It has not been a good week.
I survived work on Monday, but it was a really odd day. I never felt like I was on top of anything and my brain was all over the place.
I would walk into a room and forget why I had gone in. I would sit at a computer to do something and then completely forget what. I thank my lucky stars that my patients got all their medications as prescribed and I handed over at the end of the shift with a huge sigh of relief!
Tuesday was a day off and I felt completely drained and didn’t do much. Looking back, it was probably a precursor to what was to follow.
I had a relatively good night’s sleep and woke up at 05:30 to start my usual routine before heading off to work.
I wasn’t feeling particularly great but just put it down to the fact I am not an early bird.
I had my coffee, did my morning trawl through Tumblr, Twitter, IG, BBC news, etc, but there were rumblings…. literally.
As I arrived for work, I realised that my tummy wasn’t well. I didn’t even get into my uniform. I informed my manager and I came home again, where I curled up on the sofa and that is where I have spent the last two days (excluding a quick trip out for supplies) because apparently, you can’t be a Mother and be sick at the same time!!
Today, I’m still not 100% and I’m feeling completely wiped out, but at least it appears to be getting better.
It has at least given me a chance to binge some movies.
I’ve started keeping track of them again. Something I literally gave up on during my Uni course.
So far this year I have watched 70 movies. Only 6 of them have been at the cinema so far, and to put a little perspective on it, we are only 66 days into the year!
Anyway, 6 more days before my self imposed ban on mentioning a certain actor is over, watch out!
I am going to continue chilling this afternoon and taking things easy over the next few days. Thankfully my days off this week are bumped right up next to my days off next week, so I’m not actually back at work until Weds!!
Time to totally re-charge the batteries…. I hope.
