At the car wash (yeah!)


I actually left the house today! Although the exhaustion isn’t ceasing, we managed to fill up the car, take it to the hand car-wash and pick up some fish ‘n’ chips (Haddock). I’m unable to cook or bake at the moment, so it’s up to John or sandwiches.

I took some selfies of the dogs and me, as well as pics of them and their pup-dad.












Finally home, eating our fish and chips. I couldn’t be bothered to change into my ‘house clogs’. I love these ankle boots from Doc Marten with the tattoos, except I don’t like the knuckle-duster motif.

I slept nine hours last night, six hours after getting home and I am still exhausted. This is the world of chronic illness.

Still, I have much to be grateful for.

About Oscar Dandelion

Hi, I'm Faith McCord, writer of the Oscar Dandelion books. I love reading, writing, watching films, looking at architecture and general design, embroidery (especially Elizabethan), spending time with my family. I used to enjoy long walks, bodybuilding, going out, however, since my injury my mobility is seriously impaired, so I'm more of a home-body now. I'm interested in meeting other indie / pro writers, so do say 'Hello' ! :)

      • Sounds like a great project 🙂
        Little and often. Mine is also by the computer to work on. I put the gloves and the sewing materials in two plastic envelopes to keep it clean. With 7 small dogs there’s a bit of mess, lol!

      • Well, Sue, the blanket will be done when it will be done 😉
        It’s nice that your dad is taking an interest in it. My dad, when he was here was very critical of me, except he was always interested in my crafting. I miss showing him what I make.
        I love dogs – how could someone guess?! – and I can’t imagine a life without them. I just wish I had more mobility, less pain and more energy…sigh. xox

  5. Sounds like a full day! Good to see Doc Martins bought back the yellow stitching. I haven’t worn mine for about 10 years. Due to not being AFO-friendly. I don’t see knuckle-dusters. I see Crowns?
