Not a good week

 Sorry for the lack of posts recently, nothing much to say and it's not been a good week, one way or another.

I've been tearing my hair out (already thinning!) trying to work out how we're going to adjust to our new reduced circumstances and what to do for the best, it's been giving me a lot of sleepless nights.  We've now come up with a possible plan, but it needs a lot more investigation before I know if it will be viable for us.  I know I'm not giving out the full picture....well, I won't be, I'm not publishing all our personal details on the world wide web.

To make things worse, my friend told me midweek he's having his jab today - he is several years younger than me, at the same surgery as me and has no underlying health conditions.  Whilst I'm happy for him, I was a bit upset about that, I felt like I'd been forgotten, especially since the website told me I still wasn't eligible.  As it happens, I have now got mine booked for next Tuesday, but I do wonder how they work things out.  And, just to add to my misery, I have a cold and have felt quite rough for the past couple of days.  Must have caught it when we went shopping earlier in the week...I've not been anywhere else and not come into contact with anybody, nor has husband, other than taking Betty out.  In fact, I've hardly had any contact with anyone this week, not even by text or phone.  Hope the cold's gone by the time I go for my jab, don't want to be coughing or sneezing there!

It's absolutely peeing down again, standing water everywhere, the fields are swamps.  It's so depressing.  Apparently we are going to have some sunshine next week....I bloody hope so.


  1. I am pleased you have sorted out lots of things and it goes well for you.
    Sorry you have a cold and be careful, my GD and was advised to have a test because she had a cold and was positive and had to stay home, fortunately she has had the test now she is in the police.
    Take care,

  2. So sorry things are still rough for you. I hope you're able to sort things out quickly. I'm glad you're getting the jab. We had ours on Valentine's day (so romantic!) and the next day we both felt very lethargic and a bit headachey. Nothing that sleep and some Paracetamol didn't cure. Let's hope Boris has some good news for us on Monday and that the sun starts shining too. We could all do with cheering up! Take care. Hugs. xx

  3. Sunshine and a shot....should do the trick!

  4. We have now both had the first dose of the vaccine, headache and tired was how I felt. Gerards arm hurt for a day or two but all is well now.
