It's a working from home day today. F is looking a bit harassed again, so I have stayed out of her way. Our dining room table looks like an unnatural disaster - paper, sewing, bike parts, a paint brush, coffee cups and empty food bowls....and the computer and phones and wires and all that stuff.
Someone upstairs has their TV turned WAY up and we can hear what sounds like the music on kids TV programmes. One of F's colleagues had to be taken into hospital today - she had been complaining of backache at work last week and this morning was on her way to hospital immediately she got up from her bed. Now she is on intravenous antibiotics. It's kind of scary how a fit healthy person can suddenly fall off their perch - she was meant to be running a marathon in Edinburgh this coming weekend. The poor girl will, once she gets over the shock of being so seriously ill, be lamenting months of wasted training.
What a downer!
We are grateful for good health, plenty of food in the fridge, a comfortable home, friends to call on, and the nature experiences that we can find just across the road. Life is a mix of things and the best we could wish for is good balance. We hope you are all having a well balanced day too.
