Spoon theory

Have you heard or read about spoon theory? I found this article really helpful in explaining myself to Lovely Husband. I think I should download the PDF and give it to people when I have few spoons left. I don’t have to refer to it so much with Lovely Husband anymore because he just knows; he’s learning to read me.

Please let me know if you think it’s helpful or if you’d adapted it in some way that better suits you.

I definitely recognise this in myself! It’s an ‘app’ I’d really like to uninstall 🙂

Counting the Ways

Recently Laina posted about her Jukebox App which is firmly installed in her brain. I, too, have a Jukebox App. Sadly, I have very little control over it. Something is playing most of the time, but not because I have requested it. It gets triggered by something I read, or something I hear. Sometimes the connection is obvious, like when a song is mentioned it will play that song, or when an artist is mentioned, it will play something by that artist.

Thanks Susanne 🙂

Domino Effect.

A break in routine should not be a big deal. Little did I expect the domino effect it would create. Given the strenuous nature of the activity I should have had some inkling.

I was the last of 85 cyclists to leave camp that morning. In hindsight I should have left later. Being the last rider did not concern me as we were scheduled to meet at the 120 km point in the century ride for a photo op. The midpoint was a milestone, an occasion not to be overlooked. It had been 3490 km since we had dipped our tires in the Pacific Ocean, with 3490 km to go before we would dip our tires in the Atlantic Ocean.

I arrived at the midpoint with a little over an hour to spare. I was a great opportunity to take in a nap… well, more to…

This is my first post using WordPress, I’ve just moved here from blogger where I was known by the same name.

I’ll be back soon but in the meantime I need to find my way around my new home.

Thanks for visiting and I’ll see you later, bye.
