Weekend roundup – the sick ones

Weekends go too fast as it is but when you spend one day of the precious weekend in bed being sick it’s not fun and such a waste of time.

Saturday - I spent in the garden, it was such a lovely day. I achieved lots and had planned to continue on Sunday as there is still a mountain of work to do. Rachel came to help she painted boxes but around mid afternoon started to feel and be sick. She went home.

Sunday – I woke around 2am feeling like I had really bad indigestion and stomach cramps, hot/cold went to the loo, sick, back to bed. Dozed on and off. Trying to sleep in an upright position is really difficult but if I lay down I felt worse. By 5am I was really being sick, you know the sort of sick where you think your stomach is going to turn inside out. The rest of the day was spent laying in bed listening to the sounds of spring, birds tweeting, mowers cutting, children playing, husband drilling and banging, feeling really sorry for myself. I finally roused myself around 2.30pm and had a bath. Felt marginally better and ventured downstairs to the sofa where I lay and watched a re-run of All Quiet on the Western Front and kept down a mint tea.  The only upside, yes there was an upside - I was 3.5lbs lighter this morning!!!!!!!

Garden Room -The wiring for sockets and lights has been completed and the outside lights are fitted. They look really good. The celotex insulation is ordered and will delivered this week. The family are all “hands on deck” this coming weekend to help fit it. I get to look after Rufus and feed them all.


  1. Oh My...so sorry you were feeling bad. Spring days are glorious even if one can only lie in bed and listen to the sounds arent't they?
