Ghost of weekend past2 April , 2012
Nicola gave me these flowers. 😀 What a sweetheart!
Well, after last week I thought we’d have a pretty easy going weekend and just rest up a bit. It sort of ended up that way but not exactly how I planned.
I was going to go see a movie on Friday but decided to cancel it since I didn’t want to leave Nicola at my folks if she wasn’t feeling 100%. Saturday morning we went to the mall cause there was a few things I needed to pick up. Month end weekend…the shops were crazy busy! We popped into Edgars for something and again there was chaos at the tills. We had to be shunted around between 3 different tills to get our stuff paid and I was wearing my not-even-a-little-bit-impressed face by the time we were done there. I tried to teach Nicola how to say, “We are not having an excellent customer service day.” She got some of it but not all.
By Saturday afternoon it was clear that all was not well. I eventually figured out that Nicola was having an ellergic reaction to the antibiotics she was on and stopped giving it to her. We’ve been carrying on with the Tonzilyt tablets, it seems to be helping at least. She was very sick from the antibiotics both Friday night and Saturday night. It looks like it really flares up when she falls asleep. I’m having them make a GIANT notice on her file at the doctor about the antibiotics today. Oh yes, and she had a big fall in the afternoon too. She climbed on a chair and when she tried to sit down instead of stand on it she lost her balance and now she has a bruise on her forehead on top of everything else.
Yesterday we went to a christening in Brits with my family and in the afternoon we had a proper Sunday lunch (roasted leg of lamb and everything that goes with it) at my folks. I ate so much I could hardly sit upright – yumm! After that Nicola and I settled down to a phenomenal 3,5 hour nap and when we woke up we just had some coffee and tea and then went home for even more sleeping. I feel like I’ve caught up with most of my missing sleep of the week over the course of this weekend…but I’m still soooo tired. My body better realise that we’re going back to the 5 hours a night situation today and not give me a hard time about it. 😉
Last week was rough rough rough…but we got through it. And Nicola, despite being pretty sick, was generally in a fairly good mood which helps a lot!
Can you believe it’s Easter this weekend already?! Bring on the long weekends – I’m ready! 😀
Ps! I’m putting together a care package for someone in KZN (a charity that helps teen moms who have no support) of baby and toddler clothes that are too small but still usable. If you’ve been threatening to chuck out some stuff that they might find useful and you want me to add yours to my collection, let me know.
