Noisy birds đŸĻ…


Sunday 12th to Thursday 23rd August

A nice welcome back message.

Missed you too 😘

Getting back into reality after a nice week in Cornwall was quite hard. It was made even harder by the fact that Leah was now down in Cornwall on her holiday (I wasn’t able to have the extra time off from work so that I was able to go and join her ☚ī¸)

Robyn and Leah had done a good job in looking after all my flowers while I was gone. I had given them full instructions before I left! Thank you girlies 👍

I came back to some pretty sunflowers đŸŒģ😃

I don’t think too much has happened 🤔 Maybe a couple of minor disasters!

I locked myself out one day 🙃 In the morning my door key had somehow come unattached from my key ring. I just put it down loose on the table. When I went out in the afternoon I just took my key ring with me. I realised as soon as I shut the door, oh fiddle my key’s not on there. Luckily Robyn was at work so I was able to go down into town and call in and borrow hers.

I also didn’t get very much sleep one night 😴 But not for any exciting reasons! I was late going to bed anyway and then the birds that seem to have come to live in the eaves of our house and right outside my bedroom, were having a party and were very noisy all night long. I even put my pillow over my head but it was still annoying. I took to the sofa in the end, but I still couldn’t get to sleep for ages and then I was woken by Leah at 6am when she got up for work. It was quite hard getting up and ready to go to work on 3 hours sleep and then I had a pre-arranged walk straight after. It was an enjoyable walk, four and a half miles, and surprisingly I really didn’t feel too bad. For some strange reason I then decided to cook dinner for us all and tidied away. Then my body wasn’t too happy đŸ˜Ģ

I have been going to work and then when at home I’ve been trying to get into the mood for sorting stuff out about the house. Sometimes I’ve been more successful than others. I keep choosing to go out on walks instead though, much more fun and a good distraction for my muddled head đŸ¤¯

Catch up


Friday 13th July to Friday 3rd August

And the reason why I got behind with my blog and need to do this catch up …

I was lucky enough to go to Cornbury Music Festival for the 3 day weekend, also helping to set up behind the Riverside stage the day before and helping with the takedown on the day after. The hot and sunny weather continued. Late nights and early mornings. Some fun times. Then going straight back to work the next day, you could say I was pretty tired!

Don’t forget to have a look at my pics of Cornbury on my Photos page 📸

I had a catch up appointment with Dr Fisher. He had received a letter from my consultant in Birmingham following my clinic appointment there. It was even quite difficult for him to understand! It didn’t really say much about the fluid that was found, just that I will have another scan at my next appointment. And it looks like I am going to be referred to another different specialist to investigate the tiny red spots which I kept getting a few weeks ago, which were itchy and sore, and whether they are to do with the Shingles virus or caused by something else!

On 20th July I was thinking of and missing my mum as always, on what would have been her birthday 😰

There was a day out in Stratford with both Robyn and Leah. We were all not having to go to work on the same day for once, which doesn’t happen very often. We mainly just chilled and did people watching while sitting on our deckchairs on the grass. (Doesn’t look much like grass does it! I think it needs to see a bit of rain!)

Then it was time for another festival, this time Riverside Festival in Charlbury. I helped a very tiny bit with this too. The weather continued to be lovely, hot and sunny up until the weekend of the Festival itself when it decided to become a bit stormy ⛈ Typical!

A fun job for me during the clear up!

Straight back to work the next day so rather tired again 😴 Then trying to catch up with some normal day to day jobs which have been neglected a bit, there hasn’t really been much spare time or energy for blogging 😖

And then it was time to start getting things ready for holiday 🏖
