Life is still busy here but it’s to be expected this time of year. I’m so looking forward to the kids breaking up from school and just chilling for a couple of weeks (or is that wistful thinking?)
I had my IVIG (Intravenous Immunoglobulin) last week in hospital. It was really busy but I still managed to relax a little and catch up on my book. I’m listening to A Discovery of Witches and finding some of it hard going. It’s a great story but it’s so drawn out at times. Plus it’s three times longer than the usual books I listen to.
On Tuesday I was back at the hospital for an ECG, just precautionary because of my condition. It wasn’t too bad, just uncomfortable trying to keep still for forty minutes.
The rest of the week past in a blur, I seemed to have got away with any side effects from the IVIG which was good, so I busied myself getting things done. Then for the weekend we’d promised the kids a day out at the Christmas markets. Now if you saw my Sunday photo yesterday you’ll see it was a bit of a wash out. It was raining way too much to walk around, and so so cold. We went in search of some Christmas spirit and all we ended up with was snotty noses!
Then on Saturday night I settled down to watch the final of Strictly Come Dancing, but I was the only one who wanted to watch it and the other grown ups in the house were horrified that it was on for two and a half hours. So I watched the first hour downstairs, then went up to my bedroom to watch the rest in peace.
By the end of the program my head was banging, it wasn’t anything to do with the show, I loved it all, but I had a dreaded migraine coming on. I stayed in bed but I didn’t get much sleep as the pain kept me awake most of the night. Sunday was spent in a migraine blur.
Then on Sunday evening Boo couldn’t sleep because she felt unwell. I think the trip on Saturday was more of a mistake than we first thought because during the night Graham was poorly too.
This week we have some shopping arriving, two food deliveries, one mostly treats and alcohol. I have a ton of wrapping to do, I need to do it before the kids break up from school. And we have a School concert to go to for the Little Man…I’m really looking forward to that.
