Feeling Blue...

blogged by me domestic goddess On 7/18/2006 04:17:00 PM
Do you ever have those days when you feel like the world is against you?
The last few days has definitely been mine. I feel like every thing I have put my heart and soul in is being picked on by someone bigger and leaving me in the shadows. A good heart to heart with a best friend and a colleague who is much more a friend , helped my put some of my business worries into perspective, and hopefully with a little planning, my ideas, I should hopefully get back on track.
Last night I had a phone call I have been dreading. My Dad's nursing home ran at 8.30 pm asking me to come in straight away. My poor Dad looked helpless and very poorly. He was taken into hospital last night with me right by his side, and I got home at 2am. This morning I visited Dad and he is off the oxygen and looking better if not still week and frail. My darling Lilly came with me and brighten my Dads day. I am off again as soon as Peter gets back from work.
I have lost all my creativity and mojo at the moment, and need my friends around me. It is times like this that I miss Newcastle.
But I must put on a brave face and a stiff upper lip like us English feel we should and soldier on, LOL

    Hi Anna,

    Sorry to hear your Dad is poorly, how lucky he is to have you to go with him to hospital and to bring Lilly to see him and cheer him up.

    As for having a rough few days yourself, we all have them sweetie, indulge yourself with a few treats then dust yourself down and get back up again - it's usually all you can do.

    Take care, thinking of you and your Dad.

    Mel x

    PS Love the blog header - Anam is one clever lady :)

    Sorry Anna. It's very pooey when parents are poorly (been there, done that, etc.). I got through it by cuddling my family and thinking about 'poorly parent' and not much else. Sod work and all the rest of it. It can wait.
