9 months pregnant with twins in tropical Summer!! Um, it even hurts my hands to turn the pages of magazines, yes, Princess Precious!! I'll see the surgeon soon & then book surgery, thank goodness for private health insurance & speedy waiting lists.
So this week Things I'm Loving with PaisleyJade is to really step back & rest my hands, with some quality magazines, turning pages with my left hand (i'm right handed, my right is worse). This lambie is pictured on a lush Christmas Tree farm in Tasmania, of course!!
I even bought Little One magazine, despite an article on horse face Catriona Rowntree.
Sometimes dinner comes in a frozen box via the oven, not often, my children don't like plastic food, but this calamari, spring roll & beer battered fish combo saved me mid week.
I'm forcing my love of dill & coriander on the children & they can't say there wasn't anything green on the platter??!!
Chocolate money is not a tradition from my childhood but they remind my husband of his late mummy. How cool they now make Australian currency & notes!!
The agaves are flourishing in their new leaky champagne barrel, perfect!!
So as i'm sorting through Christmas lists & parcels to Afghanistan, i'm taking care of myself too. Love Posie
