Friday was a bit of a wash-out for me. Still feeling unwell and queasy, I barely managed to get out of bed for most of the day. So yeah, that photo up there represents Day 5 of this Week In The Life project quite well. I pretty much stayed in bed, doing as much work as I can and resting in-between.
I actually felt bad because I was supposed to go to a meeting in Glenelg for lunch that day. It was a work-related get-together with someone from interstate. But, I had to cancel because I wasn’t fully recovered from the day before. In fact, I don’t think I’m feeling a hundred percent quite yet even right now. This must be my week of pains because I've had all kinds of pain this week - mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and physically. Even woke up with a stiff neck and aching back today. And, had recurring migraines too. Youch.
Anyway, needless to say, the photos from Friday are few and far between.
Just about managed to get up to help with getting the kids ready for school. But, hubby did most of the work that morning.
The girl, showing off some of her school projects.
The view from my bedroom window. But, I must admit, I barely looked out. Mostly working and resting.
Dishes piled up in the kitchen. This usually happens during the day. They don't usually get attended to until just before I start making dinner, as I prefer cooking in a clean kitchen.
Tried making myself lunch at around 1.30pm that day, as I haven't had anything to eat. I made rice, pork tocino, and fried egg. Took a bite and felt sick. Had to throw all of it in the bin. Ended up just eating Nice biscuits, some nachos, and drinking water for lunch (while watching a Disney movie). Later, I had some tea. Then, a short nap.
After napping, I did a bit more work then started making dinner. Leftover dough from the day before became homemade crispy crust bread. Also fried up sausages and made a risoni pasta from a packet. It was an easy, pleasant meal. The family enjoyed it, but I still wasn't feeling well enough to eat. So, I just had a piece of bread with butter and a bit of the risoni.
Friday after school is swim night for the girl. She has been attending swimming lessons since she was a baby and she loves the water. Usually, the boy has swimming lessons at the same time too, but he was allowed to have this term off.
After dinner, the kids started playing around with their dad. One of their favourite games is something the hubby made up. Something called "lock down", where they get gripped by hubby and they get slowly let off if they get the right password. It's silly fun that the kids love.
These two get along really well most times and are very sweet with each other. But, they do have their moments when we have to play referee/umpire.
Everyone fell asleep while I was working on the blog post. I could barely squeeze in bed. And, some nights, it's not easy to get the kids to move back to their own beds.
