While I Was Sleeping #9

To help me preserve my emotional health while my physical health is failing, Ben asked me to spend time…

…thinking about all of the things that make me smile, make me happy. He recommended trying to think of things I can enjoy now, even though I am ill, but also things that have added meaning and joy to my life in the past, and things I can daydream about being able to enjoy again in the future.


There are so many things that I am growing in appreciation for. This week I want to talk about:

Snuggly Blankets

What a comfort it is to be able to wrap up in a snuggly blanket!! Ben is keeping the windows open to keep a flow of fresh air, but it is so chilly outside. The answer to this situation is of course – snuggly up in a fleecy or a woolly blanket.

Some of the blankets we have here were from our old home in Hertfordshire. But Noo had also furnished this flat with snuggly blankets. There is a lovely woolly throw that was draped over the side of the sofa – which I am going to tell you more about, and a beautiful woolen throw that was a size of a huge bedspread.

I was very poorly a couple of weeks ago, and sadly that meant that the beautiful woolly throw over the sofa needed to be washed. Forgive me for not enlarging on the details of what happened to this beautiful snuggly blanket. My darling wonderful Bennyboo did something rather unfortunate. He put it into the washing machine on a high temperature cotton wash. Can you guess what happened to this lovely snuggly blanket?

Feeling very bad about shrinking/melting/ruining Noo’s gorgeous snuggly throw, Ben tried to find a replacement. Ouch! I have very expensive tastes it seems when it comes to where I decide to be ill.

For now, all expensive snuggly blankets have been relocated, and we are more than content with the remaining lovely snuggly blankets.
