ten

Not coping terribly well at the moment - upping the escitalopram has given me an expected wobble whilst my brain chemistry rebalances. Some rocking, some sobbing, blah blah blah ... all boring stuff. I am spending as much time outside as possible; luckily it's been very sunny.

In summary:

1. Chickens shagging - check! (Yay!)
2. Eggs hatching in borrowed incubator two days earlier than expected - 8 (Yay!)
3. Eggs doing something peculiar in my own, thermostatically incompetent, incubator - 42 (Boo! Hiss!)
4. Wonderful husbands - 1 (Yay!)
5. Barking Mother's In Law - 1 (Round Two The Sequel has taken place in the last forty eight hours - Boo! Hiss!)
6. Broody boxes constructed - .999 (Yay!)
7. Toddler tantrums - infinite (Boo! Hiss! Screech!)
8. Cats having thyroid gland removed tomorrow - 1 (Both Boo! Hiss! AND Yay! as we have finally worked out what is making her poorly and it's quite easy to fix by taking the over-active gland out of her neck)
9. Exhausts that have dropped off car during past week - 1 (Boo! Hiss!)
10. Visits to Ma's in coming week to talk to planners - 1 (Yay! On all counts)

Early nights are where it's at at the moment ... I go a bit bonkers in the evenings otherwise. So for now, that is all.

  1. Hi ally, this is a much gentler post - hope the pills and early nights are helping. You won't get a suntan with your head in a bag, now will you? Or, is it just me who is missing a suntan, due to the shite weather we had last summer. I do think this has a bearing on our emotional health during the winter, and into the Spring.
    The boring stuff will get done at some point, and it sounds like you are getting some exciting stuff done as well. Yay!

  3. That post made me laugh - thank you.

    And your blog name reminded me of a misheard comment Simon made yesterday - he actually said - "The herbs have really bucked up" referring to our recently planted herb bed. But as a chicken was standing there as well and the wind was blowing I managed to transpose herbs into birds and bucked into .... > I stared at the poor chicken and wondered what on earth she had done wrong!!
