Monday Magic – Inspiring Blogs for You!

Good evening!  It has been a busy day here, what with scheduling for Chronic Illness Bloggers, checking out a friend’s vicar mate to be our quiz master, trying to get on track with Chronic Pain queries on Scope…and passing out in the heat.  Hence I am only finishing this post tonight.

Monday Magic 16th July

 

One son has just returned from the Ukraine and a dose of radiation on a trip around Chernobyl (they found it fascinating and the photos show a strange dystopian type of vacant world), and now the other is about to jet off to a music festival in Barcelona.  Dad’s cab is getting very good a early morning airport runs!  We have 2 extra young men coming back to sleep on our sofas tonight before they are deposited at the airport for 7.30 flights tomorrow morning.  “Where are you staying when you get there?”  “We’re camping” “But you hate camping!  Do you have a tent?” “No, we’ve got a few hours when we get to Barcelona so we’ll get something then”!!  Nothing like being prepared.  The lovely girl is slightly better prepared for her trip to Greece next weekend as she orders shorts and bikini and has already checked in.  I mustn’t forget Mum & Dad either who have just returned from a cruise in France – Paris to Normandy, where they witnessed the jubilation at the World Cup semi final win, narrowly missing the actual final – or my sister in law and nephew, currently in Turkey.  Now I wonder where hubby might take me?

Those of you who read my post at the end of last week will know that a pain flare in the current UK heatwave has been causing me some grief and I haven’t managed as much reading as I would ordinarily.  But, I have managed to find some posts from some different bloggers and I hope you enjoy them as much as me.  Mascara warning for Hello My Name is Grief.

Sit down, grab a cuppa or a wine glass and get ready to read some great posts!
