Did I miss one? I think I did didn't I?
Happy Friday everyone :)
Rocking my world this week, here we go...
Starting to feel human again. Today is the first day in a couple of weeks that I have woken up and known what day it is, where I am and managed to get up without fearing I would fall down the stairs, not scared the bejuzus out of the kids with my crazy bleary eyed appearance.
I'm not going to lie to you people. I have never, ever felt as ill as I have this month - I'm quite lucky in that usually I get away with a few bad colds a year and mainly just have to put up with varying degrees of aches and pains in my back. I've been scared this month. Really scared. My doctor has been a giant waste of space - so much so I'm thinking of changing. I've literally lost days - Craig says I just slept and couldn't be roused. I've coughed and coughed and coughed - you know that coughing where you think if I don't stop soon I am literally going to die of lack of oxygen? Imagine that almost non-stop for 2 and a half weeks. I've been ravenous but not able to keep proper food down only sweet stuff so have been living on sugary tea and swiss rolls. I'm gagging for some proper food - I'm losing weight too but I think that's all the coughing giving my stomach and side muscles a work out - certainly feels like it. I've only been managing 5 or 10 minutes at a time on the computer before feeling ill or headachey... have been gutted that I am now so behind on my online class. It's the first time I was able to join one from the beginning and am now in the same position as always. Bringing up the rear! *sigh* But today I have actually looked at my sketch books and maybe tonight I'll have a play.
Amidst the doom and gloom I am SO thankful for Craig. He's been a star. Looked after me, came home early when possible to take Ruby to school or pick her up, cooked, cleaned just done everything. He's been amazing. In fact I've been a bit grumpy at just how well he's managing everything! Can't win can he? But I don't know what I'd have done without him.
I am so thankful for Night Nurse without which I would be even more zombified than I was. And also for antibiotics, bronchial balsam, headache tablets... you get the picture. It's so easy to imagine how people long ago died of stuff like this without all the medicinal advances - how scary it must have been.
My girls - they've been stars. Making me tea, helping with dinners... I'm also appreciating them so much more today as I got such a sad email last night. One of the little boys we have been sending packages too via Post Pals died of his condition this week, he was so young. It just makes you appreciate what you have so much more. I have been a bit overly cuddly with Ruby today and she's getting a bit fed up of me. I'm so lucky to have 3 healthy girls, I should remember that more often when they are bickering.
The One World One Heart event. I'm getting around it slowly, slowly. So many inspiring bloggers out there. My wishlist is bulging with books of new things I want to try and my blog roll is growing with new blogs I must go back and have a proper look at... art dolls in particular are calling me, telling me I need to have a dabble. The event is on till the 17th and it's the final one so if you haven't already why not check it out and maybe even join in? Every blog is offering prizes too - my giveaway post is here. It's open to anyone who blogs :)
I'm sorry it's such an uppy downy Rocking week this week but in it's way it's still thankful. What Rocked Your World this week? Why not pop along to Virginia's and join in with us? Thanks as always for stopping by :)
