Grateful for...An Extra Pair

These last few days have felt luxurious.
Absolutely blissful.
Truly decadent.

Whilst I haven't actually been living a life of indulgence as such, I feel as though I have!

There has been no silver service or 5 star hospitality in sight
- but my Hubby has been at home this week.

Hubby has been resting and recuperating from his (successful) nose op around here 
- with a bit of work and Facebooking thrown in for good measure.
(The man has finally succumbed and joined the Facebook revolution - just a tad behind the rest of the so-called civilised world!)

For my dodgy wrists, having an extra pair of hands around the house - literally
- is the best medicine possible.

For my energy and tolerance levels having another adult - particularly the one you adore
-around the house has been the best treat possible.


At times, I have almost felt ashamed of my good fortune - at the expense of Hubby's nasal passages!
I've also felt incredibly guilty this week when talking to girlfriends who haven't had the luxury of 'popping to the shop/chemist/kindy/hand surgeon' with little fanfare or pack-horsing.
I have even used a single handbag on a number of occasions this week!

I'm so very grateful for the week of shared parenting that I have enjoyed.
Really enjoyed.

And I guess I should be grateful that Hubby's recovery has been so terrific, he will return to work a number of days earlier than expected.
Yeah. Excellent. :-)

How was your week?
Any lucky breaks come your way?

I have had my hubby home since mid September as he recovers from heart surgery. Enjoy these moments. Soozxx

Oh how wonderful Shar, good news all round. I must admit I LOVE having hubby around too, although it is a rarity around these parts. Now don't you go punching hubby in the nose in your sleep or anything, just so he has to take a few more days off to recover... and don't pretend you haven't thought about it ;)
Missi is looking delightful there xo

it is always special when the hubs is home to share the load, keep you company and just be there with you. Hope he has recovered well too xxx

An extra pair of parenting hands is awesome. Glad you got to share the load and he recovered well.
