Exhausted but happy

Well this week has been hectic so far. A trip to Attingham kicked it off. My back was hurting me by the time I had finished wandering around the house, sitting down taking in the atmosphere and then wandering back to the education room to see what I was aiming for. I am glad I had the support of Julie and Nicola. I don't think I would have got through it otherwise.

Been to a support group meeting tonight and oh what a boost that has been. Being able to collect clothes for Cancer Research UK to add to the fund of the Relay for Life event to be held later on this year.

To top it all someone gave me a lovely long grey coat and it fits me a treat. Now Steve can have his old faithful back and I know he is extremely grateful.

Its been a week of lows and highs but mainly highs. I just wish I wasn't so exhausted. Waiting for appointments and then realising I have been missed off lists for six month checks is not helping my mood one bit.

At least by keeping busy with the charity I am not dwelling on it.

I know the appointments will come around eventually knowing my luck they will be on the same day and the staff will be trying to obtain the notes prior to each clinic. This has happened to me several times before. I ended up at the hospital from 8.30 am until 7pm that night after being pocked and prodded and then being informed I had to go to day surgery for a pre op assessment following the clinics.

At least I know the drill I suppose but it doesn't phase me. Its my nerves I have to deal with.

I didn't sleep much last night I got up at 3.30 am. Steve discovered I was awake and came down to see what he could do to make things better for me. There was nothing to allay my fears and worries at that time in the morning.

Everything going on in my head. I just hope I can manage to get some decent sleep tonight.

We are off out again tomorrow as my dear nephew bless him had forgotten his flat keys and left them hanging on the hook on the wall. It wasn't until we returned home we discovered them after dropping him off. So to prevent them getting lost in the post we are off out again to safely deliver them.

So that is my post for today tired but happy.

Best wishes
