Started on Beta Blockers this week to help ease my migraines, anything is worth a go now. They are also supposed to help with anxiety, which has been getting worse as I get closer to thinking about returning to Dubai next month. I've also been having some problems with chest pain on the right hand side and although the iron infusion is starting to help with the lethargy, I still can't seem to take a full breath in my right lung. I'm starting to question if I have pneumonia again. It's something I've had several times over recent years. I'll contact the Doctor next week, if it doesn't improve or gets worse.
Container due in on the 7th November, no word from the UK side and I don't even have a copy of my insurance, the container seal number or any booking info. Yes, I'm stressed, but also Inshallah, basically it's God's will. I shall be asking hubby to call the UAE side and ask them to 'do the needful'. Honestly!!!!
House/pet sitters confirmed and visiting next week so I can meet them and they can see where they're living for the next 3 months. There's a few things I need to do in the house before they come. The bed needs taking apart and reassembling in the spare room, the 2nd half of the curtains need to be hung in the conservatory and decorating the last two bedrooms.
292 Sunday I took Bob for a walk up the Malvern Hills and a take away coffee in town. I collected conkers, acorns, twigs and leaves, why? why not? I raked leaves off the lawn and made a leaf composting basket. My friend phoned and asked if I wanted to join her for a dog walk, so in the afternoon we set off for a 3 hour ramble to explore a new route she's been wanting to try. The views were amazing.
293 Monday The migraine has now settled in the left hand side of my neck and I'm back to NOT sleeping again. I mowed the lawns and spent the afternoon with Bob at Croome.
294 Tuesday I booked a ticket to visit Country Pumpkins for Bob and I. I picked 3pm as I figured there would be less kids as it would be pick up time. Kids aren't a problem but they all want to pet Bob and he gets a bit over whelmed plus the parents come to close to me without masks.
295 Wednesday Walked up the Malvern Hills, through the woods and back through town. Started a new jigsaw and baked a date and walnut cake and some dog biscuits.
296 Thursday I had a full day and got home at 9.30pm absolutely shattered. Door step dropped some jam jars with an old school friend, called in at a friends, unannounced who has been having a tough time recently, a quick cup of tea and natter. Bob escaped from her garden and some random guy walked him up from the village towards the voices yelling 'Bob' Garden visit and cuppa with another friend, then on to collect a crochet gift from Hooks and Dragon then to visit grandchild and Daughter in Law for a walk in the woods and dinner.
297 Friday Popped to a local charity shop to buy a toy pram and a vacuum cleaner for grandchild, into town for Novembers Gardening magazine and a Costa. Home to finally hang the curtains, but ran out of curtain hooks, ran the cleaner round, did some jobs in the garden and my friend visited with chips. Put together some quick Halloween decorations.
298 Saturday Off to Worcester in the final saga of the Wickes door return. Walked along the canal and the town, stopping for a starbucks, home, walked Bob in the pouring rain, spent the afternoon on the sofa watching TV.

Hope the beta blockers do the trick for both the migraines and the anxiety. Fingers crossed it's not pneumonia again. Looks like you have done a lot of walking this week.ReplyDelete
Thank you, I hope so too, the walking helps with getting me out and some exerciseDelete
Oh no, I hope it's not pneumonia ! Fingers crossed the beta blockers will help, both with the migraines and calming you down for the flights. That looks like a lovely walk with the dog and your friend. Glad you managed to get the door sorted out !ReplyDelete
feeling so much better now, think the chest pains may have been due to anxietyDelete
Good luck with the Beta Blockers, I hope they help. Like you say anything is worth a try.ReplyDelete
It sounds like you have had some lovely walks out with Bob. x
I think the new meds are really helping out nowDelete
hope the beat blockers help with the anxiety as well as the migraines, I hate being in pain and find it so exhausting and depressing.ReplyDelete
Wow 3 months away......but I hope you enjoy it. What is the virus like "back home" ?
the beta blockers have kicked in now and I feel so much better, back home there are tighter laws and they have a better control over the virusDelete
Sorry to hear that you are still suffering from migraines and chest pain too – hope you feel better soon. Waiting for the container and the paperwork needed sounds stressful. Love all the photos of your walks and glad that someone returned Bob when he escaped from the garden. What a gorgeous crochet gift to receive. #project366ReplyDelete
I took a while to realise Bob was missing. It's been great being able to go on so many walks, hopefully the weather stays goodDelete
Hope the Beta blockers help.ReplyDelete
Good you are getting out for walks...the views do look good in that picture
it keeps me sane being able to go out for long walks in such beautiful placesDelete
Sounds like you have had a busy week again, Hope the beta blockers get working and you start feeling better soonReplyDelete
The beta blockers seem to be working really wellDelete
Hope the beat blockers help, and that it is not pneumonia as you were worried about. Bob the dog looks gorgeous in the Pumpkin patch, but what a naughty boy to escape from you. Glad he was caught in time. The views are beautiful, love the street view with hedges too.ReplyDelete
Bob has been discovery a bit more freedom since we've been back to the UK, he thinks he can go off lead now whenever he wantsDelete
Some gorgeous walks this week and a 3 hour ramble with a friend would have been bliss even without that scenery! However, I hope you are feeling much better this week and you aren't suffering with pneumonia as suspected!ReplyDelete
Cheeky Bob going for a wander on his own, but glad he found his way back with help! Sim x
It's been my life saver being able to go out with Bob so much especially when I've met up with my friendDelete
Lovely pictures from your walk, I would have liked to get to a pumpkin patch but we were still in lockdown in Wales. But I enjoyed seeing Bob next to a pumpkin :) Hope your feeling better with your health xReplyDelete
My kids were too old before Pumpkin patches were a thing, so I thought why not? with BobDelete
I planned to look for a pumpkin patch for about the third year running but didn't manage it yet again, love the pic of Bob and completely understand why you would avoid busy times. Hope you are feeling ok and the beta blockers are effective #project366ReplyDelete
The beta blockers seem to be working for now, thankfully. I really enjoyed visiting the pumpkin fieldsDelete
Good plan on the pumpkin picking time. Bob looks very impressed with the ones you chose. Hope that the new meds are helping. Looks like some lovely walks that view in the first photo is beautifulReplyDelete
Bob has no idea what I'm doing he just jumps up on the bales for a treat, the views around Malvern are fantasticDelete
Oh no, that's a lot to go through. Yay Inshallah! :D leaf composting basket? Interesting. Croome looks lovely. OoOo pumpkin picking. Lovely canalReplyDelete
Croome is a lovely place to visit, the pumpkin picking was fun, never done that beforeDelete
