While you’re up…..

This is my new favourite phrase of the week. There are many things that I can’t currently do very well, or without great difficulty, or in fact at all; bringing food through from the kitchen, hanging up my laundry, getting ice packs out of the freezer to name but a few. I’m conscious that I don’t want to drive my housemates completely crazy looking after the “cripple” as they call me. So instead of asking for this, that and the other, I’ve been eagerly waiting until any of them move a muscle and then I jump in with a “oh while you’re up, would you be able to….”

My worry is that I don’t have an unlimited amount of “while you’re ups”, so I’m using them wisely. But surely I get more of them, than the standard “please could you get me”?

Either way, I’m very grateful for my accommodating housemates (special thanks to Vicky for ferrying me around and thanks to Becky for homemade profiteroles last night!!)
