A Sleepy morning

Well, I went to bed late last night, was so tired. I think it was 11 when I finally quit being on my phone and turned over to go to sleep.

I woke again at about 3 AM. I did get up then, but I only stayed up for about 40 minutes. Tiredness overtook me and I went back to bed, and surprise surprise, I actually slept.

Didnt wake again until 8:40! I couldn’t believe it! We all slept in late as my parents only got up at 9 AM! That’s very unusual for them, normally they are always up by 8 AM.

Now I’m sipping tea, and snuggling with Nitro, he’s being so cute, coming over to the bed where I’m sitting with my laptop, and burying his head in my arm. What a cute boy he is!

My friend pat called

Pat, who is my friend from Dublin just called. He is blind, and he lives on his own. He had some underlying health issues, like type one diabetes, and he’s had a kidney transplant, and he has problems with his lungs.
His brother was tested for coronavirus earlier this week, he called me tonight, pat did, and told me his brother got the all clear, he doesn’t have it, but now there is a chance that his 8 year old child may have it. It never rains but it pours!
We had a nice catch up. And he said I am like his unofficial girlfriend! Lol! He was kidding of course. He knows I have a girlfriend, and that I am gay. He jokes around a lot, and we’re really good friends, so I don’t mind when he says things like that to me, I know its just how he is.
We said we’d call one another more often, now that Irelands gone into lockdown, and we can maybe keep each other sane and company.
I’m all for that!
Good friends are so important during this tough time! I firmly believe that!

Doing some self care

I did some self care stuff this afternoon. Now I feel so good and am glad I took time to myself!
I took advantage of having a bath at my parents house, and I took a nice, long bubble bath!
It was amazing! The water was so warm and I was able to totally relax in it. My muscles are feeling the benefits of it now!
Then I ate a nice dinner with my mom. We had steak, mashed potatos and broccoli and cauliflower mix. It was scrumptious. I put piri piri sauce on my steak and on my potatos, because I am totally addicted to it hahaha!
Now I think I’ll read for a while. I am reading a murder mystery by joanne fluke, its the first book in the Hannah swensen series, a chocolate chip cookie murder and its so good!
Have you done any self care today? Do share about it with me!
❤ 😀 xoxo
