Hiatus; not Haiti, nor Hawaii - Burbling
Winter's bit. Snow over large chunks of New South Wales. Cold winds & rain here.
Did get, with MWS's help, a bunch done at Chris' place, but had a terrible abdominal muscular spasm after we got back to my place, so that I had to take a painkiller & prop myself up in the corner — they get worse if I lie down. Fell asleep (still upright) after the painkiller cut in, so didn't help M cut down the stuff in the yard.
Tonight there was a blackout for a couple of hours over our whole suburb, streetlights 'n' all. Was able to heat soup on the gas stove, use torches, lamps & a glass-enclosed candle for light so we could find our way about & rugs to keep mother wrapped up & warm. Took risk to put computer on to catch up on email & suchlike that I'd been too busy on weekend to check.
Lots of things to say & think, but no energy at the moment to put them down. Hovering on the cusp of tears several times yesterday & today, but not going down quite as much as before. A couple of weeks away from Chris' birthday.
Work tomorrow & wrapping mother up warmly to go out to her day centre. Sounds like fun.
