Well, the footy boys have a rest day today, which I know comes as a relief to both the players and spectators. After a good win in their first game yesterday, they had a narrow loss in their afternoon match. There were a few concussions and some very sore bodies, so I know having a day off today will be very welcome. Many of the boys have also just finished playing in the school First IV rugby union team, and I'm sure that fatigue has definitely set in. Thanks so much to everyone for the support, I know if the boys had time to read your comments they'd be thrilled!


So today, I was planning to catch up on some long-overdue housework, and getting stuck into some more painting for my upcoming webstore (more on that soon!) But that won't be happening, as I'm taking my youngest daughter back to the doctor for the third time this month. She's been suffering with terrible migraines, and we're having very little luck getting them under control. This is something that no-one in our family has any experience with, and unfortunately it's proving hard to find the right treatment. At fourteen, it's been really difficult for her to try to cope with school, sport and friends, while suffering with debilitating headaches. So fingers crossed, we find a solution and get her back to her normal, happy and pain-free self really soon.

Somewhere, in amongst all the happenings in the family, I'm trying to find the time to do all the things that need to be done - to be a mum, wife, and run a business. Of course, some things have fallen by the wayside, and the house looks like a bomb site! But, in the whole scheme of things, the housework is so unimportant, and I'm focusing on looking after my family first. So, I do apologise for my absence at the moment, I can assure you that I am reading each and every one of your wonderful comments, and I really appreciate that you take the time out of your busy day to visit my blog. I know I'm not alone, we all have our own juggling acts to perform, so thanks to each and every one of you.

On a positive note, my bff Bill toiled away tirelessly yesterday, to finish my ceiling. It was so nice to come home to see it looking all pretty and white. As soon as I get the time, I'll take some pics of the finished product. And as I can't possibly post without including some pretty pictures, here are a few, just because they're beautiful!

Sorry for the long post, but that is my life at the moment. And if anyone out there has any experience with migraines, or some advice on what's worked for them, I'd be really grateful. I'm happy to try anything if it will help.


Have a great day everyone,
