I'm knackered. There's been a lot going on the past few weeks - what with the problems with my mother, which are ongoing and long term, and a few other things. When I'm stressed or under pressure, it's always my sleep and my guts that suffer, I have IBS and it's giving me hell at the mo. All this week I've been awake for 2, 3 or 4 hours during the night, which is affecting everything and now I feel like a total zombie.
We're going away for a few days and I just cannot wait, it will be so nice to get away from everything, not have to do any cooking or housework, shut off my brain and just go with the flow.
Then I can come back feeling like myself again and get on with helping OH get the last crops in, making jam and chutney, sorting out the freezers and start making lists and menu plans. I plan to spend as little as possible in the next few weeks, we are going to be doing minimal shopping and eating out of the freezers/store cupboard. Our Big Master Plan has gone out of the window a bit lately, we need to get back on it. OH's retirement is getting ever nearer and we need to be fully prepared for that.
