I need to apologise for not participating this week... there's been lots happening - and lots not happening... Also - sorry but there are no piccies either.
Came back from a wonderful weekend away on Monday - we went to Pontins Brean Sands for a long weekend with our friends from Cardiff which was lovely and made a really pleasant change.
Been in fair amount of pain over the weekend... didn't take the amitriptyline until I came back on Monday night and they have just knocked me out big style. Had a late morning on Tuesday, then had some long phone calls, started a couple of cards. OH did a BBQ - and the kids decided they didn't want anything... before you knew it, it was time to go to bed.
Up late again Wednesday. got a phone call from the docs to tell me that my liver function is abnormal and I need to have more bloods taken in 4 weeks time. A friend came round for some advice on his CV which i helped him to put some key points together. When he went, we watched the England match.
Got up earlier today as I had to take youngest DS to the orthodontist to have his upper fixed brace (train tracks) fitted... he's had patriotic and topical red and white cushions on his brace!!! Did a bit of shopping, had lunch as had to keep stopping and resting, bought my mum's birthday present whose Birthday was today (well, Thursday) then came home... used public transport due to not driving and really knew about it when I got home. Its a good job DS was with me as I couldn't carry anything and it really took it out of me. Started work on mums cards (I fessed up to her I'd not finished one)....
Mum is coming down here today (Friday) where she will get her pressies and cards. She didn't mind cos she said it would be like having two Birthdays (bless).
So there you have it. Its felt like I've been really busy (and I probably haven't been) but I feel like i have achieved very little. Its the very first WOYWW I've missed since I started in January - even managed to get a post on (with a little help from my friend Annie) when in hospital both times.... but things have just caught up with me and i feel like that are starting to take over - life 1 Paula 0
I will, given the chance, catch up through blogger dashboard - but if i don't visit you - please don't take it personally - I really am struggling at the moment.
Take care of yourself and if you got here - thanks for coming.
If you leave a comment - it will make my day - but don't feel obliged.
