I haven't been eating properly the past month, due to isolation and eating out of boredom, also with a migraine the past week, cooking has been difficult, so I did some batch cooking and can go back to my routine of shopping fortnightly, as I can meal plan and picking up fresh milk and fruit etc when needed.
I had a hospital appointment Saturday for an iron infusion, been getting dizzy and breathless with more frequency and the migraines have been back with a vengeance. The car park was almost empty and parking was free which was a bonus as I had no idea how long I'd be in there. I was also asked to replace my cloth mask for a paper one, apparently it's a new directive. There must be some science behind it.
278 Sunday Up early, bathed and dressed. Cooked a few meals, caught up with blogging and comments, took Bob for a walk along the Malvern Hills, grabbed a take away coffee and home for a roast and to sort through yet more paperwork.
279 Monday I booked to visit a National Trust Site at Croome, they've opened up more of the grounds so a much longer walk for us, the house only opens in the afternoons and they said someone will look after Bob for me next time I visit if I want to go in, as long as it's quiet. I put the first part of the curtain track up in the conservatory.
280 Tuesday Took bob for a walk and tidied up the bits and pieces from where I'd been scrap booking and putting up curtain rails. Our Daughter in Law and Grandchild visited mid morning till late, we went out for a walk in the afternoon, had lunch and dinner. I was exhausted by the time they left.
281 Wednesday Had to go into Worcester for a refund for the door that Wickes finally collected, they emailed and tweeted saying it had to be done in store. When I got there they said they couldn't refund without knowing where the door was, made calls and informed me the refund was processed yesterday. Not a complete wasted trip, I walked around town, had coffee and bought material to make the curtains for the conservatory. I pout the rest of the rail up and had to do some complicated maths to work out the best cuts from the 2 part rolls I bought.
282 Thursday Spent the morning blogging, then planted out some winter seeds and did some more work on the dolls house, had lunch, started reading another book, dinner, walked Bob, moved a bed to the spare room, lugged a mattress upstairs and cut the material for the curtains.
283 Friday Had to go out to buy more header tape, so treated myself to a coffee stop, home to finish cutting, sewing and hanging the curtains in the conservatory, sanded the dolls house down ready now to start painting. Met a friend in the afternoon to walk the dogs together. Sewed all the curtains and hung them to check for gathering and length.
284 Saturday At Worcester Royal Hospital for an iron infusion, the rest of the day spent in bed or on the sofa, had a really bad migraine within an hour, which was expected from previous experience, the dose is being split over two weeks so hopefully it won't last as long or be as intense as the last time.
