Busy makes me tired

Everything has been a bit busy the last six weeks or so. Ever since I came back from my holiday (and everybody else took theirs in turn) work hasn't stopped. It isn't that the construction industry has picked up lots - but maybe a few green shots are showing through. The result is that there is more work than I can fit into my three day week, and I end up doing ten and twelve hour days just to try and keep on top of things. This is all well and good, but it means that by the time I get home I'm too tired for anything much. Add to this my Monday and Friday job (which is essential to balance the books) and I don't get five minutes to myself in the week and then need to spend most of the weekend in bed recovering! The good news is, that apart from the fact that I have to remember my limits and not overdo things and wipe myself out, my MS has been stable the last couple of months. The various drugs continue to do their job and no relapses have occurred. Fingers crossed, touch wood, and all that.

This busy-ness means that I have sadly neglected the blogsphere and means I have been very derelict in posting this lovely award from Herrad. Herrad kept the original text from Celeste and so have I.


Moonlight in this case represents the glorious brain-sharpening, mood-enhancing experience one feels when reading or seeing something inspirational in other blogs. Something that sets the tone for the rest of your day, puts a smile on your face, stimulates your work, or makes you feels awesome about life. It is not often one feels wonderful. But some days, some blogs do just that. I want to give “moonlights” to all the special blogs I encounter. There are no obligations attached to the recognition. But if you feel like it, you can pass it on to whoever has also given you that something special, what in Spanish they call “eso”, or “it”. Whatever “it” is that lifts your spirits and helps you to up your mental game.
