My perfect wine glass!
Good morning dear Reader.....Yes, I have done it again.....I had far too much to drink yesterday and now I am paying for it......See the glass in the photo? ( A friend posted this on FB not so long ago...she knows me so well!) Yes, well that's what I was drinking from yesterday! Only kidding! A funnel would have been better!
You see, my husband and I decided that we would have a day at home doing things that needed doing around the house and also frame and hang some of my artwork for an event that I have planned soon......We were having a great time and around 2pm I decided that a wine would be nice to have.....just one! Yeh right! We are talking about me, the lush! One wine? As if! More like one bottle at a time......We achieved so much yesterday afternoon and we stood back to admire our handiwork about 6 pm and I cooked tea, a beautiful tender juicy T-Bone, and I realised that there were two empty bottles sitting on the sideboard.....Oh dear! Only one had been full, but still.......I did feel slightly fuzzy in the head!
So I haven't sleep properly all night! I drifted off into a light sleep around 6 am and awoke at 7.20 am with a mouth like the bottom of a cockies cage again. My breathe, so powerful that it could melt steel, was so bad that even the puppies wouldn't give me a cuddle. I felt bilious and as I got out of bed I had a wobble....My balance disappeared somewhere during the night.....I walk on a lean! Is that even possible? I am wondering when I am ever going to learn not to indulge. Of course, I blame my husband....It's his fault only I can't think of a good reason to blame him at the moment because my brain has gone into "Befuddled Brain" mode....remember from my blog 7/2/13, "Ah! The Memories". I hate Befuddled Brain mode......I can't think straight and I do so like to have a clear brain......All I want to do at the moment is crawl into a big dark hole and die!....I am an idiot......
One thing I have noticed though, in my befuddled state, is the time seems to be standing still, or at least going very slowly......Normally by this time of the day, it's 9.27 am, I have done my hour in the gym, walked and run the puppies, fed them, fed myself, cleaned up, messaged my bestest friend in the world, written my blog and had my shower.....The time goes so fast that I sometimes I seem to be rushing around like the chook with it's head cut off......Today time has stood still.....Is it because I am not capable of moving fast? Is it only because my brain is befuddled? Maybe I should take a lesson from this.....I need to slow down in order to appreciate my day more! Maybe this particular hangover has taught me more than, "give up the grog woman!"
Maybe I should just coast along and enjoy my day more and not try to squeeze as much as possible into my mornings, as I do now......I don't stress about time as I used to anymore, but, I am still a freak for a structured day.....I have to have order and when I don't have that order I feel that my day is wasted somehow! What rubbish! I am retired! I am an artist! I am a wife and mum and soon I will be a grandma! I love drawing, writing and cooking and I even love having the house looking beautiful and smelling wonderful. I love getting out into the garden whenever I feel I want to.......I love that I can visit my friends whenever I feel like it.....I love that they can come over here for a cuppa during the day if they feel like it! I love that my No.2 son can just ring me and ask me to do some work in his office whenever I would like to go around......I love that he can leave his beautiful Standard Poodle with me when he goes away and not have to worry about leaving her with strangers......I really need to sit back and take notice of this day! I thought that I was living the life, but I think that although I am, I have not been living it in the correct way.....I love my life but, I am not getting the most from it.....I appreciate that there is beauty and love in my life but, I need to really think about it and how it makes me feel....This hangover has been the best thing to happen to me for a long time.....
Oh dear, I am getting too deep even for myself....My puppies are lying at my feet and sleeping....the minute I move they will wake and follow me.....I need to appreciate the love and adoration that they have for me more, as our pets are not with us forever and we should cherish every single moment.....I am not buying any more wine for a while and I am going to put into practice my ravings from this blog and from now on only drink in all that is in "my day"...........
Hi, At 59 I am just finding my feet in the world...So exciting! I have learnt a lot over the years.....gone from being extremely hard up to living a very comfortable life and loving every single minute of it.......My boys are grown up and living good lives themselves and I am so proud of them.......I have the best husband in the world (most of the time anyway....hahaha) and I have 3 dogs who I just adore and they adore me...... I try to live by my motto ......"Be like the sun....let your warmth shine through always"
