My back aches

Thing about being allowed to sleep, is that it makes me lazy. That and I don’t have time at 5am to just churn out blog posts. Well, apart from that awesome dream I had, which I had to get up at 3am to write down.

Went shopping today, bought some christmas stuff, stocking fillers for brother. Got Grandma a little digital photoframe for her keyring, she might not be able to see it, but it was cheap, and I will try and find something else for her.

Bought some nice tea too. Ginger root, something else, TurmericĀ and liquorice root, it’s nice… (Oh look, here it is) Been into ginger tea the last few days, bought it to see if it’d help mum with her feeling sick all the time due to a fucked up stomach, which it does seem to do. That and I need something caffine free and hot to drink. Ginger tea does have a nice kick to it. Oh I bought a new bottle of Lavender oil too, the one I got when I got my nose pierced is finally almost gone.

There was a craft fair on in St.Helens, I bought two very pretty rocks but mum is insisting on wrapping them up for christmas, so no pictures. :p

Mum, Grandma, Granddad, Terence, Tera, Chibi, Johnty (For some reason, the “strike” option won’t stick)

I dunno what mum or granddad want for Christmas, I guess I’ll get him some novelty present, those amuse him and I bought mum a bracelet today but I’ll have to get her some other bits too.

Spoke to Grandma earlier, the stroke left her totally blind in one eye, and mostly blind in the other, and screwed up her short-term memory a bit. Doesn’t look like she’ll ever be allowed to drive again, they’ve given her a white stick and everything. Must be rough on her, she hates having downtime. When her first kid was born, she stayed at home for 3 months then went and begged for her job back, she was so bored, and she’s never really changed from that. Now it looks like she’s gonna be stuck at home for good. She sounded depressed on the phone, and is apparently buying me driving lessons for christmas… Wonder how auntie Jenny is coping on her own now she’s worn Grandma out.

Last note, I started, and finished, Nation last night. It was good. You might wanna look into getting hold of a copy of “Island of the Blue Dolphins“, if you liked it. Not sure if it’s still in print or not, but it’s a sort-of similar story.

Nation was interesting though, just from reading it I probably wouldn’t have known it was a Terry Pratchett book, it was better than that. Not that his stuff is bad, but it’s always very jokey and you know everyone’s gonna pull through in the end and everything’s gonna go back to (sort of) normal. This was different I guess. I liked it.

Bought a book today named “Rise of the Iron Moon” by Stephen Hunt, lets see how that fares.
