Take Twice A Day. (if not more)

Hello Everybody,

Are you all well? I do hope so.
Thanks for all yor wonderful comments about my story of the table. It's very encouraging.
I have been very busy trying to sort the house.
I do say trying as so far I have managed to make it worse that when I started, seriously!!!!!!!

We have lived here since 1996 and I am beginning to think that I never once sorted out ANYTHING. It seems to me that over the years we have just shoe horned more and more crap into this teeny tiny house. Where did all this junk come from.

Moving house will actually be a great way of pairing everything down. I use to be a minimalist and was well organised. So much so that my friends referred to me as Monica, from friends and if they needed help to sort and organise they would naturally call me.

Oh well onwards and upwards, I am about to get beyond ruthless and fire-bomb the whole house, wait to see what's left and move......well it sounded like a plan to me.

When I use to go to work, I would leave very early in the morning and even at weekends could not actually sleep passed about 6am. These days the mornings are like a whole different life to me. But I still tend to wake up early, well by 7am most mornings and as you know pain is my enemy and none more so than in the mornings. In order to start the day I have to take pain meds. Then lie around waiting for them to do their thing. I use to read in the mornings, but found that some days I couldn't concentrate because of the pain.

While waiting for the pain to become manageable I now normally turn on the tv in my bedroom, but soon found the news and other stuff terribly boring.
To the rescue came Channel 4 in the shape of their morning of comedy, that consists of Will and Grace, Frasier and my new favourite Everybody Loves Raymond.
Channel 4 screen two episodes Monday to Friday and although it has been on over here before I have never had the time to watch it.

I have come to the conclusion that comedy is far and a above the best way to start the day, but today Everybody Loves Raymond very nearly put me in hospital. I don't think I have laughed for so long and so hard in a long time. I just had to put the clip up for you all to see how I start the day.

And; then again there is always Nutty, who sent me this today in an e-mail click HERE
Laughter is indeed the best medicine and I intend to keep overdosing myself in it.


  1. I love how you think. Laughter is, indeed, the best medicine!!!

    I have to admit, moving the household sounds intimidating! But, if anyone can do it, and do it efficiently, I suspect it's you Lia! Have a wonderful weekend and don't forget to take it easy :) xoxoxoxoxo
    P.S. That Raymond clip is HILarious!

  2. Hi neighbour !
    wish i could send you some sunshine from your dear Andalucia but alas it might rain again...
    thank you for the comment and well, yes Irving's Alhambra's tales is the very first book i bought when i settled here! it's everywhere in your nose.. :-)
    Have a wonderful week end!

  3. There are a lot of those sitcoms that I never watched when they were in prime-time but now enjoy in re-runs. "Raymond" is one of them. When it comes to increasing endorphins to lessen pain, petting kitties is a great way--it works for me!

  4. My hubby is a huge fan of everybody loves raymond. I love raymond's horrid mother LOL and his cranky dad the best. Laughter IS totally the best medicine.
    Wishing you a great weekend.
    *kisses* HH

  5. I live that show every day.....My MIL is just like the MIL on that show, I'm Debra but I'm married to Robert.....

  6. I'll tell you what, Lia. I think that laughing actually IS medicine. There is nothing like it to make you feel better and, I think that the doctor should prescribe watching these really funny programmes. One of my favourites, at the moment is Outnumbered. Have you seen it ? If not, you must. It's brilliant.
    Have fun and laugh a lot this weekend, Lia. XXXX

  7. I think your right, comedy is the best medicine...on my post, yes, I have double trouble coming I know, and your post has me a wee bit worried...LOL

  8. I haven't seen ELR but will have to look out for it.

  9. If you're starting your day in pain--humour is the way to go! I have the Brit--it's almost as good as a sitcom? LOL

    I don't wanna know how much 'stuff' I have in this house--but I do keep trying to whittle away at it. Afraid that's with just a BIT of success--as soon as I pitch, himself's salvaging and tucking it in a safe place.
    Hmmmmm..maybe I need to send him on an adventure for the weekend!
