Monday 26th to Friday 30th September
Monday – I was very lucky today as I got to have a lovely cuddle with a tiny baby 👶 We met Robyn’s friend in Caffè Nero for a cuppa and baby Daisy came along too. Gorgeous. Hurry up with my grandchildren girlies 😘
It was Gary’s mum’s birthday today so later we called over with Emma for a visit, to take the presents and to have a cup of tea. I wasn’t feeling well and hadn’t eaten all day but I did manage to have a bit of birthday cake! 🎂
Tuesday and Wednesday – I just went to work as usual but it was a bit of a struggle, I still didn’t feel well. I had a terrible constant headache, unsettled tummy and just didn’t feel right.
I did manage to read an article about this though – I am sorry to say that we definitely do not have a plastic-free existence We have SO much plastic from all sorts of different products (but I must say that most of it does seem to come from food, and probably mainly the plastic tubs that fruit comes in now, as Robyn and Leah eat so much of it 🍇🍓🍑🍅) but I do make sure that by the end of the week our recycling boxes are always full …
Thursday – I got up and got myself ready to leave for the hospital for my volunteer work. Robyn then said to me ‘are you sure you should be going today?’ No I shouldn’t, but I was trying to make the effort. But this brought me to my senses a bit, I really shouldn’t be going, for myself because I just didn’t feel well, but also for the sake of the patients there just in case I was contagious 😷 So I didn’t go, but I was VERY upset about this.
Friday – I just happened to have a day off from work. I felt a little better. More packing and sorting and jobs around the house.
A difficult week. On top of not feeling well I was still dealing with everything to do with the house move which is still ongoing but just not going according to plan, VERY stressful. Then receiving a telephone call from someone completely changing what they had told us they were going to do previously, setting everything back even more. We have been ready to exchange for months now, we are being very patient.
I don’t know if it is all this stress that is starting to affect my health?
