We bought this guy today, to munch on the tiny flies we sometimes find in the kitchen! Dead easy to care for, and we’ve already fed him his first fly which was fun. It made me jump as it snapped so quickly!
I’m finally feeling well enough to do fun things again! This evening after work Nic and I headed out to Crystal Palace to see where the wind took us. We ended up at a new to us Mexican place! Had some lush cocktails and amazing food. I’m so so pleased to not feel ill anymore,Continue reading “03/09/21 – Tacos and cocktails!”
Back in London, which means back to our local walks! This evening we discovered some cheeky grapes growing hidden away in a larger bush. Even though I know grapes can grow in the UK is still surprises me when I stumble across them! I’m in a great mood today, so I’m holding onto it!
One last lunchtime walk with mum before I headed back to London this evening! Taking in the lovely petunias along the way, and savoring my last few hours hanging out with mum. But it’s not all doom and gloom as she’s already booked her train to visit next month – woo hoo! And I’m veryContinue reading “01/09/21 – Last minute meandering”
Back to work today finally feeling a bit more myself than the last week of ill Steph. Got lots done and then went on a lovely evening walk with mum where I snapped this equally busy bee. Mum then made Christmas dinner!! So I’m just living my best life once again. And I promise toContinue reading “31/08/21 – Buzzing around”
Lovely chance to spend some quality time with just my sister and mum today! Sadly I felt a lot more ill suddenly and really felt exhausted, but it was still lovely to have time time alone with them to just natter. After a bit of time to recover and lots of meds later, Helen cameContinue reading “30/08/21 – Lunch out!”
I’ve had a blast today playing with my niece and nephew. My sister’s not a big fan of photos of them online so you’ll have to make do with me in my childhood bedroom! This room brings backs floods of happy memories growing up. But I do wonder what I was thinking with it beingContinue reading “29/08/21 – Childhood bedroom”
Albeit three days later than planned, I have finally made it back to Cardiff after waking up this morning feeling so much better than the entirety of last week. Luckily the drive was easy breezy and now I get to hang out with my mum, sister and her kids for the long weekend. Lovely stuff!
Last night I ended up getting 10.5 hours of sleep!! Night Nurse thoroughly knocked me out and I woke up feeling much less rough than the last few days. A day of reading and relaxing finally made me feel like I’m on the mend. I even went for a walk in the evening!
It’s half nine and I’m in bed with a full dose of night nurse, let’s ditch this thing!! Another day feeling ill as anything so I’ve booked tomorrow off work and it’s time to sleep for 12 hours and get better!
