One daily Positive Week 7 from Dubai to the UK

.


I had a plan this week of things I needed to do before travelling to the UK on Friday, which went right out the window when a) my migraine followed me over into Sunday and b) I lost the blog post and had to start all over again. So the plan this week involves Dr's (no surprise there) nail bar and hair cut, dog park, bath Bob, wash all his bedding, wash human clothes and iron, pack suitcase, meet friends for coffee, drink coffee, print photo's, clean house and food shop.

42 Sunday was spent mostly in bed, took my 2nd and last dose of migraine meds, followed by eating Mcdonalds and chocolate and drinking coke. It really does work for me. In the evening I drove Peter to the airport, he's off to Pakistan and then a minor miracle occurred, I took his car to the testing centre and was in and out in 25 mins with the vehicle renewed for the upcoming year. Went to bed at 10pm.


43 Monday I didn't wake till 8.30am, dressed, walked Bob and met an Instagram friend for coffee, although that may not have happened as we have no Instagram proof, did some washing, blogging and packed my suitcase for my trip on Friday.

44 Tuesday morning Peter arrived home and I headed off to My 2nd Home with Bob for his weekly run off the lead, did some more ironing and hung around waiting to take Peter back to the airport for his trip to Saudi called in at Ikea on the way back, geez it was busy and the roads...... more sad news from the UK. Dad's best friend had a fall and is in ICU. Tim grew up with my dad and him and his wife Pat have always been Uncle and Aunty to me and their children treated as cousins. Pat died a few years ago.

45 Wednesday I dropped Bob at Paw Parking, for his bath and doggy day care, went to get my hair cut and nails done, Doctors for yet another blood test and called into see a friend, collected Bob, who smells divine, washed all his dog bedding, cooked dinner and bed.

46 Thursday Peter arrived home in the early hours and went into the office late in the morning. I cleaned the house from top to bottom and had my photo's developed and did a food shop for Peter whilst I'm away. I had the choice to dine anywhere in Dubai this evening and I picked Mcdonalds. I couldn’t be doing with the traffic and getting dressed up.

47 Friday an early trip to the airport and a 7 hour flight into Birmingham, collected the car hire and drove straight to see my nephew and niece, arriving late at my mums. I had chips for my tea.

48 Saturday I collected child 4 and back to see my nephew and niece. Popped in to see 2 and 2a on route.

  4. What an exhausting busy week for you. Glad you managed to have a treat for yourself, your hair looks lovely. My guys love McDonald's, I'm less enthusiastic about it. Hope your migraine is better after the meds.

  9. Love your hair cut, looks fab.
    Oh no at another illness.
    Peter does seem to get shunted from a to b to c with little rest time in between. Can you clock up air miles with what he does?
    McD's is an easy choice for me, know what I can eat with few allergy issues in there.

  10. I think all that ironing is giving you migraines, I know it would me. I kept a food journal to help with migraine induced vertigo and it did help. Coincidentally McDonald's was on the no fly list for me and it helped when I didn't eat fast food, especially msg. Love your hair cut, it's doing something my mop is incapable of.

    1. I've kept a diary for years, there is no link at all with food, time of month anything, it's just something I suffer with. Caffeine and high fat/sugar intake really do help when I get one

  11. Sounds like another busy week! Sorry to hear about your dads friend. How is he now?
