Last week I left you feeling tired. But this week I’m Chilling.
A Trip to the GP
I had a trip to the GP because of a few issues I’ve been having with my health. I now have to go for blood tests and an ECG. I’m okay, but it’s probably best I’m taking things easy.
I don’t have my tests until next week, I’m pretty sure that nothing will show up, I’ve had them done before. I’m just a bit weird that’s all.
Last Friday was Boo’s 11th birthday and she had a lovely day. Her friend came around for a party tea and they played in the garden. She decorated her own birthday cake and we lit the candles and sang Happy Birthday.
Then later I introduced her to The Greatest Showman, which she loved. I knew she would, she loves singing and dancing.
Next week it is the Little Man’s birthday. I’ve not made any plans yet. I do have his presents but he also has some money to spend so we’ll be taking a trip to Smyths Toy Store. I’ve saved a little back from Boo’s birthday so she can buy something too, and lucky Star will get some of her birthday money early. I guess it’s only fair as we will be on holiday when it’s her birthday!
A Chilled Out Weekend
On Saturday, I was still tired and unwell and Graham was out for the day as he was off to a charity gig in memory of his friend Robin who died suddenly earlier this year. I was originally going with him, but it was a bit far and he had a lot to do to help with setting up and running people around. It would have been a very long day for me and the kids and we probably would not have made it. So we stayed home. But it wasn’t so bad.
We watched Jumanji 2, which was brilliant. I actually thought it was better than the first film but I love Robin Williams so I won’t say that out loud.
Sunday was another chilled out day. Boo has discovered, thanks to her big brother, My Ordinary Life. A Japanese anime. It’s totally bonkers, and subtitled, but Boo loves it and is already up to episode 8.
So my word of the week this week is Chilling. We have a lot of things happening in the next few weeks, another Birthday, a Christening and a holiday, so this has been my chance to sit back and relax.
And while I’m feeling chilled, I’ve also been feeling a little chilly. The change in the weather was welcome, and the cool breeze a truer breath of fresh air was never felt.
EDIT: I wrote this a bit earlier in the week and the weather has changed again, Summer has resumed.
