Another week on my own. Peter spent half the week in Istanbul and the other half in Saudi Arabia. I did get to see him briefly on Wednesday for a few hours.
Looking back through my facebook memories this is nothing new. I find I'm getting quite lazy outside of keeping the house clean and walking the dog. I can spend hours watching youtube and doing nothing around the house. I go out everyday for a coffee and a walk, as well as meeting up with friends at least twice a week, but the time in between not a lot gets done. So I've written a list of things I want to do, crafts, tidying and blogging and decided to timetable myself activities so I don't just waste everyday.
119 Sunday By 10am I was bored out my brain. Took Peter to catch the train after walking Bob, watering the garden. Got fuel and coffee on my way home and started writing lists to organise myself a bit more. Had a new chair delivered so I can spend the evenings in the lounge with Peter (when he's home) Due to an old neck injury, I find sitting for any length of time painful and it can contribute to my migraines. Hoping this new chair will help.
120 Monday Met a friend for coffee at City Walk and took some photo's for my 'before, during and after' theme for My Sunday Photo. This flamingo caught my eye, I love flamingoes. I had less than 24 hours notice for my bone marrow biopsy which I had done in the afternoon. OMG, the pain, despite the area being numbed, felt like someone had a red hot cork screw and was twisting it down into my back, to which the nurse said 'yep, that's exactly what happened. Slight delay getting home with admin, but my friend got lippy, took my ID and we left.
121 Managed to get some sleep despite the pain, feels like my back is on fire and when I move between lying, sitting or standing, it feels like the red hot corkscrew is back. Maintenance fixed a broken pipe on the roof and I ventured out for a coffee. Attempted to spray paint some tables I'd prepared earlier in the week, but it was too hot for the spray can to operate, so tried again after sunset.
122 Wednesday Peter made a brief appearance before jetting back off again. I managed to walk Bob and spent the morning watching TV, sorting photos and blogging. Really need a bath but it'll have to wait till tomorrow lol. Took Peter to the train for the airport, stopped off for coffee, pick up meds and finish some blogging. In bed at 9pm, was bored and couldn't stop eating.
123 Thursday Had a bath, wound seems fine. Friend collected me and we went to Ibn Battuta Mall for lunch. Met another friend for coffee in the afternoon to discuss a potential job.
124 Friday Peter was home in the early hours, went to the beach for breakfast with friends and did a food shop on the way home, chilled out in the afternoon and evening. I knocked my back getting into the car and the pain was fresh again.
125 Saturday Popped out for coffee and to get our eyes tested. I'm finding I need to wear my glasses now with all reading and screen work, my arms are no longer long enough. No change to prescription though. Peter now has to wear glasses all the time and is having the lens changed in one pair and a pair of prescription sunglasses and frames. he has opted for progression lenses and it cost just over £800 for the lenses and £200 for one pair of frames. Took Bob out at 6.30am for a long walk and had friends round in the evening for a BBQ.
