@emsarah awwww the baby birds are so cute, thanks for sharing that picture with us
@dot Yes, we’re all in this together. Up and down on those waves.
I'm glad everyone liked the bird pic! Made me so happy to see them too
@Dot that's lovely you got to see Ms5 but so so sorry it's now made that big pem wave hit again. That was such a good way to describe it, really resonated with me. Today my wave has receded quite a lot, and my head feels clearer, and while my legs are weak for longer trips down the hallway, I feel a lot more normal doing the small distances I am used to around my bedroom and bathroom!
@river aren't they so fluffy and sweet!
@Glimmer hope you're appointment was ok. Hope the wave isn't too stormy to ride back down.
Thanks for asking @emsarah. Got to my appointment- hairdresser; that should keep me going for another few weeks. And I did a bit of shopping while I was there. So now I’m on my bed with a headache. Just as well there’s leftovers for tea and nothing to do tomorrow.
@glimmer The hairdresser is a nice appointment, but I bet it was draining. Hope the headache passes soon Yay for leftovers!

Good morning to everyone in the spread out sharehouse for ME/CFSers, each of us waking up in our own room and gradually coming out to the forum living room with a cuppa
Checking in with each other how we are going, and saying hi to everyone, and enjoying that gentle company before we head back to our lives.
@artist55 I'm thinking of you today as you can tick another week off, of the too-many-hours job, and the Christmas art works.
@sapphire777 sending best wishes to your little nest and hoping that somehow you can get more supports happening.
@emsarah thinking of the little family of birds with the babies growing up so quickly. And hoping the hallway travel might be even easier today.
@Glimmer Fingers crossed you are waking up with that headache eased and feeling really good with a haircut and that shopping done.
Well I think I have stopped that nasty revving, and I am back to just moving very slowly but that is better for me, so I embrace the snail.
Slow handwaves to everyone popping in to read and lots of good wishes that today is a day you can do some good things.
@dot Good morning Dot, from one snail to another. Yes headache has eased. Now I need to recharge the batteries, or replace the batteries if I could.

Good morning @dot and @glimmer
So nice to have this place to come and check in every day
I'm glad the PEM and headache has eased for both of you. Hope the slow and steady battery recharge goes ok. Sign me up if you find a place that does new batteries @glimmer
I am not at the farm with the willy wag tails any more (only getting updates from my partner - he saw them being fed yesterday!) but I'm listening to a chorus of tweeting in the suburbs haha. It actually amazes me how much nature and activity you can hear all around even in somewhere more urban.

Hello my lovelies,
Woot symptom severity count is down for me this morning (note to self: do not mess it up by doing too much).
Oh but I want to properly clean the kitchen!
Well small steps Dot. Do three things then rest.
Okay, since I must...
All right, self talk done, pot of coffee drunk.
Another day means another chance. Wish me luck.
Good luck to you all too!
Hello fellow snails
Hooray for headaches easing
Ooh yes I am in line at that battery shop too, the minute you find it!
Send my wishes across to the farm to the willy wagtail family!
@dot hello! Yay for low symptoms. Good luck keeping the need to use that energy low! Argh I relate so much!
I had a lovely surprise from my partner last night, he came home early and cooked me steak which he sliced up and served with caprese salad (tomato, basil, mozzarella). He'd watched his Gennaro videos again. Felt so loved. It was so special
Here's the latest pic from the nest! (A little blurry sorry!)
@emsarah What a lovely partner you have. . He’s a keeper!
And those little chicks will be up and out in no time.
@glimmer He was so sweet. He's been working so hard lately on the farm so we've had so many microwave dinners. And he said last night I want us to still have a few nice cooked meals! My little heart!
I know! They are almost too big for that nest now!!
How is your headache and post haircut PEM today?
@emsarah My headache has returned. It likes to hang around, but after a couple of quiet days I’m hoping to be okay.
@glimmer Argh yuck. The lingering is so draining. Go away headache, we don't want you! I'll cross all of my fingers for you

Good morning everyone from the Wild West
@Dot Another school week done and dusted and now that yesterday’s PEM is easing I’m starting to feel more human. I hope your symptoms remain low for you too.
@Glimmer wishing you a headache-free day today. Hopefully you will be able to get out and show off your lovely new haircut for a little bit too
@emsarah those little birds are so sweet- thank you for sharing the photos and keeping us updated on their progress I hope your legs are less wobbly today too!
I have been plodding along so slowly on the portrait for a few weeks now but it’s finally finished and if I can work out how to insert a photo of it I will. In the meantime I’ll wish you all a beautiful day

Yay! A few hours later but I managed to get the photo up:) Note to self: use the laptop and not the phone!
@artist55 That's stunning! Thank you for sharing!
@artist55 That is lovely. You’ve done a wonderful job, and well done managing the whole process and completing it. . Thank you for sharing.
