Monday 31st July to Friday 4th August
On Monday afternoon I went over to Charlbury to help to clear away some of the leftovers from the Riverside Festival. I also went for a walk around there, and got a little lost for a while in the surrounding fields.
Tuesday was work which was very sadly followed by attending a friend’s funeral 😥
Wednesday was work.
I went to have my blood taken on Thursday. (Birmingham had requested this so that they could check my tac level as it had been quite high recently and my tablets had been reduced as a result). But what a performance that turned out to be. The nurse tried 4 times!!! and could get nothing so then I was transferred to wait for another nurse so that she could have a go! She was lucky on her 2nd attempt, but then after reading some notes on her computer decided she really needed some more blood for another test that should have been done. I just told her to do it and get it all over and done with, I didn’t want to have to come back again. Luckily she was successful straight away that time.
After the stress of having 7 needles in my arms, and feeling quite sore, I thought I deserved a stop off at Caffè Nero on my way home, for a much needed coffee ☕️
Friday was work followed by an afternoon of packing and sorting ready for my holiday 🏖
