Friday I did manage to get a doctors appointment. They gave me a triage call back. And I was called within half hour. They booked me in to see the doctor at 11:45 so at 11:25 my mom picked me up. The doctor was useless. I told her my ear hurt and I have a cold (for background info). She proceeded to do my temp, my BP, listen to my chest, check my throat and then finally checked my ear. My ear is fine. She says it might be my jaw as I said I had noticed a lump on the joint of my jaw. She suggested I see my dentist. And that was it. I had originally planned to ask about my foot but she took so long to look in my ear I just couldn’t be assed.
Saturday morning I was shattered. My nose had reached a new level of blocked and I spent most my night waking up. I also felt feverish on and off. When Scarlett woke up just before 8 I was not ready for that. She did go back down later for a nap but I then had been awake too long and couldn’t sleep so I gave up lol
I had planned to do lots of things but I didn’t in the end. I felt so crappy. We stayed home before heading to my Nan’s for lunch. We ate. Had cups of tea. Then at 5:15 me and Scarlett got on the bus to Aldershot. I had reserved a table for us at Frankie and Benny’s. We had a nice meal just the two of us. We headed into Morrison’s and I got her a few bits. My Grandad picked us up at 7:30. We got home, I bathed Scarlett and got her in to bed for 9ish. I climbed into bed at midnight myself.
Sunday Scarlett laid in until 9am. What a babe! We barely had time to have breakfast before heading out the visit my gran at the old folks home. Her and Scarlett were playing catch with the ball. And swapping dolls. After we visited we went back to my Nan’s. We headed for dinner when my mom turned up at 1:15. We went to the harvester as my Nan had received a gift card as an anniversary present. 45 years my grandparents have been married. That’s a feat!! We ate then I went home so Scarlett could nap. She slept from 4 till 5:30. So did I by mistake. I knew I’d pay for it later and I did. I was still up wide awake at 2am.
Monday I woke up at 7am and surprisingly I didn’t feel tired. Scarlett got up fine, got dressed and then we went downstairs. I did her bottle, made my lunch and packed my breakfast. We were actually ready to go when my Nan turned up. That is rare. I am often still “doing” something when she shows up. So I felt quite accomplished. Work was fine. Busy. It will only get busier when my only other team member leaves in 3 weeks. I will legit be the only member of my team. Fun times lol
There is a sand storm coming from the Sahara. It’s not overly scary. It’s just turned the sky a weird yellow colour and made the world seem very dark and overcast. There is a hurricane due to hit Ireland at the moment. Hurricane Ophelia. I hope my Irish friends stay safe – you’s know who you are!
Scarlett was grumpy when I got in from work. She didn’t perk up much, I think her full days tire her out. She had a banana and a cup of tea. We ate dinner then I took her up for a bath. She was in bed by 7. Mom and I watched Emmerdale then she got herself ready for work. I watched Private Eyes followed by the series finale of Liar. It’s been left wide open for a season 2. Can’t wait.
I am in bed now. I am catching up with season 1 of The Exorcist before I start on season 2 [which I’ve recorded].
Ps. Christmas is 69 days!!
