This week seems to have passed in a blur, you know, one of those weeks when you have no idea what day of the week it actually is. I didn’t even realise it was Friday this morning, so I’m writing this post last minute.
Monday we did the food shopping with the kids in tow. Not one of my brightest ideas I admit. I find shopping totally exhausting and the kids find it boring, so it was a recipe for disaster. However, I’d already done half the shopping online so we could skip several aisles and I had reward vouchers that I gave to the kids to spend.
So we set off to our local huge supermarket. The kids chose their gifts pretty quickly, and then we were off. I just wanted to select the fresh produce myself for a change, so our aim was fruit and veg, meat and fish and fresh bread. Of course the kids had to have cakes too. We didn’t do too badly, until I came to the checkout. I had a budget, seeing as I’d already done half the shopping online. I nearly died when the tiller asked for nearly twice as much as my budget!! I’m not going to the supermarket again!
My hubby Graham has been spending a couple of days this week helping my brother and sister-in-law with their house move so he’s not been around so much. The kids have spent more time on screens that I would like, but I’ve not had the energy to do much with them. I guess that’s why one day has blurred into another.
We did venture out again on Wednesday, to the clinic for Star. We watched a rather informative You Tube video called ‘The Poo In You,” go on, check it out if you have five minutes. Anyway, the bad news is that Star still has a big problem and we still have a program to stick to, which we are hoping will help.
That’s two days out this week, so Thursday left me exhausted and I also felt ill. The smallest illness can have the most drastic effect on my body and the kids have had colds this week so I guess they’ve passed the germs on to me. Yesterday I spent a lot of time in bed.
Last night was the worst I’ve had in a long time for spasms but thankfully I didn’t fall out of bed. I’m just glad that I finally got through to my consultants secretary this week and managed to get an earlier appointment. My appointment was in October, now it’s in September.
Also, this week, I’ve managed to spruce up my kitchen with some new items, including a new toaster which is much nicer than the last, and I’ve read a book. My week may seem a little tame in comparison with others but I think I’ve achieved a lot despite being ill. (More than usual) It’s the illness that’s blurred one day into the other.
