Just up again....

..... Just had a 2 hour nappette!

Weird morning. Utterly weird in many ways.

I was up at 0545 as usual, and by 0630 I was sat down to mark with the dishwasher on, the washing machine on, the tumbledrier on, the bread machine on, the dining room table cleared, the animals all fed, and life was good.

I marked for a couple of hours, and R got up. At this point I had cooled down from being tucked up in bed, and discovered I couldn't move my shoulder. It wasn't painful unless I put any stress on the muscle, but it couldn't be moved. I had just dragged a t-shirt and joggers on when I got up, as I don't like to wake R up that early by having a shower. As he was up, I thought well, I would get on and have my shower as we needed to go to town, get a few things done.

It was an utter comedy!

I had to have R help me undress.
He had to wash my hair, rinse it and condition it, rinse it again.
I couldn't wash my own back, or anything else really!
He had to dry me, and then help me get dressed.

It was funny in so many ways, except that laughing hurts lol! The Ibuprofen is great but has upset my stomach but if I don't take it then the muscle will struggle to come out of spasm. We could be in for a few days of this! (R says he doesn't mind lol - he certainly seemed to be enjoying himself lol ;-) )

We went to town, which was fine, and then SUDDENLY it was heaving, so we left. There's a couple of things we need to get tomorrow, but that's ok, we'll go in when it's quieter tomorrow and sort them out. There's a couple of things that will have to wait until later in the week, but they can wait, no big deal.

More weirdness came when we were accosted in town by the Red Cross people, wanting us to do direct debit things, which was amusing as R went into play against that particularly patronsing young man, RC man saying what the RC did, and R saying "No you don't, what you actually do is x,y,z."

And on the way out of town, we were accosted by a matched pair of young Elders from the church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints. Who were surprised to find someone who knew the history of the Book of Mormon, and had read some of it, and thought it was barking, and wasn't afraid to say so. R sat down and waited whilst we discussed the facts of the matter, and then they tried to rope him in by asking if he believed in God, he told them that he believed in lots of Gods, and was Pagan, so they asked me if I felt the same way, and I said no, I was a Methodist, but religious freedom and freedom of speech was a vital part of what was happening in the world and suppression of the same was against God's will. They asked what we knew about the Mormons, and R explained he was still married to one, but she was in the States!

And then they went.

They were very nice, but they are barking, IMHO, just like the Jehovah's Witnesses, who I studied with for 2.5 years on a Thursday evening, and came to the conclusion that they are just wrong about so many things.

Ah well.

Must get on and do some things. Like have a cup of tea, except I've given it up for Lent. So I'll make him a cup of tea, and get myself a drink of something, and look at the washing machine and see what needs doing there, and then start on the marking again.

Life is good!
