Week 9 One Daily Positive and Project 365

Last week I went to the GP for medication for my migraines as my ferritin levels were dropping, she said it's the menopause and I'm in denial. After I left she messaged me to say she'd read my notes and I was to arrange a blood test. She called messaged Monday to say Ferritin levels have dropped and to re issue my prescription, which is what I went in for in the first place.

I started my new job as a Learning Support Assistant in a Secondary School. I think I've identified my tribe in the staff room already. It's a really calm and relaxed environment.

I'm out of sync with my photos. managed to work it all out in the end (ish)

57 Saturday Off to Gloucester to visit Child 1 for the day. We had lunch out, home to watch the rugby. Fajitas for tea and the evening spent watching the TV. Neighbour tested positive for covid, I did an LFT it was negative, will do one again Sunday and Monday.

58 Sunday Walked the dog and cooked a Sunday roast. Afternoon spent cleaning upstairs ready for guests on Tuesday and got ready for starting my new job in the morning. Peter made a start with the window blinds.

I really need to get this shed sorted, just 2 days of dry weather should do it.

59 Monday Peter took me to work for 8.30am. Apparently I have to go in every day. I walked home just under 3 miles and plan to do this daily. Peter met me half way with the dog. Window blinds finished and I helped with fixing the new pelmet. 

St David's and Pancake Day and Spring has sprung.

60 Tuesday Off to work, walked home. Friends arrived visiting from their home in Germany. They were the some of the first people we met in South Africa 11 years ago. We went out to the pub for dinner.

Getting myself into a routine for work.

61 Wednesday While I was in work, Peter took our guests into Worcester and on to Stratford for the day. We spent the evening at home, drinking wine and catching up. 

The new day/night blinds and pelmet Peter made.

62 Thursday Off to work. Our visitors left mid morning, nice walk home, Peter came to meet me half way with the dog. I got to use the new washing machine, 3 loads of bedding and towels and there is 3 loads of clothes to go through over the weekend.

63 Friday Work again. Apparently I have to do this everyday. I've completed all the online training as well as observing and helping out in classrooms. I need to up my science and history knowledge if I'm to keep up with year 7.

A quiet night in to end the week.
