Technically I've spent the week on the West Coast of Ireland and all I'll be doing in Belfast is changing buses.
The weather in Ireland has been amazing, even with some rain. I've spent most of the week at a lake side house my friend and her husband purchased recently. Whilst she's been sorting out workmen, repairs, installation of utilities and measuring for furniture I've been helping where needed, driving and chilling out reading my book and typing up name lists for the Christmas charity I'm involved with in South Africa.
I really haven't been at all well, from a migraine related to the flight and driving and stomach problems from buying and taking aspirin thinking it was paracetamol. The migraine was understandable but the stomach problems have made me really irritated with myself for not reading the label properly. There's a lesson to be learnt by everyone here.
167 Sunday Recovering from a migraine and being sick during the night. Took a walk around the area, a light lunch and coffee. The evening was spent snacking and watching TV.

168 Monday I was so sill throughout the night with sickness and diarrhea. Then from mid morning I had horrendous stomach cramps. It was also very cold during the day and whilst I was able to spend the day with my friend while she met various people in relation to the house she's bought over here, I really wasn't good company and went to bed early.

169 Tuesday Felt much better today however I still had horrendous stomach cramps that had me doubled in pain at times. Saw a pharmacist who thinks it could be the medication I took for the migraine as I'd accidentally bought aspirin and not paracetamol. Had some soup in the evening having followed the BRAT diet (banana, rice, applesauce and toast)
