A Bit Of A Wobble!!!

It has always been my wish that both hubby and DD left the house at the same time in the morning and returned at the same time each night giving me a free day to get all of the house jobs done with nobody under my feet.
So today hubby has had to change from his afternoon shift to a day shift as he is on a safety training day.
I came down to an empty house, the dog had crapped and pee'd on the kitchen floor and I just sat and bawled for half an hour. I think it hit me that this time next week hubby won't be here either and I won't be expecting him home at 4pm as I am today.
In fact I won't know when to expect him home as nobody can give us even an inkling of how long he will be in hospital.....anything from three days to two weeks depending on his progress after the operation.
They do careful what you wish for.

No Ruby visit to look forward to this week as both she and Marlowe have bad colds and we are trying as best as we can to avoid Mr Tea Towel catching anything which might delay his op.
I will be desperate for her kisses and cuddles when she is better.

So......I have the house to myself for several hours.
Am I being a domestic goddess? Am I heck as like.
There is no domestic mojo coursing through my veins this morning. All I have done is wash pots and put some chicken in a marinade to have with some salad for tea......what a useless article I am to be sure.
I do need to move shortly though as there is washing to go in the dryer. I'm not chancing it outside today as it's looking very murky out there and there's not much of a breeze.

I've just realised I am cold so I think I'll go and fire up the kettle for a coffee before I empty the washer.

Bye for now.....and thanks for visiting today.


  1. Dear Sheila,

    No doubt the dog was pleased to see you even if you did have to clean the mess up right away. Life is difficult sometimes isn't it? I remind myself this will pass and in the big scheme of things doesn't matter.

    It is hard not to worry isn't it? My other half is having a procedure scheduled in outpatient this Friday and I have concerns and pray all goes well and God gives me strength during this difficult time.

    I hope you have had a warming cup of tea/coffee and feel better. Hugs and prayers for you and your dear hubby. Take care.


  2. Thank you Sandy.
    I'm not normally a crier but I do have to admit to being very worried at the moment.
    I hope all goes well for your hubby on Friday-x-

  3. Sometimes things get overwhelming and we end up needing a good cry. Hope all goes well with hubby and he'll be home in no time!

  4. Sending you a hug and hoping that you feel better after having a good cry. Know that you are in my prayers. Take care.

  5. Much love Sheila. Sometimes we just have to let it out and it can be the smallest of things that triggers it. I hope you felt a little better for your cup of coffee and have been able to take some time for yourself today instead of tackling the domestic chores. Just know that I am thinking of you all. X

  6. A good cry is a good thing except it leaves you with red eyes and a stuffed up nose! Or is that just me?
    Hope all goes well and he'll be home PDQ
    have a quick ((Hug)) from Suffolk

  7. Aww Sheila xxx you cannot be chipper all the time. Sometimes you just need to wallow. You have my utter empathy xxx

  8. Awww...doggie didn't mean to have an accident. A good cry lets out the bad stuff. This time will pass, you will cope. x

  9. Sheila, I hope your day improved and sending you warm thoughts from Florida.
