I spent most of the day at either the old rented house dismantling beds, carrying drawers and boxes from upstairs to downstairs via the very steep and winding staircase or at the new house feeling a bit useless as I did not really know where she wanted things put, but she was too busy herself to tell me and her boyfriend was making the trips between the two houses, only about 5 miles apart, with van loads of furniture and boxes. Most of the work involved was at the old house and by six in the evening I was worn out and Rebecca said that they would be fine with possibly one more van load to go.I walked home, as it is only five minutes, but by the time I got in I felt thoroughly shattered.
Ha ! I thought I felt tired yesterday, I got up this morning and nearly everything ached! My calf muscles are the worst, I think its all the going up and down stairs. I have to keep moving about or I think I might seize up completely.
But there are several bright sides to this story,
1) My daughter and her boyfriend have their very own home,
2)The exercise must have done me some good, and lost me a few of the extra pounds in weight I seem to have started carrying around and
3)I had a message on my answer-phone when I got back to say that I had been shortlisted for the job I had applied for and could I attend an interview!
so on balance a good day was had by all( and I have the weekend to recover).
