we’ve just celebrated the spring equinox, but unfortunately I felt spoonless…
That doesn’t mean my boys can’t have fun right??!!?? Right!
Firstly my bestest friend set everything up in the garden the day before – what a star ⭐️
My boys wanted pizza for dinner, so my eldest made the dough early & my carer tidied everything afterwards – my angels 👼
So we were ready, but my body wasn’t…
Not a problem…
My boys had a friend over, so they all jumped in the hot tub whilst I took photos and then collapsed, just supervising 😉. Next they lit the fire pit – everything was ready for them, thanks to my bestie, so they had no trouble at all 👍. My eldest is 14 after all, and had lots of practice lighting the indoor fire through the winter 🔥.
Marshmallows = perfect!
I promised fireworks, but my pain was high and I was zapped, so needed to try to rest and hopefully nap to recover a little energy – did they complain??? Not at all! My boys have grown up with a chronically sick and disabled mum, so they know nothing different and totally understand 👍👍👍
So they had fun outside whilst I rested with mindless TV and yes, I managed a nap too, once the fentanyl top-up kicked in 😉
So it was 10.30pm before I woke & supervised the fireworks, but we made it! We did everything we planned 👍👍👍
It wasn’t perfect, I was too zapped to be the fun mum, but it turned out ok 😉. Having their friend over meant they were happy to just enjoy time together whilst I rested and took the odd photo 👍👍👍
Today they’ve tidied the garden, put away the tent – yes, they even camped out – and their friend has gone home…
My spoons are still low, but I can now enjoy the equinox weekend Spoonie style – chilling in the hot tub, sitting in the garden listening to the birds & generally just chilling 😉. So in the end we’ll all have had what we need 👍. I can’t ask for more than that 😄
I hope you’ve enjoyed your first spring weekend too!
