Project Life: Week 38

Hi everyone :)

Well it’s been a pretty tough week for me.  As most of you know I injured my back last Tuesday and everything was slowly coming right thanks to my lovely chiropractor Nicola… BUT (and it is a BIG BUT!) on Tuesday morning I woke up and SNEEZED! 

Instantly I was in incredible pain and it turns out I’ve done plenty of damage to my lower back.  I’ve been going to the chiropractor every day and now I’m able to stand up relatively ok and I can lie down kind of ok… but I can’t sit down at all! 

This week it’s been a challenge to stay positive at times but I’m finding Project Life quite helpful in that area so on with the week:Full_1

On Monday it was Sonny’s birthday.  He’s a lovely kid and I took him and one of his friends to McDonalds for lunch.  Sonny was thrilled to bits and it was nice to do something for his special day.

Good things do come back to you though and when a friend turned up with McDonalds for breakfast the other morning I felt really lucky :)

Here’s a close up at the start of my week:Left_1

The blossoms on the tree outside my door are absolutely gorgeous… and a perfect pick-me-up in the morning. 

I also got a lovely surprise on Thursday when Krystal came home for the day.  She helped me out and kept me company… and Mr Toby loved seeing his big sister again!

To celebrate Krystal’s visit Toby decided to ‘entertain’ her by doing ‘unmentionable things’ (nudge nudge wink wink!)  Krystal was instantly appalled at his behaviour but she just couldn’t stop laughing.  She ended up with tears running down her face from laughing so much. 

Krystal also kept checking on Toby’s ‘progress’ which just seemed to egg him on!  I guess I’ve gotten a bit more used to his once-a-week habit but her reaction was priceless!

Here’s the second part of my week:Right_1

Mikayla helped me out by hanging out all the washing on Saturday since I couldn’t do it.  She’s not a morning person so her help was doubly appreciated!

It was so beautiful yesterday… lovely and sunny and warm so Toby and I went out onto the deck.  He saw me with the camera and instantly started to chase his tennis ball, pounce on his shadow and do other funny things to entertain me.  That boy is such a Drama King and he LOVES the camera!

Last night I really wanted to see the final of Masterchef as I’ve watched every single episode.  The only problem was that I couldn’t sit down to watch it so when I got a visitor I asked them to please bring my mattress down to the lounge for me… and thankfully there were plugs handy for my electric blanket too!

Toby and I had a very comfortable night in front of the fire which was great… and as for the final… well done Andy!  It was pretty exciting to watch.

Here’s my little piece of creativity this week:Creativity_1

This week I’ve done a digital piece as I’ve got the laptop on the kitchen bench which is the perfect height for me to stand at to work.  It’s just a little reminder to myself to keep thinking ‘happy thoughts’.

Before I go I just want to wish Miss Loreen and Miss Brenda both a happy birthday for today! 


Hope both of you are having a wonderful day and getting spoilt :)

I hope you all have a great week and hopefully I’ll be back on Wednesday with a long overdue Log your Memory update.

Take care xxx
