I have spent all morning pricing up, posting, labelling, weighing the yarn I am selling on EBAY. It really takes some effort but it pleases me to be doing it, knowing it is going to a good home where it will be used.

I am not swimming today nor tomorrow. I did swim yesterday and was surprised to find I got sore and fatigued quickly so did not complete. I was surprised because after the show on Wednesday, I slept 11 hours, did nothing at Thursday, slept again in the arvo and then went to bed. I would have thought that would have been plenty of rest. Aparrently not!

I am now thinking that my swim days will be Monday to Friday and I will leave weekends for my break. Even if I do mid week dog shows and miss swimming, I still will not go at the weekend.

Yesterday, I was called to be asked if I would go to Bedford Church to serve. I said no. I was ratehr surprised at that. Taking care of myself! Oooh, whatever next.

I had a client on Friday, soemthing I don't often do. The sitting went very well. I felt terribly sad for my sitter. He was gay, in the closet, and his partner of 48 years had died of cancer and he wa sall alone in terrible pain with no one to share it with because it was a secret. How truly awful.

THIS is what homophobia does to people. Shame on the homophobes and religious bigots. They will reap what they sow.

HAHAHAHA ! Excellent:)!!
So sorry about your client - thank goodness you could be a sympathetic ear for him!
Take care,

You and I both know physical pain and psychic pain can be overwhelming. My heart aches for this poor man - what a world we live in where not only could he enjoy the partnership publicly but can't even mourn his loss with anyone's compassion but yours. At least you could give him that.

I do have a big problem being civil to homophobes. They really do have a surprised expression when I tell them why I'm not inclined to interact with them.

AND, I'm most happy you're taking care of yourself.

How sad it is that people are not allowed to be who and what they are. We will accept people who are mean and cruel, but will not allow people to love one another. Melinda Allen
