It's been a long week and involved a lot of driving from Heathrow, collecting mum then down to Brighton for the week. I'm exhausted and I ache all over. GP called on Tuesday to say I have no folate, no B12 and after 2 months on Via D tablets my levels have dropped further. The haematologist also phoned to arrange bloods at the hospital on Tuesday.
100 Sunday Up early, checked out and at airport for 7.30am, fight delayed by an hour but we still have silver status so made the most of the lounge hospitality. Flight home was good, suitcases in hall on arrival, but sadly car damaged when it was dropped off.
101 Monday Off to Gloucester to collect child 1 then met up with DIL and grandchild at a car show, took grandchild on the tea cups, then we had to leave as child 1 wasn't coping with the windy weather, the people, noise and in general just being out. Took her to mum for lunch which she refused so after packing mums cases, we took child 1 back to her home before taking mum back to ours for the night. I spent the evening with the neighbours children being bounced and jumped on.
102 Tuesday Mum and I set off for Brighton and surrounding area, she's staying with her sister for the week in Hailsham, I'm with my cousin in Seaford. A straight forward drive, a coffee stop, then a phone stop for GP update, still no Bit D in my body after 2 months of meds and booked in for B12 injection 3 a week for two weeks, a blood testa at 6 weeks then every 2 months for ever.
103 Wednesday Collected mum and her sister to visit their brother, I popped out for some shopping, then collected them to take to another brother, then took them back. It was a 2 hour and 45 minute round trip over 66 miles. I popped down to the Marina and called in at a garden centre. Evening spent with cousin.
104 Thursday Caught the bus into Brighton for the day. Sadly a young man had been swept into the sea and his body washed up on the beach in Saltdean, which was a bit of a shock to see from the bus. I walked round Brighton, visited the Lanes, Pavilion Gardens, walked up to the West Pier then along the beach to the Palace Pier, played on the 2p slots, visited the Sea Life Centre, then bus back.
105 Friday Off to Eastbourne for the day. Bumped into a cousins wife, who just assumed someone must have died for me to be in the area. Very windy and wet, walked along the sea front, went all in at the Pier and spent £2 on the 2p slots to win thousands of tokens to exchange for a pencil and some sweets for grandchild. Fish and Chips for tea.
106 Saturday Said my goodbyes and collected mum, dropping her off on route then home via a quick visit to grandchild. Car and bag unpacked, bath and sofa then an early night.
